Nordstrom Thanksgiving Sale: Workwear Picks

nordstrom thanksgiving sale 2017Thanksgiving Day update: almost everything in this post is an EXTRA 20% off, Thanksgiving day only!

I’ve been a busy bee going through the early Nordstrom Thanksgiving sale all day! Note that they’ve kind of got two sales going on right now: one is the big designer clearance sale they always have around this time of year, and the second is early markdowns hitting the racks in anticipation of their usual Thanksgiving sale — with TONS of workwear under $100.  On the designer side of things, I’m noticing a lot of sale items for Manolo Blahnik, Chloé, Max MaraAkris punto, Prada and more — and on the regular side of things, lots of good deals on J.Crew, Lafayette 148 New York, Kate Spade New York, Nic + ZoeAGLStuart Weitzman, and Tahari. Note that there are also lots of good deals on beauty, including on Urban Decay (some up to 50% off!), MAC, Philosophy, and Bobbi Brown — and of course some great deals on lingerie including NatoriChantelle, Hanky Panky, Yummie Tummie, and more. I’ll have to save the shoes and accessories in the Nordstrom Thanksgiving sale for another post — stay tuned!

Thanksgiving / Black Friday Open Thread

what to buy for black friday 2017I see that Nordstrom is already starting to mark down stuff for their big sale that usually starts Thanksgiving night — I’ll try to do a roundup for everyone this afternoon. In the meantime, here’s a fun open thread for everyone, with a few questions…

a) What are you bringing to Thanksgiving dinner (or if you’re not celebrating Thanksgiving, in general what do you bring to large family gatherings?) Share with us your favorite wines, cheeses, hostess gifts, recipes, and more! (This year I’m going to try to force my 6 year old to help me to make these candy corn cookies, but if anyone has recipes for leftover Halloween candy I’ll take those also!)

b) What are you keeping an eye out for on Black Friday and Cyber Monday? I usually buy an embarrassing amount of stuff from Nordstrom (occupational hazard), and have my eye on a few different things for biggish family purchases. I’m also hoping to find a batch of good gift cards on sale (it seems like we have a zillion teachers and therapists to thank this year!), and if I saw another UE Boom for under $100 I’d grab that too. I also found a ton of different blogging tools had great Black Friday deals last year, so I’ll be keeping an eye on those. (What have you gotten great deals on in the past on Black Friday? This was our roundup of Black Friday sales for workwear last year to give you an idea of what to expect from various stores…)

c) If you are doing turkey this Thanksgiving — what are your favorite recipes for leftovers? 

Let’s hear it, readers…

The Nordstrom Fall Sale is on, so I thought I’d do a roundup of some great pieces I’m seeing for work… There are lots of lucky sizes left in clothes, so you’re probably best advised to start by narrowing down to just your size range(s) — but as far as shoes and bags go there are a TON of great things left.

Check out our full selection, after the jump… a few favorites, pictured above (clockwise): black tote / gray suit / purple watch (tons of color options) / black bootie / blue bag / sunglasses / clutch / hot pink cardigan and shell
