Today’s sales roundup includes several in-season discounts to help you make the most of warmer weather. There’s a set of well-reviewed string lights for the porch or patio, some sweat-wicking shorts for outdoor workouts, and a water-resistant tote for your next hike, climb, or bike ride.

West Elm just added lots of new décor items to its sale section, including this handwoven seagrass basket. It’s just the right size for books, magazines, or even toilet paper.

Your anthurium sprig will never look better than in this earthy marble vase.

If you have the space (and accessible outlets) to hang string lights this summer, this set from Amazon is a favorite of several teens and college students we’ve spoken to — and even made an appearance on Jennifer Lawrence’s wedding registry.

These silicone oven mitts are heat safe up to 650 degrees Fahrenheit and will be much easier to clean than your standard fabric pair.

Urban Outfitters’ 50-percent-off summer sale starts today, with discounts on beauty, clothing, home décor, and more. Spotted among the discounts is this ’90s-inspired denim jacket from Levi’s, which we think would make a smart outer layer for chilly summer nights. (It’s still listed at full price on the Levi’s website, so we doubt it will last at Urban for long.)

Several accessories from Outdoor Products — a ’70s-era outdoorsy brand that’s having a bit of a renaissance — are also included in the sale, like this utility-style water-resistant tote.

And this handy water-bottle bag you’ll want to take with you on your next hike.

Speaking of the outdoors, Outdoor Voices’ OV Extra Sale is back on, and the discounts are (per usual) exceptionally good. We’re partial to these seven-inch bike shorts, which are now under $40 in black, blue-green heather, and the lime green shown.

Over at J.Crew, you can take an extra 50 percent off select sale items, these boyfriend-fit jeans included. They have a lowered mid-rise waist and a 28-inch inseam that’s perfect for those five-foot-six and under (though tall and petite lengths are available too).
