Last Minute Sale Recommendations

April 22, 2018

Sales can be great for many reasons: they allow you to get items you’ve been lusting for without spending a fortune; almost every item from last season is on sale to fill your hearts desire; and you can freshen up your wardrobe by adding a few pieces for the upcoming season. Having so many options to choose from can be overwhelming and might result in you making the wrong purchase! Thus, with sale season at its peak, I’ve decided it was only right to make a post rounding up all the best sales and certain items to watch out for.

Although most of the big sales are ending tomorrow, hopefully this post will help you make the decision you’ve been holding out for and give insight into a few sales you didn’t know were going on. I have scoured the web this past weekend and pulled together my favorite pieces from quality retailers who are currently running sales.

The Outnet

I only discovered this retailer a short while ago, but since then I have fallen in love with them. Although they house expensive brands, they frequently have sales in which items are half off. Below you will find some wonderful items currently on sale, one of which is a Zimmerman jacket at 75% off. That’s an amazing deal! I would recommend the Outnet both for just-seen items as well as pieces you’ve been eyeing for ages. The discounted prices make shopping there an opportunity that's hard to turn down.


We are all familiar with Nordstrom so I won’t spend too much time talking about how remarkable they are. I will say however, that unlike The Outnet you can find a larger selection of price points some starting as low as $10! Also, they house loved brands such as Topshop and Ralph Lauren.

Urban Outfitters

This is for my friends who like a more street-style, laid back look. There are two things I always remember about Urban Outfitters, first they have something for everyone no matter what your style is. Second, their prices are normally too expensive for what I am willing to spend, thus I always try to take advantage of their sales.


REVOLVE is a much beloved brand by bloggers and consumers. Their dresses and playsuits are some of the best items they sell. Their sales are great because you get to pick up a few more items without feeling guilty!


Intermix is similar to The Outnet in that they both house more high-street and designer items. They have sales frequently however, so I would recommend checking them out if you’re someone who lusts over Zimmerman dresses but never want to spend the money!


Madewell, one of the more relaxed brands is great for all you lovers of clothes that are comfortable and chic! Their jeans and cargo pants are some of my favorite. Madewell is great because they always have classic and timeless pieces that never go out of style, but if you look closely you’ll be able to see they also incorporate some current trends. Enjoy an extra 30% off all sale styles with code YAY30.

Lou & Grey

I only learned of Lou & Grey recently, but I’m already in love with them! Their sweaters are my favorite items and they have both classic and fun options. Currently everything is 25% off!


Now, I know what you’re probably thinking “Isabella, have you lost your mind?” The answer is no I haven’t lost my mind. In fact, I’m shocked at the amazing deals I found. Chloé is a premium designer, so for something of theirs to be on sale for 40% off is very special. If you love Chloé and there’s something you’ve had your eye on, then I suggest checking out this sale. You never know, today could be your lucky day!


Loft is similar to Madewell in that they have classic and timeless pieces however, they incorporate newly trending items into the mix as well. I particularly like the many variations of the simple, classic, white blouse. Whether it be a crocheted collar, belle or balloon sleeves, or mesh paneling, Loft always has many options for you to choose from! You can get 40% off anything you purchase by using the code FRIENDS.


PacSun is normally the go-to place for younger shoppers, but don’t let that stop you from searching their inventory. This is among the least expensive recommendations I have listed. Despite that, PacSun sells amazing quality clothing and often have deals such as “buy-one-get-one-free”. I’m always lured into checking out their website. You should too! Take 20% off $100 with the code SPRINGSTYLE20.

Lord & Taylor

Lord & Taylor is very similar to Nordstrom. I’m always impressed by the quality of the items they sell and the wide range of selections. They’re also a great retailer when it comes to shoes so don’t forget to look in that department. If you use the code FRIENDS, you can take an extra 30% off most items already on sale, and 15% off most beauty products.

J. Crew Factory

J. Crew Factory is a great place to visit especially in the spring and summer! I love their selection of blue and white striped printed clothing. They also have great quality sweaters and cargo trousers if you’re looking for something you can wear in every season. Everything is 50% off  including new-in items!


Finally, there’s Nike, one of my all time favorite brands for active wear! I wear my Nike Roshe One sneakers whenever I’m exercising. I’ve had them for almost three years and they look as good as new! Nike has shoes for every activity including running, basketball, training, soccer, and golf. Their amazing activewear collection often gets overshadowed by their sneakers so make sure you check out their leggings, jackets, and sports bras.

Are there any brands I missed that you shopped at during the sale season? I always love hearing your recommendations!
