FASHION: Yorkdale Celebrates Black Friday on November 28th (+ GIVEAWAY!)
I love to shop. But the one thing I love more than shopping itself, is scoring a good deal. As I’m sure everyone knows, there are two days where the sales are huge: Boxing Day and Black Friday. Although the latter may be borrowed from our American friends down south, we aren’t going to let them have all of the fun. We’ve partnered with Yorkdale this Black Friday to get you the latest style scoop and you could win a $50 gift card!
On November 28th, Yorkdale Shopping Centre is launching its full suite of services just in time to for the busy holiday season! This includes special shopping hours (7:00am-9:30pm on Black Friday and holiday hours will begin on Monday, November 17), Dine on 3 reservations, and the best part, the first 100 guests at Yorkdale will receive a $50 gift card (you can also win one below!). Here are a few of our favourite trends and some of the stores we will be visiting.
Forget the blacks and greys, brighten up your wardrobe with a bold punch of colour. Whether it be a belted trench, oversized cocoon coat or wrap coat, these colourful coats are sure to keep you warm all season long.
Yellow Trench, $1995, Burberry London at Holt Renfrew. Pink 3/4 Sleeve Coat, $795, Pink Tartan at Holt Renfrew. Oversized Mohair Coat, $170, Topshop at The Bay. Deep Pink Wrap Coat, $525, Ted Baker.
We may not be in the highlands but this season we’re seeing plaid everywhere. Whether it’s Buffalo Check, Tartan or Black Watch, plaid can be spotted on coats, tops, pants and accessories. You can opt for just one statement piece or mix-and-match a few.
Wool Blend Coat, $325, Wilfred at Aritzia. Red Acrylic Scarf, $90, Ted Baker. Twill and Leather Purse, $398, Kate Spade. White Plaid Blouse, $29, H&M. Black Leather Pumps with Oxblood Heel, $90, ALDO. Buffalo Check Pants, $305, Rag & Bone at Holt Renfrew.
We’re paying homage to the soldiers and taking charge with military style – without the uniform. Statement pieces combined with bold hardware create a polished utilitarian look to ensure that you’re armed and ready for the season ahead.
Oversized Chain Necklace, $340, All Saints. Leather Phone Case with Chain Strap, $60, Rudsak. Quilted Leather Jacket, $599, Danier. Knee-high Leather Boots, $395, Rudsak.
While you’re holiday shopping, you might need a quick break. You might even want to drop your coat and bags off. To recharge, just download the Yorkdale App to reserve a table in Dine on 3. Free fruit-infused water and magazines also occupy the third-level food collection, which features 19 restaurants, including four of which are fully-licensed with table service. If your bags get heavy, you’ll want to swing by the RBC Avion Holiday Boutique where you can forget about lugging your coat and bags around. Here you can find coat and parcel check, a concierge service and a VIP Lounge and Café. On Black Friday, shoppers will also receive free gift wrapping for up to three packages. Throughout the holidays, the RBC Avion Holiday Boutique services are complimentary for all RBC Avion cardholders and are available to the public for a donation to charity.
November signals the start of the holiday shopping season, especially with Black Friday on November 28th. We will be celebrating at Yorkdale, mainly by eating and shopping to our heart’s content (or until the credit cards are maxed).
