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.

Columbus Day isn’t until Monday, but we’ve compiled some of the best sales that have already begun, even if they’re not being called “Columbus Day sales.” Many sites are having Friends & Family sales until Monday, October 8, like Dermstore, Bloomingdale’s, and Saks Fifth Avenue, and still others are having fall sales through the weekend as well. Below, the 40-plus things we found, including some Marc Jacobs leather cross-body bags, J.Crew wool coats, DVF wrap dresses, and Smythson leather journals.

There’s something blazer-esque about this double-breasted topcoat — we especially love the contrasting buttons.

The crème de la crème of notebooks, now nearly 60 bucks cheaper. (It comes in black, too, and there are lots of other Smythson leather goods on sale at Saks, too, until Monday.)

A candle that smells like Champagne and would look just great as a pencil holder once you’re finished. Great hostess gift, too.

The athletic sneaker of the moment — we have them and they’re light as air.

A deeply hued, slightly oversize wool coat that, if you squint hard enough, is almost Philo-era Celine.

A punchy little scarf to kick up your somber fall wardrobe.

Everything already on sale at Urban Outfitters is a further 30 percent off the price shown (yes, a sale-on-sale) until Monday, October 8.

A DVF wrap dress that looks like a DVF wrap dress from a mile away.

There’s a double slit on the hemline of this bias dress.

A slightly stretchy dress with repeating leaf pattern.

We love how the subtle tonal differences add dimension to a rather simple vertically striped dress.

If you can’t keep even a cactus alive, maybe just stick to a painted version on your shower curtain.

Our absolute favorite sofa-in-a-box (it even has USB chargers for your devices tucked between the cushions) for a hundred bucks off.

Are you looking for a vacuum that costs as much as two lunch salads?

And if you only have room for a hand vacuum, there’s always this tiny dust-buster. Note that only the white version is on sale for $20 (you’ll have to click over).

A sleek leather bootie that looks much more expensive than it is.

Can’t you just picture this LED lamp in the corner of Le Turtle?

The only name in stand mixers for serious bakers — and we’ve never seen it this cheap.

We’re a sucker for a leopard mule — it takes a plain jean and T-shirt to a dressed-up place.

Easy, effortless, and flattering: classic Eileen Fisher.

A surprisingly sentimental painting of a dachshund on a dish towel — for the dog fanatic in your life.

We love the metallic sheen on this packable raincoat.

The legendary Frette bath towel at a not-so-legendary price.

An adorable (affordable) baby blanket adorned with alpacas — perfect for when you’re stumped at a baby shower or 1-year-old’s birthday party.

We always wanted to be one of those people who could say, “Take a seat on the pouf.”

A pretty little planter to rest your fake anthurium.

We love the cozy pink stripes on this (highly discounted) peach duvet cover.

Just a little reminder that the Cosrx snail mucin essence isn’t the only thing on sale at Dermstore — so is Rio’s absolute favorite blackhead power liquid. She says: “Typically, when I break out, I break out in blackhead zits around my chin — this keeps that in check.”

And the Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Cream, of which she says, “It’s super rich and truly one of the only moisturizers that I’ve found that goes deep into my skin and keeps it happy and nourished all day long.”

Because everyone needs a slim blazer in the closet — we like the trim lapels and sleeves on this one.

A very expensive-looking khaki trench coat without too many bells and whistles.

We couldn’t believe the price on this fitted dress, either.

You know those autumn days when it can go from toasty to chilly without any warning? This would be perfect for then.

Stripes on a T-shirt transcend seasons.

There’s something so sweet and modest about the short sleeves on this dress.

A totally classic, well-proportioned jean jacket that will never have you in 20 years going, “What was I thinking in that?”

We happen to think the contrasting panels around the shoulders make this jacket.

Because you need these as much in December as you do in July.

The classic ugly shoe we won’t be able to convince you to get if you’re not already onboard — if you are, move fast, because there aren’t many sizes left.

A great exercise sneaker, and a great travel shoe, incidentally.

A very luxurious-looking down coat with a guilt-free faux-fur collar lining.

A fancy-pants bag that does away with all the pretension.

We love the pebbly quality on the leather of this wallet. It’s like a fanny pack for someone who doesn’t want to go full fanny pack.
