Black Friday weekend promos around the webby world

Note: Updated for Black Friday and weekend sales.


Happy Thanksgiving, Community! I’m so thankful for all of you, especially as I’ve gone back to work full-time and don’t have quite as much time to devote the blog anymore. I love you, I appreciate you! Thank you for sticking with me through my highs and lows, for forgiving me when my attempts to build engagement go awry and when I try out things that just don’t work.

Your comments and clicks have helped me more than I can truly say — right now, we are preparing to help my Mom shop for a new home that will be perfect for her senior years. The funds for that home are coming directly from your clicks and buys from my affiliate links, and from the sponsorship income your engagement has allowed me to earn. My boyfriend and I have put aside our house dreams for the moment so I can buy Mom a home, and I really can’t thank you enough for supporting this blog and allowing me to do this for my family.

Some of our favorite retailers would also like to give thanks to you today, in the form of sweet discounts. I’ll have a more thorough Black Friday post up tomorrow but for now here are some of my favorite promos happening today. (Feel free to add yours in the comments!)

I’d love to know what you’re getting today, what you’re getting to gift, and how you’ll celebrate Thanksgiving. Alex, Cinnamon and I are in Sag Harbor with his family this weekend celebrating America’s holiday with both friends and family.

Anthropologie | Take 30% off everything — this promo even seems to include furniture, though it says exclusions apply (I’m not sure what those exclusions are) which is a true rarity! This is as good as the promos for full-price items will get this year — so if you’re waiting for the best deal, this is it! | Picks: You can see all my new clothing picks, and my new accessory picks here. My jaw is on the floor that furniture is included! Right now this chair, this buffet and this dresser are tops on my wishlist. Below, furniture picks in the top row; home decor in the second row, and sale picks in the third row.




Boden | Take 30% off your purchase with code CY8H. | Picks: This velvet pencil skirt is what dreams are made of (and it fits like one too!), this sweater is my absolute fave and 25 more ideas below.


Club Monaco | Take 25% off $150+ purchases; 30% off $250+ and 35% off $400+ during the Black Friday event. Valid all weekend, online and in-store. Use code SHOPFRIDAY. | Picks: I haven’t been interested in too much of their fall clothing, but Club Monaco always delivers beautiful sweaters and coats. I’ve got my eye on the Perrinney Cashmere Sweater ($289), the Sidone Bow Cashmere Sweater ($329) and the Keila Cashmere Sweater ($695), all included in the promo. More picks below.


J. Crew | Take 40% off your full price purchase on eligible items with the code GETGIFTING. Items included in the promo will say so on their product pages. Good news? Many Thomas Mason items are included this time around!  | Picks: My favorite pajamas are back and I highly encourage you to get the full set that I adore: the cami, the shorts, and the fantastic robe. In fact, I may be wearing them right now as I type this post! More picks below, most in the promo but a couple that are too good to pass up mentioning even at full price.


LOFT | Take 50% off everything with the code FRIYAY. | Picks: This floral velvet shell is beautiful in black and gold; I love this simple yet pretty sweater that comes in several colors; this long moto coat is surprisingly awesome in real life! More LOFT picks just below.


Madewell | Take 25% off your purchase with the code DONTSTRESS. All eligible items have red promo lettering on the product pages. There are lots of exclusions. | Picks: Unfortunately, my absolute favorite Madewell items like the Washed Leather Motorcycle Jacket ($498), the Transport Tote and series (love this new violet color of the medium size!) and the Ulla Johnson Silk Odette Smocked Mini Dress ($575, above) are all excluded, but below are my picks for items that made it into this amazing special offer. If you feel like splurging on an excluded item, I certainly don’t blame you!


Sundance | Take 20% off your order and get free shipping on $150+. | Picks: I adore so much at this store! Among the items in my cart right now are the Scarlett Top ($148), the Lace Traditions Top ($98) and the Victorian Romance Dress ($168). Below, picks from their clothing and shoes.

    My Anthro order for the faux leather pants that I placed yesterday just shipped today. Woot! I always get nervous shopping Anthro online around now bc of the Black Friday cancellations blunder they went through a few years ago.
    I’m planning on going to a few stores tomorrow.
    Happy thanksgiving!

      They are apparently working today (Thanksgiving Day). I also got a "shipped" notice today. I emailed CS this morning to request a PA for the 30% promo and have already received a response. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

    • November 24, 2017 / 10:40 am

      Excellent! That's impressive, though I personally am in favor of giving people Thanksgiving off whenever possible. Still, if Anthro chooses to be open I hope the staff was paid well and yay them for moving fast!!

