We’re all familiar with the Black Fridays of years gone by: awakening in the wee hours the day after Thanksgiving to wait, coffee cups in hand, in endless lines of shoppers hoping to snag the best deals on this season’s latest and greatest. But, unlike those of Ebenezer Scrooge, this is one ghost of holidays past that seems to haunt no more. With more and more stores shifting their deepest discounts online to avoid reviving the throes of a pandemic, your deal-hunting days can find themselves not only extended, but more accessible this holiday season.
So fill up your laptop battery instead of coffee mug because I’ve linked a few of my favorite (early) sales and products from each that are sure to stir up that familiar Black Friday rush!
Okay, if you know me, you know that of course I had to kick this off with the greatest shoe designer of all time (in my humble opinion)! I live for Sophia Webster’s seasonal sales and this year was no exception! I finally snagged these Sophia Webster x Patrick Cox rainbow fringe mules that I’d been eyeing since the spring, and with many of her styles up to 30%, it was an amazing deal!! Tap to shop if you’re looking for a style that’ll leave you feeling like the pot of gold at the end of the shoe rainbow!
Next up on the list is one of my favorite handbag designers: Oliveve Handbags! This small female-owned brand is big on style, and their gorgeous bags are all handcrafted in the USA with the most beautiful leathers! Starting on Friday 11/20, Oliveve will be offering 30% off their FW 2020 and 40% off their SS20 collections, and in departure from my usual preferences for teeny bags, my favorite pick has got to be this gorgeous tote! I don’t have a ton of big bags, but always need a good one for traveling, so this is the perfect option for those weekends away!
Anthropologie is one of THE Black Friday sales I always shop every year! It’s the perfect time to gift something unique to everyone on your list, while also securing deals on a few items for yourself (admit it, we’ve all participated in the self-secret-Santa thing once or twice!) This year, sign up for AnthroPerks to be the first to access the deal (hint- it’s 30% off your purchase and you might need to contact Customer Service if you don’t get the email shortly after signing up) and shop this farm-fresh faux fur coat that’s been on my list all season!
Target is usually known for their Black Friday deals on a ton of different items, from home to kids’ stuff, beauty, and tech. I had never really thought to peruse their women’s apparel past the basic t-shirt section until this year when they started upping their style game in a MAJOR way! This year, I’ve bought a ton from Target in the way of fashion; I love a good style-steal that packs just as good of a punch as pricier pieces! This puffer has been popping up on my Insta feed lately and I’ve been dying to get my hands on it, so Target’s early Black Friday sale on puffers for the whole family was the answer to my plush prayers!
With so much more than just sale shopping being moved online in 2020, life is definitely different this holiday season! In the end, though, the early-morning rush of Black Friday is one holiday headache I’m glad to be rid of in favor of more sleep and time with the fam.
So go ahead, shop online and save both your sanity and wallet! More than just your bank account will thank you…
Hoping all your spending is savvy this season, comment below with your favorite deals!!
