We all know about Amazon Prime Day, but here at the Strategist, we’ve also been keeping an eye on the best non–Amazon Prime Day deals — and one of the best happening right now is at Target. Its online-only sale, known as Deal Days, doesn’t require a membership fee, and though you can find air fryers and headphones on sale, we were mostly delighted by the broad selection of fun, summery picks, from an Aesop-hand-soap dupe to furniture by Studio McGee. (And best of all, just about everything here is less than $100.) Scroll through to find our favorite (and slightly less obvious) deals for your wardrobe, your home, and even your baby.
New York deputy editor Alexis Swerdloff owns not one but two of these linen tank dresses. She’s a fan of this black-and-white floral pattern, which reminds her of Marimekko’s Unikko print. “It’s got a flattering, somewhat high neckline, hits nicely just below the knee, and, most important, has pockets,” she says.
These cloudlike slides come in six more colorways, including classic black and a cheeky gold — but we’re partial to this sorbet-hued option.
Those sandals would pair well with this kicky striped shirt.
A thick but not too thick T-shirt.
Here’s a $7 hat-and-romper set that will fit newborns to 2-year-olds.
This hand soap by Method has taken over SoapTok as the perfect Aesop dupe. And right now, when added to your cart, it’s 25 percent off.
A toy, shoes, and whatever else organizer.
For closed storage, try this handsome ottoman designed with Studio McGee.
Target’s tried-and-true, and very soft, Threshold sheets.
This Shaker-style chair looks a lot like the one on our list of best dining chairs — but it’s less than half the price.
We’re longtime fans of Justina Blakeney’s Jungalow and its signature graphic prints, and this vibrant oblong throw pillow would match just about any bedscape.
If stripes aren’t your thing, try this cream-and-mahogany square throw pillow from the Studio McGee collection.
Whether you’re calling it “coastal grandmother aesthetic” or “Nancy Meyers–core,” this table lamp is it.
Finally, we found this two-seater sofa for 25 percent off. The wood frame adds a nice twist to your average gray couch.
