You guys! Did you know that one of my favorite times of the year is literally right around the corner. You heard me right. My favorite time of the year is literally going to be starting this week and I am beyond excited.
Have you guessed it yet?
If you haven’t, it is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. That’s right. And it is starting THIS WEEK!!!!
For those of you that might not know what I am talking about it, it is basically Christmas in July where one of my favorite retailers provides elite product, at ridiculous rates in anticipation for the coming season. Guys. I am so excited. If you are needing more info, I did a more thorough description with this blog post, here.
So, let’s get to the specifics.
When does it start? July 12 – 18 is early access meaning cardholders only. I will be shopping in-store earlier in the week, so stay tuned for that! July 19 -August 4, all of the sales open to the general public. If you don’t want to wait and want to shop the 12- 18, head here to apply for your card. You can also apply in-store.
How should you shop it? I definitely cover this in depth in last year’s post, but here is a little breakdown of my plan for this year – each year I always start with what is missing in my fall wardrobe. Do I need boots, jackets, sweaters?? Then I break it down to other areas. The sale doesn’t just cover clothes. You can get great deals on home items (Barefoot Dreams blankets anyone?), beauty packages, shoes, handbags, sunglasses, jewelry, workout clothes, etc. It is a super wide range, so don’t forget to think about all areas. Once you have a list of items you are looking for, I would then set yourself a budget. It is extremely easy to go over board during this sale because it is just that good, so set yourself up for success by saying exactly how much you will spend. I also recommend putting away a little bit for later too, because one thing I always catch myself doing is seeing stuff on Instagram that I didn’t see originally when I shopped or that someone styled super cute. This way, you can buy a few things if you find something after your original shop date.
What if I am not a cardholder? If you are not a cardholder, don’t stress. As I mentioned, the sale opens to the public on July 19 and they typically do restocks of popular items. I definitely recommend saving to your cart ahead of time and knowing exactly what you want so that then when it does become public you can make sure you get exactly what you are looking for.
How will you be sharing the #NSale? I plan on having a blog post up with all of my favorite Nordstrom picks the morning of July 12th, that way you can shop right away. I will also be sharing exclusive looks and try-ons in the Like to Know it app, so be sure you have it downloaded. Lastly, who knows, maybe I’ll do a little video of my try-on haul!
If you have any additional questions, please feel free to DM me directly on Instagram, or leave a comment below.
Here are some of my faves from years previous!
P.S. If you send me your July intentions on Tuesday 7/9/19, I will put you in the running for a gift card to Nordstrom!
