Gang, I’ve been really happy with the sales this year. The fact that most Black Friday sales started a full week early gave us enough time to really peruse the online inventory, taking the time to determine the ‘best of’ in a much more thoughtful way.
And the fact that most retailers are offering deep discounts with fewer exclusions doesn’t hurt either.
Frankly, I’m almost done with my holiday shopping. I’m feeling optimistic that the rest of December can now be filled with family time: ice skating, cookie baking, White Christmas watching…WE WILL SEE. (That hasn’t happened in the last three or four years, so fingers crossed.)
So. If you, like me, are using these deep discounts to do a little more spoiling of someone special this year (and let’s be clear I AM SOMEONE SPECIAL TOO #treatyoself)…here are all of my favorites pieces per retailer, to (hopefully) help make the final days of Cyber Week a little easier.

Abercrombie & Fitch – 50% OFF
Abercrombie has reinvented itself in recent years, and we couldn’t be happier. Think: elevated basics, a few spot-on party pieces, and interesting sweaters that stay true to the brand’s heritage vibe.
Amazon – Massive Black Friday Deals
It’s hard to summarize the best deals on Amazon, with their Deals of the Day and Lightning Deals and then the whole Cyber WEEK concept where new sale stuff rolls out each day. After much digging, we’re putting the best (and most time-sensitive) deals on The Mom Edit’s Facebook page. That said, the stuff that will be around for a few days will be here. We’ll keep updating as we find them.
I’m obsessed with Amazon’s in-house brand, The Fix. All shoes below would be SO fun for a party, and all have glowing reviews.
A few pairs perfect for everyday shenanigans.
Out of all of the fashion on Amazon, the deals on workout clothes are the best. Here are my favs, from either Alo (a brand Laura has been raving about) or Core IO, Amazon’s in-house brand that I’ve personally tried and loved.
Anthropologie – 30% OFF EVERYTHING
I’m so glad Anthro has joined the Black Friday party!! This year, Anthro has proven to be my go-to for all the fun, sparkly pieces. Need a top for the holidays? Or a pretty dress? Anthro’s got some really unique pieces.
Dresses, Skirts, and Party Tops
Banana Republic – 50% OFF
The TME team agrees: Banana Republic is on fire this year. They’re masters of subtle-chic, so don’t underestimate any of the below pieces. (If nothing else, get the blazer. It’s stretchy and comfortable and amazing.)
Bloomingdale’s – 25% OFF SELECT ITEMS
I’m totally obsessed with this sale. Not only are all of my favorite things on sale, but Bloomie’s has the best stock (in terms of sizes) right now. Totally worth checking out.
Bonobos – UP TO 30% OFF EVERYTHING
One of our very favorite places to get guy’s clothing. Mike is a huge fan of their suits, most of his ‘party shirts’ have come from Bonobos, and they really have made man-khakis flattering. Take up to 30% off site-wide with code DEALWEEK.
Colleen Rothschild – 30% OFF EVERYTHING
If you’ve been reading this website for a while, you likely have noticed me raving (and raving and raving) about Collen Rothschild’s skincare. I’ve been using it religiously for years as my night-time routine, and whenever I’ve tried other products (just out of boredom), it isn’t long until I switch back. (The one product I’ve NEVER switched up is the facial cleansing oil.) Use code BF2018 for 30% off your entire order.
EXPRESS – 50% OFF
We especially love Express for their affordable, party-ready pieces. (And if you’re considering a sequin showstopper, they have those, too.)
H&M – 30% OFF Plus Free Shipping
I love H&M for those trendy pieces that I’m not totally sure I can pull off, or if I just need something new and fun for the holidays….(use code 3240)
J.Crew – 50% OFF EVERYTHING
J.Crew has managed to put together a collection of happiness for this holiday season. Sweaters that are truly unique and special (whether via details or spot-on colors), a ski-inspired line of sweatshirts and tees, and, per usual, dreamy velvet and quirky, vintagey baubles (like these) to dress everything up.
LOFT – 50% OFF
Our favorites from LOFT are all about texture. We’re talkin’ velvet everything, furry slippers, cozy scarves…and if you come across “flecked” sweaters (or dresses), look closely. LOFT is doing the flecks in multi-colors and they’re SO GOOD.
Lole – 30% OFF Select Items
If you need SERIOUS winter coats for SERIOUS cold….Lole rocks at this game. They manage to make the most lightweight puffers I’ve ever had the pleasure of wearing…without losing an ounce of warmth. Add to this a thoughtful selection of technical clothing disguised as real clothes…these guys are some of my favs.
Nordstrom – Up To 60% OFF Select Items
The best deals right now are on beauty tools, boots, and some seriously cool jackets. (And I’ve also rounded up a few pairs of jeans and sweaters….)
Jackets and Coats
Parachute Home – 20% OFF EVERYTHING
This sale doesn’t actually start until Black Friday, but it’s too good to miss! Parachute Home, if you haven’t yet tried them, makes my all-time favorite bedding. It’s….delicious.
rag & bone – 25% OFF EVERYTHING
Still some of my most-worn denim, Rag and Bone has been a longtime favorite of mine. Their high-rise skinnies are my favs. They manage to stay up with totally squeezing my stomach uncomfortably. But there’s plenty of Dres in this sale (a low-rise, slim boyfriend jean that I can’t quite quit. Like here. Size up if you want that slouchy fit.)
Rebecca Minkoff – 25% OFF (Orders over $100)
There’s plenty of gorgeous backpacks in this sale (including many color choices of our much-beloved Julian), and some really cute clothes. Personally, I’d avoid the shoes. They have pretty bad reviews elsewhere, and the ones I’ve personally tried have been horribly uncomfortable.
Reformation – 30% OFF SITE WIDE
Almost all of my favorite dresses this year have come from sustainable fashion brand Reformation. They’re masters of the subtly sexy, girl-next-door vibe.
shopbop – 35% OFF SALE ITEMS
Shopbop’s epic Black Friday sale has ended, and for Cyber Monday, they’re offering an additonal 30% off all sale items. Per usual, the sale section is pretty picked over, but here are the standouts:
Shop Buru – $50 OFF Every $150
My friend Morgan launched Shop Buru several years ago, specifically to give Moms better shopping options. She’s evolved, over the years, into designing her own line and it’s SO freaking fun. Here are a few of my favs…
Sorel – 25% OFF EVERYTHING
Still my favorites. For the whole fam.
Splendid – 40% OFF EVERYTHING
Every year Splendid comes out with a few pieces that are absolute perfection. They nail the shape, the color palette, and, of course, the softness. This year, I also found a few pieces for the guys.
Sweaty Betty – 30% OFF
Sweaty Betty makes my absolute favorite skiing baselayers and snowpants. You can see last year’s on me, here. I haven’t yet tried their jackets, but I have high hopes. (They also have this seriously glamorous all-in-one ski suit – I mean WOW.)
The North Face – Up To 25% Off Select Items
A few of the pieces from our North Face try-on video are on sale, as well as plenty of stuff for kids and guys. Here are my favs from the women’s section…
Urban Outfitters – 50% OFF
west elm – Up To 40% OFF
Williams Sonoma – Up To 50% OFF
