Flash sale sites come and go, but the original just can't be beat. That's why we still love vente-privee, the Parisian-based flash sales website that launched in 2001. Their concept was easy enough: each day the site would host a sale of a designer brand, available only to its members, taking the sample sale into the digital age. They sparked a revolution in online shopping, and after eleven years and several copy cat sites, finally came stateside in 2011 thanks to a partnership with American Express.
Needless to say, vente-privee has got this flash sale thing perfected, which is why we're excited that their next big sale is with one of our favorite brands, Elie Tahari. Elie Tahari opened his first boutique on Madison Avenue in 1974 - not bad for someone who moved to NYC from Israel with just $100 in his pockets. Within the past decade, his business has been expanding at an impeccable pace, broadening to include menswear, handbags, accessories, and licensees. Elie Tahari has come to characterize modern sophistication with his inspired collections of understated grace and elegance.
Now vente-privee is bringing Elie Tahari to its members at amazing prices. We're talking women's dresses starting at $118, women's shoes starting at $78, and handbags starting at $148. And if you need to pick up a little something for the man in your life, menswear will also be part of the exclusive sale. So if you aren't a vente-privee member yet, rush on over and sign up so you too can take part in this exciting sale! It goes live today, and you definitely will not want to miss out on these pieces from Elie Tahari.
