The Best Beauty & Fashion Deals for Columbus Day 2021

Columbus Day is a federal holiday that celebrates the anniversary of Christopher Columbus' arrival in 1492. With it, like many federal holidays, comes some great sales at some of our favorite stores.

From H&M to Nordstrom, there are bargains to be found all over the internet in time for Columbus Day.

Plus, as Christmas is not too far off, this could be a chance to buy some gifts for a fraction of the retail price.

Newsweek has broken down the best beauty and fashion buys this Columbus Day.


H&M has 20 percent off this Columbus Day, and there is not even a voucher code required to get the discount. This cream cocoon coat is a perfect pick to warm up winter days in style.

A staple store in the U.S., everyone needs to start the fall and winter seasons with a new pair of jeans. With 30 percent off and free shipping, there has never been a better time to buy those 501s missing from your wardrobe.

J Crew

J Crew has a special code—SALEONSALE—meaning you can get extra off sale items as well as 30 percent off sweaters and knits. As the cold begins to creep in, this turtleneck with supersoft yarn is a great way to stay warm.
