Memorial Day Sales 2024: A Cheat Sheet


Wait – it’s Memorial Day already?? The collective shock in the office when we realized how quickly it creeped up… I guess we can unofficially say that the start of summer is upon us. Warm weather, sandy feet, eating BBQ on a blanket…I’m ready.

My Top Memorial Day Sales Deals Every Year

There are always a few go-to items I stock up on every Memorial Day (or at least I wait until Memorial Day sales hit to purchase). This is a highly personal list, but below is my my Memorial Day Sales shortlist, as well as new sales that just cropped up!

  • **NEW** – Frank & Eileen, a retailer that almost never participates in sales, IS having a Memorial Day Sale! My favorite shirt is the ‘Eileen’ and I can personally recommend the blue-and-pink plaid flannel colorway. It’s…bizarrely good. I also can personally recommend their oversized button-up, too. Lastly, don’t miss their iconic linen shirtdress (also on sale in a few colors).
  • These towels from Parachute Home – I almost always have to replace a towel or two due to stains (and my refusal to use anything but environmentally friendly laundry detergent). All of our towels are from Parachute, and they’re amazing. The linen bedding is another favorite.
  • Molekule Air Purifiers – Over the years, I’ve been adding one of these to almost every room in the house. If you have allergy sufferers (hi, it’s me) they’re almost miraculous. The mini is all I really need on a per-room basis, but the pro is great for an entire floor (especially if you have a large, open floor plan, rather than a city walk-up). They also help kill viruses, too.
  • J.Crew vacation clothes for my guys – All three of my guys swear by J.Crew’s linen button-ups, as well as their short-sleeve cotton poplin shirts in fun prints. They wear them with these shorts (usually 7″ length) and that’s basically what they pack for every summer vacation. Works great for summer parties, too.
  • Rumpl Blankets & Stash Mats – We bring these lightweight, puffy blankets & waterproof mats freaking everywhere. They work just as well at the beach as they do on the grass (or even staying warm slopeside in winter). They’re machine-washable, and I never feel like we have enough. (Rumpl is a climate-neutral-certified brand too.)
  • Darn Tough Hiking Socks – They’re the best. These tree-lined ones are cute too, or this pair if you prefer a ton of cushion.
  • Thermocell Mosquito Repellant – These little containers are the only things that work (and I’m one of those people mosquitos LOVE). I bring them everywhere, and set them up around me.
  • Supergoop! sunscreen – I’ve tried so many other face sunscreens, but Supergoop’s Glow Screen and Bright Eye Mineral Cream are still my favorites. Not only are they my daily sunscreen, but I use them instead of foundation in the summer. Both products really are worth all the glowy hype. And I swear by Glowscreen body, too. It’s shimmery and perfect for vacation and I love how it makes my skin look. (I never share these with the kids, haha – this is just for mama). 20% off right now!

The Best 2024 Memorial Day Sales In Fashion, Beauty & Home

In case you missed it, I pulled together a quick try-on article of 10 pieces I’ve bought & loved during this sale period. Think: J.Crew dresses (and one really great top), a few surprises from Abercrombie (including a matching set) and some cool Adidas pieces.

If you’ve been perusing Nordstrom’s Memorial Day Sale, all of our editor’s top picks are here…and/or be sure to check out Amy’s quick try-on article of what she brought home from Nordstrom’s sale. It’s great.

Saks happens to have – ahem – a giant sale on really high-quality sexual wellness products. If interested, this one is the best. πŸ˜‰

Fashion: The Best Memorial Day Sales On Clothing, Shoes & Accessories

We're looking forward to ALL the Memorial Day sales. Some retailers we're checking out for fashion deals? Saks, Gap, Nordstrom & more.

Right now, start with Athleta: This is my favorite workout tank of all time (on sale), and this one is on sale, too (same fabric, different style). Both of these workout tanks are seriously cute on, and double as summer tops. Additionally, those Brooklyn wide-legs pants are so good – super lightweight, yet I’ve been styling them like they’re actual trousers – they look like it, too! (They were just on sale, so we have a feeling they’ll go back on sale).

Next, check out J.Crew’s swim. I’ve been wearing their string bikinis since high school(!!) and I’ve never found a better one for the price. I’ve been wearing the ‘dark evening’ stripe all weekend. Looking for a one-piece? This ‘vintage red’ polka-dot one is so flirty & cute, and I love that they brought back this cap-sleeve mom suit that looks seriously cute on.

If you’re a sucker for Ulla Johnson or Doen or – gaspMilly, the Sak’s sale is the place to go nuts.

Hoping to find summer dresses and/or matching sets on sale? Definitely check out my try-on article. J.Crew has three dresses I’m swooning over, and Abercrombie’s linen collection is GOOD. Additionally, Sak’s sale on Farm Rio dresses is tons of fun.

Home: The Best Memorial Day Sales On Decor, Kitchen Appliances, Outdoor Gear & Luggage

While I don't need much home stuff this Memorial Day, Dyson vacuums *are* on sale. See also: DICK's Sporting Goods for the outdoor gear, & Target for patio decor.

Our Place is currently 20% off for subscribers. I swear by their baking set (everything you need without being overwhelming) and am deeply curious about their multicooker. Soooo pretty (especially in comparison to my ugly InstantPot).

My Parachute towel sale is finally here! And, I’m picking up a few more Hydroflask bottles – currently on sale at Amazon. Stanleys are too big for me, and I like the lid on the Hydroflasks better.

Lastly, if you’re in the market for a new suitcase, the scuba navy set at Paravel is the most gorgeous thing I’ve seen in luggage yet, and Away is offering $50 off a bag-and-suitcase combo.

Beauty: The Best Memorial Day Sales On Hair, Makeup & Skincare

Memorial Day weekend is a great time to stock up on all your beauty essentials (skincare, makeup, hair care) from your fave retailers. Think: Nordstrom, Biossance, Supergoop!, Sephora & more.

Um. As I mentioned, there’s a big Lelo sale going on at Saks (hint: vibrators – including my personal fav). Good stuff.

Sephora also has a bunch of stuff 50% off. These filtered shower heads were JUST on sale, so hoping they go back. I’ve been thinking of getting one for Vermont – it’s supposed to help with hard (or soft) water, and reduces frizziness, etc. Anyone try them?
