There is positively nothing like a Wayfair sale, and lucky for you, dear reader, the next big markdown period has arrived. Wayfair's Memorial Day sales have started already, and I've already found some pretty great markdowns.

Of course, you'll want to act fast — some of these deals only have a limited shelf life, so you've got to get them in your basket to beat the crowd. With pages and pages to search through, it can feel a little overwhelming, but fortunately, you've got an experienced interiors editor on your side to weed out the best, most stylish, most on trend pieces that are on sale.

Consider this your ultimate guide to shopping the Wayfair Memorial Day Sale. You'll want to bookmark this page and return to it this week for all of the best finds. You don't have time to dig through Wayfair's sales but we certainly do! And don't forget to check out our Wayfair editor's choice and the best of the Wayfair outdoor furniture sale when you're done.

When is Wayfair's Memorial Day sales?

While Memorial Day is officially the 27th May, Wayfair tells us it's running sales from now until the 28th. Right now, it's called a 72 Clearout Sale on the site, with deals running for 72 hours — meaning as the weekend progresses we may see different sales on different items. We're talking stunning markdowns on everything from outdoor furniture to loveseats to accent lighting.

What is Way Day?

Way Day is Wayfair's twice-annual sale that happens once in the spring and once in the fall. The spring one has just happened — it was between the 4th and 6th May this year. We don't yet know the dates for the fall sale, but it typically falls between October and November (ideally quite close to Black Friday markdowns too!), and is perfect for getting a head start on your holiday shopping.

Once we know the dates for the fall sale, we'll be sure to let you know. So bookmark this page and check back periodically for the best regular sale and best Way Day deals, once live.

Can anyone access the sales?

Absolutely. Wayfair's sales are accessible to anyone and everyone, so long as you're able to online shop.

When is the next big Wayfair sale?

The second Way Day is slated for the fall, but you can certainly expect other sales between now and then. For example, not only are there Memorial Day sales right now, we anticipate big markdowns for Fourth of July, and Labor Day, as well as the typical Black Friday discounts we've all come to know and love.
