After a sales-heavy long weekend, you may think the savings are over — but many retailers have opted to extend discounts an extra few days to woo procrastinators. Already-on-sale styles are an extra 25 percent off at Shopbop, and an impressive selection of apparel and home décor is 50 percent off at Urban Outfitters. But don’t dillydally, since many of these deals end at midnight.

For fanned out and falsieslike lashes, pick up our pick for the best (less expensive) dramatic mascara for 30 percent off today. Maybelline’s lash makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff told us she loves it because it “delivers full volume and limitless length” without any smudging or flaking.

We love Breville’s line of coffee machines for quick, consistently delicious espresso at home that tastes like your favorite coffee shop, and though this Broadway actor-recommended Barista Express is still $600, it’s about as cheap as we’ve seen this espresso machine since 2020.

Select products from Urban Outfitters are 50 percent off for a limited time. In addition to looking incredible, this status-y planter — imagined by the design duo Chen Chen and Kai Williams for Areaware — has a saucer for drainage integrated into the base.

The mushroom-shaped table lamp you’ve no doubt seen splashed across every cool person’s Tiktok and Instagram feeds for the last year or so is half-off. Since these are handmade, each lamp is one of a kind.

I’m buying these unisex boxer shorts for myself. They look like the perfect pajama bottoms for impeding spring weather.

Shopbop’s long-weekend sale ends tonight, so it’s your last chance to take an additional 25 percent off sale styles with the code EXTRA25. Baggu’s machine-washable trifold wallet is $13 in this funky woodgrain pattern.

Baggu’s iconic Duck Bag — which is one of our favorite work bags for women and a great reusable shopping tote — is on sale for only $15 in basic black.

Today’s the last day to nab one of Universal Standard’s limited-edition mystery boxes, which include two to three pieces at very deep discounts. There are several themed boxes — such as “Athleisure” or “Best Sellers” — as well as the Surprise Me Box, which is $98 and includes three surprise styles valued at up to $844.

Strategist readers can take 25 percent off sitewide at Foria through February 28 with the code STRAT25. Kate Miller, a co-founder of CBD brand Miss Grass, says the brand’s Awaken Arousal Oil can “promote relaxation, stimulate blood flow, and increase your natural lubrication, all of which can lead to way better orgasms.”

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.
