Undoubtedly, Net-a-Porter's biannual sale is one of the best ones around -- it's certainly the one we most look forward to every winter and summer.

Apparently, we're not alone, because Net-a-Porter's site has been having outage issues since the sale went live shortly after midnight. The outages (because, yeah, we were up shopping between midnight and 2 a.m.) were rare in the early hours, but as of 8:45 a.m. this morning we're unable to do more than load the homepage and navigate the full-priced category pages: Trying to access the "Sale" section, conduct a product search or look at our shopping bag gives us the landing error image shown above.

A spokesperson for Net-a-Porter did not immediately respond to a request for further information.

Update (9:24 a.m.): A Net-a-Porter spokesperson says that, due to "incredible demand," the site is "experiencing some challenges that we are looking to resolve in the next hour."
