The Best Memorial Day Weekend Sales

UPDATED 5/29/17 with the latest sales!

Hello and Happy Memorial Day Weekend! (Can I say that? I’m never sure if Happy Memorial Day is an appropriate sentiment or an oxymoron.)

While we enjoy our picnics and barbecues this weekend, and yes maybe a little bit of online shopping, let’s take some time to remember and honor those who went before us and gave their lives to preserve our freedom and way of life. It’s so easy to lose that perspective with all the noise, and I don’t ever want to take it for granted.

Somewhere along the way, along with the patriotic parades and family picnics, this long weekend came to mark the unofficial beginning of summer, and many retailers take this opportunity to run their biggest sales of the season. Every year it seems to get more hype, and there are some amazing sales going on right now!

I’ve been sharing throughout the week on my Facebook page, but I also put together this roundup so it’s all in one place. I’ll update this post throughout the weekend as new ones crop up, but this should hit the highlights.


The Best Memorial Day Sales

ANN TAYLOR // 40% off full-price styles & 50% off 60% off sale styles with code SUMMER

ANTHROPOLOGIE // Extra 40% off (price is adjusted at checkout.)

BANANA REPUBLIC // 40% off with code BRSUMMER

BLOOMINGDALES // Save up to 60% when you take an extra 20% off select sale items with code BIGBAG plus Lloyalists get a $50 Reward Card for ever $200 you spend. (There is some good denim on sale here!)


DL1961 // 30% off full price styles with code MDW30. While AG and Paige have taken over first and second place for my favorite brands of premium denim, DL1961 is still in the top three. They’re still fabulous jeans. They have a great fit and feel, and they don’t stretch out, but I don’t find the rear view quite as flattering a my AG and Paige jeans. That said, the price point tends to be a bit lower, and 30% off is a really good markdown. Their white jeans are great, by the way, and not see through at all.


EXPRESS // Up to 50% off everything (some exclusions)

J. CREW // 30% off site wide Extra 40% off sale styles and 30% off everything else with code SWEET

  1. Enjoy our weekend with family & friends. And hope that vertigo passes quickly. I never had it but have heard its something else! If I had the figure for it, that navy blue dress from yesterday would be in my closet. What a simply stunning dress. I’m also in love with the red sleeveless top you styled as a nice Memorial Day outfit. I’ll probably pass on some online shopping, I’ve got enough clothes already but still like to look! Our little tiny community has a Memorial Day Service on Monday. Since our whole family is involved in getting ready for it, we generally don’t have much time to ourselves over the weekend. And that’s okay! The last 2 years we’ve had anywhere from 150-170 people attend! After the VFW finishes their service, we all have lunch in our church hall. Everyone attending brings some sort of covered dish. You never know what or how much food, but the Lord certainly has blessed us, as there is always plenty to go around! The service is great way to remember & honor our military, both past and present! ???????? HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY ????????

    1. That is so cool. We used to go to my husband’s hometown Memorial Day parade with his parents and I thought that was a great way to honor the day. Now we live too far away, and we’ve never found one near here.

  2. Funny, I just bought the red crochet top from Loft yesterday (40% off). Also saw some Sam Edelman sandals at tjmaxx that you’ve posted and bought those. I’ve had the same ones before. Thanks for the ideas. No more shopping for me. Enjoy your weekend!

  3. I didn’t find a link to email a private message to Jo-Lynne, so I am leaving a comment here.

    Nordstrom has the Chantelle Underwire Sports Bra on sale for $43.20 in the light grey/lipstick color. I didn’t see it online or in the store in my size, but a sales associate was able to locate three for me at other stores. I want to have some extras on hand in case this sports bra is ever discontinued. This is the only sports bra I have owned that is both comfortable and well-fitting.

    1. Thanks for that heads-up!!! (There is a contact button at the top of my blog (when on a computer – on mobile you have to click the 3 lines at the top) that links my email – but a comment always works too! 🙂
