Happy Holidays, officially!! Now that the stuffing has been stuffed, the football has been watched, and the pumpkin has been pied (ok, not great but we’re going with it), it’s full on Holiday season! Yay!
Once again, we’ve pulled together our annual Black Friday Cheat Sheet. We like to keep our edit tight, highlighting only our truest top picks. So whether you’re looking to upgrade your winter look (boots, coats, sweaters, jeans, etc), do a home edit refresh, or to stock up on tried-and-true beauty products, we’re constantly scouring the internet for the best possible Black Friday deals.
Start Here: Top 11 Best Black Friday Deals Of 2023
Here’s a quick list of my top 10 Black Friday sales for 2023. There’s no particular rhyme or reason to these, just my usual, strong opinions.
- Nordstrom’s Black Friday Sale has Dyson’s Air Wrap for $100 off! I LOVE mine. I also picked up these heeled Sorels – waterproof, warm, good traction – to wear on winter date nights (and to replace my tired Sorel wedges). Our complete Nordstrom’s BF Sale edit is here, if interested.
- Clare V – 20% off everything. I’m going to replace my Pot de Miel. After 7-ish years of hard use, it’s a little misshapen.
- Frank & Eileen are having a warehouse sale, up to 70% off select items! Top picks are my triple fleece skirt (size up, full review here), my fav shirtdress in a punchy color, and this oversized flannel.
- Athleta – Take 30% off everything, and I went directly for this bag.
- Saks’ Black Friday Sale Event has the most beautiful pieces and some seriously good gifts – I especially love Assouline coffee table books (somebody get me ‘Aspen’). If interested, I threw all of my favorites here.
- Naked Cashmere – 30% off everything! My two favorites are the Noelle (a perfectly, swingy turtleneck) and the Kaia (gorgeous color, easy boyfriend vibe).
- Small, local, Sh*tThatIKnit is doing a rare, sitewide sale of 30% off everything. Their Apres Ski beanie is literally the most well-made, warmest beanie I’ve EVER worn.
- J.Crew – 50% off almost everything, including their cashmere (which never happens). My favs are this backless sweater and/or the shrunken crew (also in cable knit).
- Briogeo – Black owned business Briogeo kicked off a major BF sale! Which means that the best dandruff shampoo on the planet is 30% off.
- Parachute – Their BF sale, 20% off everything, just went live. They only do sales twice a year, and this is one of them. We’re HUGE fans of their linen sheets (and I love their classic towels, too).
- Social Threads – Another very exciting sale: 30% off everything! Run, run, run to the Risen Jeans before they sell out. The full-length flares are my favorites (these or these) as well as the boyfriend jeans. (And then maybe have a little look around – there’s plenty of fun stuff.)
