Outnet sale craze hits the globe...fashionistas scramble for £1 designer items...a look at what you missed

posted on: Friday, 16 April 2010

At 7:24 am we received this email:
Unfortunately, I, Emily Johnston, was sitting at breakfast with my boyfriend. It took every ounce of willpower not to get up and run for the nearest computers. The breakfast was, however, cut short and when I called the office the girls were already getting error messages while trying to log in.
This was the message we got all morning....
Then we finally got on only to find that nearly everything was sold out! Here's a quick snapshot of some of the items we were hoping to get our hands on....(notice all the sold out stickers)....
Outnet...please have a £2 two year party!!!!!


  1. I was experiencing the same thing!!! I thought it was me not being able or enough fast, but my question is: if everybody wasn't able to get on their website, who bought all the items???
    I've posted on my blog about that just a few minutes ago...

  2. Happened to me too! I managed to snag a Chloe skirt though :)

  3. I got a Marc Jabobs dress after 30 mins of trying, logged on at 7:23 am

  4. It was shambolic.

    Clicked on the link as soon as I received the email at 07:24 this morning - saw the page for a few minutes and then it was fail all the way. Surprised that they didn't expect this level of traffic after sending out the RSVPs and the disaster that was the Clearance Sale in March. Two sale-fails in as many months? Pretty poor going really.

    This is my account of what happened this morning...


  5. I have wasted 3 hours of my morning trying to access this poorly managed event. When I finally get in and am able click on an item, guess what it had sold out. This happened to me in March during the clearance sale too. Lots of negative publicity for the Outnet by the sounds of it, maybe next time they will think through the idea and give us a chance to actually purchase an item! Very frustrating

  6. Most of the items had limited availability anyway (like 2 in stock) so you wouldn't have a hope in hells chance of getting it, the lucky sod that got to choose 5 would have nabbed all the bags, the mark jacobs frog bag was sold out weeks ago on the website and yet somehow was in the sale???? I managed to finally get through, sorted the clothes into my size and chose the only thing that looked half decent...only for it to sell out before I got there....very bad planning, very badly managed and congrats to anyone who did get something but I bet it won't fit when you get it so :p. lol Im not bitter at all.... :)

  7. I'm still furious about the whole thing.

  8. Wow, I think the UK had the best items, and more items! The US selection was not as good. I did score a $650 Lela Rose cream blouse that is gorgeous. Can't wait to get it!

    Things went very smoothly for me. I wonder what the Outnet's Tweets meant, kept saying "it's like a lottery", does that mean only certain email addresses were picked out of a hat to get through?
