2023 Holiday Sales Favorites

Last updated on November 26th, 2023 at 09:00 am

Once again, Black Friday sales are starting earlier and earlier with each year, with several brands already fully live! However, I personally don’t mind some of these longer sales – as they reduce my urge to “panic spend”, allowing me to take my time on which purchases I truly want to make.

I’ve listed some of my favorite retailers below, and will continue updating this post as more sales come out. Happy (thoughtful) shopping!

Last updated: Sunday, November 26

P.S Don’t forget to check each retailer on Rakuten to stack cash back in addition to savings. If you’re new to Rakuten, you can use my referral link here and you’ll receive an additional $40 cash back once you spend $40.

Some favorites currently on Rakuten: Rothy’s, Kotn, Boden, Outdoor Voices, Girlfriend Collective, Amour Vert, and Farm Rio.

Health & Beauty

  • Stratia Skin
    • 20% off sitewide through 11/27 with promo code SHOPSLOW
    • Late to the train, but discovered this LA-based brand earlier this year. My favorites include the Interface cream, a more affordable version of Drunk Elephant’s Polypeptide cream, and Lipid Gold, a skin barrier repairing cream that pairs perfectly with my t-ret routine (and stopped my flaking!).


  • Elizabeth Suzann
    • Bundle & Save: 15% off 2 items, 20% off 3 items, 30% off 4 items
    • Save on classic ES pieces like the Georgia Tee and Florence Pant in linen and washable silk
  • Lisa Says Gah
    • 25% off sitewide
    • San Francisco-founded brand focused on small, local production with natural and recycled materials. Love the colorfully printed Robyn jeans (I’ve rented a few via Nuuly). If you’re in LA or San Francisco, check out their brick and mortar locations!
  • Find Me Now
    • 35% off sitewide
    • WOC-owned NYC brand focused on responsible production through small-batches and recycled or deadstock materials. Love their checkered Harmony line – I have this button down which gets compliments all the time, and this LBD is perfect for holiday festivities.
  • Everlane
  • Girlfriend Collective
  • Amour Vert
    • Buy one get one 50% off (aka 25% off two)
    • Another SF local brand with a focus on ethical, local production. Their new recycled cashmere sweaters look incredibly luxe, and I’m tempted by this cozy cable stitched sweater after I accidentally shrunk my last one :’( (it was previously made in wool).
  • Outdoor Voices
    • 40% off sitewide with code HOLIDAY2023
    • Their CloudKnit line is very similar to Vuori’s soft material, at a lower price point. Recently, I’ve been enjoying their fun colorblock RecTrek shorts for hiking, Court Skort for pickleball, and Doing Things 2.5″ Shorts for all activities (I find they fit me better than Patagonia’s Baggies).
  • Rent the Runway
    • 30% off subscriptions and one-time rentals with code BFCM23
    • This sale is perfect for any upcoming holiday or new year festivities!

  • Retold Recycling
    • 15% off 2 or more items with BUY2GET15
    • Technically, this should be an “anti-clothing” category. By sending in your well-loved clothing, they’ll help to ensure that it stays out of landfill, with non-donatable items routed to scraps recycling. Typically, their mail-in bags cost $14.50 (shipping label is included).
  • For Days Take Back Bag
    • Get $50 (usually $20) when you turn in your bag
    • Similar to Retold, you can purchase For Days’ Take Back Bags for $20, and when you send it in with clothing for recyling, you’ll get $20 credit to use on the site. For now until the end of the year, they are running a special promo where you’ll get $50 credit instead of the usual $20!

Men’s Clothing

  • Percival
    • Sale on select styles here
    • UK-based brand with earthy-retro-prep vibes (does that make sense?), known for funky knitwear and embroidery. My husband is a fan of their sweatshirts and overshirts, which he takes true-to-size. and I’m honestly tempted to pick up this fairytale tapestry shirt myself!
  • Taylor Stitch
    • 20% off select styles + extra discounts on sale
    • Another local San Francisco-based brand, reviewed here (courtesy of my husband). He loves his classic Democratic Pants, and these wool Carnegie pants and cable sweater are perfect for winter.


  • Lo & Sons
    • Up to 50% off select styles
    • Including the classic Pearl Crossbody (I’ve had mine for 8 years now!) and the extra cute mini take on the OG bag, the Nouvelle Crossbody.
  • Songmont
    • 20% off sitewide with code BF2023
    • Great chance to snag one of my favorite bags, the Luna (reviewed here) on sale! Their Drippy collection looks really nice, especially the Large Tote giving Celine Sangle vibes.
  • Telfar
    • All bags in stock here until Monday, Nov 20 at 3pm EST! I love using my small UGG shopper during the colder months; unfortunately, the small size is sold out but its larger siblings are still in stock.
  • Rothy’s
    • Up to 30% off everything (+2% cash back through Rakuten here)
    • Including new styles like their Lug Loafers (reviewed recently here) at 15% off, The Point II at 20% off, and old favorites like the Lace-Up Sneaker (great for narrow feet) at 20% off.
  • Birdies

    • My favorites are still the classic leather Starling loafer, along with the almond-toe Blackbird slippers. You can also get $30 off your first pair of Birdies with my referral link here!


  • Brooklinen
    • 20% off sitewide
    • I’ve had their cotton sateen sheets for several years now, which are really comfortable and still holding up great. I love the look of these subway tile-inspired bath towels, and the discount applies to sale items as well – too bad this patchwork duvet cover is not in our size!
  • Parachute
    • 20% off sitewide
    • Similarly, we’ve been using their Linen Duvet Set and Brushed Cotton Sheet Set for a few years now and both have held up well and are so soft. The Brushed Cotton is especially nice during the colder months. Their newest seasonal color Evergreen has me real tempted!
  • Often Wander
    • 15% off sitewide
    • One of my favorite candle purveyors, with a store in San Diego and SF’s Mission District. Their Lavender Eucalyptus is my all-time favorite scent, and I love the fact that they have a refill program!
