Hi friends! It’s that time, the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (also called the #nsale) starts in just a few days. It has turned into one of the most popular sales of the year because… 

This specific  Nordstrom sale is a favorite because you get to score brand new fall pieces on major sale BEFORE the season starts and they go up to full prices! Nordstrom is seriously the best retailer for so many reasons, they have great brands, a range of price points, plus free shipping & free returns. I plan to make this shopping experience as easy and helpful for you as I can. I will be covering clothing, beauty, mens, EVERYTHING! Although, I want to focus on items I LOVE and staple pieces I think are worth saving on NOW!

Important Dates: 

Nordstrom cardmembers are able to shop 8 days earlier. If you don’t already have a card, don’t worry there’s still time to get yours before the public sale starts!

Apply for a Nordstrom Card

July 11: Level 4 cardmembers get to pre-shop the sale in stores only.

July 12-19: All cardmembers get to shop Early Access in stores and online.

July 20-August 5: The sale opens to the public.

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is unlike any other sale because for a limited time, you will get access to brand NEW Fall and Summer styles at major discounted prices. So many amazing designer and brand name pieces are on sale for only a few weeks before they go up in price. Oh, and there are only limited quantities throughout the sale! It may be hard to imagine buying items for Fall, but think staples & layering pieces, sweaters, booties, all items you KNOW you will want/need come september/november, but they are NOW on sale.

When is the Sale?

The Anniversary Sale is from July 20th to August 5th. However, Nordstrom cardholders can shop the sale early starting July 12th. In order to shop during Early Access dates, you must have a Nordstrom Credit Card. The card has no annual fees and you get a $40 Nordstrom Note just for signing up! You can apply for the card here.

SIDENOTE: I am not one to have a bunch of credit cards, so I totally understand if you don’t want to apply!  If you don’t have /or want a Nordstrom card, the Public Access begins July 20th and they usually restock some of the popular items the first day of the public access!

INTERESTED?  Early Access will only be open to Nordstrom cardmembers otherwise you will have to wait until the Public Access which doesn’t start until July 20th. If you don’t want to miss out, I highly recommend applying for the card. There are great benefits and having it for this specific sale is worth it because you will see items go very fast, like within a day your size is gone!

Some examples of the benefits you will get after you are approved for the card:
  • Earn 2 points per dollar spent in stores and online at NordstromNordstrom RackHautelook and Trunk Club.
  • Plus, get a $40 bonus Note when you make any purchase with them on your new card the day you’re approved.

How to Shop:

The best way to shop will be online at Nordstrom.com as they always have free shipping, free returns and even a buy online pick up in store option.  Like I said, I will be doing my best this whole month to cover the sale with updates (here on the blog, Instagram, and Instagram Stories/Swipe Up), restock alerts, and even driving 2 hours to my closest Nordstrom to do a try-on session. There are a ton of items that go on sale, so if you are looking for a breakdown, come here to my blog and ill have them broken down into categories under the NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE tab at the top of my blog.

As a reminder: there are a ton of pre-fall items, so you’ll be able to grab staples and pricier items that you’ll live in all season (keep in mind: denim, booties, jackets etc.) all at sale pricing!
