Think of today’s sales roundup as your outdoor-dinner-party checklist — once the weather warms again, that is. There’s a decorator-recommended patio chair that’s actually comfortable, a set of Pinterest-worthy tumblers made from recycled glass, and some rarely on sale loafers that’ll zhuzh up any outfit. (Oh, and with Mother’s Day on the way, we snuck in a few gifts for her, too.)
This vintage-inspired kitchen tool opens cans and bottles — and looks nice enough to leave out on the counter.
The ceramic pans in this four-piece set from GreenPan have a diamond-reinforced nonstick coating, making them exceptionally durable and easy to clean. “I am done with my old nonstick pans,” writes one five-star reviewer. “The ceramic interior is really the best of both worlds … Easy to clean, and it browns beautifully.”
If you plan to host outdoors this summer, here’s an excellent deal on a weather-resistant acacia-wood dining table. It folds up when not in use, but reviewers say it looks right at home indoors as well.
Should you need some chairs to go with it, three interior designers we spoke to recommend these from CB2. They’re “perfect for a small space,” says design expert Amy Azzarito, who adds that the handwoven piping “tends to have more ‘give’ than a hard-backed chair, making it more comfortable.” For a limited time, they’re 20 percent off at CB2, along with lots of other outdoor furniture.
And for the tabletop, a set of handblown tumblers made from recycled glass. (They’re on sale in mint green, too.)
Over at Nordstrom, you can take a rare 15 percent off the waxy, cult-favorite Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz pencil. Strategist beauty columnist Rio Viera-Newton says it’s “the best of the best” for shaping and filling in brows for a natural look.
Lots of end-of-season styles are half off at COS, including this wide-sleeved turtleneck. It’s made from soft, temperature-regulating merino wool that’s just the right weight for layering.
Speaking of plaid, Lisa Says Gah is taking 20 percent off everything (yes, everything) for a limited time. That includes this checked V-necked dress, which is still in stock in sizes XS to XXXL.
We would also put the discount toward this pair of Vagabond’s rarely on sale suede loafers, a staple for clear spring days.
