Latest update: Saturday 10:41 AM CST
Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
I hope you have the best Thanksgiving weekend planned ahead! The Cyber sales are already in full swing, so publishing this guide early and will plan to update it all weekend as I find more favorites on sale! As always, I’m highlighting the best of the best sales and discounts that I think are worth your while!
On the other hand, I know many aren’t partaking in shopping this year, and that’s perfectly okay. In fact, that’s great–you should never compromise your financial goals because of FOMO! So either camp you fall into–I am here to support you!
The past couple of years have been hard on so many people, and if you are on a shopping freeze or strict budget this year, let me be the first to assure you–you don’t NEED anything in this guide–so shut this browser, and pick up a book, turn on a holiday movie–whatever! There are many other wonderful things you can be doing that won’t make you feel like you should spend money you don’t need to be spending! (Here are some great holiday books to read if you need ideas!)
If you are in fact shopping this season and make a purchase using my links–THANK YOU! The commission I get from readers shopping through my affiliate links (at no cost to you, of course) makes up a big part of my income and contributes to my own bottom-line. I know most people don’t think about this, but I am also a small, woman-owned business, so I can’t thank you enough for your support!
Now, let’s go!
Shop sales by retailer:
30% off site wide. I love their flannel pajamas and their budget-friendly skinny jeans! They are SO flattering! Also, this bodysuit would be perfect for a winter date night, as would this square necked top! Also, this little black dress looks perfect for weddings year round–and will work for both black tie and cocktail attire!
Current code is JESSHOLIDAY40 and gets you an extra discount than what is available site-wide! This is the best discount they’ll be giving for the rest of the year!
Read my big ABLE favorites post right here (just make note the code change as its an old post!)
AE is 30% off sitewide! AERIE is 40% leggings and sweatshirts!
If you want affordable loungewear, this is the place to shop! The best leggings–their Offline leggings. They’re buttery soft (identical to Align legging material!) They also have SO many cute holiday pajama sets!
Shop all their Cyber Monday deals on this page and will be continuously updated. Certain colors are marked down of my favorite wireless True & Co bra! Also, my favorite Amazon tunic turtleneck sweater. Kindles are also marked down and the best gift ever in my opinion. Also, the Orlay Amazon coat just got marked down 41% off!
My #1 favorite clean beauty brand! Up to 30% off! Check out my *very curated* list of favorites here! They also have a 60-day return policy too which is always great when trying out new skincare products!
Best Buy has a lot of great things on sale that we love–UE speakers, MacBooks, AirPods, Theragun (AKA Neal’s favorite gift ever), even Tragers!! More faves below.
30% off site-wide! Neal loves pretty much everything they make and a massive chunk of his closet is Bonobos, so if you’re looking for stylish, not-too-expensive, but well-made clothing, look no further than Bonobos!
40% off–which NEVER happens! I cannot shout louder about how amazing their turtlenecks are. Have owned both the Cobble Hill and Park Slope in several colors for years now. They also recently came out with a new style called the Greenpoint which is in between the two in terms of length! They are seriously the warmest thing you can own if you live in a cold climate (along with the Old Navy fleece-lined jeans :-P) go with the Vello fleece–it’s the warmest. (Terry fleece is good for warmer climates!)
Awesome seamless, no-slip undies! Up to 40% off! Plus, 10% of every purchase goes to fund micro-loans for women-owned businesses! Lots of pairs are marked down–my favorites are the “cheekies”!
Up to 25% off site wide, plus you can stack my code JESSKEYS on top of my 15% off code! They have so many amazing products that have made such a difference for me in both management of everyday stress and also falling asleep AND staying asleep! I highly recommend taking their quiz or booking a consult with one of their dosage specialists to find the right products for you! More about CBD over here.
Up to 60% off off site wide! While I love a good GAP find personally, where they really shine is their baby clothes. SO. MANY. CUTE. CLOTHES. And very affordable! One of the top places I shop for June!
PJ’s are HALF off!! The BEST jammies–especially if you’re looking for matching family pajamas for the holidays or cute baby PJ’s!
Up to 70% off! Like I mentioned above, I love a great H&M find for myself, but where they really shine is their baby/kids clothes. All affordable, so you don’t feel bad when they grow out of them or trash them! June has been growing like a weed lately so I plan to stock up, especially on little multipack sets like these, which are great for daycare.
50%+ off sitewide, use code SHOPEARLY! (So many markdowns! WOW!) I always recommend J.Crew for coats, so if you’re looking for a warm non-puffy winter coat, can’t recommend the Cocoon Coat or Lady Day coat enough! Also, of course, tissue turtlenecks–now 60% off!
40% off site wide, use code PARTY! Includes my favorite super comfy and so cute clog booties! (They brought them back this year!!)
40% off with code OHJOY!
