Should you plan on entertaining this summer, today’s sales-bin sweep includes several rare (and actually good) deals on items for your home, kitchen, patio, and wardrobe. There’s a potluck-ready Dutch oven for family-size sides, wood serving boards for Instagrammable hors d’oeuvres, and a weather-resistant patio set you won’t ever have to bring inside.

When we learned French-based womenswear brand Miaou was teaming up with Urban Outfitters for a limited-edition collection, we didn’t dare think it would ever go on sale — let alone for nearly 90 percent off. This corset-inspired bustier top has a cropped fit and curved hem and, according to reviewers, can easily accommodate larger busts.

The matching pants — which have Y2K-inspired O-rings stitched into the back — are also included in the sale.

We’ve long been fans of Baggu’s canvas duck bag for schlepping school supplies, workout gear, and everything in between. Along with two NASA-inspired prints, it’s also on sale in this trippy red check.

If you’re looking for a new red lipstick, you can’t go wrong with M.A.C. Both travel sizes of Ruby Woo, the brand’s best-selling bluish red shade, and Chili M, an orangey red, are just $8 each for a limited time.

This dermatologist-recommended Slip pillowcase (complete with a laundry bag) promises to be anti-aging, anti–sleep crease, and anti-bedhead.

Here are some stylish wood serving platters for finger foods and charcuterie spreads, now just $12.50 each.

Speaking of dinner parties, cooking family-size sides couldn’t get any easier than with this under-$100 cast-iron Dutch oven.

With fade-resistant cushions and a weather-resistant wicker finish, this three-piece patio set is sure to last for years to come.

And if you’ve been meaning to cook more (and order takeout less), consider this deeply discounted 12-piece Cuisinart cookware set. It comes with a two-quart saucepan, a three-quart sauté pan, a five-quart stockpot, an eight-inch nonstick skillet, a ten-inch skillet, a slotted spatula and spoon, a solid spoon, and a pair of nylon tongs — everything you could ever need to get started.
