the memorial day sales that are actually worth your time

Because your inbox is probably as insane as mine this morning, I thought we could all use a cheat sheet. And so, your Great Big List of all of the Memorial Day sales worth mentioning is right here, but I’m starting it off with my faves – aka, the ones I’ll actually be shopping and which you might not have heard about yet.

Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale: True, it’s no Anniversary Sale. But there are still some serious 40% off steals that are worthy of consideration. Exhibit A: this Vince silk maxi, which I’ve had my eye on for months. Wouldn’t it be lovely at a casual summer wedding?

Bloomingdale’s: I’ll almost never say this, but I think the Bloomingdale’s sale is better than the Nordstrom sale this weekend. Take 20% – 70% off a whole slew of goodies, plus get an extra 20% off w/code SPRING20. Oh, and score a $50 gift card for every $200 you spend. Excellent excuse to refresh your denim situation, I think.

Alberto Fermani: I’m such a fan of this under-the-radar shoe designer, and his pieces almost never go on sale, so 40% off sitewide is BIG news. You could nab a new pair of sandals for the summer, but if it were me (which it probably will be), I’d treat myself to a luxe pair of ankle boots.

Barneys Warehouse: This is like a sale on top of a sale – everything’s already marked down from the original retail, but you get to take an additional 40% – 50% off sitewide this weekend. Deals abound, but I’m a particularly big fan of this little Proenza haircalf number.

The Outnet: More sale-on-sale action – an extra 30-50% off the lowest-marked price, to be specific. Can I really be expected to resist an additional 50% off an already-reduced-by-50% price on the most perfect ladylike incarnation of a biker jacket in history? Or the most perfect cashmere travel cardigan for under $100? Not. Likely.

Anya Hindmarch: Just about everything from the spring collection is marked down 40%, including my adorable little Maxi Zip, which I absolutely could not love more.

Serena & Lily: Sitewide deals don’t come around often at S&L, but take 20% off sitewide this weekend. Use code ALLOUT to nab, say, a more attractive place to store all of those flip-flops collecting by your front door.

Grayling Jewelry: Couldn’t be a bigger fan of this line, and not just because the designer’s a dear friend. Take 25% off all of her signature convertible styles w/code TRAVEL, and take all of the effort out of packing accessories for your summer travels (I rarely leave for a weekend without this one).

And then of course, there are the usual big dog suspects:

  • Anthropologie: Extra 20% off sale items w/code GONEFISHING.
  • ASOS: 20% off sitewide w/code LONGWKND.
  • Banana Republic: 40% off sitewide (including the new Marissa Webb-designed goodies) w/code BRSUMMER.
  • BaubleBar: 20% off 1 item + free shipping w/code MEMORIAL20. MEMORIAL25 gets you 25% off 3 and MEMORIAL30 gets you 30% off 4 or more.
  • Club Monaco: Additional 30% off sale items w/code MEMORIALDAY.
  • DVF: Additional 30% off all sale items w/code SUMMER30.
  • Equipment: Additional 20% off all sale items w/code MD2015.
  • Gap: 40% off regular price styles (including my new favorite jeans…) w/code SUMMER.
  • J.Crew: 30% off sitewide w/code SUMMER.
  • Joe’s Jeans: 25% off sitewide w/code HONOR.
  • Joie: Additional 20% off sale items w/code MD2015.

Phew! Exhausted already. What will you be shopping for, friends?

editor’s picks: nordstrom anniversary sale 2014

nordstrom-anniversary-sale-designer
{Editor’s Note: What in the world is this Anniversary Sale I keep going on about? Every July, Nordstrom strikes deals with dozens of designers to pre-release a few special pieces from their fall collections (occasionally exclusives), and marks them down by 33%. Prices go back up 8/4, and the best picks sell out fast (in other words: buy now, filter later). Today is the first day of Early Access, which you can participate in if you have a Nordstrom card. If not, hold out until 7/18, when the fun officially begins.}

It’s here, friends: Early Access for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts now! As always, I’m sharing my picks of the best (and the worst) from the Sale – time to start shopping!

the sale addict’s dilemma (also, eileen fisher tees on sale!)

eileen fisher u neck linen tee

I’m sitting here knee-deep in my own neuroses, so I thought I’d let you tag along. If nothing else, it’s proof that you’re not the craziest person you know, which can be incredibly gratifying.

Longtime readers will remember a certain Eileen Fisher linen tee for which I fell madly, deeply, head over heels in love. So much so, in fact, that I’m even beginning not to see its flaws (just one flaw, really, which pretty much boils down to the $128 pricetag). It’s light, drapes perfectly, breathes, hides lumps and bumps…it’s literally the only shirt I want to wear when it’s monstrously hot outside. And I was thinking yesterday – hey, I should buy one of these in black or navy, since I wear it so much. Money well spent, right?

So, I started my usual online hunt, thinking I might track one down on sale. Which I did! $66, plus an additional 25% off, in fact (seriously, if you’re in the market, move fast). Total SMC victory, right? Except – Read on
