If you’re anything like us, then the words “clearance” and “sale” get you really excited. This year, our Semi-Annual Clearance Sale is the biggest yet. With more than 250 top designers, and hundreds of different styles, the selection can be a little bit daunting. That’s where we come in: the employees of Rent the Runway. Who better to look to for shopping guidance than the people who live and work everything RTR? Read on to find out what actual RTR employees will be buying, and how they plan on getting the most out of this huge sale.

Name: Meaghan Gibbons

Position: PR Manager

What I’m Buying: I like to stock up on gifts during the Clearance Sale! Accessories in particular are what I’m on the lookout for especially for my mom, sister-in-law and any friends’ birthdays I know are coming up. Last year, I got my best friend a great pair of hoop earrings and she wears them all the time.

Pro Tip: Use the filters and sort by category or designer. I’ll be filtering by favorite designers: Eddie Borgo, Dannijo and Gorjana (for accessories), Loeffler Randall, Elizabeth and James and Anya Hindmarch (for bags).

What I’m Buying: The clearance sale is the perfect time to start thinking ahead to Fall and buying some classic cold-weather pieces that I know I’ll be wearing all season long. I’m looking for elevated pieces for work, transitional jackets, as well as a couple of statement pieces to liven up my wardrobe.

Pro Tip: Act fast because quantities are limited. If you see something you love buy it right away.
