It’s almost Memorial Day weekend! This calls for the smell of fresh burgers on every barbecue, a feeling of patriotism, chic swimsuits worthy of sunbathing or a dip in the pool and of course, some awesome savings! After scouring tons of sources, I found the best sales (haircare products, included!) to help you save the most money and time.
5/26-27: I updated it with even more!
Barney’s New York & Warehouse- UPDATE
You read that correctly! Barney’s New York is having a pretty eye-catching sale. This home to top-name designers has 40 percent off styles from your favorite brands, plus those for your favorite guy, nieces/nephews and home! J.Mendel, Fendi, Balmain and Saint Laurent are all included in the promotion – just keep in mind that 40 percent off a boat-load of money is still a lot of dollar signs. See every discounted item, here.
Want an even more discounted selection? Barney’s Warehouse is offering up to 60 percent off certain styles. And, cue the jaw-drop! Even white wine glasses are on sale. You may be tempted to redo your home, closet and boyfriend’s wardrobe.
For a new go-to bag, Coach is usually one of my first choices. The insanely low prices at the outlet store and classic styles make it easy to find something I can mix and match with most outfits. Want a new one for yourself? Grab up to 40 percent off certain bags as part of their summer sale.
When I was in London, one of the stores I couldn’t wait to check out was Dorothy Perkins! Its sophisticated styles make sure you look chic at work or just out on the town for budget prices. Now, it’s only gotten better! For their spring sale, the brand is offering up to 50 percent off certain items plus free shipping when you spend $50 or more. Simply, use the code “DPSHIP50.”
Forever 21 – UPDATE
Back in high school and early college, Forever 21 was my go-to spot for cheaper-priced basics, summer dresses and much more. Now, the site is giving away an extra 30 percent off sale items! Simply use the code “EXTRA30” and the deal is yours.
Can you say chic?! Henri Bendel is one of those great in-between brands for when you want something that’s close to investment piece-quality without breaking the bank. Feel free to browse everything! As part of their “countdown to summer” sale, take an extra 25 percent off both in-store and online. Plus, they have free shipping. For mid-May, it doesn’t get much better than that!
H&M – UPDATE
You know if there’s a holiday coming, H&M is sure to have a sale! And, they did not disappoint. On top of announcing their new upcoming collaboration with Kenzo (more on this soon), H&M now has Memorial Day deals on everything from womenswear to home decor starting at just $5. Also, for ladies products only, you can snag an extra 20 percent off any purchase of $60 or more made between now and May 29 (this Sunday.) Just use code “6407” at checkout. Want free shipping on all orders, instead? Use the code “6656” for that.
J.Crew & J.Crew Factory
Now this is my FAVORITE kind of sale! J.Crew has an extra 50 percent off their final sale items both in store and online! Use the code “SALESTYLES” to get this deal or an extra 30 percent off regular sale pieces.
Want to spend even less? The factory store can potentially take care of that since absolutely everything in store and online should be 50 percent off! No code needed for this one since the prices are already marked down for you.
The home of all things cute and kitsch is having another surprise sale! Just enter your email and zip code to find everything from luggage to a cute watermelon clutch for up to 75 percent off. That’s outlet-worthy savings without even needing to leave the couch.
Lord & Taylor
Looking to get a new purse or sandals for that big beach trip? This department store has up to 60 percent off your favorite styles. Plus, there’s an extra 20 percent off “almost everything”! Just use the code “MEMORIAL” at checkout or grab a savings pass here to secure this deal.
Nasty Gal – UPDATE
The #GirlBoss brand has even more for you to see! Steal every statement-worthy look you’ve been lusting over in the sale section for an extra 40 percent off. No codes, no nothing. The discount will be all set up for you at checkout. So, you could get a cute crochet cover-up for around $30, sweet Jeffery Campbell lace-up heels for about $100 and the ultimate denim dress for under $20. Love it!
I know as a 20-something on a budget, you probably feel weird going into any Neiman’s that doesn’t say Last Call or Cusp at the end of it. But, their designer sale has up to 40 percent off your favorite brand names – no code required! If you’re looking for an investment piece, this may be the time.
Have you been saving up to get that fancy new straightener or dreamed of trying out some fun hair color? The mega-store for all things haircare is breaking out a sale for one of the most patriotic holidays. When you spend $50 or more, which is very easy to do, use the code “MEMORIALBAE” to grab an extra 10 percent off. This deal also comes with free shipping so you don’t have to worry about that extra cost.
Saks Fifth Avenue – UPDATE
Looks like Saks took a tip from Barney’s. While I’m more partial to Saks Off 5th, this is still worth the time to browse. As part of their designer sale, you can snag up to 40 percent off the likes of Alexander McQueen, Alice & Olivia, Chloé and even Oscar de la Renta. I just recommend filtering for the low to high prices so you can keep a look out for outstanding deals like this one! (Otherwise, it’s easy to drop a few hundred.)
That’s it for now! Make sure to bookmark this post because I’ll be updating it as I learn about more sales. Happy shopping and more importantly, happy Memorial Day!
