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 come up on one year of working and schooling and sitting home, we’re feeling a touch restless and ready for shed our puffer jackets for warmer weather — and after sifting through the internet’s sales bins, it seems like lots of other people are on the same page. We found generous discounts on new and in-season clothing for him or her or even your dog, as well as décor to make your home a bit brighter and outwear to take the chill off a still-not-quite-warm-enough evening. (And as always, for more sales coverage, sign up for our email newsletter.)
Let’s start at Madewell, where there’s a sale on dozens of new, spring styles with the code FAVES, including this lightweight cotton top.
There’s also a handful of picks from Madewell’s collaboration with Hedley & Bennett on-sale, like this bandana-printed pot holder.
We found a cache of Everlane staples on sale at Nordstrom Rack, including this cocoon coat in a classic camel that’s just the right weight for shoulder season.
The high-waisted, wide-leg cropped pants are another tried-and-true Everlane staple — here, in a light-washed, lightweight chino for warmer weather.
We’re approaching a year of widespread working from home, and if you still don’t have a proper place to sit, here’s a souped-up gaming chair (that’s also available with blue, white, red, or even bright green trim) that’ll be comfortable even for work calls.
Though Backcountry’s Winter Yard sale has been going on for the better part of a month, there’s still good deals to be found — like this Yeti Rambler bottle.
For a slightly sleeker pair of slippers, try these felted Mahabis with a bright-yellow sole.
This Timex watch — with a red-and-black timing bezel that gives it the name “Cola” — looks far more expensive than it is, especially at this sales price.
If you are still looking for a winter coat to keep you warm in this last stretch of cold weather, here’s a tailored, not-too-puffy puffer from Columbia.
After a year of cooking-from-home, and chopping onions with a steak knife, it might finally be time to get a grown-up set of kitchen knives, and this block from J.A. Henckels has everything you need, including a sharp, do-everything chef’s knife.
Our resident beauty writer Rio Viera-Newton has raved about Milk Makeup’s no-makeup-makeup products, and though this cream highlight looks blinding, it is buildable and easy to apply.
Take an extra 25 percent off select workout gear and activewear at Saks Off 5th with the code FITNESS — like these cushioned white running sneakers for her.
If you lean more toward the leisure end of athleisure, here are some subtle, pastel tie-dyed joggers.
It’s rare to find a simple-but-trendy Champion crewneck sweatshirt both on sale and available in just about all sizes — so don’t dillydally.
A Missoni-esque bath towel from The Company Store at a very not-Missoni price.
Over at Anthropologie, you can take an extra 25 percent off select sales items, including lots of in-season picks — like this tiered prairie dress that’s available in sizes XS to 2X.
Keep your dog dry from spring showers with this colorful anorak.
And finally, here’s a hanging rattan-wrapped mirror from CB2.
