Here's What to Buy From the Best Pre-Black Friday Sales

The week, some of the best shopping of the year began. With Black Friday and Cyber Monday on the rise year after year, many sales are starting even earlier. I wanted to put together a post with my favorite sales, along with the best products from each one. One thing I love to do is start with a small list of what I’m looking for. Keep reading to find out what to get from the best pre-black Friday sales…

I’ll continue to update this list and my picks through Thanksgiving morning, so please check back for more of my favorite deals and sale finds.


This favorite web shopping destination of mine just launched its ‘buy more, save more’ sale with up to 25% off your order. A few things I’ve worn are now on sale, like my Frame corduroys and this holiday-ready sweater. See more of my picks from the sale in the widget below, and keep in mind that the tiered discount is applied in shopping cart.

J. Crew

While my style isn’t preppy, I can always depend on J. Crew for a few special finds this time of year – now at 40% off (select styles). This mockneck sweater dress is perfect for mild winters, and this timeless topcoat comes in many colors. I couldn’t resist sharing this velvet bag in one of my favorite colors (amber) – perfect for holiday parties.

Lord & Taylor

Outerwear and shoes are what I’m eyeing at Lord & Taylor, with a extra 40% off sale items and $25 off $200+. A favorite AG skinny jean of mine is included (originally 225, now 81!). I’m loving this Sam Edelman faux fur coat (originally 220, now 88!), which comes in two colors. Check the widget below for shoes, coats, sweaters, and more.


Net-a-porter is one of my favorite retailers for inspiration, but their designer items are often outside of my budget. When they launch a sale, you know it’s going to be a good one. It’s a great time to grab my favorite designer summer sandal for 30% off. I love this emerald green, silky Vince midi skirt for holiday parties, and this feminine blouse might be my favorite sale find in this entire post.


Nordstrom is offering 60% off in advance of their Black Friday sale. I’m in love with this romantic dress at 50% off. This quilted hooded coat is ideal for cold weather, and the Nili Lotan sweater I’ve been eyeing all season is now 40% off. The loved BLANKNYC suede moto jacket is 33% off in all colors, and there are some incredible deals on denim and shoes.


I can count on Madewell to deliver when it comes to basics, like soft sweaters and movie night-ready socks. Everything is 25% off through Sunday, 11/25. Be sure to check out the outerwear, and don’t miss the boots and booties.
