The weather is warming up, and so are the sales. We found discounts on lots of things to brighten up this shoulder season between winter and spring, including yellow rainboots for her, a handsome chore coat for him, even a Le Creuset grill pan for those who want to barbecue but aren’t ready to stand around outside. (And, as always, if you want more sales coverage from the Strategist, sign up for our email newsletter.)
Backcountry’s Winter Clearance is still going strong, and though it’s mostly previous season’s picks that are on sale, there are some warm-weather-friendly finds — like this easy-to-layer flannel button-up.
This cozy-looking fleece is also available in white, blush pink, and a purple-gray that the brand calls “ash.” (But heads up: Different colors have different discounts.)
These are some of our beauty writer Rio Viera-Newton’s favorite eye patches, because they “have a cooling effect — meaning that they feel chilled without even having to put them in the fridge.” (And you can check out more of Rio’s picks from the Dermstore Beauty Refresh Event.)
This Tula moisturizer is another one of Rio’s favorites, packed with probiotics.
This “cotton-jersey sweater” — not crewneck sweatshirt — from Lacoste is available in sizes up to 4XL.
It’s still a touch too cold to stand outside over a barbecue — but if you’re eager for those grill marks on your burgers, this Le Creuset pan can help you feel like you’re cooking outdoors.
Swap out your snow boots for these bright-yellow rain boots that’ll protect your feet from puddles.
And for her, a faded black denim top from Madewell, part of their sale-on-sale. (Just remember to use code HOWFUN at checkout to get the extra 20 percent off.)
We found a cache of springtime essentials on sale at Everlane, like these (water-resistant) suede Chelsea boots.
Some slim cropped pants in a creamy white for when it’s warm enough to show some ankle.
If you like the idea of Everlane’s high-waisted, wide-leg pant but are intimidated by actually wearing a wide-leg, here’s the straight leg version, available in sizes 00 to 20.
