Luxury for LESS!

Get the benefits of a sample sale without having to fight the crowds. New Web sites are selling luxury items such as clothing, handbags and jewelery at more than 50 percent off. Editor's Closet is a shopping Web site that sells fashions, most of which are a season old but everything is discounted.

"It's Moschino. The retail was $1700. We're going to sell it for 350," a spokesperson explained.

Sort of like a sample sale on the web, but here's the catch. You've got to be a member to shop. Membership is free. Customers are notified two days before the start of each sale to see what will be available.

Another members-only site is called Gilt. This site sells women's and men's clothing from the "current season" and with prices up to 70 percent off retail.

A more accessories-based site is called Ideeli.

The site offers an area for customers to comment on merchandise. There are also giveaways and a staff of style experts.

Ideeli offers an upgraded membership option. For 8 dollars a month you can get into sales an hour early.
