Linzi’s Black Friday Game Plan: Fav Brands On Super Sale

6
5864

My Black Friday “game plan” is searching for super-good sales on super-good brands I know and love. It’ll be a combo of personal shopping for a few new things from these fave brands of mine, as well as searching for deals for YOU guys on pieces that I already own and love.

Comfort Shoes, Luxe Beauty, Home & Tech Gifts: Linzi’s Black Friday Shopping Game Plan

For myself, I’m keeping an eye on MOTHER Denim, Dyson, AllSaints and MacBooks. For you guys, I’m keeping an eye on Parachute, Nordstrom Signature, Vince, Fly London, Aquatalia, Dyson Vacuums and more.

The sales can be overwhelming, though, so this year I’m primarily hunting for SUPER-good deals on some of my favorite higher-end brands (where the major sales make a BIG difference in price). I’m also looking for items from some of my most beloved brands that would make great gifts (fun winter hats, head-to-toe sweater outfits, indulgent skincare, and silk face masks). Many of the items below are ALREADY on sale, and I’ll do my best to keep this post, IG and Facebook updated when the others decide to join in the sale fun too!

Women’s Fashion


1. Banana Republic: Head-To-Toe Sweater

I have been so impressed with Banana Republic’s sweater and sweater pant sets. They’ve been selling FAST in all colors, though, so also check out the jogger style and their other sets for additional options. I love the idea of head-to-toe cashmere sets (which will also hopefully go on sale), but I need to be able to easily wash and dry my sweater pants. I’ve washed and dried these Banana pants multiple times, and they still look and feel great. The matching sets at Banana are SO incredibly comfortable, the perfect weight, and the perfect comfy feel for all-day coziness. Would be a great gift, and they’re already included in Banana’s site-wide sale! Woohoo!

2. AllSaints Sweaters & Coats

AllSaints is SUCH a fun brand to find on sale. Their winter coats are VERY special, and I adore their sweaters. This fave is already on sale, but hoping for sales on more of their sweaters at Nordstrom, as well as coats, and this absolutely beautiful sweater on AllSaints’ site. AllSaints is gorgeous, but PRICEY, so great to find on sale!

3. Nordstrom Signature Cashmere

My cashmere hoodie and my super-cozy, navy blue v-neck are both from Nordstrom’s Signature line. The most scrumptious cashmere in my closet…here’s hoping lots of Nordstrom Signature Cashmere goes on sale this month.

4. MOTHER Denim

My fave designer denim. Fits well, looks good and feels great (but pricey), so I’ll be watching for MOTHER Denim on sale at Anthropologie, Nordstrom and MOTHER’s site.

5. Anthro Playfulness

These silly Pick-A-Pom hats give me SO.MUCH.JOY. So much fun to mix and match on a daily basis. Look for them in Anthro’s site-wide sales, but last year they sold out FAST!

6. Everything Everlane

So many good things at Everlane right now, but I’m especially loving this puffer. I love the brown color with blue denim and this teal scarf. Everlane is a bit of a wild card in terms of sales. For Black Friday, they often do a give-back promotion (which is a wonderful time to shop), but I’ll be on the lookout for any surprise sales as well. A lot of Everlane pieces sell out fast, though, so may be worth it to grab things now, if there’s something you truly love.

7. Bearaby Weighted Blanket 

Okay, I don’t actually KNOW this brand personally, but I can’t stop clicking back to their website to see if they are running any sales on this guy. The most gorgeous weighted blanket I have ever seen!

8. Dyson Cordless Stick Vacuum: The BEST!

I wrote a whole post on my obsession with this vacuum. I love it so much. Of course it’s fun to have the newest and fanciest, but I have to say…we still use our old V8, as well as our newer V10, and they both work perfectly. Sales have started on Dyson’s site, but they have been switching up which Dyson models are on sale. If you have any hard flooring, I do recommend the Absolute NOT the Animal (the Absolute comes with the soft roller, which works better on hard flooring).

9. Dyson Heater

My little guy’s school-from-home area is the coldest part of the house. Boo. Watching for sales on Dyson’s heaters as a possibility to use now for him…and later for us.

10. Parachute Linen Bedding: Also The BEST!

If you have been considering joining the Parachute linen bedding train (it’s a GOOD train to be on!), Parachute only goes on sale twice a year (one of them being around Black Friday.) I adore their linen Venice set (fitted sheet, pillowcases and a duvet cover).

11. Vince

I’ve been wearing these Vince Henderson boots a TON (got them during the Anni Sale). Hoping they (and other Vince shoes) are a part of Nordstrom’s Black Friday sales.

12. UGGs  

For being cozy during outdoor hangouts this winter….THESE. Cute, comfy, cozy, warm and waterproof. The black is good, too!

13. Fly Londons 

I am SO in love with Fly London’s styles this season (these are my fav). BUT…if I look in my closet…I see that I am still in love with so many of their older styles too. Fly Londons are definitely Forever-Closet shoes for me. They are as comfortable for my feet as (and sometimes even MORE comfortable than) sneakers. Sometimes they go on sale this time of year, sometimes you have to wait until the very end of the season.

