Ya’ll. The sale of all sales is almost here. The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is the biggest and best fashion sale of the year and one I look forward to every Summer! Ya’ll I plan for this. We’re talking budget, pen and paper list, strategy set, paper chain link countdown (ok..maybe not that extreme, but you get the point) .. this sale is serious business! I am so excited for today’s post, as I’ll be sharing all info and details of the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
What’s the hype, you ask?
Every year Nordstrom releases their newest Fall items and marks them down for a limited time. I am not talking the older items that have been on site, I mean brand NEW items for Fall.
More so, the brands Nordstrom carry can be on the high end, and for a gal on budget, I unfortunately don’t shop as consistently here as I do other retailers. I am a big sale shopper, so when I can find AG jeans, PAIGE denim, Hunter Boots, UGGs, Barefoot Dreams, Charlotte Tilbury, etc at discounted prices I’m much more eager to purchase. And with discounts on more affordable Nordstrom brands – Socialite, Caslon, Leith, Articles of Society, BP, to name a few – the sale’s in the bag (quite literally). This sale is THE sale of all sales because it discounts every department, releases BRAND NEW pieces and gives many the opportunity to shop premium brands up to 70% off. It’s one-of-a-kind awesome, right?! Let me share a bit more about it and answer some frequent questions below!
WHEN IS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE 2019?
July 12th, 2019: Early Access to the sale is available to all Nordstrom cardholders ONLY! Being a cardmember definitely has its perks – granted early access convinces my vote! You also get Nordstrom Reward Notes to shop with after building up your points (2 or 3 points per $1 spent – receive a $20 Note every 1,000 points to spend on anything!) Be sure to apply HERE by July 7th to have early access.
July 19th, 2019: The Anniversary sale is open to everyone!
August 5th, 2019: The sale has ended and items return to their normal retail price.
HOW DO I SHOP THE SALE?
While shopping in-store is a considerable option, it can be hectic and messy to maneuver thru. Y’all know online shopping is my preferred method, and I highly recommend it in this case. Nordstrom offers free shipping, and if you must have your pretties that day, you can purchase online and choose ‘in store pick up’, if available at your store.
I’ll note – many loyal shoppers await this sale each year. It’s very popular, and items WILL go quickly. Last year popular items went out like hotcakes. If you like an item, buy it. If you are unsure of sizing – purchase both sizes, just in case they sell out.
BEST SHOPPING TIPS?
The sale can be an overwhelming, but going in with strategy can ease the experience. First make a list of all you are shopping for. This sale provides outstanding savings on the most exciting new Fall merchandise, along with plenty of items for Summer. Tho still in July’s heat, this sale reels in shoppers with a Fall fashion urgency. Narrow down all the essentials you’d like for Fall : boots, hats, coats, & denim. Prioritize them and shop those first. From experience, cardigans and boots hop off the shelves the quickest. Remember, prices go back up August 5th, so shop early for best selection.
The Anniversary early access catalog was just released yesterday, you can view it here. (or click the image above). Please note, the items shown are just a fraction of what will be offered – hundreds more will be releasing! It’s a good idea to take a look tho and save the item numbers of your favorites. Having the numbers on hand will make it easier to reference once the sale goes live. Stay tuned for a post on all my catalog favorites!
WHAT WILL YOU BE COVERING?
I love a good bargain, but I am also the type of person who is willing to spend a bit more on pieces I know will last. I’ll invest in pieces that are versatile and transition well from one season to the next. This sale is one of the few that I shop, knowing the discounts offered will save me 100s on items doubled in value.
In preparation for this sale, I asked in Instagram stories what items you’re willing to pay a bit more on and what items you are shopping for. With this sale as big as it is, I plan on covering items specific to your shop. Per responses, I’ll be covering shoes, outerwear, denim, accessories, and some home essential favorites!
You’ll see ALOT of featured sale content here on the blog and other social channels! With links to all, I’ll be sharing top picks, personal buys and inventory updates over the course of the entire sale! You’ll be able to access all #nsale posts by going to my blog’s navigation menu and clicking on the “Nordstrom Anniversary Sale” tab. Tho item widgets are no longer available, feel free to browse some of last years blog posts here, here, here, here and here to get a feel for my Nordstrom Sale way of run!
With the sale less than 2 weeks away there’s much anticipation and excitement! Even in the blogging world, the pressure to share is extremely high. I’ll do my best to source an easy (and fun) Nordstrom Anniversary sale experience! If you ever have any questions or need help with pieces you’re looking for, I am always happy to help!
