Ideeli is one of the many invite-only shopping sites that have started to crop up on the internet. Gone are the days of lining up with a horde of bloodthirsty women waiting for the doors to open on a major sale. With the internet, you don’t even have to leave your house (although I can guarantee that you still have competition ready to pull your virtual hair for the last size 7 shoe).
As a member of Ideeli, you will receive a daily email informing you of the day’s sales. You have the option of shopping as a second-row member (cost: free), allowing you to start shopping at midday. If you choose to upgrade to a first-row member (cost: $6.99 a month), you’ll be able to start shopping at 11am. This definitely comes in handy when you see a Marc Jacobs Sunglasses sale with prices from 79% off. First-row members also have access exclusive sales that second-row members do not have access to.
You can also get in on some giveaway action at Ideeli. Coming up soon they will be offering an Emporio Armani Petal Clutch. Just yesterday they were offering a Coach handbag and back when I first joined, they were giving away a couture dress by Oscar De La Renta.
RIGHT NOW: The Ideeli Red Sale is taking place as we speak and will be ending today! The sale is your absolute last chance to get some amazing steals – there are some huge names at up to 91% off, including Just Cavalli and Kensie, some incredible shoes from Pucci and Badgley Mischka and handbags from Lambertson Truex!
BEN SHERMAN – Save up to: 70% Off (Prices start at: $15): There’s something about the often quirky yet always spot-on British style that seems elusive to those of us across the pond. How do they always manage to look so put together and still cutting-edge at the same time? We may never know the answer, but we can share their chic aesthetic by taking a few cues from one of England’s finest lines, Ben Sherman. This event will feature a women’s casual collection of ready-to-wear. This event is scheduled to start at 11:00 AM for 1st Row members and at 12:00 PM for 2nd Row members. This event will run for 36 hours, or until it sells out.
JUST CAVALLI JEWELRY – Save up to: 63% Off (Prices start at: $29): And like the designer himself, Just Cavalli makes a statement, especially with its head-turning accessories. From biker chick to rocker chic, Cavalli’s inspirations shine through, bright as the Italian sun. Tough and sexy details, executed with precision, transform rough-and-tumble pieces into seductive accessories. This event will feature jewelry. This event is scheduled to start at 11:00 AM for 1st Row members and at 12:00 PM for 2nd Row members. This event will run for 36 hours, or until it sells out.
