For fashion lovers, the unofficial last weekend of summer means shopping the best Labor Day sales on clothes and other fashion goods. It’s the perfect time to grab that designer handbag that’s finally gone on sale, or get a head start on fall items like cashmere sweaters and leather pants that are discounted for a limited time.
This year, Monday, Sept. 5 is Labor Day. The vast majority of sales have commenced by the Friday before, Sept. 2, though some started as early as Aug. 30. Most run through Sept. 5, with a few lagging into Sept. 6. Regardless, you’ll want to get shopping immediately before deals run out, particularly in the most common sizes.
