Nordstrom may have given holiday shoppers an early jump on Black Friday savings, but the big day itself is finally here. So while plenty of our picks from last week are still on sale and in stock, we’ve updated this post with fresh new deals on things we’ve written about before — from our beauty columnist’s favorite gentle cleanser to an eye-catching interior designer–approved lamp. Whether you’re shopping for your father-in-law, your significant other, or yourself, there’s truly something for everyone. And to save you even more time, we’ve separated everything into categories that you can skip straight to by clicking below.

Women’s Fashion


Strategist-favorite Natori bra that fits boobs big and small — now under $50.

Barbara Corcoran herself told us Hanky Panky’s stretchy, one-size-fits-most underwear is “inexpensive and last forever.”

This bouclé cotton sweater from Eileen Fisher is made from organic cotton, which makes it much (much) easier to care for than something woven from wool or cashmere.

Crocs Classic Beach Dye Clog

To be worn with the flamingo-pink Longchamp bag above.

She can’t speak to their comfort yet, but our deals writer Leah Muncy quickly grabbed these knee-high Sam Edelman platform boots when they first went on sale earlier this week (and plans to wear them with tights and a black miniskirt).

Marc Fisher Padmia Chelsea Boot

If you prefer Chelsea boots, here’s a platform pair that’s now 50 percent ($100) off.

Staud Tate Leather Shoulder Bag

We’re particularly charmed by the slightly misshaped O-ring on this little leather bag from Staud.

Made from thick ribbed cotton with extra-long sleeves, this crewneck sweater from Scandinavian brand Samsøe Samsøe looks a whole lot more expensive than it is.


An easy-to-throw-on sweatshirt in a soothing blue-green wash.

When we asked New York City trainers about their favorite workout gear, these Sweaty Betty leggings were a favorite. According to one dance instructor, “The sweat-wicking keeps you dry, the high-quality material forms to your body and how you work out, and the high waist is really comfortable.”

A favorite of celebrities, stylish women, and Strat writer Tembe Denton-Hurst, who was gifted these two years ago and has been wearing them ever since.

Identical in design to our staff-favorite Comme Des Garçons wallet — only much cheaper.
