The Scoop on Black Friday...

Happy Thanksgiving, my dears! I'm a little delirious from prepping cooking + putting together this one-stop shopping post for the best Black Friday sales, but I'm looking forward to sleeping in a little, drinking the bottle of Sancerre I found today, and eating my heart out at dinner.

So I'm not a big fan of stores being open on Thanksgiving day, but a lot of online retailers are starting their Black Friday promos today and hey, that doesn't hurt anyone (or too many people…). And you can shop on your phone under the table while your crazy aunt or uncle is going on and on at dinner. Here's a roundup of some lingerie sales (and sales on sites that sell lingerie… and also some of my favorite clothes in general), and a few choice items from each. There are some great Cyber Monday deals a-comin' too, so check back Monday morning to see what those are.

[Ed. Note: The following list has been edited to reflect latest sales & expired deals as of 11/30/14.]

20% off online (and in stores) through Monday with code GETCOZY. Love these bralets and adore the star print on all the Starry Eyed pieces. The Paloma pieces are a great choice for bridal shower gifts too, by the way. Left to right: Paloma Bralet, Starry Eyed Dolman Top, Emilia Bralet.

40% off with code BLACKFRIDAY on a selection of items ranging from slips, camis, shorts & soft bras. My favorites: The Lily Soft Bra & The Mercedes Underwire Bra.

40% off everything with code GOBBLEUP. Also, their super-cute and festive PJs are buy one get one free, and undies are 10 for $30… which is pretty insane. I love these mini-boyshorts—they're pretty similar to the lace tanga style that I loved two years ago. Check out these too: Waffle Sleep Leggings, Flannel Pajama Pants (with polar bears!), and the Skinny Joggers (I got a pair of these and have been living in them this weekend).

Pure Instinct: A Thanksgiving Day Animal Print Roundup

Happy Thanksgiving! This year I'm thankful for all of you dear readers, and for having the time this week to clean up the design of PLU a little bit. And again, thank you all for staying with me over the past two years through highs (frequent posts) and lows (not so frequent posts). I'm xcited for what's to come in the future, and I hope you are too!

Now, another thing I'm thankful for: animal prints and the variations on the animal prints. There have been so many cute lookin' animal print pieces out there lately, I had to post a roundup of my favorites. This classic Mimi Holliday set is one of my favorites (and it's on sale!), but read on to see more after the jump—and just a hint, not all of 'em are leopard!

Swim Sales Say Goodbye to Summer

Or at least that's what it feels like. It's still August but I feel like this summer has whizzed by and just slipped through my fingers. My sadness required me to mix similes. But I feel like that's what's happening when gorgeous bathing suits like this Suno Cutout One Piece go on sale. I'll cheer for the price slash but shed a tear for what this means: fall is coming.

Suno Cutout One Piece in Floral Waves, $295 - on sale for $119.50.

So, Here's Your Dose of Friday Flounce. You're Welcome.

I want to say this is kind of a continuation of yesterday's romper roundup post, but it doesn't have anything in common other than the fact that they both contain super finds from The Outnet. But anyway, here's your dose of Friday Flounce—brought to you by Jenny Packham and my love for all things Jenny Packham and also for alliteration. You're welcome. And bon week-end! xo

The Summer Playsuit Roundup / Sale Edition

One of the things I love about The Outnet is that they always have fabulous items on sale. Yes, sizing can be limited, but that's part of the fun—it's a shopping scavenger hunt. Only the clever emerge victorious. The online savvy are rewarded. You get the idea.

So when I was browsing through today and saw all these adorable playsuits, I knew I just had to dedicate a post around them. Because you know, it's still freaking 90 degrees out with 200% humidity and we still have to wear clothes, but would prefer to wear as few clothes as possible but still look cute and not trashy. Some are meant to be categorized as lingerie, and others are meant to be outerwear, but I loved the versatility of these six playsuits in particular. Enjoy, and happy size hunting!

Hump Day PIck: A Classic Silk Robe by Brulee... And a Deal!

I think robes can be tricky. Skimp on the quality of the fabric and it can look cheap. Make it too long and walking becomes shuffling. Make it too short and your fanny gets cold. So it's a good thing that BRULEE has found the perfect formula for a great, classic robe. I'm not a huge fan of giant kimono sleeves on a robe if the rest of the body is somewhat fitted, so I really love the pajama-esque sleeves on this one.

Do you love it too? Yes? YES? Well, looks like it's someone's lucky day (or week)! BRULEE is offering a whopping 50% off said robe, in all colors, so pick one: cream, black, or black with cream piping... or get 'em all. One for you, one for a friend, one for a relative... or three for you. Whatever.

So here's the scoop: BRULEE's Vamp Collection silk robe will be available on for 50% off starting on Friday May 20th through Friday, May 27th. Just use the code "bruleerobe" when you check out!

