Black Friday, a national holiday for bargain shoppers that technically happens the day after Thanksgiving but really extends far before and even after that day, offers some highly advertised deals like HDTVs and kitchen appliances — but with high-end labels and department stores offering less-advertised deals on couture, fashion enthusiasts can take advantage of the glorious holiday as well.
Madewell, Shopbop and Kate Spade are among the sites offering noteworthy deals starting on Thanksgiving and extending through Cyber Monday. Here are some Black Friday deals the fashion conscious should be aware of.
J.Crew: 30% off entire purchase, "including stuff that's never on sale," according to the site, and an extra 40% off sale items.
Madewell: The overlord of denim and J.Crew's sister brand is offering 25% off entire purchases using the promo code "CALMDOWN."
Cole Haan: The shoe and clothing designer is offering 50% off select footwear and 30% off everything else through Sunday.
Bloomingdale's: Advertised as the "Big Brown Sale," Bloomie's is discounting online and in-store select items up to 50%, $15 for every $100 spent in store and $25 off every $200 spent online.
Nordstrom: The high-end department store is offering up to 40% off clearance items on its site in effect now.
