Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Today, I wanted to share some details with you about this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  There have been a lot of changes compared to previous years, so I figured I’d fill y’all in.  So, let’s get right to it!

What exactly is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and why on earth should I care about it?

Ha! If you’ve ever shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, then y’all know why it is da bomb! If you have never shopped it before, here is what ya need to know. It’s Nordstrom’s biggest sale of the year where they release all awesome fall items at a ridiculously discounted price. I’m not talking just any old items, I’m talking DESIGNER!! Think Sam Edelman, Tory Burch, Free People, Michele Watches, Kendra Scott Jewelry and the list goes on! You can scoop up some awesome deals, so it’s definitely worth a look. This sale is unlike others because it works in reverse. Most of the time during a sale, the item starts at a higher price and then is discounted price. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (also known as #NSale on social media) works the other way around. The items start off at a discounted price and then go back up to full price once the sale ends. It’s the best time of the year to get fall/winter items to buy now/wear later because you probably won’t see them that cheap again for the rest of the year. 

When can I shop?

This year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has an Early Access Sale for all Nordstrom cardholders starting on August 13th. For this part of the sale, only Nordstrom debit or credit cardholders can shop. This is extremely important because items tend to sell out quickly and if you have early access, you get to shop right away and your size is guaranteed to be available. If you want to shop Early Access, then I suggest signing up for a Nordstrom debit or credit card here (also known as the “Nordy Club”). See the graphic below regarding status. If you already have a Nordstrom card, then you get to shop early! Yay! How early you get to shop depends on your Nordy Club Status. If you do not have a Nordstrom Card, don’t worry! The sale will be open to the public from August 19-30. Prices go back up after that! 

What has changed about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

The first difference is that the Early Access credit and debit card holders will work on the tiered system that I referenced above. The other and BEST change is that EVERYONE is able to preview the sale and it just started on July 24th! This is so awesome because it gives you a chance to narrow down the items you really want to go for! 

What items should I buy?

I suggest you make a list of items that YOU are really interested in…do you need denim, athleticwear, beauty, or do you want to score a dream designer piece? My other words of wisdom are not to wait, just buy it!! Get the items in your cart and pull the trigger. Nordstrom has the best shipping and return policy, it’s all FREE! So don’t wait, just buy, buy, buy! I know for me personally, I like to look for one or two key designer pieces and also stock up on classic things, like booties, leggings, and denim. I have scored some great deals on SPANX in the past and they are included this year too! Yay!!
