Nordstrom's Memorial Day 2017 Half-Yearly Sale Is Happening & The Savings Are Insane

#ByeMoney. If some reason, like the weather or your mood, is preventing you from engaging in backyard BBQs and/or other fun-in-the-sun activities this Memorial Day Weekend, here's something that can cheer you up. The Nordstrom Memorial Day Sale aka The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is happening in stores and via the retailer's site. The savings are insane and the sale features luxe, contemporary brands like Alexander Wang, Rebecca Minkoff, and Alice + Olivia. If you've been eyeing investment-like items, now is the time to take the plunge and to take advantage of the savings.

The sale has been active since Wednesday, May 24 and it runs through Sunday, Jun. 4. So it lasts for a week after the Memorial Day Weekend holiday. That gives you plenty of time to enjoy the savings.

But why wait?

Here's how the savings stack up. Nordstrom is offering up to a whopping 40 percent off favorite styles for women, children, and men. Other brands included are Derek Lam, Frame, Nike, Helmut Lang, Kenzo, See by Chloe, and Tibi.

If you were looking to make some updates and upgrades to your wardrobe, but were waiting until your budget could handle it, well, the Nordstrom Memorial Day Sale arrived just in time for summer.
