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 the week winds down before the long weekend, we’ve noticed that the fall-ready sales are picking up. We unearthed great deals on cold-weather gear, covetable holiday gifts, and cozy home goods. (And if you want even more deals sent straight to your inbox, sign up for our email newsletter.)
Over at REI, you can snag this breathable, layer-friendly rain jacket from the North Face at a deep discount.
Madewell is taking 20 percent off tees and sweats with the code RELAX. You can do just that in this henley made with soft organic cotton and recycled polyester.
We also spotted this cozy pull-on jumpsuit that would look nice layered with a tee …
… or with this striped turtleneck on cooler days.
If you’re still brushing your teeth with a manual toothbrush, today is a great day for an upgrade. This Sonicare toothbrush is widely used by members of our staff, and is a favorite among dentists and dental hygienists.
When we consulted experts about toys that are expected to sell out, they told us that these LOL Surprise Dolls are “incredibly popular and highly collectible among kids ages 5 and up.” Grab them while they’re still in stock and on sale.
Serve up holiday drinks in these cheap but expensive-looking bubble-glass goblets. You can purchase a set of four for $36 or mix and match colors by buying individual ones for $9.
Bloomingdale’s Friends and Family sale is in full swing, with 25 percent off lots of in-season items. Use the discount toward this already decently priced A.P.C. wool button-down.
Another sale on sale: Take more than 60 percent off this sage shacket.
These Bose Bluetooth sunglasses — which feature decent speakers for listening to music and a microphone for taking calls — would make for an excellent gift for both a harried New Yorker and anyone about to go on a beach vacation.
Or, if you’re looking for a comfy spot for your dog, here’s an option for less than $50 with free shipping.
