GUYS! It’s here! Women across the country set their alarms to wake up early and get early access to the best Sale of the year. If you’re unfamiliar with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, every summer Nordstrom selects a handful of their best new products for Fall and marks down the price for three weeks and three weeks only. That’s right-after August 5th, all these items will return to full price or sell out. It’s the only time brand new items are dramatically marked down for the new season, and it goes FAST. Early access (for Nordstrom card holders only) starts TODAY! And the public event begins July 20th. You’re in the right place, friends.
First of all, there is a method to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale madness. 1. Get the Nordstrom Card to get first pick during the sale, but also for all the benefits that go along with it! Nordstrom is hands down the store I would pick at if I could only choose one place to shop at for the rest of my life. The majority of my purchases for my family and friends in everything from skincare and makeup to my kids shoes and strollers. Their customer service, price matching and return policy are unbeatable! On top of that, you earn 2 points per dollar spent in stores and online, plus you get a $40 bonus Note when you make any purchase on the new card the day you’re approved. SO good!
Now, I know how fast things go across the board and have fallen prey one too many times to the dreaded “Sold Out” tag on something i’ve been eyeing up. I won’t be able to shop in store this year, so I always order whatever I’m actually considering knowing I’d rather return something (which Nordstrom makes so simple) than watch it sell out. I always warn O I’m not actually keeping every single thing because it can look like quiiiite a lot of boxes on delivery day. Trust me though, it’s the right way to go!
I tend not to get too fancy during the Sale and instead invest in things I know I’ll wear for years to come. My favorite categories to shop are, hands down, sweaters, shoes and denim. I always invest in a great pair of denim during the sale and it feels like I’m cheating somehow. Of course I take full advantage of the Mens and Kids sales too, but those posts will come later!
Without further adieu, here is the start of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 favorites!
