In today’s internet-sale sweep, we found a glut of in-season goodies to make weathering the outdoors and the indoors a little easier. There’s an April-downpour-proof raincoat that’s 40 percent off, and a fire-escape-safe set of shatterproof wineglasses for when the weather’s actually nice. Plus, a pair of hot-pink clogs for all-weather dog walks, and an on-sale, skin-saving hand cream to buy for mom — or, of course, yourself.

While these color-washed, supersoft leggings from Uniqlo — now a mere $20 — are comfortable enough for lounging around the great indoors, their UV-protection also makes them ideal for outdoor trail runs and midday hikes. But don’t dillydally: Sizes are limited.

A wet-weather-friendly plastic clog in a spirit-lifting pink that looks a touch more polished than the cool-nurse-approved surgeon clog — for over half off.

Nordstrom’s spring sale hasn’t gone anywhere, and there’s plenty of in-season picks still in stock, like this rubberized, waterproof one from Denmark-based rainwear company Rains (that’s something of a dupe for the much more expensive Stutterheim coats).

When it’s not raining, we think this set of stemless, ergonomic, and shatterproof wineglasses is perfect for a (responsibly, socially distanced) en plein air dinner.

An actually stylish, lumbar-supporting upgrade for the home office, now 40 percent off at Wayfair.

These easy-to-clean beeswax food wraps are a recipe-developer-recommended alternative to plastic wrap, which is especially nice if you’re saving more leftovers than usual.

For bringing some sun indoors, this easy-to-use, hydrating liquid bronzer from the celebrity-adored brand James Read is now 20 percent off.

This hand cream, from cult-y beauty line Rodin, would make a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift, especially after weeks of hard-core handwashing.


If your indoor workouts are making a compelling case to pick up a pair of wireless headphones, now’s the time: We found AirPods for $20 off on Amazon and New-York based photo and video retailer B&H.

At-home workout equipment has been flying off the shelves, yoga mats included. We found this still-in-stock, antimicrobial and latex-free yoga mat in a soothing lilac — for nearly 30 percent off.
