{UPDATED!} My Top Memorial Day Weekend Sale Picks

Greetings and cheers to a long weekend!🍸 Memorial Day Weekend sales are in full swing, and of course, I’ve got a full roundup for you!

I was up bright and early this Monday morning making some updates and new additions, so be sure to take a look even if you already saw this post over the weekend. Also, don’t miss my Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale Picks and my favorites from the Victoria Emerson Sale!

While we enjoy our picnics and barbecues this weekend, and 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 sight of that in all the noise of the holiday weekend, but I don’t ever want to take it for granted.

But somewhere along the way, MDW came to mark the unofficial beginning of summer, and many retailers take this opportunity to run their biggest sales of the season. Rather than a long list of sales, I decided to create a curated list of my top ten picks. I hope it’s helpful if you’re shopping this weekend!

A Few New Additions from Evereve:

#1. 525 Cotton Cable V-Neck Pullover ($148.00 $43.99 // My favorite summer sweater — perfect for throwing on with shorts for an evening on the beach, or pair it with jeans when vacationing in a cooler climate. I’m wearing a small, for reference.

#2. Sundry Saturday Skirt $68.00 $43.99 // When you don’t feel like wearing shorts, this casual knit skirt with the drawstring waist and curved hemline is my go-to. I wear the size 2, for reference. (Size Chart: 0 = XS, 1 = S, 2 = M, 3 = L, 4 = XL) It’s also on sale in the black.

#3. Sundry Zip Up Hoodie $148.00 $59.99 // This beachy zip-up hoodie is the perfect casual-cool layering piece for mild summer evenings. The colorful tabs on the drawstrings are such a fun detail, and the soft terry fabric is light and comfortable. (Size Chart: 0 = XS, 1 = S, 2 = M, 3 = L, 4 = XL)

#4. Marrakech Lange Jacket $158.00 $95.99 // This is a great little topper to level up your casual outfits. The fabric is super soft and comfortable, and the moto jacket styling lends a subtle edgy vibe. I take the small, for reference.

#5. 525 Blouson Sleeve Raglan Pullover $138.00 $87.99 // The perfect date night sweater with feminine pointelle knit sleeves, a shaker style knit bodice, and a flattering a v-neckline. This one runs true to size; I have it in the small.

Okay, so here are my original top ten MDW sale picks, and I just added on a few more to the end. Plus, I updated a few incorrect links. Sorry for the confusion!

My Top MDW Sale Picks {Updated 5/30/22}

#1. Lou & Grey Signaturesoft V-Neck Pocket Dress (50% off with code SUMMER) // This is pretty much the perfect casual t-shirt dress for summer, although it’s more of a lightweight sweatshirt material. Whatever you call it, it’s so very soft and comfortable, and it comes in 4 colors. It runs true to size; I’m in the small.

If you like the Signaturesoft dress, you might also like this Lou & Grey Signaturesoft V-Neck Romper, which is also 50% off at LOFT. In fact, you may want to check out the whole Signaturesoft collection!

#2. Plunge Tankini Top  + Full Printed Bikini Bottom ($10 off + 20% off) // Athleta swimwear rarely goes on sale, so this is the time to grab some! It’s all marked $10 off + 20% off (final discount applied in cart).

I just got this set, and I really like it. It’s so nice to be able to wear regular swimsuit brands again, although I still need the D-DD cup. (Here’s the link to the A-C cup, for those who need that.) They also have a High Waisted version of the swim bottoms, if you prefer. And since everything is on sale, I just ordered the Tidal Skirt and Plunge Tankini in solid black to try.

#3. Athleta Pranayama Wrap (20% off in cart) // My favorite summer wrap is included in Athleta’s 20% off sale. This is perfect for travel, and for throwing on over your pajamas in the mornings. It’s true to size; I take the small.

I also love their Momentum Tank for summer running and gym workouts, which I’m also wearing in the picture above, and their Cloudlight Stratus Tee for a longer, more relaxed fit.

#4. Sam Edelman Naomi Sandals (30% off select colors, including this Pewter) // These sandals are so comfortable, and they have pretty good support for those with finicky feet. They run true to size; I have them in the 8.

#5. Joe’s Jeans Frayed Denim Shorts (now 40% off!) // If I had one pair of denim shorts in my closet, it would be these. They have a versatile 5″ inseam, and they’re sewn at the sides so the cuffs stay put. They’re true to size, or size up if in between.

Prefer a shorter inseam?

These Joe’s Ozzie 4″ Cutoffs are really good too, and 40% off at Bloomingdale’s. I have them in the Dusk to Dawn (shown above) and Alma.

#6. Soma Cool Nights Rib Lace Cami & Shorts Pajama Set ($70.00 $29.99) // These pajamas are my favorites for summertime (I have 3 pairs!) and this price is about as low as they go. I find they run pretty true to size; I wear the small, but you could size up if you like your pajamas extra roomy.

#7. Kendra Scott Clove Necklace + Paxton Hoop Earrings (20% off 1 or 25% off 2 or more) // This is one of my favorite earring and necklace pairings. They’re delicate but substantial enough to be seen, and they work well together or you can mix and match with other pieces in your jewelry wardrobe. I also love the Ryder Hoops, for a larger pair of earrings.

