I would say give it a go, you never know these things until you try. Without knowing more about your market it's hard to know whether they're going to be jaded and sick of being sold to, or whether they're open for the suggestion.
One thing to think of though: Do you think that telling people you're going to be promoting products in your emails is going to stop them reading future emails? Will it turn them off before you have a chance to convince them you're great?
Another thing: If you're providing good content, good information, if you come across as a credible and trustworthy source... Do you think your readers would be annoyed if you talked about good products in your emails? Would you yourself be annoyed?
How about if you included your little disclaimer at the bottom of emails?
Just some things to think about. I would just be a little wary of turning people off before I had a chance to prove myself. But like I said at the start... give it a go and keep an eye on your unsubscribe rate.
All the best,
