While some look forward to Memorial Day to mark the beginning of summer Fridays, time off, and warmer weather, we count down to the holiday for quite a different reason: It's sale time, and we get very serious about it. But, in addition to the more than 40 online deals we already rounded up for you just in time for the three-day weekend, there's another very important event we'd like to direct your attention (and your credit cards) to: Nordstrom's Half-Yearly Sale. From now until May 30, select women's, men's, and kids' merch is discounted up to 40% off, including a ton of designer goods we know you've been eyeing since January. While this sale is both in store and online, we took the liberty of putting together our dream shopping list so you can find the best-of-the-best without wasting any of your precious time. Wallets at the ready?
