What you need to know about the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Graphic tees I'm loving here, here & here

Y'all we are quickly approaching one of my favorite times of the year...the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!  If you aren't already familiar with this sale, I am going to share why I love it so much, why you shouldn't miss it, and helpful tips to shopping the sale.  I look so forward to this sale every year that I actually take a day off work to shop.  Not even kidding!  And...keep reading because I am sharing a super easy way to enter to win a $50 Nordstrom gift card to shop the sale!

First, I'll share why I love it so much and why you shouldn't miss it.  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is unique because the items that are on sale are BRAND NEW and discounted only for a limited time.  After the sale is over, the items go back to regular price.  Also, the selection is amazing, particularly on line.  There is certainly a great selection in stores, but there is always a much larger selection on Nordstrom's website.  And as always with Nordstrom, shipping and returns are free so you can always send back anything that doesn't work.

Key dates and info:
  • July 11 - Sale items only available for Level 4 Nordstrom credit card holders.  That's me!  That means I will get to shop the sale even before Early Access!  I will be able to provide you with my top picks and fit reviews early so you will be ready to shop once the sale officially begins.  
  • July 12 - The "Early Access Sale" begins.  This is exclusively for Nordstrom credit card holders.  
  • If you don't already have a Nordstrom card, you can apply for one HERE. I'm not one to advocate having a bunch of credit cards, but this is one time that I think it is definitely worth it to have a retail store credit card.  
  • Many of the most popular items often sell out in the first few days of Early Access, which is why I encourage you to shop early with a Nordstrom card if possible.  
  • July 20 - The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (also called the NSALE) opens to the public.  Sometimes items that sold out during Early Access will be restocked on this day, but many items are not restocked.  
  • August 5 - Last day of the NSALE
You may be thinking...what's so different about this sale and what will I find there?  As I mentioned previously, this is all NEW merchandise to the store.   Many of the items (clothing, shoes, handbags) are for the fall season so you can get an early start on your fall shopping.  They also have new summer items to purchase that you can wear now.  There is always a great selection of workout gear that is released at the Anniversary Sale as well. Also, there are new home items and tons of beauty offers only available during the sale.  

To make the most of the sale, I recommend that you make a list of what you are really need before you start shopping.  It can be overwhelming looking through all the sale items if you don't know what you are looking for!  Also, sign up for the Nordstrom card if you don't already have one so you can shop early (starting July 12th)!  And if you aren't sure of sizing, order 2 sizes to make sure you get what you need as items tend to sell out fast. With Nordstrom's free shipping and return policy, you can always return what doesn't fit.  

I will provide regular updates throughout the sale, including my top picks, fit reviews and notifications of any restocks.  I will be posting on Instagram, Facebook and here on the blog.
