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.
We’re prepping for the long weekend with a deep dive into the internet’s sales bins. There’s still lots of good deals to be had over at Target’s Deal Days event, but that ends tomorrow, Saturday, October 8. So scratch that shopping itch with some selections from Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters, and Ulta, and even some early deals from Amazon’s upcoming Prime Early Access sale, which starts on Tuesday.
The entire sale section at Urban Outfitters is offering an extra 40 percent off through Sunday, making this baseball cap only $6.
There’s also this Yamazaki Home–esque clothing rack to display your winter coats.
Or this family-game-night-friendly puzzle that’s just $9.
This incredibly cute version of Amazon’s Echo Dot is 60 percent off.
It’s rare to find Dr. Martens on sale — let alone 1460s for just $99.
Some chunky, Prada-esque mary jane loafers from Sam Edelman.
If the temperature has dipped below 60 degrees, it’s time to break out the corduroy — and this versatile button-up can be worn on its own or layered over a T-shirt.
And some work-appropriate — but not fusty — chinos to go with ’em.
Target’s Deal Days event will be going strong through Saturday, October 8. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite deals here, but we wanted to call out a few of our favorites — starting with this paisley-embossed quilt that’s available in five different colors.
Our favorite set of less expensive pajamas is even cheaper, thanks to a 40 percent discount.
Our favorite coil-style hair ties from Invisibobble are half-price today for Ulta’s Gorgeous Hair sales event. It “leaves no dents or bumps in your hair, is comfortable to sleep in, and is durable enough to hold any texture,” according to Andrew Fitzsimons, a stylist in New York.
