Announced earlier this year, the new online fashion boutique,, designed by the team behind the designer fashion site is now well and truly up and running and I thought that I would check it out here.

This online designer sales fashion boutique is devoted to selling discounted designer womenswear and accessories. It's an exclusive online boutique where you can purchase designer clothing (Christian Lacroix, Zac Posen, Vera Wang Lavender and many more) and designer shoes (Christian Louboutin, Marc Jacobs, Jimmy Choo…), as well as designer handbags (Alexander McQueen, Chloe, Marni. Miu Miu…) and other accessories (Isharya, Kenneth Jay Lane, Bottega Veneta….) at heavily discounted prices – between 40% to 80% off the original price on international designer brands and fantastic savings of up to 80% off on specially selected items. TheOutnet stocks a dazzling array of designer fashions and will guarantee authenticity with each and every item sold on the site.

Hey don’t you just love the Jimmy Choo, Maxine shoulder bag shown in the picture above and these Christian Louboutin C'est Moi shoe boots!!

Flash Designer Sales promises to be different and some features that go towards achieving this are what it calls exclusive Flash Designer Sales aimed at keeping things interesting for the true fashion thrill-seeker. These are time-limited Pop-Up Sales, Giveaways and what it calls, Going, Going, Gone Sales that will give the fashionista that 'get it before it goes' buzz.

Pop-Up Designer Sales

The Pop-Up Sale host themed designer sales (e.g. by brand) that are available for a limited time, usually up to 72 hours.

Going, Going, Gone Designer Sales

The Going, Going, Gone Sale is a new and unique way for you to snap up a designer label at an irresistible price. These sales only run for a very short amount of time. I say unique because each Going, Going, Gone Sale will begin at the featured designer item's original price and then the price will drop continuously until the stock sells out or the sale ends (as indicated by a timer); watch the price drop as the clock ticks, but hurry or you may miss out. As soon as you click 'Add to Bag' this will lock in the price so if you shop too early then you could miss out on a super-low price for that designer item. So in effect you choose the price that you want to pay for that item. Of course, if you leave it too late you might miss out as there may be no more stock left.

To give you some idea on the type of items that will be included in the Going, Going, Gone Sales, this gorgeous Kerala shoulder designer handbag by Chloe went up for grabs with a starting price of £666.00 for UK fashionistas and closed about an hour ago at the knockout price of £330.85!!!

This Chloe Chocolate (Brown) leather slouchy shoulder bag has brass hardware and two straps at top, a flap across top with clasp fastening, feet on base, horseshoe charms and cotton lining.

Designer Giveaways

TheOutnet will also be offering fabulous Giveaways where you'll have the chance to win the chicest prizes - with absolutely no purchase necessary.

So what do I think about this new Designer Sales Outlet!

Overall I think that designer sales online boutique is a great concept and should certainly give the NET-A-PORTER competition something to think about. The list of international designers is impressive but what would you expect from NET-A-PORTER. The site looks great too however there are a few annoying navigational aspects to it.

Also, take note that  there are different sale items depending on your location. For example, while in the UK the item that was just sold in the Going, Going, Gone Sale was the Chloe Kerala shoulder bag as pictured above and with an original price of £666, in the United States the item in the Going, Going, Gone Sale with now less than an hour of clock ticks left to go, is a Prune glossy leather Chloe Saskia small tote with an original price of $1,900.
