Hello lovely ladies. Can you believe Thanksgiving is one day away? I'm so excited and hope you all are too. It also means that Black Friday is only TWO DAYS AWAY! I can't wait to shop at my favorite shops online and in store!
For this special Preppy Style series post, I will be sharing with you my favorite pieces that are on sale at all of our favorite preppy stores. If you recall, we shared our favorite 20 preppy brands with you earlier this year. We will be selecting a must-have item from each of them that you should consider for this year's Black Friday! (Note: A couple of the stores aren't having sales, so we've included only the stores that are offering discounts.)
Note: The items in this post are more expensive than what we normally post on CF. I've tried to focus on investment pieces you can get at a discount. (See: Why you should spend more for quality pieces.) As well, many of these preppy brands are higher priced to begin with, and their discounted prices reflect that.
