Today is the day! It’s the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale PREVIEW DAY. 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 from last year, 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 6-31. 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 haircare 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 25 day sale period. Also, I 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.

I love that sale so much! I always get a pair of boots and a jacket. It is like Christmas!
I don’t need to see it on you… it seems like extra work
Also are there the same items in store as online and how do you get your hands on a hard copy!!
I like seeing bloggers favorite items whether they try them on or not:)
I don’t need to see it on you and I think that would be too much work for you. If I see the pics and the descriptions, that’s enough for me.
I like seeing the clothes on and how you style them!
I agree with above comments no need to model I’d rather see more items. My list is fashion sneakers booties and an investment bag thanks for tip on opening an account but not required to use the Nordstrom card. I’m one of those who likes all our charges on one card.
Gorgeous dress! Looking forward to the sale and finding some great deals.
I agree with the other comments. It’s too much work for you to try on everything. I can’t believe a whole year has gone by and it’s Norstrom time again. I need to find a good coat this year and I usually stock up on the basics that I know I’ll be buying anyway – like nice jeans, etc. Also, I always need shoes and boots (doesn’t every girl)? Your dress is beautiful.
Mmm…the floral dress looks pretty sweet! Great choice for summer days.

I actually liked seeing the clothing on you a lot!!! It helped me decide yes or no! A lot of clothes look very different on a person. So my vote is if you are able to model/ style the items, yes! I followed you extensively last year, in fact, the most and I follow 3 thousand something on Instagram. I purchased most of my items because of your blog and photos you posted, so thank you, Tanya!!
I like seeing you try on the clothes because it gives me a clearer picture of the fit and how you style them.
It really helps to see all the items on you as it gives me a better idea of it really looks.
No need to try on the items. I always buy a few items at the sale -but if you notice something outstanding – let us know. Thanks.
Hey Tanya, I just found you through a friend and I am so tickled! I am looking for a Lafayette suit or two during the big sale! If you have any pointers, I would love to hear them. Something classic, tailored, but a little funky! I do a lot of TV work and a great suit is a wonderful investment! In fact I hear that you and I are with the same talent agency… Campbell. I hope to see you around the agency sometime!
I love seeing your picks/purchases on you. It’s helpful to see them early before they sell out! I have bought many things through you that I wouldn’t have noticed because of the way they look on you vs the online models. Love the Vince flats and long cashmere cardigan from last year! Thanks so much!
Favorite sale of the year! I always stock up on my favorite beauty and new trends. Can’t wait!
Yay! I love the N Sale!
Love this sale and always enjoy your informational posts on deals, etc.
