Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early access

One of the best sales of the year (and absolutely my favorite) starts next week. So it seems like a good time to explain how to shop this blog and how to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Having a strategy will go a long way and help you maximize your dollars!

First things first, let me explain the site and how to shop here. is a lifestyle blog that includes FASHION, LIFESTYLE, BEAUTY and TRAVEL as vertices (topics). The blog is actually a website that hosts all the blog posts I write. Typically, I publish a new blog post Monday through Friday and leave you alone on the weekend. So that’s about five new posts a week. All posts stay on this site and never get deleted. So if you ever want to refer back to something I wrote a long time ago, just put the subject matter in the SEARCH bar (right column under MEET TANYA).

Every day, I write about something that I want to share. Typically its something I discovered, thought you would like to know about, a reader asked me to research or I just like it. Nine times out of ten, I provide shopable links which allow you to click on the highlighted link and go directly to the site where the item is available. I do get a small commission if you purchase through my links just like the sales person gets a commission at the retail store. Additionally, if you click a link I provide and it leads you to the item I am talking about but you start shopping around the retail site, I will also get credit. Regardless of what you purchase I will get credit. THANK YOU to everyone who shops with me.

Another way to shop with me is to simply start on and click one of the store names listed in the right column under WHERE I SHOP. If you click any of those links it will take you directly to that retailer and you can shop anything you like. They are always there and I update them often. If there is a store you would like for me to add to the list just let me know. Anytime you shop with me through my links, I will get credit.

Why shop with me? You are getting free advice, direct links to what I am talking about and sales alerts. It DOES NOT cost you any more to start your online shopping with me vs. the retail site. By the way, I DO NOT know who is shopping with me. I just know what items are selling. Your name is not associated with the sale. Otherwise I would reach out and personally thank you. THANK YOU!

Now…let me explain the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (NSale).

The NSale happens every July and it features new fall merchandise at a discount for a short period of time. Early access starts July 14th and it’s so important because pieces sell out so quickly. In order to shop early access you must be a Nordstrom card holder. If you hurry, you can probably get one in time. Click here to get started. I have one and it absolutely helps to have one for this sale. And if its summer stuff you are craving, go ahead and shop that NOW. Summer items are up to 40-60% OFF. I have linked you to several choices below or just click here to get started now.

How to shop the NSale and maximize your strategy during the entire sale

  • 1. Make a list now and check it twice. Think about what you need this fall/winter. Here is what I need:
  • A new pair of boots
  • Fall Handbag
  • Cashmere
  • Coat
  • Holiday dress, Fall event and luncheon dresses
  • Denim (I need to update my denim look)
  • 2. Within your list, make a sublist of things others will need. Husband, kids, gifts, stuff for you home, family members
  • New shoes for Pete
  • Tumi luggage
  • Clothes and shoes for Taylor and P.J.
  • Gifts for the family for the holidays
  • Birthday gifts for fall birthdays
  • Back to school clothes for all the kids in your family (remember fall clothes are on SALE!)
  • 3.Clean Out Your Closet
  • Find out what items fit and don’t fit. Get rid of anything that doesn’t fit
  • Get rid of anything that is not being worn (it will not be worn and its taking up space)
  • Inventory what is missing once you have cleaned out your closet. Add it to your list (#1 above)
