The Best Black Friday Deals to Shop Now!

Black Friday deals

Black FRIDAY! Today I wanted to share my favorite sales (and what to get) with you now! I will be updating this post DAILY between now and Cyber Monday so be sure to bookmark it and/or check back frequently. I also wrote a post JUST about Dr. Bader and where to get it on sale. That has been my number one question!

The Best Black Friday Deals

I hope this post is helpful. In the meantime, happy Thanksgiving! Other than updating this post throughout the sale I will be taking off from the blog for the next few days… back Monday with regular programming!


Glossier never does sales except Black Friday (I think, at least!). I ordered more body hero (read my review but the orange blossom scent is just PERFECTION + $28 for the duo is fantastic) and Lash Slick (the best everyday mascara; only $12.80 with the sale but read my review). I was feeling like trying some new things so I also ordered the lip gloss (in red) and the gold eye glitter.


Beautycounter is offering 15% off! My personal favorites are this body wash, this blush (the perfect clean dupe for NARS Orgasm – read my post about that!), and of course my beloved Dew Skin (the prettiest tinted moisturizer, with SPF!). Also, the overnight peel!

And if you want to try Countertime (their new-ish anti-aging line), def read my review! My favorites from that line are the cleansing oil, the serum, and the soft cream! Everything was great except the eye cream (made my eyes water).

Sarah Flint

Sarah Flint makes hands down, my favorite shoes! They doing their “buy more, save more” event from Monday to Monday (November 25th to December 2nd)! Buy 2 pairs get $100 off, buy 3 pairs $150 off, buy 4 pairs get $200 off. Their shoes are obviously a bit of an investment but they are the actual best. I would recommend the perfect bootie (70mm), the perfect pump (85mm) or the perfect sandal (85mm). I also really love the Emma slingbacks!

Where to Get Dr. Bader on Sale

This is the question I’ve gotten asked the most. Dr. Bader is not doing a sale on their site for Black Friday. BUT you can get it at Violet Grey during their big tiered sale. I wrote a post with all the details here, and if I find a better offer I will be sure to let you know! I do recommend getting it now as during the last Violet Grey sale, they sold out of it!


My friends at Megababe are offering 20% off sitewide with code MEGA20! The happy pits detox mask is my personal favorite (read my review here!), and I always keep a few of their wipes in my purse (they’re not just for “down there,” they’re also great for makeup emergencies, after the gym, or to wipe down your airplane seat in a pinch – there are 1,000 uses for the!) Their best selling thigh chafe stick is also a part of the sale, as is the rosy pits deodorant (full disclosure: this does not work for me which breaks my heart bc I love the fragrance BUT deodorant is all about your body’s chemistry!!)

Holst + Lee

Holst + Lee is my friend Natalie’s jewelry brand and her new stuff is amazing! With code SHOP, you can take 25% off sitewide! My favs are her signature magnetic bracelets (the GREEN!) and all the new heart evil eye stuff (I have + love these hoops, you’ll be seeing a lot of them soon). Her vintage scarf necklaces are also so so gorgeous and the perfect way to instantly elevate a simple tea and jeans.


You know Equilibria is my FAV CBD (read all about it in this post) but the big thing to know is that my usual code (graceatwood) is only good for your first purchase. Today, everyone can use it! I love all of their products. The 25mg softgels guarantee I’ll sleep through the night, the daily drops are great for everyday use, and OH MAN the relief cream is amazing! They also have an incredible holiday set that includes two bath bombs (heaven) and a handy CBD oil roller for instant stress relief. Use code graceatwoodBF!


Nordstrom has a lot of good things on sale. The most notable thing is that they brought back one of my favorite tunic sweaters from last year (seriously – so happy, I love it so much!) AND it’s on sale. Also notable: my fav Spanx leggings. LIVE in these this time of year. (They’d look great with the tunic sweater!!) I also really love this Topshop coat (only $75!) and this cozy fleece pullover.

There are also quite a few amazing beauty deals. There’s a lot to go through but I have and love this makeup mirror. It’s great if you don’t have good lighting in your bathroom, but also fun fact… it’s what I use to film my beauty videos for IGTV! And it’s so easy – you can just stick your phone to it and record.


Sephora’s big sale was earlier this month but now through 12/2, they’re offering up to 50% off select items. It’s worth persusing. I bought this eye palette earlier this year and really like it – the bronzy glitters are so pretty on blue eyes! Or, you can get the Naked Palette 2 for half off. I also love this “next big thing set,” and Bite’s Agave Lip Mask makes a great stocking stuffer!


