Black Friday: Sales & Wishlist

November 20, 2015 No Comments

Black Friday. It can be super intense. However, it’s a great way to try and get some amazing deals on items that you’d like to invest in. I usually use Black Friday as a way to kick off my Christmas shopping, look for holiday dresses and find some great investment pieces. Since Black Friday deals keep coming out earlier and earlier I thought I would share some of my favorite deals that may be reappearing this year as well as my Black Friday wishlist & gift inspiration.

First Stop: Macys

While Macys pretty much has sales all year round, you can definitely find some awesome things during their Black Friday sales. My first Black Friday in Chicago, I found what I call my sleeping bag coat. It’s the only thing that can protect me during below zero temps!

For sales, last year Macys started their Black Friday at 6:00PM on Thanksgiving and then released more deals early in the morning on Black Friday. Not only do they have doorbuster deals for every department but they often have multiple coupons that expire through out the day. Honestly, it can all be a little confusing with all the different coupons and what they  can be used for. But if you get organized you can get some great stuff for really low prices.


I do enjoy me some JCrew. Based on last year’s sales you can expect 25-30% off all items for early morning risers! Stock up on all things comfy! I love their hats, scarves & socks!


This will be one of my main stops {shocking}. Right now they are doing an early Black Friday in stores this upcoming Sunday with 25% everything in stores. You can probably also expect them to have an even higher percentage off sale items.


Zara actually has two seasonal sales each year. Their Summer Sale which usually happens in July and then their winter sale which occurs a little before Christmas. Some years I’ve been a little not impressed with Zara’s Black Friday but last year they really upped their game adding more styles to their sale at an even better discount. I can’t remember the exact discount from last  year but I want to say some items were around 40-50% off.


I just discovered Artizia this year through one of my coworkers and now it’s one of my favorite stores! Last year they had an online sale of 60% off and free shipping on Cyber Monday. That’s a really good deal! More cocoons and fuzzy things!


They already have some great deals on clothes but Black Friday gets even better! Last year they had tons of items marked down to crazy prices and Cyber Monday was 30% off site wide. Definitely add a few things to your gift list from here!


And for those of you that dislike people and crowds and shopping in public there is always Shopbop with their friends & family sale of 25% off! And tons of stores participate in Cyber Monday deals so you can skip all the madness.

I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving and weekend of sales! Make your list and plan ahead!
