Best of Black Friday Sales 2019 - une femme d'un certain âge

Sifting Through The Black Friday Sales

A few of my picks from the Black Friday Sales 2019. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

Tis the season. I don’t know about you, but I feel like the Black Friday sale emails start coming earlier every year. 🎃 Seriously though, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. So to help you cut through the clutter, I’ve been browsing and bookmarking some favorites.

Best Of 2019 Black Friday Sales (A Highly Subjective Edit)

I’d like to start with some of my favorite smaller brands, because they often get lost in all of the hoopla.

French Kande Pineau medallion Black Friday special. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

French Kande is offering this beautiful medallion on a 28″ chain for just $30 with any purchase of $250 or more (also available in Brass). Just enter CYBER19 at checkout, and specify in comments whether you’d prefer silver or brass. This Cyber Monday promotion is only available for a limited time, and these often sell out quickly, so don’t miss it.

And there’s still time to enter to win a $300 French Kande gift card to use toward anything on the website. Winner will be drawn and announced next week.

Cashmere-silk leopard scarf from Black Co. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

From today through Monday December 2, Black Co. is offering 20% off all collections! (Including my favorite leopard silk-cashmere scarf.) Shop scarves, accessories, gifts, even men’s items. The 20% discount will be applied automatically, but they’ve kindly offered my readers an additional 10% discount with code FEMME10 ! International shipping is free on all orders over £125. Offer expires December 2.

Brian + MW Black Friday Beauty Box specials. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

Brian at Makeover Workshop has put together some Beauty Box promotions as well. These are some of my favorite products from Brian + MW, specially priced from Black Friday through Cyber Monday.

Shipping is free on all orders over $30 with code FREESHIP.

While it’s easy to find One Hit Wonders on sale, I’m always on the lookout for good quality basics. Not as thrilling perhaps, but far less likely to end up in a giveaway pile.

Best of Black Friday sales: Eileen Fisher ribbed merino sweater, 50% off. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

Nordstrom is having a heckuva Cyber sale. Lots of Eileen Fisher in the mix, including shoes and accessories. I like this ribbed merino wool sweater (not too boxy, not too snug) which is 50% off and also available in Black and Cashew (light beige). Plus here.

Eileen Fisher ribbed wool sweater in Plus on sale. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

There are a lot of good Plus selections too, including this ribbed wool cardigan, which is much better in person than it looks here.

Fleurette stand collar wool coat in vicuna. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

A good quality wool coat an investment piece for sure, but 33% off helps you hit your Cost Per Wear target a little sooner. Also available in Black and Camel.

On sale: AG Caden trousers in crimson. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

I have these trousers in a couple of colors. This Crimson color is 40% off. If you prefer a cooler red, there’s also a color called “Gooseberry” at 40% off.

Naturalizer daelynn tall boots on sale. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

There are a LOT of shoes and boots included in the sale, including these good-looking classic knee boots. They’re also available in Black and “Maple” (a lighter brown) and in Wide widths too.

Best of Black Friday sales: J.Jill merino crew neck sweater, details at une femme d'un certain age.

J.Jill has 40% off your entire purchase with code JOY40. I like this simple merino wool sweater with an interesting sleeve detail. It’s offered in several colors in Misses, Petites, Plus and Tall sizes. This would be a great addition to a cool season travel wardrobe! Merino wool is breathable, adjusts to a range of temperatures, and doesn’t pick up odors.

J.Crew Sophie sweater blazer in Black Watch plaid. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

Over at J.Crew it’s 50% off your purchase. This sweater blazer is just SO good in Black Watch Plaid

J.Crew cotton knit pajamas with French bulldog print. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

I bought these Bouledogue pajamas for myself, but they’d also make a great gift…

Chinti & Parker lemon cashmere sweater. Details and more Black Friday sales at une femme d'un certain age.

Chinti & Parker is my latest clothing crush. They’re spendy, but the quality is excellent and they’re offering up to 50% off for BF. This fun lemon print sweater (which I picked up recently during another retailer’s markdown) is lightweight enough for three season wear in our climate.

Availability on some items may be limited, but all of these were available in a full range of sizes at the time of posting.

Many retailers are doing daily promotions, so I’ll be updating this post throughout the day.

    Wow! I tried a couple of your links and could not access the websites. This is more like Blackout Friday.

        Your links are fine; it just took a long time before I could access Nordstrom’s and some other’s websites. Must be lots of shoppers out there. 🙂

    It is a bit confusing for entering to a chance at winning the French Kande piece. I hope this is correct, and I am fortunate enough to win, I would choose number 6. Thank you for the generosity, and all you do to help us. Best. Pat

    French Kande 5 would be my choice! I’ve hoped to find one of her pieces in my stocking for years, but Santa hasn’t obliged! Merry Christmas!

    Emme, your favorite travel cosmetics bag, is having a super sale plus BOGO. Makes me wonder if they are going out of business. I love my Emme bags.

      Thank you for this comment! I bought my Emme bag on recommendation from this blog, and upon seeing this went to the home site. The discounts were so great that I purchased 10 bags and two travel wraps to give as gifts to traveling friends and family. And now I have both the large and the small bags for myself.
