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.
The holidays have finally, officially passed, which means one thing, shopping-wise: Winter sales are really in full force. Many retailers’ post-Christmas sales that began last week are continuing apace, while others have begun offering new discounts now that January is here. If you didn’t receive that new pair of sneakers or cashmere sweater or comfy leggings you hoped for, don’t fret: In this week’s Friday Sales roundup, we leaned a bit heavily into all the good deals on clothing — including some rarely discounted Outdoor Voices leggings, black leather ankle boots from Everlane, and an almost 70 percent off Comme des Garçons sweater. But we also found a handful of other well-priced things for the home and the kids, too.
This pair of the brand’s beloved Warmup Leggings in a lovely shade of lilac is a mere $37.
This cozy plaid wrap could double as a nice office blanket.
Just some overalls that you’ll want to wear every weekend.
A pretty, not-overly-twee garland that would brighten up any party or room.
$65 for Everlane cashmere is an insanely good deal.
An appealingly nondescript pair of sneakers for less than $60.
Another cozy cashmere sweater that we could see being the type of wardrobe staple one wears several times a week.
A structured, cozy, weekend-or-weekday-appropriate fleece, for less than $40.
Also on final sale is this rather unheard-of deal: $35 for a full-zip Everlane fleece with what we think is a rather appealing little collar.
And, for men, these (now very inexpensive) straight-fit jeans, which also come in dark indigo, “mid-blue,” black, and dark blue.
Also part of Nordstrom’s end-of-season sale is this classic North Face fleece for kids.
Pair that black-and-white fleece with this adorable citrus-colored Peanuts hat-and-glove set.
If you didn’t get to take advantage of our recent Deal of the Day on Sorel boots, Backcountry is now offering 25 percent off on lots of the brand’s footwear, including this pair of waterproof hiking boots that would be ideal for your next upstate weekend (or for trudging around the city).
As part of that sale, select colors of Saks’ crewneck cashmere sweaters are now 70 percent off, including this lovely raspberry shade.
Stand out in the sea of teddy coats in an emerald-green teddy coat (which, we should mention, has some very nice deep pockets).
Speaking of half-price, practical, black leather bags: We’re big fans of this cross-body one.
And if you’re in the market for a bucket: This creamy, delightfully rotund fellow is also now half off.
If you’re headed anywhere warm this winter, this pair of 60 percent off See by Chloé espadrilles will come in handy. And if you’re not, buy them now for next summer, when similar styles will cost a lot more.
Half-price Sophie Buhai jewelry: rare indeed.
One of our favorite silk shirts, for almost $100 less than usual.
A pair of Carhartt pants that will go with everything, now 40 percent off.
It’s still a splurge, but this 50 percent off wool overcoat is timeless and elegant enough to wear for seasons to come.
This pair of knee-high black leather boots will look even better once they’re worn in a bit.
A cheery bag from Barcelona-based brand Paloma Wool, now at 70 percent off.
There’s something very glam about the shape and pale green-and-pink color scheme of these Madewell x Karen Walker sunglasses.
Need Supply is offering 20 percent off sitewide, including on sale items, which brings the price of these snake-print Mary Janes down to less than $90.
A cheery blue Workaday Handmade casserole dish that you can also break out (to cook dinner) on your next freezing night in.
This blue-gray cropped sweater reminds us a bit of something you’d see at Acne — except with a much more budget-friendly price tag.
Consider these lemony cords the SAD lamp of winter pants.
An almost 70 percent off Comme des Garçons cardigan, in an eye-catching shade of red? Count us in.
There is no such thing as owning too many wool scarves. This simple, navy fringed one from Norse Projects seems a steal at nearly 70 percent off.
An unbelievable price for Rachel Comey earrings.
