A real summery selection of sale items below: from dresses to bathing suits to beach bags — plus a bunch of Father’s Day gifts thrown in for good measure.

Lots of happy reviewers; combing through reviews, we learned that it’s lighter than most grill pans and that it’s particularly good for panini and burgers (and leaves grill marks on them). Incidentally, for all you pan-heads, there’s a larger Calphalon sale at BB&B happening now.

It’s not pouring rain and our down jacket’s at the dry cleaners … can we buy a bathing suit yet? This polka-dotted two-piece suit from Solid & Striped is both cute and coy. (Here’s a link to the bottoms.)

Madewell’s classic Emmett wide-leg crops, but with a lightly graphic windowpane pattern.

They’d look great with these Dansko clogs that half of the Strategist team owns.

Speaking of comfortable shoes, we actually own these slip-on Naturalizer sneakers — and traveled around Portugal in them last summer — and can wholeheartedly say they did right by us.


There’s a sale going on at Anthropologie where a whole slew of their best-selling dresses are half off — including this off-the-shoulder “Oahu” dress from Anthro’s new(ish) plus-size line.

A minty dress with tiny white flowers strewn about it.

Dip your toe in the culty world of Sunday Riley with this discounted gift set that includes the skincare line’s famous Good Genes serum as well as a daily Ceramic Slip facial cleanser. Note: while it’s not hugely on sale, the two of these products together actually has a $45 retail value.

An aptly-named “Let’s Boogie” glitter-streaked eye shadow from MAC.

We probably would not choose to wear this daisy-adorned Free People dress with white boots — so put your hand over the screen and imagine them with, say, these strappy Everlane sandals.

They wouldn’t go with these Betsey Johnson sandals… but aren’t these Betsey Johnson sandals totally amazing?

An elegant swimsuit collab between Pendleton and Hurley.
