Warm-weather activities are just around the corner, and I’ve found deals on everything you’ll need for whatever’s coming down the pike. We’ve got on-sale suits for summer weddings; Strategist-approved trail runners for hikes or half-marathons; and tinted moisturizer, lip balm, and sunscreen for lightweight makeup looks.

I spotted several multipacks of Neutrogena products on sale at Amazon, including our favorite sunscreen, the Sheer Dry-Touch. Several skin-care experts and dermatologists we spoke to like that it’s inexpensive, lightweight, and slightly matte, so you can use it on your face without worrying about clogging pores.

The sunscreen also comes in a spray-on format, which dermatologist Sapna Palep actually prefers. She explains it’s easier to get full-body coverage as well as apply sunscreen to kids who can be “moving targets.”

We named the Altra Outroads the best workout shoe for outdoor pursuits, and they’re both comfortable — with a wide footbed and a flat heel-to-toe drop — and sturdy. Strategist writer Jeremy Rellosa uses the Outroads for “trail runs and walking on dirt and gravel trails,” and while the the outsole has thick lugs for gripping loose terrain, “I’ve found that the Outroad doesn’t feel out of place on shorter road runs.”

La Sportiva makes some of the best climbing shoes on the market, and you rarely see them this on sale. The aggressive toe makes these great for vertical, pocket-heavy climbs.

Men and boys’ suits, dress shirts, and slacks are 30 percent off with the code SHOPNOW at J.Crew until April 17. This Chris Black–approved suit jacket comes in six colors: beige, charcoal gray, light gray, almost-royal blue, navy blue, and black.

And you can never have enough basic crew socks. These are are available in white, gray, and black.

Select Clinique makeup is on sale at Nordstrom today. Makeup artist Jamie Greenberg likes this semi-matte tinted moisturizer, as it “stays in place once applied and doesn’t get caught up in fine lines.”

Clinique’s iconic Chubby Stick is on sale at both Nordstrom and Ulta. Makeup artist Hannah Biddle told us the low-maintenance lip tint adds “just enough color while being moisturizing at the same time.”

The army-green liner jacket gets a summery update — and this one is over half off.

Eat your veggies and decorate with them, too.

You may not be a member of a country club, but you can at least look the part.

We’re normally fans of the classic strappy Chaco sandals, but these flip-flops look very nice, too.

Pamela Love’s alphabet and Zodiac symbol earrings are 30 percent off with the code ABC30 through April 14. The dainty 14-karat-gold studs would make an exceptional Mother’s Day gift.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape.
