Sale Roundup

Keep Calm

Well, it’s almost Thanksgiving and the deals are already everywhere. This is the perfect time of year to really focus on what you are thankful for…family, friends, amazing sales. Although The JCR Girls would never be caught dead in a Black Friday mob situation, we can’t lie – we love the sales.

I’m sure you all saw the email this morning, J. Crew Factory has already started their 50% off of everything promotion. Yes, everything. Marty has the best tips for Black Friday shopping at Crew. Check them out before embarking on your adventure.

Bloomingdale’s is having its Big Brown Bag sale (aka up to 50% off select items). So fill your bag up with gifts for everyone and maybe this quilted jacket too, because…elbow patches.

C. Wonder will give you 30% off (use code GIFTS30) when you buy three items or more (regular price or sale, because they like the giving part of Thanksgiving). I’ve already got a few items for my mom and sister in the good ol’ shopping cart.

Shopbop is having one of my favorite kinds of sales…buy more save more (use code BIGEVENT13). It doesn’t get better than that. Check out their glam gift guides for the most stylish people in your life.

Save 30% on your entire order from Lands’ End. Pick up some monogrammed wellies…oh, and a nice pair of socks and gloves for your dad for when he has to shovel this winter.

Sole Society is giving you 8 Days of Deals. Fingers crossed for a deal on boots because…you cannot pass up these babies (um, separated at birth situation here…twins much?).

As always, Target has an offer that will send you to the checkout with nothing that you need….but everything that you want. 40% of dresses and sweaters, and buy one get one 50% off boots.

Save 25% or more on select brands at Nordstrom. You’re sure to find something for everyone on your list. If you’re not sure where to start take a look at the expertly curated lists of the most giftable items.

Enjoy 30% off already reduced items from Club Monaco. I might need this coat to keep me warm on my walk from the subway to work and I can think of a few people who would love finding these stacking rings in their stockings.

Phew, well all that sale stalking was my cardio for today. Time for a cup of coffee and a Pinterest session.

Happy Shopping!

I’m currently lusting after this amazing dress to wear to a holiday party or two. I think it’s classy with a fun edge and I’m totally loving lace right now.

Holiday Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers

Quick survey (let us know in the comments!) is St. Nicholas Day a widespread practice? It has just been brought to my attention that this may be a Milwaukee only thing. So now I’m very curious and would like to know who else out there celebrates and where you are from!

I always LOVED St. Nick’s growing up. My sister and I would get smaller gifts in our stockings like bracelets, an American Girl outfit (we were obsessed), a book, and of course candy! You get the idea. Here are some ideas for grown up stocking stuffers that would be perfect to hold the kid in all of us over until Christmas!
