The Cyber Week Sales Round-Up

To be totally honest I have never been a big Black Friday shopper. Possibly because I am still in a major food coma on the Friday after Thanksgiving. And because I don’t love the crowds. Shopping is a peaceful experience for me. And the pushing, elbow in the ribs, the survival of the fittest kind of thing is not peaceful IMHO. But Cyber Week Sales, now that I can get into…

The whole switch from standing on-line at 5 am on Black Friday in order to save big and receive a door prize giveaway, to Cyber Week sales shopping from the comfort of my own couch has turned me (sort of) into a Black Friday(ish) shopper.

A Cheat Sheet for Cyber Week

There’s a part of me that feels like this post is a cop-out. I am EXHAUSTED and the holiday crazies haven’t even started. But I figured I’d love a comprehensive list of what sales are happening when. And maybe you would too. So that’s what I’m doing… let me know if you like it (or not). The format is a little different but I hope it can serve as a cheat sheet for you to alleviate at least some of the stress of the holiday crazies for you this season.

Shopbop Surprise sale - The Wardrobe Consultant

Shopbop Surprise Sale!?!?

I mean I like surprises and all. And I love a good sale. But this was a surprise for me too so, I didn’t get to plan this one for you guys like I usually do…
None the less, I perused all 1000 pieces and compiled my favorites – mostly pieces I have tried or seen in person. But there is A LOT that is part of this sale so do yourself a favor and check it out for yourself.

Shopbop is one of my favorite contemporary retailers. They carry a lot of quality pieces so this is a chance to scoop them up at a great price – UP TO 40%b off!

The Nordstrom Sale

Don’t Buy it Just Because it’s on Sale

I have a rule about sales and it’s true for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale too. If you wouldn’t buy it at full price than don’t buy it on sale. For real. I can’t tell you how many peoples closets I’ve been in where there are clothes hanging with a tag still on them (like they’ve NEVER BEEN WORN!!) because “it was on sale”.

Bottom line, it’s not a deal if you’re not going to wear it or use it. 

The great part about buying it from Nordstrom is that they pride themselves on customer service and have a very generous return policy. So, if you decide you don’t really like it, with Nordstrom, you can always return it.

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly and The Don’t Waste Your Time…

Nordstrom Sale – What to Get

I LOOOVE that you guys gave me ideas on IG as to what you wanted to see from the big old Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year. And as I said over on stories, I have a bit of #NSale fatigue this year. And it seems about half of you do too.

It may just be that I have summer brain (aka vacation) and a bit there is so much noise out there regarding this sale (sensory overload, like every blogger and their brother, and mother are talking and posting about it – so it feels saturated)

So my thought is this… to keep it short and sweet. And well organized so it is easy to shop.

I’m organizing my picks into 3 categories.

-CLASSICS –  Items I already own, love and stock up on at the sale
-TRY ON SESH – Items I saw in person and tried on
-Fall 2019 “trendy” pieces to add
If you want the low down on men, beauty, etc just let me know – I saw some good things but seriously don’t want to overwhelm.

Sephora Sale – Now’s the time to Stock up and SAVE

Sephora is having a BIG sale! TRUE FACT – Makeup rarely goes on sale at your local beauty counter. But, this week, NOW THRU MAY 6, at Sephora it does!  Yeah, you might get a freebie from your beauty counter to stack in the back of your drawer. Or, maybe a pretty bag that you end up giving to your kids or grandkids, but do you actually really use the stuff? We vote NO because 9 times out of 10, those are the bags we recommend a client donate when we do a closet cleanse. So now’s the time to take advantage of an actual sale at Sephora. And save on products you’ll use.

How it Works…

The MEGA Shopbop Mega SALE – Don’t miss it!

Designer Sales are happening NOW – Here’s what to get where.

The holiday crazies are over, and the designer SALES are ON! Especially at upscale retailers with HUGE savings on designer pieces. We are talking up to 80% off in some cases!

There are a couple of things to keep in mind when shopping these designer sales.

1. With major savings, some items can only be returned for credit or are final sale. This is pretty typical when you’re getting something at 50% off or more. These are amazing pieces at amazing savings,  so it’s totally worth it if you know your size etc and/or if you’ll shop there in the future.

2. And sizes are limited and going fast. So yes, you might love something but so does someone else… it might be gone soon.
The bottom line is, we try to take care of you guys – our loyal readers. So, as we’ve been shopping these designer sales for clients, we’ve been shopping with you in mind too.

Here’s a roundup of what to get where.

We’re running this post early because the Banana Republic Sale ENDS NOVEMBER 6 at MIDNIGHT!!

Yes, I know this is delivering to your inbox Sunday instead of Tuesday. But for good reason. FIRST,  to remind you to make sure you go out and VOTE on Tuesday!! Because your vote counts!!! And apathy ain’t gonna make any changes happen, and we need change! SO PLEASE VOTE! And second,  to reward yourself for fulfilling your civic duty with a little online sale shopping at Banana Republic, sounds like a really good plan, right??? BTW, the sale ends Tuesday at Midnight – so get on it!

You might be thinking, Banana Republic? Really? That store feels like a great place to shop for work clothes but I need…    But  I think most of you, like most of our clients, want pieces in their wardrobes that can serve multiple purposes. Like a blouse, you can wear to the office, or a volunteer meeting but then also wear out on a Saturday night too. And that’s what we’ve found at Banana Republic and it’s all on crazy sale AND it comes in petite and tall sizes too. So, YOU ARE WELCOME!!
