Nordstrom

 

Offer: Up to 50% off hundreds of selected items from top brands

Nordstrom has a number of reader favorites and top sellers that are worth grabbing right now!

If you’re looking for the ultimate tote, one of the biggest sellers during Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale was the Tumi Voyageur Everyday Tote, it has a water-resistant lining, lots of pockets to organize your items, not to mention how sturdy it is but also chic-looking! And great news, Longchamp bags are discounted 20-30%, including the Le Pliage Cuir Leather Shoulder BagLe Pliage Small Shoulder Tote, and Le Pliage Expandable Tote – this brand is a huge reader favorite for their chic, yet durable bags that are popular for travel.

For shoes, I tried out the Tory Burch Minnie Flats a while ago since many readers love them. With moderate foot cushioning and a stylish sheen, I found them comfortable to wear during flights and easy to pack – feel free to read our review!

Also, the Zella Live in Leggings are on at a great discount right now and have been voted the #1 leggings for travel because they’re so versatile and easy to wear anywhere! The top-selling Spanx Faux-Leather Leggings are on sale as well; they’re so stylish and ultra-versatile for travel – easily dress them up or down!

One coat that looks inviting is the Halogen Double Face Wool Coat, reviews say it has a flattering fit and is super warm! If you’re searching for sweaters to bundle up in, this V-Neck Nordstrom Cashmere Sweater appears versatile or if a V-neck isn’t your thing, the turtleneck looks plush and soft too!

 

Since readers have been asking, here are my Editor’s Picks! I definitely have my eye on these, or already bought a couple that are reduced right now:​

  • I bought the Bernardo Quilted Down Jacket during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and the material feels luxuriously soft while keeping me bundled up and warm. LOVE IT! $180.00 NOW $99.90
  • During the sale, I also bought the long-time reader favorites, the Tumi Carson Nylon Backpack and Tumi Voyageur Tula Nylon Crossbody Bag and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. Not only do the items look chic and sophisticated for travel but I can also use them to carry everyday baby gear, too. Carson Backpack, $395.00 NOW $275.00, Tula Crossbody, $245.00 NOW $169.00
  • A pair of combat boots are on my personal wishlist for the season, so I ordered both the Vagabond Kenova Lace Up Boot (limited sale) and the top-rated Sam Edelman Lydell Boots hoping that one of these will work. Note that these aren’t comfort shoes. $180.00 NOW $125-$126
  • Chunky soled boots are trending at the moment and these Blondo Dagger Waterproof Boots look beautiful yet rugged at the same time! They’re waterproof, uber comfy, and are a winner for the TFG community overall. $150.00 NOW $99.90

 

Winter getaway tip: If you’re heading to a sunny destination to escape the cold, the  Loveappella Maxi Dress, which is a huge reader favorite, is also currently on sale! Unlike many jersey fabrics, this one is very lightweight, which is a major plus for travel, especially for a maxi dress that has a lot of fabric. Plus, the range of lovely colors to choose from is a feast for the eyes!

Shop Anatomie

 

Anatomie


Offer: Get 30% off sitewide (extended)

 

A staple for travelers since 2006, now’s the right moment to get TFG faves at a discount, just because Anatomie can be pricier, but those who are fans, say their products are worth it!  A few of my favorites include the ultra-popular Anatomie Skyler Pants!!! Read our review to learn why these are the best travel pants for women – and they’re never priced lower than this!

And I have to admit when I discovered their Andrea Leggings, my love for them kind of eclipsed the Skyler pants. They’re the same fabric as the Skyler with stretchy fabric over the knee area AND they’re pull-up style, too. So comfortable for a flight! If you want to know more about their miracle leggings, check out our review!

One of my go-to jackets has been the Kenya Safari Jacket (go ahead and read our review of its benefits). I’ve worn it to Europe, all the way to using it as my trusty jacket for a trip to the Grand Canyon. So lightweight, comfortable, durable, with lots of pockets, and a shape that flatters the body—it’s an ideal time to grab it!

I’ve also been using the Kenya Fleece Jacket non-stop because it’s warm and has been very useful when I’ve been caught off guard with weather that’s colder than I expected. It’s sleek, looks sophisticated, I love the high collar style, and the four pockets are super convenient! 

Another TFG favorite is the Merika Windbreaker Jacket, it’s handy to whip out when drizzle starts and compresses down easily into a packing cube. You can also grab the Merika cheetah print, which is a sleek way to stay dry!

Definitely, some of the best deals can be found on Amazon and the Black Friday sales are full of TFG reader must-haves! Take the Columbia Pardon My Trench Jacket, which keeps you dry while looking stylish, and it never hurts to stock up on some shoes, especially the #1 selling sandals on the blog, the Vionic Backstrap Sandal. The adidas Advantage Sneaker and the Ecco Soft 7 Sneakers are also discounted. All of them are reader favorites and have ample cushioning and support for walking. 

Sales are also the prime time to grab bigger ticket items like luggage, and Amazon already has deals on top TFG picks like the Osprey Fairview 55L Backpack and the Delsey Paris Clavel 19″ Hardside Luggage, both well equipped for international travel. In terms of purses, a top choice for readers has been the Travelon Anti-Theft Bag, it has RFID protection, tons of organizational compartments, and is a cute accessory – ideal to take to Europe!

