“Rona” may have put a halt on our summer vacations, school year celebrations and birthday parties, but it couldn’t take down the most anticipated sale of the year…the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
This year there are some big changes that I’m going to fill you in on, but for now expect that stores will still be open and that there will be safety precautions in place. While they haven’t shared any specifics yet I look forward to seeing if fitting rooms will be open and how they handle the crowds. I have a feeling most of us will be shopping online anyway which is the BEST way to shop this sale!
Below are the shopping dates for Cardmembers (who get Early Access) and when the public sale starts. I’m an Insider Cardmember, so I’ll shop on August 13. You can view your Nordy Club status by logging into your Nordstrom account!
What To Expect
This year is a little different than last year for two big reasons. First, the sale is starting later this year which I actually like! It gives people more time to plan and start buying things for fall. The second big change this year is who gets to shop first. In years past the “influencer” and “insider” Cardmembers shopped on the same day. This year, Influencer cardmembers get to shop a whopping three days earlier than Insiders. That might not seem like a big jump, but if you’ve ever shopped this sale before you know how quickly items sell out!
The best change that happened this year is that Nordstrom has released the ENTIRE sale online early! Yes, for the first time you can preview all of the items on sale weeks before you add them to your cart. Use the “add to wishlist” feature to save your favorites so you can checkout fast when it comes time to shop! (My wishlist is linked below so you can have a sneak-peek of my favorite items!)
My favorite things to shop for during the Nordstrom Sale are cardigans, boots, layering pieces (basic tops) and accessories! This year I’m also looking forward to covering the Home section since so many of you voted for it on my Instagram Stories. If there are any other categories you’d like me to cover this year, let me know in the comments section below!
This is my wishlist so far! Click on the links below to add items to your wishlist for faster checkout once the sale goes live! This is a great feature both Matt and I are using to shop the sale. (You can make multiple wish lists – genius!)
What are you most excited to shop for this year? For me it’s always shoes! I can’t wait to share all of my finds with you. Make sure to bookmark the “Nordstrom Anniversary Sale” tab on my blog to catch up on updates throughout the sale!
