The parade may have come and gone, but Macy’s Black Friday sale is very much here. Lots of the best deals are on home goods — like a KitchenAid stand mixer, a very giftable Nespresso machine, and a well-priced Instant Pot. But there are some nice, seasonally appropriate women’s, men’s, and kids’ clothes on sale too, including cashmere sweaters for less than $50, three-in-one North Face Jackets, and celebrity (and mom) approved UGGs. You can also find deeply discounted beauty products from popular brands, including Mario Badescu and Strategist-favorite Sunday Riley. A bunch of the deals last until November 30 — as in tomorrow, the day after Black Friday — and some even extend through December 7. Note: Some deals require using the code BLKFRI; we’ve noted which below.
