Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Labor Day is widely considered the jackpot of summer sales, but Memorial Day has its own perks. Just about every brand you can think of (including many a Racked 38 member) is doing some major discounting this weekend, and the special beauty of the Memorial Day sale is that all the markdowns are on the warm-weather merch you actually want to be wearing all summer long, anyway. After the jump, behold 39 sales to outfit all your beach-lounging, park-strolling, brunch-eating, BBQ-hosting, lazy-Sundaying needs this season. Thirty-nine not enough for you? Let us know what we missed in the comments.
