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.

A lot of summery sales this week: we dug up deals on everything from watermelon earrings to ice buckets to sunglasses to miniskirts to swim trunks to tricycles. Block Party Ice Bucket

It’s outdoor party season time (almost), and an ice bucket is a surprisingly useful thing to have (that you wouldn’t probably want to spend more than $24 on, to be honest).

Alber Elbaz x Lesportsac Violet Backpack

(Former Lanvin creative director) Alber Elbaz’s collaboration with LeSportsac features lots of kisses; from anyone else would seem a little too too, but from him feels just right.

Jonathan Adler Vodka Pop Candle

For the mom who appreciates a stiff drink: This vodka-scented candle from Jonathan Adler will give her a chuckle.

New Balance 574 Sport Suede Mesh Sneakers

These right here are some 2019 New Balances if we’ve ever seen some.

Current/Elliott Ultra High Waist Cropped High-Rise Skinny Jeans

They’d look pretty fabulous with these high-waisted pink cropped jeans from Current/Elliott.

Castaner Blaudell 6 Wedge Espadrilles

So too would these espadrille wedge sandals from Castaner.

Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow - Duo Chrome Shades - Sea Siren

This liquid eye shadow is for those looking to pull off that ’90s rave unicorn mermaid look.

Pendleton Sculpted Jacquard Spa Towel

A Pendleton bath towel will immediately freshen up even the bleakest of bathrooms.

Pendleton Canopy Canvas Super Tote

This Pendleton tote (made from cotton canvas with matte PVC coating) would make an excellent weekender or a diaper bag.

Susan Alexandra Watermelon Earrings

Some summer-y watermelon earrings from Susan Alexandra (who, incidentally, we wrote about earlier this week as she just released a Champion collab at Urban Outfitters).

Gorjana Irina Statement Hoop Earrings

For something a little more work-appropriate.

Eberjey Noor Cuff Robe

Mom doesn’t have to know that this Eberjey robe was 70 percent off.

Illesteva Lisbon Sunglasses

This is a very good price for Illesteva.

re:named Mariah Polka Dot Skirt

Wear them with your new $19 polka-dotted skirt.

Marni Small Keychain Bag in Astral Blue

This Marni keychain pouch is totally ridiculous but also deeply amazing.

Commando Stretch-Jersey Soft-Cup Triangle Bra

This comfy, stretchy bra comes courtesy of one of our favorite underthings lines, Commando. (There’s a bunch of Commando on sale at the Outnet for those interested in perusing.)

Smythson Panama Smooth and Textured-Leather Coin Purse

A sweet little heart-shaped change purse (but in black, which is a little — just a little —  punk) from Smythson.

3.1 Phillip Lim Cotton-Jersey T-Shirt

Not your regular ol’ ringer tee, from 3.1. Phillip Lim.

Ten Days of Tocca Ten-Piece Holiday Gift Set

Another gift for your mom that she doesn’t need to know all the nitty-gritty details about: This, a holiday gift set from Tocca, features ten travel-size goodies including hand creams, rollerball perfumes, and various mists.

Sahil Kochhar Sahara Floral Dress

If there are any spring or summer weddings on the horizon … and like everything in the Anthro sale bin, it’s an extra 25 percent off, which is applied at checkout.

Jeffrey Campbell Purdy Brown Heels

There is something just so pleasing about white-on-brown polka dots.

Lucky Brand Sakura Full/Queen Comforter Set

Truly no offense to Lucky Brand, but this Sakura comforter set does not look like it’s from Lucky Brand.

Free People Don’t Get Me Wrong Cotton Denim Skirt

It’s the big patch pockets that drew us to this black denim miniskirt. (And the fact that it’s 65 percent off.)

Free People Cotton Eisenhower Denim Jacket

A Bill Cunningham blue denim jacket, that’s also available in ivory and terra-cotta.

Coach Metallic Belt Bag in Pebble Leather

You can’t see it in this photo, but this Coach bag is actually a belt bag, a.k.a. a Fashion Fanny Pack.

Coach Devin Leather Shooties

Speaking of ridiculous names, these are called Coach “Shooties.” They actually are quite practical for spring.

Solid & Striped The Longboard Black Tech Trunks

Just a very nice, understated pair of navy swim trunks from Solid & Striped.

Veja V-12 Leather Sneakers

Also understated: This pair of men’s Veja sneaks.

Shedrain WindPro Auto Open & Close Umbrella

A pretty floral Shedrain WindPro, the Strategist’s third-favorite umbrella.

Native Shoes Zurich Vegan Sandal

These extremely comfortable-looking Native sandals have (dare we say) a touch of Marni about them.

Madewell x The New Denim Project Patchwork Cocoon Coat

This patchwork coat from Madewell is a collaboration with the New Denim Project.

Madewell Tapered Pants, Golden Pecan

Very into the “golden pecan” shade of these tapered Madewell pants, as well as the white stitching.

Radio Flyer, Classic Red Dual Deck Tricycle

What a classy-ass tricycle.

Nespresso VertuoPlus Coffee and Espresso Machine with Aeroccino Milk Frother

Popping this in here at the end, because the Nespresso Vertuoplus is on sale today (Friday) only. It’s available in other colors, but we love the white.
