This summer brought more than its fair share of markdowns—thank you, Amazon and Nordstrom—and it’s not over just yet. The best Labor Day sales of 2022 are popping up early, and they’re shaping up to be some of the best we’ve ever seen, just in time for the unofficial end of the season.
Although Labor Day weekend is still a few weeks off, retailers like Madewell, Dermstore, and Brooklinen are already slashing prices to make way for some fall newness—whether that manifests itself in your closet, on your vanity, or in your bedroom. The last few weeks of August are a great time to unwind by the pool, light up the grill, or bask in the great outdoors, of course—but now’s also your chance to hit the virtual shelves and snag tons of gems across fashion, beauty, and home for way below retail. (If summer has to come to an end, at least it’s going out in style.)
There’s no telling when fall weather will swoop in this year, but transitional staples like jackets, boots, and knits are essential—and they’re already on sale for the holiday. Cult-favorite beauty products are also in the mix, as are a bevy of tech, smart home, and mattress deals, meaning there’s something for everyone and every budget. (We’re also keeping an eye out for Labor Day sales events from retailers like Best Buy, Wayfair, and The Home Depot, and we’ll update this story as they roll in.) Ahead, shop the best early Labor Day sales of 2022 before they—and summer—set like the fading sun.

The fashion destination may have just closed out its Anniversary Sale, but Nordstrom’s deal section just got replenished with some very chic finds from the likes of Reformation and Agolde. You’re going to want to do some digging.
There’s always a sale (or a million) happening at Amazon, but the retailer is pulling out all the stops for the end of summer. Right now, you can snag Black Friday-worthy gems like a classic Levi’s jacket and a cashmere dress to start transitioning your summer wardrobe to fall. (Keep an eye out for coupons for extra savings.)
With tons of cute jackets, comfy jeans, and affordable accessories to shop, a Madewell sale rarely disappoints.

Use code FIRSTLOOK for 25% off at checkout—then start daydreaming about apple orchards and pumpkin spice lattes.

Net-a-Porter’s sale section always swells at the end of every season, but the site’s selection of marked-down designer finds is especially good right now. (We’re talking up to 80% off, people!) Stretch out summer in a breezy dress or build out your year-round wardrobe with a pair of slick sunnies; there are no wrong answers here.
Why pay full price for designer goods when you can just wait for it to go on sale at MatchesFashion? The multi-brand retailer stocks both established brands and up-and-coming labels, ensuring you’ll find something unique in its massive selection of markdowns. Our only advice: Act fast, because the best stuff sells out quickly.

It’s not every day that you can snag top-shelf beauty products for up to 25% off—but today is an exception. Dermstore’s Anniversary Sale is stocked with hundreds of our favorite hair- and skin-care products, from skin-clearing pads to lotion that’s ideal for drier days ahead.
Planning a skincare switch-up for fall? Open a new tab for SkinStore. The retailer is offering up to 30% off cult-favorite beauty brands with no minimum spend. Plus, orders of $130 or more also get a free gift from PCA Skin.
