Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | The Ultimate Guide


nordstrom anniversary sale

Ah, it’s the week! Nordstrom Anniversary Sale begins! It’s my absolute favorite sale of the year (the only one I shop) and I’m so excited to share my picks! Make sure to keep checking back to stay up to date on all things sale!

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

It’s the most anticipated sale of the entire year (truly) and many people actually get their holiday shopping donezo! You will find brand new fall merchandise for over 40% off — no, this is not a drill. I scored so many cozy goodies from last year. We’re talking over-the-knee boots, cashmere cardigans, kids, shoes, home, beauty, etc. Over 10,000 items marked down to celebrate. Brands including VINCE, Patagonia, Tory Burch, Stuart Weitzman and so many more. It’s the ultimate time to get ahead on all things gifts (I love scoring stocking stuffers). Here’s another FAQ post regarding the sale if you want more inside info!

How can I get early access on July 12th?

If you want to be one of the firsts to shop the sale, you have to be a Nordstrom cardmember. These members shop an entire week earlier than everyone else. This helps with inventory since things sell out very quickly. You’ll receive ‘notes’ which are cash back points to use toward your purchases. Most people save up their points for the sale! You also get exclusive invites to events, product launches and more. The Nordstrom family is one of the best around — it’s the only merchant credit card I own!

Nordstrom Returns

Nordstrom makes returns 100% hassle-free. FREE returns, FREE shipping and absolutely no questions asked. It’s seriously the best return policy of all time and what keeps people coming back! Since items sell out so quickly, I always encourage people to order (even if unsure) because returns are simple and painless.

How to Shop the Sale

Last year, I invested in a lot of basics since I was a new mama. I opted for oversized sweaters, cardigans, shoes (since my feet grew an entire size post pregnancy!) and cozy tees. I suggest taking inventory of your closet — what do you need more of? Go for these first when shopping the sale. Not to sound like a broken recored, but since the sale is highly anticipated; a lot of the items sell out in a matter of minutes. Generally, they will be re-stocked, but it’s not always the case. Personally, I’ll be on the hunt for a new jacket, booties and leggings. This is what I actually ended up buying at the sale from last year! I’m a size 8 for reference.

Also — the sale is available online and in-store. I personally recommend shopping online and picking up in store. Last year, some of the shipping took awhile to arrive (probably due to high volume) and it was super annoying! Picking up in store is 100% free, and usually ready in about 2 hours or less. I’ll also be shopping in store because I’m crazy like that! Gotta help my readers out!
