In today’s sales-bin sweep, we found lots of deals to help you finish out your summer shopping list. There’s a Hill House Home–esque cotton dress and some leather beach (and bar) slides, as well as a set of grilling tools from Strategist favorite OXO Good Grips. And, of course, there are some deals that would be worth jumping on any time of year, including sales on Dyson, Kate Spade, and West Elm.

Easy to slip on but still protected by a rubber sole, espadrilles are perhaps the most practical footwear choice for summers in the city. And thanks to Kate Spade, this pair is plenty stylish, too — and now more than $40 off with code EXTRA30.

Kate Spade has also discounted this bag that’s perfect for the person who loves the ease of a roomy tote bag, but wishes they didn’t look quite so tote-y. Wrapped in pebbled leather, there’s an interior pocket for a 13-inch laptop, and the 11.5-inch strap means that come fall, it’ll fit over even the burliest of coats.

Also (almost) 50 percent off is this indoor-outdoor runner from West Elm, which — given that it’s designed to withstand frequent cleanings with a garden hose — should be plenty sturdy for your kitchen or entryway.

To go with it, here’s a Dyson vacuum with the very same “Ball” technology that earned a spot in our heavily vetted guide to the very best vacuums. “Despite what I thought was consistent vacuuming in the past,” our tester Karen Adelson reported, “the Dyson unearthed layers of dust and crumbs that had been buried in my thick living-room rug for months — if not longer.”

For two days only, J.Crew is offering 35 percent off all purchases (and free shipping) with code FLASH. We’d spring for this pleasingly long cotton-linen shirt, which has only received five-star customer reviews …

… and pair it with these padded leather slides — suitable for both the pool and date night — and also on sale in black, “rich caramel,” and navy.

The men’s side of the sale includes our best overall oxford shirt for men. Three different stylish men told us it’s their go-to, including photographer and rug dealer Mikael Kennedy, who even got married in his. “They’re not disposable-feeling, but they don’t feel precious, either,” Kennedy explains.

Madewell’s longer-lasting summer sale is still going strong — meaning you can still use code HEATWAVE for 30 percent off this very Hill House Home cotton dress.

Floor lamps come in surprisingly clutch during the summer months, when your home only needs a touch more light than what’s already pouring in from outside. This expensive-looking Target model should help with just that — before you also curl up under it with your book pile come the colder (and darker) months.

It’s no secret that we’re admirers of OXO’s Good Grips series, which is characterized by thoughtful design details and long-lasting materials. (Our editor uses its coffee dripper for her pour-over; chefs love its sheet pans.) This discounted set of grilling tools is a great way to prove your family doesn’t only treat Dad on Father’s Day.

Lastly, we also spotted a helpful discount on these Merrell hiking shoes right in time for the summer season. They just so happen to be the low-top (and therefore less sweaty) version of our favorite hiking boots for men and women.

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.
