Including one deal exclusive to Katie Couric Media readers!
Even though we’re sad to start putting away our swimsuits and sun hats, we have to admit that we won’t miss how sweaty and swampy this summer has been. With Labor Day as the unofficial beginning of fall, we’re looking forward to pulling out our favorite fall boots and most comfortable jeans to prepare for the season.
And while we’re at it, we’ll also be looking for ways to refresh our wardrobes and homes on the cheap — thankfully, Labor Day sales are here to help us with that. Whether you’re in the market for a new mattress, want to freshen up your skincare routine, or feel the need to replace those boots you’ve worn to pieces, there is a slew of retailers offering markdowns through Labor Day weekend.
It’s grueling to try and keep track of all your favorite brands’ deals and sales, so we’ve done it for you. Here’s our giant list of all the sales we’ll be shopping throughout the long weekend, and we’ve included some products currently in our carts, too.
Best Labor Day Sales 2022
Clothing and Accessories
Katie loves J.Crew for its timeless basics and reliable denim, especially this bootcut pair that fits her like a glove. Throughout the holiday weekend, you can get 30 percent off your purchase and an additional 50 percent off sale styles with the code LONGWKND. Excuse us while we go fill our carts!
Known for their no-nonsense bra designs and sleek underwear, Cuup is offering up to 60 percent select styles, no code needed. The brand carries 53 different bra sizes between five silhouettes, so there’s plenty to choose from.
If you have multiple piercings, buying earrings in a pair can make things complicated. You either have leftovers or you’re always short an earring. Studs allows you to buy single earrings instead of pairs, so you can mix and match or keep things cohesive. Right now, everything on the site is 20 percent off, including sale styles.
If you’ve been holding off on refreshing your bra collection, now is the time to finally do it. Thirdlove is offering 20 percent off purchases of $150 or more with the code TL-LOVE20, and bras in the sale collection start at only $9.
Line in the Sand
Line in the Sand
Throughout the long weekend, you can save up to 25 percent off select items at Line in the Sand. Even though only a few items are on sale, you can grab some of Katie’s favorite items, like their versatile swim dress or comfy swim leggings for a fraction of their original prices.
Nordstrom is calling this its end of the summer sale because the savings go past Labor Day (until September 11 to be exact), and we’re not complaining about it! You can snag deals from just about every category, so if you’re out of your favorite eye cream or need a new bedding set, now is the time to invest. We’ve got our eyes on these linen pants that are thick enough to wear into the fall, and they give off major coastal grandma vibes.
Starting on September 1, you can take an additional 50 percent off all sale styles from Vince Camuto with the code LABORDAY. If that wasn’t enough to make your jaw drop, the incredible sale includes adorable sandals, flats, handbags, jewelry, clothing, and more — both in men’s and women’s styles. The sale goes through September 6.
In need of some new specs? Whether you want sunglasses, blue light glasses, have a prescription, or just want to look the part, LensDirect is offering 40 percent off all eyewear and sunglasses with the code LABOR40. You can take advantage of the savings September 1-5.
We’re loving this pair that reminds us of a similar pair Katie wears often.
The only thing better than one Labor Day sale is two! From August 26 to September 6, Madewell is offering 30 percent off select items with the code LONGWEEKEND. They’re also offering 40 percent off sale with the same code until September 1. If you’re in the market for the perfect fall dress, may we suggest this one?
Let’s face it: Working out is more fun when you have cute clothes to do it in. Thankfully, athleisure has also become acceptable to wear outside of the gym and your house, so you can stock up on versatile essentials from Athleta’s sale section from September 1 to 5. Items like sports bras and leggings are already up to 60 percent off, but they’ll be an additional 30 percent off throughout the holiday weekend.
There’s no such thing as too many pairs of underwear, especially when they’re comfortable, stylish, and leakproof. Proof is daring you to wear white past Labor Day by offering 20 percent off your purchase until September 5 (with the code WEARWHITE). You can choose from a myriad of styles, ranging from thongs to high-rise briefs, all of which have a protective leakproof gusset that will absorb blood, sweat, or leaks, keeping you dry all day.
