In this week’s roundup of the best deals, we’ve found some cashmere jumpers for half price, a highly-rated vacuum cleaner for a mere £100, and coats from Shrimps for the cheapest we’ve ever seen them.

Urban Outfitters have an additional 30 percent off selected sale items with the code SALEONSALE. That includes this durable drawstring backpack from Sandqvist.

These Vans are a healthy 33 percent off, at £50 (down from £75) and available in a selection of sizes. We don’t think they’ll stick around for long.

If you would rather a simpler colour palette, we also unearthed a pair of classic Adidas Superstars in navy.

In other sale news, the Outnet has up to 85 percent off on certain items. We spotted these two Shrimps coats the other day, and they remain the cheapest we’ve ever seen them.

We are taken with the sweet Peter Pan collar on this coat.


Not everybody has the space (or the need) for a large set of knives, and this three-piece set by Orient is Amazon’s best rated, featuring three knives total. We first spotted it when we scoured Amazon for the highest-rated knives, and it’s now £61 (down from £100).

If you want a larger range of knives, this colour-coded set by Nouva has 265 reviews in total, with the five-piece set including a chef’s knife, bread knife, carving knife, a multipurpose knife, and a paring knife. It’s £22, down from £50.

When we searched Amazon for the best-rated vacuum cleaners, the Vax upright Air Stretch Vacuum was one of the most popular. It has 3,494 reviews in total, with 86 percent of those being five stars. Four-hundred and eleven reviews (over ten percent) said the powerful suction was one of its best features, and due to its heftier size, customers said it stayed upright and rarely toppled over. It’s currently just £100 (down from £260).

If you want a cordless vacuum, we found it hard to look away from the saving on this Dyson model.

If you’re on the hunt for a new bed, this handsome velvet and bronze fellow is 40 percent off in the sale.

We would be remiss if we didn’t mention that La Redoute have up 40 percent off across the site, with the code SPRING. The discount on this extra-larger Berber-style rug is a particularly enticing saving.

Consider this large faux sheepskin also.

Mother’s Day is around the corner — this sleeping mask and eye-mask set would be a thoughtful gift.

If you’d like to spend a little more, this three-wick candle smells woody and spicy, and has a respectable 400-hour burn time.
