Good afternoon and welcome — it’s a primo day to shop some sales, from dishcloths to work pants. Lots of brands are holding sitewide sales this week, including Universal Standard and Target — and there’s still time to shop Sur La Table’s massive sale before it ends today.

It’s the final day of Sur La Table’s anniversary sale, and there’s still lots of great deals on kitchen essentials like this classic Microplane, which is a favorite among home cooks and pro chefs alike. (And though it says it’s just for zesting, it’s also great for grating Parmesan cheese and even garlic.)

A good boat neck is hard to find, but we like this waffle-knit number from French Connection. It’s 40 percent off and comes in four different colors, including a Valentino-esque pink for those not quite ready to give into seasonal beiges and browns.

One of our favorite size-inclusive apparel brands, Universal Standard, is having a 25 percent off sitewide sale right now that includes the Next to Naked bodysuit that writer Francine Maroukian wears from barre class to the office and even happy hour. “If I didn’t appreciate it so much, I might actually forget it was there.”

Also part of the sale (at an even bigger discount) are our favorite pull-on work pants for plus sizes.

This multi-hyphenate toaster oven is $140 off today. It can air fry, bake, roast, broil, sear, and toast without sacrificing precious counter space.


Another today-only sale is this massage gun with an impressive following — including Strategist contributor Rio Vera-Newton, who says this small-but-mighty massager provides incredible relief in just 15 minutes.

The candle that SoulCycle swears by is 25 percent off. Strategist writer Tembe Denton-Hurst attests that the energizing citrus scent “really takes over a space.”

We’re big fans of Natori for their bras and silk pajamas, and this floral, Marimekko-esque PJ set is incredibly fun.

A lot of textiles from Target’s in-house home-goods brand, Threshold, are 20 percent off right now. This textured table runner is a must-have for your next dinner party.

You can never have too many dishcloths. These are under $5 for a pack of four.

This already-discounted National Parks tee is an extra 50 percent off when you use the code SHOPSALE — taking the price all the way down to $20.

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.
