How to Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary SALE

As we near the end of June it occurred to me that one of the biggest sales of the year happens in a few weeks. 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 August.” In a nutshell, that’s what it is. And if you have been with me during my entire blogger journey (6+ years), you know that I will focus on this sale extensively throughout the month of August. That’s because the SALE has a life of its own. It has peeks and valleys, so to speak. Things sell out quickly, but some merchandise will restock. Think of me as your stylist and personal #NSale navigator. Let’s start with a list of important dates:

NEW this year is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview on July 24. This gives you a sneak peek of some items that will be featured during the big sale. I plan on adding all of these items to my Wish List so that I can check out faster once it’s time to shop. There are literally thousands of items on the #NSale. I am here to help you navigate the sale.


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, if you 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 am here to help you!
