28 Nov 2020 Black Friday sales
Target has some good deals, but the clothing deals are slacking compared to previous years. I got my Dyson for Christmas a few years ago and use it daily, essential if you have dogs that shed. I use my Nespresso machine daily to brew espresso for iced lattes. I don’t use my Keurig as often as my Nespresso machine, but I love this one because it fits on my desk. I got a ninja blender my freshman year of college and use it a few times a week. I use my AirPods daily, great for running and listening to podcasts on road trips or the morning commute.
This sweater is my favorite and on sale for $17.50. It pairs great with Barbour coats and a Stetson. I always have a problem with the necks on sweaters being too tall, but this one is perfect! A classic, I have it in four colors: rust, black, cream, and olive green. I wore one of them to a bonfire, threw it in the washing machine afterward, and hung it to dry. Thus, I can attest they hold up well.
Madewell can get pricy, yes. But, they create classic pieces that are “made well” and will last a lifetime in your closet. We love a good sale! Madewell is running up t0 50% off and 30% off almost everything else. I got this houndstooth blazer on sale for $60, truly a steal.
I’ve been looking at getting the iconic transport bag since high school and probably every year during the Black Friday sale. I finally bit the bullet and got one. You can pick between a small, medium, and large size to suit your needs. I wanted the medium initially, but got the large so it would fit my laptop and iPad. All of my bags are black, so I went with a cognac and a subtle, embossed monogram.
Most of my Black Friday shopping occurred at Madewell. They have the best jeans and carry petite, which is a must for me — 5’1 here. A good pair of jeans will take you places. I ordered this v-neck sweater for $35 in both colors, classic and a great deal. This tee is on sale for $12.49, quality basic in black and white. I ordered these fun sneakers on a whim for $45. We’ll see what I think when they arrive.
Anthropologie is so great that it filled up two widgets (I didn’t know that was possible until now). Everything is 30% off, Anthropologie never does sales this good. I’ve been looking for the perfect white sneaker for months, and the vejas did the trick, on sale for $84. I couldn’t justify this set of lowball glasses and matching decanter, but they are gorgeous.
Anthro is my favorite place to purchase Christmas gifts for my friends. They have the best candles, mugs, and sweet initial items. I love finishing off a gift with a Christmas ornament, custom for the receiver.
Last December, I purchased a set of frosted champagne flutes with gold rims from Anthropologie. I bought the matching wine glasses as a college graduation present to myself in May. 100% worth the investment! A great way to treat yourself. Or, get a matching set for your favorite newly weds. Bonus points if they match your bar cart. I’ve linked my favorite cocktail sets above.
J. Crew Is running 50% off everything and 60% off clearance. I purchased this sweater blazer last year and wear it all the time! It’s great over tanks and dresses in the office. I’ve had pixie pants since early high school, a staple. I love this classic pair of pajamas. I love this cozy turtleneck with sweatpants or jeans and a pair of New Balance sneakers.
If you are new here, I worked at Kendra Scott. They are running their best sale– 30% off almost everything and 25% off fine jewelry. I wear this cross necklace and these three rings (1, 2, 3) every day. These are my go-to hoops. Almost all of the jewelry I own is Kendra Scott, great brand with a great mission.
The Color Bar is my favorite. You can pick from several styles, metals, and stones to create a custom piece. I would recommend doing this in store because it is quite the experience.
I think I have seen better Black Friday deals in past years. I know other retailers have great deals going on, but I wanted to share what I shopped. These were my top picks. If you are shopping for the men in your life, Dick’s Sporting Goods has 25% off everything and up to 50% off other items.
