Though the weather is starting to warm up, now is a very good time to buy winter shoes across the internet’s sales bins: There’s a bunch of Sorel boots and booties on extra discount at Backcountry and some fleece-lined corduroy Vans at Madewell. Plus, if you’re in the mood to get a head start on spring cleaning, one of our favorite Wi-Fi iRobot vacuum cleaners is on sale, as well as a top-rated set of pots and pans, should you want to upgrade your kitchen, too.
These boots are similar in style to a classic duck boot but with a bit more heft, thanks to the faux-fur lining. One reviewer said that the tread can “grip even the slickest of surfaces.” And while they might not get used again until next November, you’ll be glad to have them on hand (especially at this price).
This T-fal pan takes the guesswork out of preheating, since the ring around the center turns solid red once it’s hot enough for frying.
If that thermo-spot indicator is enticing, you can get this 17-piece T-fal set. Everything is titanium-reinforced, scratch-resistant, nonstick, even dishwasher-safe, so cleanup will be a breeze.
If you’re ready for some pre-spring cleaning, this Wi-Fi controlled vacuum works on both carpet and hardwood floors, and captures 99 percent of all allergens, pollen, and particles. We’ve written about this robot vacuum in the past, and former Strategist writer Lori Keong described its cleaning as systematic, “moving back and forth in a grid pattern so that it doesn’t miss much, and without bumping into furniture too often.”
Despite the celestial packaging, this eye shadow palette from Smashbox is surprisingly neutral, with lots of warmish shades for a no-makeup-but-still-sunkissed look — all for just $27.
With a 15-inch laptop sleeve and and external pockets for water bottles, this half-off Marmot backpack is ideal for hiking and commuting alike.
