The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is almost here! Are you ready?
Hello, dazzling babes!
Today is just a quick post about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale which actually started yesterday for Nordstrom cardholders. I really wanted to bring you this post earlier in the week but the time just got away from me! Does that ever happen to you? Even now in the summertime, it’s still a struggle to keep up with all that I have to do. Any productivity tips/hacks are surely welcomed!
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is unlike any other end-of-summer sale because it is the one time of year that Nordstrom marks down brand new items at the beginning of the season. That means you’ll be able to get the latest trends for fall and winter at a discounted prices. Now you can understand why this is one of the biggest sales of the year and why so many bloggers rave about it!
When does the sale start?
If you are a Nordstrom cardholder then you have first dibs to the sale! If you are a level 4 cardholder (you spend $10,000 or more) then you have access on July 11th before anyone else. Since I’m a level 1 cardholder I will be able to start shopping a day later on July 12th. For those of you who don’t have a card, the sale will run from July 20th- to August 5th.
This will be the first year that I will be shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. As a newbie to the sale, I don’t have any examples of past items that I have purchased but I will be creating a wish list in each category beauty, fashion, home, and accessories. I’m also going to be sharing my experience as a first-time Anniversary Sale shopper! Here are some things that I’ve done to prep for the sale in order to make the most of my purchases.
Just a Few of the Items on Sale
Clear Out the Closet
I went through each item of clothing I own and gave away anything that is no longer wearable or anything that I feel doesn’t flatter me anymore. Anything that is still wearable but I don’t want I will try selling on Poshmark. This will also be my first time using Poshmark, so if anyone has any tips on how to sell clothes on the site I would greatly appreciate it!
Decide on what is needed to complete your wardrobe
Now that you have made space for new items decide on what it is that you really need. Do you need to replace all of the white tees that you gave away? Or do you need a new pair of sold denim jeans because the ones you have are totally stretched out? This year I am looking for basics that I can mix and match easily. I want to pare down my wardrobe a bit and only purchase high-quality clothes that will last for years to come. I would also like to add in just a few trendy items that I can have fun styling.
Check out the catalog HERE.

Shop early morning or Online
From what I’ve heard the store gets pretty crazy packed during the early days of the sale. For that reason, getting to the store in the early hours of the day is the key to avoiding the crazy crowds. Or you can stay home and simply shop online. You always have the option to pick up the items you order online in the store or you can have them shipped to your house. And with free shipping and returns without a minimum order, you don’t have to worry about losing money due to shipping costs.
Will you be shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year? And do you have any tips for shopping for the sale?
