What to Buy on Sale This Week


Happy Valentine’s Day, dear friends! I’ve always been a big fan of Valentine’s Day (even when I was single.) I love the idea of celebrating love, both platonic and otherwise. In the past I’ve mailed little Galentine’s care packages out to my girlfriends (sorry friends, I didn’t get on that this year…) and it’s a fun day to simply tell the people in your life how much they mean to you. So don’t forget to tell your friends, family and significant others how much you love them today!

My favorite human (Carter, obviously) and I usually use Valentine’s Day as an excuse to dress up and try a new restaurant. (We’re going here tonight.) It’s generally a pretty low key evening. We occasionally exchange small gifts (I’m hoping he gets me a board game this year!) but mostly just take the oppertunity to spend some quality time together and get off our phones.

Anyway, as always there are tons of amazing things on sale and I’ve rounded up my favorites to save you some time. With Valentine’s Day and President’s Day happening over the next few days, retail stores are pulling out all the stops. Obviously holiday weekends like this one are good times to buy mattresses and appliances. But they’re also great times to buy some other fun goodies as well. Check out my roundup below!

Clothes + accessories on sale:

  • Bloomingdales is offering 20% off site-wide for Valentine’s Day (ends today) when you use code LOVE at checkout. When major department stores are running site-wide sales like this, it’s always a good idea to check out Nordstrom’s Price Matched section. (Bookmark that page. You’ll thank me later.)
  • I’ve seen this sweet blush wrap top on a few other bloggers and it’s SO CUTE!
  • I love a good modern statement earring and these fit the bill.
  • Speaking of modern earrings, I’ve had my eye on these (in black or red!) for months and they just went on sale.
  • This sporty bomber jacket is so cute and would make the perfect addition to your athleasure wardrobe.
  • A fun twist on a LBD!
  • A sweet little top for spring.
  • I just ordered this necklace.
  • Out From Under has the coziest basics and the whole line is on sale at Urban Outfitters right now. I’m especially drawn to this top and this sleep romper.
  • This jumpsuit would be perfect for all your events this spring and summer. Dress it up with stiletto sandals or dress it down with flat slides.

Home goods on sale:

  • Target is offering 30% off a wide selection of home items and an extra 15% off rugs in honor of their Presidents Day with code GEORGE. This stylish floor lamp (I love all the color options!) is such a steal. I’m ridiculously obsessed with this rug. And Target’s decor and art game is on point right now.
  • Pottery Barn is doing their President’s Day Weekend Sale with select products up to 70% off. I’m a huge fan of this rug. PB rugs are super soft and thick and feel really luxurious for the price.
  • How cute is this hot pink electric toothbrush?? It almost makes me want to replace my boring white one.
  • Nordstrom is price-matching a major All-Clad cookware sale! Time to stock up!
  • West Elm is doing 20% off everything this week with code BIGNEWS. Our house is outfitted in lots of West Elm, specifically their lighting fixtures, linens and we have this sofa.
  • Wayfair is running a big President’s Day Sale. Lots of good buys here, depending on what you’re looking for. I’ve had my eye on this dishwasher-safe gold flatware set. It’s a great price, and the reviews are promising. This bed is also super gorgeous and would compliment most any decor.

Master Bathroom Reno Inspiration

I’m not exactly looking forward to living in a construction zone for weeks at a time, but it’ll be worth it… Because we are finally ready to renovate our master bathroom!! No more carpeted bathroom floor, no more child-sized vanities, no more toilet that you have to wiggle the handle to flush… I’m living the dream over here folks.

The existing layout is perfectly fine and functional, so we don’t need to re-design that (which will save us some marginal amount of money on plumbing, etc.) But everything needs to be replaced – that means demolishing everything and installing a new vanity, plumbing fixtures, stone, tile, paint, lighting, toilet, mirrors… The list goes on and on. We also don’t have nearly enough storage right now. My beauty products take up a lot of room (shocking, I know)… So we’re working on some built-in solutions to accommodate that.

Tile and hardware options

{A few tile and hardware options we are considering.}

We’re in design mode here at the Beyl household right now. We can’t get started on much until we finalize our stone, tile and cabinet decisions. But we’re trying to get those all figured out this week, and I think we are headed in the right direction. (Fingers crossed!!) You know I’ll keep you guys in the loop when we get those figured out!

In the mean time, are some gorgeous master bathrooms that are inspiring our decisions right now.

What to Buy on Sale This week

Best Sale Buys 2-7

finish off winter in style…
1. Sweater by BB Dakota (on sale for $60) – this sweater has such a cute and flattering cut and the slimmer silhouette is unexpected for a cutout shoulder style.
2. Coat by Madewell (on sale for $129.99 – also on sale here) – This coat is classic and comes in three color options.
3. Ski jacket by Topshop SNO (on sale for $94.99 – more sizes but not on sale here) – This ski jacket is probably my favorite thing on this list. I own last year’s all-black version but I’m so tempted to buy the black and white too. Topshop SNO makes chic and flattering ski clothes, and their prices really can’t be beat. Especially when they go on sale.

(I’ve narrowed it down to my two favorites for this post, but there are tons of other coats on sale right now (J Crew and Club Monaco make my favorite coats), so if that’s something you’re in the market for, right now is a good time to buy.)

get ready for spring…
4. Silk dress by Madewell (on sale for $69.99) – your new go-to dress for all the bridal and baby showers next season.
5. Stripe shirt by Rails (on sale for $66.75) – the embroidery dresses up this classic button down and makes it more interesting.
6. Erika sunglasses by Ray-Ban (on sale for $79.97) – Ray-Bans are about as classic as they come (and there are lots of styles on sale at Nordstrom right now!) I have my eye on these Erikas.
7. Designer pillow by McGee & Co. (on sale for $27.99) – This adorable designer pillow is just what you need to brighten up your decor for spring.

stock up on basics…
8. Lip tint by French Girl (on sale for $12.80) – Lip tints are the best low-maintenance way to get some color on your face.
9. Feathers bra by Natori (on sale for $37.60) – This is my favorite bra and it’s a great price right now.
10. Gallery frames in gold, black and white by Pottery Barn (on sale for $174) – Gallery walls are a classy way to add family photos to your decor and personalize your home. PB is currently running a 30% off sale on all their frames. I love the look of a classic gallery wall with matching frames, but I thought this was gold, black and white combo of frames was especially cool because it has a more collected look to it, but it’ll still compliment most color schemes and decor styles.
11. skinny jeans by Citizens of Humanity (on sale for $166) – Citizen’s “Rocket” skinny jean has been my favorite cut of jeans for years and I’ve gone on and on about them countless times on this blog before. But they rarely go on sale, and especially infrequently in a classic color and style like these – so you should snatch these up because I know they’re going to sell out quickly.


Under $50: Tropical Beach Vacation Packing List
