What I'm Shopping in the 2019 Thanksgiving and Black Friday promos :: Effortlessly with Roxy

Firstly, Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because there are no religious obligations, and each year America gains new people to share this wonderful gathering and feasting tradition with!! This year Alex and I are staying in Brooklyn for Friendsgiving and I cannot wait to serve out my famous Apple Pie!

November is the busiest month at my job and despite my best intentions I wasn’t able to post nearly as much as I’d hoped this month. Things slow down considerably in December so posts will be back soon. But of course I couldn’t possibly miss posting about two of my favorite shopping days of the year! Thanksgiving has become a huge shopping day thanks to ecommerce and now rivals Black Friday in terms of revenue for retailers. I’m totally taking advantage of many of the sales today to continue my Christmas and Hanukkah shopping.

So here’s what I’m Shopping in the 2019 Thanksgiving and Black Friday promos and I’d love to hear what you plan to get too! I will update this post as I can, however if any of the short-term promos have expired when you read this post I do apologize. It’s hard to keep up with the mania amidst all the celebrating!!

ANTHROPOLOGIE | The promo has not yet appeared; it should appear around 6 PM ET on Thanksgiving. | What I’m getting & gifting: For my Capri Blue-obsessed friend this Advent calendar will make a great hostess gift; for my friend who loves all rose-scented beauty items there is this kit; and for me, these soaks will make me forget that our bathtub is too small to really enjoy a bath. We’ll talk much more about Anthro gift ideas in a post soon!


FREE PEOPLE | Thanksgiving Day only, take 20% off all FP Movement for a good cause. | What I’m getting & gifting: I’m saving my Free People budget for their sitewide promo, but I can recommend some items I’ve previously purchased. I love the Ecology Leggings and the matching bra for low-impact workouts; the Under it All Leggings are my favorite après ski pants; the BFF Fleece Pullover is ugly as sin and ever so comfy on. (How great does it look under this jacket??)

HUNTER BOOTS | Take 30% off hundreds of women’s styles and Thanksgiving Day only, take 30% off kids’ boots! | What I’m getting & gifting: I replenished my Hunter rain boots collection last year and one of my close friends has been admiring this pair, so I’m getting them for her for Hanukkah!! During this sale I highly recommend the wide leg tall boots or the boot socks!! I also own and love the oversized rain smock although I always get teased by my girlfriends when I wear it. Until I show up dry while their clothes are soaked that is. I also own and love the short adjustable-back rain boots.


J.CREW | Take 50% off your purchases and an extra 60% off sale styles. | What I’m getting & gifting: I’ve loved a lot at J.Crew lately! Chris Benz is doing a great job of bringing back the classic shapes and styles we used to love at the Crew. And the last pieces from Johanna Uurasjarvi are beautiful. I absolutely love my glitter slides and could not resist the Gwen Slingbacks with bow in glitter (they don’t seem to be online though?!?). J.Crew has the most amazing shoes. These cargo pants have served me well all Fall and this sweater is my newest love — I’m gifting it to three people. These earrings can dress up a casual outfit beautifully!





Shop: A fun sweater that makes a great gift.

LOFT | Take 50% off your purchase! Use code INDULGE. | What I’m getting & gifting: I’m in love with LOFT’s sweaters! So happy to see that the Cowl Neck Tunic Sweater is back this year — I bought mine last year and it’s still going strong. This year I’m gifting the Bobble Shirt Tail Sweater, and I know it’s good because I already bought it for myself! I also love gifting and getting LOFT’s jewelry, like these pretty earrings or this lovely necklace.


MADEWELL | Take 30% off your purchase! | What I’m getting & gifting: As you know, Madewell has become my favorite store!! You can see so much recent Madewell on me on my Instagram and liketoknow.it pages. In this promo I’m ordering the Colorblock Midi Sweaterdress for myself and the Transport Camera Bag as a Christmas present. Madewell’s scarves also make great, inexpensive gifts — they look amazing twisted around bag handles!!





SOREL | It’s time to invest in Winter boots and booties if you haven’t already — take 25% off and get Free Shipping too. | What I’m getting & gifting: Don’t mind if I do Sorel; I’ve been waiting for this sale. Picking up two pairs for myself, these rain and snow-ready wedge booties in ‘dark slate’ (perfect for the ugliest city days weather-wise) and these stylish booties too in ‘carnelian red’. I’ve owned and loved this boot in ‘shale’ for many years now and it’s great for heavier snowstorms. I just saw an ad for these boots and I have to admit they are tempting for messy late-Fall days!!

    Happy Thanksgiving!!

    Really surprised Free People hasn't done their sitewide promo yet – they usually do it the week before thanksgiving.

      If we are talking about the 25% off site wide it was Nov. 15. I purchased a bunch of gifts then (so my daughter and I fortunately skipped free people at the mall yesterday). Most of our damage also was done at madewell. Purchased a number of gifts and candles and cute jewelry at anthro (no clothes there).

        Oh that stinks – I totally missed it!!! 🙁 That was way earlier than I was expecting too. Guess I won't be shopping FP this season.

          I missed it too. I'm over Free People. There's zero customer appreciation.

    Hope everyone had a lovely thanksgiving and thanks a bunch for this post Roxy! Black Friday doesn't feel right without your promo updates *hugs*

    Personally, Im all shopped out even though I've only made a small dent in my gifting list. This new trend of 30% off sitewide is great and thus far Target and Anthropologie has received the majority of my spending money. I was disappointed in Zara's promo because it was limited and I finished the day at Madewell where I bought a few gorgeous accessories. Would be super interested to see where everyone else landed in their shopping!
