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.
This week was a doozy when it came to sales (Need Supply, Everlane, and Bandier had major ones). So we thought it might be useful for those who don’t follow our deals coverage with a fine-tooth comb to pepper in some goodies from those sales here, in addition to providing you with brand-spanking new ones.
And, now, a few things we missed from the Need Supply sale, like this Carhartt WIP beanie.
And, lastly, a Kush candle from status candle line Boy Smells.
There’s a sweater sale afoot at Urban Outfitters, and our favorite of the batch is this slouchy, oversize turtleneck from J.O.A.
The silicone ice tray that interior designer Rita Konig can’t live without (and which she shared with our new sister site in the U.K.)
This botanic-garden-themed porcelain measuring-spoon set from Portmeirion would make a great gift for a mom or a hostess.
Some huggie hoop earrings from Melbourne-based jewelry line Two Hills. (They are also available in silver.) Incidentally, all things on sale at Anthropologie are an extra 25 percent off.
This paisley duvet cover is a collaboration between Anthropologie and L.A. designer Natalia Gemma.
We deemed these the best wool slippers.
Some hiking sneakers just in time for fall upstate-day-trip season.
We covered the Everlane sale earlier this week and wanted to note that this cotton crew neck is still available in multiple sizes (and is still 20 percent off).
We were poking through the Amazon outlet and found this aden + anais swaddle set that’s 46 percent off (and would make a great baby shower gift).
We’ve never really thought to investigate the Birchbox sales bin, but turns out there are some real gems in there, like this “Workout and Go Hair Kit,” that features (among other things) a travel-sized R&Co. shampoo and conditioner, Invisibobble hair ties, a Baggu tote, and a Number 4 brush. Not on sale it’s $38 (already a good deal since the whole shebang has a retail value of $122), but it’s an extra 30 percent off (no code needed).
There’s also this sparkly YSL mascara that’s meant to coat “your lashes with just a hint of sophisticated shimmer to make your eyes pop.”
We wrote about a different pair of Ugg slippers on sale earlier this week, but if you’re not a pink person, might we suggest these black loafers that are also 50 percent off?
Everything on sale at Madewell is an extra 30 percent off with the code BESTNEWS, like these stylish but very practical rain boots.
In other fleece news, this one which we featured in yesterday’s edition of Don’t Dillydally is still 40 percent off.
We recently chatted with toy experts to figure out what is going to sell out around the holidays, and they all said that while L.O.L. Surprise! toys aren’t new to the scene, they are still super-popular, so you really never know. A whole slew of them are on sale at Amazon today.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels.
