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 week’s roundup of the best deals, we’ve found some fuzzy Patagonia fleeces for both adults and toddlers, on-sale Everlane cashmere, a Martha Stewart–approved Dutch oven, and even some live succulents from Amazon that are 20 percent off (and will help liven up these gray February days).
The wool (not shearling!) cuffs on these slippers roll up to become booties, in case your ankles get cold.
Here’s a good sale-on-sale situation: Use the code REALDEAL to get an extra 30 percent off on this flowy blouse at Madewell.
According to Pendleton, this Tucson blanket is “robe-size,” meaning it’s ideal for wrapping yourself up in front of the campfire or (more realistically) the TV.
There’s a bunch of plants on sale at Amazon today, including this surprisingly cheerful set of miniature succulents.
This houseplant could be a nice Valentine’s Day gift for the Sig. Oh, who doesn’t like fresh flowers?
A bit like a mullet, this yoga top from Lululemon’s collaboration with Roksanda is technical-looking from the front and fully fashion from the back.
And if you’re sick of your silver cookware, here’s a hunter-green roasting pan that looks nice enough to bring out to the table when it’s time to serve dinner.
According to writer Laura Perciasepe, who penned an ode to this Eileen Fisher top back in 2016, “it goes with skinny jeans, with wide-legged pants, with wrap skirts, with linen shorts, at a cocktail party, at a work presentation, at a weekend barbecue, at family reunions, in Williamsburg, in Washington, D.C.” And right now, it’s more than half off, in case you needed another reason to buy.
This Everlane jumpsuit, made of drapey, wrinkle-resistant GoWeave fabric, is the cheapest we’ve ever seen.
So this is technically a holiday-themed Dutch oven, with a fir tree embossed on the lid. But the emerald-green enamel is so eye-catching — and the price is so good — that we’re choosing to overlook that detail.
If you’re going to leave a blender out on your countertop, it might as well be a very stylish blender.
These are kind of the ideal pants for transitional winter-to-spring weather: The high-waisted, wide-legged, and cropped silhouette is just right for baring your ankles — but it’s all made of corduroy.
These high-waisted pants from Free People have a real equestrian feel (and look like leggings you could easily wear to the office or even out on the town).
We only recently realized that Walmart sells premium beauty, like NARS makeup and this Paul Mitchell shampoo and conditioner, so we’re especially excited to see that it goes on sale, too.
For just $7, you can be the kind of person who wears a camo-print bum bag from Puma.
And you can also be the kind of person who wears an oversize tiger-print blazer from Rachel Comey over a white T-shirt and jeans when that blazer is 75 percent off.
At $525, this parka still isn’t exactly cheap, but Woolrich is a heritage brand that’s been making jackets since 1820, so it will last many winters to come.
If those cashmere sweatpants seemed too fancy for lounging, here are some good old-fashioned (and ultrasoft cotton) sweatpants from Urban Outfitters, complete with elastic cuffs at the ankles and a drawstring waistband.
This white, red, and blue Patagonia fleece is the one senior editor Anthony Rotunno wears around the office (though he did not buy his on sale).
