9 Things on Sale You’ll Actually Want to Buy: From Barbour to Stasher

Pulling all of our sweaters, leggings, and warm bedding out from storage is, for us, one of the highlights of fall. The less exciting part is when we realize our leggings collection is looking a bit droopy, our sweaters are pilling, and that our quilt from seasons past is, well, a little flat. To help you with the annual transition, today’s sweep of the internet’s sales bin includes deals on lots of cool-weather picks for your closet and home, along with Strategist-beloved beauty items for your face and hair. We also threw in some early holiday gift ideas, because (especially this year) it’s never too early to start shopping.

If you’ve been looking for an affordable pair of cross-waist workout leggings, let Nordstrom help. This Zella pair is ultraflattering, costs well under $50, and has an Outdoor Voices-y cross-dye finish.

Stasher makes some of our favorite ecofriendly kitchen items, including — according to one Strategist writer — the best reusable sandwich bags out there. This one, in an engaging sunset palette, would make a nice gift for a foodie (or just be a sustainable addition to your kitchen).

This “cloudlike” fleece from Barbour is, of course, incredibly cozy — but it’s also a little dressed-up thanks to a contrast pocket and cuffs.

We spotted another great Barbour find at Backcountry, which is currently taking 60 percent off winter essentials as part of its Winter Forecast Sale. This stylish plaid washbag combines the two things Barbour does best — it’s incredibly durable for travel, but also stylish enough to display proudly in any bathroom.


This might be the best of the bunch: North Face is rarely more than 50 percent off, let alone in a style that’s perfect for the season. But this vest is just that — it’s insulated, has a water-repellent finish, and is also on sale in camo and black.

Strategist-approved since 2017 — with praise from famous people and plenty of experts — this is the best affordable hairbrush even when it’s not on sale. But today, you can try it yourself for less than $10.

Another multiple-expert-approved product, this cream has been rated the best snail-mucin moisturizer for acne scars by Amazon reviewers, and according to our beauty writer Rio Viera-Newton, it’s also one of the best winter eye creams. (Jude Chao also told our friends over at the Cut that it’s a crucial part of her skin-care routine.)


The Cozy Sale is in full swing over at Schoolhouse, with up to 30 percent off bedding and rugs, including this designer-recommended all-wool throw that will add a bold “splash of color” to your décor, and also “has the look of being much more expensive” than it is. (The discount is automatically applied at checkout.)

Alternatively, give your fall bedspread an upgrade with one of these vintage-jacket-inspired quilts, which are on sale in all three colors pictured.

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.
