Christmas morning shouldn’t be the only day of the year to awake elated with hopes of new wardrobe treasures waiting to be discovered. Flash sale sites offer limited time shopping events to help designers and brands sell their excess inventory.
And we’ve found one to add to your radar: vente-privee. The site, which was founded in France in 2001, features 1,500 premium European and American companies for men’s and women’s apparel, jewelry, accessories, home and more. Although it's been around for awhile, we can't help but notice its awesome line-up as of late. Each featured brand’s sale is staged in its own “boutique” to offer a unique shopping experience in keeping with the retailer’s identity. Additionally, vente-privee has partnered with American Express; cardholders receive additional benefits, including free shipping on orders over $100 and access to private sales events. Their latest sale event, SUNO women's apparel, started today. New sale events are added every morning at 10 am EST.
This Saturday, in fact, you can eagerly greet the sunrise with the prospect of a new pair of Tom Ford shades. The designer’s fashion eyewear sale, which goes live December 7 and will run until December 10, features stunning frames in a range of styles—more than half off. Now, that’s something to wake up early for!
