We’re in a bit of an in-between stage right now — it’s not quite the holiday season, but it’s not not the holiday season. Lots of retailers are putting up some good deals to get us in the mood, though: There’s a sale-on-sale going on at Outnet, scads of Uniqlo goodies, even an RCA flat-screen for $130 at Walmart. All those, plus Rio’s favorite cleanser, a bunch of Madewell jeans, and some nice shoe deals from Nordstrom Rack.
A slightly long pocket T-shirt that you’ll wash and wear and get holes in before giving up.
Need a TV for the bedroom? These days you can get big-screen TVs for much longer than 32 inches, but it more than suffices at this price.
A festive holiday sweater that won’t look too out-there when you break it out in February.
Danish brand Elka is famous for its minimalist rainwear — the Klitmøller is a best seller, and a nice departure from more established brands we think (it has an A.P.C. quality, no?).
It’s a pretty well-known trick by now, but the easiest way to fake an expensive mattress is to get an expensive mattress topper. They’re practically giving away this memory-foam one from Tempur-Pedic.
A sale-on-sale — a bunch of things from Outnet’s mid-season sale are an extra 50 percent off the sale price, like these extremely tasteful earrings.
