Sales + Budget Buys

Sale Snacks: Lake Pajamas, Jenni Kayne + More Early Black Friday Deals.

By: Jen Shoop

What has struck me this year is how many brands have started their promotions early this season! Below, some great new additions to my sale roundup from yesterday.

OUTDOOR VOICES. 30% off everything. I’m not a huge fan of their pieces for me (they fit me strangely and I don’t love the material — too constricting) BUT Mr. Magpie loves their CloudKnit joggers. Great gift! I am also eyeing this classic sweatpant and sweatshirt set in heathered gray. Timeless and I like the fit. A great way to upgrade him out of his worn-thin-and-holey UVA gear.

ALICE WALK. 20% off everything. You know I am a HUGE advocate of their knits (you can see me in my knit cape over here). I own and adore this alpaca sweater. My husband and I call sweaters like this “murder sweaters” (affectionately, of course) because they are SO WARM that you cannot wear them if you are going to be inside. You can basically go outside in 20 degree weather and feel fine wearing one of those badboys. This cotton weekender sweater has been on my radar for awhile as a perfect all-year-round piece, and if you’re new to the brand, don’t sleep on their striped pima cotton tees (full review here). They are impossibly soft with a decent amount of stretch but hold a really nice shape. Last but not least, these cashmere wraps make a perfect gift for the gal who has everything.

TUCKERNUCK. 20% off everything, and up to 30% off the more you spend. Top picks:










MERIT. 20% off sitewide with code EARLYACCESS22. You know I was really impressed with their $38 serum ($30 with code) — it really turns on your skin, but gently. Full review here. Was also really impressed with the consistency of their cheek color balm — it truly melts into skin — but I didn’t love the color I picked (cheeky — it’s a bit too brown on me).

LAKE PAJAMAS. This sale starts today at 10 AM with 25% off everything and up to 50% off select items. Now is the time to order holiday pajamas (I’m wearing these to match mini) or gifts for loved ones (this is my favorite style — I own at least three pairs in this style? — and I’ve given them to a lot of my friends). I have been wearing this star print long set (a good option if you do not celebrate the Christian holiday of Christmas but want something wintry and festive) so often that mini has commented multiple times: “You’re wearing those again?” Haha. I know I mention this brand all the time but I love the quality, the patterns, and the pricepoint — not so precious that you feel guilty about tossing them in the laundry, especially when they are on sale! Just a great everyday luxury. This is so random but every time I reach for my Oribe shampoo in the shower, I notice the inscription on the bottle: an everyday indulgence. I love that phrase and that mentality. Like, how might we make the little things just a little more indulgent? Better PJs, more luxurious shampoo, etc. Lake fits into this scheme for me.

DOEN. Where to even begin? I’ve been eyeing this mini (or the sailor top counterpart) all season, this plaid is a nice lightweight fall-to-holiday option, their wildly popular Jane blouse is discounted in several patterns/colors, and this dress is in my cart for my birthday next summer. (#Anticipatorsunite.). Lastly, mini (named Emory) needs to have their Emory dress!!!

LA LIGNE. 50% off select styles. You know I am evangelical about this brand — it just feels like they nail exactly what I want to wear. The best, most fun knits; flattering, modern dresses; REALLY great (trend-leading) colors. Perfection. They have been adding new items every few days, but this sweater is classic and will be in your closet forever and ever, and I own a very similar style to this dress from last season that I’ve already worn three times this year.

LITTLE ENGLISH. Perhaps strangely the sale I am most looking forward to? I have my clock set for this at 10 AM EST this morning. Up to 50% off sitewide. I really love their printed turtlenecks for girls and boys and am hoping to stock up on a few extra for both my children (for this season and next). I already bought him a few of their intarsia sweaters (including this duck one) but might go back for the dog and maybe these cord overalls, too. I usually place a few orders here and TBBC each year so love to snag a discount! I already shared TBBC’s sale yesterday — 40% off sitewide, plus free ship — but I bought mini this holiday dress, some more jammies, and a few Polly play dresses (some only $12!). Those play dresses are fabulous for everyday running around / camp in the summer. Really soft cotton with a nice fit. We pair them with Natives or Golden Goose sneaks! I also bought micro these superhero jams for like $20. They were sold out in his current size but bought up a size and will have them at the ready! This brand runs narrow and long in jams.

JENNI KAYNE. 25% off sitewide; discount appears in cart. Now is the time to try their cult favorite cashmere cocoon sweater or marina culottes (apparently ideal to travel in according to my travel expert friend Jacqueline!).

DUDLEY STEPHENS. 40% off sitewide. If you’ve never tried one of their turtleneck pullovers, you are in for a treat. I was skeptical of this brand because I saw it promoted everywhere and did not really “get it.” But I find myself reaching for this exact pullover in the basil green ALL THE TIME. Very soft but a nice thin layerable piece with a structured collar — a dressed up sweatshirt that totally looks pulled together even when you have just rolled out of bed for school drop-off. Great gift, too!

TODD SNYDER. 30% off sitewide. If you’ve been following for awhile, you know this is Mr. Magpie’s go-to brand. They have great colors and styles that feel more modern and trend-conscious (but still play nicely with traditional pieces like oxfords, loafers) than, say, Brooks Brothers. If you want your man to look a little more stylish, this is where you need to head next. Try their cords first — super-fine-wale and in the best colors. Mr. Magpie owns a few pairs, but we added the olive green to his closet a few weeks ago. He also really loves these waffled cashmere pullovers and cableknit sweaters, and has been wearing this fleece in the green color all season long.

J. CREW. Can’t not mention J. Crew. I’ve placed like three orders in a week. 50% off nearly everything. I bought a few sweaters and tissue turtlenecks for mini — do not miss this darling cardigan. Mini was so excited when she saw it, and it goes with so much of her closet! I also love their outerwear for children. Mini had a style similar to this the last two seasons and it was just adorable (and warm!). For boys: holiday button-downs, classic cable knit sweaters to pair with everything from dress pants to jeans, and cozy reversible half-zips. For us: cozy sweaters in great colors to wear while puzzling, drinking coffee, and online shopping; velvet Mary Janes for festive attire all season long; and cashmere beanies for all those impossible-to-shop-for people on the list (I’ve given hats/gloves to doorwomen, teachers, housekeepers, etc — who doesn’t love a cashmere hat?!). Also. These boots are pretty epic — sort of a hybrid between my go-to No 6 clog boots and something more elevated?

KULE. Up to 50% off. I love the look of this striped turtleneck, and you know my thoughts on their striped modern long tees — SO good. You can also get $50 off this fabulous full-priced sweater with code KULEYULE.

BIOSSANCE. 30% off sitewide. If you’ve not tried their rose vitamin c face oil, you are in for a treat. A favorite product of mine! I’ve also heard really good things about this eye cream for multiple Magpies.
