5 Things to Know about Black Friday at the Florida Mall


Today I was invited to a blogging/technology lunch with some other bloggers and the marketing folks at the Florida Mall. We talked about the upcoming holiday events at the mall and enjoyed some tasty lunch from Buca de Beppo!

Here are 5 things you need to know about Black Friday at the Florida Mall:

1. Approximately 50 stores will be opening at midnight on Black Friday. Night owls rejoice!
2. They are expecting 100,000 guests. Pack a snack and be ready to shop, shop, shop.
3.  Lanvin hits H&M on November 20th. Check out this FabSugar feature to see pictures from the line.
4. There are a bunch of new stores at the mall to check out including Charming Charlie (affordable accessories), A'Gaci (a Forever 21 type), and Cotton On (an Australian brand that reminds me of American Eagle).
5. Finally, check out these apps to help with your Black Friday shopping:


  1. No way, there are Cotton On's here in the US?? I shopped that place to death when I studied abroad in Australia and I haven't see it since!!

  2. Great tips! I also have a local Central Florida blog on fashion and design:
    I would love to find out more information about local fashion bloggers!

  3. Sara, the Cotton store looked really cute! I'm def planning to check it out.

    Giselle, I am an Orlando blogger and know lots of others. Shoot me an email if you're interested in attending one of our meet-ups!

  4. Great Post.

  5. I was so nice to finally meet you in person J and once again, thanks for the invitation :) Hugs!

  6. Hey, didn't realize you were in Orlando. Did you got to the FL Mall to get the H&M Lanvin? I wanted to but didn't make it.
    Please check out my blog, I'm in Central Florida as well.

  7. Magpie, feel free to shoot me an email too! I was at the FL Mall on Saturday and saw a few pieces in the store but honestly I'm really not into the whole Lanvin thing. I would never spend $200 on an H&M dress, don't care who designed it, LOL!!
