The Rue La La Experience
“We hope to bring our members a welcoming shopping experience full of discovery and pleasure,” Rue La La tells VentureBeat Profiles. “Our focus is a well-edited collection of sought-after offerings from the best brand names in the world — combined with helpful service.”
Rue La La acquires slow-selling and overstocked inventory from high-end retailers and offers it at reduced prices to members. Members receive e-mail alerts announcing the latest sales, which last only 48 hours.
Invitation-only membership is free. Members shape the community by inviting new members, earning a $10 Rue La La credit when each new friend joins and places their first order. Rue La La provides it’s members with access to premium lifestyle brands for apparel, home, beauty, travel and experiences and more at up to 70 percent off retail.
“Since some items sell out (inventory includes anywhere from two dozen to several hundred of each item, and shoppers aren’t privy to the totals), members are motivated to click and buy quickly,” according to Boston.com. “The adrenal charge of fast-paced, exclusive sales and the ease and inconspicuousness of shopping online make for a compelling combination.”