Up to 50% off! This is one of my favorite retailers for really nice, practical gifts (you can monogram everything too!)–especially great for gifts for parents and in-laws!
25% off everything (including fabric gifts, which they never do!) with my code JESSCM25. (This is always one of my top reccos to shop for parents and grandparents and other sentimental gifts!) I’m not sure if that also works on holiday cards, but if not, my holiday card code is JESSCARDS22 and will get you 20% off!
Up to 60% off tons of items! Most notable markdowns right now: RAY BANS! (My favorite sunnies are this hexagon pair) Spanx leggings and Blondo (my favorite waterproof suede boots!), my favorite wireless bra and my favorite Natori bra if you prefer underwire! (Both are under $40!!)
50% off site-wide! (Depending on the item!) Do NOT sleep on their fleece-lined “warm” jeans! They are SO comfortable, soft, and cozy! Feel like sweatpants! I also love their holiday PJ’s! I also often find some really cute baby clothes at Old Navy!
25% off site wide with code HOLIDAY!
Perhaps most excitingly, lots of AGOLDE items on sale, including my favorite Riley jeans! Plus, Loeffler Randall is part of the sale–including my favorite bow heels and these never go on sale! (The Emelia is a lower heel, the Penny is a bit higher heel, and the Camelia is a higher heel with an ankle strap. I own all three! They’re so comfortable and I wear them year-round! More casually in the summer but still for special occasions in winter!)
20% off sitewide, plus 25% off orders over $500 and 30% off all orders over $1000!
20% off sitewide, no code needed! My wonderful friend Ali’s boutique (who made the VOTE tees in 2020!) My favorites are her Chicago tees and sweatshirts, but she has so many cute clothing and gift items and everything is around or under $100!
Another adorable Lincoln Park boutique (that sells all her merch online!) is All She Wrote! She stocks beautiful cards and stationery, but tons of other fun gifts–many of which you can personalize and monogram! Don’t sleep on their amazing collection of cute and cheeky ornaments. Running 20% off right now!

The famed nap dress (and more!) discounted by 40% which I have never seen happen! The Ellie nap dress is my favorite and it runs big–size down at least one size!
25% off everything site wide! I feel like I never see them do site wide sales! I always recommend them for dresses (I own several!) Black tie, cocktail, whatever! Also have my eye on these trousers and they have the most beautiful sweaters. I honestly don’t shop a lot for myself on Black Friday weekend but I’m about to do some major damage here. 😂
Sale picks for her
THE Amazon coat: 41% off ($88!)
Been waiting for this markdown–hooray! The most budget-friendly SUPER warm winter coat. The best part is that it expands at the sides so it’s perfect for moms so you can wear your baby and zip them up inside! (Great for pregnancy too!) I reviewed it in detail in this blog post.
ASTR date night top:
I’m always looking for cute date night tops for winter and I know you all are too! This floral top will look SO cute with high waisted leather pants (below! Also on sale!) and it’s marked down to $68. I have a couple friends who have this and love it! This black top is another super cute date night option on sale! You can shop Revolves whole sale here!
Reformation sweater: (25% off site wide!)
OK I have been thinking about this sweater for MONTHS and it was so expensive but now that it’s under $200 it’s in my cart. 😂 It’s SO pretty. Comes in multiple colors, too! The whole site is 25% off! I always recommend them for dresses (I own several!) Black tie, cocktail, whatever! Also have my eye on these trousers and they have the most beautiful sweaters.
You’ll probably notice there’s a theme of coats and boots in this roundup. This weekend is the best time to buy them! I have an older version of these Sorel Emelie boots and they’re great because they aren’t bulky snow boots but you’ll reach for them a lot in snow, slush, any gross winter weather. Run TTS in my experience! Definitely worth perusing the whole Sorel site because they have a lot of great styles 50% off. (Includes men’s styles too!)
My favorite Sierra boots are marked down, hooray! They also come in a beautiful new chocolate brown color. Waterproof (rain, slush, nothing stops these boots–ready to go straight out of the box!) They will be your winter go-to for years to come. They have great traction, too. TTS. More Blondo styles (ALL waterproof) are on sale at Nordstrom.
P.Volve starter kit:
Right now they’re offering 40% off–the best discount I’ve ever seen them offer! I am a HUGE fan of P.Volve and their low-impact but effective at-home workouts. The starter kit includes the equipment you need (which is small space friendly and easy to store!) and three months of access to their massive library of workout videos, access to any of their live virtual studio workouts, a one-on-one with a P.Volve trainer! They have so many great classes based on your preference–many of them are just 20 minutes. I would say if you’re a fan of Pilates or Barre, you will love P.Volve. It’s effective on its own or a great compliment to your regular studio workouts, and you can always find a workout to squeeze in no matter how busy or how much energy you have! Readers also rave about their pelvic floor series!
