My *favorite* sale of the year starts this week, and I want to tell you all about it! If you know me, or you’ve followed along with me within this space for a while, then you might already know a little about the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, and why I love it!

I wanted to create this post to tell you what it is and why it literally is one of the best sales of the year! Personally, I’ve been shopping this sale for over 10 years. My mom and I would go shop this sale before school started when I was in high school, so this sale is special, because it’s something I’ve shared/done with my mom for a long time. Before I share a little about the sale, below is a list of my personal favorite items I think help you get the most bang for your buck that are worthy items to shop for during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.

Great Wardrobe Fall and Winter Staples to Shop For During the Sale

  1. Neutral Booties
  2. A Great Pair of Everyday Jeans
  3. Leather Jacket
  4. Cashmere/Wool Sweater
  5. Turtleneck/Mockneck Sweater
  6. Black Leggings
  7. Cozy Cardigan
  8. Fall Dress
  9. Everyday Bra (my favorite every day bra is included in the sale!)
  10. Nice Coat for Fall/Winter
  11. Comfortable Flats or Mules
  12. Barefoot Dreams Blankets (great gift item for someone at Christmas!)
  13. Sneakers
  14. Fall Hat
  15. Designer Handbag

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

I also love this sale because unlike most sales that have end-of-season clearance items for their biggest sales, this sale is the opposite! It is all new fall/transitional pieces that go on sale before they go back to their regular price after the anniversary sale is over! See why I love this sale now? 🙂 The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is really the BIGGEST and best sale of the year! 🙂 This sale at Nordstrom  gives you the chance to stock up on all of your favorite fall items at incredibly discounted prices. Not only do you get a head start on fall, but you can also find all sorts of timeless favorites at a huge discount, like my spanx faux leather leggings I’m hoping to snag again this year!

When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

When you sign up to be a Nordy Club member you get access to the Nordstrom Sale early! That means that before the shelves have been swept, you can grab your favorites – including all of the items I will be sharing on my blog and Instagram!

All cardmembers can shop Early Access starting July 16 – shop even earlier depending on your Nordy Club status. Earliest shopping can start July 12 for Icon status. Anniversary Sale is open to everyone July 28–August 8. Prices go up August 9. You can shop the sale in open stores during normal business hours. Online shopping begins at 3:00am ETS/12am PST.

How do I become a Nordy Club Member and get early access?

It’s SO simple and so worth it to become a Nordy Club Member! All you have to do is sign up for a Nordstrom credit card! When you use your Nordstrom Card in stores or online at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook, or Trunk Club you get 3 times the points! These points can eventually be exchanged for Nordy Notes, like cash back! It’s an amazing deal. My mom and I love getting our Nordy Notes in the mail (or email!) 😉 ALSO- When you sign up for the Nordy card, you instantly get a $60 Nordstrom Note (their version of store credits for points earned through your purchases) to use towards the NSALE!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Pro Tips

Stock Up: Think about items you use regularly and take advantage of stocking up for the season, or even year! Think Christmas gifts or hair and beauty favs to stock up on while they’re on major sale!

Buy Now Wear Later: While it might seem early to start shopping for fall merchandise – trust me, it’s worth it! The motto for this sale since items go so quickly is to buy now, return later if something doesn’t fit. The really nice thing is that Nordstrom will price match an item you purchased when it was on sale. SO- even if an item doesn’t work or you need a different size but then it sells out… hang on to it to exchange for the size you need when it does get restocked. Or, you can always return that item later, for free!

Excited to share my wishlist for the sale this year next!

with love,
