Save up to 71%: Nordstrom Rack is having a crazy sale on Persol sunglasses right now and all available styles cost $100. Normal retail prices hover up around $350 which means you’ll save up to 71 percent if you shop now. With a history dating back to 1917, Persol epitomizes Italian luxury sunglasses and its vintage frames are highly collectible. Now owned by Luxottica, the frames are more widely available than in past decades but the styles are no less iconic. If you’re in need of a new pair of everyday shades, don’t pass on this sale — it’ll be hard to find prices like this again. — John Zientek
Pendleton Towel Sale
Save 13%: Beach season is around the corner meaning it’s time to take stock of the towels you currently own. If you’ve had the same towel for the past few years and it’s showing some wear and tear, time to upgrade. Oregon-based brand, Pendelton, knows how to make great blankets with style. Now you can save 13 percent on these soft cotton towels. Take them surfing, canoeing, or beach camping and they’ll do all the heavy water lifting. — Meg Lappe
Save 25%: If you’ve had more than a few glasses of wine, martinis or really any alcohol at all in your time drinking, you’ve likely used a Riedel glass. The first company to create glasses tailored to different wines while keeping well below the line of unaffordability, the Austrian company remains a dominant force in its market. Luckily, today a collection of wine and liquor-serving glasses are getting price cuts of 25 percent. Glasses for martinis, pinot noir, cabernet, chardonnay and others are included. The sale runs for today and today only. — Will Price
Arai Defiant Pro-Cruise Mimetic Helmet
Save 46%: When it comes to motorcycle helmets, it’s the one piece of gear you shouldn’t feel guilty about spending extra money on. Afterall, it’s the only thing protecting your head as you barrel down the highway at 75mph. However, it’s entirely understandable if you don’t want to blow your whole budget on an $800 helmet.
Well, today is your lucky day because the top-o-the-line Arai Defiant Pro-Cruise Mimetic Helmet has been marked down from $800 to $430. You get all the best functionality, style, ventilation and aerodynamics of Arai’s top-dollar lid in addition to the Pro Shade System, which can run an extra $100-plus as an add-on with other helmets. The cheek pads also contain integrated space for a third-party Bluetooth communication system and speaker. — Bryan Campbell
