For all my hardcore shoppers and fashion lovers, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is coming up! I get so excited for this sale. Below are all the details you need to know about this sale!
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is an annual sale (so it happens once a year) where most of the brand new Summer and Fall arrivals are marked down to sale prices. These include high-end and well-known brands, and they are marked down at an incredible rate when other retailers have it at full price. The sale lasts for about two weeks – more on the sale dates & longevity below!
In my opinion, the NSale is the perfect opportunity to stock up on Fall items. Why? Well, because (good quality) Fall pieces are usually pricier i.e. sweaters, boots, jackets, etc.
When is the Sale?
Early Access: July 12 – July 19
Public Access: July 20 – August 5
After August 5, 2018, these marked down prices will go back to their original price.
How Can I Get Early Access?
Early access (starts July 12, 2018) to the sale is for Nordstrom Cardmembers only. This means that these individuals who have a Nordstrom credit card can view and purchase items from the sale before it is available to the public (July 20, 2018). They pretty much get dibs on all the amazing items that are marked down.
I’ll be honest, A LOT of the stuff sells out quickly. Occasionally, Nordstrom will restock some of the items, but it is not guaranteed. So if there is something you are eyeing or really want to purchase, I highly recommend becoming a Nordstrom Cardmember. In the past year, I would wait for the public access and that’s when my favorite items that I am willing to spend on were all sold out. Even when Nordstrom re-stocked them, I couldn’t get them quickly enough before they sold out again. So lesson learned, I became a card member!
So if you want to be like me and become a Nordstrom cardmember, you can apply here! I believe you get some bonus Nordstrom rewards when you sign up.
Where Can I Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
You can shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale on the Nordstrom website or at your local Nordstrom store. Shameless Plug – you can also shop at my blog. I’ll be sharing my top picks, what I purchased, sizing, etc. Very similar to last year’s post, I gave a thorough review on the items I purchased, recommended sizing, and what I kept.
For all my Canadians, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is available in-store only.
If you are curious what is part of the sale, Nordstrom recently released a catalog of some of the items. Already, there are several pieces I am eyeing from the catalog and this is only a portion of the sale.
Also, you can shop your items online and pick them up at the store. This is my favorite option to shop the NSale.
What Should I Shop For?
I mentioned above, but I believe that this sale should be taken advantage of to purchase Fall items! Seriously, sweaters, jackets, boots, cardigans, etc. That way you don’t need to purchase them when it gets cooler because 1) you have it already 2) you won’t freeze your butt off the day the temperature decides to drop.
As a Chicagoan, investing and wearing good quality Fall clothes is soo important. But those things come with a high price tag. Hence, why I believe in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’m going to purchase them anyway, so why not buy it when it is a fraction of the cost?
I will also be sharing a collage of items I think are worth purchasing on the blog as well as in my InstaStory! So stay tuned for those!
These are some of the things I’m eyeing:
Water-Resistant Suede Booties – if you live in the Midwest, you know how important it is to have water-resistant boots!
J.Crew Wool Coat
Luggage Set (2 different sizes – such a steal!)
Over the Knee Boots
Do You Have Any Additional Tips?
Aside from becoming a Nordstrom cardmember to get early access, I do have one more tip. After you have browsed the catalog, bookmark any of your favorite items. As soon as the sale is live, you can easily get to it and shop it without the risk of it selling out!
I also recommend shopping online. You don’t run the risk of Nordstrom potentially not having what you are looking for. Plus, they have free shipping and returns. So it is a win-win.
If you have any additional questions about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, don’t hesitate to ask. If you need any recommendations, I’m your girl!
