Coach Just Quietly Put 100 of Its Best-Selling Items on Sale for Less Than $200

Getty Images

Coach has recently been doing the most after being quiet for a couple of months. To be fair, Barbra Streisand’s face on a sweatshirt is pretty hard to follow up. But with Jenny From the Block designing her own bag and Coach’s most recent collection featuring artwork by Jean-Michel Basquiat, the brand has once again channeled a very New York energy, just without an EGOT recipient this time. And it’s not stopping there.

We expect Coach to round out the year with Jennifer Lopez wearing a ton of its pieces and an incredible sale, like it almost always does. And while this year’s biggest Coach sale is surely yet to come, the brand has quietly added 100 best-selling items to a secret under-$200 sale.

It happened so quietly even I, a shopping writer, didn’t know about it until I was browsing the site trying to find the cardigan

Potential arms sale to Taiwan could put China’s east coast in the crosshairs

MELBOURNE, Australia — The U.S. State Department’s approval of the potential sales of air- and ground-launched, long-range land-attack missiles is a marked departure from previous American policy of only selling so-called defensive weapons to Taiwan.

This broadens the options for the self-governing island to mount not only a ground-based counterstrike in the event of Chinese ballistic missile attack on Taiwan, but would also enable it to disrupt a potential Chinese invasion by striking ports, air bases and other military targets across the Taiwan Strait.

The U.S. Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced Wednesday that the State Department approved three separate arms packages to Taiwan under the Foreign Military Sales program.

The potential $1.8 billion deal is for 135 Boeing AGM-84H SLAM-ER missiles; 11 Lockheed Martin M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems; and six sets of Collins Aerospace’s MS-110 multispectral long-range oblique photography pods.

The DSCA notification did not identify the aircraft

My husband bought a property in Florida, but only put his name on the deed. Will his adult children inherit this home?

Dear Moneyist,

My husband and I have been married for 25 years. We do not have children together but he has children from a previous marriage.

We are retired now, and he bought property in Florida for us to live in. My name is not on the deed of the property, and he has not made a will yet. I keep complaining to him about it.

The Moneyist: My husband earned less than me for a decade, so I paid more towards our expenses. I want him to repay me

If he should die without a will, will his adult children and grandchildren be entitled to the property and house? Hopefully, you will be able to answer this question and set my mind at ease.

Carla

Dear Carla,

Your husband appears to have control issues at worst or, at best, problems with being direct and transparent. This is not the

Have you ever wondered while planning for your future as to why certain assets evoke so much loyalty and attachment? Come to think of it, you may have invested in them dispassionately in pursuit of good returns, but somewhere along the way they may have acquired a persona of their own.

Assets with emotional connect

Real estate and gold are two such assets that have a huge emotional connect. Gold is understandable as, in our culture, if you are sell physical gold, people assume that you face really hard times. Other forms of gold such as Gold ETFs, luckily, are easier to deal with.

But what about real estate? Let me recount a couple of interactions we had in the past few months. One of them was with a woman in her

Courtesy/InStyle

Sweater weather brings out the extremes in people. On one end, there are Ralph Lauren Polo Bear sweater obsessives, usually guys who have read every single issue of GQ and spend all day on Grailed. And on the other, there are those of us who don’t need a bear riding a skateboard on a sweater vest, who prefer the simple pleasures of something like a classic $100 buttercream Everlane cashmere crew.

Everlane’s best-selling cashmere is best-selling for a reason, and it’s all on sale for just $75 today only. The classic crew comes in over 10 colors and the sale price is practically begging you to buy more than one. 

Even though the fabric is perfect for bundling up, if you’d like to show some skin there’s the cashmere V-neck. And if you’re someone who oscillates between cold and hot easily, there’s a cashmere tee that layers perfectly under

Google Assistant will now wait for you on the line if your call is put on hold

It is never a pleasing experience when your call is put on hold. Google wants to save you the trouble of waiting anxiously and making good use of those lost minutes with a new Hold for Me feature in the Phone app. This new feature, which is currently being tested as a preview on the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G, will make the Google Assistant wait for you on the line when someone puts your call on hold. The virtual assistant will then wait for someone to come back on the line, and once the person on the other end is ready to speak, it will alert you with a sound cue, vibration, or an on-screen prompt. Essentially, say goodbye to repetitive hold music forever. 

“Hold for Me is powered by Google’s Duplex technology, which not only recognizes hold music but also understands the difference between a

Tesla CEO Elon Musk appears to be selling more multimillion-dollar California homes after vowing on Twitter that he “will own no house” earlier in May, much to the dismay of his girlfriend.

Musk purchased the homes that match the Zillow for-sale-by-owner listing’s description over several years starting in 2015, according to Business Insider.

The properties may be split up for interested buyers, according to the listing, which includes at least one private pool.
