If today’s sales-bin sweep told us anything, it’s that the last of the Labor Day sales are winding down, so you’ll need to act fast to secure the goods. Included among them are a zit-busting spot treatment for half the price, a Strategist-approved, color-correcting hair-toner set, and an excellent deal on a jean jacket for the cooler weather ahead.

Pottery Barn is taking an extra 20 percent off clearance with code LABORDAY until tomorrow, September 9. Among the deals is this weather-resistant party bucket, which offers ample storage for cold drinks, bottles, and ice-cream containers. We think it would also make a nice outdoor vessel for growing vegetables.

And here’s an excellent deal on a dip-dyed pillow cover that will complement just about any indoor or outdoor décor.

Thousands of reviewers give this tricycle five stars, including a person who says it “stole the show” at their 2-year-old cousin’s birthday party.

If you’re thinking about dipping your toes back into denim, this Madewell pair has a generous wide fit through the hip and thigh.

Steve Madden Arrive Bootie
$70
$70

You can’t go wrong with a pair of heeled leather boots from Steve Madden, especially when they’re under $100.

Mac Sports Mac Wagon
$80
$80

Strategist readers, writers, and hundreds of Amazon reviewers all rely on this Mac Sports wagon to schlep everything from snacks to sports gear across town.

$9

Today only, Mario Badescu’s best-selling, zit-busting spot treatment is 50 percent off at both Sephora and Ulta Beauty.

Today’s the last day for Levi’s Red Tab members to get up to 40 percent off their purchase at checkout. (Membership is free and requires only an email address.) We particularly like this men’s trucker jacket, which is made of rigid organic cotton and is still in stock in sizes XS to XXL.

Anthropologie just added lots of new styles to its sale section, including this work-appropriate leather tote. If you’re looking for more of a statement piece, it’s also on sale in emerald green, mustard yellow, light blue, and red-orange.

$50

This plaid tank would look especially good paired with the boots above (and layered over a black turtleneck once the weather cools).

And finally, oVertone — one of our favorite brands for at-home hair coloring — is taking 25 percent off sitewide with code 25OFF. This two-piece set includes the brand’s best-selling purple toner for bleached hair and our favorite quick-drying hair wrap from Aquis. It ships for free, too.

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.
