Alright, guys! It’s here! The biggest and most anticipated Sale of the YEAR! The Nordstrom Aniversary Sale! If you’re not familiar with the N Sale… first off… where have you been?!? And 2nd… Don’t worry boo. I got YOU!
OK. First things first. What is it? And why do you want to jump on it quickly?
The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is a sale that happens once a year, in mid-summer, where Nordstrom marks down 1000’s of items to get us all prepped and ready for… yep, you guessed it…Fall! Think of it as an end of summer shopping spree where you can get a head start on your Fall wardrobe at seriously discounted prices! I know right!!
Each summer, Nordstrom releases a killer sale preview with so many amazing items including women’s Fall fashion, activewear, kids back to school, Men’s, jewelry, shoes, accessories, beauty and so much more! The sale is structured by giving cardmembers early access and then releasing access to the public at later dates!
HERE’S A LIST OF IMPORTANT DATES YOU’RE GONNA WANNA REMEMBER IF YOU WANT TO MAKE THE MOST OF THIS SALE!
Icon Early Access: August 4th
Ambassador Early Access: August 7th
Insider Early Access: August 13th
Open to Everyone: August 19th
Prices Increase: August 30th
So here’s the deal! If you’ve been eyeing a leather moto jacket or a great pair of Fall boots but haven’t wanted to spring for the price tag that can come with a name brand or designer items..well sister..now’s the perfect time to snag them! The prices are seriously so good and this sale is the only time I see some of my favorite brands discounted this deeply!
Here are a few tips to keep this sale fun and not so overwhelming!
- Browse the preview first and make a list of the things you want to snag! A list and a plan are key so you don’t get overwhelmed with all the items!
- If you don’t already have the Nordstrom Card – Maybe consider grabbing it for early access! I’m telling you if you LOVE it, other people will too and it will sell out! Also. The Cardmember perks are pretty amazing! If you shop at Nordstrom regularly it’s a must-have!
- The best way to shop the sale, in my opinion, is online! Who doesn’t like shopping at home in their jammies! #Amiright?? Once the sale is live you can shop online here. Also. ProTip: Checkout more than once if you’re buying a lot of items! Just letting things sit in your cart while you browse will result in sold out items! Not fun!
- This is probably the most important thing! Remeber that you don’t HAVE to buy anything. This sale can get a little crazy and have people buying things just because someone else did or because everyone else is. Beleive me, I’ve gotten caught up in the FOMO and spent money on things I didn’t really want or need…. All this to say that although I’m sharing a ton of items – not buying anything is A OK! 🙂
And that’s it! I hope you enjoy this sale as much as I do and I hope you find my picks helpful! Keep your eyes on my stories to see my try-on soon! I’ll also be sharing all my purchases and putting together outfits for ya throughout the week and weekend in my stories!
