Cyber Monday: Travel-Friendly Picks

Eileen Fisher merino wool sweater royal blue

Whether you’ll be traveling for the holidays or in the new year, it’s a good time to save on pieces that will work well as part of a travel wardrobe. I’ve pulled together a few suggestions from the Cyber Monday sales. (Some styles and sizes may have limited availability.)


Merino wool is one of my favorite fabrics for travel. It’s lightweight, washable, resists picking up odors, and (in my experience) is comfortable in a wide range of temperatures. The merino pullover above is 50% off. It has an easy fit but will still layer nicely underneath a jacket or coat. In sizes XX-Small to X-Large, and other colors.

Halogen v-neck grey merino cardigan. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

A cardigan is a versatile option for travel; wear it open as a top layer, or buttoned as a mid-layer. This merino wool v-neck cardigan is a very budget-friendly choice, and offered in several colors.

Grey cashmere hoodie, great piece for travel. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

Cashmere is lightweight and very warm, which makes it a great option for cool-weather travel. A cashmere hoodie is a cozy choice for the plane, too. This one’s currently 40% off, and available in 5 colors.


Via Spiga olive packable raincoat. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

This packable raincoat is now 35% off, and still available in the Regular size range. (See how I wore it HERE.)

Eileen Fisher Plus relaxed blazer black. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

This soft blazer in Plus will go from day to dinner, and is lightweight enough to wear underneath your outerwear. Currently 40% off! (In Misses sizes, it’s currently 25% off.)

Eileen Fisher silk crewneck long sleeve tee in black. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

I don’t often see these silk jersey tees go on sale, but you can currently save 40% on black and Soft White. These make a great base layer, but are also polished enough to wear on their own.


Blondo black suede waterproof booties. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

These suede waterproof booties are very well-reviewed and are a budget-friendly option. Available in 4 colors.

Aquatalia chelsea boots espresso leather. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

If you’ve had your eye on a pair of Aquatalia weatherproof boots or shoes, now’s your chance. For Cyber Monday, they’re offering 40% off sitewide! They’re also offering free next day shipping. Above, it’s hard to go wrong with a pair of classic Chelsea boots.

Leopard print AND weatherproof? Yes!!

Sorel Joan of Arctic black winter boots. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

If you need some serious winter boots, these are well-reviewed, and at 25% off are a more budget-friendly option.

Bags And Luggage

Lo and Sons Pearl crossbody in Graphite. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

Lo and Sons has several great travel bags on sale, including my favorite, the Pearl, at 50% off! I really like this softly metallic “graphite” color, which will go with everything.

Set of 6 packing cubes in pink. Details at une femme d'un certain age.A 6-piece set of packing cubes is now 40% off. (These were one of my Travel Gift recommendations.)

  1. Susan,

    I really enjoy reading your blog! I’ve been thinking about purchasing Lo and Sons “Pearl Bag” for quite some time. I have a trip to Croatia next June and this bag seems as though it would be perfect. I have a question for you. Do you prefer the Saffiano or the Napa leather for the bag? Can you also explain your preference?

    Thank you so much!


    1. Hi Catherine, Thanks! The black Pearl bag I’ve used on prior trips is the Napa leather. It’s softer than the saffiano, and might be a little more prone to scuffing. (The scuffs polish out though, at least on the black.) The saffiano will be waterproof and more durable, and more structured. Hope this helps!

      1. I had the same question so this answer helps. Wish the Napa leather came in the graphite color but the graphite color seems more versatile for traveling…..might be able to get away with only 1 handbag for a trip.

  2. Hi Susan,
    The cashmere sweater at JCrew is not 50 percent off. It’s excluded from the Cyber sale.
    Enjoy reading your blog.

  3. I have the black Blondo boots and they are fantastic! An excellent stand in for the higher priced Aquatalia ( which I have in leather) the Blondo suede is waterproof and great for travelling in rainy or slushy climes. It cleans up beautifully. However they are not particularly warm for very cold temps. This is my second pair of Blondo boots and I would highly suggest going up a half size. I wear a 9 and the 9.5 fits much better especially if you are walking. My heavy duty shearling boots are Blondo and I had to size up as well. Thank you Susan for this great sale info!!

  4. That merino pullover also comes in an utterly luscious red!

    Those Sorels are VERY warm. I have Sorels, only for the very coldest weather here in Montréal, but not as high as they are hard to get on and off.
