When we heard that theOutnet.com had a one-year anniversary coming up, we couldn't believe how quickly the time had passed. When we read that they were going to celebrate by selling more than 1,000 designer goods for $1 a pop, we couldn't believe our eyes. Seriously: Burberry, Proenza Schouler, Chloe, Marc Jacobs for $1. We assume you'll have to pay shipping on top of that, but still. It all happens on April 16, first-come, first-served. We hope they've beefed up their servers and back-end systems to handle the virtual mob of crazy shoppers that are bound to log on in droves. What's the Internet equivalent of elbowing a lady in the ribs to get to the Zac Posen dress first? [NY Post]
