It’s *almost* the most wonderful time of the year! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is just around the corner! Preview is now open for everyone and it’s time to start loading up our wishlists.

What’s so exciting about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

If you are a Nordy Sale neophyte the short answer is new stuff is on SALE! And not just a little bit. We are talking upwards of 40% off brand new fall and winter styles. Prices go back up after the sale so there’s always a scramble to snag the best deals and stuff sells out FAST! Besides clothing and shoes there are awesome deals on beauty items and I always end up picking up some sets.

Key Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dates

  • July 11: Icon Status Cardholders
  • July 12: Ambassador Status Cardholders
  • July 13: Influencer Status Cardholders
  • July 17: PUBLIC ACCESS -sale opens to everyone!

Tips for Scoring What You Want

  • Spend some time previewing and creating wish lists. You want to be organized and know what you want ahead of time. This is NOT a sale you want to try winging it! It can become overwhelming super fast.
  • Check back for restocks. If something sells out there are usually restocks. I check FREQUENTLY and post when hot items come back in my Facebook Group so make sure to join and turn on notifications.
  • When in doubt order both sizes. If you aren’t sure what you will need order both. Returns are free and super easy but finding the size you need to exchange it for will not be. I’ve been burned a few times and was left kicking myself for not just ordering both.
  • Cardholders Get Earlier Access. There’s very few times I will advocate signing up for a credit card but this is the ONE exception. Early access is key. Depending on your spending level throughout the year you’ll get earlier access etc. You can also set your double points day to coincide with the sale and earn Nordstrom Notes faster.

My Top Nsale Picks By Category

I rounded up all of my favorite items from each category. To shop the collages scroll the products underneath and click on the item.

Favorite Tops

I love grabbing tops at the Nsale probably more than any other item! I always load up on the Caslon V-necks for casual tees and a few work type blouses. To shop scroll the widget under the collage or you can go to LTK: https://liketk.it/4e0ya 

Favorite Sweaters

Even though it’s in the upper 90s here if Florida I ALWAYS grab a few sweaters at the NSale. I usually get at least 1 Free People one and it’s the best time of year to grab Barefoot Dreams Cardigans. To shop scroll the widget under the collage or you can go to LTK: https://liketk.it/4e0zd 


Favorite Bottoms

NSale is always the best time to grab Spanx faux leather leggings. The Zella joggers are also a follower favorite. I usually grab a few pairs of Wit and Wisdom Jeans- they are made by Democracy and have the same amazing waist band. I also get at least one pair of Kut From the Kloth jeans most years.

Favorite Shoes

Shoes might be my favorite thing to get at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. This year there are a lot more ON sneakers which is great news because they were very popular. I also like to get updated boots for the fall/winter. My top wishlist item are these magenta Sam Edelman heels (Viva Magenta is the Pantone color of the year!) but they also come in neutral colors. The Birkenstock Big Buckle Madrid sandals are super trendy and I expect these to sell out. To shop scroll the widget under the collage or you can go to LTK: https://liketk.it/4e0wM

Favorite Beauty Items

I always score great beauty deals at the Anniversary Sale! They often have gift sets that are a good value and also large size items for a steal! To shop scroll the widget under the collage or you can go to LTK: https://liketk.it/4e0w8 

Favorite Gift Ideas

If you have been a long time follower you know I like to keep gifts on hand. One of my favorite places to score some nice gifts is the NSALE. The Nordstrom Bliss Throws are particularly popular and SO soft. The Barefoot Dreams socks make great teacher gifts. I also like to keep some high end candles on hand for gifting.

Outfit Ideas

I have a few of these Free People Ottoman tunic sweaters and just LOVE them! I do size down because they run big but they are perfect with Spanx Faux leather leggings. I’m thinking about grabbing a new color!


These Caslon tops are on my wishlist because they look super comfy! I also ALWAYS grab a few pairs of Wit and Wisdom Jeans because I love the ab-solution waist band (if you are a Democracy Jeans fan they are the same brand).
