Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Details
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
First off, what is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?! Every year Nordstrom holds an annual sale on new Fall arrivals featuring some of the best brands they carry. They hand select a variety of items for men, women, children and home. These are also pre-sale items, meaning they’re Fall products with reduced prices for the duration of the sale. Once the sale ends everything goes back to regular price.
Often times things sell out before they even go back to full price! It’s the best time to stock up on some new staple items you may need, start your Christmas/holiday shopping, or even splurge a bit on something you have been wanting for a while! I always get the Barefoot Dreams blankets I love, because full price is almost $200 and that’s very expensive for a blanket.
I typically try to stock up on staple items, like leather jackets and shoes. I will be sharing my top picks, so don’t expect me to share a TON of items, more-so quality finds. So I think it’s important to pick and choose, versus spamming you with the entire sale! I am so excited to preview everything and start picking out things I think you guys will love.
In previous years, I’ve learned that TONS of items come back year over year. These items include the Barefoot Dreams Blanket, Spanx Faux Leather Leggings, Blank NYC Suede Jacket, etc. Honestly, I own all of these items from years past, so it makes sense to invest in them while they’re on sale. I don’t re-buy them. They’re staple items that I can keep and wear year-over-year! Again, you don’t need everything, but if you are shopping, be smart about what you buy. I’m here to help with that!

Tips for Shopping the NSale
1. Set A Budget!
Pick a budget/ allowance and stick to it. It is also really easy to get carried away with new items and deals. So sticking to your number is important. We all love a good sale, but don’t break the bank! I promise you debt is NOT worth buying a new pair of jeans or shoes.
DISCLAIMER: As a blogger, I make a small commission when you shop my links. But I would not be able to sleep at night knowing any one of you went into debt over the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I love you guys, and your support means everything to me, but my promise to you is to always steer you in the right direction! Be smart. Set a budget. Don’t overspend!!
2. Pick Brands/Categories
Before the sale starts, decide what you want to shop for. Be sure to follow me HERE on the LTK app, so you can see some of my most recommended items that are worth investing in. It can get a bit overwhelming, so try to come up with some items that you need and stick to that. Do you also need new jeans for fall? Booties? Beauty/Make-Up? Check out the items, make sure these are products you like and would use, and add them to your list!
3. Nordstrom Card
The Nordstrom Credit Card is a “key to access”, the sale is essentially “released” to their card members in a tiered order before the sale goes public. Check out the schedule above to see what I am talking about. Inventory goes fast, so the sooner you have access to the sale, the more likely you will get what you are looking for! So be sure to use a Personal Double Points Day to earn 2X the points on the day that you shop!
ANOTHER DISCLAIMER: If you are NOT good with credit cards, it’s not worth getting! I always make sure my balance is paid off by the end of the month. If you don’t have money to shop, don’t spend money you don’t have. I love you all and genuinely want you get things you can afford.
4. Sign Up For My Newsletter
This year I will be doing some newsletter exclusives!! Including top picks, exclusive giveaways, and more.
5. Download the LTK App + Preview Items
As mentioned above, the preview starts July 3rd. Download the LTK app on your phone and follow me HERE. You can save your favorite items to your Nordstrom Wish List so that when the sale starts, you have the items accessible. I HIGHLY recommend shopping on the desktop website, in previous years there have been issues last year with sales and shipping. Desktop has always been a simpler and more effective way of shopping for me.
So What’s Next?
You guys will be hearing from me soon with my picks for this year! Happy Shopping!!
