Sifting Through The Black Friday Sales

Tis the season. I dont know about you, but I feel like the Black Friday sale emails start coming earlier every year. Seriously though, its easy to get overwhelmed. So to help you cut through the clutter, Ive been browsing and bookmarking some favorites.

Best Of 2019 Black Friday Sales (A Highly Subjective Edit)

Id like to start with some of my favorite smaller brands, because they often get lost in all of the hoopla.

French Kande Pineau medallion Black Friday special. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

French Kande is offering this beautiful medallion on a 28 chain for just $30 with any purchase of $250 or more (also available in Brass). Just enter CYBER19 at checkout, and specify in comments whether youd prefer silver or brass. This Cyber Monday promotion is only available for a limited time, and these often sell out quickly, so dont miss it.

And theres still time to enter to win a $300 French Kande gift card to use toward anything on the website. Winner will be drawn and announced next week.

Cashmere-silk leopard scarf from Black Co. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

From today through Monday December 2, Black Co. is offering 20% off all collections! (Including my favorite leopard silk-cashmere scarf.) Shop scarves, accessories, gifts, even mens items. The 20% discount will be applied automatically, but theyve kindly offered my readers an additional 10% discount with code FEMME10 ! International shipping is free on all orders over 125. Offer expires December 2.

Brian + MW Black Friday Beauty Box specials. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

Brian at Makeover Workshop has put together some Beauty Box promotions as well. These are some of my favorite products from Brian + MW, specially priced from Black Friday through Cyber Monday.

Shipping is free on all orders over $30 with code FREESHIP.

While its easy to find One Hit Wonders on sale, Im always on the lookout for good quality basics. Not as thrilling perhaps, but far less likely to end up in a giveaway pile.

Best of Black Friday sales: Eileen Fisher ribbed merino sweater, 50% off. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

Nordstrom is having a heckuva Cyber sale. Lots of Eileen Fisher in the mix, including shoes and accessories. I like this ribbed merino wool sweater (not too boxy, not too snug) which is 50% off and also available in Black and Cashew (light beige). Plus here.

Eileen Fisher ribbed wool sweater in Plus on sale. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

There are a lot of good Plus selections too, including this ribbed wool cardigan, which is much better in person than it looks here.

Fleurette stand collar wool coat in vicuna. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

A good quality wool coat an investment piece for sure, but 33% off helps you hit your Cost Per Wear target a little sooner. Also available in Black and Camel.

On sale: AG Caden trousers in crimson. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

I have these trousers in a couple of colors. This Crimson color is 40% off. If you prefer a cooler red, theres also a color called Gooseberry at 40% off.

Naturalizer daelynn tall boots on sale. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

There are a LOT of shoes and boots included in the sale, including these good-looking classic knee boots. Theyre also available in Black and Maple (a lighter brown) and in Wide widths too.

Best of Black Friday sales: J.Jill merino crew neck sweater, details at une femme d'un certain age.

J.Jill has 40% off your entire purchase with code JOY40. I like this simple merino wool sweater with an interesting sleeve detail. Its offered in several colors in Misses, Petites, Plus and Tall sizes. This would be a great addition to a cool season travel wardrobe! Merino wool is breathable, adjusts to a range of temperatures, and doesnt pick up odors.

J.Crew Sophie sweater blazer in Black Watch plaid. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

Over at J.Crew, this sweater blazer is just SO good in Black Watch Plaid