Though I’m mostly Sarah Flint through and through I would say that Margaux is my number two favorite. They NEVER have sales but now through Sunday you can take 20% off using code GAUXFORIT. My two fav pairs of Margaux shoes are these leopard pumps (I’ve had them for a couple years now and they hold up really well!) and these gold sandals!

Night Pillow

Night Pillow gave us our own special Black Friday code for the podcast. It’s BOP30 which will get you 30% off sitewide! Take 30% off your entire order, through Cyber Monday! I love their pillows so much. I have two king pillows. Also, I take their amazing travel pillow on every trip I go on. Lastly, the sheet masks are EPIC. They have gold in them and make you GLOW! I try to remember to bring one every time I travel!

Tanya Taylor

Tanya Taylor is having an archive sale with 70% off select styles from the past!!! (No code necessary). There are so many good things – you don’t want to miss it! I recommend updating the filter to show from new to old. So many dresses that I have and love are included. They err on the more summery side but it doesn’t matter as the silhouettes are so timeless. This red wrap dress and this lilac dress are two favs, and I also have + love this TOP!

Veronica Beard

Veronica Beard is offering an extra 15% off sale styles with code GOBBLE. There’s a lot of great stuff included in the sale. Obviously I am very biased toward their jackets (NOTHING IS BETTER – peruse all sale jackets here) but I’m also loving  all of their dresses, too! Honestly though, this little black jacket is classic and chic (and a great price for Veronica Beard) – that’s what my number one pick would be!


BaubleBar is offering 35% off sitewide! Their new “festive” section is the jewelry equivalent to an ugly Christmas sweater, in the best way possible. I want it all, especially this gift wrap hair clip. My other picks would be my favorite gold hoop earrings (I love them so much – they’re big but really lightweight and the quality is great -I’ve had them for years now and they’ve yet to tarnish)! And though it’s not 35% off, my fav personalized phone case is on sale this year (they never discount it!!)

BaubleBar’s big sale item this year is their best selling Alidia Ring. This ring is SO PRETTY,  comes in a million colors and is marked down from $44 to $12. This is a crazy deal and would be a great gift for all your best girlfriends! The twist mini is part of the sale (the clear looks a lot like my favorite Suzanne Kalan diamond band – the one I wear every day) as is the mini version!


Shopbop’s Tiered Sale is always amazing! (Runs Tuesday 11/20 through 11/27) Use Code MORE19 to save up to 25% off.  (Take 15% off orders of $200+, 20% off orders of $500+, and 25% off orders of $800+) Some brands are excluded, see more of that here.

a few of my fav shopbop picks: the best sneakers ever (I have in grey, navy, and white!), my current favorite fancy blouse, this dress which I wear to every event lately, my fav little leopard dress (it looks so much more expensive than it actually is), and the best lace top!


J.Crew also started their offer early! Take 50% off sitewide. Use code SHOPFIRST. A lot of things are excluded, but there are some great deals to be had. Also! The chateau parka (my FAVORITE) is a part of this sale (it’s usually excluded from most of J.Crew’s sales) so… if you’ve had your eye on it, snag it now! I have it in red but am seriously considering the other colors, too!

Other favorites from J.Crew (all stuff I have and LOVE): This cozy mockneck sweater, the best snowboots ever (I’ve had for a few years now!), these amazing silk leopard pants (I love wearing these on the plane!), one of my favorite pairs of statement earrings, and of course these cozy (but very chic) striped PJs!

    Great roundup, Grace! I’m trying to do fewer, better for my wardrobe (and my gift giving) so this is a great list. Just bought the Veronica Beard jacket, amazing recommendation! I needed a good black blazer and what a price!

    Thanks for this! Scored a few awesome things that are great deals AND great quality that I would have never found without your help. Yay!

    Cult Beauty, a UK based cosmetics site, also has Dr. Bader with free shipping! They also remove the VAT if you are not in the EU, so the rich cream costs 219. It also removes sales tax, which you would have to pay through Violet Grey so it ends up being slightly cheaper. I live in WA so the 10.1% tax really adds up.

    Hi Grace!! What size do you wear in The Veronica Beard blazer you’ve been wearing? It’s gorgeous on you!

    • Hey Rachel,

      It runs true to size – though if you are broad in the shoulders I recommend sizing up. I wear a 6 in all their blazers.
