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.
The state of sales is excellent as we close out the week, with lots of deep discounts from brands we’ve written about before. There’s a Strategist-approved pet bed for dogs of all sizes, a refillable cleaning kit for a more sustainable kitchen, and an easy-to-store desk lamp that doubles as décor. (And if you want even more deals sent straight to your inbox, sign up for our email newsletter.)
Keep cards, cash, and change organized in this pastel-colored leather wallet from Marc Jacobs.
Chef favorite Misen just launched a pre-seasoned steel wok, designed to work with all kinds of cooktops. It won’t ship until February, but you can preorder at 30 percent off its full price until August 24. (We’re certain it’ll be well worth the wait.)
Carbon38 is taking an extra 40 percent off select sale items with code BYESUMMER, including this one-shoulder workout top in a summery apricot.
It’ll look even better with the matching leggings.
And this vintage-y halter top that’s still in stock in select petite and plus sizes.
Some tapered cargo pants for cooler temperatures ahead. (They’re on sale in white and navy, too.)
This outdoor picnic blanket folds up into a handy tote bag for easy carrying.
Roast meats, poultry, vegetables, and more with this nonstick ceramic roasting pan from GreenPan.
Classic Sanuk flip-flops for just $20.
This lightweight pullover (on sale in four fall-ready colors) is just begging to be layered with a jean jacket.
A Helmut Lang miniskirt for a decidedly non-Helmut-Lang price.
For just $25, you’ll be glad to have picked up this one-piece swimsuit for your last late-summer lake or beach trip.
Bed Bath & Beyond is taking 25 percent off select area rugs for a limited time. This handwoven jute one would look particularly handsome in your dining room or entryway.
And finally, it’s not the biggest discount, but Best Buy is offering $100 off this cordless vacuum from Dyson, our go-to vacuum-cleaner brand for people with pets.
