Today’s sales are varied in content, but united in … well, low-priced-ness. Mostly everything on our list, from stripe-y cotton turtlenecks from Madewell to a full Jonathan Adler sheet set, is under $50. We also spotted a deeply discounted laptop case (from the same brand that makes international-travel reporter Rossalyn Warren’s favorite travel backpack) at Nordstrom Rack, along with some items to refresh your kitchen for spring, including a nesting-doll-esque set of mixing bowls and measuring cups and a portable charger experts are constantly recommending to us. And if you’ve been looking for some workout gear for postwork runs, now that it’s no longer pitch black at 5 p.m., seize the moment: Amazon is offering 30 percent off C9 by Champion activewear for today only.
The basics’ company’s best-selling dolman-sleeve tee (along with lots of other spring-appropriate tops, like this cotton crewneck tee and this oversize striped button-down) is currently 40 percent off at Madewell. It’s made from recycled yarn and is available in a bright ivory, a charming mauve, and a basic black. The mauves are going particularly fast; we predict the rest will follow suit.
Also on sale is this supersoft cotton-blend striped turtleneck, an ideal transition piece to carry you from winter to spring.
This waxed-canvas carryall, which is big enough to fit a 13-inch laptop and has compartments galore, is currently on sale at Nordstrom Rack. It just so happens to be from the same brand that makes international-travel reporter Rossalyn Warren’s favorite travel backpack, which she says has traveled the world with her without accruing so much as a single scratch.
If your spring-cleaning (or just, you know, general-cleaning) regimen includes obtaining some fresh bedding, this full-size sheet set (which includes a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, and two pillowcases) from Jonathan Adler is a handsome, inexpensive option. The sheets are all stonewashed cotton and come in a subtle gray geometric pattern that would pair well with almost any duvet.
Perfect for apartment dwellers, this stainless-steel food-prep set is currently 35 percent off at Sur La Table. A bit of a space-saving marvel, the set’s handles manage to stack (and lock) everything from large mixing bowls down to a teaspoon into one compact set.
A slew of Anker accessories are currently 40 percent off at Amazon, including its popular PowerCore portable charger, which can charge phones six times (for tablets, two times) on a single charge. Regular readers will recognize Anker as the maker of many a Strategist-approved portable charger: David Pogue has raved about the brand’s chargers, as have Megababe founder Katie Sturino, comedian Jacqueline Novak, Outdoor Voices founder Ty Haney, and Strategist writer Hilary Reid.
Today, the already ultra-affordable C9 by Champion line is an additional 30 percent off at Amazon. We have our eyes on this formfitting, sweat-wicking full-zip with thumb holes that we imagine would be perfect for neighborhood jogs.
This is one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen for a tiny bag from tiny-bag-purveyor Jacquemus. And if you’re looking for other creative ways to spend your tax return, head over to Matches — everything in its sale section (including a color-block Loewe basket bag and statement shell earrings from Chloé’s Emoji collection) is an extra 20 percent off when you use the code EXTRA20 at checkout.
