Raise your hand if you don't love a good Black Friday sale. That's what I thought. Literally no one is raising their hands. Instead, get your hands on Nordstrom Rack's Black Friday Week sales event. Yes, I said week, giving you days of flash deals on your favorite brands from Levi's, Rag and Bone, Tumi, and seriously decadent designer brands. Plus, prices are already slashed on several categories, including boots, handbags, fragrances, and more. Details, plus picks from the sales, are below.
First up, let's check out Nordstrom Rack's daily deals.
It's like an advent calendar, except for apparel and accessories we'd actually use! No offense to chocolate candy advent calendars, but not at all us love cherry filling. Anyway! These flash deals are good for 24 hours and the site has helpfully added calendar reminders for you. Nordstrom Rack thinks of everything.
•Wednesday, November 27: Tumi•Thursday, November 28: Levi's
•Friday, November 29: Alo
•Saturday, November 30: Brooks
•Sunday, December 1: Hanky Panky, Good American
Here's where the deals get really good.
As both a Rag and Bone and Birkenstock stan, I am so, so thrilled about these deals. Yes, I will absolutely rock a pair of Rag and Bone skinny jeans with pink Birks and gray socks, and you can't stop me!

•Tuesday, December 3: Designer styles•Wednesday, December 4: Birkenstock, Kendra Scott Accessories

As for the rest of the deals, some of these prices are truly bonkers. Like this Ted Baker floral mini backpack, $64.57 down from $129.
Frye Carly jacket, $49.97 down from $398 at Nordstrom Rack
Yes, you read that correctly. A nearly $400 is now discounted to below $50 — an amazing 87% off. And best of all, it's still available in a full size run of XS-L. Smash that add to cart button and wear your new jacket from the desert to the concrete jungle.
Kensie Gerona Suede Stacked Heel Bootie, $29.97 down from $129 at Nordstrom Rack
This suede bootie will go the distance, from holiday get-togethers, weirdly awkward office parties, and winter dates. Wait, did I say "dates"? Sorry, I meant cuffing season warm human body interviews. This time of year, it's just nice to have someone to curl up with, even if the romance fades away by April.
Jessica Simpson Fia Jaguar Embellished Crossbody Bag, $19.97 down from $78 at Nordstrom Rack
Reader, I implore you, do not sleep on Jessica Simpson's apparel and accessories brand. There is a reason Simpson' brand was valued at $1 billion. The quality is actually there and her products are often sly dupes of pricier items. But her original designs, like this bag with its rhinestone jaguar embellishment, are just as adorable.
Natori Feathers Satin Wrap, $56.97 down from $160 at Nordstrom Rack
A satin bathrobe is something that no one needs but when you own one, you wonder how you lived without it. A few years ago I was gifted a satin bathrobe similar to this one and I felt like my life truly began the day I unwrapped it.
Current/Elliott The Wes Brushed Stripe & Leopard Knit Sweater, $69.98 down from $298 at Nordstrom Rack
The dream of the 90s is alive with this sweater, which looks like it stepped out of the Empire Records costume department. Relive your grungy youth with a mini skirt and loafers, or if you're younger, cosplay as a disaffected Gen Xer with your mom jeans and platform combat boots.
