According to American tradition, last week was the week to be thankful and this is the week to buy stuff. I don’t know who made this up and to be honest, I’m utterly confused by it so I did some Wikipedia research (which I know is hardly real research) but hear me out. Black Friday has been around since 1952 but its name back then was “Oh snap! It’s officially the holiday season and I should start buying gifts.” Then retailers started catching on, began to lower prices to attract shoppers, and shoppers really leaned into the idea (who wouldn’t!?). Then fast forward to now where the digital world has taken off and cyber sales are on the rise. Thus: the birth of Cyber Monday. Okay, I know you probably didn’t click on this post for a history lesson and I’m definitely not qualified to teach one. So let’s get on with it. Much like leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner, the sales from these holidays are still here and they taste even better than they did the first time around.
We used a boatload of great things from Lulu and Georgia in the Mountain House. Not to name names, but this platform bed we used in the guest room and this coffee table in the living room are 20% off. Wait. Everything on their site is 20% off right now! Use code: CYBER20
The Anthropologie gods have spoken. They’re having a MASSIVE sale on tops and sweaters and I’m just about ready to cozy up in every single one. This sweater, in particular, piqued my interest because it’s super versatile and only $59.
One of our favorite furniture brands, Industry West has extended their Cyber Monday sale to run through December 8th. The sale is 25% off sitewide and you get free shipping with the code IWCYBMON. Do these stools from this post jog your memory??
We’re planning a really fun top-secret shoot next week and all I can say is that a lot of the team got some deals from ASOS up to 50% off party dress sale.
If you didn’t know, Emily is a Nike loyalist since she’s from Portland and two of her best friends work there. Her favorite running shoes are 45% off, but since there aren’t many sizes left for those we thought, you should know that all Nike is up to 45% off at Nordstrom Rack right now.
If you’re in need of kid gifts, Target is having a sale where toys are up to 50% off. If your kids/nieces/nephews/etc. are like Birdie and are wildly obsessed with Frozen (and now Frozen II) here’s what you need to know: Disney toys are buy 2 get one free (which is perfect for buying gifts for multiple kids). Here’s an Elsa doll Em has her eyes on that’s perfect for any Frozen-obsessed child that now wants to be an ice queen.
I’ll leave the sales section with this: if you haven’t started holiday decorating (which most of EHD has except for me and a few stragglers) don’t worry because it’s not too late. There are still cool and affordable decor ideas out there and we’re here to help. For example, here’s a cute little Christmas ornament from West Elm that’s 40% off (and since it was $10 originally) it’s only $6 now! Start with that and we’ll have more Christmas coming your way SOON.
New Brands We Love
ZZ Driggs is a company that’s doing things the sustainable way. They have a community of craftsmen that make high end, gorgeous and incredibly unique furniture that you can rent or buy. (If you rent it means you basically never have to move furniture yourself again since they deliver it and pick it up). The only current catch with this one is that you need to request an invitation to enter the site. But trust us IT’S SO GOOD. What do you guys think about renting furniture month to month? There’s a new wave of furniture rental companies popping up and I’d love to hear your thoughts. 🙂
Labucq is a Los Angeles-based company that was founded by Lauren Bucquet who was the former Director of Footwear and Accessories at Rag & Bone (fancy, right?) Well yes, this brand is fancy, but it ALSO is doing real cool things. The company’s main mission is to get consumers the best price for the quality. And they’re doing that by showing the EXACT costs to make their shoes (see below). It’s pretty genius.
&Jacob is a Mexico based company Jess found and has now made everyone at the office VERY obsessed. They hand make beautiful homewares in Mexico. For whoever is Jess’s Secret Santa: she wants the honey dipper. 🙂
That’s all for today, folks. See you next week (well, and also tomorrow)!