When you have to fit a week’s worth of clothing in a tiny carry-on, packing all your favorite clothing items becomes more like an Olympic sport than an exciting pre-trip ritual. Wayre creates super packable clothing that’s made from recycled materials (and goes up to size 24), and they’re even infused with anti-stink technology, so you can wear them multiple times in a row without having to wash them. Right now everything on the site is 30 percent off, so snag these must-have trousers and anything else before the sale ends on September 6.
We already head to Nordstrom Rack to find deals on our favorite designer brands, but they’re offering an additional 40 percent off sale items from August 31 to September 5, so we will definitely be shopping for fall staples over the long weekend. We’ve got this Max Mara tiered maxi in our carts right now.
Have you been putting off updating your underwear drawer for a little too long? If you’re in desperate need of some undies that don’t have holes in them and have elastic that still stretches, we’d say it’s time for a top drawer revamp. Knickey is offering 15 percent off site-wide September 1 through 5 with the code LDW15 — you can even get underwear sets at a discounted price.
If you didn’t notice already, we’re big fans of leak-proof underwear at KCM. They’re more sustainable than disposable pads, they keep you dry longer, and they’re pretty darn cute. You can snag whatever leak-proof style your heart desires for 20 percent off at Knix right now, including sexy lace styles.
You can always score beautiful pieces at reduced prices from Everlane’s sale section, but when they’re up to 60 percent off the original price? That feels a little sweeter. Over the long weekend (August 31 to September 5), Everlane is taking up to 60 percent off all summer items and offering 30 percent off all denim. Make the most of this one: You can buy some end-of-summer pieces and start to refresh your fall wardrobe all in one go.
Cast iron is a kitchen staple for a reason, and it’s because it can basically do it all. From frying to baking, soups to breads, you can create an entire meal with a couple of cast iron pieces. This three-piece set comes with two ceramic-coated cast iron Dutch ovens (which conveniently nest together for storage) and a traditional cast iron skillet. The best part? You already get a discount for buying these in a bundle, but you get an additional 20 percent off with the code LDW20 now through September 5. If cast iron isn’t on your list, you can opt for any of Great Jones’ beautiful cookware, all of which is discounted.
If you’ve been waiting to buy that piece of furniture or vacuum you’ve been eyeing for months, now is the time. Furniture, appliances, décor, and bedding is up to 60 percent off at Wayfair right now, and the sale goes through the long holiday weekend. We vote you add this Dyson that’s $100 off right now to your cart before it sells out.
If you’re a recent empty nester and are ready to do a slight room refresh to a newly vacant bedroom, consider Brooklinen a one-and-done bedding shop. You can save through bundling sheets, comforters, and duvet covers, and the brand is offering an additional 15 percent off your purchase now through September 8.
More is more, especially when discounts are involved. From September 1 through 6, you can save 15 percent on one rug or 20 percent on two or more rugs, including new releases. Whether you’re on the hunt for a trendy cowhide-style rug (that’s washable and faux!) or a new doormat, you can easily find something to fit your style and size needs during the sale. Just use code LD22 to ensure you receive the discount.
You’ve heard us talk about Our Place before, and it’s because it’s a team KCM favorite. From now until September 7, you can get 25 percent off sitewide (with some exclusions) — no discount code needed. The beloved Always Pan is only $108, which is one of the lowest prices for it we’ve ever seen.
Look, we love this mattress so much that we wrote a whole story about it. Investing in a new mattress is a financial doozy no matter what time of year it is, but being able to take 10 percent off of the total price makes it more bearable. With the code KATIECOURIC10 you can take 10 percent off the entire Avocado site (including bedding and clothing) through September 12.
Lulu and Georgia

Finding designer-approved home décor and furniture can be difficult if you don’t have the budget to bring in someone to entirely redo your house for you (which, who does in this economy?). Lulu and Georgia is the perfect place to find on-trend décor, furniture, and dishware, designer collaborations, and some serious home inspiration. The items tend to be on the pricier side, which is why we’re so excited to see that the entire site is 20 percent off until September 6.

You can take 10 percent off your purchase with the code DAME10.
