A Perfect Storm of Winter Coat Savings

The temperatures this winter have been insane. If you’re in the Northeast, you have been experiencing much warmer than usual temperatures. El Nino, combined with the Arctic Oscillation holding in a lot of the pole’s cold air, have come together to make a perfect storm…for savings!

Odds are you haven’t needed to spring for a winter coat yet. That’s great news, because this time of year retailers are offering massive discounts. Winter is likely to get colder, especially at the tail end, so loading up on the savings now will keep you warm in the coming months for less.

Favorite Everyday Winter Coat

Sales are such a beautiful thing. Especially when they render savings of over 50% off. Right now, Nordstrom’s is running their Half Yearly Sale through January 3rd. That means you can score this Larry Levine Down & Feather Fill Coat with Faux Fur Trim for under $100.

Perfect for day-to-day wear, the fully-lined, down/feather mix fill coat is machine washable, making it easy to care for even after you brush up against a salt covered car in the parking lot. Its hood is removable, and despite being warm and quilted, its silhouette is still a feminine hourglass shape.

It normally retails for $210, but right now it is on sale for $99.90.

Favorite Winter Coat for Traveling

Traveling with a winter coat is often burdensome. You want to be warm, but packing a bulky coat in your suitcase takes up too much room. Wearing it on the plane means you’ll be peeling it off after takeoff, and you might not even need it if you’re headed for sunnier locales.

That’s why Tumi’s Patrol Packable Travel Puffer Jacket is our favorite pick for winter wear if you’re affected by wanderlust (or compelled into it by business trips.) It’s incredibly warm with its water-resistant shell being filled with down insulation. But at the same time, it’s surprisingly light, making it easy to lug along no matter how far and wide your travels take you.

Another bonus? It folds in on itself to become a travel pillow. That means that while you’re on the plane, instead of trying to find a place to tuck your coat away, you can fold it up so you can actually get comfortable, even if you’re riding economy. This feature also makes it easy to pack in suitcases or carry-ons.

Right now, you can get 20% off when you use Tumi Promo Codes.

Favorite Winter Coat for Athletes

Actually enjoy the cold weather? Whether you’re hitting the slopes or hopping on a snowmobile, Columbia has some of our favorite winter sportswear. Of course, it helps that they are also running their Winter Sale at the moment.

Our top Columbia pick for the winter athlete is their Women’s Bugaboo Interchange Jacket. Its breathable shell is waterproof, and its zip-in fleece liner uses thermal technology to reflect your own body heat back onto itself. You are literally keeping yourself warm. The liner and shell can be worn either together or independently of each other, giving you three winter wear options in one. As an added bonus, there’s no shortage of color options.

This coat normally goes for $175, but is currently marked down to $129.90. On top of the Winter Sale, you can save an additional 30% off select winter styles when you use promo codes through January 10th.


Regardless of your designation as an everyday, travel, or sportswear shopper, this is a great time of year to score savings on winter coats, especially since you likely haven’t needed one yet this season.
