Veterans Day is this Sunday, November 11, and while the holiday isn’t usually a sales bonanza, there are some retailers that are putting things on sale (
Macy’s in particular, with code VETS that gets you discounts on a wide range of stuff). This week, we found some great deals on everything from Clarks boots and Diane von Fürstenberg heels to J.Crew smoking slippers and Patagonia puffers. Plus: Comme des Garçons, Mario Badescu, Tory Burch, and Madewell.
Jolie by Edward Spiers Knee-length dress
They’re practically giving this dress away — we especially like the flouncy sleeves and uneven hem.
Clarks Men’s Bushacre 2 Chukka Boots
Clarks is known for having invented the suede, crepe-soled desert boots (a subset of chukkas), but these leather and rubber boots are even better for winter.
Diane von Furstenberg Violetta Heels
Some totally timeless and elegant black heels (they come in a nice
“cappuccino” shade, too).
Goodfulby AeroGarden Harvest Slim Countertop Garden & Gourmet Herbs Seed Kit
Have you been eyeing a countertop garden for growing your own basil and rosemary? This stylish one is now cheaper than we’ve ever seen, but if you want
something for $90, this chef-recommended one is also on sale.
Leith Trapezoid Faux Leather Tote
This $27 faux
leather tote looks much more expensive than it is. We love the color.
Columbia Men’s Steens Mountain Fleece
A good keep-it-in-the-backseat layer for those days when you haven’t prepared for the cold.
Parentesi Across-body bag
There’s a nice simplicity to this handbag; we like how the calfskin strap tucks into the metal hardware.
Hamilton Beach 0.7 cu ft Microwave Oven, Black
We didn’t think it was possible to get a brand-name
microwave for less than the price of two movie tickets.
Diane von Furstenberg Long Sleeve V Neck Flare Dress
A long-sleeved (if not long-hemmed) DVF dress that’s just crying out for a
pair of tights.
Jollene 113” 2-Pc. Sectional
We absolutely love the low profile on this sectional
sofa and can happily imagine plopping down on it right now. It’s now available at such a big discount, we almost wish we had an extra living room.
Uniqlo Women’s Blocktech Coat
A slightly oversized
raincoat with a cinch at the waist.
Madewell Delicate Glider Bangle Bracelet
Patagonia Chacabuco 28L Backpack
Perfect for men and women, outdoorsy and not.
NEST Fragrances Orange Blossom Scented Candle
We like the delicate smell and the even burn-quality on Nest candles by Laura Slatkin. They’re not quite
status candles, but they’re lovely.
J.Crew Smoking Slipper
As comfortable as a sneaker, but so much more elegant, smoking slippers are like ballet flats with just a little bit more polish.
Everlane Soft Cotton Popover Shirt
A cotton shirt that toes the line between the dressy and the casual. It’s totally work-appropriate, but could work for a kids’ party, too.
Patagonia Hi-Loft Hooded Down Men’s Sweater Jacket
Before it gets blisteringly cold, invest in a puffy Patagonia down jacket (and some
down detergent, while you’re at it). You can get this one for 20 percent off.
with code: TAKE20NOVEMBER
Patagonia Women’s Nano Puff Insulated Jacket
And there’s also a ladies’ version that’s a bit more streamlined.
with code: TAKE20NOVEMBER
Comme des Garçons Stud Half Zip Wallet
All the subtle status of the classic
CdG zip wallet, with the additional punk attitude of ten studs.
Farrow Ayaan Striped Turtleneck Sweater
We can see ourselves wearing this with our hair tucked into the turtleneck like Phoebe Philo.
Ralph Lauren Baby Boy’s Barn Bunting Snowsuit
Leith Waffle Grid Oblong Scarf
We can imagine just how cozy this scarf would be all wrapped up and poking out from the collars of our peacoats.
Pendleton Naselle Anorak
As much as we love the look of bright and zippy outerwear. we see ourselves reaching for something like this on most days — there’s no color story to think about.
Rvlt/Revolution Men’s Jacket
A burnt sienna coat that would look great with all the navy we already have.
Anthropologie Whipstitch Moto Jacket
leather coat with the most classic biker silhouette (the belt at the waist is removable).
Mario Badescu UO Exclusive Face + Body Set
Mario Badescu’s skin-clearing powers in a starter kit for the whole body — facial spray, body soap,
body lotion, and hand cream.
Diane von Furstenberg Large Steamer Bag
We really could see ourselves making do with this big bag for a 36-hour trip, and fitting everything we’d need inside.
DHP Kebo Futon Couch with Microfiber Cover
If you’ve been looking for an affordable
futon for unexpected guests, this one is just about the cheapest we’ve seen.
B.P. Crop Puffer Jacket
Another nice gift for the teen or tween in your life who’s impossible to shop for.
Cole Haan Signature Hooded Down Puffer Coat
This puffer’s a little more fit for an adult — one who needs a coat that doesn’t require overthinking for the morning commute.
AG Nancy Boyfriend Denim Jacket
We tend to think of denim jackets as spring coats, but they work just as well during the fall and winter as an office layer or a piece of contrast to a dress. This one has that slightly oversize but cropped shape that’s so popular.
Vans Classic Slip-On
Some checkerboard Vans in a blue — rather than the ubiquitous black — shade.

Frame Slender Trousers
Another great pair of jeans from Frame, with a high waist, flattering ankle crop, and a slim but not at all skinny fit.
Uniqlo Women’s Blocktech Parka
For when the forecast is 52 degrees with a chance of light rain.
Baggu Canvas Mini Backpack
This isn’t so much a backpack as the idea of a
backpack that can nevertheless house some beauty products, a hat, and a Kindle.
Adidas PureBoost X Element Knit Running Shoe
Anthropologie Quilt-Lined Anorak
An anorak with the clever removable option of a quilted layer of warmth.
Cult Gaia Small Gaia’s Ark
The highly culty Cult Gaia for much less than you’d ordinarily spend.
Adidas by Stella McCartney Training Seamless Tight in Granite
We’d love the mesh paneling and gray-blue color on these
leggings even if they weren’t Adidas by Stella McCartney.
Chen Chen & Kai Williams Napa Cabbage Fruit Planter
Lettuceware continues to be what we want in the apartment (okay, okay, this is technically cabbage).
Tory Burch Brooke Knee High Boot
The caramel-y tan color on these boots just makes them so sophisticated, don’t you think?
