Your Outdoor Oasis Awaits

Who’s ready to get outdoors and soak up a little Vitamin D? I know I’m ready for outdoor dinners, reading under an umbrella, and watching the sunset (adult beverage in hand). This time of year, I really start thinking about my outdoor space and typically, it needs some work. But, where do we start? First, give that patio a deep power wash. You want to remove that layer of dust and grime that inevitably appears over the winter months. This alone makes a world of difference! Once your space is clean, you can evaluate what’s going to make it through another season and what needs a refresh.

Sometimes just a few new potted flowers, new pillows, or a few accessories will do the trick. But if it’s time for an overhaul to create your open-air retreat, Serena & Lily is having their Spring Sale NOW. You get 20% off everything with the code HOME (even sale items!) Serena & Lily is known for quality pieces that stand the test of time. Keep scrolling for some gorgeous sale picks that will help you create a luxurious outdoor space right in your own backyard.

If you are looking for some affordable indoor pieces with a lighter color palette for spring & summer, this post has some great options!

Entertainment Essentials

Serving trays, a woven runner, pretty candle holders – these are all great pieces to start your outdoor refresh! The woven placemats are ideal for outdoor eating, and I love the ones with navy trim.


Outdoor Sofa & Chairs

I’m loving the classic streamlined silhouette of this teak sofa and matching chairs. The light rattan option also looks updated and fresh. Both are available in multiple fabric options that repel water and stand up to the sun’s rays without fading. The texture is durable but still comfortable and inviting.


Comfy Sectionals

If you prefer a sectional over a sofa and chairs, both of these options look comfortable (not to mention nap-worthy). I’m partial to the silvery patina of teak as it develops over time. It gives it character without looking “weathered”. But, if you prefer warmer tones, you can sand off the patina and start new each season.


Dining Al Fresco

This expandable teak dining table is ideal for small and large groups. The extra panel allows you to accommodate up to 10 guests. A definite weather-friendly option, the planked top allows the rain to drain right through. I like the idea of ​​mixing up the chairs – some with arms, some without, and maybe the wicker sofa chairs on each end.



If you are looking for a perfect poolside chaise, this one fits the bill. The hidden pull-out tray keeps your book, sunscreen, and a cool beverage at your fingertips. You’ll feel like you’re on vacation (pool boy not included). This side table, plant stand, or extra seat – whatever you please, is a versatile piece that works indoors and out. The cutout handles on either side make it easy to move.
