Get your wallets ready, because it’s almost time to shop the anniversary sale at Nordstrom! If you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, then you’ve already had early access to the sale for the past week. As for everyone else, the sale opens this Friday and runs through August 6.
Even if you can’t purchase anything just yet, you’re still welcome to browse Nordstrom’s site and get your shopping lists ready before Friday!
What’s so great about Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale?
It’s not your ordinary sale.
Typically, stores will mark down items at the end of a season in an effort to push out the products that didn’t sell during peak season while they make room for new inventory. Because of this, sale items are “out of season” pieces and things that have been on the shelves for a while.
What makes Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale amazing is that it’s made up of brand new pieces. Nordstrom puts the new arrivals on sale for a brief period of time, and then everything goes back up to the regular price as we approach the upcoming season. This is the time to take advantage and grab the new items for the upcoming season.
To help with your shopping needs, I’ve put together a few “must-have” lists based on what you’re shopping for:
- Wardrobe Staples
- Fall Style Picks
- My Personal Wishlist
Curating the Wardrobe Staples
Not much of a trendy person? That’s totally fine. The safest, most versatile way to shop a sale is to take stock of your current wardrobe and fill in the gaps. Grab all the closet staples while they’re discounted and complete the collection of essentials: Think leather jackets, little black dresses, dark wash denim, anything timeless.

Targeting Fall Style Must-Haves
You’ll notice from my personal wish list of items that this is the approach I am taking this year. We all love fall fashion, but isn’t it even better when the fall items are available at a discount before the season arrives? Even as new trends are introduced, there are still a few classic fall items to count on: boots, plaid, and leopard print. Below are a few of my fall picks:
Shopping My Personal Picks
Last but certainly not least, use my wish list as a source of inspiration! If we share a similar taste when it comes to style, check out the items I’m eyeing for the sale. I have a mix of trendy pieces, workwear, and fall items to make up my list. What will I end up getting? We’ll see! Once everything I order arrives, I’ll be sure to share it with you all either through social media or a video!
