Here’s a little pre-Fashion’s Night Out deal from Gilt City New York.  For a limited time, you can buy $200 worth of fashions from Milly NY for $100.  It’s like a luxury FNO fashion coupon.  This deal is good for shopping this week only from Sept. 8th to Sept. 11th at Milly’s NYC boutique on the Upper East Side/ Madison Ave.  But there’s more.  If you buy the deal from Gilt City then you’ll be entered for the chance to win tickets to see the Milly NY show at New York Fashion Week.  You’ll also have access to a cocktail reception at the store on Sept. 8th.  Sweet, huh?  Use my Gilt City invite to join to check it out.  I found out about this deal by following Michelle Smith on Twitter @MillybyMichelle. I’ve been enjoying her Tweets tremendously and the fact that she writes them herself!  She and Burberry’s Christopher Bailey are some of my favorite social media voices.

And what would Fashion’s Night Out be without a new Clinique print bag from Milly? I own one of these and love it.  Michelle Smith has always been know for unique prints, and her Clinique bags show that off.  This year’s edition is a lavender print.  The bag comes with 8 trial size Clinique products and is complimentary with the purchase of a $25.00 Clinique product.  Remember, you could buy that $25.00 lipstick Anna Wintour told David Letterman about for a FNO deal? She didn’t realize you could go to Clinique and get this gift bag plus the lipstick.  Anna, please call next time you speak to Dave about FNO bargains. I can help!  This bag with the Clinique goodies is a nice deal, and a great travel bag for NYFW or anywhere else.  Michelle Smith will be in Bloomingdales New York 59th St. store at 5:30PM on Fashion’s Night Out promoting the bags. I interviewed her at Blomingdales previously during her Clinique signing.  Michelle Smith is as charming in person as her designs are.

Other Michelle Smith FNO appearances include:

Milly Flagship Boutique : From 7 to 8 p.m., Michelle will head to the Upper East Side to the new Milly Flagship Boutique at 900 Madison Avenue where shoppers can sip champagne and participate in the “Best Milly Look” contest by styling FNO merchandise with pieces from the Milly collection to win a Milly Boutique gift card. I think you can use your Gilt City NY Coupon to get in on this one!

Bergdorf Goodman To wind down the night, Michelle will head back to midtown to take part in the “Wheel of Fortune” celebrity spin at Bergdorf Goodman on 5F at 8:45 p.m.

Michelle, I need some of your high-octane energy for FNO and NYFW.  This schedule is inspirational! 🙂
