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.
As we finish off the week, settling into a new kind of mostly homebound normal, we thought it’d be nice to highlight items from the internet sales bin that will make your life a little more comfortable and maybe even bring you some joy in these uncertain times. And our task was made especially easy since so many merchants — including Nordstrom, Anthropologie, Need Supply, and even Clare V. — are offering sitewide sales right now.
At Backcountry, you can take 20 percent off any one full-price item with the code 20FULLPRICE, including these Patagonia Baggies, which are ideal for warmer weather lounging.
Or, you can take 20 percent off these Teva moccasins, in case you need new padding-around-the-house shoes (that you can also wear to take out the trash or pick up the mail).
Today, we also learned that Ugg — of the comfy, shearling-lined boot — also makes jersey pajamas, which also look exceedingly comfortable.
These (conveniently antimicrobial) bath towels from Lauren Ralph Lauren are on sale at Macy’s.
Even with a 15 percent discount, this SK-II essence isn’t exactly a bargain, but this K-beauty staple has a cult-y following because of the way it makes skin looks plump, hydrated, and glowy. (It’s also a pick from Rio’s original Google Doc.)
Tavi Gevinson uses this face mist from Mario Badescu as a way to hit a reset button before performances, and it might be a nice, refreshing break from staring at a computer screen all day.
This already-on-sale Roomba is an extra 10 percent off with the code VIP.
For the man who’s tired of wearing the same, old gray sweatpants for the last week, here are some colorful joggers from Nike.
Anthropologie is also having a sitewide sale. (Head’s up: The discount is applied at checkout.) This jersey maxi dress is a nice around-the-house look.
If you’re looking to really up your skin-care routine during this time in self-isolation, here’s a duo of Sunday Riley products: First is Good Genes, which exfoliates and smooths skin, followed by Luna, a super-hydrating night oil.
If you want to turn a regular TV into a smart TV, here’s an on-sale Roku streaming stick. Just plug it in, log into your accounts, and start watching Apple TV+, Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+, and more.
If you want to do more letter-writing now that you’ve got a bit of free time on your hands, here’s a lovely set of postcards from Poketo.
Zhuzh your at-home desk with this light from A+R, a design store in San Francisco, that’s rarely on sale.
Speaking of rarely on-sale, Clare V. is having a sitewide sale, with 25 percent off everything including their fanny packs, a mainstay of cool, L.A. women.
Finally, a couple of picks from Need Supply’s sitewide sale, starting with this handsome French press from Yield if you’re in need of some caffeine.
