As the unofficial start of summer, Memorial Day ushers in plenty of warm-weather activities. There are celebrations to attend, outdoor adventures to embark on, and vacations to enjoy while the days are long and bright.

Macy’s Memorial Day Sale will make it easy for everyone in the family to refresh their wardrobes for a new season of events and outings.
From 5/26 through 5/31, Macy’s is offering an extra 20% off sitewide with the code MEMDAY.

From sheet sets to quick-dry towels and down-alternative pillows, you can bet that guests will feel comfortable for quick or long visits.
In addition to looking good and setting a scene, there are also discounts to be found on various covetable beauty items—including the likes of Prada perfume and Lancome face cream. So while you update your family’s wardrobe and your home’s interior design, you can also treat yourself to something extra special without giving it a second thought.

Style & Co. Solid Crop Top
Sale Price: $22.13 | Regular Price: $29.50
You can never have too many comfortable T-shirts, and with backyard barbecues, amusement parks, and seaside restaurants on the horizon, this crewneck option from Style & Co. is a flexible and fashionable choice. This T-shirt has a cropped silhouette that complements jeans, shorts, and skirts, and it has a relaxed fit so that you can move comfortably. Get it in a classic white, but don’t be afraid to try other colors too—this one comes in a full rainbow of nine hues.
Calvin Klein Half-Zip Logo Top
Sale Price: $16.96 | Regular Price: $59.50
There are many reasons why a long-sleeve half-zip is a great thing to have on hand in the summer–nights on the beach, cabin stays in the mountains, and even hiking excursions can all get chilly. Thankfully, you can keep warm and look stylish with this stretchy top, which comes with thumbholes and a drawstring at the hem for maximum coverage. The best part? Its white-and-black colors go with anything.
INC International Concepts Pull-On Shorts
Sale Price: $37.13 | Regular Price: $49.50
These mid-rise shorts can work for any event you have planned this summer thanks to their availability in a dozen colors. If you’re heading to a more formal event, these shorts will pair well with a long-sleeve flowing top. But if the event is casual, basic wear like tank tops and T-shirts can complement them well. With a streamlined look, the outfit options are endless.
Kenneth Cole Reaction Modern Blue Solid Suit
Sale Price: $82.49 | Regular Price: $395.00
When was the last time an event on your calendar required a suit? If you can’t remember, and the one you have has seen better days, then you might need this Kenneth Cole creation. On sale for under $100, this suit’s modern cut and color will make you look sharp from the moment you arrive. The fully lined jacket and unlined pants have a little spandex in them, too, so if you plan on hitting a dance floor, this suit’s stretch has you covered.
Lauren Ralph Lauren Classic Fit Dress Pants
Sale Price: $14.93 | Regular Price: $95.00
If you don’t need a suit but you still have formal occasions to attend, these dress pants will look the part and likely cost less than the gift you brought along. Made with Ultraflex stretch performance fabric and finished with a permanent crease, these pants come in three dark shades to perfectly contrast with a light-colored button down. You’ll look so good, someone might say “congrats” to you too.
Dockers Men’s Regular Fit Polo Shirt
Sale Price: $21.75 | Regular Price: $58
Summertime happy hours were made for outdoor patios, and this classic polo from Dockers looks as fresh as a mojito on a hot day. An embroidered Dockers logo on the left chest adds a bit of interest to the otherwise clean lines of this shirt, which comes in pink, light blue, or navy. Paired with linen slacks or classic jeans, this is the type of outfit that will never go out of style.
AQ Textiles Camden Sateen Sheet Set
Sale Price: $86.69 | Regular Price: $170.00
Now that your family can safely visit this summer, it’s probably time to update your guest room. Start with this four-piece sheet set from AQ Textiles, which has a 1,250 thread count and comes in a dozen different shades. The set includes a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and two standard pillowcases, and the sheets can be spread across Full or California King size mattresses. The sateen finish looks as good as a hotel room—but your relatives will probably be asking you for room service.
Hotel Collection Slow-Brew Coffee Set
Sale Price: $21.96 | Regular Price: $110
There’s nothing better to a coffee drinker than a strong, fresh cup in the morning, and this slow-brew set made exclusively for Macy’s makes that happen. A sleek combination of glass, brass, and wood, this coffee maker holds approximately 600 milliliters of coffee and is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. It’s pretty enough to display on your countertop too.
Lauren Ralph Lauren Standard/Queen Pillow
Sale Price: $10.19 | Regular Price: $20.00
A good pillow can make the difference between a restful night’s sleep and an achy start to the day. Toss your lumpy, old pillows for ones that actually keep you comfortable through the night with this down-alternative option from Ralph Lauren. Made with a 200-thread count cotton cover with an extra-firm density that’s ideal for side sleepers, this pillow can support your neck while aiding in those much-needed Zs. You’ll need them, given all the potential summer activities you have planned.
