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.
This week’s Friday sales roundup is a grab bag of in-season deals, including a pet-hair-busting vacuum cleaner, heat-wave-approved makeup, even a half-off cooling Serta mattress (and lots of things that would make thoughtful Father’s Day gifts).
Shopbop is offering an extra 25 percent off already-on-sale, so you can snag this ’90s-inspired, tortoiseshell-patterned fanny pack for under $10.
The same sale-on-sale is happening at Shopbop’s sibling site East Dane, where we found lots of Father’s Day gift contenders, like this Alex Mill tee in a coral-y pink.
And this faux foil stainless-steel flask, designed in Brooklyn.
To upgrade dad’s cycling game this Father’s Day, this nifty bike computer lets him navigate his ride, monitor stats, and race in real time using the Strava app.
For sleeping (and lounging, and working), a supersoft pajama jumpsuit from Eberjey from the Outnet’s reliably good sales section.
Macy’s is offering an extra 10 percent off select items with code SAVE, meaning this queen-size Serta mattress — complete with a layer of cooling-gel memory foam — is over half-off.
For the dad-slash-grillmaster, this 18-piece BBQ grill set has every pronged, wood-handled, heat-resistant tool he’ll ever need.
There’s lots of sale-on-sale beauty at Nordstrom Rack, including this shimmery Nars shadow that has a summery, warm yet pearlescent finish.
And this lightweight, heat-wave-friendly, demi-matte foundation, formulated with skin-saving peptides and antioxidants.
For the dad who fondly remembers seeing The Empire Strikes Back in theaters (or for the baby-Yoda-obsessed kiddos at home), this Chewbacca-edition Operation game will provide hours of indoor entertainment, and it’s part of a bigger sale on games at Amazon.
Verishop is having a sale on Hawkins New York dinnerware, including this highly Instagram-able stoneware bowl set.
If you want a full set, here’s a matching set of minimalist dinner plates.
A handsome, Italian-made, boar-bristle shave brush to add to Dad’s dopp kit.
To zhuzh up your WFH setup, here’s a portable, USB-powered desk lamp.
For a long-sleeve tee that’s a little fancier than normal but still just as comfortable, this one has a little detailing around the shoulders.
To go with the grilling tool set above, we think any carnivorous dad would appreciate this portable charcoal grill, fit for any and all road trips, boat outings, and beach jaunts.
Nordstrom just added a bunch of new in-season deals to its sale section, including these high-waist, summer-appropriate cropped leggings.
A highly giftable, supersoft throw blanket woven with baby-alpaca hair from Matouk — to buy now and use once the temperature drops again.
And finally, a picnic-ready, sleeping-bag-inspired blanket made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled material that’s also machine-washable.
