9 Things on Sale You’ll Actually Want to Buy: From Eileen Fisher to Prana

In this week’s first sweep through the internet sales-o-sphere, we’ve found some (still-in-stock) items to make your at-home workouts a little easier and a couple of not too expensive, giftable items for Mom, whether she likes accessorizing or has a penchant for designer brands.

Anthropologie’s entire sale section is an extra 50 percent off right now, which means prices are slashed on hundreds of items that would make nice Mother’s Day gifts for every type of mom, like this pair of pearl-embellished hoops if she wants to look glam on Zoom calls. Plus, if you spend more than $50, express shipping is only $5.

A (nearly) $100 off breezy shift dress from Eileen Fisher that is just as easy to pull on as your sweats and more suitable for the warm weather ahead.

Fitbit Versa Smartwatch, 34 mm

This Fitbit fitness tracker (that doubles as a smartwatch) will count your steps from the couch to the kitchen or motivate you to move a little bit more, and it’s $20 cheaper than when it went on sale earlier this month.

Prana E.C.O. Yoga Mat

Like toilet paper and puzzles, at-home workout equipment has been flying off the shelves recently, including yoga mats, which makes this nonslip discounted mat from Prana a pretty lucky find.

Another essential for at-home workouts (or just working from home) is a good pair of headphones, like these $80 wireless earbuds from JBL, which we’ve previously named as the best wireless headphone brand under $150.

If your mom is the type that likes to pamper herself, we think this under $30 designer lip stain would be a nice, cheap Mother’s Day gift from an otherwise expensive brand.


Just because we’re stuck inside doesn’t mean it won’t get warm and sunny soon, so why not get a pair of everyone’s favorite Ray-Ban sunglasses to wear on your socially distant walks?

When we asked a bunch of stylish guys about the best gym shorts for men, Lululemon was the most popular brand, and this seven-inch linerless pair comes with a media pocket, which one cool coach says “will hold your phone securely in place, whether you’re rowing a 6K or sprinting a 2K.”

Madewell’s nearly sitewide sale has gone from an additional 40 to 50 percent off, so a bunch of items — like this scoop-neck cotton sweater for transitional-weather-wear — are cheaper than ever.
