Everything You Need to Know: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

When to start shopping The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale:

This year the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is taking place from July 21st – August 6th.  However, Nordstrom card holders (debit or credit) get to have early access to the sale and can start their shopping July 13th. Early access is the way to go because so many top sellers, like designer jeans and cute fall booties, go fast. I’m a Nordstrom cardholder and I seriously can’t recommend it enough. The sale will open to the public on July 21st and prices will go back up on August 7th.

July 13th: Early Access begins for all Nordstrom cardholders

July 17th: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public

August 6th: Last day of the sale and prices go up on the 7th

Where can I shop the The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

You can shop both in store and online, I typically do my shopping online but this year I will probably be doing at least one Nordstrom run to try on a few things. The in-store pick up option is also amazing! Regardless of how you shop, I highly recommend making some sort of game plan before you start shopping. Look around your wardrobe, browse the catalog, and figure out exactly what it is you need to shop for. I share a little bit of my shopping list below and I’ll keep sharing my favorites throughout the sale.

How can I become a Nordstrom cardholder and get early access to the sale?

You can sign up to become a cardholder here. Becoming a cardholder is very easy and has tons of perks in addition to getting early access to the anniversary sale. You can get approved to be a cardholder by July 9th – just in time for early access! I’ve been a Nordstrom cardholder for years and I can’t rave about it enough.

How can I find out what’s going to be on sale?

Nordstrom recently released their catalog which gives you a preview of everything included in the sale. I recommend looking over the catalog now to try and plan out what’s on your shopping list. There is seriously SO much included in the sale, that if you wait until it starts to figure out what you want, it may be a little overwhelming

What I’m excited to shop for at the The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is when I love to load up on great staple pieces for the fall – boots and booties, quality denim, designer handbags, cardigans, etc. I’m even more excited to shop for cooler weather things since I live in Portland, OR and it rains 9 months of the year. I’m always looking for great jeans, so I’m hoping to add some great to my closet. I know I will need more boots and booties for this fall/winter and really good cardigans. Is it July 13th yet?!

See my post from last year for some inspo and what to expect here, here, & here.
