Ah, Memorial Day weekend. The "official" first day of summer might not be until June 21 but, as far as I'm concerned, the season of beach-going, BBQing, rooftop drinking, and jean shorts wearing hits over those three little days at the end of May.
And, as with every long weekend, retailers are using it as an excuse to try to sucker us all into shopping with sales galore — and it totally works. After all, it's only just gotten warm here in NYC, so I'm finally ready to start dropping some cash on sundresses, muscle tees, and sandals.
So, in honor of seasonal spending, check out 21 of the best deals your favorite brands are promoting this upcoming weekend. Horay for saving on summer staples.
