The Labor Day Sales might be best known as the time to pick up furniture and tech bargains.

But there are still plenty of amazing fashion and beauty sales happening this weekend, just before Labor Day, which falls on Monday, September 2nd this year.

So, if you are planning on a little retail therapy as well as spending time with your nearest and dearest this weekend, here are the best labor day sales to look out for.

Don’t forget to let me know in the comments below the article if you manage to bag a bargain you love.

Labor Day Sales

Labor Day has its origins in protests against long working days. Now, it’s a time to spend with loved ones if you can as well as being one of the best times to shop during the year.

Many stores have heavy discounts. My advice would be to take a look at the trends for fall 2019 and see if you can pick up some pieces which will take you through winter and fall.

Or, you could look at these sales from another perspective and pick up summer pieces that you will use now (and for summers to come).

If you’re looking for big items like appliances or a bed, for example, or you have your eye on the latest piece of technology, Labor Day is probably the sales event for you.

You’ll generally find discounts of anything between 20% and 80% off.

Here is what to expect from some of the best clothing and accessories stores with labor day sales.

amazon labor day sales

You’ll generally find a lot of tech and electrical products in Amazon’s Labor Day sales, but there are also plenty of discounts on fashion, particularly on Amazon’s own fashion brands.

Amazon hasn’t revealed exactly what will be on sale over the Labor Day weekend yet, but you can always look at the fashion deals and discounts to check out sale prices and lightening sales.

When I checked, there were deals for dresses under $30 and scarves for under $10, but you’ll find something different in this section each day.

Of course, you might want to treat yourself to some new technology too. Amazon already has early discounts on the Amazon Echo Dot speaker.

Have you discovered Reformation yet? Concerned about the conditions some workers have to face in some parts of the world, Reformation decided to do the responsible thing and build its own factory in Los Angeles where its pieces are made.

I’ve never seen a sale at Reformation to date, so to have 70% currently is a big deal.

Many pieces are aimed at young women, so you’ll find plenty of mini styles in the same way you would at the likes of Topshop. But there are also lots of stylish flattering options for 40+ women.

There are plenty of pieces such as crop tops you may which to leave to the likes of Jennifer Lopez (unless you happen to have her abdominal muscles), but also lots of discounts on basics, tees and shirts as well as on midi dresses and athletic wear and leggings.

There are some nice shirt dresses that I would wear over leggings or pants as a tunic.
