As the holiday season creeps closer, we’ve been keeping an even closer eye on sales. Sure, there are the usual suspects (Black Friday, Cyber Monday), but there are other sale events — like Singles’ Day (which falls on 11/11) — that can yield similar savings. Currently, Verishop is getting a head start on their Singles’ Day sale, which is running from now through November 13. Lots of good things are currently on sale, including our favorite work bag — the Madewell Transport tote. There are two colors available. The black one is 30 percent off, bringing it down to $118, and the saddle color is slightly more expensive, coming in at $132. We’ve written about this sturdy, luxe-looking bag no less than a dozen times before and dubbed it one of the best bags for work thanks to its roomy interior and neutral go-with-everything shades. And in case you’re already getting a head start on holiday shopping, it makes a great gift.
