The Best Of The Labor Day Sales

Oh hey, and welcome! If you’re looking for our Guide To The Labor Day Sales, head over to our current page — freshly updated for 2020. You’re welcome to keep reading here, though, if you want.

School may have started, and I may or may not have thought longingly about wool sweaters and hot chocolate recently (NO!  take it back!) but….if there’s one thing I know, it’s this: these 90-degree temps aren’t leaving just because August is.

This is, of course, how I justify my labor day spending spree.  Think of all the money I’m saving for next year, Mike!!  And – as a bonus —  I’ll still get a ton of use out of it now.  Right, Mike?  

He remains unconvinced, but I am resolute.  And here is why…

The Best of The Labor Day Sales

MWAH HA HA says the shopping enabler.  You are no match for me.  MIKE.

Anthropologie – Top Picks

Take an extra 20% off all sale styles!  This sale is rather annoying to shop, simply because there are soooo many products will only a single size left.  The best thing to do is to go here and filter on your size.  That said, there’s a ton of good stuff, too.  Here are my favorites:



Hey friends. It’s Laura. This might possibly be my favorite little sale boutique of all time…I mean…a rainbow dress, a green rocker sweatshirt, a shiny gold purse, two killer jackets AND leather-like sweatpants?? Let’s just say Bloomie’s is apparently speaking my language right now. Be sure to sign up for a Loyalist account to take advantage of free shipping!


J. Crew

Hey, lovelies, Tiarra here! The only thing better than a holiday sale is one that doubles up on regular price AND sale items. I mean, c’mon! I’m not sure if I’m more excited about all the velvet pieces or FINALLY finding a leopard print skirt, but I’ve got it all here for you.



Hey! Cams here. Of course, I gotta cover my favorite denim brand. Everything is 30% off through Labor Day Weekend…and FREE SHIPPING. The picks from the sale (below) are my favorite styles – ones I own and wear all of the time. I also included additional pairs that I’ve had my eye on. Now is a great time to stock-up on jeans for the upcoming Fall + Winter.

LOFT – 40% Off with Code LABORDAY

Laura again, y’all. We all love LOFT for their pretty prints and great sales. They do not disappoint this weekend, either! Snag those plaid pants (either pair) and those camo jeans…and any of the pretty blouses. I’m LOVING the white floral one with the great deep yellow and pale pink!!


Hey Gang – S here.  Madewell just added a bunch of new pieces to their sale section, and I was happy to find a bunch of pieces I’ve been eyeing all summer.  Many would transition effortlessly to Fall, too.


If you think you’re seeing a ton of stuff that was also part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale…you are correct.  Think of it as a second chance for The Ones That Got Away.  This sale selection was so good, I kiiiinda went nuts.  (S here, in case you couldn’t tell.)





Skirts, Pants, Jeans, and Shorts

Rebecca Minkoff

Julieta here!!! I’m a Rebecca Minkoff addict. All my bags are from her and it didn’t help that this year I got to meet her in person. This weekend you can get things up to 60% off. Lots of Julian backpacks and more handbags. I love their shoes and dresses too. Check my picks below!



This is my latest obsession.  I literally want ALL THE THINGS.  I wore a couple of these dresses in Greece this past summer, and they’re so chic, comfortable and…machine washable.  Amazing.  Unless otherwise noted, size up – they run a bit small.



Let’s not forget that this beauty giant is having one of their Beauty insider sales.  This sale is so big (and so rare) that we covered it separately.  Check out A Makeup Artist’s Top 25 From The Sephora Sale….as well as  What Our Editors Are Actually Buying at the Sephora sale.


Heya, Tiarra, again. Shopbop’s sale section is up to 70% off and I was pleasantly surprised to see a good bit of transitional pieces included. I found leopard, jewel tones, and a few not-so-basic basics. It’s all about the balance, right? Everything I found was still stocked in most, if not all, sizes, so hop to it!


Hey Gang – S here.  Splendid has 25% off store-wide (including the sale items).  There’s a few summer staples (like the Splendid X Missoni dress I have and love) but I’m reallllly excited about a few of their Fall pieces.  Like these:
