Black Friday is tomorrow, but you best prepare your strategy today. Remember: wear comfy shoes, a hands-free bag, and take deep breaths. Black Friday can be a doozy, but worth the craziness. Here are some of my picks to help you brave the year's most exciting shopping day:
- Shopbop: Shopbop is holding a special sale — it starts Friday and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 30. Spend $300 or more and save $50; spend $500 or more, save $100; spend $700 or more, save $150; and spend $1,000 or more, save $225. The outerwear selection is pretty pricey so perhaps I can save some moolah there. Promo code: GIFT4U.
- H&M: Most H&M stores will open at 6 a.m.; some will open as early as 5 a.m. Twenty-five percent off any item of your choice from opening until 10 a.m. Fashion finds starting at $5. Select outerwear styles at 50 percent off. Boo-ya.
