Ah, Memorial Day. The first long weekend of summer. Where (if it would ever stop raining in Houston) pool– and porch–side cocktails flow, the temps haven’t quite entered triple-digit territory, and the smell of backyard briskets fills the humid air from The Woodlands down to Galveston Beach.

And then there are the sales. Big brands are running them, of course. Think Home Depot, Wayfair, and even Etsy. And, locally, a few of our favorite home-decor shops are getting in on the fun too.

With options to upgrade your picnic presentation or dress up your dining room ahead of that fully vaxed dinner party you’ve been dreaming up for the past 15 months, these Memorial Day deals scream summer refresh while saving you a few bucks.

The Avenue

The brainchild of Houston influencer Lindsey Zorich is offering 20-percent off of purchases when made through The Avenue’s app now through Tuesday, wishing users a “happy almost summer!” Our advice? Head straight to Zorich’s Memorial Day Edit for charming outdoor tableware, like woven palm placemats or adorable cherry napkin rings made exclusively for the site.

Back Row Home

This Memorial-area shop, founded by Tracey Shingledecker and Kelly O’Donnell, is known for its approachable collection of 18th- and 19th-century antiques and furniture. Back Row is offering 20-percent off its inventory of Houston-based Visual Comfort lighting, like a rugged chandelier from the Ralph Lauren Collection (so Americana). But they're only open through Friday, so act fast, people! Perhaps the two friends are sourcing another container from Europe over the long weekend? 

Biscuit Flash

Chances are you've heard of Biscuit Home, arguably Houston's preeminent decor and linens purveyor, located in the heart of Montrose. But have you heard of the shop's Instagram-based flash sale operation? Few know exactly when they'll strike next, but if you're in the market for high-end and creative goods at a reduced price, you might want to turn notifications on for this account. Biscuit Flash shared a few pieces earlier this week (a some are still available as of this writing). We're watching closely for the next batch of deals. And in the meantime, shoppers can always peruse the brand's warehouse sale page on their website for savings on Biscuit's signature cocktail napkins and more.
