44 Things on Sale You’ll Actually Want to Buy: From Mara Hoffman to Patagonia

Memorial Day has come and gone, but many of the sales are still going strong — and there are even some new ones that’ve started. We combed through the sales bins and found lots of summery stock, as well as quite a few good Father’s Day gifts.

This, Strategist writer Katy Schneider’s favorite white T-shirt, meets all her criteria for what a good white T-shirt should be: “I like them boxy, very (very) slightly cropped, and a bit short at the arm.”


What separates this soft cotton striped sweater from the sea of striped cotton sweaters out there is the pocket with vertical (!) stripes.

These (very on-sale) Veja sneakers are also available with a navy V.

These are maybe the perfect pair of hoop earrings; not too thin, not too thick, not too big, not too small.

Another excellent pair of hoops, made from marbled acrylic.

Speaking of acrylic, how about this price for a Cult Gaia bag?

This bikini is very 1950s vinyl tablecloth — but in a good way.

We can’t resist anything from Moda Operandi that’s tagged as “Lauren’s Closet,” meaning Lauren Santo Domingo herself (ostensibly) owns it.

Yes, we’re going straight from a “Lauren’s Closet” pick to a slouchy cotton V-neck sweater from Walmart. We’re all about a high-low moment at the Strategist. This top is from Lord & Taylor’s house line and is available in a rainbow of colors. Note: You can get free shipping if you spend over $35, so maybe do some underwear shopping while you’re at it.

These work-y petite pants have a nice flare to them and are machine washable.

It was one Alison Freer who tipped us off to the mumsy joys of Miss Elaine housecoats.

We’ve always dreamed of having a bedroom big enough to to handle a bench at the foot of the bed, so if you have the space, take advantage!

Just a small cherry wall light that’ll add a little pep to the place.

It’s a small thing, but we like how the label on these Superga sneakers is all-white — usually the “S” is red.

Not much to see here, just some Grateful Dead Chaco sandals!!!

We’ve had our eye on these Isabel Marant espadrilles for a while, and they’re (finally) a little bit cheaper.

More of a “going out” espadrille, from Soludos.

Some stretchy (60 percent off) jeans from L.A.-based husband-wife design duo James and Seun Lim.

Capulet Persimmon Miniskirt

What’s nice about this miniskirt is that, come fall, you can wear it with tights.


Lots of Coach bags are still 50 percent off, including this everyday Edie shoulder bag, crafted from pebbled leather, and in a very on-trend shade of oxblood.

Lululemon’s famous “Wonder Unders” leggings, but in a groovy shibori pattern.

The price-tag made us do a double take, and then we were very taken with the excellent reviews; many note how flattering it is, and how it looks great both tucked and untucked.

$12 at Madewell

For upcoming sultry summer days: a cross-back tank dress made from a breathable cotton-linen blend.

Stuff from Goop’s Memorial Day sale has gotten even cheaper. While the bottoms of this Solid & Striped bikini top are sold out, you could really pair this with any ol’ black bottoms. (Though sizes are limited.)
