What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

This shopping event is when brands collaborate with Nordstrom and release brand new fall merchandise at an exclusive discounted price. Everything from denim, sweaters, boots, jewelry and bags to home and beauty items as well. Most sales we are used to include current or previous collections that are marked down but this sale is a lot different! It’s ALL new arrival and newly released merchandise!

When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

This sale will take place in August this year and here’s a breakdown of shopping access dates:

Insider Early Access: Thursday, August 13th – Tuesday, August 18th

Open Access for Everyone: Wednesday, August 19th – Sunday, August 30th

How do I shop the Nordstrom Sale?

Everyone can shop this sale starting August 19th when the sale opens to the public. To shop the sale early on August 13th, you will need a Nordstrom Card. I personally don’t have any retailer cards except for Nordstrom and I have been a card holder for a few years and there are a few reasons why. I like to collect the points, which I earn for every purchase I make. The points translate to Nordstrom “Notes”, which is basically free money to spend. I also use the perks of free alterations, access to events, etc (depending on your status). So for me, the card was worth it. I NEVER encourage someone to open a credit card to go into debt over shopping a sale! That is NOT the idea here! Nothing is THAT good, so it’s a 100% fine to wait until the 19th if you want to shop this sale!

Most Coveted Sale Items

I have gotten some great deals during the sale. Some of my favorite deals (and always the first to sell out) are my Spanx faux leather leggings, Barefoot Dreams blankets and cardigans, my all time favorite bras are often included, designer denim, and athletic wear. It’s also a time that I will grab some fall cardigans and shoes and do some back to school shopping for the kids. There’s always a pretty great selection and I’m excited to see what this year will look like! Linking some of the most coveted sale items below for you to browse!