If you’re after a full-size luggage set, The Samsonite Omni 3-piece Hardside Suitcases are a top choice to save on for Black Friday Weekend! No matter if it’s the 21″ or 28″ suitcase, the Omni collection is a popular option with TFG Readers, especially when it’s on sale. Talk about value for money, you can get a set to share with the entire family!

If you’re in the market for headphones, the BoseSoundLink Wireless Headphones are on sale at a 22% discount, and so are the Bose QuietComfort Noise Canceling Earbuds, which are at a 29% discount! Overall, Bose is highly popular with readers because their audio products play media crisply or help block excess noise effectively during flights.

And on my Holiday Editor’s Wishlist, I have the Baggallini Avenue Tote in my shopping cart because readers have raved about this bag, singling out the organizational pockets, laptop compartment, and trolley sleeve that fits over a suitcase handle easily.

Shop Nomad Lane

 

Nomad Lane

 

Offer: $40 off every single item (discount automatically applied in cart)

 

Once I discovered the Nomad Lane Bento Bag, I’ve used it over other onboard personal items for a few reasons. I feel it’s very structured, has adequate compartments for me to fit my packing cubes and the majority of things I need, and two of my favorite features of the Bento Bag are the practical trolley sleeve, which sits perfectly on my suitcase, and in my experience, it has fit under the seat on all the planes I’ve flown, even on small domestic planes! Feel free to check out our review on this popular traveler’s bag!

Girl On The Go Insulated Trench Coat | Favorite Scoop-Neck Tank Top | Mountain Ripstop Long-Sleeve ShirtCharly Jacket | Trail Tight Leggings

 

Eddie Bauer

 

Offer: 50% off your Purchase 
Offer: Take an extra 50% off clearance
Code: THANKSGIVING50

 

Tis’ the season to stock up on items on your list—hopefully Eddie Bauer is one of them! They’ve been a reader favorite for years for producing sturdy and versatile clothing that comes in a variety of sizes. Take for example the TFG editor-approved Eddie Bauer Charly Jacket, which I discovered a while back and it’s become my jacket for rain and chilly weather due to its construction, cute style, and rain protective technology; it comes in regular, petite, tall, and plus sizes (1X). 

A surprising choice that I discovered recently is the Ripstop UPF 50 Shirt. Besides having UPF sun protection, it’s moisture-wicking so I don’t overheat, and the cut isn’t overly fitted or saggy. I’ve worn it everywhere! Another discovery for me was the Trail Tight Leggings. Since I don’t really wear leggings, I specifically bought these for hiking excursions as they are high performance because they don’t retain odors, have UPF 50, and moisture-wicking capabilities, but they’re also very comfortable and flattering!

And a continual TFG reader favorite and top seller has been the Girl on the Go Trench Coat. It’ll keep you dry (because it’s seam-sealed) and is resistant to wind, so ideal to nab while on sale!

The Julian backpacks are on sale which means you can save quite a bit with the 25% discount code!!! I first purchased the Rebecca Minkoff Julian Backpack in 2015, and it’s still one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. In fact, it’s the ONLY purse I owned for two years aside from one small cross-body bag. It was ideal for my needs, and I used it for everything. I even used it to travel for one-week luggage-free! It’s stylish, versatile, and perfect for carrying all my essentials. 

This pretty one has some lovely hardware and sleek pebbled leather and this patent leather style is edgy and fun. Do check out our review to discover why this bag works so well for travel!

In addition, if you’re looking for a crossbody, this M.A.B. Crossbody has an edgy stud design, and it could be a purse to use both at home and for travel.

Columbia

Valid: 11/21-11/30

Selected products discounted across various retailers

 

Columbia is one of the most popular travel brands with readers and the current Black Friday deal is a signal to take advantage!  

One of their consistently top-selling jackets is the Columbia Carson Pass II. It’s reliable and sturdy for winter and for those trips where there’s a distinct drop in temperature, no matter the season. If you want to read more about Columbia Carson, see our review!

If you want more jacket options, the Benton Spring Fleece is super cozy and a popular seller, along with the Switchback III and Arcadia Rain Jackets, which are both light, yet reliable options to tackle an unexpected downpour. 

You can top off your jacket finds with the highly-rated Saturday Trail Pants. In winter you could add thermals underneath, but for the summer they’re also wearable. Great for travel, as they’re water-resistant, stretchy, and have UPF 50, they come in a range of sizes (2-16) too!  

And if you’re looking for winter boots on sale, consider the reader’s favorite Ice Maiden II which are waterproof, have excellent grip, and cozy insulation. Want something higher? The Minx Midi II Boot has all the same hallmarks of weather protection and warmth. Since things like jackets and boots are pricey, it’s the right time to grab them up!

Valid: now through Nov 29

Selected products discounted across various retailers

 

I’m very brand loyal and adore Osprey’s high-quality options for luggage. The Osprey Ozone 42L/21.5″ Wheeled Luggage. It’s a must-have to travel carryon only, holds all the clothes/shoes you could need, has great organization, and is perfect for local or travels abroad! You can check out the basics of this awesome bag in our review on the previous 42L.

The Fairview 55L Backpack is my all-time favorite backpacker backpack! I used it to travel around the world long-term and it was the first time I downsized from a checked bag to a carryon. However, if you wanted something a little smaller and don’t need as much space, the Fairview 40L Backpack is an excellent compact choice, with all the same reliable features and compartments!

If you happen to be buying for the men in your life (it is that time of gift-giving), the Farpoint 36 Wheeled Carryon has a large panel opening, comfortable straps, and sturdy wheels to tackle uneven terrain.
