This week’s edition of Friday Sales is all about getting ready for fall, and there’s lots of stuff on sale that’ll keep you warm and help you through this transitional weather, like a packable vest from Lululemon, a Sherpa fleece-lined jacket, and suede Chelsea boots.


Macy’s is having a VIP Sale that’s open to anyone who uses the code VIP at checkout, and the discount (up to 30 percent) is applicable to a bunch of already-on-sale items, like this long-sleeved, floral Free People dress.

$62 at Macy's
with code: VIP

If you’re looking to get a head start on Thanksgiving prep, this apartment-sized KitchenAid stand mixer is 10-percent off.

$372 at Macy's
with code: VIP

Or, if you’re getting the duvet out of storage, now’s also a good time to refresh your duvet cover. The clean lines and navy blue border of this one remind us of interior designer-approved (and much more expensive) Frette.

$141 at Macy's
with code: VIP

There’s also a bunch of things on sale at Macy’s that don’t require a code, like this Nike fleece sweatshirt that has a little more texture, and thus looks a bit more fashion-y, than your standard cotton crewneck sweatshirt.

This very supportive-looking wireless bra is just $13, no discount code required.

These GreenPan skillets from Food52 are functional, made with nonstick, nontoxic ceramic, surprisingly chic (those brass handles) — and, importantly, 20 percent off right now.

This pair of penny loafers doesn’t appear to be on sale at Walmart, but the list price is usually $95, making this functionally a 38 percent discount.


Lululemon’s lightweight down vest comes with its own stuff sack, making it easy to take along in this unpredictable, between-seasons weather.

This yoga tank top is kind of a like a mullet: simple in the front, with built-in ventilation in the back.

If you can’t remember the last time you bought a new pillow, it might be time to replace it. This king-sized one is cooling and designed to suit all types of sleepers.


We like the ruched waist detailing on these now half-off Eloquii jeans.

If your goal is to look glowy and rosy this fall, this Urban Decay palette is a good place to start.


These shiny twill joggers from Lou & Grey look too nice to wear while lounging at home, but also so comfortable that we wouldn’t blame you if you did.

On the other end of the joggers spectrum are these moisture-wicking, drape-y workout pants from the North Face, which are almost 50-percent off at Zappos.

New Balance 997 Sport

Some ugly-but-cool New Balance sneakers at Huckberry.

This mustard-y workwear-slash-bomber jacket from New England-based brand Penfield is lined with sherpa fleece.

Another packable pick: This backpack is light enough to fold down flat, but it still has lots of signature Tumi features, like a sturdy nylon exterior.

A versatile Eileen Fisher shirtdress that can be dressed up or down, with or without tights.

Mint-green high-waisted jeans from Acne that also have a bit of stretch to them.

Some light-washed high-rise jeans from Citizens of Humanity at Revolve.

This mini suede bucket bag feels like the autumnal take on summer’s baskets-as-bags trend.

A very practical carry-on suitcase from Herschel in a hard-to-miss orange (so you might not even need a luggage tag).

In this week’s issue of the print magazine, we went deep into the history of stripes, and this striped pullover from French brand A.P.C. is very much on-theme.
