When is Labor Day 2021?
Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday of September every year. This year Labor Day falls on Monday, September 6, 2021.
What is Labor Day?
Widely known as the unofficial end of summer, Labor Day began in September 1882 when unionized New Yorkers threw a parade to celebrate their hard work and labor. Now, we celebrate Labor Day as an official federal holiday to recognize and honor the contributions of laborers and the American labor movement.
When Do Labor Day Sales Start?
Labor Day sales typically begin a few days to a week before the start of September and run up until the holiday. Some brands begin sales as early as August to give shoppers more chances to save big, since Labor Day is one of the last major saving events until the holiday season.
What Will Be on Sale for Labor Day?
Expect to find all your back-to-school needs like beauty, clothing, accessories, home décor, and more on sale this Labor Day. Stores like Macy’s, Wayfair, and ThirdLove will offer some of the best deals for the holiday, so keep a lookout.
"Labor day is the end of summer and the start of fall, which means everyone is stocking up on earthy-toned cosmetics and new products for the season change," says Lynsey Newsham, an NYC-based makeup artist. She recommends stocking up on seasonal essentials like moisturizers, fragrances, and skincare to be prepped when the weather changes.
