The state of sales is truly excellent as we close out the week with lots of deep discounts for your home and wardrobe. There’s a rare deal on a lightweight linen duvet cover, a convincing dupe for an Instagram-favorite bodysuit, and a top-rated inflatable pool to keep kids and young-at-heart adults nice and cool. (And if you want even more deals sent straight to your inbox, sign up for our email newsletter.)


Lots of bedding and home décor is on sale over at Urban Outfitters, including this top-rated floor mirror that meets several of our actually honest mirror requirements.

Thicker than a throw but thinner than a quilt, this kantha-stitch cotton blanket is just the right weight for warm summer nights.

A geometric throw rug for your doorway or dorm room.

Gift a host (or yourself) this handsome barware set that doubles as décor.

With a couple of hot months still to come, keep the kids cool with this inflatable pool that pumps up in less than five minutes.

Villa Rouge Ballerina Mules

Shopbop just added lots of new in-season styles to its sale section, including these not-too-sweet ballerina slip-ons.


And this two-in-one Helmut Lang bra that can be unbuttoned to create a full-length tank.

Here’s a Tank Air–esque bodysuit with an adjustable halter neckline …

… and a Y2K-inspired Madewell slip skirt we’d wear it with.

There are lots of deep discounts over at East Dane, too, like these comfy cotton seersucker shorts from Alex Mill.


And a breezy cotton button-up to pair those shorts with.

Anine Bing Kian Sweatshirt

If you’re already looking forward to fall, here’s an excellent deal on a boxy turtleneck sweatshirt that’s still in stock in sizes XS to L.

They’re a bit of a splurge, but we rarely see Birkenstocks (let alone limited-edition Birks like these) for 40 percent off.
