Columbus day weekend sales are the best ones we’ll see before Black Friday. However, I’ve realized that some of the deals I’ve scored on Columbus Day weekend are far better than the ones I’ve seen on Black Friday. To help you guys kick off or add to your fall wardrobe, I’m sharing some of my favorite sales and picks for the BIG day. And good news! You don’t have to leave your couch on this rainy weekend because the same sales are available online.
Ann Taylor. This weekend until Monday night, everything at Ann Taylor is an additional 50-percent off with code FALL50 at checkout. Below I included some of my favorites. (From right to left) Everyone could use a tweed blazer. This Mixed Tweed One Button Blazer is a favorite. Wear it with matching tweed pants or your favorite pair of denim; can you say serious staple? Moto jackets never go out of style and while I may have one too many, I think I’ll have to include this Wool Blend Moto Jacket to my closet. UM. Fall is synonymous with leather and when you combine comfortable legging stretch with faux leather, you have to stock up on more than one pair. Whether you prefer chunky knits or fitted tops, these Faux Leather Leggings are your girl. Other necessities include: Tallulah Suede Booties, Ribbed Cashmere Cardigan and (already snagged these with my birthday coupon) Pinstripe Refined Kick Crop Flare.
Banana Republic. I couldn’t forget my most-shopped store: Banana Republic. This weekend they are offering an additional 50-percent off (taken at checkout, no code necessary). UM. GUYS. Can you say: my shopping prayers have been answered?! Some of the pieces I’m pining for are: this on-trend blush Eyelash Pullover (cozy and cute). Everyone could use a classic white fitted point collar and bow tie button down and this Riley-Fit Bow Shirt is my front-runner for the season. Casual coats are an obsession of mine and I always seem to acquire more than I can wear in a season. I even told myself to put an end to purchasing coats. However, Banana’s Melton Wool Wrap Jacket is an absolute exception. This blush wool wrap jacket with tie closure is a romantic staple that I just MUST HAVE this fall season. It’s cozy, warm and relatively light-weight. Others I absolutely need: the Mini Cross-Body Bag and the Dina Shoe to top off my fall closet.
H&M. I’ll be honest, I haven’t been shopping H&M lately, but when I realized they were having a 60-percent off sale for the holiday weekend, I couldn’t resist. Even though the sale applied to select items, there are more than 1492 to choose from, to be exact (how fitting). I went straight for the neutrals, which include their Wool-blend Coat, Long Cotton Shirt, Pile-lined Suede Sneakers, and Platform boots. These choices are obvious, right?
Go on out there and get your Columbus Day shopping done and share with me your most prized purchases!
