You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.

Spring is here! We found heavily discounted sandals, swimsuits, sunglasses, as well as a $34 printer and a rarely-on-sale Noguchi lamp.

Diane von Furstenberg Sleeveless Shell Top

Wear this DVF shell top under a cardigan at work, and then take said cardigan off at night to reveal a very sultry, lacy back.

The DVF Adelyn Metallic Sweater

Speaking of cardigans, how about this metallic one?

Eileen Fisher Printed Organic Cotton Scarf

This cotton, springy Eileen Fisher scarf would make a very good Mother’s Day gift

$48 at Macy's
with code: VIP
Sertapedic Cool SlumberGel Jumbo Pillow

This is a very good price (eight bucks) for a cooling, body-adjusting Serta pillow.

$8 at Macy's
with code: VIP
Lodge 3.6-Quart Oyster White Casserole

 A shallow Dutch oven — ideal for stewed meats and paellas — in a nice shade of “oyster white.”

$73 at Macy's
with code: VIP
Villeroy & Boch Artesano Nature Mug

These house-in-Tuscany-ish Villeroy & Boch mugs come in blue, green, and beige. Incidentally, the entire Artesano collection is on sale.

Free People Don’t Forget Me Button-Detail Top

A lightweight “button-detail” top from Free People that’s ideal for these transitional, spring-ish days.

$29 at Macy's

Madewell Button Detail Sweatshirt

Well, look at that: another button-detail top on sale. This one’s from Madewell.

Something Navy Pocket Coat

Now that we know who Something Navy is … isn’t this a nice spring coat?

Rebecca Minkoff Small Karlie Leather Feed Bag

We’re not quite sure that the round metal accent has a “punk edge” exactly, but this is a very elegant and versatile leather cross-body bag from Rebecca Minkoff.

Kenneth Cole Reaction Shine Glass Slingback Sandal

Sandal season is nigh, and these Kenneth Cole slingbacks look a lot more expensive than $30.

Eastpak Padded Pakr Backpack

There is something very cool and crisp about a bright-white Eastpak backpack.

Skip Hop Funscape Activity Gym

Skip Hop is known for its not-totally-garish baby stuff (that babies still like). This activity gym will keep your little one occupied so you can do things, like, say, brush your teeth or eat a sandwich.

Guanabana Clutch Bag Wayuu

If you have any spring or summer weddings on the horizon, this Guanabana clutch will liven up an outfit.

J.W. Anderson Double Ball Bracelet

You could wear this fun J.W. Anderson bracelet to the same wedding — and at that point basically wear a potato sack and no one would notice.

Calvin Klein Underwear Bra

A logo-adorned Calvin Klein sports bra.

Everlane Men’s Heavyweight Slim Chino

When we first scoured Everlane’s “Choose What You Pay” sale, it wasn’t quite chino season. Well, now it is.

Brooks Brothers Solid Knit Henley

A go-with-anything Brooks Brothers henley.

Neiman Marcus Donegal Crewneck Sweatshirt with Elbow Patches

An orange Neiman Marcus sweatshirt you could wear out to dinner.

Proof Field Jacket

This field jacket from “technical apparel” line Proof has lots of neat features: a packable hood, a secret “document” pocket, and a zipper that “stops right below your belly button to give you greater range of movement.” It’s also available in green and black.

Isamo Noguch Akari Light Sculpture Model 20N

Over at Totokaelo, the entire “art-object” section is 15 percent off, including this Noguchi table lamp, which multiple Strategist editors own.

$149 at Totokaelo
with code: DESIGN15
Helen Levi Exclusive Small Planter

And a striped planter from one of the Strategist’s favorite ceramicists, Helen Levi.

$102 at Totokaelo
with code: DESIGN15
Adidas Originals 3-Stripe Mid-Rise Leggings

This comment about these Adidas leggings say it all: “Good for working out and even just some cute leggings.”

Adidas Originals Trefoil Logo Sock 3-Pack

Meanwhile, these men’s socks are a very good deal.

Lisa Marie Fernandez Genevieve Bikini

As we noted recently, there were (and still are) a ton of Solid & Striped bathing suits on super-sale at Matches. What we did not realize is that a lot of other swimsuits are on sale, too, like this adorable polka-dotted number from Lisa Marie Fernandez.

Haight V-Neck Crepe Bikini

A flattering pale pink two-piece from Brazilian line Haight.

Kiini Tasmin Swimsuit

And a V-neck one-piece from (somewhat controversial) line Kiini.

& Other Stories Leopard Print Ringer Tee

As our colleagues at the Cut noted, the & Other Stories sale is very good. There aren’t a ton of sizes left, but this leopard-print tee is too great not to include here.

& Other Stories Scoop Neck Sweater

Some end-of-season cashmere in a pleasing shade of rust.

& Other Stories Midi Wrap Dress

Wear this black wrap dress in warmer weather with some strappy sandals.

HP DeskJet 3632 All-in-One Wireless Printer/Copier/Scanner

Can’t get much better than $34 for a wireless HP printer/copier/scanner.

Nike Air Vapormax 2019

These are some very statement-making Nike Air Vapormaxes.

Beyond Yoga Spacedye High Waist Ombre Leggings

Some very stately ombre Beyond Yoga leggings.

Lululemon All Tied Up Tank

While we’re in workout land, why not throw in this pale pink Lululemon tank.

Miu Miu Lucite 49MM Round Sunglasses

Here’s a fun deal at Saks Off 5th: get one pair of sunglasses (like these great Miu Miu ones) for yourself and a pair of half-off sunnies for a friend.

Vizio SB3820-C6 38-Inch 2.0 Channel Sound Bar
Birkenstock Boston Slip-On Clogs

We’re ending things with two (very different) metallic shoes. First up, some rarely-on-sale Birkenstock Boston clogs.

Loeffler Randall Tilly Leather Wedge Sandals

And, finally, these Loeffler Randall party slides.
