14 Sales to Shop This Holiday Weekend

While this weekend’s primary focus is, of course, on the service and sacrifice of sir Martin Luther King — there’s no denying that such holiday weekends come with a few fringe benefits, like shopping.

… Online. From bed.

At noon.

Specifically, this marks the time of year when retailers are slashing prices on two key categories:

Workout gear — fitness brands like Athleta, Nike and Lululemon are taking advantage of our resolutions to lose weight, hit the gym and get fit by offering markdowns on lots of apparel and equipment. Nordstrom just added a lot of activewear to their sale section, too.

In addition, clothing retailers are clearing the racks of sweaters, coats and other cold-weather apparel to make room for spring and summer collections in February. (Yes, already!)

Here’s a few of my favorite sales (click the hotspots below to shop each item):

40+ Cyber Monday Deals to Bookmark

If you’re like I am, you avoid the insanity that deal-hunting for Black Friday/Cyber Monday at all costs… In-person, at least.

I have a love/hate relationship with holiday shopping. By that, of course, I mean that I love sales and hate crowds — which is why I do my damage online.

I love online shopping (to my wallet’s dismay), but if I had to stick to a few Cyber Monday deals this year, it’d be NordstromPiperlime and Shopbop — hands down. All three have items for women and men — ranging in price from affordable to designer.

Okay, let’s get to it.

Grab your coffee, shake off last week’s turkey coma and let’s get to it. There’s deals to be had! (In the time that you’ve read this, I’ve already bought these boots.) Happy shopping — from the comfort of my couch desk to yours!
