PRO TIPS from a Glitter Sale expert Jeanny Mai:

  1. Get in line as early! Some people will have camped out the day before. Seriously. Numbered wristbands get passed out at 7:45 am. If you sign up for the text alerts, you can leave until your number is called (giving you time to grab breakfast, nap in your car, etc).
  2. Buy a preview sale ticket to shop Thursday, 11/12 for $50 (SOLD OUT). If your patience for crowds and lines is low, and you want first pick of glamorous glitter items, this may be the best option for you.
