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.

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.

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.

Parachute is taking up to 40 percent off select bedding and bath items, which just so happen to include one of our favorite cooling linen duvet covers. (Note: You’ll need to create a free Parachute account to shop the sale.)

For a more traditional look, this one has a split flange and contrasting embroidered hem.

Tie this over-50-percent-off floral bandana around your ponytail or tote strap.

This versatile gold-plated chain can be layered with other necklaces or worn alone as a true statement piece.

Turning to the home, this ten-piece cookware set comes with a 1.5-quart saucepan and cover, a three-quart sauté pan and cover, a five-quart stockpot and cover, a ten-inch skillet, a slotted turner, a solid spoon, and a slotted spoon — in short, everything you (or a recent grad) could ever need while cooking.

Get this top-rated Dyson vacuum — which features a HEPA filter to trap allergens and bacteria for cleaner air — for $250 less than usual.

There are only three days left to shop Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale before it ends this Sunday, August 8. While lots of our favorites have already sold out, you can still snag these sculptural Franco Sarto booties in both cognac and black.

And this down-filled jacket from the North Face that’ll keep you warm and dry once the weather gets worse.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
