My Picks From The Black Friday Sales So You Can Skip The Mall Today

Best Of Black Friday (Besides Leftovers)

velvet jacket

A few highlights from the Black Friday sales…

No need to battle the crowds today. Pour yourself a cup of coffee, grab a slice of pie, and let’s get to it…

Talbots is offering 50% off a single item until noon Friday, and 40% off the entire purchase until midnight Friday.  This pretty velveteen blazer is available in several colors, and in Misses, Petites, Women and Women’s Petite size ranges.

black faux fur jacket

This cute faux fur jacket really caught my eye. I love that collar! Available in Misses and Petites.

leopard shoes and rain boots

Talbot’s has a pretty impressive selection of shoes and boots too, and many styles in narrow and wide widths. You know my “thing” for leopard footwear though, and so I had to share these flats and rain boots!

And moving on….

weatherproof suede chelsea boot

Holy Moly! You don’t usually see Aquatalia footwear this deeply discounted! This ankle boot is cute, comfortable and weatherproof. What’s not to love?

weatherproof patent leather ankle boots

I’ve been ogling these weatherproof patent leather booties for months now, and people, I just pulled the trigger. Sizes are limited, so I didn’t dither. Available in Navy too, but also limited sizes.

If you’ve had your eye on any Eileen Fisher pieces, there are a lot of choices currently marked down…

boiled wool kimono jacket

Including my favorite red jacket at 52% off!! Plus size here.

Burberry Brit parka

Love Burberry but not a trench person? Here’s a hooded parka at 25% off. (Also available in Navy and Black.)

fringed cashmere scarf

Anyone on your gift list who might need a cashmere scarf?  This one’s 60% off.

textured coatigan

I adore this textured coatigan from Vince.

quilted chain handle tote

Classic style at a nice price.

blackwatch plaid blazer

Over at J.Crew, it’s 40% off your entire purchase with code HOLIDAY.  This Regent blazer in Blackwatch plaid is worth a look…

navy suede OTK boots

If you’ve been Over-the-Knee-Curious, perhaps these boots in navy suede will tempt you. I’ve tried them on and they’re really comfortable. There’s a zipper at the ankle that makes for easier on and off too.

neutral Fair Isle sweater

Madewell is offering 25% off all purchases with code THATSALE.  I really like their take on the Fair Isle sweater in neutrals and a more graphic design.

bell sleeve peplum sweater

Ann Taylor is offering 50% off everything with code CELEBRATE.  This bell sleeve sweater might answer a lot of those “what to wear to ______” questions this season.

medium duxbury ink


If you’ve had your eye on a Brahmin handbag, Friday only they’re offering $50 off a purchase of $250 or more with code BF16. This medium Duxbury satchel is one of my favorite styles, and I love this deep blue “Ink” color.

Also worth mentioning…

Rag & Bone: 25% off everything with code BLACKFRIDAY25

Anthropologie: 30% off everything with code LETSGO.

Bloomingdale’s has a “buy more save more” promotion, up to 20% off, plus up to 50% off selected items.

AG Jeans is offering 30% off everything with code BF16. (Love my AG’s!)

Equipment has 25% off most styles. Still a fan of their cashmere “Sullivan” cardigan.

Gap has 50% off everything with code TGIF50.

40% off select designer styles at Barney’s. No code needed.

Neiman Marcus has 40% select styles, plus $50 off a $200 purchase with code THANKFUL. (The $50 off promo is good for just a couple of days.) If you’re looking for Eileen Fisher pieces, they usually have a pretty good selection including Plus and Petite sizes.

Shopbop has a “buy more save more” promotion going this week, up to 25% off with code GOBIG16.

I’ll update over the day as more offers come online.

      Hi Val, Thanks! I’ve collected a few AG’s over the years. 😉 For a slim, straight leg I love the Primas and lately I’ve been wearing these Jodi crop slit side jeans a LOT. (as I’m not as tall as the model, they hit me just above the ankle.)

    Oh that lovely red coat! Thanks for the heads up, it’s been on my radar since you modeled it and looked so pretty!

    The Burberry coat is on my Christmas list! Love that it has a liner.

    This is a great line-up: thank you! Now off to shop (in pjs).

    Hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving! We’ll actually be heading to the mall later because Bonaparte spotted a pair of trousers in the J. Crew catalog and thought they would be good for our trip tomorrow. For me, I’ve packed jeans. If I want to dress up, I’ll wear pointy heels.

    I did, however, order some hair from uniwigs on this black friday. They are having a 30% off on toppers! One can never order enough hair!!
