Memorial Day Sale! Sale! Sale!

I can’t believe Memorial Day is already here again.  And while the meaning of the day often gets lost in our commerce driven society, there are usually a TON of great sales that happen on Memorial Day.  But first things first.  Thank you to our service men and women, from the civil war right on up to the the current wars we wage.  As far as reasons for war, some agree and some disagree, but still there are members of our society that choose to wage battle on behalf of the rest of us, to protect our freedoms.  And for that, we thank them.

And because of those freedoms we have a capitalist economy that thrives on stuff, and a lot of it is on sale this weekend!  Let’s take a look at what’s going on, and make a pick from each sale…


Lands’ End & Lands’ End Canvas – 30% off entire order plus free shipping

Pretty tank at a VERY pretty price

This tank, the Eyelet Panel Tank from Lands’ End Canvas, is at an insane price this weekend; $8.39.  There are some incredible deals to be had from the Lands’ End brands.  Codes and pins are different between the sites though, so make sure you use the correct ones.  For Lands’ End use promo code FLAG and pin 1122 at checkout for discount and free shipping.    At Lands’ End Canvas, use code HONOR and pin 4288.   If you like the brand, this is the weekend to buy.  And if you’ve never tried them?  This is a great weekend to take your first dip. Memorial Day Event – Up to 50% off select styles

Like Crocs for grownups

No word on when this sale actually ends, or if the shoe’s marked down will stay at clearance prices.  The nice thing about Endless, like Zappos, is that they ship and return free.  These Melissa Lady Dragon Slingback Pumps are funky, but I’m liking the funk they bring.  It looks like they’re constructed from one single piece of rubber.  Made in Brasil, and the red are marked down from $175.95 to $64.76.


Macy’s Memorial Day Sale – Extra 10% to 15% off on select items with code MEMDAY

It's neither teeny nor yellow, but it's got the polka dots

Macy’s Memorial Day Sale is pretty standard.  The above suite, DKNY Over The Shoulder Dot Print Shirred Side One Piece, is marked down to $67.99 from $90, but take the additional 15% off and it falls to $57.79.  Not bad for a cute designer suit. – 20% off Sale Styles and Free Shipping with code WEEKENDER

Contrasting stripes save this skirt

If these stripes went continuously horizontal there might not be hope for this skirt.  But with the vertical stripes on the sides, a very flattering silhouette is created.  With the promo code shown below the Stripecast Skirt comes down to $52.  This weekend is offering 20% off sale styles and free shipping with code WEEKENDER applied at checkout.  Looking for more stripes?  Click here.


DSW – A “Sandal Explosion” in Clearance

Coconuts at a nutty price

Really, “explosion” is what my email from DSW says.  These $90 Coconuts Sophee Wedge Sandal were just marked down to $39.94.  Super cute wedge for the summer.  And shipping is free with code SHIPR as long as you’re a DSW rewards member, which is very easy to sign up for, and is free.


Last Call – 30% off entire purchase (excludes spot on clearance)

Little black...lace...dress

This dress, Marc New York by Andrew Marc Lace Ruched-Waist Dress, is the perfect type of dress to have on standby in your closet.  It’ll work for formal nights out, a last minute date, funeral (hated to go there).  Great styling and detail.  Started at $168, but with the sale comes to $104.30.  Shipping should be free with code LCMAY75.


GUESS – Sale items an additional 40% off

Mega color blocking

Sizes will be hit and miss in this sale.  For example, this Judy Short Sleeve Top is only left in XS and M.  Still, a very pretty top that started at $69 and is now marked down to $32.99.  You might have to dig, but if you’re a Guess fan you’ll probably find something worth it.


GAP – Up to 40% off select styles

Stock up on basics

Looking for some basics?  GAP might be a good place to stock up this weekend.  The above Striped V-Neck Pocket T is marked down from $19.95 to $10.  Not bad.

Well, I could be here all night sifting through all the sales, but I have to cut it off.  Summer is unofficially starting, I need to get outside!
