Back to school season is ramping up, and in case you missed last week’s Urban Outfitters 50 percent off flash sale, you’re in luck. Several of our favorite home items are back on sale today only to make sure you’re prepared with everything you need to start your semester off right. You’ll find savings on a limited number of top-rated items for home, clothing, and even beauty to kickstart the week and the fall season.

Of course, you don’t need to be going to college to take part in these deals—I’m past my college days and definitely eyeing this Crosley Record Player and all the duvet covers.

Peaches Duvet Set, $59 $29.50 for Twin/TwinXL

The Peaches Duvet is fresh and whimsical—in fact, four AT editors bought the shower curtain equivalent to brighten up their bathrooms. Right now, the top-rated duvet set is on sale, which includes a duvet cover, sham cover, and a tote bag for easy transportation. Full/Queen and King sizes are available, too.

Snuggle up with this fleece throw blanket that’s the perfect layer for cold nights when your dorm isn’t feeling so homey. You’ll be toting this throw from late night chats with your friend down the hall to movie nights in the lounge. The added fringe detail gives it just a little more style than your average throw—perfect for students and seasoned apartment dwellers alike.

You’re probably either confronted with cold tile or scratchy carpet in your dorm, so it’s a good idea to warm up the space with a woven rug. This fringed option comes in an assortment of sizes and colors, so whether you need coverage for the whole room or just a mat for when you get out of bed, this rug softens things up.

In the likely event that you have 101 Fujifilm shots lying around, highlight your favorites with a handful of these mini glittery pictures frames strewn about your dresser, desk, or shelves. They also make meaningful going away gifts to your BFF with a photo of you both together.

Harsh overhead dorm lighting feels commercial and definitely not like a space where you want to unwind after a long day. Set the mood with soft LED string lights, such as these extra long copper wire string lights. With 98 feet of light to work with, arrange how you see fit by letting them cascade down your wall, creating a canopy of light over your bed or perhaps spelling out your initials.

In tiny dorm rooms and small apartments, it’s best to maximize your space by going vertical. Keep track of your textbooks or show off your favorite reads with this powder-coated steel shelf that hides underneath a stack of books, so they look like they’re floating. Before you install it over your bed or desk, be sure to check out dorm policy—this might be a better choice for off-campus housing.

Play your tunes and host dorm dance parties with this UO-exclusive green velvet record player from Crosley. If you haven’t already, you’re going to want to start collecting your favorite vinyl records, and when you’ve had enough of the classics you can stream your favorite playlists over Bluetooth.

Sia Knotted Duvet Cover, $149 $74.50 for Full/Queen

A simple yet refined duvet can spark joy for anyone looking for a little zen in their bedroom space. The Sia duvet, available in mint and white, offers up subtle design with puckered micro-knots along the sides for a lightly ruffled look. Shams sold separately.

Lunch Bowl, $10 $5

This polka-dotted terracotta printed ceramic bowl is the perfect dorm room essential for cereal, salad, pasta, ramen, and soup. It also has a plastic lid for traveling across campus, and can be microwaved for when you’re heating up leftovers. There are two other patterns to choose from, but at just $5 each, you can have them all.
