Summer may look a bit different this year, but luckily, there’s still plenty to look forward to. Namely, Memorial Day sales. This year, brands are kicking off the season the right way, with massive price cuts to many of our wish-list products. Our style team gathered everything you need to know about the sales to make your shopping experience as simple as possible. Your home (and wallet) can thank us later.
The sale: 15% off outdoor furniture and accessories plus free shipping, beginning May 21. What we’d buy: The Palissade collection. We’ve been obsessing over everything and anything from Hay’s best-selling line. Each piece showcases sleek, minimalist design and comes in three powder-coated hues perfect for alfresco dining on the terrace.
ABC Carpet & Home
The sale: 30% off everything, May 22–25. What we’d buy: The ceramics. It’s hard to narrow down what we’d add to our carts from the brand’s biggest sale of the year, but the one thing we keep coming back to are the handcrafted mugs, bowls, and everything in between. Whether you opt for a decoupage vase from John Derian or a poppy coral noodle bowl from Mud Australia, these discounts offer you no choice but to revamp your collection.
The sale: 20% off everything, May 22–25.What we’d buy: The rugs. It’s not hard to find something you love on Minna’s site. The ethically made home goods brand supports local crafters and brings traditional designs to any space. The graphic, earth-toned rugs perfectly encapsulate what the brand represents, and we can’t stop thinking about them. If you’re hoping for a more plush option, go with the Moon Pile Rug, hand-knotted and loomed in Arequipa, Peru. Or if you want a geometric handwoven option, the Cubitos Rug (made in Teotitlán del Valle, Mexico) looks like modern art for your floor.
The sale: 20% off everything, May 22–25. What we’d buy: The linen bedding. Multiple members of team Domino can confirm: Once you go Parachute, you never go back. One touch and the brand’s über-soft comfort essentials become immediate favorites. While prices are down, take this opportunity to stock up on your dream bedding. We recommend the full linen set: duvet, shams and a body pillow.
Serena & Lily
The sale: 20% off everything, May 21–26 with the code LIVEWELL. What we’d buy: The “patioware.” Now is the perfect time to let the coastal-chic homeware brand decorate your outdoor area for you. Its breezy patio essentials—like this picnic-worthy gingham umbrella, matching pillows, and beachy rattan lanterns—will transform your space into a vacation-esque sanctuary.
The sale: Various discounts now through June 3. What we’d buy: The appliances. Gadgets can be pricey, so why not upgrade while you can still get a discount? We’re loving all of LG’s high-tech products (and not just because they’re smarter than us), but if you’re in the market for WiFi-enabled gizmos, like a refrigerator, oven, or washing machine, the below options will make your life easier and sleeker.
The sale: 25% off select outdoor living items, May 20–25. What we’d buy: The planters.If you’re testing out your green thumb or are already a seasoned plant parent, Terrain should be the first stop on your greenery shopping list. Right now, we’re loving its wide array of planters, from a weathered look with tons of texture to multi-size wicker pieces.
The sale: 30% off everything, May 21–24, and 50% off hundreds of styles on May 25. What we’d buy: The lighting. When you think of Urban Outfitters, light fixtures aren’t the first thing that comes to mind, but that’s about to change. The millenial-geared brand is offering everything from a candy-esque pendant lamp to an accordion-style sconce to illuminate your bedtime ritual.
The sale: Up to 60% off select products.What we’d buy: The Japanese Shun knives. If there’s one thing that every foodie needs, it’s a professional set of knives. Luckily, Williams Sonoma has something for us all. Newbies can opt for the starter set, while more seasoned chefs might want to go with a professional splurge. Regardless, after this sale, dinner will be extra-tasty.

What we’d buy: The photography. Everyone has their own art preferences, but these days we’re using our blank walls to display escape routes to simpler times and exotic destinations. Saatchi Art has something for everyone, but if you’re anything like us, you’ll be focused on faraway beaches and jungles to provide a mental getaway while a physical one isn’t possible.
