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 made it to the end of another week, so it’s time to kick up your heels and peruse the selection of excellent deals I’ve unearthed after spending a redacted amount of time sifting through the internet’s sales bins. Below, you’ll find Strategist-beloved Bluetooth speakers, a Star Wars figurine set, and a Y2K-inspired French press from Paris Hilton’s line of homewares. Plus, Kate Spade is having a sale-on-sale event this weekend, and the clearance sections at ColourPop, REI, and Net-a-Porter are surprisingly vast. As always, make sure to sign up for our email newsletter for even more sales coverage.
But if you don’t mind shelling out an extra $20, you can’t go wrong with our best-in-class pick. The waterproof and dustproof Clip 4 is “incredibly durable,” according to former Strategist tech writer Jordan Bowman, and has rubber ribs that help it stay in place on smooth surfaces.
For the little ones, this reversible and faux-fur-lined jacket from The North Face is 30 percent off at Nordstrom. The graphic print is very sweet, but it’s on sale in basic black too.
We also spied some spicy Salomons for less than $200, which are available in men’s sizes 7 through 13.
Yes, Parachute’s sale section is a great place to find discounts on the brand’s bedding in seasonal colors, but it also has high-curated home décor. I think this sculptural, unglazed candlestick from Los Angeles–based ceramicist Madeleine Pellegran would make a dreamy addition to your dining room tabletop.
These Outdoor Voices shorts are like a windbreaker for your legs — and they have pockets, too!
For something that’s a bit retro, pick up these track shorts from J.Crew’s collaboration with Tracksmith. These come in chocolate brown and bubblegum pink too, but those colorways only go up through size medium.
Full-price apparel at J.Crew is 25 percent off with the code GOSHOP through February 28. These stretchy cotton-twill pants walk the line between chinos and jeans and come in six colors, from sage green to robin’s-egg blue.
Here’s a very deep discount for the Star Wars fans. This set includes five figurines — Rey, Chewbacca, Hondo Ohnaka, and two Porg figures — and accessories to match.
Net-a-Porter’s sale section continues to have excellent deals on designer apparel. This Ganni wrap dress would look nice paired with sneakers or even as a swimsuit cover-up this summer.
Two of West Elm’s dried bouquets from its collaboration with florist Ryan Norville — who owns the Brooklyn–based floral studio Oat Cinnamon — are on sale. Now the price of a fresh bunch of flowers, you can keep this eucalyptus and palm-leaf one all year long.
I love these salad plates embossed with a sweet rabbit and floral motif; they work for Easter, belated Lunar New Year celebrations, and bunny lovers alike.
Make your margaritas look mixologist-level good with this set of handcrafted stemware made from recycled glass.
Already-on-sale apparel, jewelry, and handbags from Kate Spade are an extra 20 percent off with the code SAVE20 through Sunday night. This slim cross-body purse fits all your going-out essentials — phone, keys, wallet — and is available in four colors.
The clearance section at ColourPop is incredible right now. This trio of fruit-flavored lip balms from the brand’s collaboration with Hello Kitty includes Hello Fruity, a warm fuchsia; Tropic Cute, a pinky coral; and Fun in the Sun, a peachy nude.
Because it is Pisces season, after all.
