Gilt, best known for distributing Birkin bags like an elite Santa Claus during Christmas, is launching an event combining shopping for clothes, accessories and puppies. It’s hosting “The Dog Days of Summer,” a celebration of #NationalDogDay (hashtag optional). Finally, a social media holiday that’s actually worth celebrating, because everyone will be given the opportunity to ‘gram their dog.
Flash sale site Gilt is providing free dog adoptions in New York City, so start online shopping for the perfect puppy. There aren’t many accessories that rival the Birkin, especially since it’s the ultimate investment piece–but a new dog will certainly earn more likes on social media.
Mark your calendar and start buying pet food. During the weekend of August 26, Gilt will pay for you to adopt (wo)man’s best friend. They will cover the cost of dog adoptions for the first 20 approved adopters during a puppy party hosted in partnership with the North Shore Animal League America. Simply stop by the Gilt shop in Saks OFF 5th uptown. Even if you’re not in the market for a new dog, you can still play with the pups on hand, or shop for sweaters and scarves for your own animal at home.
