Memorial Day weekend is finally here, and the sales just keep rolling in. We’ve found over 70 great deals at more than 30 of our favorite retailers, including discounted quick-drying bath towels, under-$300 Le Creuset cookware, half-off linen bedding, and lots of things to get you ready for your next beach hangout or backyard barbecue. You’ll find all of the holiday’s best sales below, though we’ve also rounded up our favorite retailer-specific deals at Dermstore, Glossier, Nordstrom, Parachute, and Outdoor Voices. And if you want even more to keep you busy, you can always sign up for our newsletter.
It’s not technically a Memorial Day sale, but Amazon just discounted a bunch of home essentials — including small appliances, lawn-care items, and outdoor décor — to help you gear up for the long weekend.
An easy-to-care-for table-size starter plant for those with (or without) a green thumb.
If you (or a friend) plan on doing some light renovating this summer, DTC paint brand Backdrop — which our friends at the Cut once called the Brooklinen of paint — is offering 20 percent off all gift cards through Monday, May 30. The discount automatically applies at checkout.
Over at Best Buy, you can find deals on appliances, speakers, tablets, headphones, video games, and more.
Bose’s QuietComfort 35 noise-canceling headphones are a favorite of David Sedaris, our columnist Chris Black, and Amazon reviewers. The newer version, the QuietComfort 45, offers surround-sound audio and an extra four hours of playing time.
All of Brooklinen’s offerings — from lightweight-linen quilts to crisp cotton sheets — are 15 percent off through the long weekend.
Caraa doesn’t often hold sales, but now through May 30, you can take up to 45 percent off select totes, backpacks, and diaper bags.
Katheryn Thayer, Kickstarter’s brand content director, says Caraa’s studio bag is a must if you love to work out before (or after) work. It has “a million secret pockets, adjustable straps that convert to a backpack or over-the-shoulder weekender, and a big, cushiony pouch for my laptop. Plus, it zips fully closed,” she says.
Designed to clip onto a stroller or backpack, this insulated bag fits two narrow bottles with an ice pack or two wide bottles by themselves.
Pet food and accessories from brands like Frisco, Iams, and Petmate are up to 30 percent off through May 30, plus all orders over $49 ship for free.
No dog will be able to resist a game of fetch (or tug-of-war) with this durable ball.
Through Monday, save up to 70 percent on bags, clothing, and accessories at the Coach Outlet. Plus select sale items are an extra 15 percent off with the code SUMMER15.
This structured leather bag has a detachable strap that adjusts for either shoulder or cross-body wear.
All towels, bedding, blankets, and apparel are 20 percent off as part of Coyuchi’s Sunnier Days Event.
Jenefer Palmer, founder and formulator of OSEA skin care, told us that while she has many bathrobes in rotation, the Coyuchi Solstice robe is the one she wears most. It’s breathable and easy to launder, and because it’s designed to fall above the knee, those on the shorter side won’t end up swimming in it.
Dame makes some of our favorite high-design sex toys that look nice enough to leave out on a nightstand. With the code VIBEWELL, orders over $50 will be marked down 15 percent.
If your medicine cabinet could use a bit of a refresh, almost everything is 20 percent off at Dermstore’s Summer Sale with code SUN. Plus members earn double points on select brands.
EltaMD’s dermatologist-favorite (and rarely on-sale) UV Clear sunscreen is now included in the sale — no code required. It offers both physical and chemical protection, has lots of antioxidants to protect from free radicals, and doesn’t dry with a greasy white tinge.
Strategist beauty contributor Rio Viera-Newton swears by the COSRX Snail Mucin Essence, which she calls one of the best healing, moisturizing, and brightening essences on the market. It works for a range of skin issues — from dullness to dryness to acne — and is made up mostly of snail mucin (that’s snail secretions), which is known to help repair and hydrate skin.
Over at Everlane, take 25 percent off select full-price styles through Monday. Plus, the brand just restocked its sale section.
Layer this stretchy crop top — made from durable, machine-washable silk — over a tee on cooler days.
Sizing is limited, but here’s an excellent deal on a breezy cotton dress that’s both office and beach appropriate.
At just $10, it would cost you about the same to tie-dye a tank yourself (but there’s no guarantee it’ll look this good).
At Food52, select cutlery, cookware, bakeware, and even pool and picnic gear are more than half off for the long weekend.
Here’s a waterproof picnic blanket for when you inevitably encounter wet grass at your park hang. It folds up into a handy tote bag for easy carrying.
These adult-size pool floats are made from BPA-free and recyclable PVC plastic.
Select clothing, footwear, and accessories from Copenhagen-based label Ganni are up to 40 percent off. Some styles are final sale, so make sure to double check your size at checkout.
These rubber clogs will be impervious to mysterious summer puddles.
An ultra-flattering balloon-sleeve blouse for your next brunch date.
With code FOG22, take 20 percent off (almost) everything at the Friends of Glossier Sale. (It’s the brand’s only sale of the season, so if you don’t stock up now, you’ll have to wait until Black Friday.)
Glossier’s Cloud Paint blush — another favorite of Rio’s — is one of those multitasking beauty products that work for just about everyone because there are very few ways to mess it up. The gel-cream consistency makes it easy to achieve a soft, diffused wash of color, and unlike lots of other cream formulas, it actually stays on.
Golde is taking 15 percent off sitewide — including its matcha, which is rarely ever on sale.
