Hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving!! The best holiday sales are coming in so hot… it’s frankly burning up my inbox! I plan to keep this post updated throughout the weekend so check back here. Instead of sharing an insane run down of every sale out there — that majorly overwhelms me personally — I wanted to share with you the sales I’m loving and the best finds at each.
A few shopping tips to stay on track during these best holiday sales: buy what you need and what you can afford. Do not buy what others — bloggers included! — say you need. This includes four of the same sweater, or so you can have a “slipper rotation” (seriously, WTF is this and why did I really see a blogger who I do adore share this?!). Create a list so you don’t overbuy. Save receipts so you can return once all the packages arrive. Remember experiences and memories count more than things. Within reason, I’m always willing to spend more on tickets or an experience than a gift or toy.
12 Best Holiday Sales
Get up to 30% off!! Amazing, amazing sale on my beloved curling wand and so many of their hair tools/products I love! I use the 1″ barrel; it’s ideal for most length hair. You can find all the Black Friday deals here, use code BLACKFRIDAY30!
The hair care is great, but if you’re getting a curling iron add these brushes to your order — this size is perfect, particularly when I’m touching up my pony tail, etc; and you can keep a second in your travel case or gift to a friend. They’re insanely amazing. And, this Bali Beach roller ball smells incredible. I rarely use perfume because I don’t love strong scents but use this daily now… this is light yet beautiful, instantly transporting you to vacation.
Get 35% off any full-price purchase, and 15% off custom orders, at one one of the best fashion jewelry brands (and where prob. 60% of mine is from). The hoops are so on point right now, and the three variations of my favorite ring are the best deal on the site: this , this and this $12 rings (marked down from $40ish); I have this one and am always getting asked about it. They look way pricier, and have seen brands selling similar for $200+.
These earrings are my go-to dressy pair, and they still look brand-new three or four years later. I also added this delicate ring to my cart; so pretty. Highly recommend BaubleBar for you or any gifting this year!
The Cyber Monday deals are already here! Save 30% off on women’s, kids and men’s clothes and shoes (yay!) and there are honestly so many good sales on Disney clothes, toys, home decor, etc. Check it out here.
Get 60% off the entire store, plus an extra 60% off all clearance with code YAYDEALS! Which I think is one the best holiday sales currently taking place! These leopard flats have been a top five purchase the last two years — they’re seriously the BEST, and I now have the black pair in my cart; they’re just so comfy and have worn so well!! This is also the prettiest holiday top, and they have the best statement tees (so many good ones like this for a coordinating besties photo!). J. Crew Factory pjs also make fantastic gifts (for you or someone else, no judgement!), and don’t forget the boys and girls’ sections… I get most of Evan’s cute clothes here when I want the look without the price tag.
Black Friday sales are already here! The site is so vast that it really depends on what you need. A few favorites include the faux leather Spanx leggings, Hanky Panky underwear, the coziest pullover, and my absolute favorite throw (we have three around the house, and also great for gifts!). I also personally love Nordstrom’s “gifting section” — it’s organized so well by person and price. Here’s what I’m loving from the sale:
Get 40% off the store and trust me here… BEST JEANS EVER! AWESOME TOPS! FAB DRESSES!
Forget the ’90s Abercrombie we all remember, it’s SO good now. I used to save for designer denim, no longer… I’m obsessed with Abercrombie jeans (which I found thanks to other 30-something bloggers!)… they seriously make your tush look good, fit well all around, have tons of washes, sizes and styles, and I like how they don’t have any seam detailing on the back pockets. I also love their thermals, ribbed body suits, etc., and I LOVE Abercrombie Kids (which I only found this summer!) for Sarah.
Take 50% off everything, no exclusions! I just popped in there a couple of days ago and was SO impressed! I definitely got the sports bra and velvet pants shown below, and have a few more of these items now in my cart (I’ll share my try-on via Instagram stories ASAP).
Take 20% off my favorite local jewelry designer (who now sells around the country)! I have collected so many of her pieces over the years and am so happy to see you all have as well. I’ve even gifted them to friends, my mom, my gram, etc over the years. These are one of my favorite pairs of earrings, Sarah wears this rainbow pair and I am absolutely going to pre-order these pearl huggies… so cute, right?! She also has the regular huggies, now under $30. Such a great price for a pair of gold-plated quality earrings! It’s worth browsing her collection; I also have a couple of her beaded bracelets that are great on their own or even mixed with others you have (and a beautiful under $20 gift idea).
Take 50% off the entire store with code BLACKFRIDAY. I’ve renewed my love with Ann Taylor this year and have picked up so many good pieces that I’ve used for working, for speaking, and just nicer evenings out. I’m also a huge fan of their shoes – they’re beautiful, fit well and nicely constructed. My only frustration candidly is the clothing sizing; I waver between a petite and regular (petite in most dresses, skirts and pants, regular in tops), and then always have to size down, too.
Here’s just a few of the Black Friday sale items featured above…
