The most anticipated day of the year has finally arrived! No, not Coachella. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Today, I am talking about why there is so much hype over this sale and why you should take advantage of it!
So why is there so much hype over the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
Unlike other sales that get marked down because we’re about to enter a new season and they are trying to get rid of last season items, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the opposite. We get to shop the upcoming season items for a discounted price before the price goes up in full price!
When can I start shopping?
If you are a cardholder, the early access to the sale starts TODAY, yay!! Early Access is from July 13-20. If you want to shop the pre-sale and don’t have a Nordstrom card, you can sign up here. It does take a couple days to process, so I recommend signing up pronto if you want to take advantage of the sale! However, if you do not have/nor wish to sign up for a Nordstrom card you can still totally take advantage of the amazing sale when it is opened to the public on Friday, July 21.
How should I take advantage of the sale?
To start with, there is no other sale out there like the NSale. The deals you find on brand-name items is seriously so great and can be marked down by a few hundreds of dollars. Like these Stuart Weitzman boots that were a major hit last year, they are back again this year and you can get them now during the sale and save almost $300 before they go back up in full price.
That being said, take advantage of this sale by shopping for the items that you may have been missing last fall/winter or to shop items that you think are looking a little worn and you want a new pair of. This can range from clothing items to accessories. Having this mental (or physical) list will help you really get the best of the sale and you won’t be so overwhelmed going into it.
This sale is also a fun little sneak preview of the trends and colors to expect for the upcoming season! Receiving the magazine in the mail every year is like Christmas in July for me. I get so excited to get a little snippet of what will be trending in fall, hah.
Also, one last thing! More like a side note when shopping the sale online.. Nordstrom has free shipping & return, so if you are unsure about sizing, order two sizes and send back the one that doesn’t fit. I do this all the time, especially with boots since my calves are “so muscular”..
Here’s a mini roundup of a few of my favorites from the sale:
