BOSTON, Nov. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In advance of Black Friday and the "Thanksgiving Creep," Rue La La (www.ruelala.com), a leading online lifestyle-shopping destination, urges customers to enjoy the holiday and stay home. Rather than leaving family to brave long lines and crazy crowds, Rue La La is making it easy for those who want to get a jump start on holiday shopping, but do not want to leave their families. On Thanksgiving Day, the site will offer over 25 distinct boutiques, along with its "Gazillion Gifts" Gift Center, allowing shoppers to enjoy their family's company and shop online when the mood strikes.
"On behalf of all of us at Rue La La, stay home! The holidays are an opportunity to cherish time with friends and family, and our goal is to let gift-givers stay at home and enjoy it," said Robin Domeniconi, Chief Marketing Officer, Rue La La. "You won't need to camp outside of a store on Thanksgiving Day to find great value this season. We're making every effort to make holiday shopping stress-free with an expanded line-up of offerings so the only place you'll need to camp out is on your couch, surrounded by the ones you love."
Rue La La's Gift Center, which opened October 15 and runs through December 23, features a selection of gifts for men, women and children divided into product categories such as "gifts under $50," "gifts under $100," "luxury" and "one of a kind." The Gift Center's easy to navigate, one-stop shopping experience will be accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is filled with ever changing merchandise and is designed to complement the company's popular 48-hour limited time Boutiques. Gifts featured in the Gift Center Boutique will be replenished with new product as items sell out, so Members can continue to access great gift ideas for everyone on their list no matter where or when they want to shop.
Rue La La will also rollout new programming – "Goof Proof Gifting" – to make gift giving a no-brainer for its 10 million Members. The Goof Proof Gifting holiday programming includes:
- Guaranteed Gifting & Extended Returns: Rue La La's new Guaranteed Gifting program makes returning gifts simple.
