The Ultimate Shopper’s Guide to Black Friday & Cyber Monday Sales

I was up bright and early this Monday morning, updating this post with the latest and best Cyber Monday sales and adding a few new ones. Historically, the sales get even a little better today, and this year is no exception! If you’ve been holding out, wanting to get the lowest possible price, you will definitely want to read through all of the sales below.

Also, the Nordstrom gift card giveaway has closed, and the winner’s name is displayed on the Rafflecopter widget at the end of this post. Please email me to claim your prize!

I also give away a $100 gift card every month to a newsletter subscriber, so make sure you’re signed up to get my emails!!! I forgot to announce the November winner on Saturday, so I will announce that in the newsletter this Saturday, Dec 1st.

Okay, guys. This is it! There’s no need to brave the crowds this week with all the amazing deals online. Grab a cup of coffee, put on your coziest slippers, get comfy in front of the computer, and let your fingers do the shopping because I am unashamedly declaring this The Ultimate Shopper’s Guide to the Best Black Friday & Cyber Monday Sales.

Admittedly, this shopping guide is heavy on style and light on toys and electronics, but I’m staying in my lane and rounding up a carefully curated list of the most fashionable sales and deals going on this week along with my top picks from each retailer.

I’m attempting to keep this year’s Guide to Black Friday & Cyber Monday Sales more carefully curated with only the best of the best sales and product picks.

Let’s get this party started!


Best Cyber Monday Sales

T3 MICRO // 25% off with code MONDAY18, including sale items.

I love their hair tools. I have their full size hair dryer, their travel dryer, this curling wand set, and this flat iron. All are already reduced PLUS 25% off. Yes, they’re spendy, but the prices don’t get any better than this, and they’re well worth the investment.

TORY BURCH // 30% off your order with code THANKS (exclusions apply) + Cyber Monday Online Exclusive

Cyber Monday Exclusive: Get this Limited Edition Mini Crossbody for $248. This bag puts the spotlight on the iconic double ‘T’ — this logo mini cross-body is a new take on the popular camera bag style. It has pebbled leather, a chain-accented strap, 3 interior credit card pockets, and it fits all phone sizes up to an iPhone XS and Samsung Galaxy A9.

LOFT // 50% off + FREE SHIPPING on all orders with CYBER

As I predicted, LOFT just added FREE SHIPPING to their 50% off storewide promo. Here are some of my favorites.

BLOOMINGDALES // 25% off items labeled TAKE 25% OFF, for a total savings of up to 60%

I’m a huge fan of Bloomingdale’s in-house brands for cashmere. Their Aqua and C by Bloomingdale’s brands are excellent quality and come in an amazing selection of colors, and right now their prices are lower than I’ve ever seen them.

I also can’t believe all the Stuart Weitzman that is on sale. Plus select Tory Burch handbags are 30% off, and you can take 10% off almost all Beauty purchases. This includes brands like La Mer and others that almost never go on sale. Their premium denim is marked way down as well, and they’re having a great sale on coats and boots.

Also, their home department is fantastic, and today you can save 40-50% on bedding, up to 60% off KitchenAid mixers, up to 60% off All-Clad cookware, and they have great prices on these towels too. We have these in our master bath, and they are SO plush. Also, my Nespresso coffee maker is 60% off.

This shopping widget has been updated today, Monday 11/26.

COLLEEN ROTHSCHILD BEAUTY // 30% off your order with code CM2018.

I’m obsessed with her skincare products, and I use so many of them in my daily routine. Read more in THIS POST.

Also, a Cyber Monday Exclusive — this Limited Edition Premium Collection is a travel-friendly introduction to the Colleen Rothschild core line — a $300 value for $99 today only.

Shop my favorites here:


There are some exclusions, but they’ve added some new styles to the sale today. I wanted to update my shopping widget below to reflect some of my favorites, but these items are so new, they’re not in the ShopStyle catalog yet. I’ve got my eye on this tier-sleeve pullover, this velvet bubble sleeve top, these curvy high rise jeans, and I’m totally crushing on this leather bucket bag! Also, how cute is this dress?

ATHLETA // 20% off your purchase with code BOOST. Ends 11/25.

This is a great time to stock up on cold weather training gear or to buy for the runner/biker in your life. I’ve rounded up the best outdoor running gear below.

They’ve also just added a new brand — Hill City — a performance brand for men! If you have any active men in your life, be sure to check it out. That site is 20% off as well.

NORDSTROM // Save up to 60% off storewide at The Score. PLUS spend $250 and get a $50 gift card to spend later!

For Cyber Monday, spend $250 online and in stores, get a $50 promotional e-certificate to spend online and in stores January 11-February 2! This is a pretty sweet deal.

With the exception of the Anniversary Sale in July, this is Nordstrom’s best sale all year. Not only do they have a ton of great markdowns, they are price matching all the other amazing sales. Also, don’t forget to check out these Beauty Deals.