#8. Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm (25% off  with code MEMORIAL25) // When my favorite cleansing balm goes 25% off, I always buy the largest size to have as backup. These also make nice gifts.

#9. Brooks Chaser Running Shorts ($54.00 $40.52) + Brooks Ghost Running Shoes ($130.00 $109.95) // My favorite running shorts and shoes are on sale at Zappos this weekend, and I just ordered a new pair of each. These shorts run a little small; I wear them in the medium, and they also come in a 5″ length, for those who prefer.

The Brooks Ghost is my favorite running shoe, although I recently purchased the Hoka Mach 4, which I also like a lot. (And they’re also on sale!) The Brooks are true to size for running shoes, meaning I size up to a 9, but I ended up with an 8.5 in the Hoka.

#10. Hat Attack Luxe Stripe Tote $152.00 $106.40 + Madewell Packable Straw Hat $39.50 $29.63// I love this luxe beach tote, and it can also double as a carryall on vacation. It folds flat in your suitcase, but it expands to hold a ton for a day at the beach.

#11. Vuori Clean Elevation Legging ($89 $62 ) // My favorite workout leggings are on sale! The camo color is almost sold out, but I love that Brick Heather, and it’s fully stocked. And speaking of Brick Heather, the Vuori Performance Joggers are also on sale in that color way. I take a medium in Vuori leggings and joggers, for size reference.

#12. BECCA Beach Date High Neck Dress Cover-Up (25% off select colors) // My favorite swim coverup, casual and cute, and the high neck provides some sun protection.

#13. LOFT Fresh Cut Denim Roll Shorts In Light Indigo Wash ($56 $29 with code SUMMER) // I just got these shorts at LOFT last weekend, and they’re really comfortable and cute. I love this super light wash. They’re true to size (I have the 28.) The bracelet I’m wearing here is on sale as well, and this tee is not on sale, but super cute if you like a graphic tee.

#14. LOFT Striped Sweater Tank (40% off) + LOFT Monroe Chino Shorts ($49.50 $29) // For a pair of classic non-denim shorts, these are a nice choice. They’re true to size for LOFT; I’m wearing the 6. The sweater is also cute, but it runs a little small; I’m wearing the small, but I might prefer the medium.

  1. I’m still waiting for my Joe’s Fray denim shorts to be delivered. I got mine 30% off, so 40% is even better. Does Nordstrom do a price adjustment over the phone? I live 1 1/2 hrs. away to go get one? I hope they get here soon, so if I need a different size, the sizes are still available to order. I ordered 2 sizes….my regular and one size down and I see you recommend reg. or size up. I also need new P.J. shorts sets, so going to be looking at Soma and also have been wanting to try the Athleta wrap. Do you think I’d order the XS in the wrap if 5’3″ about 120lbs.? Thanks for the work you put into picking out the great finds on the sales. It really helps. I’ll check back later if you add anything. I’m excited for you to get to order new swimsuits.

    1. Hey Kathy, they will do a price adjustment online. Log into your Nordstrom account, find your order, and there is a button to click to Request Price Adjustment. And I would definitely get the XS in the Pranayama Wrap, if you’re 5’3″ and 120#.

      1. Oh thank you for your reply. How do I get the new receipt for when I return the size that doesn’t fit me or both if I make the adjustment? Sorry, I don’t know how the adjustments work.

  2. Thanks for mentioning the true meaning of Memorial Day, Jo-Lynne. I feel that many people forget and think it’s all about barbecues.

  3. Just ordered the Soma pj set! Thanks Jolynne for the post! And Happy Memorial Day to you & your family. 🇺🇸

  4. Love your posts.
    I have a problem hope you can help.
    I purchased a black pair of AG jeans. I cant get them to stop bleeding. I’ve washed them and even gave them a salt bath a friend told me about but every time I wear them my hands turn black where I’ve touched them. Any ideas would be greatly appriciated!
    Thank you

    1. Yep, my AG black jeans did that too. It did eventually settle down some but they still did it, even after numerous washings. That said, they never faded and always looked new. I just learned to be careful. It always washed right off my hands. The main thing is, I would not carry light colored leather handbags when I wore them.

  5. That’s such a funky color cute tankini. I’ve gotten more fond of them (now in my 50s) than when I can remember they were “the next big design trend” in swimwear (like: back around 2003?). The fabrics are nicer now where the tanktop doesn’t look like you’re wearing a curtain draped over your midsection, lol! I think they are a better age-appropriate option a lot of times vs. a onepiece because, they don’t feel like your torso and bust are going to spill out of the neckline and armholes whenever you move (especially if you’re on the curvier side).

  6. You look great in the very pretty striped top and shorts from Loft. Well, I ordered the pj set from Soma and the final sale price came up to $14.99 and I ordered the Sam Edelman sandals in Natural Sun with crossed fingers that they have enough arch support for me. If they fit, they will be perfect to wear with all of my summer dresses. Thanks to Tania Stephens I ordered three Caslon tops from Nordstrom, one of them is marked down below $8.00! This is a day that we do need to pause, remember, and thank all of those that made the ultimate sacrifice for America.

  7. Question about the Madewell packable hat from Zappos – how did you actually pack it? Fold? squish? or??
