On Black Friday, Cyber Monday (and beyond), we encourage you to treat yourself. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up our favorite millennial brands and found out what the best deals they’re offering right now.
1. Sunglass Hut
You can let Gen Z have the mixers and docks. When it comes to shades, we millennials still love Versaces and Tom Fords. And the place to go for designer sunglasses? Sunglass Hut.

2. Calvin Klein
Maybe it’s because we grew up watching those famous commercials Shatter shields We see nothing comes between her and Calvin, but we love anything emblazoned with CK. It’s a brand that has grown with us, and we love it on denim, bras, and everything in between.
This iconic fashion brand is offering 50% off apparel, 30% off lingerie and accessories (excluding sale and final sale items), and an extra 60% off sale and final sale items, through November 27.
You also get free shipping on orders of $75 or more.
3. Bath and Body Works
Tell me the scent of Cucumber Melon or Sun Ripened Raspberry wasn’t part of your childhood and I’ll call your trick. Now, in our 30s, we still love Bath and Body Works just as much as we always did, except these days, we stock up on their home fragrance products.
Whether you want to freshen yourself up with a body spray or two, or stock up on homemade fragrance refills, Bath and Body Works always comes up with good deals.
And good it is! Drumroll, please…. You can buy 3 items and get 3 free from the entire store.
This happens Thursday, November 24th and Friday, November 25th Just. Stores are closed on Thanksgiving, so you’ll have to shop online.
You can mix and match literally everything in the store. It’s simple: pick 6 (or 12, 18, or 24…) things you like and you’ll get half of them for free.
Another brand we grew up with (it’s been around since the 19th century!), we buy Jockey for a wide selection of bras, underwear, pajamas, and sleepwear. And our men love items like their dry-fitting underwear and camisoles, which is why they’re perfect for gift-giving, too.
Jockey is offering flash deals (some starting as low as $3.99!) on certain items, like below, that are a huge retail discount!
Jockey® Sherpa Hooded Sweater
Jockey® French Terry Jogger
Jockey Eco • Seamless rib bikini

The latter gives you the opportunity to renew your seasonal sportswear wardrobe with a discount of up to 60%! They include all categories, from leggings to bras, swimwear and other clothing staples.
6. Lululemon Studio Mirror
Speaking of Lululemon, if you’ve been considering this huge home gym item (and a new fitness routine for the New Year), now’s the time to act. The Studio Mirror is offered at $745, which is over 50% off the original lululemon Studio Mirror price of $1495!
This influencer-favorite sports brand has a deal you won’t want to miss. If the $75 price tag was too much for you in the past, the brand’s popular and original Ultimate style is now just $45.
Or you can use this opportunity to get some new sports bras and toss all those worn and torn ones. Other items are 50% off, and email and SMS subscribers get an additional 20% off using special codes.
We know all the memes are about us… If you wear platform sandals, you should be using night cream. If you recognize a file Backstreet Boys In the photo, you should be using the night cream. Listen, we use night cream! And we seriously do not look at our age. But I digress.
