This morning we have a little extra “pep in our step” because the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here! By now you are probably well aware as it seems to be the latest internet craze, but with good reasoning of course! If you’re like us, shopping sales- especially such a large one- can be stressful. To help you shop the sale with ease, we have put together a Nordstrom Anniversary sale guide to help you get the hottest deals and maximize the most out of your wallet!
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and why are we so obsessed?
I know your probably asking yourself, what is all the hype?? This sale is unlike any other because Nordstrom discounts their NEW arrivals that have not yet hit the shelves up to 60% off. Think fall/winter sweaters, booties, jeans, leggings, jackets etc. Just talking about it is making me crave #sweaterweather. The sale will also include makeup and beauty products, home decor, and menswear so you are guaranteed to find something for the entire family.
When is it? How can I get early access?
If you are a Nordstrom card holder the sale starts early for you and begins today, July 13th. There is still time to sign up for a card if you would like- follow this linkto for fast an easy approval and begin shopping immediately. Not to worry, if you don’t have the Nordstrom gold ticket in your wallet the sale becomes open to the public on July 21st. If you chose to forgo applying for the Nordstrom debit or credit card, we still recommend signing up for “Nordstrom Rewards”. This is a completely free program and you will get a $10 reward to use at the public sale just for signing up! The sale will end on August 6th, however all remaining available items will remain on the shelves but at their normal non-discounted rate.
What are some tips to shopping the sale?
The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is a great time to stock up on staple items that you can wear again and again. We recommend making a list and referencing the online catalog to pick out key pieces you are wanting to snag and setting a budget for yourself to avoid impulse purchases and overspending. Trust us, if you walk into the sale without a clear idea of what you need/should pass on you will end up with a thousand and one items in your cart and be left feeling like a crazy lady running around (speaking from experience here) :). We also recommend focusing on Nordstrom’s affordable brands such as BP., Lush, Leith, Free People, TopShop, Steve Madden, Sole Society, Madewell and Socialite to get the most bang for your buck. However, if there is a designer item that has been on your wish list for months, this is the time to buy! (Think about it, these Stuart Weitzman OTK bootsfor 50%, uhhh, yes please.)