Nordstrom water resistant Chelsea boots:
Speaking of stylish waterproof boots–I have the older version of these (they were so popular that they came out with more colors and a slightly updated style this year!) If you’re looking for a lug-sole Chelsea boot–you will love these. They’re amazing and I wear them all the time in the crappy rain, slush–whatever. So nice to have weather resistant options that aren’t snow/rain boots! Run TTS.
True & Co Wireless Bra:
My FAVORITE wireless bra. Nothing tops it–NADA! I even bought 3 new ones at full price (as I needed to size up) when I was pregnant because they were THAT good. Feel like butter–have removable light pads (which is key). They run TTS. Buy more than one, you’ll be thankful! Amazon has certain colors as low as $23 right now. (Nearly half off!) Also available at Nordstrom.
J.Crew Tissue Turtleneck Tee: HALF OFF
Another OG bestseller–I couldn’t get through winter without these turtleneck tees! Super thin, the perfect base layer.Runs TTS. If you want more of a really tight “bodysuit” type look, size down.
Aerie Offline Leggings (AKA the most comfy leggings on earth)
Feel just like Lululemons Align leggings at a price that will make you fall over in the best way. Another one of my bestsellers. All the women in your life will love a pair of these! The best lounge leggings out there! Come in tons of colors too! Currently on sale for $31! Run TTS. I wear smalls and sized up to mediums when pregnant and they fit me my entire pregnancy!
Madewell lug sole loafers:
Speaking of Shaheen, she also has been raving about these Madewell lug sole loafers that are SO cute and also 30% off, if you’re in the market for some loafers!
Pretty much the entire ABLE website is on sale, but worth mentioning, my trusty Alem backpack is still in stock in all colors! Whether you want it for work, travel, as a diaper bag–whatever. It’s great, and so beautiful. Full review of it here! (Note they’ve changed the style slightly since my review, but I believe all the features are the same!) Use code JESSHOLIDAY40 for 40% off!!
Old Navy Warm jeans: 50% off!! ($25 each!)
Cold climate girls, listen up! These are the best possible jeans you could buy to get you through bitter cold winter temps. They are WONDERFUL. SO warm–lined with a super soft, light fleecy material. I won’t wear any other jeans outside once December rolls around. Buy a pair for your bestie, mom, and anyone else you know who is always cold! (These jeans are all my mom wears from October through May–she’s ALWAYS cold!)
I cannot shout louder about how amazing their turtlenecks are! Their Vello Fleece Cobblie Hill and Park Slope styles are my favorite and absolute essentials for any cold weather climate! They are SO warm and way more chic than your regular fleece!
One of my most worn, favorite dresses–I own three colors that I live in during the summer and I love their winter patterns too–so cute to layer over a bodysuit or turtleneck! (Worn with high boots? SO CUTE!) I never see them on sale!
My favorite T3 items are on sale! My trusty curling iron (comes with multiple barrels) and holds curl better (and curls faster) than any curling iron I’ve ever used. Have also loved and used their hairdryer forever (it’s so lightweight and dries quickly!) and their straightener is great too!
Best dry shampoo EVER. It’s like a miscellar water so it actually CLEANS your hair. Mist onto roots (enough to dampen) and then shoot roots with a hair dryer. (Round brush optional but helpful!) BOOM. Looks freshly washed
Sale picks for him
Our favorite portable speaker. Yes I’m listing it under the men’s guide (it’s Neal’s) but really, both of us love it equally! It’s awesome on the go but powerful enough for a party on the deck–a REALLY great gift he’ll actually use!
Probably one of Neal’s favorite gifts of all time. An amazing gift for any workout/wellness lover–he’s tried the less expensive versions and nothing touches this! It is INTENSE but does wonders for sore muscles.
He loved his full-size theragun so much I got him the mini last year for Christmas! He loves this one to keep in the gym bag, for travel or just to keep by his desk or nightstand. It’s on sale for $159! (Was $200!) Perfect for any workout lover.
J.Crew Primaloft Shirt Jacket:
Stylish and versatile–it’s lined with Primaloft, which is J.Crew’s really warm insulation (not super bulky!) So this shirt jacket makes a great outer layer in the fall, or under layer in the winter. Whether he’s more an “outdoorsy beer garden” or an “outdoorsy hiker” kinda guy, he’ll get a ton of wear out of this!
Pottery Barn Bar Set: Now $55
The bar set Neal selected for his gift guide (his is very similar but several years old, so can’t link exact!) Timeless, never goes out of style, and always useful for years to come.
A splurge, but I feel like every grill enthusiast wants a Traeger pellet smoker! The ultimate gift for any guy who loves to cook or BBQ! Lots of different models at different price points but right now I’m seeing them for $100-$200 off!
