Hi everyone! I was so excited when I heard they were going to bring back the Anniversary Sale this year after they had previously cancelled it, since fall fashion is probably my favorite (plaid, anyone?). I’ve done a deep dive through all of the items in the sale and there are SO MANY good things! Just a quick reminder, don’t feel any pressure to buy anything from the sale! If you don’t have the budget for it, it’s okay!
WHAT IS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE?
Each year, Nordstrom has a huge sale in the summer with highly anticipated fall fashion items on sale! It’s the perfect time to stock up on some trendy fall basics, such as boots, jackets & coats at a great price. This year’s sale was delayed by a month, so we’re going to be even closer to fall weather while we’re shopping. Once the sale period is over, the items will go back to full price and will be sold through the fall & winter.
WHEN IS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE?
Here are the important dates for the anniversary sale this year:
Nordstrom cardholders get early access to the sale, and can start shopping on the date that corresponds to their tier. You can check your status on your account on the Nordstrom website. Everyone can shop the sale on August 19th!
TIPS FOR SHOPPING THE SALE
Make a list of what you’re shopping for! I always find that it helps to make a list so that you don’t go crazy buying everything in the sale (I have a bad habit of impulse purchases if I don’t do this beforehand!). Think about what you already have in your closet and what you may be looking to wear or use in the fall season. This year I’m shopping for:
- Booties/Combat Boots
- Casual sneakers
- A staple versatile coat
- A new pair of jeans for a good price
- New workout gear
- A choker necklace that I can use to stack with other necklaces
- A long-line vest
- Some basic versatile fall tops
Set a budget! This is the most important thing to do before you shop! I have to remind myself not to go crazy, and I have a spending limit for when I hit buy in my shopping cart.
Add items from the preview to your wish list – then you can pare items down and add them to bag to shop quickly! I absolutely LOVE that they released an online preview this year! I’ve been adding items to my wish list since July 24th and I logged on today to pare them down to my budget (since I get way too excited about fall clothes!). I’m also going to pare my list down 30 mins before the sale opens. I like to sleep on things and have a fresh perspective when I wake up!
