Memorial Day weekend has come and gone, but a few sales are sticking around for an extra day or two. Madewell and Ban.do are both offering sitewide discounts, and Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale has new deals every day (you can find our guide to it here). Scroll on to see some can’t-miss picks from those sales, plus a few more on-sale treats like a sleek espresso machine, board shorts, and our holy-grail white socks.

The popular ChomChom lint roller — which traps pet hair with a nylon brush instead of single-use sheets — is 36 percent off when you apply Amazon’s on-site coupon.

A small price to pay for espresso martinis at your fingertips all summer long.

Madewell’s Memorial Day Sale ends tonight, so it’s your last chance to take 30 percent off your entire purchase with the code WARMUP. The sophisticated Corinnes, which we named our best lug-sole loafers, are available in brown and black.

Already-on-sale items are an extra 40 percent off with the same code, including these strappy slip-ons that are just $36 in black.

If you must wear pants during the summer, make sure they’re slouchy.

The men’s section has an excellent selection of breezy button-ups and shorts. This lightweight pair comes in seven colors and can be worn at home, to the beach, or on the court.

For bona fide board shorts, this pair from Rip Curl is just $18.

Lots of nice home décor is deeply discounted for Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale. We love the analog Wideboy, which has a mid-century-modern look inspired by British clocks.

And here’s a wall-mounted option for the modernism fan.

Ban.do’s Memorial Day Sale ends tomorrow night: Use the code WOOHOO to take 30 percent off everything. You can usually find some nice Baggu products on sale, and I spotted a nice-looking fanny pack in black, gingham, and periwinkle.

Clearance items are an extra 30 percent off with the same code. This floral leatherette pill case has eight compartments: one for each day of the week, plus an extra for allergy meds, once-weekly pills, emergency M&M’s, etc.

After a nearly decade-long search for the perfect pair of white socks, fashion historian Ruby Redstone found love in the crew socks from Maggie’s Organics. Her ode was so convincing that several Strategist staffers, myself included, consider themselves “Maggie-pilled.”

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.
