This Weekend’s Best Sales, According To R29 Shopping Editors

As professional online shoppers, Refinery29 affiliate writers have a *spidey* sense for the best virtual sale sections and limited-time deals. Whether it’s Lululemon’s ol’ reliable We Made Too Much tab or a flash deal on a celebrity-loved necklace — where there’s a clearance rack, there’s an R29 shopping editor sizing up its price-slashed goods. And today, we present to you the best sales happening this weekend, according to us.

The best sales and/or deals must meet at least one of the following criteria: It’s on discounted Refinery29 reader-favorite items (according to our anonymous shopping data). It takes a minimum of 25% off the full price. Or it’s a rare price slash, making a slightly smaller discount still notable. TL;DR: The following sales are ones to watch and worthy of a spot in all budget-friendly carts — I mean, in our opinion.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
