The much anticipated Nordstrom Anniversary Sale begins next week! I cover this sale every year, and today I want to prep you with what it is and why you should shop it.
WHAT IS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE ALL ABOUT?
WHEN DOES THE SALE HAPPEN?
- July 12th – Early Access begins for Nordstrom cardholders only. Sign up for a card to shop early and get a $60 bonus note!
- July 19th – August 4th – Sale opens to everyone
WHAT KINDS OF THINGS ARE ON SALE?
WHAT SHOULD BE ON YOUR SHOPPING LIST?
Fall clothes for sure! This sale is for new arrivals for the coming season, not the leftovers from summer. I focus on higher ticket items and staples like boots and booties, jeans – get the best jeans discounted (!!). I try some tops, bags, activewear, makeup/beauty, and home decor, too. This year I might check out more of the men’s clothes–Benson’s been increasingly interested in shopping the sale each year.
Some of my favorites from previous years:
- The best Wit & Wisdom Ab-solution jeans go on sale in several colors each year!
- High-waisted Zella leggings have been on sale for the last several years
- Caslon knit blazers that feel like sweatshirts are usually 40% off
- The long cardigans that I get asked about ALL THE TIME, every year, without fail. Don’t miss out on these!
- This throw blanket has become an obsession in my family. We have 3 now, and they’re SO good! Usualy around $25 during the sale.
- Beauty Blenders – I stock up on these during the sale!
- Knee-high boots and ankle boots
These oversized cardigans are my FAVORITE and I always get them during the sale! The blue jeans, black leggings, white top, and ankle boots, and red-orange flats are more of my favorite sale purchases from past years.
HOW CAN I SHOP THIS SALE THE SMART WAY?
Shop Early Access. The sale opens 1 week earlier to everyone who has a Nordstrom card. Items and sizes sell out FAST, and they often do NOT restock. Some items are exclusive only to the sale. Shopping early is totally worth it. Find out more info, like how you can get a $60 bonus note (!!), and sign up for one HERE!
HOW CAN I GET THE BEST STUFF?
Get Early Access by signing up for a Nordstrom card HERE. You get to shop 1 week before everyone else, and it really is worth it!
