Black Friday Sales You Won’t Want to Miss

Posted on: November 24th, 2016 by Leah No Comments

I have a confession to make. I hate holiday shopping.  The long lines, abundance of shoppers, and packed parking lots instantly turns me into the Grinch.  Lucky for us, we live in the Florida Keys, far far away from those crazy shopping malls packed with overzealous holiday bargain hunters.

Our shopping options consist of beautiful boutiques expertly curated with everything on your shopping list. For a pleasant shopping experience this holiday season, take a look below at a few Florida Keys boutiques offering Black Friday and Small Business Saturday sales you won’t want to miss.

Banyan Tree Boutique in Islamorada is offering 50% off all sale clothing, jewelry and gifts.

DK’s Style Hut and DK’s Beach Boutique in Marathon will be offering 25% off everything in both stores.

D-Luxe Boutique in Islamorada is offering 25% off new arrivals and 50% off the rest of the store.

Islamorada Mercantile will be offering a sale and special deals on their colorful, easy to wear dresses and beautiful Vera Bradley Bags.

Miss Monroe Boutique and uCumbe at Village Square at Trading Post in Islamorada will be having their 3rd annual Black Friday weekend sale Friday – Sunday with 25% off everything in both stores plus door buster deals.

Wild Lily Boutique in Islamorada is having their annual tent sale on Black Friday continuing to small business Saturday with extra incentives for American Express cardholders.

Zero Dress Code Boutique in Islamorada will be offering an early bird tent sale on Black Friday starting at 8 a.m.

Once you’ve shopped at your favorite local boutiques, for Black Friday or Small Business Saturday, the next best shopping experience happens on Cyber Monday, November 28.  You can shop from your home while wearing pajamas and drinking wine.  Frankly, I don’t know of a better shopping experience than this.

Happy holiday shopping!
