The famed Nordstrom Anniversary Sale happens every Summer. It officially kicks off on July 19th, so midnight, Thursday night. However, they also offer early access (one week early) to Nordstrom Card holders. That’s how they got me years ago… The sale is a good one if you’re already a Nordstrom shopper, or looking for some new Fall pieces for your wardrobe. BUT, if you’re looking for a killer sale to end all sales, deals that you would find at a Marshalls, TJ Maxx, or Nordstrom Rack, you won’t find that here. These prices will go up as soon as the sale is over and many are very low but they aren’t those unicorn clearance priced items that you find when you’re on the hunt.
If you are looking to purchase designer items, this is a good sale for you. Or, like I said, if you’re looking for some staple Fall pieces, fresh on the scene, this is a good sale for you. I like to shop for items that can be mixed with my existing wardrobe, so blazers, solid shirts, cardigans, and of course shoes. It’s never NOT a good time to buy more shoes.
Below are my picks from this year’s sale, separated by category. Here’s the kicker, everything I picked is UNDER $150. If you see something you like, you can click the heart to favorite it and you will receive an alert if the price drops during the Anniversary Sale, or even at a later time. I placed my first order at noon on the first day of early access and about a third of my choices were sold out by the time I finished entering my cc info. They often restock items, but not always. I made sure that all my picks below are available as of now (Saturday, July 13th). But who knows for how long… My suggestion to you is, if you see something you love, just get the credit card, make the early purchase, pay it off and close it. Unless of course, you’re a Nordstrom regular, in which case, this is a great card because you earn one point per dollar you spend in stores and online at Nordstrom, NordstromRack and HauteLook. For every 2,000 points, you’ll receive a $20 Nordstrom Note that you can spend online or in stores. It doesn’t sound like much, but trust me, it adds up quickly.
Last note… my picks are extremely tailored to my specific style (of course, that makes sense). If you follow my blog because you like to pull inspiration from my style and want to see more of something, comment below. I skipped the designer bags, all athletic wear, and more, but I would be happy to pick from those as well. Happy Shopping!
