Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and aside from spending quality time with family, gorging on huge amounts of comfort food, and falling into an inevitable food coma, one thing remains on die-hard shoppers’ minds: Black Friday sales. We thought we’d help out all of our fellow shopaholics by handling the grunge work of researching the best deals at some of Chictopians’ favorite brands. We’ve come up with a 2-part write up on some top Black Friday deals – this first one will tell you about the online sales (you don’t have to wait till Cyber Monday for all of ‘em!) and Wednesday we’ll post one about in-store Black Friday deals for our fellow San Franciscans.
First things first – online sales – here are some of our favorite Black Friday online options, since we know many of you would rather shop from the comfort of your own cozy couch rather than in the crazed brick and mortar stores this weekend. So go ahead – sit back with your laptop this Thursday, have some more turkey and another slice of pumpkin pie, and shop away!
Add some luxury to your basics. We love James Perse for those must-have investment pieces, so we’re excited that Chictopia subscribers are opted into their VIP “Early Access Days” sale and will get first dibs on their awesome inventory. Sale items will be priced at up to 40% off, offering both men’s and women’s styles (you know how great your boyfriend will look in this cashmere sweater!). The VIP “Early Access Days” will go from Wednesday (11/21) to Thursday (11/22), and during this time the sale will be secret before it goes public on Black Friday. We recommend getting there early! ;)
We’re overjoyed that this British brand is playing into the United States’ tradition of Thanksgiving sales. Their Black Friday online sale goes live on Friday (11/23) and lasts through Sunday (11/25), and with the code “BLACKFRIDAYBONUS” you’ll get an extra 20% off everything! This means full price items, sale items – you name it. ASOS is already running an up to 30% off footwear/accessories globally this week, so with the code you get an even further 20% off. Each person can only use the code once though, so choose wisely! As for Cyber Monday, it’s the same sort of deal: with promo code CYBERMONDAYSPECIAL you’ll get 30% off everything on the site from Monday (11/26) through Friday (11/30). That week will have 20% off ASOS own brand marked down on the site so, again, we’ll get a further 30% off with this code.
If you’re serious about shopping these sales online, ModCloth is letting you get started on Thursday. Their “Tis the Season” sale lasts from Thanksgiving (11/22) through Sunday (11/15), and features brand new styles for 50% off. Their Cyber Monday, “As You Wish” sale will feature hundreds of fan-selected styles at 25% off. Don’t worry about surfing the “Tis the Season” sale between courses at Thanksgiving dinner – we won’t tell! :)
True to Loehmann’s style, their online Black Friday program goes above and beyond. Loehmann’s never fails to give us brand name items at crazy discounts, and it looks like this sale won’t fail either. Here’s a timeline of the deals you can’t miss:
Wednesday, 11/21 at 3 am ET thru Thursday, 11/22 6 pm ET – 25% off entire site
Thursday, 11/22 at 6 pm ET thru Friday, 11/23 at 1 pm ET – 40% off entire site
Friday, 11/23 at 1 pm ET thru Sunday, 11/25 at 6 pm ET – 30% off entire site
Sunday, 11/25 at 6 pm ET thru Wednesday at 3 am ET – 40% off entire site (extended Cyber Monday deal!)
Shipping is always free on orders over $100, and the promo codes are available directly on the website.
Macy’s may rival Target in the scope of sale items over the holiday season. Online sales start Thursday (11/22) and last through Saturday (11/24), and this sale preview has definitely caught our eye.
Target is always one of our favorite Black Friday hotspots, and we’re so thankful that they’ve provided a preview of Black Friday sale items in your area on their site, so we can attempt to gather our thoughts – and make a quicklist – before the sale starts. You can shop online exclusives starting 11/22 if you want to get warmed up before Cyber Monday.
No need to wait for Cyber Monday – Forever 21’s “pre-Black Friday Sale” is live and can be accessed here! They have tons of cozy pieces (think puffy vests, versatile tank tops, fleece jackets and leggings) all under $15. Count us in!
From this Wednesday (11/21) through next Friday (11/30), we will have a special Black Friday Shop Campaign on our marketplace. Our favorite shop sellers will be slashing prices by up to 60%, allowing you to shop the latest trends without breaking the bank. So whether you’re treating yourself or stocking up on presents for others this holiday season, we’ve got you covered!
