Your GOACA Black Friday guide


I wasn’t going to post today, but there’s a dizzying amount going on in the world of retail currently, and it didn’t feel right not to share. First off, the Zero+Maria Cornejo sale has commenced, and there is, as always, much to love. I own and am a big fan of this blanket-stripe tweed jacket, which is now nicely marked down. Also worth knowing: over the holiday weekend, Cornejo is donating a percentage of sales to Planned Parenthood. So are a number of other female-run businesses, including Apiece Apart, Ace and Jig, Clare Vivier, and Ulla Johnson. At Net-a-Porter, they’re donating 15% of all sales of full-priced items to the White Ribbon Alliance, which provides pre-and post-natal care to women in developing nations.

  • Over at Asos, the discount is 30% off sitewide. Just type in THANKFUL30 at checkout.
  • Assouline, home of luxe coffee table books, is offering 25% off all items under $800. The code is CYBERASSOULINE.
  • Macy’s is offering 20% off everything, and a whole lot off of select other items.
  • Shopbop is doing one of their buy more, save more deals: if you spend 200+ you get 15% off; spend $500+ you get 20% off, and spend $800+ you get 25% off. Code is GOBIG16.
  • Frame Denim is also having a progressive sale: if you spend $200, you save %10; $350 saves you 15%; $500 saves you 20% off, and $750 saves you 25%.
  • At Allsaints, you can get 30% off everything by typing in CYBER at checkout.
  • French Connection is offering a whopping 40% off everything. Checkout code: F40BLF
  • There are also really good straight-up sales going on at Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Nordstrom, Forward, and Ssense.

    That Maria Cornejo blanket thang is just so freakin good! I love the orange pixel one, too (I can’t even begin to imagine how she must be feeling right now, btw).

    I *think* Rachel Comey is doing a sale deal where a percentage of proceeds are being donated someplace super deserving (I know, so specific! I swear I got an email from them the other day but can’t find it now, figures). Of course if you just want to donate money someplace there are a lot of good options, but the healers’ camp at Standing Rock needs funds – . A 20-something year old girl lost her arm the other day, so they could really use the help, even if it’s just a little sumthin’.

    All of Everlane’s profits today are going toward buying safe helmets for their workers in Vietnam who primarily commute by moped with no helmet at all.

    Thanks for the list! Although I am disappointed to see Macy’s and Nordstrom’s on the list, since they carry Trump and/or Ivanka Trump products. I’m boycotting them, as well as Amazon (which is the one that hurts the most).

  7. Dana D says:

    Oh Francie…

    Why did you have to share that Amazon carries trump sh__? God! I’m with you then, ok, no more Amazon. While not surprised, I’ll register a protest vote through the cancellation of my prime service …

    Now I’m re-thinking all of the many things I buy through my membership…(if I can’t find it elsewhere, then I don’t need it?)

    I’ve already written off Macy’s and Nordstrom and don’t shop at all on “black” friday as I find the name of the day offensive. I love, however, that so many shops are doing good by the money they make today.

  8. Dana D says:

    Just one more thing…

    I will admit that I’ve kept my head in the sand regarding all of the bad press that swirls around Amazon…

    I just didn’t want to see it because I didn’t want to give up my books and household items from Amazon. I consider myself a fairly ethical shopper, but I wasn’t willing to make the sacrifice as far as Amazon is concerned.

    So really, thank you, Francie, for pushing me to a new level. I’ve read the words of so many here who truly feel that now is the time to sacrifice and stand up in a new way. Continue to be grateful for this community…
