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.
In this, our weekly deep dive into the internet’s collective sales bins, we found some collectible Marc Jacobs, a Missoni-esque bath towel, some extremely reasonably priced Levi’s jeans, and a very good Valentine’s Day gift.
If you’ve been considering dipping a toe into the world of grown-up, fitted overalls, now is a good time, as these classics from Madewell are an extra 30 percent off their sale price.
A “blissfully” soft jersey robe from Natori in a very pleasing shade of blue-gray.
There are some very good discounts on Levi’s jeans at Zappos, of all places. These cropped jeans have just a bit of stretch to them.
A very non-Levi’s-looking pair of Levi’s.
Also, we did not realize that you could buy J. Crew at Zappos. This quilted jacket is made with Primaloft filling that’s spun from recycled plastic bottles.
It would be an oversight not to remind you that Everlane added new things to its Choose What You Pay sale, including this button-up cashmere mock-neck sweater.
In addition to classic navy, this “varsity” cashmere cardigan is available in four other colors.
We like this fuzzy sweater’s wide but thick neckline.
This sweater is made from cotton, wool, and linen — a little bit of something for everyone.
There is something very fashion-forward about this (machine-washable!) tunic that was made specially for Macy’s.
Speaking of fashion-forward, this Lacoste towel is very Missoni Home.
A Strategist favorite, in a lovely shade of “deep plum,” that would make a nice Valentine’s Day gift for a frequent traveler.
As we noted earlier this week, Entireworld is having a big sale where most everything is 25 percent off, including this dreamy yellow (but not too yellow) sweatshirt.
The description of these corduroys deserves an ASME award: “A nice fitted fit and a little high-waisted for a tuck with just the slightest boot kick at the bottom because this isn’t your first rodeo, ya know?… You are a v self-assured Koala, reading Heidegger, driving a Citröen.”
The marled gray-and-white trim elevate this otherwise humdrum hoodie into something a little more special.
We had a “Snuffles” bear as a child, and his name was Splat!
This tote from Marc Jacobs’s 2018 Redux Grunge collection may actually be worth something someday.
For a slightly less bold statement, these platform boots are also available in plain black.
Trigger Point foam rollers are really considered the foam rollers of record, and this little guy (who won’t take up much room at all in the apartment) is the cheapest we’ve seen it.
It’s no iPad, obviously, but if you’re looking for something for the kids to watch Daniel Tiger on, and to take with you on vacation, this tablet (with a detatchable keyboard) will do the job.
Woolrich makes a high-quality sock and there are loads of them on sale at Nordstrom Rack right now.
This plus-size Barbour Annandale jacket is a whopping 61 percent off.
In addition to the back massager we wrote about for the Deal of the Day, this Shiatsu foot massager, which makes a really nice Valentine’s Day gift for anyone in your life who spends a lot of time on his or her feet, is on sale.
