Hello and welcome back. Hopefully everyone celebrating Thanksgiving enjoyed a pleasant holiday. Today we offer our annual after-Thanksgiving shopping post, focused on discounts at retailers Kate patronizes, and/or on items she has worn.

Black Friday continues to evolve, and its popularity in the UK seems to be diminishing. This is from trade publication Business of Fashion

 Two years after British shoppers fought with bare hands for Black Friday bargains, the nation is starting to turn its back on the American holiday tradition.

Major retailers such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc.’s Asda and Next Plc are steering clear of the event completely, while others such as J Sainsbury Plc’s Argos are spreading offers over a longer period as Britons tire of standing in line for discounts on a day they would normally be working.

In the United States the popularity of online shopping continues to grow on Black Friday as business at mortar stores declines. It’s not to say stores weren’t busy, for they were. But percentage-wise, the growth is online. More from Reuters:

Crowds were thin at U.S. malls and stores on Black Friday morning, formerly the traditional start of the holiday shopping season, and online channels were expected to show the strongest gains in sales over last year.

Store traffic is likely to fall 3 to 4 percent this year on Black Friday but will be offset by a 20 percent growth in customer traffic online…

Now to our list of Sales and Savings this holiday weekend. 

LK BENNETT: We begin with offers from LK Bennett on both sides of the pond. Everything online at the US site is 30% off for orders totaling more than $250. At the LK Bennett UK/INTL site there is a 20% discount on everything, with no minimum purchase requirement

  1. Many congratulations on such an epic post — plus comprehensive updates! Something for everyone there.

    I love those new coats from Beulah — such clean simplicity. Unfortunately I see they too have succumbed to yet more of the floral prints which fashion dictates right now. In Beulah’s case I fear the addition of little gathered bell sleeves is all too likely to attract Kate while remaining too fussy for me.

  2. I know Kate has shopped for George at the Gap and I believe she’s bought some things from there, as well. They have an excellent sale through tomorrow, 50% off everything. Use the code CYBMON.

  3. Susan, what an amazing amount of work you put into this! Thank you for all you do.

  4. Great post! Thank you! So glad that many of the sales go through the weekend!

    Has anyone bought the Sebagos? I’ve been eyeing them for some time but I am so unsure of the sizing. The reviews are very mixed with only 70% saying they fit true to size. Curious if anyone in this *group* has any input?!

    • Are you on Facebook? If so, you might ask on the WKW page, people are generally pretty good about responding to that kind of thing. People here have always been very good here about answering that sort of question. :)

    • I have them and had to buy up a size because I procrastinated for too long and missed out on my size. When they arrived I was annoyed as they seemed too big, but once I wore them out and my feet warmed up they are fine. I could prob go down to my normal size but they are fine enough without an insole, and they certainly don’t fall off.

    • I bought them in a 7.5 (my normal size), but found that they were cut too high for my ankles and so were rubbing. So I returned the 7.5 and bought an 8, then put a full insole in them to raise my foot a bit and provide some extra arch support. Now they are perfect and if I bought them again, I would do the same.

    • Hi!

      I have had two pairs (the first pair I wore out!) and I love them! I wear either an 8.5 or a 9 US and the 8.5 is perfect. It might feel a hair snug the first time you wear them but they do stretch a little.

  5. Thanks for doing all that research. I had actually forgotten that Kate has worn some of these brands!

    • I am always surprised when doing one of these posts, invariably stopping at some point and saying “And this brand is on the list because…..?!” :)

  6. Mega awesome post! How do you find all of these promos?
