Weekly Sales Report 5.26: Memorial Day Weekend Edition!


Our long weekend has arrived! But first — we’ve gotta talk sales.

Hopefully, you’ve already caught our Memorial Day Sales Cheat Sheet. It’s one of our favorite sale posts of the year, and all the top picks are chosen by Shana. She and the team have been cranking away at that bad boy allll week. And we’ll continue to update it throughout the weekend.

And now, it’s time for our editors to show us what they’ve got. Memorial Day Weekend is a great time for sales, so you’d better believe we’re pulling out all the stops this week.

Personally, I’m snagging a new Jenni Kayne sweater (as pictured on Amy above). It’s not every day that those California-cool pieces are 20% off…

Laura’s Top Sale Picks

Hey, hey, Friday! I’m looking at a blue sky and sun this morning, and am headed out to the Oregon Coast tomorrow for the long weekend with girlfriends. It will be a nice chill change from all the birthday celebrations that have happened for my 10-year-old this month. Mama reset time. 

Jess and I are both enamored with Banana Republic’s sale this weekend. GORGEOUS pieces for 40% off like these wide-leg linen pants (with a matching tank too). Everlane also has a bunch on sale for up to 30% off, and it has added more since yesterday, including the softest crossover sandals in a pale pink, oooh. Lastly, my beloved Boden swimsuits are on sale for the lowest I’ve seen. The Kefalonia is lifting, supportive and so cute! Check out the paisley print!

Everlane Box Shirt (S) | Organic Canvas Weekender

ONE: This Everlane Box Shirt is one of the best button-ups I own. Not only is it soft yet structured, but it’s also breezy and doesn’t gape at the buttons like so many shirts I’ve tried over the years. It’s not too boxy to wear under jackets too though. It’s so fab. TTS.

TWO: The Organic Canvas Weekender is my new go-to bag and on sale now! It’s huge but easy to carry, has structure, and looks so freaking cute with all outfits. It would be perfect for weekends, the beach, the pool, everyday errands. I was so pleasantly surprised when I ordered it recently, it’d be cute for try-ons but I’d probably return it…nope. It’s mine forever.


Linzi’s Top Sale Picks

Happy Long Weekend! I did ALL my sale shopping last night….the deals I shop for Memorial Day started early and stock looks good, good, GOOD this year. So, now I’m ready to play! We’re still working out our last-minute plans for the weekend, but my hope is that there’s an outdoor happy hour involved for the hubs and I, and that both of my kiddos get to play in SOME type of water. Fingers crossed.

Parachute sheets | duvet insert | beach pants (S) | shirt (MP)

ONE: Everything Parachute. Like many of us, this is the time of year when I shop anything Parachute that I “need.” The Venice Set in linen is my favorite (AND my husband’s, who hates expensive things but loves these). This year, though, I’m splurging and upgrading to the heavier-weight, all-season duvet insert that Shana has in Vermont. It’s DREAMY, and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since I visited her.

TWO: Found my new airy beach pants (on sale for under $50). I’m keeping them in both the black and white (I’m wearing a size small).  My linen button-up (size M petite) is on sale as well. The Birks and swimsuit aren’t on sale, but both are worth the splurge of full price, for SURE! 


Scotti’s Top Sale Picks

Happy Memorial Day weekend, everyone! I hope you all have something fabulous to look forward to this weekend, whether it’s a fun party or just a really good book. I myself am looking forward to watching the reunion of “Vanderpump Rules”…because IYKYK. It’s totally my guilty pleasure, and this past season has been one omg moment after another. Um, and how fabulous was Ariana’s dress?? (It was actually a cropped jacket and skirt, but…she wore it WELL.)

In other news, the sales are ridiculously good this weekend. One of my favorites is the big Solo Stove sale (we have one at home and one up at camp — they’re that good), and of course, Colleen Rothschild’s $25 off $100 or $50 off $150 sale. I always reorder my favorites (the Sheer Renewal Cream and the Glycolic Acid Peel Pads are both great for summer) during the sale. Enjoy the weekend, you guys!

ONE: These Bose Bluetooth sunglasses are one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I wear them while running (so I can still hear some noise around me), in the car, talking on the phone…all. The. Time. The sound is awesome (and can be turned up or down by swiping the side) and a charge takes no time at all. LOVE. (And they’re $100 off right now!)

TEO: Forgive the horrible picture, but the Good American jeans I’m obsessed with because of the ridiculously flattering butt pockets are 25% off right now with code MAY25 (and Nordstrom usually price matches!).


Amy’s Top Sale Picks

We’re deep into “May Gray” over here in San Diego, which means the weather is cool, cloudy and oftentimes misty. It’s a fun little switch-up to a normal hot beach weekend the Midwest usually delivers this time of year, but I think I’ll still be taking my little guy to the beach all weekend anyway (if only to rock hunt and chase seagulls). That’s exactly where we’re headed once I wrap up work tasks this morning.

