Gilt GroupeIf you haven't signed up for Gilt Groupe yet, better get to it!

The members-only shopping site announced its partnership with Target today. What does that mean for you?

Well, for starters, Gilt Groupe members get to buy select items from Target's new Tucker clothing line, Mulberry bags, and John Derian home goods, before anyone else!

According to the Gilt Groupe site: "Be among the first to get your hands on Tucker’s dainty tops and ladylike dresses, boasting pretty butterfly and diamond prints; Mulberry’s chic carryalls, from patent satchels to denim cross-bodies; and John Derian’s charming decoupaged tablewares, picture frames and storage bins." I'm in! Are you? Read on to find out how to join Gilt Groupe, pronto!


I've been a Gilt member myself for months, so you can join through me (here's the link to sign up) if you'd like, or you can simply register on your own by going through

Once your membership is approved, you have access to daily sales on items from designers like Donna Karan, Proenza Schouler, Rachel Roy, and Calvin Klein. I'll be honest, I'm a bit surprised that Target chose to partner with Gilt Groupe over some of the other flash-sale sites- It's the most high end of any of the sites with which I'm familiar, and most of its sale items are well beyond my budget, even with Gilt's fantastic discounts.

But who cares where they've partnered, so long as I get first dibs on Target's new collaborative collections?!

There's no downside to a Gilt Groupe membership. I get daily e-mails about their sales, but you can opt out of those if you'd like.

So! Now that Target and Gilt Groupe are partners, will you join just to get your hands on Target's new lines before anyone else?
