When we say something is rarely on sale, we mean it — and today, there’s lots of Strategist-approved pieces on sale at prices we’ve never seen before, including a half-off Away carry-on, a half-off Dyson vacuum, and a Parachute shower curtain.

Away Bigger Carry-On

Let’s start with the big news: For the first time ever, Away is having a sale — and the best-selling, Strategist-approved carry-on, which our experts praised for its sturdiness and sleek design, is half-off. (But don’t dillydally, especially if you see a color you like.)

Away The Mini Suitcase

Another deal from Away, this adorable mini-suitcase can stow all your small and travel-size essentials, and comes with an exterior D-ring for easy attachment to key chains or other luggage. It’s also always quick to sell out, even when it’s not on sale.

Strategist writer Jenna Milliner-Waddell calls this lipstick “my perfect nude,” and praised it for never smudging, even through Christmas dinner. It’s also half-off at Sephora’s today-only sale.

It’s been the summer of the belt bag, and it looks like the need for a hands-free bag isn’t going anywhere. This one is technically designed for cameras, but we think it’s just the right size for stowing all your socially distant outing needs, like hand sanitizer and a mask.

We also found this pink and beige knitted throw blanket in Nordstorm Rack’s sale section, perfect for those cozy, cool — and fast-approaching — fall evenings.

We’re longtime fans of Parachute’s bed linens, bath robes, and towels — and you can complete the set with this striped shower curtain.


Another pick from Parachute’s surprisingly excellent sales section: this medium-weight linen quilt with a striped, beachy pattern, but enough weight to layer for cool nights.

The Wunder fabric that makes up these leggings comes highly recommended for any type of exercise, from yoga to CrossFit.

It’s still not quite fleece season, but we found this mid-weight, quick-drying fleece sweatshirt in East Dane’s sale section that’ll take the chilly edge off your next hike.

This stackable charging power bank can wireless charge your phone (but it also has a USB-C slot, in case you do want a wire).
