It’s that time of year again! Time to prepare for the Nordstrom Anniversary SALE. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is like the Super Bowl SALE and you don’t want to miss it. Have you ever wondered what all the hoopla is about? Think of today’s blog post like a crash course called ‘Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 101.’ I’m going to break it down and tell you WHY you want to have a game plan to tackle this sale. I will include important dates as well as key strategies to optimize your savings experience. Also, the pieces I’m wearing in this post are sold out, but I linked a ton of options in the boutique down below!
I’ve been shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for more years than I can remember. Certainly many more years than I have been blogging. I remember thinking “What a brilliant idea! Put the upcoming fall merchandise on SALE in July.” In a nutshell, that’s what it is. And if you have been with me during my entire blogger journey (8+ years), you know that I will focus on this sale extensively throughout its entire run from July 11- August 6. That’s because the SALE has a life of its own. It has peaks and valleys, so to speak. Things sell out quickly, but some merchandise will restock. There are literally thousands of items and hundreds of brands included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Think of me as your stylist and personal #NSale navigator.

NEEDS & SHOPPING STRATEGY:
I highly encourage you to make your Wish Lists now. That way when the sale opens, you have a priority list. I also make an effort to snag investment pieces that I’ve had my eye on. Need the designer sunglasses? Get them on SALE! My list always looks something like this:
New denim trends, luggage, fall booties and tall boots, clothes for Pete and the kids and grandkids, home decor items, beauty items (restock make-up, load up on beauty blenders and hair care products), Gucci sunglasses, Burberry jacket, pajamas… Gift ideas for fall celebrations. You get the picture. Then, I will look through the preview to see what will be on sale from my list. It’s like solving a puzzle.
Check out these blog posts from past Nordstrom Anniversary Sales. You will get a feel for how I covered it and what you can expect in the upcoming weeks. It averages about 2 blog posts per week over the 4 week sale period. Also, I will have a NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE drop-down menu above so that you can easily find what you’re looking for. If you ever want me to look for something specific, please just let me know. You can always leave a comment in the comments section of the blog post or e-mail me by clicking here.
