Caitlin Carol - Nordstrom Anniversary - What You Need to Know 2

WHAT IS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE AND WHAT MAKES IT SO SPECIAL?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is essentially the biggest sale of the year. The #Nsale, as it’s know on social media, is when Nordstrom releases BRAND NEW, fully stocked fall and winter merchandise at deeply discounted prices. The sale isn’t old fall merchandise that they’re just trying to get rid on…it features must have HOT items like AG jeans, Tory Burch riding boots, Stuart Weitzman Over the Knee Boots, and many other popular, must have items! It’s the perfect sale to stock up on your favorite Fall and Winter essentials for a fraction of the price!

WHEN IS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE?

The sale opens to the public July 21st and ends August 6th, prices go back up on August 7th.

Nordstrom card holders can receive early access to the sale starting July 13th!

WHAT IS EARLY ACCESS?

Early Access offers Nordstrom cardholders exclusive access to the sale July 13th – 20th, before the sale opens to the public on July 21st. This is a great way to snag all your favorite, must have items before they sell out! Some items are restocked throughout the sale, but it is not guaranteed. Having early access allows you to shop the hottest items as soon as possible!

HOW CAN I RECEIVE EARLY ACCESS TO THE SALE?

Nordstrom debit and credit cardholders automatically receive early access to the sale. If you aren’t a cardholder, you can get approved by July 9th in time for Early Access. Also, as a perk, you’ll receive a $20 Nordstrom Note when you sign up!

WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO SIGN UP FOR A NORDSTROM CARD?

You can shop the sale when it opens to the public on July 21st.

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO SHOP?

I prefer to shop online since the sale is popular and the stores can be very busy. Also, the Nordstrom website has the best selection of the sale inventory in all of the available sizes. A Nordstrom store location may or may not have what you’re looking for depending on the inventory they’re carrying. I think it’s a much safer bet to shop online since everything included in the sale will be there. In addition to free shipping and free returns (insert praise hands emoji here), Nordstrom also offers in-store or curb-side pick up!

WHICH ITEMS USUALLY TEND TO SELL OUT THE FASTEST?

High-end Denim, Tory Burch Riding Boots, Designer purses, Kendra Scott Jewelry, booties, cardigans and blanket scarves. 

HOW DO I ACCESS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE MAGAZINE?

One last tip I have for you all is to make sure you have a strategy! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale can be overwhelming and can have you thinking, ‘Where do I even start?!’. To avoid feeling lost in the chaos, I would first recommend going through your fall and winter wardrobe to see what key items you are missing. Make a list of these staple items and be sure to purchase these items first before they sell out!

Make sure you follow along during the sale! I’ll be sharing plenty of sale round-ups, purchase reviews and more! Also, if you have any questions about the sale that were not covered in this post, please let me know! I’m happy to answer any questions you may have! xoxo
