This post has been updated on 5/23 to reflect Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale offering. 

We never thought this day would come (that was the longest spring ever), but Memorial Day 2019 is finally here and so is Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale! The epic event just went live yesterday, May 22, and is giving us all the reasons to put the hot dog down and shop.

Memorial Day isn’t until Monday, May 27 this year, but your favorite retailer already kicked off the MDW weekend with an epic 50% off semi-annual sale!

We have all the details on that sale below, but if you’re an impatient online shopper like us (or just don’t like to read), you will be happy to know that they’ve got Madewell tees for $11, Converse sneakers for $35, 40% off Zella leggings and more. Hurry–the sale lasts until June 2, but those deals won’t.

Everything You Need To Know About Nordstrom’s Memorial Day Sale

True fans of the massive department store know that Nordstrom doesn’t, in fact, have a “Memorial Day” sale but instead, the holiday coincides with their highly-anticipated Half-Yearly Sale!

The details of the 2019 Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale were just released and the sale is officially live, and as we predicted, Nordstrom has done us good. Just like 2018, we’ve been blessed with 19,000 items on sale. The sale runs for a whopping 11 days. There is no bad news here!

Nordstrom Memorial Day Sale 2019

Nordstrom’s 2019 Half-Yearly Sale just started on Thursday, May 22 and runs to Sunday, June 2. The sale features 19,905 items marked down up to 75% off (most items are 40-50% off). The brands featured include Tory Burch, Madewell, Topshop, Eileen Fisher, Theory and more. Here are our editors’ picks:

Converse for $35

Converse Chuck Taylor® All Star® Shoreline Low Top Sneaker ($35.98, down from $60)

We never thought we’d see the day that Converse sneakers would be as cheap as this. This pretty pink pair is secretly slip-on. So easy!

Madewell tees for $11

Madewell Whisper Cotton Cotton V-Neck Pocket Tee ($11.70, down from $19.50)

This everyday t-shirt can be tucked in jeans, layered with a cardigan, worn over leggings… the options are endless. It also comes in a deep green.

40% off Zella leggings

Zella Perfection Crop Leggings ($35.40, down from $59)

Nordstrom’s cult leggings brand is majorly marked down at the sale. These are the best leggings!!

Tops for $20

BP. Linen Blend Camisole Top ($20.98, down from $35)

A button-front cami in an airy linen blend looks cute and feels cool in warm weather for 40% off.

Nordstrom Memorial Day Sale 2018

Nordstrom’s 2018 Half-Yearly Sale ran from May 23 to June 3 and shoppers had the chance to score 40% off on select styles. The sale started right before Memorial Day weekend and ended the following Sunday, giving shoppers plenty of time to shop and make the most of its amazing discounts.

Nordstrom Labor Day Sale 2018

This deal was very similar to the 2018 Nordstrom Labor Day Sale, which is formally known as its annual Summer Sale. The sales event ran from Friday, August, 31 until Sunday, September 9 and offered up to 40% off on select items across its Women’s, Men’s, Kid’s, and Home sections.

Nordstrom Black Friday 2018

But let’s be real, this sale didn’t even compare to the 2018 Nordstrom Black Friday Sale. The retailer joined in on the Black Friday/Cyber Monday fun and offered up to 60% off throughout the major shopping weekend. Shoppers were also given up to 50% off select styles from Topshop and Topman Designer clearance items, which were already heavily discounted.

The Nordstrom Memorial Day/Half-Yearly Sale has always been our team’s favorite shopping holiday. Last year, our editors treated themselves to everything, including countless discounted designer shoes, chic cold-weather coats on clearance, and even trendy new arrivals for summer. Who knows what goodies we’ll sock away this year!
