With a three-day weekend for many of us as we celebrate President's Day, that means more time for relaxing, sleeping in, and, of course, shopping. It's one of my favorite shopping weekends of the year as the weather has warmed up a bit, spring fashions are bright and alluring, and the spring cleaning bug has hit. Plus, there are sales galore, and really, it's one's patriotic duty to try and pump up the economy, right? Or at least that's what I'll tell my husband ...
Here's a roundup of some of the best President's Day sales around to spruce up your family's wardrobe, your home, and more:
Gap gets points for creativity with their 44 sale -- 44 styles on sale, one for every president. Savings are up to 44 percent off too, so there are some good deals to be had.
Pick: I like this laser cut bib top, on sale for $38.15, down from the original price of $54.50. It's cute now under a cardigan or jacket and will be cute solo as things heat up.
Macy's is offering discounts on pretty much everything. Order online and you get 15 percent off and free shipping with the promo code PRESIDENT. Clearance items are an extra 25 percent off when you shop online.
Pick: There are a ton of great deals on bedding. This Martha Stewart Collection set is on sale for $30.97 - 156.97, down from the original prices of $85.00 - 420.00. They're also having a mattress closeout if you're in the market.
Pottery Barn is clearing out their clearance items and offering an extra 15 percent off of all clearance merchandise. If you're shopping online, use the code SAVE15 to get your discount.
Pick: This Provence shower curtain just screams spring. Plus, it's organic, so it contains none of the scary chemicals that some do. It's on sale for $41.99 down from $59.
Bloomingdales is blooming with bargains during their Big Brown Bag Sale going on through Monday. Savings of 20-40 percent in all areas of the store are to be had.
Pick: These boys shorts are perfect for any sport. At just $9.60 per pair, the time to stock up is NOW.
Anthropologie I have found some of my favorite clothing items on the sales racks of this store. This weekend they have a host of items marked down online and in stores.
Pick: This fluttering Obi dress is still a bit pricey at $99.95, but at more than 50 percent off from the original price tag of $198 it's a bargain. It can be worn virtually year round too -- with boots and a sweater now and with strappy sandals as spring nears.