14. Aquatalia

Aquatalia is another brand I watch for during big sales. High-quality, beautiful design, and many classic forever-closet-chic styles. I expect several styles to go on sale and a possible site-wide sale on Aquatalia (with price matching at Nordstrom).

15. The Slip Silk Face Mask

My whole review on this mask is here. I’m hoping it will go on sale SOMEWHERE. Possibly Anthropologie first? During one of their site-wide sales? So far, the masks have been excluded from their Black Friday one-day code they emailed members, but I’m hoping that will change.

16. Dyson Airwrap

I made the TERRIBLE TERRIBLE mistake of borrowing Shana’s Dyson Airwrap last week. Ugh! It’s already on sale at Amazon! It’s so ridiculously expensive (even on sale), but I’m hoping maybe last year’s pink color will go on sale for even less $ at some point other places as well. Amazon’s price may be the lowest we’ll see, but one can hope.

17. T3 Curling Iron Set

This curling iron set is what I was looking at BEFORE I tried Shana’s Air Wrap. I’ve heard really great things about this brand and love that this set comes with 3-sized barrels. I’ve been playing around with curling just a few of my curls here and there to soften them up a bit and give me a bit of a “beachier curl”, but my old $12.00 CVS curling iron stopped working (wonder why!).

18. Oribe Hair Products

All of my favorite hair products right now are from Oribe. They’re pricey, though, so I always look for them on sale.

19. Colleen Rothschild Indulgence

This cleansing balm (a total TME fav) is so lovely! Smells lovely, feels lovely, and makes your skin look lovely. Would be a wonderful gift for yourself or a loved one, and there’s usually a site-wide sale during the holiday shopping season.

20. Puro Kid-Friendly Headphones

Although my kids would love to have AirPods (and they ARE already on sale), I’m not totally convinced they’re safe for little ears. We have and love these Puros, and are looking to upgrade to the newer version that are noise canceling and have a built-in microphone.

21. Nintendo Switch

I wrote a whole post on why the Nintendo Switch is our choice for a video game system. The Switches have been so difficult to come by (and have been marked up $$) during the Pandemic, though, so I doubt they will go on major sale during the holiday season. There may be some special packages or bundles, though, or deals on eBay so I’ll look out for those.

22. Anker Projector

Wow! The kids watched an outdoor movie with this little piece of tech genius, and it was pretty cool. An upgrade is tempting…especially if the Max or the Capsule 2 go on sale.

23. AirPods

I love my AirPods and snagged another pair for the hubs during Amazon Prime Day. AND…they’re already on sale again!!! I actually like the regular version better than the pros—they fit my ears better. The pros are on sale already, though, too.

24. MacBook Air

My kids have always used Chromebooks for school and homework, but with full-time virtual school the Chromebooks have not been as reliable as I would like for them to be. I’m definitely keeping an eye on the MacBook Air, which is already marked down on Amazon.

As I said, I’ll do my best to keep this post, IG and Facebook updated as the sales roll in. Here’s hoping, guys….I think the sales are going to be good, good, good this season!

  1. Hey Ladies! In the spirit of keeping us all as healthy as possible, the CDC guidance today advises against silk masks. Maybe they are a good first layer under a medical or polyester, multilayer mask!

    • Hi Lisa…I’m really glad you brought this up. I agree I definitely want to help keep us all as healthy as possible. Thank you for the comment. Where did you see that on CDC’s website?

      I was basing my personal decision to wear the Slip Silk Mask on the CDC’s recommendations for mutli- layered masks (the Slip silk mask has two layers of 100% silk and one layer of 100% cotton).

      I also was basing my decision on the study that looked at silk masks in two situations… 1. As an effective covering on top of N95’s for medical personnel and 2. As a functional material (on its own) as a face covering. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32946526/ That study states “When used as material in these two situations, silk was more effective at impeding the penetration and absorption of droplets due to its greater hydrophobicity relative to other tested fabrics. We found that silk face coverings repelled droplets in spray tests as well as disposable single-use surgical masks.”

      The most recent article on the CDC regarding masks I could find is this one https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/more/masking-science-sars-cov2.html which is recommending multi-layer cloth masks and states that some “materials..(e.g., silk) may help repel moist droplets and reduce fabric wetting and thus maintain breathability and comfort.”

      I feel like this is an ongoing learning process, though, so please let me know if you found something different specifically about silk on the CDC website…I definitely want to be in line with CDC recommendations. Thanks, Lisa.

  2. Late to this post, but I love the Anthro pick a pom and think it would be a great gift for my sister and cousin — but we are a big-headed family and “one size fits most” hats don’t always work. Linzi, can you tell me about the fit of the hat? Is it stretchy? Thank you!

    • They ARE stretchy! I have the marled beanie with me right here and it’s pretty stretchy in my opinion and not tight at all on my head. The more traditional styled beanies feel and look a bit smaller, but are still pretty stretchy. I think it’s such a fun gift…and they’re part of Anthro’s 30% off sale now!!!
