In this week’s roundup of the best deals, we’ve found an Anglepoise design classic for almost 50 percent off, an abundance of cut-price cashmere, and a cheeky 25 percent off new-in rugs at La Redoute. We’ve also spotted quite a few on-sale Valentine’s Day gift options, for whoever you’re buying for this year.
There are some astonishing savings in La Redoute’s homewares sale — including a further 10 percent off most items. If you’re in the market for a rug, we love this slightly textured kilim option.
If you’d rather a more colourful rug, this new-in kilim rug is 25 percent off with the code “NEW.”
Pick up these leather Rag and Bone slides at half price from the Outnet, and wear them smugly in the summer.
While we’re perusing the Outnet sale, allow us a fantasy shopping moment with these Alexander Calder–inspired earrings.
Just like the Rains jackets, this tote is weather-proof and water-resistant, and has a ten-litre capacity. It zips closed, and would make a very decent overnight bag (or a carry-on bag, either).
The larger version of that tote is on sale too, in black or navy.
An immensely wearable pair of (faux) leather boots from Kurt Geiger.
When we scoured Amazon for the best-reviewed weighted blanket, the Buzio was one of the highest-rated options (78 percent of reviewers gave it five stars). It’s currently on sale for £65 (down from £180).
We spotted these crewneck cashmere jumpers, in a slew of colours, on sale from size XXS to 3XL.
The men’s version of those cashmere crewnecks is also on sale, but for a less substantial discount.
There’s a healthy saving on this all-occasions Nars eyeshadow palette at Look Fantastic.
At just over £25, this Aesop masque would be a delightful Valentine’s Day gift.
These desk lamps are versatile enough to use in the office, at your bedside, or even as a small floor lamp (when fully extended). We like the classic squared base of the 1227 model, and if jet black isn’t in your colour scheme, the dove grey is also on sale (although at £119, it’s £6 more expensive).
Also on sale at Amazon, a mini smart speaker so useful that three Strategist UK staffers bought it at Christmas.
There’s nothing wrong with being a little extra around Valentine’s Day, and a signature lips clutch from Lulu Guinness is the ideal accessory. The acrylic handbag is kitschy without being zany, and comes with a detachable gold chain strap so it can be worn as a cross-body, if you’d rather.
We think this platter would look delightful brimming with freshly made French toast, at a special Sunday brunch.
