40 Things on Sale You’ll Actually Want to Buy: From Apple to Sleepy Jones

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.

Everlane Cotton Pocket Tee

A slightly long pocket T-shirt that you’ll wash and wear and get holes in before giving up.

Timberland Backpack

Who knew Timberland made backpacks? We dig the unplaceable quality and speckled material on this knapsack. It looks almost like something you’d see slung over the shoulder of a hip Japanese high schooler.

Ah, the weighted blanket. Carla Hall loves them (hers is by Gravity). We just started using one and it’s shockingly comforting.

Andy Spade’s widely adored Sleepy Jones is a favorite of comfortably cool types, and the red-and-navy combo has become something of a signature for the brand.

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.

Selected Homme Sweater

A festive holiday sweater that won’t look too out-there when you break it out in February.

It’s not quite ten feet long, but the six-foot lightning cable from Anker is plenty sturdy, and very cheap right now (just in white).

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.

JBL GO2 Speaker

JBL makes some of the internet’s favorite speakers, and if you’re not looking for something too tricked out, this GO2 is ultraportable.

Costume jewelry from the late Kenneth Jay Lane, whose earrings and bracelets could be found on princesses and Park Avenue socialites (he counted Diana Vreeland among his closest friends).

Monstera Leaf Faux Plant
$15 for 3
$15 for 3

We get it — monstera leaves are everywhere and you’re over them. But a fun mind trick we like to play when we buy into a trend on its way out is to think of it as backlash to the backlash. (It totally works.)
