Meghan Markle’s Go-to Mall Brand Dropped the Best Early Black Friday Sale

I was attempting to postpone my late-fall/early-winter shopping until Black Friday weekend. But then the weather turned cooler, and one of Meghan Markle's favourite mall brands announced a large discount, so I figured, why not.

J.Crew is currently offering 40% off hundreds of fall-appropriate apparel, shoes, and accessories as part of their Friends and Family Event, which runs through November 9. To get the discount, simply sign up for their reward programme and apply the code FAMILY at checkout. 

Red sweaters are having a moment right now, being worn by everyone from Jennifer Lawrence to Emily Ratajkowski, so get this cherry red turtleneck while it's only $59. This 100% cotton jumper is a true classic, with ribbed accents at the sleeves, collar and hem and a relaxed shape that customers adore.

With the proper pair of pumps, it's sensual, classy, and ideal for any holiday party. Customers have dubbed it "the perfect winter skirt," saying that the "timeless staple" looks "amazing with a beautiful jumper, a great pair of boots and gorgeous jewellery."

Without the extra layer of sweat-inducing leather around your leg, you get the same elegant look peeking out from under your favourite pair of jeans. These pointed-toe suede shoes are "absolutely gorgeous" and wide-calf comfortable, according to J.Crew consumers. 

The reality is that if you want a beautiful winter coat that will endure for years, you'll have to either rummage through vintage stores or pay. And, as someone who prefers the latter, I'm eyeing the Palais Topcoat while it's still in my price range.
