The Best Labor Day Weekend Sales

Facebook Posts 1 1

Labor Day weekend has some of the best sales of the year – it's new product, it's often what you actually need, yet it's the kind of pricing usually seen when brands want to get rid of last season's merchandise.  Below I share my picks of the best Labor Day Weekend sales and some suggestions on the best buys at each retailer.  Happy shopping!

Whew!  If I missed any great sales, do share them in the comments so others can take advantage of the promotion.  And if you get any great deals this weekend, let me know!

    Hi Alison, about that zebra sweater from Banana Republic? I was one of the ones who loved the look and immediately went to Banana Republic to order it. It came today and I wanted to share some feedback because I know you care about fit and flattery in plus size clothing. I ordered the size XXL (equivalent to size 20). It seems that the zebra design stays the same size no matter the size of the sweater. In smaller sizes, the zebra takes up most of the front of the sweater. But in size XXL, the expanse of plain sweater grew while the zebra stayed the same size, so he’s poking his head out from under my arm and his nose is centered right over my breast. Not flattering! I was sorry to have to return the sweater and I’m sorry if this will discourage others from clicking through to order it from your site – hopefully they’ll find other things that are more flattering and with styles/designs that have been adjusted for large sizes instead of one-size-fits all. Thank you!

      Oh no that’s awful! Thank you for sharing that information, I have no desire for anyone to make a purchase they regret and it helps to share that kind of feedback. I ordered the sweater myself, it hasn’t yet arrived and I’m concerned I too will have to return it. THANK YOU.

        You’re smaller than me so hopefully in your size the zebra won’t be so shy! I just wanted to say how much I love your site, and that so many of your recommendations that I’ve taken in the past have worked out great. My all time favorite is the denim jacket from Soma. Thanks for all you do!

    You do so much research! Thank you for that. I found me a cute blazer jacket from Talbot’s in a rose quartz color. Since I’m in California, I can wear it all year round. I would never have looked at their site if you didn’t clue us in on the sale at Talbot’s.

    Love this post- trying to show restraint but there are so many great options on sale this weekend! One to add: Naturalizer has a 25% off and free shipping deal through 9/3 with code LAIDBACK.

    Thanks for all the sales! This is a post I purposefully saved to go through tonight. It’s been a long week, and I knew I’d enjoy checking out all your picks. It’s time for me to update my Soma VE panties & this sale seems like the best time to that. Enjoy the long weekend!

    Thank you, Allison! For those who are outdoorsy, REI has a LABORDAY19 code for 20% off on one REI Garage item, which is their outlet store. Good place for bargains on casual/sporty clothes and workout stuff.

    I got two pairs of jeans from Lane Bryant during their BOGO 50% sale. The jeans feature their “magic waistband” technology and came in their “curvy fit” sizing. They fit like a dream! No waist gaps, a bit of sretch and the perfect length. (In addition to regular and long sizing, LB also has petite and short fits: two different sizings for shorter girls!) I can’t wait until cooler weather until I can wear them full time!
