Black Friday Deals – 2017

November 24, 2017

I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving yesterday!

Craig, Cullen, and I ran the Turkey Trot 5K together. I wasn’t feeling up to racing, and this is one of the few times we could all run together, so why not! It was bitter cold, but we still had fun. After the race, I ran 6 miles back home for a total of 9 for the day.

Afterwards we had a Thanksgiving meal at my in-law’s, played Apples to Apples, and then FaceTimed with my family in Minnesota.

If you are involved with retail, you know the importance of this weekend. If you are a consumer, you know the great deals that is offering. I am a part of both, so in some ways I am feeling overwhelmed with the weekend because I am working at the store Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, but I also want to do all the shopping! Because holy cow–there are so many good deals out there!

These are some of my favorite stores and some awesome deals that you don’t want to miss out on.


Rabbit running is a fairly new running clothing company, but they make some really nice pieces of running clothing. Today only they are offering 30% off everything with the code GIVETHANKS. I have their Catch Me If You Can shorts, which are really comfortable.



Over the last few months, I have been doing A LOT more shopping online at Nordstrom. You can’t beat their free shipping and free returns! And that’s free shipping on ANY amount–even to Alaska, which isn’t the case for a lot of stores.

Here are some items that are on sale that either I own or have on my own wish list.


If you have been thinking about trying Beautycounter, this is your chance to snag some killer deals.

Here are the two items that are worth adding to your cleansing and makeup routine:

Cleansing Balm ($38 US)

The mini Cleansing Balm (one of our best sellers) is great for cleansing, removing makeup, and a way to add moisture to your dry, winter skin. The regular-sized Cleansing Balm is $80, so this is a great chance to try an amazing product at a lower price-point.

Lash Power Duo ($20 US)

This package includes a mini volumizing mascara and travel-sized eye makeup remover. The reformulated mascara is awesome, and I have heard nothing but amazing things about the makeup remover as well.

In addition, you get FREE SHIPPING on orders over $100 through Sunday.

And with a purchase over $250, you get a FREE Beautycounter+ Spa Set ($88 value) through Sunday as well.

I really, really like Loft clothes. We don’t have a store in Anchorage, but I’ve purchased things online before and loved everything I got. Right now they are having 50% off with the code FRIYAY. I found some things that would be fun items for holiday parties and great casual items as well.


Sarah Marie Design Studio

You probably remember my Sarah Marie Design Studio sweatshirt I just featured. Use the code: BLACKFRIDAY2017 for 20% off items on her site.


J.Crew & J.Crew Factory

J.Crew never used to have sales like this, but they currently have 40% off your purchase with the code THANKU, and J.Crew Factory has 50%-60% off everything. They sell such staple items that never go out of style: chambray tops, wool skirts, nice jackets, and fun pajamas.

SFH (Stronger Faster Healthier)

I’ve used SFH’s protein powders in the past and recommend them for “clean” protein powders with minimal ingredients. They are offering 20% off their products sitewide and free shipping.



Another store offering 50% off + free shipping! You can’t go wrong with deals like this!


In addition, here are a few more:

Zoya // A natural nail polish and safer formula. 50% off and free shipping

Patagonia Quilt Pullover // 30% off – I just mentioned wanting this top in a recent post!

Sorel // 25% off sitewide – I got these boots in the mail yesterday and am excited to try them out.

I’m off to work at the store now. It was an early morning with a 5 mile run, getting ready, and finishing up this post, but I love everything I do!

    1. Hi Michelle,
      Wondering was size your “run fast, life is short” sweatshirt is? We are about the same size. Thanks!

      1. small! I was debating about the xs, but I’m glad I stuck with the small. 🙂

        1. Oh thanks! I went with the xs, but I’m going to see if she can change it for me now:) your size looks perfect!,