But the work tasks are fun right now, because it’s the mighty weekend of sales — Memorial Day! — and things are looking good. My go-to favorite jeans are 30% off in multiple washes and inseams (here’s my full review of the jeans). And that also means you can score any of them in stock over at Nordstrom on sale (including more styles, shorts, etc.) too! More of my favorite sale roundups are below. Happy weekend! Xx

sweater (L) | pants (M, T) | quilt

ONE: If you’re eyeing up anything from Jenni Kayne, right now you can use the code MDWEVENT for 20% off! Sweaters are maybe my most-worn items in my closet, and since I made the decision to buy less/save my money for high-quality investment pieces, I’ve loved my wardrobe infinitely more. This cotton-linen blend sweater is available in a caramel color, and this 100% linen crewneck would be perfect for summer weather!

TWO: I’ve tried a lot of bedding from Parachute and personally think you should save your pennies for something else — with ONE exception: this quilt. It’s the one item I wholeheartedly recommend, and my husband and I crawl into bed nearly every night commenting on how much we love it. 


Julieta’s Top Sale Picks

And we made it to Italia. We’re on the train to Venezia after two fun days in Milano, and my kids are eating all the gelato, pizza and pasta. It’s fun, so I’ll be quick. Happy Memorial Day weekend!

I’m mostly getting Levi’s jeans this weekend. The ’70s flares are AMAZING. I got a pair the day before my trip, and wow. Those and the ones in the photo below. On the more flowy, super-summery side, I’m eyeing these Open Edit drawstring pants — love the waistband. 

ONE: Levi’s Ribcage Jeans in the “In the Middle” light wash, length 29” (TTS) – I’m ordering these again today. I went into the store looking for them in a bigger size, but they didn’t have them. I dream of having these again because they’re so perfect for warmer temperatures. Lightweight, breathable and just very comfy. Go for the washes with Lyocell in the composition. 

TWO: Everlane Silky Cotton Way-Short Shirt – I brought this to Italy because it doubles as a summer jacket. I love it over a crop top or dress, but also by itself as a top. 


Jess’s Top Sales Picks

Happy Memorial Day weekend, everyone! I hope you all have something fun and relaxing planned. We’re hitting up the Fulton St. outdoor farmers market tomorrow, then Lake Michigan with our dog for the first time on Sunday. Next week, I’m heading to Florida to visit my parents, and I’m mentally trying to prepare myself for what a real summer feels like, but strangely, I’m kind of ready for sauna-like temperatures (said no Floridian ever). 

As for sales this week, there are so many good ones! I’ve been loving everything at Banana Republic lately, and now is the perfect time to scoop up some pieces while Banana’s having its 30%-off-everything sale with the code BRSUMMER. Everlane’s sale is also good right now, with up to 30% off hundreds of items. 

ONE: rag & bone Logan Distressed Wide-Leg Jeans – I love these jeans so much, and I can’t believe they’re still in stock. They’re so flattering and comfortable too.

TWO: AGOLDE Crisscross High-Waist Organic Cotton Jeans – I had to order these AGOLDE crisscross jeans when I saw them on sale at Nordstrom. AGOLDE rarely has sales anymore, so I jumped at the chance. 


Em’s Top Sale Picks

Happy Friday, friends! It’s the last Friday of the school year for us, which also means my last morning leading art in Lana’s class — until next year. Bittersweet, to be sure. But! We have good friends coming to stay with us this weekend, and we couldn’t be more excited. Lana gets to host overnight guests in her room for the first time, and she’s feeling very grown up about it. And the misty, cool weather (like Amy, our May Gray is still going strong) is just begging for some fire-pit action.

Sales! If you saw my AMA this week, you know I have a soft spot for Anthro, and its sale items are on sale — extra 40% off. The unexpected pretty details on this linen shirt paired with these moto jeans? Yes, please. Add this woven tote (50% off at J.Crew), and we’ve got an easy, summer look in the bag (literally).

These are the most comfortable sandals. I can't over-communicate how much wear these Mia platforms get.

‘Tis the season for the most comfortable sandals (we’re talking cloud-like squish) of all time to go on sale. I can’t over-communicate how much wear these get. I have the Blush, but the Sandy Brown would make for the perfect tandal.


Anne’s Top Sale Picks

This is my last week of work before my husband and I get to take a trip to the Pacific Coast and see the redwoods. I can’t wait to show my husband the Pacific Northwest. I previously lived in Seattle for six years and have never fallen out of love with the stunning green landscape. We’ll be road-tripping down Highway 101 and camping along the way. The sound of ocean waves and scent of pine needles is just what the doctor ordered.

This week has been so fun on the fashion front. I’ve taken advantage of the 30% off sale at Madewell and picked up this beautiful blue linen dress as well as these cool pleated jeans. I also shopped the Good American sale (25% off sitewide plus an extra 50% off sale) and picked up the Good Icon shorts for under $60.

ONE: I love the Good Classic Bootcut Jeans by Good American. These white jeans are just so easy to style for summer and fit me perfectly. I’m typically a size 14, but Good American offers a size 15 (between 14 and 16, which isn’t common), and size 15 fits me best.

TWO: The Trekkie Parachute Pants from Athleta are *amazing*. The lightweight material is so breezy and comfortable for summer. The drawstring waist is fantastic for pear-shaped babes because you can size up for room in the hips and thighs, and then draw the waist tighter so there’s no waist gap. Plus, vermillion is my favorite color. If bright red pants aren’t your jam, though, don’t worry — they also come in black and are 30% off right now.

Happy (unofficial) summer!!!
