Spring is here! We found heavily discounted sandals, swimsuits, sunglasses, as well as a $34 printer and a rarely-on-sale Noguchi lamp.

Wear this DVF shell top under a cardigan at work, and then take said cardigan off at night to reveal a very sultry, lacy back.


Speaking of cardigans, how about this metallic one?

This cotton, springy Eileen Fisher scarf would make a very good Mother’s Day gift

This is a very good price (eight bucks) for a cooling, body-adjusting Serta pillow.

 A shallow Dutch oven — ideal for stewed meats and paellas — in a nice shade of “oyster white.”

Well, look at that: another button-detail top on sale. This one’s from Madewell.


Now that we know who Something Navy is … isn’t this a nice spring coat?

We’re not quite sure that the round metal accent has a “punk edge” exactly, but this is a very elegant and versatile leather cross-body bag from Rebecca Minkoff.

Sandal season is nigh, and these Kenneth Cole slingbacks look a lot more expensive than $30.


There is something very cool and crisp about a bright-white Eastpak backpack.

Skip Hop is known for its not-totally-garish baby stuff (that babies still like). This activity gym will keep your little one occupied so you can do things, like, say, brush your teeth or eat a sandwich.


If you have any spring or summer weddings on the horizon, this Guanabana clutch will liven up an outfit.

You could wear this fun J.W. Anderson bracelet to the same wedding — and at that point basically wear a potato sack and no one would notice.


A logo-adorned Calvin Klein sports bra.

When we first scoured Everlane’s “Choose What You Pay” sale, it wasn’t quite chino season. Well, now it is.

A go-with-anything Brooks Brothers henley.

An orange Neiman Marcus sweatshirt you could wear out to dinner.

Proof Field Jacket

This field jacket from “technical apparel” line Proof has lots of neat features: a packable hood, a secret “document” pocket, and a zipper that “stops right below your belly button to give you greater range of movement.” It’s also available in green and black.

Over at Totokaelo, the entire “art-object” section is 15 percent off, including this Noguchi table lamp, which multiple Strategist editors own.
