The end-of-season sales are in full swing, with countless deals to be had at Anthropologie’s Anthro Day, the first-ever Zappos VIP Sale, and Nordstrom’s long-anticipated Anniversary Sale — so we dug through them all and picked out some of the best. (And, as ever, if you want more sales coverage, sign up for our email newsletter.)


This weekend is Anthropologie’s Anthro Day, so they’re offering 20 percent off most full-price clothing, shoes, and accessories — including these cozy joggers that are available from XXS to 3X. (Discount is taken automatically at checkout.)

Make the most of this summer’s two most popular trends with these (surprisingly neutral) tie-dye bike shorts.

The first-ever Zappos VIP Sale is still going strong, with discounts on lots of high-quality basics, like this go-anywhere, waterproof Filson tote.

Manduka Presence Bra

A simple yet supportive sports bra for low- or medium-intensity workouts, or everyday wear, in case you’re still not ready for an underwire.

Marmot PreCip Eco Jacket

This versatile, unlined Marmot raincoat can be thrown over shorts and a T-shirt for end-of-summer storms, then layered over fleeces and sweaters when it starts to snow this winter.

Brooks has a cult-y following among runners because of their cushy, comfortable soles, which comes in handy if you’re doing double-digit mileage.

A colorful mountain bike (with training wheels) that’s just the right size for toddlers and young kids who are learning to ride.

After weeks of teasing, Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is in full swing. You can check out our full list of picks here, but some of the deals are so good, we had to highlight them here — like this handsome, insulated S’well water bottle.

This rectangular pillow could do double duty as stylish lumbar support on a not-so-comfortable work-from-home chair.

Even when on sale, these embroidered cotton percale sheets aren’t exactly cheap, but we’ve never seen Matouk bedding this cheap. (The brand was recommended to us by five interior designers as the best bedsheets.)

The sales at Nordstrom Rack are also particularly good right now, like these tiger-print heels that are nearly 80 percent off.

There’s lots of beauty deals at Nordstrom Rack right now as well, like this hydrating but lightweight Shisheido face cream.

If you’re still dealing with chapped and dry skin from washing your hands, here’s some actually nice smelling and moisturizing hand cream (that’s nearly half off).
