If there’s any takeaway from today’s Monday sweep of internet sales bins, it’s that fall will soon be upon us: We found lots of cozy, cool-weather-friendly deals, like a rarely-on-sale Madewell trench coat, a pullover sweater for almost 70 percent off, and a reversible throw blanket. And for those who want to get a head start on a (socially distant) Halloween, we found some marked-down kid-friendly costumes, too.

$47

There are lots of deals to be had from Nordstrom’s always-worthy sale section, like this subtle leopard-print throw blanket.

$45

We love silk pillowcases for reducing skin irritation and hair frizz, and this 100 percent silk one — also from Nordstrom’s sale section — is discounted just in time for the fast-approaching dry winter air.

A cozy, textured pullover sweater for those cool, in-between-season days that’s still nice enough for Zoom work calls.

For the Lakers loyalist in your life, this face mask set of two from Urban Outfitter’s sale would make a great gift. (They’ve got Bulls fans covered, too.)

$19

Another pick we found at Urban Outfitter’s limited-time sale, this bucket hat is perfect for 90s hip-hop fans, or those who just want to practice safe sun.

Tommy Colorblock Tote Bag
$19
$19

Yet another pick from Urban Outfitters’s under-$20 sale, this sturdy canvas tote comes in blue or brown and features a useful outer front pocket, ideal for a phone, an extra mask, and some hand sanitizer.

From $35

Halloween will be here before you know it, and now is a good time to find a costume for kids before they start to sell out. This marked-down Elsa costume surely won’t last on shelves for long.

Another Halloween costume, this one for the Toy Story– or astronaut- obsessed child in your life.

Hydro Flask The Rocks Cup
$15
$15

This temperature-controlled, no-slip cup is great for taking warm drinks on climbing trips or just a casual day hike. But don’t dillydally: It’s on sale just for today at REI.

A former Secret Service agent once told us that she keeps this portable power station – which can charge anything from a cell phone to an MP3 player – with her at all times. Right now, it’s more than half-off at Best Buy.

$149

While up-close social activities are still out of the question, there is lots of socially-distancing fun to be had — like birdwatching, stargazing, or plain old people-watching with this pair of on-sale binoculars.

Penguin Seasoning Shaker
$38
$38

This penguin-shaped Japanese porcelain salt shaker will liven up your dinner table (or TV tray, or wherever you’re eating your meals these days).

Madewell Sedgwick Trench Coat
$96
$96

There’s nothing like a classic trench coat in the fall. This bestselling one from Madewell is particularly stylish – we like the unstructured fit and lightweight material – and it’s an extra 40 percent off sale, along with hundreds of other pieces.
