Every year all the bloggers in the land, and then some, stir up the excitement surrounding the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. There’s a good reason why. It’s one of the longest, and best sales all year long. Nordstrom has such a large inventory, it’s hard not to shop there. Of course, I love other brands and stores, but Nordstrom just has it all, and lots of it. Not only are clothes on sale, but home decor, fitness, and beauty items are included as well!
The sale lasts comes at the same time each year, so it’s always anticipated pretty heavily. The items on sale are Fall items that will be there after the sale, but just raise back up to normal prices, so these items will be around for a whole other season!
When Is It?
Early Access – Thursday, July 12 – Thursday, July 19
Public Access – Friday, July 20 – Sunday, August 5
What is ‘Early Access‘ & How Can I Shop It?
There are two parts to the Nordstrom Sale – Early Access and Public Access. To get Early Access you need to be a Nordstrom Credit or Retail Cardholder. There are perks to being a cardholder beside getting early access to their sales. You can also earn points which turn into ‘Nordstrom Notes’. After so many points, you essentially get free gift cards! They even have double and triple point days too. This year, when you get approved for your card, you’ll get an automatic $40 bonus note to spend that day! The best part about being a cardholder during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is that you get the first pick of items before it goes live to the public. There are always those ‘hot’ items that sell out pretty quick, so early access members are able to get a jump start on those.
But, no worries if you don’t have a card. You’ll be able to shop the sale when it goes live to the public on Friday, July 20! I know I mentioned things sell out, but they can come back in stock. Definitely keep checking back on the site if something you want had sold out pretty quickly!
What Should I Buy?
I’ll be sharing my favorite picks during Early Access and Public Access for you guys via blog posts, shop page, and on Instagram! The items aren’t up on their site yet, but you can check out the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog.
Each year, some top sellers include cardigans, casual tees, jeans, block heel booties, knee-high boots, and tennis shoes – both athletic and athleisure. Expect to see a lot of items like these selling out, but lots of other cute items in stock as well!
