One of my favorite sales of all time is almost here! Who’s ready for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?! I look SO forward to this event every year and I can’t believe we are less than a week away already.

If you followed along last year, you know I’ll be all over this sale and finding all the goodies for you girls! Be sure you bookmark my Nsale page on my blog where I’ll link all my picks as well as in the LTK app! I’ll be sharing lots of try ons and reviews on Instagram stories too so be sure to stay tuned so you don’t miss anything! You can also join my private Facebook group where I’ll be sharing a bunch of info!

Now, here’s a run down of everything you need to know about this sale! I included some of the most frequently asked questions you all sent in too!

What exactly is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

If you’re not familiar with the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, it is so unique because during this event, you will find brand new merchandise being offered at a major discount (they are not last season’s clearance items). After the sale, everything goes back to FULL price. You can get huge discounts on brands we all love! When I say huge, you can expect to find markdowns anywhere from 20-60%. There will be great deals for the entire family – the sale includes goodies for women, men, kids, baby, home items, jewelry…. you name it!

When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

Now, let’s talk dates.

July 12th – July 18th (starting at 11:30 CST) if you are a Nordstrom card holder. Card holders get to shop the sale before anyone else. Icon card holders get to shop a few days before that also!

July 19th – August 4th The sale will open up to the public. Prices will go back to full price on August 5th.

Do you have to have a Nordstrom Card to shop the sale?

Let me start with saying, I’m definitely not here to tell everyone you need to open a Nordstrom credit card. My husband was so anti retailer cards, so I totally get the hesitance. I didn’t get one until 2017. If you want to open a card to shop the early access sale, you can do that here. If you sign up by July 10th, you can get a $60 bonus note to use at a later time!

To answer the question, you DO need the card to shop the sale during early access. After that, the sale will open to the public and you do not have to have a card to shop during that time. Inventory can be limited but there will definitely still be some great items available!

Do items sell out fast?

From my personal experience in shopping this sale, items often sell out during the early access part of the sale. Some items DO restock, but it’s pretty hit or miss. I will be checking for restocks daily, so I’ll have you covered as soon as some of the top items come back! It’ll be important to stay tuned on my IG stories for that!

What do I have my eye on this year?

For me, this sale is a great time to snag some designer goodies at a major markdown. This year I want to snag another barefoot dreams cardigan because that is my favorite purchase to date from this sale. I’ve snagged three so far and could basically live in them! I will also look for a good pair of designer denim, some booties, some basics (of course), and maybe a good fall jacket! My favorite bras by Natori will also be included so I will definitely get a couple, and I ALWAYS grab a few beauty items because the items are so good, and I like to shop for back to school for the kids. This year I’ll also share round ups for men, kids, and home! I plan to shop smarter this year, so I will definitely share the exact items I am buying for myself and the family! I’m planning on shopping quality, not quantity 🙂

What brands are normally included in the sale?

SO many brands are included in the sale. You will see everything from AG and Frame designer jeans, Barefoot Dreams, and several higher price point items all the way to our everyday basics from Gibson, Leith, BP, Socialite, etc. You can also except to see brands like Charlotte Tillbury, Tom Ford, Living Proof, Mac Cosmetics, and so many more offering great beauty bundles! The discounts offered on these brands are SO good so I will be sharing a variety of options at different price points.

Do I get credit if you buy something I share?

First off, I am so grateful for those of you who shop through my links. As you probably know, a lot of time and effort goes into these try ons and sale round ups and I do it because I LOVE IT. With that being said, It is always very much appreciated when you shop online through my links (blog, LTK, or if you click on a swipe up on stories and check out from there). I do get credit if you order online and pick up in store as well. I get a small commission from your purchase and it’s how I’m able to keep this blog running. Unfortunately, I do not get credit if you shop using the Nordstrom App. So, thank you thank you for considering that when shopping this sale! If you’re shopping from multiple bloggers recommendations, just know that the last person’s link you click on gets the credit for the sale. You girls are always SO SO thoughtful about shopping through me and I greatly appreciate that!!!

I’m super excited that I get to preview the sale super early this year, and I will be giving you ALL the info the moment the sale starts!! I want to make your life easier when shopping so you don’t have to dig for all the best items – I will do that for you!
