Black Friday will soon be here…rest up so that you can take advantage of the deals and bargains for your holiday shopping. While much of the focus will be on big-ticket items like electronics, you can also score some great deals in the beauty aisle!

If you’re in a department store on Black Friday, keep your eyes peeled for The Coach for Estée Lauder purchase-with-purchase promotion for Holiday 2010.  Pick up this gorgeous signature Coach (yes, COACH!) cosmetic bag filled with goodies, while supplies last, for $35.00 (a $210.00 value) with any Estée Lauder fragrance purchase.  Different department stores will have different shades of the bag–red for Macy’s, silver for Nordstrom and Dillards, gold for Bloomingdales, BonTon Belk and starting Friday.  You’ll have to check with your local counter to see if you can pre-order.  Who wouldn’t want this set under the tree?!?
