After months of braving wavering weather and torrential snowstorms in thick socks and puffer coats, your wardrobe deserves a healthy tune-up. The term "spring cleaning" may most commonly apply to light dusting and discarding unnecessary knickknacks, but your closet requires just as much attention as your cluttered kitchen. Enter Memorial Day sales, whose sole purpose is to fill the sartorial voids in your wardrobe and harken the arrival of summer. But where does one start when delving into the extensive territory of Memorial Day sales? Every department sale worth its salt hosts annual Memorial Day extravaganzas so extensive consumers may be exhausted before they even hit the shoe department, while petite, local boutiques often don't adequately advertise their holiday sales before the clearance is effectively over.
Those wayward shoppers in search of the best Memorial Day sales are in luck. After combing through the plethora of deals to be had over the holiday weekend, the following 25 sales were deemed to be the most enticing of the lot, with covetable wares at a steep discount for maximum sartorial satisfaction. Get ready to draw your wallets, because these Memorial Day deals aren't to be missed.
