Pink Saturday and Black Friday!

Welcome to another addition of Pink Saturday hosted by Miss Beverly!  I sure do hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I like Thanksgiving, but honestly it's Black Friday that I really look forward to.  It's not that I'll stand in line at Walmart or anything because I really do value my life, ha!  I just love the hustle and bustle and the great deals that can be had!

Typically, my shopping partner, AKA my dd Erin, and I go shopping out-of-town at a mall we like.  However, for a variety of reasons, that just couldn't happen this year.  So, we decided to try our luck at the Midnight Madness at our local outlet mall.  We found some pink along the way of course.

The Outlet's were C.R.A.Z.Y.  The traffic was a mess, people were rude, and the lines were long. Kind of what we anticipated but maybe worse, ha, ha!

As you can tell, we started out at Old Navy for some gifts for my son.  The line was endless and we waited for an hour.  Why, I don't know! 

We hit a few other stores where the lines weren't quite so long and pick up some great deals.  But with the crowds and the waiting we didn't get as much done as we would have liked.  Next, we headed over to our local JC Penney for their 4 a.m. opening.

We did very, very well at Penney's and picked up some super deals!

 Here's my reluctant model, Erin, with some pretty pink finds!  That pink coat came home with Miss Erin.  I purchased a pretty light pink one but of course forgot to take a picture!

a random display of pink socks!

 We hit up the lovely Victoria's Secret too for some gifts for my daughters.
This pretty pink tote was free and also is going home with Erin!

Would I stay up at night again?  Probably not.  The Outlet Mall really didn't have any significant deals that you couldn't get later in the day or even throughout the Christmas Season.  Plus, the crowds and traffic were outrageous.  Worse than any other shopping day!  I must say though that the deals we scored at Penney's would not have been available later in the day, so the jury is still out on that.  I guess it depends what we need or want next year.  All in all, I sure did have fun with Erin though!  So tell me, did you shop this Black Friday?

Happy Pink Weekend!

OXOXOXOXOX,
Jacalyn

After 20 years in retail I would never go shopping on the busiest day of the year. Come to think of it, I hardly ever go shopping now! You found some great pinks. Happy Pink Saturday. Hey, I'm having a give away!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I enjoyed seeing your pinks! I have avoided the shopping and don't feel like I've really missed much. Just too old for the lines and traffic anymore!

Hi Jacalyn, you are braver than me! I used to do the Black Friday stuff, but my body doesn't allow all that fun anymore! And I don't really have anyone to go with me so I just settle for some cyber shopping!
Love all those pink...would love that pink hoodie from Old Navy!

many blessings this week,
Barb
PS thank you so much for stopping by, always so appreciated!

Nancy said...

You are so brave! But, having a dear shopping partner makes it so fun. No, I did not go out on Black Friday.

Happy Pink Saturday. Have a wonderful week.

Cat & Cricket said...

We did go out - my daughter wanted some things from Old Navy, but the lines were impossibly long!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Well...if I was going by myself I wouldn't do it but I think it would be fun to hang out with a friend or dd like you did and shop all night. My neighbor went on Saturday and said there was hardly anyone at Sam's or Walmart....amazing! Everyone was at home sleeping I guess...lol. Loved all the pink Jacalyn. HPS xoxo Lynn

Gail said...

NOPE, no BF shopping for me. You were brave, glad you did not come home empty handed.
Happy PS

I used to go every year bright and early, but not anymore. Our guys don't ask for too much, so a few gifts and the rest is cool cash.

Enjoy the season!
