After being OOO last week for a quick spring-break road trip, I’m back with some delightful deals with warm weather in mind. Below, you’ll find an under-$100 swimsuit cover-up, a very luxurious outdoor chair for camping, and a few bralettes from Richer Poorer’s warehouse sale for the days you can’t bring yourself to put on an underwire bra. Plus dry shampoos are 30 percent off at Ulta, just in time to stock up for the sweatier seasons.

If you liked our roundup of under-$100 beach cover-ups, here’s a striped cotton dress that can be worn from beach towel to tiki bar without looking zhlubby.

REI just keeps adding tons of goodies to its deals bin, and discounts are now up to 50 percent off. This Hydro Flask tumbler, which is still in stock in nine colors, features double-wall vacuum insulation to keep beverages cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to six hours.

Nemo’s Stargaze recliner is still a bit pricey, even at a 50 percent off discount, but it is one of our best-in-class outdoor chairs. It’s “incredibly comfortable, with a combination of swinging, rocking, and reclining that seems like a mind-blowing feat of engineering for a portable chair,” says Montana-based writer and avid backpacker Maggie Slepian.

Or, if you don’t want to spend a lot, you really can’t go wrong with this camp chair from REI’s in-house line when it’s just $25.


Breville’s top-rated toaster oven is small but mighty: It covers the basics by comfortably fitting four slices of toast, and reviewers say it can make everything from homemade biscuits to roast chicken thanks to its eight cooking functions.

Now’s your chance to snag an all-time Strategist favorite at a deep discount because Ulta is offering 30 percent off a cache of hairstylist-approved dry shampoos (even cheaper than if you purchased it from Dermstore’s sitewide sale). The vegan formula uses oat milk as an astringent that soaks up oil at the roots without being too powdery and suffocating your scalp.

Batiste’s affordable, reliable, and heavy-duty dry shampoo provides an “instant shot of volume,” according to beauty journalist Ayesha Muttucumaru, and comes in a range of scents to refresh unwashed strands.

Richer Poorer’s massive spring-cleaning sale is starting to look a little picked over, but the brand’s iconic cutout bralette is still in stock in several colors and sizes.

This classic triangle bralette is available in even more colors. Plus you can buy one and get one free when you add two of these to your cart and enter the code 2FORME.

Today is the last day of’s sitewide sale, where you can take 25 percent off everything with the code TAKE25 or 30 percent off orders over $50 with the code TAKE30. We think you should snag this fanny pack from Baggu’s collaboration with Laura Ashley, which just launched last week.
