What To Buy on Cyber Monday
I’m doing something a little different this year. I still updated my Black Friday Sale Guide, as there are LOTS of updates and a few new sales for Cyber Monday.
But for this post, I rounded up the items that I believe are most worth buying on Cyber Monday, organized by topic. I hope it’s helpful!
In general, when retailers are offering their deepest discounts, you want to use the opportunity to purchase those investment pieces and the higher ticket items that rarely go on sale, because your savings will be far more significant it you purchase items at a higher price point.
Of course, it’s also a great time to finish up your holiday shopping because it all adds up, and if you’re getting the best deals, you might as well knock it out all at once!
But if you’re shopping to get the most bang fr your buck, these are the items I would focus on.
If you live in an area with much of a winter, quality boots are a must, and they don’t come cheap, so this is a great time to make that investment.
Sorel has one of the best sales going this weekend, with 40% off throughout the site, and a 50% off special deal each day.
I have several pairs of Sorel boots, and you just can’t find boots that are a better marriage of style and quality. If you’re looking for practical, stylish winter boots, this is a sale you will not want to miss!
Sorel Slimpack II Lace Duck Boots // My most worn pair is definitely these duck boots. I keep them in my mudroom and pull them on to go to my fall/winter workouts (I change into sneakers once I get there) and they also look great with jeans and leggings outfits.
Sporto Minor Waterproof Suede Mid-Calf Boot with Faux Fur Trim // For a lower priced boot that is still on trend and very practical, check out the Sporto Minor from HSN.
I ordered a pair when they were on a special sale last week, and I really like them. They’re super warm and comfortable, and the styling is on point. While the special deal is over, they’re still a great price at $67.40.
For fashion boots, Nordstrom has a great sale going right now on popular styles.
Vince Henderson Chelsea Boots // As you know, I’ve struggled a bit with styling these, but they are gorgeous boots — waterproof, super comfortable, and very high quality. The price right now is amazing for this brand.
Cyber Monday is a great time to snag luxury designer cashmere like Vince, Equipment, and Theory; and the store brands like Halogen, Aqua, and Nordstrom Signature are also on deep discounts. This is pretty much as good as it ever gets!
I took a bunch of pictures yesterday, and I want to write a post to compare the different cashmere brands, but for now, here are my favorites:
Vince Cashmere Weekend V-Neck // This cashmere v-neck is by Vince, and it’s one of my go-to fall/winter wardrobe staples. It has a relaxed fit, generous sleeve length and overall body length, and you can wear it either half-tucked or untucked.
Equipment Turtleneck // Speaking of luxury cashmere, this Equipment turtleneck is another one of those luxury purchases I snagged on an end of season sale, and I’m so glad I did because it’s such a great winter wardrobe staple.
The one I have was the Oscar, and this year’s version is the Delafine, which is currently 30% off at Bloomindale’s and 20% off at Shopbop. I assume they’re the same or very similar. It has a more relaxed fit, and mine is definitely longer than most, so I always give it a front-tuck, as shown above.
Naadam Cashmere Scoop Sweater // I also want to call out Naadam in the luxury cashmere category because their Cyber Monday Sale is seriously insane. Don’t let this one pass you by. They are truly the softest, thickest, most sumptuous cashmere sweaters I’ve tried.
My favorite is no longer available, but the is scoop sweater (above) is a nice one too. It’s just a tad low-cut for my comfort level, so I don’t wear it a lot. I’ve ordered a few more to try, but they aren’t in yet.
It’s thinner and less dense than the higher end luxury brands, but it’s still super soft and comfortable. Plus, they usually have some nice details that make them a little more special than your most basic sweater styles.
Right now, they are all 41% off at Nordstrom!
Aqua Cashmere Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater // The Bloomingdale’s Aqua brand is also really good for a store-brand cashmere. It’s a little more dense than the Halogen, but not quite as soft. I like the details on this turtleneck — the extra long ribbed cuffs and exposed side seams. It also has a seam up the back for added interest.
These do fit a little more snugly than the Halogen brand, and you may want to size up for some extra wiggle room. I’m wearing a small here, but I’ve purchased mediums in the past. I’m wearing the wheat color above.
Everlane The Cashmere V-Neck // Another good under-$100 option for cashmere is Everlane. Their Cashmere Crew is on sale for $75 today. I don’t find their cashmere to be as soft as Halogen, but it’s nice and dense and fairly thick, and it doesn’t pill quickly.
Coats are another item worth buying on Cyber Monday, as they tend to be higher ticket items that don’t go on sale all that often. See my Winter Coat Guide for lots of suggestions. Here are a few of my top picks from this year’s Cyber Monday sales.
