Just in time for holiday travel (and gifting!) season, we are pretty darn excited to inform you that our go-to airport essential, the famous Longchamp Le Pliage bag, is on sale at both Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack right now. And, yes, that includes the best-selling expandable tote (was $215, now $130) that unzips to fit all our extra souvenirs and last-minute carry-ons.

The iconic zip-top tote is a favorite of both PureWow editors and readers alike, but it has also earned the royal seal of approval. ICYMI, both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have been spotted carrying Longchamp bags, so you know they're the crème de la crème when it comes to chic and timeless style. But beyond that, we adore how lightweight and durable Longchamp totes are, whether we're lugging them to the office or stuffing them into overhead bins.

And since the coveted bags don't often go on sale, we'd say these Longchamp Le Pliage deals are seriously worth celebrating. Here are our top picks to snag for a steal before they inevitably sell out.

Pretty much indispensable for chic travel, this leather-trimmed nylon tote is water-resistant, folds flat in your luggage and can expand to nearly double its size with the addition of a zip-in middle panel. The nylon is also wonderfully easy to clean, so you don’t have to stress quite so much over unexpected spills. And it’s now a whopping $85 off! Per one reviewer, “[This is a] great size bag and the straps [are] comfortable. I used it for my makeup bag, electronics essentials, medicine/vitamins, long wallet, keys, baby snacks and [a] baby blanket. It all fit without making the bag look bulky." Oh, and if blue isn't your color, it's also available in this stunning pomegranate hue (was $215, now $130).

You can also head over to Nordstrom's main site to snag the medium version of this OG tote, which is the perfect size for everyday use. This one is made of a sleek coated canvas material that's a bit more sturdy and structured than nylon, and is roomy enough to fit *all* you need for the day, including a tablet, MacBook Air and even a water bottle, per one reviewer. Now that it’s nearly $70 off, it’s pretty much a no-brainer if you need a dependable bag to take you into the new year.

If you like to pack it all, whether you're just heading to the gym or setting off on an exciting day trip, the large Le Pliage tote just might be the pick for you. It's constructed from the brand's durable and flexible nylon fabric, so it can easily handle everything you stuff into it, from an extra sweater and your emergency makeup bag to a tablet or small laptop. Plus, it has a water-resistant lining so if your favorite water bottle leaks, cleanup is sure to be a breeze.
