If you are ambitious enough (and maybe a little bit crazy) to brave the Black Friday crowds, then I have a list of must-hit sales for you. Remember: This is a marathon, not a sprint. So wear layers, bring snacks, and stay hydrated!
Premium denim rarely goes on sale, let alone for 30 percent off. Get yours from 10 a.m.–noon while imbibing in a holiday cocktail (it’s never too early!)
1201 Lagoon Ave., Mpls., 612-825-1610
Wander next door to this trendy boutique (pictured) for the same 30 percent discount on apparel and handbags. After noon you’ll still receive 20 percent off your purchase.
1203 Lagoon Ave., Mpls., 612-338-9423
Early bird specials (5 a.m.–1 p.m.) on more than 250 top gift items, including my go-to tabeltop basics from the Martha Stewart collection (pictured).
Locations: Minneapolis, Mall of America, Rosedale, and Southdale
