NET-A-PORTER to launch sample sale site

We were reading one of our trend reports today and they slid in a cheeky little mention of NET's plan to open up an online sale shop. Cocosa just launched, TheOutnet.com is apparently launching next month (but you can register for email updates now) and this trend report says "luxury fashion and accessories e-tailer NET-A-PORTER is slated to launch a separate site that will offer deep discounts on designer goods (much of which we suspect will be leftover stock)."

At least they're all getting into the recession chic spirit with us.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Turns out TheOutnet.com IS Net's sale shop. Hurrah. And it launches in April 2009... you heard it here first, ladies and gents. It didn't feature in The Times until 7 March 2009.
