Gilt Groupe Blogger Breakfast

Last Friday, I attended the Gilt Groupe blogger breakfast with Gilt’s co-founder Alexandra Wilkis Wilson.

Last Friday, I attended the Gilt Groupe blogger breakfast with Gilt’s co-founder Alexandra Wilkis Wilson. The event was held at the Peninsula Hotel and  hosted by Skirt PR.  As bloggers arrived we were greeted with mimosas and employees of the Gilt Groupe; after a little networking we were seated and greeted by Alexandra Wilkis the companies co-founder.

Alexandra gave us a brief history of Gilt and told us about the growth Gilt has experienced since its inception. We then heard from Tyler Thoreson who works with Gilt Man. Tyler told us how Gilt man can change the way men dress with affordable yet stylish clothing options; once the presentation was done it was time to eat!

During breakfast Gilt employees gave us more information about Gilt and told us more about their newest venture Gilt City Chicago.  Gilt City Chicago offers you the best of Chicago for less. You can buy deals at local restaurants, salons and other businesses to name a few.
