Some sales have big blowout moments, like Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale or Amazon's Prime Day. There's a ton of buildup and PR, and to be honest, sometimes, it can consequently feel overwhelming and/or quickly picked over. That's why I'm a big fan of the sly little side sale. (Don't forget to bookmark the page with all of our sale coverage.) Usually, they're not hyped up a ton and, accordingly, actually have a ton of hidden gems. Nordstrom's River Island sale falls in that category (25% off now through February 2), so I had to take a peek, and I was actually surprised at how many great items I found. I scrolled through all 14 pages of products and culled the best here, all while taking mental notes about which products I'm going to text to my friends. The sale just got started, so start scrolling while the getting is good—before my friends get there!
