Yes there are Black Friday deals at Nordstrom today, and no you did not time travel to the future. When you combine the ubiquitous conversation around supply chain issues with the excitement for a lot of us to get into the holiday spirit ASAP to try to make up for some of 2020 — well you end up with tons of Black Friday deals…long before Black Friday.

It’s not an overstatement to say my inbox is a hellhole of some insane Black Friday pitches, but we only share the best ones with you.

In fact, I’ll continue sharing favorites through November 26. But I just had to start with my beloved Nordstrom. Not that they need any more of my money after my great fall/winter boot shopping spree — but they’ll probably get it anyway.

My Favorite Early Black Friday Deals at Nordstrom… just for you.
Or me. Or you can buy them for me but no pressure. 


Chunky boots for fall 2021 from Marc Fisher modernizing the Chelsea boot

Marc Fisher Chelsea Boots
(Was $199, now $99)

Are the very same wonderful, comfy, super-wearable Lug-Soled Chelsea Boots that I recently shared with you all on sale now for 50% off? Why yes! Yes they are. Grab one of 3 great colors…or two or all three. I don’t judge. Looking for more of a sneaker-bootie hybrid? I also like the Sam Edelman Lydell Mixed Media Combat boots a whole lot especially at 30% off for Black Friday. Stop me.


Early Black Friday deals: A gorgeous cashmere turtleneck sweater from Nordstrom in 12 colors

Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater in 12 colors
(Was $119, now $79.90)

As long as we’re all living the comfy clothing life, I think it’s nice to upgrade from a cozy sweater to a cozy cashmere sweater, if only for yourself. Love this brown color but the stripes are pretty fantastic, and the red is so perfect for holiday festivities, whether in-person or (still) over Zoom.

Early Black Friday deal: Stunning metallic leather tote from Kurt Geiger London

Kurt Geiger London Metallic Leather Tote
(Was $240, now $144)

If like me, you tend to dump everything you own into a bag — or walk around with a tote in case you forget reusable mini-bags on spontaneous store visits — I adore this gorgeous Italian pebbled leather four-season tote. So chic with any outfit at all.

Campo Ceramic Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser now on sale in time for holiday gifts

Campo Ceramic Ultrasonic Diffuser
(Was $97, now $58.20)

2020 was the year we went all-in on nice-smelling…everything. What a difference aromatherapy makes when you’re spending more time at home than ever. And 40% off in Nordstrom’s early Black Friday sale. Use this lovely one with my favorite essential oils from Aura Cacia.

There’s a smaller Campo Travel Diffuser as well, for under $30. Sweet.



Early Black Friday deals: Gorjana's beaded gold necklace is under $20 right now if you hurry! What a great gift

Gorjana Minimalist Beaded Necklace
(Was $55, now $19.97)

No, that price is not a typo. For under $20 I’d consider grabbing a few for gifts. This lovely, delicate, minimalist necklace from Gorjana Reidel is one you could wear every day with absolutely everything so you always feel just a little put-together. Even in yoga pants.

Early Black Friday Deal: Cole Hahn quilted down jacket

Cole Haan Hooded Down Jacket
(Was $200, now $129)

I’ve had great luck with Cole Hahn coats in the past, and if you’re in the market for a new parka that has more style than your average ski-jacket, but still feels perfectly wearable, this is a fabulous option at a great price. I like this forest color a lot as far as earlier tones go, but to dress it up a bit, the navy is stellar.


Evapolar EvaCHILL Air Cooler 40% off and fans love it! | Early Black Friday deals at Nordstrom to treat yourself

Evapolar EvaCHILL Air Cooler
(Was $99, now $59.40 — note updated link!)

Whether you sleep hot, your urban apartment has heat that’s kicked in too high too early, or you’re in hot flash territory (hugs), this popular little portable air cooler is now 40% off on sale. Fans rave. I may end up becoming one of them myself.

SMEG Mini electric tea kettle on sale early for Black Friday in 5 gorgeous colors

SMEG Mini Electric Tea Kettle
(25% off)

If you’ve been thinking about indulging in an electric tea kettle, this is a good time to grab the super popular retro-styled mini version from SMEG on sale. Black, mint, pastel blue, baby pink, or this holiday-ready red. The mini size holds 3 cups to reduce wasting water.


Natori Feathers Underwire Contour Bra on sale early for Black Friday!

Natori Feathers Underwire Contour Bra in 23 colors
(Was $68, now starting at $43.50)

Okay, I know that many of you are like NO MORE BRAS EVER WHAT ARE YOU DOING SHOWING THIS ON MY SCREEN YOU MONSTER — but bear with me a sec. Those of us D-cups and beyond don’t always have the option to fly free up top. So I gasped when I saw my all-time favorite indulgent bra is now on early Black Friday sale at Nordstrom. (At least in the lighter, more pastel colors.)

It offers the perfect amount of plunge for your v-neck tops and it’s just so pretty; and there’s something to be said for getting back to pretty lingerie if only for yourself.

I will say it’s not a “host ’em up to the sky” bra — for a little more lift, coverage and support check out the Natori Bliss Perfection Contour Bra, which is also on sale up to 40% off.

Can’t ever hurt to have one new, not-stretched-out, sexy-under-my-t-shirt bra at the ready, right?
