Shop My Look
Dress | Ivy Rowe (different pattern)
This may come as a shock, but I’ve never been a big Black Friday shopping person. One year in high school I stood in line with my friend, waiting for Target to open so we could get a highly coveted hot pink digital camera, and last year I picked up a few items online for Gerald’s holiday gifts, but this year I did my homework!
There are a ton of big brand deals out there today, but I love supporting small and woman-owned businesses, so instead of giving you a list of the specials you already know about, here are the deals my favorite boutiques are having for Black Friday. Each features unique items that are perfect for treating yourself, a friend, or even a fashion forward relative. I’ve had wonderful experiences with each of these small businesses, and I hope you do too!
- Spend up to $75 get 30% off
- Spend $75-$150 Get 40% off
- Spend $150+ get 50% off
Discount will automatically apply at checkout.
I discovered this Charleston boutique on Instagram when I spotted the dress featured in this post on a girl I used to work with and was able to buy it directly through Instagram messaging from the store! The dress wasn’t available online, but they invoiced me for it on the spot, helped me figure out my size, and even sent me a complimentary koozie with my package. That’s what I call customer service, and you won’t find that at big retailers!
- 30% off site wide till Friday
- 20% off Friday until midnight
- All lux brands, Spanx, and Show Me Your Mumu brands will be 20% off all weekend
If you don’t have a pair of Spanx leggings, RUN to your computer and get a pair now. They are the best investment to your fall and winter wardrobe that you will ever make and they rarely go on sale. I have both the plain and moto styles and would wear them every day if I could. Vestique also features a ton of on trend items, but sometimes sizing can run a little small (think like teen sizing) so definitely be sure to double check the sizing charts on each item!
- 15% off all day Friday, in-store and online
- 25-50% off in-store on Saturday when you pick a spot off their “Dalmatian wall”
- 15% off all day Monday online
This brand new DC store is so freaking adorable and the owner and on-site team could not be nicer. The store has a TON of amazing stocking stuffers in addition to trendy and extremely affordable pieces. It’s also right on 14th Street so you don’t have to schlep to Georgetown with all of the other holiday shoppers! Oh, and there’s champagne on tap, enough said.
- 15% off all foundations and concealers through 11/30
Ivy Wild is a new, all natural skincare and makeup shop in the Manhattan Laundry building and I absolutely love their products and the knowledgeable gals who run (and own!) the store. (Read all about my love for the store here.)They changed my life by showing me my Saint Cosmetics foundation and I highly recommended trying it for yourself at the discounted rate! If you’re not local, you can call up the shop and they’ll happily take orders over the phone and ship it to you.
- 30% off site wide
Another boutique with southern roots, this is where I got the striped dress as an option for my bachelorette party that you all loved! The shop has a huge selection of items online, all at affordable prices, and free shipping over $50.
