For today’s sales roundup we gathered together a mix of deals on summer-y products (bathing suits, weekenders, T-shirts, clog sandals) as well as more fall-appropriate wares (a tea kettle, a down vest, a lunchbox, and a bunch of backpacks).

Patagonia Down Vest

Because, really, before you know it, it will be “down Patagonia vest” season …


Some everyday Madewell underwear made from “unbelievably soft fabric.” (For more from Nordstrom’s almost-over anniversary sale, click here.)

A mock-neck summer dress that will last you through the fall.

We’re big fans of the Laundress’s various detergents (particularly the Wool & Cashmere Shampoo), and you can get this handy four-pack of the brand’s best sellers for 18 percent off. (It makes a nice host or hostess gift.)

Speaking of sets, this stripy Baggu is one of three you’ll get in this handy “triple set.” (That’s eight bucks a bag, as opposed to the standard ten.) And for more on-sale stripy Baggus, click here.

Marni Knee Length Skirt

An elegant Marni skirt for nearly 80 percent off.

Sonia Rykiel Sandals

It’d actually look great paired with these Sonia Rykiel clog sandals.

LNDR Spectrum Leggings

Yoox is under-selling itself here; these high-waisted, muscle-sculpting LNDR leggings were originally $150, not $130.

We sort of overlooked Everlane’s backpack selection when its Choose What You Pay sale debuted, but now, with back to school fast approaching, we took a second look. This one has a handy padded laptop sleeve and handsome leather detailing. It also comes in gray.

Let us not forget that it’s still beach season, and this Solid & Striped one-piece is a nice 30 percent off.


As it so happens, our favorite electric tea kettle from San Francisco start-up Stagg, which features a built-in brew-range thermometer, is on super-duper sale right now.

Wild Standard NYC Flag

State or city flag décor is probably not our favorite kind of décor, but we do like this one from Wild Standard.

Mango Draped Blouse

A striped blouse from Mango that looks a lot more expensive than it is.

Gymboree Dino Backpack

For the little ones out there, a Stegosaurus-esque backpack. For more kids backpacks we like, click here (for boys) and here (for girls).

There are still a slew of summer weekends left, and this Hunter weekender is 40 percent off.
