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.

$60

Outdoor Voices is having its biannual OV Extra Sale, for which the brand’s rarely discounted athletic-wear is now up to 50 percent off — like these leggings meant for extra-sweaty workouts, which are now $15 less.

This pair of the brand’s beloved Warmup Leggings in a lovely shade of lilac is a mere $37.

Already on-sale items at Anthropologie are currently an extra 40 percent off, bringing the price of this timeless sherpa-lined jacket down to $72. Note that the full sale price only shows after you add items to your cart.

$36

This cozy plaid wrap could double as a nice office blanket.

Just some overalls that you’ll want to wear every weekend.

BHLDN Paper Flower Garland
$48
$48

A pretty, not-overly-twee garland that would brighten up any party or room.

$165

Everlane’s annual winter Choose What You Pay Sale is still going on, with a wide selection of the brand’s goods on sale. These pointy black heeled ankle boots would look as sharp with a skirt and tights as they would with a pair of Levi’s.

Everlane The Cashmere V-Neck
$65
$65

$65 for Everlane cashmere is an insanely good deal.

Everlane The Trainer
$59
$59

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.

Layer this ribbed cotton sweater in the winter, or wear it alone in the spring. It’s part of an ongoing Final Sale at Everlane (which, we should note, means no returns or exchanges).

$35

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.

$34

And, for men, these (now very inexpensive) straight-fit jeans, which also come in dark indigo, “mid-blue,” black, and dark blue.

Everlane The ‘90s Flat
$75
$75

The Everlane Final Sale also includes a few pairs of shoes, including these neutral, wear-’em-with-anything flats for half off. Also included: an almost-as-versatile pair of heels.

The first step to keeping that New Year’s resolution to cook more might be getting some new sauté pans. This set, now almost 30 percent off at Nordstrom, seems like a good place to start.

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).

$26

This handsome (and more than 60 percent off) tartan Barbour umbrella is part of Saks’ big end-of-season sale.

As part of that sale, select colors of Saks’ crewneck cashmere sweaters are now 70 percent off, including this lovely raspberry shade.

$32

Over at Macy’s 48-hour sale, a pair of very warm and classic-looking snow boots can be yours for $32.

$140

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.

We imagine these ultraflattering, under-$60 Alex Mill jeans — part of Net-a-Porter’s end-of-season sale — quickly becoming a go-to pair.

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.

Perhaps you’ve been meaning to replace your worn-out leather wallet. This classic black leather A.P.C. one — which is part of Mr Porter’s up-to-half-off sale — should do the trick.

A pair of Carhartt pants that will go with everything, now 40 percent off.

Some half-price pants from a new Tokyo-based brand that trend forecasters told us would be ultrapopular this season.

Mr P. Checked Wool Overcoat
$518
$518

It’s still a splurge, but this 50 percent off wool overcoat is timeless and elegant enough to wear for seasons to come.

Sale items are an extra 40 percent off at Madewell, meaning that some of our favorites from this season — like this fleece half-zip — are now at the lowest price we’ve seen them.

Madewell The Allie Boot
$138

This pair of knee-high black leather boots will look even better once they’re worn in a bit.

There’s something very glam about the shape and pale green-and-pink color scheme of these Madewell x Karen Walker sunglasses.

The pair of cropped, drawstring-waist Lululemon pants that author Lauren Weisberger can’t live without is now more than 30 percent off.

Consider these lemony cords the SAD lamp of winter pants.

$104

Lots of designer denim are also on sale at Need Supply — we rounded up the best of it here — including this everyday pair of Acne jeans.

An almost 70 percent off Comme des Garçons cardigan, in an eye-catching shade of red? Count us in.
