The online Alvin Valley sample sale started today http://www.gilt.com/s/alvin They have some really good deals! I just bought the ruffle blouse for $104, the park avenue blazer for $159, and the Lana suit for $287. I can't wait to get them! I hope they fit. You can return for credit so I figure it is worth it to buy and try on. They still have some other cute things available, but they are selling out quickly.
On a side note, I didn't like the idea of an online sample sale before, but it's actually really nice not having to push and shove (or leave work)!
