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 on things we’ve written about before. There’s some best-selling sunscreen beloved by dermatologists, a roll-on deodorant that smells like a “sexy campfire,” and one decorator’s favorite “super-sturdy” dining chairs for small spaces. (And if you want even more deals sent straight to your inbox, sign up for our email newsletter.)
Exclusively for Strategist readers, Outdoor Voices is offering 25 percent off its entire CloudKnit collection with CLOUD25. That includes its All Day long-sleeved top, which one reviewer says is the “the softest shirt I’ve ever owned.”
An excellent deal on a half-moon zip-top shoulder bag from Kate Spade.
For those of us channeling Princess Diana this fall, these compressive bike shorts have a flattering V-shaped waist and a not-too-long 4-inch inseam.
For a limited time, West Elm is taking 40 percent off select fall bedding, like this chunky cotton throw blanket — an excellent gift, we think, for the friend or partner who’s always cold. It’s available in white, tan, olive green, and the charcoal gray shown.
West Elm is also taking 30 percent off select rugs, such as this hefty (yet stylish) wool-jute runner.
Design Within Reach is offering free shipping and up to 15 percent off some of its best-selling items, including these poppy-red spindle-style dining chairs. They’ve got a “relatively small footprint for a hardwood dining chair but still feel super-sturdy,” one small-space-design expert told us. Plus they match with a variety of decorating styles.
Levi’s calls this cotton crewneck a “T-shirt,” though our eyes tell us it’s a sweatshirt. Regardless, it’s an extra 40 percent off with code SPOOKY40 through the weekend.
With code FRIEND, you can take an extra 15 percent off this already-discounted brow set from Anastasia Beverly Hills. It comes with two Brow Wiz pencils — a favorite of Strategist beauty columnist Rio Viera-Newton for natural-looking brows — and a clear brow gel.
Not only do ceramic knives hold their edge well, these ones come with their own covers for safer storage.
Unlike most under-$100 chain bracelets we see, this one is solid sterling silver. (And with code HEADSTART, it’s an extra 40 percent off over at Carbon38.)
Finally, all Colorescience cosmetics are 25 percent off over at Dermstore with code COLORE25, including the brush-on sunscreen one dermatologist keeps in her car “to reapply to my face, décolletage, and the back of my hands throughout the day.”
