Better Late Than Never: Best Memorial Day Sales!

     I'm definitely a bit on the late side with getting this sale recap up for y'all... but sometimes real life has to come before a blog post! I'll share more about this later in the week, but I was able to score last minute concert tickets in Montreal through work for Thursday night, and a friend of mine from out of town was able to come up to Vermont at the last minute to join me and spend a couple days visiting. We had a wonderful time, but anyways, getting my Memorial Day Sales blog post up wasn't my top priority for the last couple days with the change in my schedule. Do forgive me! 😉 But hey- better late than never right? The weekend isn't over yet- and there are still some amazing deals to be found! I'm rounding them all up below:

     I always think of the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Memorial Day Weekend sale as the official pregame to July's NSale- anyone else think the same? I'm definitely a bigger fan of the actual NSale... but there are a few good finds in this year's Half-Yearly that I still wanted to highlight for you guys!
  • Pink Hunter boots on sale: I've wanted Hunter boots for years but it didn't rain frequently enough in the Carolinas for me to make the splurge. Vermont is a different story though... there have been more rainy days than sunny ones since I moved. so I might finally be making the splurge this year.
  • Tory Burch Watch: This is a splurge item- but during this sale it is 40% off! Every girl needs at least one nice watch, and this is a stunner.
  • Chic Blue Dress: I love the cut of this dress- how elegant and modern! 
  • Peacock Watch: I'm not normally a big watch girl but this sale has so many cute watches in it, haha! I love this fun one from Kate Spade. I think Peacocks are just beautiful so I'm loving Kate Spade's Peacock inspired collection.
  • Straw Tote: I'm actually not a huge fan of the straw tote trend that's big right now. In all honesty, I think it's a huge fad that will pass quickly. BUT- this is the first straw tote I've seen that I'd consider getting! It's so cute and under $100!

     *Other great sales:

   *Ann Taylor: 40% off sale styles + 50% off sale styles. Use code SUMMER.

    *Banana Republic: 40% off. Use code BRSUMMER.

    *Charming Charlie: BOGO Free Jewelry Sale.

     *New York and Company: Everything 50-70% off (some really good deals here!).

     *Shein: $5 off orders $55+ with code MDW5.

     And on a side note from the Memorial Day sales talk- a shameless plug for my radio shows this weekend, since I'm on air more than usual. 😉 If you'd like to listen to me, both stations that I work for have the option to listen live on the website, as well as free iPhone apps in the app store. All times listed are in EST!

     5/27: Planet 96.7 from 3-7 pm

     5/28: Planet 96.7 from 10 am-3pm
     Star 92.9 from 10 am-3pm
     (Yes I'm on air on both at the same time... the magic of modern radio!)
     5/29: Star 92.9 from 12 am-5am

     Happy Shopping and have a great long weekend! And thank you to all of those who have served our country past and present!

     God Bless,

     xoxo Annaliese (or Charlotte XO on the radio!)



  1. I'm so glad that you included an affordable straw tote option-I'm all for trends, but I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on something that will be "out" next summer!

  2. Check out Hunter Tour boots! They're much more flexible and light.
