All of the Best Post-Christmas Sales: From Anthropologie to Zappos

Illustration: The Strategist

While most of December is spent finding gifts for others, the time between Christmas and early January — invariably flush with post-holiday sales — is always ideal for finding gifts for yourself. So, if you didn’t unwrap those fresh bedsheets or those new waterproof boots you wanted, now is the time to treat yourself. Retailers from Everlane to Nordstrom to Zappos are slashing prices on countless items, but as anyone who has shopped a post-Christmas sale knows, the best deals can often be buried. That’s why we’ve been keeping an eye on all of them in order to find the stuff worth spending money on. To make this list easier to shop, we’ve also arranged it alphabetically by retailer (in Strategistspeak, that’s from Anthropologie to Zappos). Where applicable, we’ve also noted how long each retailer’s sale lasts.

Anthropologie is taking 30 percent off select in-stock furniture, bedding, and home décor, along with an extra 40 percent off already-on-sale items. (On eligible products, the additional discount applies automatically once you’ve added them to your cart.)

Over at Backcountry, a bunch of stuff from hardwearing brands like Patagonia, Arc’teryx, the North Face, Fjallraven, and more are up to 40 percent off. The sale ends January 7.

Save on laptops, TVs, tablets, small kitchen appliances, and more as part of the retailer’s New Year’s Savings Event.

Brooklinen — the maker of some of our favorite cozy sheets, shower curtains, quilts, and sweatpants — is offering a 15 percent discount on all of its linens, including the linen-sheet set (below) that made our list of the best linen sheets. There’s no minimum purchase price required for the discounts, which will be applied automatically at checkout.

Should you need a better winter jacket, Columbia is offering up to 50 percent off select cold-weather gear for men, women, and kids.

As part of their Winter Clearance Event, Crate & Barrel is taking up to 60 percent off furniture, kitchenware, décor, and more.

For a limited time, rarely on-sale (and dermatologist-recommended) SkinCeuticals products are 15 percent off at Dermstore with code SKINC15.

Everlane’s Goodbye 2021 Event is live through December 31, featuring discounts of up to 60 percent on more than 100 products the brand will stop producing in 2022. A few of our favorite deals are below, and you can head here for even more.

Now through December 31, Girlfriend Collective is offering 20 percent off sitewide — along with up to 50 percent off select styles — with code THATSAWRAP.

Through January 1, cold-weather clothing, footwear, outdoor gear, and more are all up to 40 percent off at Huckberry.

Select styles (including several pairs of our favorite jeans for men and women) are up to 50 percent off as part of Levi’s year-end sale.

Lululemon also just added lots of new quick-to-sell-out styles to its post-holiday sale, which runs through January 4.

Through January 3, Madewell is taking an extra 30 percent off already on-sale styles with the code BYE2021 for its End of Season Sales Event.

As part of Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale, you can get up to 50 percent off a bunch of winter-weather essentials, like waterproof Hunter boots for kids and cozy cashmere sweaters. The sale ends January 2, but don’t dilly-dally: Styles are already selling out. (And for even more deals from Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale, head here.)

From now through January 2, Nordstrom Rack is taking an additional 25 percent off clearance items, including clothing, shoes, accessories, beauty, home décor, and more.

As part of the cult activewear brand’s OV Extra sale, shoppers can save up to 50 percent on lots of new in-season styles. (You can shop the rest of our favorite on-sale Outdoor Voices styles here.)

If you were lucky enough to receive some Christmas money, hundreds of best-selling, end-of-season styles are up to 70 percent off at Ssense.

Urban Outfitters has just added lots of new items (and further markdowns) to its sale section, including clothing, beauty, home décor, and more.

Thousands of items — from vacuums to kitchenware to kids’ toys — are now up to 50 percent off as part of Walmart’s winter clearance sale.

Take up to 70 percent off furniture, bedding, décor, tableware, and more as part of the brand’s end-of-season sale.

Finally, Zappos’ Winter Clearance Sale runs through December 31. With thousands (upon thousands) of discounted styles to choose from, we’d recommend searching your favorite brand names — we’ve spied Nikes, Uggs, Sorel boots, Crocs, and more — to find the best discounts on offer. (And you can shop the rest of our favorites from the sale here.)

& Other Stories just added lots of new, cold-weather styles — like alpaca-knit sweaters and genuine leather boots — to their sale section.