The North Face Westborough Insulated Quilted Jacket // I picked up this quilted jacket a few weeks ago, and I’ve been wearing it a lot lately, especially since we’re having such a mild fall. I can’t believe it is still in stock, especially now that it’s 30% off!
It also comes in black and navy, but I’ve been surprised by how much I’m enjoying the white. I especially love the yellow and black accents.
Ralph Lauren Wool Blend Reefer // A classic wool blend coat in grey, camel, or black is another winter wardrobe essential that you can score for a great deal on Cyber Monday sales.
I have this Ralph Lauren Reefer Coat in black, and it’s my go-to for dressy outfits this time of year. It’s also a great way to level up more casual looks. It’s currently 35% off and fully stocked! (I have the 6.)
They have other styles too, but the Dalby is one of their most popular. My oxblood color is almost sold out, but they have sizes from 00 – 10 in the black. (For size reference, I take an 8 in this jacket; and I recommend sizing up if in between.)
Holiday Photo Cards
Minted Holiday Photo Cards // Minted always has their best sale of the year on Cyber Monday, and this is when I order my holiday photo cards. They just went 25% off everything, plus, FREE shipping! (The code is CM2020.)
Okay, admittedly not a big ticket item, but good quality pajamas still aren’t cheap, and they’re popular for gift-giving at Christmastime, so this is a good day to buy them!
Nordstrom also has some good Cyber Monday deals on quality pajamas today, and I’m sure there are others. Chime in if you have a favorite brand!
You can find good prices on denim all year ’round if you pay attention, but this is still a good day to find good deals.
Also, if you go right to the designer websites, you can often find good deals. Like, Rag & Bone has 25% off a lot of their jeans, prices as marked. The Cate is one of my favorite skinny styles, and their Dre is good for a straight boyfriend, but size down at least one in the Dre.
Skincare can be pricey, and the major brands rarely go on sale. I’ve actually bought quite a bit of skincare this weekend!
Elemis has 35% off, which again, is kind of unheard of! I know I keep saying this, but it is Cyber Monday, after all.
Their cleansing balm is amazing, and I’ve been wanting to try some of their skincare, but I have other products I’m enjoying right now so I haven’t invested in those. I hear great things, though!
Colleen Rothschild Beauty is another skincare brand I use a lot, and she has 30% off this weekend.
Timeless Skin Care has 50% off a $75 purchase with code BLACKFRIDAY50, and shipping is always free. I just started using their Coenzyme Q10 Serum and Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum every morning, and I love the results. I also just ordered the Matrixyl Synthe’6 to add to my nighttime regimen.
At 50% off, it pays to get the larger sizes, and that will easily get you to the $75 minimum purchase to enjoy the savings.
Winter Workout Gear
If you exercise outside in cold winter climates, winter workout great can be quite an expense, so I always ask for winter running gear for Christmas.
Sweaty Betty is doing up to 70% off select items, and 30% off everything else. I discovered this brand last spring, when lockdown went into effect, and they make some really nice quality and extremely flattering workout wear. Their leggings are uber flattering, and they have some really cute tops/sweatshirts as well.
I know I usually focus on fashion, but this is also a great time to purchase hot electronic items, so I rounded up a few of those here too.
Apple AirPods are at their lowest price ever at Amazon for $109. (The lowest price elsewhere seems to be $119.) My kids and I all got these last year for Christmas, and we all use them daily. One of the best $120 investments ever!
I’m sure there are so many more I could mention, but these are the ones on my radar at the moment.
What I’m Buying on Cyber Monday
People always want to know what I’m buying! Well, I ordered the Soma Embraceable Long Sleeve Notch Collar Pajama Top and Embraceable Pajama Pants in Soft Snowfall Grand Black. At 40% off, I couldn’t resist!
I also went ahead and got the larger sizes of the Coenzyme Q10 Serum and Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum at Timeless Skincare, since I know I love them. And I ordered the Matrixyl Synthe’6 in the smaller size to try out.
And I will definitely be ordering my holiday photo cards today from Minted!
Oh, and I snagged the Nordstrom Signature v-neck in the olive a few days ago. It’s such a classic and such good quality, and for $97, it seemed wrong not to get another color.
And I almost forgot Sorel!!!
I ordered the Lennox Shearling Booties in Sandy Tan at Bloomies (it won’t link directly to them.) I really wanted the Lennox version (no shearling) at Evereve, but they sold out in my size and they are not included in the sale at Sorel.
I like them, but they’re a tad small so I’m exchanging for the 8.5. I also ordered the Explorer Joan Boots in Ash Brown directly from Sorel for 40% off, but I don’t have them yet. I won’t keep both pairs — I will have to choose one.
That’s enough for me. Now I need to finish up my Christmas shopping!
Let me know what good deals you scored this weekend. I love to hear!
