As a shopping writer, finding the best sales and deals on Black Friday is basically my Olympics. After all, it’s the one time of the year I can shop as much as I want from all of my favorite brands and retailers without breaking the bank. And while I love shopping for and testing out new beauty products as much as the next person, I have some serious holes in my wardrobe to fill this season. With that in mind, I headed to Nordstrom’s site for some pre-Black Friday browsing—and discovered that the retailer is actually running a massive sale right now, ahead of Black Friday. Meet Nordstrom’s Holiday Deals sale.
Right now, Nordstrom is offering up to 60 percent off across nearly all of their categories (I’m talking about hundreds of deals) including trendy winter footwear from brands like Vince Camuto and Dr. Martens, intimates from True & Co and Hanky Panky, and other cold-weather wardrobe essentials like Levi’s denim, coats from Topshop, and more.
Nordstrom's Black Friday Sale
But if you’re not here to shop the early deals and only care about Nordstrom’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, here’s what you need to know. Nordstrom's Black Friday sale begins on November 18; the Cyber Monday sale begins on November 28; both sales will end on November 29. While the sales are generally massive, there are several brands that will be offering discounts for you to shop: Augustinus Bader, for instance, will be offering 25 percent all of their face creams—including the Marie Claire-approved The Cream. Kiehl’s will also be offering 50 percent off select items, and Malin + Goetz will be offering 25 percent off select items from their range of fragrances and luxury candles. And for my eyebrow fanatics, Anastasia Beverly Hills will be offering 30 percent off eyebrow products and tools.
If, like me, you’re into shopping all of your favorite brands at a discount, I highly recommend checking back as we inch closer to Black Friday. I’ll be updating this page as new sales and discounts drop, so consider this your go-to place for all things Nordstrom Black Friday 2022. (For even more Black Friday goodness, check out Marie Claire’s stories on the best Sephora Black Friday deals, the best Le Creuset Black Friday deals, and the best hair dryers on sale for Black Friday 2022.)
In the meantime, shop some of our favorites from Nordstrom's (massive) sale section in the lead-up to Black Friday from brands like True & Co, UGG, and more.
Paddywax Yin & Yang Candle
$38 $19 at Nordstrom
Winter is the perfect time to pick up a new candle, especially when that candle costs less than $20 on sale and looks as cute as this one from Paddywax does. It includes two different scents, so you can pick which fragrance you're in the mood for every single time you go to burn it. The black wick is scented with notes of pink peppercorn, bergamot, and clove, while the white-wicked candle includes notes of jasmine, mint, and lemon. View Deal
True & Co True Body Lift Wireless Bra
$58 $26 at Nordstrom
I'm not someone who raves about bras, but I really, really love this bra from True & Co. It's so comfortable that I often forget that I'm wearing it, which is a feat. It provides lift, support, and shape without the use of wires, and smoothes everything out underneath a tee. It comes in a bunch of neutral colors (including this deep brown color), and has a seamless design. View Deal
UGG Fluff Yeah Faux Fur Slingback Sandal
$100 $50 at Nordstrom
Celebrities like Gigi Hadid love UGG's Fluff Yeah Slippers because they're so comfortable. I personally own a pair in black and love to wear them around the house and to run errands because they're so, so comfortable. Right now, they're available in for just $50 rather than $100, which means that you might as well buy two pairs—one for you and one for someone on your holiday shopping list.View Deal
Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask Set $60 Value
$40 $28 at Nordstrom
For a pore cleanout this winter, pick up this set from Kiehl's. It includes a full-size and a travel-size version of the brand's best-selling Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Face Mask, which uses ingredients like Amazonian white clay to dig deep into your clogged pores for a refreshed look. Formulated for normal to oily skin types, this mask was a bit too intense to be worn all over on my dry, sensitive skin, it works great as a spot treatment when I'm in a pinch. View Deal
Topshop Faux Leather Biker Jacket
$139 $83 at Nordstrom
Fall is one of those great in-between times when you can wear a slightly lighter winter coat rather than the puffer jackets that you'll live in from December until early April. This faux-leather and shearling-lined biker-style jacket from Topshop is a steal at its full price of $139, so you'll get an even better deal in the sale right now. It comes in two colors (both of which are available for less right now,) but this off-white cream color feels so fresh. After all, you'll probably be wearing head-to-toe black anyways, so adding a pop of white will brighten up your entire look this season. View Deal
Dolce Vita Solow Western Boot
$180 $75 at Nordstrom
Long live the cowboy boot. Not just for wearing on ranches or to rodeos anymore, Western-inspired boots and booties have become one of the fashion set's favorite silhouettes in recent seasons. This light brown suede pair from Dolce Vita are great if you're just now dipping your toe into the trendy style thanks to the neutral colorway and shorter height. The low heel is also great for everyday wear, which means that you can just as easily wear them to the office as you would on a winter date night.View Deal
Nordstrom Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater
$139 $75 at Nordstrom
This is your official reminder to not look past Nordstrom's own in-house brand when shopping the sale this season. This easy-to-style cashmere sweater from the line is a great cold-weather addition to your wardrobe because you can layer it under a thicker jacket or over top of a tank top without adding bulk. Plus, the neutral colorway is timeless. The slightly oversized fit will look great with black leggings or jeans, so it's the ultimate versatile piece in your winter wardrobe. View Deal
Hanky Panky Mid Rise Lace Trim Thong
$24 $13 at Nordstrom
Be honest: When was the last time you bought new pairs of underwear for yourself? If you can't remember, it might be time to shop for some in Nordstrom's massive sale. Hanky Panky makes some of the most comfortable pairs on the market including, somewhat surprisingly, this lacy thong. It's available right now for less than $15 and there are tons of colors and prints to choose from for less, including this heart-printed pair. View Deal