Former Strategist intern Aisha Rickford describes Golde’s matcha as “bright, vibrant, and rich,” adding that it’s flavorful enough to drink on its own or mixed into a latte.
DTC darling Great Jones – the maker of some of our favorite cookware — hardly ever offers sales, but now, through the end of the month, it’s offering 25 percent off sitewide with code MDW25. (For the record, that’s the biggest discount we’ve seen since January.)
Whether you’re baking cookies or roasting mixed root vegetables, you’re going to need a solid sheet pan. “The Great Jones Holy Sheet is a great addition for a budding home baker,” says chef Lani Halliday. “It’s sturdy and thick, and you can depend on it to stay nice and flat while affording you an even bake.”
The brand’s Strategist-tested Dutch oven, the Dutchess, is another foolproof pick. “The oval shape means there’s a lot of surface area to cook on, which would be great for big batches or stews,” writes Strategist editor Maxine Builder. She calls the gray interior “tastefully different” and a smarter, more stain-resistant choice than Le Creuset’s white one.
If you have a little one to shop for, Hanna Andersson is offering up to 50 percent off pajamas, swimsuits, onesies, and more through May 31.
This caterpillar-print onesie is sure to be a hit at your next baby shower.
As would this cheery sunblock swimsuit made from recycled nylon. Because it’s durable and fade-resistant, it’ll last much longer than a growing toddler can fit it.
Take up to 50 percent off clothing, gear, home décor, and more. Note that standard shipping is just $5.
Over at J.Crew, you can take up to 50 percent off your purchase — including swimwear and sale styles — with code SUMMER.
After your swim, slip on this breezy linen cami. It’s still in stock in white, teal, black, and the flax shown.
Sustainable-underwear label Knickey is offering 20 percent off sitewide with the code MDW2022.
Everything (yes, everything) is 25 percent off at Madewell through May 30 with code LONGWEEKEND.
So many mattresses are on sale that we rounded them all up here.
Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale is back, and thousands of items — from portable speakers to Hydro Flask water bottles to UGG slippers — are up to 65 percent off. There’s a lot to sort through, so you can find our favorites from the sale here.
It’s not every day we find Skims bras on sale — let alone a bralette that’s still in stock in most sizes.
It’s not exactly shearling-slipper season, but you’ll be glad to have these UGG slides on hand once the temperature drops (or when the air-conditioning gets too intense).
Several Strategist staffers (myself included) rely on Hydro Flask water bottles to keep their drinks cool all day. “It’s my favorite water bottle to bring on long car rides, where I don’t want my water bottle to get baked and weight isn’t a primary concern,” says Strategist editor Maxine Builder. This one has a straw lid, which I prefer, as I have a tendency to baptize myself with the wide mouth.
Outdoor Voices’ OV Extra Sale is back on for the long weekend. Take up to 50 percent off shorts, sports bras, leggings, and dozens of other sweat-wicking offerings.
This compressive cami top is ideal for low-impact workouts like pilates and yoga.
The brand’s best-selling Zoom leggings — still in stock in sizes XS to XL — are now under $50 and hardly ever go on sale.
We’ve been singing the praises of Parachute’s sheets and bathrobes for years, and now you can get (practically) everything for 20 percent off through May 30. Two of our favorites from the sale are below, but you can shop the rest of our top picks here.
Not many robes can have had a waiting list nearly 2,000 people long, but this Turkish-cotton one did — and it was named the best less-expensive option in our Best in Class review. A favorite of many Strategist readers, this not-too-thick but very warm robe has been a best seller multiple times.
Everything from camping gear to gymwear is up to 30 percent off at REI’s Anniversary Sale now through May 30. Members can also save 20 percent on one full-price item and an extra 20 percent on one REI Outlet item with code ANNIV22. (And orders over $50 ship for free.)
Running coach Francisco Balagtas told us he runs “fast and slow, long and far, and everything in between” — and that he does it all in Hoka One One running shoes, which almost never go on sale. “Being so light, they’re great for doing faster workouts, but they have enough cushion to go longer and slower as well,” he says.
This vintage-inspired lawn chair is made from soft, woven polyester that doesn’t stick or pinch. Plus it has backpack straps for easy carrying.
Makeup from brands including Fenty, Bite, and KVD Beauty is 50 percent off through Monday. Don’t forget to use the code FREESHIP for — you guessed it — free shipping.
If you’re looking to swap out your full-coverage foundation for something lighter this summer, Fenty Beauty’s Pro Filt’r Hydrating Longwear Foundation offers buildable, medium coverage and a hydrating, natural finish.
Take up to 50 percent off hundreds of items from some of the best kitchen brands, including All-Clad, Staub, Le Creuset, and Zwilling.
Just the right size for desserts and sides.
And for after the meal, here’s a deeply discounted set of double-walled espresso glasses.
When grilling season ends, this steel basket will still double as a strainer.
Now through May 30, select best-selling styles are 20 percent as part of Uniqlo’s Arigato event.
We’ve long been fans of Uniqlo’s cotton tees, which are breathable, durable, and hold their shape even after dozens of washes.
Whether you plan to wear them for running or relaxing, these six-inch bike shorts are made from breathable, sweat-wicking fabric that’ll keep you both cool and dry this summer. Plus, they have a hidden back pocket.
Select full-price summer styles are 50 percent off through the long weekend. Plus, you can take an extra 40 percent off already on-sale items.
Still in stock in 11 colors and most sizes, you can get three of these cotton tees for the price of one.