    I wasn’t following Anthropologie lately, I was just browsing the website as part of my lazy low key Thanksgiving, I placed a few items in my cart when the 30% off promo unexpectedly popped up. Perfect! I ordered Mixed Stich Cardigan (Sleeping on Snow sweaters are great), Maeve’s Layered Arabesque Dress (love the tulle and cozy sweater combo) and the Oda Sweater Dress in red. I haven’t tried any of them before, hope they fit. I’m wearing last year’s Embroidered Petals Swing Dress which I bought on an impulse around the same time last year, so I have a good feeling about this splurge. Happy Thanksgiving!

    • November 24, 2017 / 10:40 am

      Nice Anna! Hope you like everything when it arrives.

    Well I ordered way more than I normally would have for myself. Got three dresses I was eyeing (Mira textured dress, patterned sweater dress and structured knot work dress in green) a pair of floral booties, a few candles and an apron that my daughter wanted. Can't wait for it to all come in!!

    • November 24, 2017 / 10:41 am

      I tend to go that way too, you can always return what doesn't work out.

    Dear Roxy,
    I am sorry to hear your mother is homeless. Do you have a link to a kickstarter? I am sure people would want to help, especially as this is the holiday season. Best wishes

    • November 24, 2017 / 10:42 am

      Oh no, she's not homeless! I'm sorry if the opening was misleading. She's in the house I grew up in and it's too much for one person to manage, especially someone who cannot see (she's lost her vision recently). So we are looking to buy her a new, more appropriate home. Right now she lives far out in the woods away from town and it's hard to get to in the winter. We're looking for somewhere in a community and near medical facilities, where she can be independent yet also close to the treatments she needs.

      I'm so sorry if I was unclear.

        Sending good thoughts your way that something great opens up and hopefully selling the current one will help too. You’re an awesome daughter.

    I highly recommend the Goldengrove Cardigan by Field Flower. Much more beautiful than the photos which inexplicably obscure the stunning embroidery, French knots, and beading with crossed arms and other distracting poses. If I had not first seen it in the store, I might have passed it by. The color is more subdued, less gold than the pics. It is very, very soft and runs a little large. Read the reviews – lots of "Old Anthro" comments.

    • November 24, 2017 / 10:44 am

      I'm so in love with that cardi myself Denise. Thanks for highlighting it!

      An email I received this am says "a very special event is happening today at your local store."

      It's tucked into a jingle bell this year. My mom and I both for $25 off $150. You can only use it through December 8th….so not that fabulous!

    • Stefanie
      November 26, 2017 / 9:52 am

      Like mentioned below everyone in line at cadhvwrap gets a jungle bell with a small note tucked inside- each note had a saying and each saying correlated to a specific “ gift”. Mine was a postcard to download their Anthro wallpaper ?. I guess others were $ off, etc. I’m not complaining because I’ve got measuring spoons and letter openers in years past! Congrats to those who got something decent!

    I am totally planning on buying some furniture! Does anyone know if Anthropologie has fabric samples in stores?

    • November 25, 2017 / 8:56 am

      They do in their larger format Anthro & Co stores!

    So happy to read about you being able to help out your mom! I'm sure it's a wonderful feeling to be able to get her comfortably situated. As I've said before, I'm a strong believer that when people create high quality content–as you do–they deserve any financial gains it brings. And how wonderful that you can do something so kind for a family member with yours! Have a wonderful weekend!

    • November 25, 2017 / 11:41 am

      Thank you Lauren for your sweet words! Wishing you a wonderful weekend too.

    Thinking of you and your mom. You are a wonderful daughter and I know she is so proud of you!!!

      Aww thanks Carol!

    This was the first year in a while that I did not visit Anthropologie on black Friday. I did stop by today, but not much worth purchasing so I left with a $7 tee and that is all. There was one sweater I wanted online, but it was sold out in my size before the promo. (Fitted, reasonably priced, online only, sweaters seem to sell out fast)
    I did visit Madewell right before Thanksgiving and I had much better luck with some cozy sweaters. Nothing at J Crew either. This is great for my wallet, but it seems so strange that the stores have nothing flattering this season.

    • November 26, 2017 / 9:53 am

      I did end up doing some shopping at Anthro for this promotion, but far far less than in past years. My spend with Anthro this year is much lower than last year which was much much lower than in previous years.
