I am going to be honest… I am very impressed with this year’s Memorial Day sales. It feels like everything is on sale, and the deals are actually substantial and things you actually want and need. It almost feels like Black Friday? I have spent a big part of this week going through every sale to edit it down to what I think is a very good list… so many great things on sale!
The 13 Best Memorial Day Weekend Sales
Violet Grey only does sales twice a year and right now, most things are 20% off. My picks: Augustinus Bader the Rich Cream (fav fav fav), the new Augustinus Bader Soothing Cream (huge fan), and of course, my beloved Westman Atelier Cream blush in Petal (the perfect rosy pink!). I ordered the cream blush in Minette, a fun coral shade that looks perfect for summer. I also ordered a couple of these liners… they were excluded from the sale but back when I was doing the podcast, Becca raved and raved about them so I have been curious!
Madewell is doing 25% off sitewide with code LONGWEEKEND ! I had been waiting for this sale and bought a few things, starting with this little black dress (the back is SO good. Oh and if you do not already own a courier shirt, you must. It is my favorite easy summer shirt. I actually ordered a second one in a medium (I already have a small) for a slouchier fit. I also bought these pretty pull on shorts, this green & white stripe tee, and these sporty stripes.
Other things I love: this pretty white midi dress, this block print dress, these woven leather slides, this smocked dress, this woven leather tote, this pretty beach towel. Oh and these cut-offs!
Sephora is running their Memorial Day Sale from today 5/27 – 5/30, with so many products up to 50% off. My pick would be the Isle of Paradise self-tanning drops… my favorite! Three other things I really like: these Pat McGrath lip gloss duo, this Otherland candle (smells so good!), and this Anastasia Brow gel (I like that it temporarily tints my brows just one shade darker).
Amazon has a lot of great deals but the thing that caught my eye was Airpods! The original classic, the Pro (this is what I have, I LOVE the noise cancellation feature), and then the Max, which I have been thinking of getting for travel.
Nordstrom is doing their big half yearly sale through 6/6. There is a lot to discuss. This beautiful leather bucket bag is 30% off. I love this one as well. There are a lot of great beauty deals too, including a markdown of my beloved Bobbi Brown shadow sticks. Other favorites: the braided Dolce Vita sandals that everyone loves (these are always a best-seller when I post them and yes- they’re comfortable!), this cozy pullover, and this super cute puff sleeve blouse.
The big news is that my coffee machine is on sale. It is still wildly expensive, but it is the absolute BEST. (Read my review with more info!) If you’ve been thinking about getting one, it’s almost $400 off through 5/30. Also on sale: this pretty little Chloe bag, this snow cone maker (so tempting, my niece would lose it!), this cute dress, really nice steak knives.
Great Jones has such great kitchen and baking wares and the whole site is 25% off with code MDW25 through Monday 5/30. I have and love this gold dutch oven and this cobalt blue baking sheet. The colors are so good and the quality is fantastic.
I almost didn’t include J.Crew as they are pretty much always having a sale (lol) but there are a lot of cute things I am eyeing! Use code SUMMER to get 30% off sitewide plus an extra 50% off sale styles. I’ve been coveting these fisherman block heels for a while now, same with this pretty ruffle dress. This yellow sarong is gorgeous (comes in tons of other colors if yellow isn’t your thing!), I’m deeply into these pink sunglasses, and I love this striped beach shirt as a coverup. And I love this striped one piece!
The best blankets! Chappywrap is running 20% off select blankets (there are some really good styles included) with code summerfun .
Rebecca Taylor is running an extra 25% off sale styles with code LONGWKND – so many pretty pieces! I love this pretty floral midi dress, this white blouse, this floaty tunic (all three colors are beautiful!), and this blazer.
Holst + Lee
Holst + Lee is doing 25% off all earrings! Discount will automatically be applied in cart. I have so many favorite earrings from Holst + Lee… my green aventurine mushrooms, the happiest popsicles, my trusty tigers, these bright flowers… I could go on!
Mignonne Gavigan is one of my favs for jewelry and her sale is not to be missed! Take an extra 30% off any of these styles with code LONGWKND – Some items are already on sale (like my favorite dangly coral earrings), so the savings is even greater!
Kassatex is offering 25% off orders of $150 or more with code SUNDAZE. Valid through 5/30 at 11:59pm. Kassatex makes my favorite robe (I got the white with tan piping and a red monogram), and I love love love the scalloped towels they made in collaboration with Chairish. Also, the bath mat!

Love your weekly blog for the variety you offer. I enjoy reading about what you wore for the week and your book recommendations. I appreciated this week’s blog especially how it relates to all the awful things that have been happening in the US and around the world and how we are all affected by these events. I’m sorry you were sick and impressed that you ‘soldiered’ on.
