Another week closer to Halloween, another week avoiding spending money on a costume. If you needed to distract yourself from horny hauntings and what spooky antics celebs are up to right now, there’s a genuinely good deal of retailers throwing pre–Black Friday sales to keep you occupied.

From fashion to beauty, these are the clearance sales worth your perusal.

Best Fashion Sales

Outdoor Voices

You don’t really need us to convince you to shop Outdoor Voices’ Halloween sale, but the brand did just relaunch its best-selling one-shoulder dress. The style has been updated to be more supportive and now includes a handy inner-shorts liner for more coverage. If tenniscore isn’t your style, there’s plenty more up for grabs at 25 percent. Shop the sale from October 28 through October 31 — just be sure to use the code HALLOWEEN25 at checkout.

Beyond Yoga

If you haven’t tried Beyond Yoga’s signature Spacedye, your skin, quite frankly, hasn’t lived. The material is ridiculously soft, wards off chafing, and comes in sweet colors, like this purple dahlia. Our pick from Beyond Yoga’s massive sale section is this sports brameets tank top, which of course comes with matching biker shorts that are also on sale.

Universal Standard

Universal Standard just launched its annual Denim Drive, so for the next ten days, customers can score markdowns on a plethora of jeans — plus an additional $25 off your next four orders (total of $100 off) if you donate your pre-loved denim in exchange for a fresh pair. We love these dark wash jeans complete with a pre-cuffed cuff that come in Universal Standard’s trademark 00 to 40 sizing.

The Outnet

The Outnet’s clearance sale is still going strong, as evidenced by this silk midi at 85 percent off. Top it with a chunky sweater, oversize blazer, or the matching top in the set. If Rag & Bone isn’t your thing, there’s also Marni, Proenza Schouler, Ganni, and so much more up for grabs. No code is necessary, but some financial restraint probably is.


Bloomingdale’s isn’t staying behind with its fall sales. Until October 30, they are offering up to 65 percent off current styles. We are partial to this blazer, which will be a key layering piece come winter.

Best Beauty Sales


Sephora decided to drop its Holiday Savings Event about a month early. You can save up to 20 percent on makeup, skin care, hair tools, and more with the code SAVINGS (but you’ll want to check on your Beauty Insider status so you know exactly what kind of discounts you’ll score). At the top of our list is Shiseido’s editor-loved sunscreen, which is lightweight and dewy — and happens to be bundled with an adorable mini-version right now.


It’s not often that you’ll get discounts on universally loved makeup staples, but leave it to Nordstrom to discount its trusted array of goods for the plebes. Our pick from the brand’s pre–Black Friday “Limited Time Sale” is this undisputed queen of concealers from Nars.


NuFACE Mini Starter Kit
From $207
From $207

We are once again asking you to consider the NuFACE — this time via Skinstore’s modest fall sale. For an undetermined amount of time, Skinstore is offering 15 percent off select items (that’s everything on this page) with the code SS15. Go on, electrocute your face in the name of wrinkle prevention.

Best Lifestyle Sales


Caraway is making a strong case as the internet’s newest favorite cookware brand. First came the miniature collection, then the tea kettle, and now comes a food storage set that’ll not only keep your meal prep fresh but comes with a set of organizers to keep things tidy. You can save about 25 percent on the set right now with no code necessary.

West Elm

On the topic of organization, prepare your kitchen for seasonal hibernation with West Elm’s pre–Black Friday sale. You can get these stoneware kitchen canisters on clearance for as low as $20 (depending on the size), but don’t sleep on the rest of the sale either. Everything from furniture to bedding to mirrors is on sale for up to 60 percent off.