P.S. The white one would make an excellent bridal shower gift. Stock up. Just sayin'. 'Tis the season.

Vamp Collection silk robe, on sale for $135 with promotion code "bruleerobe" (reg $270). Available at

Hump Day Pick: Valentine's Day Sale Edition

If you're a regular reader, you know that Pretty Little Underthings is obsessed with Journelle. Amazing selections, chocolates & Evian in the dressing rooms, and sweet Journellettes like Mara and Valerie totally make my day. And then there's the semi-annual sale. The incredible sale that makes lingerie dreams come true, which also happens to be going on now.

So I decided to dedicate this week's Hump Day post to three amazing sale picks that are perfect for Valentine's Day—whether you have a honey or not. 

1. Fleur of England Cupped Babydoll
I'm a sucker for eyelash lace and silk that feels so smooth against the skin. The classic pattern is a glamourous alternative to modern-day babydolls and the black-and-white movie glory days when cigarettes where everywhere (but don't smoke, your lingerie will smell!), romance was mandatory, and women always wore lipstick.

Cupped Babydoll, on sale $175 (regularly $350)

2. Andres Sarda Pollock Night Dress

Stunning! It's like Marilyn Monroe meets the Black Swan and dialed down the transparency by 75%. This is a chemise to twirl and swirl in, to feel like a princess in, to love in.

Pollock Night Dress, on sale $180 (regularly $600)

3. Damaris Amoretta Bodysuit
I had to include one for the ladies who aren't the chemise type. I posted a Mimi Holliday version of this bodysuit in black as a Tempting Tuesdays post a few months ago, and this one is more hottie-hot than bisou-bisou sweet, especially in this fiery-red (almost orange) color. If you really want to spice things up, wear it under your date outfit, and watch him go up in flames as you peel off your layers. 

Amoretta Bodysuit, on sale $195 (regularly $390)

Gilt Groupe's Hanro sale ends today at noon, but you still have four hours to scoop up some silky, super-soft basics at a discount. I loved these two pieces: Satin Baby Doll Chemise and the Lace Deluxe Boyleg (how cute is that lace trim along the waist and the legs!).

SALE: Bisou Bisou Rouge Super Plunge Bra by Mimi Holliday

Oh, hello. Didn't see you there. I was too busy staring at this beautiful, delicate Mimi Holliday bra and trying to decide if I have a stance on red lingerie. Turns out, I don't. Red or not, I love the lace detailing and the way the bottom scallops would rest against the body. And let's be serious, I look good in red. I just don't wear it that often. Guess I'll have to change that!

Bisou Bisou Rouge Super Plunge Bra, $98 (sale $68.60). Available at

Hump Day Pick: Silent Robe by Zinke Intimates

I originally had planned to post a really gorgeous pair of Wundervoll bottoms that I've been staring at longingly from afar, but quite honestly, my apartment is so freakin cold these days that I can't think about exposed skin right now.

I saw this robe earlier today and all I can think of is how soft it must be and how it would help keep me warm until my landlord decides to finally turn the heat on! And looks like you can get 20% off all Zinke pieces with the code INSTYLE20, yay!

Silent Robe in Dust, $220. Available at La Mode Lingerie. Also comes in Indigo.

SALE: Understudy Bralet & Hipsters at Anthropologie

I was looking at these the other day because my cousin's bridal shower is coming up, and OMG, now they're on sale! I think these are another take on ruffle bras—gorgeous bralets that are perfect for peeking out under deep-cut shirts or cardigans. Wendy Glez's set is delicate, playful and so in-season in a rich plum color—and now even more irresistible at this price.
Understudy Bralet, $48 (on sale $19.99), Understudy Hipsters, $44 (on sale $19.95), available at

SALE: Nadia Set by Undrest

How gorgeous is this Nadia bralette and tap short set by Undrest?! I would get just the shorts if I could but they're sold out except for large sizes. So ladies, if you're a large or don't mind wearing an exceptionally fancy pair of boxers, snatch 'em up now!

SALE: Jenna Leigh for Anthropologie

I was just browsing through Anthropologie's intimates on sale and noticed that one of Jenna Leigh's Smokeblossom set is on sale! I especially love the little ruffle details on the bottoms. Don't you think the soft colors are just perfect for fall?

Bra (sale $59.95, reg $98), bottoms (sale $49.95, reg $78) available at

SALE: Lace Tuxedo Set by Undrest

Undrest is an adorable brand that makes some of the cutest sets I've seen. I usually find it at Anthropologie, but the prices for their pieces usually make me shy away. 

I just found this Lace Tuxedo set on sale online, but I wonder if it's marked down even more in-store. I'll have to stop by Anthro during my lunch break on Tuesday and see if I can find it! I love the little black bows and the velvet trim puts me in the mood for the holiday season.

Bandeau bra (sale $99.95, reg $148), bikini (sale $99.95, reg $168) available at
