The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is right around the corner! During the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale brand new Fall items are marked down making it the perfect time to stock up on your fall wardrobe— just trying to save you money! There are also a ton of other home and beauty buys!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts:
If you’re a Nordstrom Cardholder you can start shopping on July 12th at 12:30pm EST through July 19th
Public Access: Friday July 18th- August 4th. Prices go up on the 5th.
In the past the sale has gone live before the stores open so I generally purchase everything I can online and then go into the store when it opens to get the items I wasn’t able to get. This year the Early Access goes live at 12:30 EST.
HOW DO I GET EARLY ACCESS?
If you aren’t already a Nordstrom cardholder, sign up by July 10th to get early access to the sale 7 days before it opens to the public. If you apply before the 10th, you’ll get a $60 note to use for the sale. There are a handful of other benefits to the Nordstrom Card— the alterations credit is one of my fave benefits!
BEST WAY TO SHOP THE SALE
- Check out the Anniversary Sale Catalog here to see what catches your eye — this way you’re prepared on the first day you can shop. The catalog won’t be shoppable until the sale starts. Remember not everything is in the catalog, there will be a ton of other great items on sale. My posts from last years sale here and here are great resources too.
- Be prepared to make your purchases as soon as the sale is available to you. Most every year popular items sell out before the sale goes to the public and they don’t always restock. A couple of the brands that tend to sell out are BP., Leith, and Topshop. Cardigans, dresses, sweaters, long sleeve tops, jeans and boots are popular and tend to sell out as well.
- I purchase things online and then head into the store as soon as it opens. Now I realize that not everyone has the time or ability to do this! At the end of the day it is just a sale!
I live on the west coast, and in the past when I’ve gone into the store (right as it opens) popular items have been pulled for customers on the east coast (obviously their stores open before west coast stores) leaving no inventory in my store. If this happens to you, or an item just happens to be sold out ask a sales associate to check if the item is available at another location, they can see inventory in their system. Last year I had multiple items shipped to me from other Nordstrom stores.
If you see something online and you think you might like grab it! It also doesn’t hurt to get a couple sizes just incase! You can always return what you don’t want, doesn’t fit, etc. Nordstrom has an amazing return policy.
If there is an item you just couldn’t get your hands on you have a couple options! Make friends with a sales associate! They’ll keep an eye out for that specific item and they will call you when it’s in! Second- keep checking the website. People will make returns therefore inventory online will fluctuate. If items are actually restocked (not just returned) I will be sharing on my Instagram stories.
Curbside pickup is awesome for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Shop online and choose curbside pickup— you beat the crowds, and are able to get your new purchases on the same day!
