The best of Black Friday sales from favorite brands

I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving, if you celebrate it. It was just the three of us this year, and though I love putting on a big Thanksgiving do, I appreciated a quiet and more relaxing day after what’s been a very busy month.

If you’ve been holding out for some serious discounts, now is a great time to find what you’re looking for while selections are still good. Here are a few of my picks from the Black Friday sales…

I’ve been wearing this “Juliette” sweater blazer quite a bit recently, and took advantage of 50% off at J.Crew to order a second (darker) color in “Cedar Wood.” (Winters & some Autumns, check out the “Old Forest” color in this piece; it’s a gorgeous dark pine green!) I’m wearing the X-Small. Use code FRIDAY for 50% off + extra 10% off at J.Crew.

The cashmere crewneck is from Lands’ End. They’re one of the few brands that does sweaters in Petite lengths (also Tall & Plus). The quality is excellent, and all of the colors in this style are included in the promotion. I’m wearing Petite Small. Save up to 70% at Lands’ End with code TURKEY.

I love these “Prima” corduroys from AG. (Previously shown HERE.) They dress up or down, and are as easy to style as jeans. The wale is very fine, and they’re offered in several colors. I’m wearing size 28 and had them hemmed. For Black Friday, AG currently has 30% off sitewide, so i snagged a pair of my favorite “ex-boyfriend” jeans in a darker wash.

I’ve had these colorful bracelets for a while now, but here’s a very similar set at Shopbop, 25% off with code HOLIDAY. (Discount code is good sitewide!)

Scarves & more…

The leopard print scarf I’m wearing above is one of my very favorites, from BLACK | Luxury Accessories. Like all of their cashmere and cashmere blend scarves, it’s warm but lightweight and not at all bulky. It’s perfect for travel, and the one I always pack.

BLACK is a UK-based brand that specializes in cashmere and other luxury accessories. I’ve worn their scarves for years, and recently collaborated with BLACK and Red Leopard on a limited scarf collection in seasonal palettes. They are offering 20% off all collections for Black Friday, so if you’re looking for gifts or need to upgrade your cool weather accessories, now’s the time.

If you love leopard print, but your best colors are cool-based, check out these options in Navy and Black/Gray.

This Emerald Green is one of those colors that looks stunning on so many Winters!

Black offers free shipping to the US on all orders over $175.

The best of the rest of the Black Friday sales…


Madewell has 50% off your purchase with code TGIF, and that includes both full-price and some items already marked down. Above, I love the asymmetrical closure on that wool coat!


You can save 50% off 1 item (until noon today) and 40% off your entire purchase until midnight at Talbot’s. This cute striped cashmere sweater (also available in a blue combo) is available in Misses, Petite and Plus sizes. (Though the stripes are both warm and cool colors, with that cream background probably works best for Springs & Autumns. But some Summers might be able to make it work. Winters: the navy/blue/green option is better for you.)

Johnny Was

For those of you whose style leans more Bohemian, Johnny Was has 25% off sitewide with code HOLIDAY. Autumn Bohemians, this geo print burnout kimono jacket has your name on it!

Lo & Sons

Whether you’re planning to travel, or are looking for gift ideas for someone who is, you’ll want to check out the sale at Lo & Sons for up to 70% off. That includes my favorite Pearl crossbody (lots of new colors, too!), and this newly introduced Nouvelle crossbody bag in recycled nylon. It’s light as a feather, but still has lots of interior organization, and a comfortable padded shoulder/crossbody strap.


For Black Friday, you can save 30% on almost everything at Vince with code SAYHOLIDAY. (And an extra 40% off sale styles, including my favorite Benita mules.) Above, this v-neck cashmere cardigan is a timeless style that’s also great for travel. It’s also available in a pretty light blue for you Summers.

  1. i am so confused! i am blonde with dark brown eyes. i thought i was a summer but i could be a spring. 🙁 i love the cedar wood sweater blazer but i really want the Old Forest green! Think I could wear both colors?

    1. Hi Marcia, if you’re an Autumn, you might be able to wear both colors, but without having done a color analysis on you, it’s impossible for me to tell you which season you might be. My suggestion would be to look at the colors you wear most, and see which color sweater blazer would coordinate best.

  2. Thank you for all the great choices! As I was decorating for Christmas yesterday, I found myself applying the three color rule you shared when it comes to dressing. It was so helpful! I always notice when something is a bit off, but don’t always know what needs tweaking. To my amazement, when I tried the color rule everything came together beautifully. I plan to use this for future interior decorating as well as clothing. I can’t thank you enough!
