23 Things on Sale You’ll Actually Want to Buy: From Patagonia to Staub

In this week’s sales roundup, we found lots of gear from Backcountry and REI to help get you moving, along with French baking dishes and a lot of cozy Alex Mill basics if you’re happy to just curl up on the couch.

We’ve never seen a Staub baking dish at this price — just $25 apiece — and they seem to be going quickly. (Already, one color has sold out at Sur La Table.) If you’re not sure what to do with these, try making lasagna in the larger of these two bakers and a fruit crumble in the smaller one for dessert.

If you’ve been struggling with soggy bottoms on your pies and quiches, try upgrading to this stoneware pie dish from Le Creuset. It heats evenly throughout, which will help with creating that crisp crust. (For just $40, it’s also a not-too-expensive gift for the mom who loves to bake.)


It seems that Nordstrom’s Spring Sale has officially ended — but the deals haven’t stopped. Today, we found a bunch of deeply discounted, vintage-inspired basics from Alex Mill, like this schlubby-but-stylish cotton cardigan.


This striped raglan sweatshirt that’s also 60 percent off looks quite kicky when paired with a bandanna around the neck (or face).

Alex Mill Solid Slub T-Shirt

A comfortable, already-broken-in, all-cotton T-shirt that’s 40 percent off.

Throw on this cropped denim work jacket before your next videoconference with your co-workers, and no one will know you’ve been wearing the same T-shirt for the last week.

BP. Ribbed Tank

This ribbed, white tank from Nordstrom’s in-house brand BP. reminds us of the fitted RE/DONE one that our writer Rio Viera-Newton has coveted (and that Bella Hadid loves).

If the freedom of going bra-free is getting a little old, here’s a comfortable, lightweight option from Natori to ease you back into it.

Some trendy, colored glass tumblers in a classic shape that you could use for orange juice, water, or wine, depending on the time of day.

Backcountry’s having a pretty massive sale on gear and clothing right now, and a lot of usually low-stock picks — like this Patagonia fleece that’s owned by two of our editors — are available in lots of sizes and colors.


Here’s a handsome folding beach chair from rarely on-sale Japanese outdoors-outfitter Snow Peak that you could set up on your stoop or rooftop or front yard, depending on your self-isolation situation.


These Alo Yoga leggings are specifically designed for lazing about (and claim to have built-in “anti-odor technology,” which should help if you’re going longer than usual between washes).

If you’re just looking to stock up on leggings, here are some mid-rise ones from Old Navy — with pockets for your phone and headphones and any other knickknacks you might need to take from room to room — that are over half-off.
