Though it’s been pretty warm where I live, Memorial Day makes it feel like we’re officially turning the corner into summer. It’s a great time to shop for summer clothes with all the sales happening! That said, I still get pretty overwhelmed by all the Memorial Day sales. 😬 In case you do too, I’ve rounded up highlights from a few of my favorite stores.
One thing that really helps me navigate sales is to shop with intention. Rather than choosing from the HUGE sea of options, create an intentional list of what you need to build your summer wardrobe.
A few ways to shop intentionally:
- Download the free Summer Starter Kit Wardrobe Checklist to create a plan for your wardrobe.
- Use the list in this Summer Capsule Wardrobe
- Check my recent Summer Style Resources blog post for inspiration for your summer style.
Before you dive into sales, take a few moments to plan SOMETHING. Even if it’s just 10 minutes!
Memorial Day Sales
My highlights are in the widgets below. Swipe through each and click on a product to shop.
SIZING INFO: I’m 5’6″ and usually S/M or 6 in clothes, 8.5 to 9 in shoes. If I own or have tried an item, I note the sizing in the comments in the widget.
OLD NAVY – 40% off your purchase
Free shipping on orders $25+ and free return shipping. However, their shipping times have been VERY slow during COVID-19 (which is totally understandable–just noting it in case you are trying to order something you need quickly).
Tons of great stuff, including SOFT and STRETCHY tops, tanks, and dresses. Read my comments underneath each item to see which are soft and stretchy.
LOFT – 50% off w/ code SUMMER + extra savings
Free shipping for rewards members and on non-rewards member orders $49+, plus free return shipping for US orders!
TARGET – 20% off clothes + more savings on other items
SO many good deals on tees. Also several sandals that are fairly comfy for such a low price point! Scroll to the end of the widget for sandals.
Free shipping for most items with RedCard and free return shipping.
AMAZON – GREAT Prices on SO Many Favorites
Free 2-day shipping with Amazon Prime and free return shipping on most items.
NORDSTROM RACK – Up to 70% Off Sandals & Dresses // Big Savings on So Many Great Finds
Free shipping on orders $100+, return shipping is $5.95 flat fee for US and $10.95 for Canada.
MAURICES – 30-60% off Site Wide
Now offering free shipping during COVID-19 and $5.95 flat fee for returns (for U.S.).
I’ve been wanting to try several things from Maurices, but often hesitated due to shipping and return rates. Now that shipping is free, that gives me a nice excuse to try some items! 😛
If you’re looking for tees and tanks in comfy t-shirt materials that are elevated from a plain, basic tee, this is a great place to get them! They have lots with floral prints and eyelet details that look nice but are just as comfy as a plain tee! Ones like THIS, THIS, and THIS with more in the widget below and many more on their site.
I’m personally interested in some of their DenimFlex shorts thanks to Leslie from @oneteachersstyle (check her out on Instagram!) You know I’m a sucker for stretchy denim, so I’m looking forward to trying some! I ordered this 8″ light wash pair, this medium wash 5″ pair, and these distressed 5″ boyfriend shorts, among a few others.
NORDSTROM – Up to 60% Off Clearance
Nordstrom offers free shipping and free return shipping on all orders which is one reason I LOVE shopping there. If unsure of sizing, I order multiple sizes and return for free whatever doesn’t work. Very convenient!
ZAPPOS – SO Many $50 & Under Deals From Top Brands
Free shipping and free return shipping. Great COMFY sandals and slip-on sneakers for summer, plus Madewell tees/tanks, Levi’s shorts, and more!
