31 Things on Sale You’ll Actually Want to Buy: From Le Creuset to Carhartt

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.

We found some excellent deals this week — if we do say so ourselves. Allow us to present you with a $9 Lululemon bra, a $10 Martha Stewart-designed pillow, and some purple Uggs we can’t stop thinking about.

Lululemon Pace Breaker Short 9" Liner

For some reason right now the deals at Lululemon are particularly good. There’s the vest we wrote about in yesterday’s sales roundup, and then, also for men, these shorts “for pretty much everything” that come in a very pleasing shade of Sequoia.

Lululemon Simply Gathered Bralette B/C Cup

And then there’s this $9 (!) bralette that many reviewers loved so much they’ve ended up buying it in multiple colors.

Lululemon Essential High-Rise Trouser

We were so taken with one particularly effusive review, we decided to post it in full here: “I bought these pants in every color. And not only would I recommend them to a friend, I have recommended them to several friends already. Here’s what I love: 1) I have proportionally larger hips compared to my waist — most pants (even in a “curvy” fit) don’t really sit right. These are fitted on my waist but roomy in the hips. 2) Aforementioned roominess in the hips is perfect for me for work. I really don’t want to draw attention to my butt in a professional setting. These are flattering and comfortable but not attention-calling. 3) I travel a lot for work and love that these don’t wrinkle in my suitcase or after sitting on a plane for a few hours. I normally wear an 8 in Lululemon shorts to get the leg/hip size right. I bought these in a 6.”

Circus by Sam Edelman Cumberland Bootie

These 73 percent off chunky boots are available in several other colors, too.

Whim by Martha Stewart Collection Elephant 18" x 18" Decorative Pillow

When we see something for 88 percent off — particularly if it’s a pillow adorned with two sweet-looking elephants — we feel it’s our Strategist editor duty to alert you all.

Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron 10.25" Square Grill Pan

We are generally wary of Le Creuset deals due to inflated list prices — but this grill pan is actually a good deal. While the list price here appears to be incorrect (it says $260, but the pan seems to normally cost $180), the cheapest it is anywhere else is $144 at Sur La Table.

Slip Silk Scrunchies Skinnies - Black/Black & White Leopard Print (6 piece)

If your New Year’s resolution was to be kinder to your hair, a nice place to start is with a gentle, silk scrunchie. On sale, this six-piece set from Slip works out to five bucks a tie.

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette

There is extremely cheap makeup for sale at Nordstrom Rack right now, and we will start our tour through the madness with some eye-shadow palettes. This set apparently includes “eight otherworldly new shades of planet Earth’s sparkliest shadow.”

Bobbi Brown Night Drama Eyeshadow Palette

This 12-shade Bobbi Brown palette offers a slightly more muted look, with matte, shimmer, and metallic colors.

Laura Mercier Luster Eyeshadow Color - Gold Dust

And something for whom choice is too overwhelming.

Lancome Teint Idole Stick Blush

In non-eye-shadow news, this “blush-bomb stick” from Lancome (that comes in several shades) offers a natural glow with “a single swipe.”

Patagonia Fisherman Beanie

From regular Nordstrom, a cheerful cherry-red Patagonia beanie.

The North Face ThermoBall Traction Water Resistant Slipper

Puffers for your feet courtesy of the North Face.

The North Face Sierra Water-Repellent Down Parka

This serious North Face parka we featured earlier this week in a North Face jacket sales roundup is still on sale, and still available in lots of sizes.

Ugg Classic Mini II Genuine Shearling Lined Boot, Violet Bloom Suede

At first glance, we weren’t sure about these bright purple Uggs. But after staring at them for a while we are maybe … obsessed?

Uppababy Cruz 2018 Aluminum Frame Stroller

It’s rare to see an Uppababy Cruz — the official stroller of bougie Brooklyn — on sale.

Topshop Long Sleeve Belted Floral Midi Dress

We would describe this as a “winter floral” dress.

Patagonia Dusty Mesa Vest - Women's

For this particularly fuzzy moment we’re in.

Carhartt WIP Beaufort Fleece Jacket

In related news, there’s this Carhartt fleece with a groovy reflective logo.

Herschel Supply Co. Ultralight Duffle Bag

This Herschel Supply Co. duffle has flavors of Patagonia and Marmot to it.

Eloquii Ruffle Flare Sleeve Dress

The sleeves on this dress are fantastic, and reviewers note that it’s warm enough to wear in the winter.

Madewell Silk Midi Slip Skirt in Tiger Stripe

A few more nuggets from Madewell, where (as we noted yesterday), stuff on sale is an extra 30 percent off. Could the tiger stripe midi skirt be 2020’s answer to the leopard-print midi skirt of 2019?

$69 at Madewell
with code: REALDEAL
Madewell Cali Demi-Boot Jeans in Bellspring Wash: Button-Front Edition

We own these high-waisted cropped jeans, and can vouch for how comfortable they are (for high-waisted jeans).

$84 at Madewell
with code: REALDEAL
Madewell Textured Blazer Sweater Jacket

Is it a bleater? A sweazer? A swacket? Either way, we can think of many ways one can wear this.

$98 at Madewell
with code: REALDEAL
Schoolhouse Electric Blue Linen Duvet Cover, Full/Queen

Schoolhouse Electric, the one home goods site that really makes us sigh with envy while scrolling through its wares, is having a bedding sale. From the images of it “in situ,” this blue linen duvet is actually a bit more cobalt-y than it looks up above.

Silent D Cabre Boots

Good-old Anthropologie never lets us down with a sale-on-sale. Right now, everything in the sale section is an extra 50 percent off, including these sultry, snake-patterned, slightly pink ankle boots.

Citizens of Humanity Eva Cropped High-Rise Wide-Leg Jeans

These cropped jeans would actually look nice with some Blundstones.

Current/Elliott Studio 338 Printed Cotton Top

We have a tiger skirt, and snake-print shoes, now, may us present a zebra-striped blouse from Current/Elliott.

Toshiba 32-inch 720p HD Smart LED TV - Fire TV Edition

If you need something to watch the Super Bowl with … $130 for a 32-inch smart LED TV isn’t too shabby.

NEED Shepherd Cardigan in Clay

Everything on sale at Need Supply is an extra 30 percent off with the code TAKE30. The “faux horn” buttons on this slouchy rusty-red cardigan are a nice touch.

$59 at Need Supply Co.
with code: EXTRA30
H&M 2-Pack Guest Towels

If someone said to us, “quick, where are these beatle-adorned hand towels from?” H&M would definitely not be our first guess.
