Favorite Pre-Black Friday Deals

Black Friday Deals feature

Black Friday deals seem to arrive earlier and earlier each year. I’ve been getting specials emails for a week already! Here are a few going on right now from my favorite shops:

Black Friday Deals

Poor & Pretty Apothecary: I’ve got two pretty sweet deals going on in the Etsy shop. The Spa Night Gift Set is 2 4oz scrubs or one scrub and a whipped body butter for $18 — that’s up to $8 off the retail price. If you want to pamper your recipient (or yourself) even more, grab the 8oz duo Spa Month Gift Set for $32, a savings of up to $10. These are the lowest prices of the season, folks!

100 Percent Pure - Sugared & Spiced

100% Pure: I love everything I’ve used from 100% Pure (have you read my review?), so I immediately added their Sugared & Spiced set to my Yule wishlist and told Stan. ;) It’s $116 worth of makeup for $68. They also have a vegan brush set for $95 (reg. $170).

anthropologie- tops under 40

Anthropologie: A little on the pricey side, I pretty much only shop Anthropologie when they’ve got a good sale going. Lucky for us frugalistas, they’ve got one now! Lots of lovely tops under $40. I’m particularly fond of the Cedar Street Tee and the Cassia Scoopneck.

eShakti - 40off

eShakti: One of my favorite new dress shops is offering 40% off site wide until end of day today!

ModCloth - seize the deal

ModCloth: They’re switching it up with Daily Deals — new items listed at 50% off for one day only, every day until Black Friday.

Ruche - Black Friday Deals

Ruche – Oh boy. Ruche has so many great deals happening! There’s the $15 and under sale50-75% off Clearance, Dresses for $9.50+, and over 30% off outerwear. AND You can enter to win your wishlist!

Happy shopping (and saving!), ladies! xo
