It’s the most wonderful time of the yeaaarrrrrrrrr!!
This is the song I will happily be singing to myself the glorious dates of July 13-Aug 6th! And no. NEVER will I get sick of that tune during those few weeks, because it is in fact the most wonderful time of the year. Anyone who tells you otherwise is just putting out negative energy and you don’t need that sh*t.
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
It is the one time a year that Nordstrom heavily discounts NEW ITEMS for fall/winter. Why do they do this? Because they are a bunch of angels.
July 13th-20th is Early Access Sale. Meaning that if you have a Nordstrom debit or credit card, you are able to shop the sale early.
July 21-Aug6th Public Access Everybody can shop! Don’t matter your form of payment.
What should I grab from the sale?
I personally get in the zone. Think about it. As soon as Aug 6th hits, everything will jump up to regular price for the rest of forever. I try to get ahead of the game and grab Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, home items, I even buy shoes in the next size up for my kids. Basically this is your chance to save mulua-dont let it pass!
-Items sell out FAST. I am not just saying that. I am raising my right hand and typing with my left, and swearing on that fact.
-If you see something you like, buy it right then! If you get it and you don’t end up liking it, or it just isn’t for you etc, no biggie. Nordstrom is the best at returns, and will take it hassle free.
-Shop online. I try my best to avoid the store at all costs. It is a mad house. Think-Costco the day before Thanksgiving type of busy. Plus online you can actually see all the items, and not be limited to what is or isn’t already sold out in whichever location you would be shopping at.
-Don’t leave your online shopping cart full. I made the mistake of this one year and I STILL get PTSD night sweats about it. Items in your cart will expire and sell out. So even if you plan on shopping the Nsale more than once, make sure each time you are online, you check out and buy instead of leaving your cart full. Plus shipping is always FREE no minimum amount required!
Sign up for my email newsletter. For reals. This sale is my third and favorite child. I will be on my computer at midnight when the sale goes live. I will be searching through thousands of items and making sure YOU know the best deals, need to haves, and my most favorites. I will be sending out an email when the sale goes live, what the best items are, and items that are selling out fast so you don’t miss out! I also will be doing roundups for best buys under $100 & $50!
This year I am so lucky to be partnering up with some brands that are a part of the Nsale! I will be able to show you on IG stories, and on my posts about these items before anyone else gets them!
Do your homework people (this is probably the one and only time I will advise this)! Study the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog (click and scroll down to view it).
Breathe. Remember to breathe, and to shower this year during the sale…this last tip is mainly for me.
