How to Prep for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

How to Prep for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Year after year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is always one of my favorites! Even on years where I don’t shop much. I love seeing whats coming for fall, and it gets me so excited for the season (although, summer feels like it’s just begun).

Before I get any further, I also realize that we’re living in a very weird time. Shopping may not be something you’re wanting or able to do right now, and that’s totally fine! I don’t want anyone to feel like they have to shop this sale, life will go on and you will survive without the latest fall booties or leather moto jacket!

How to Prep for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

This year, in my Anniversary Sale coverage, I’m planning on adding a bunch of outfit ideas to each post so that whether or not you shop the sale, you can get some outfit inspiration for how to wear your new pieces, or how to wear similar pieces you already own!

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

What makes this sale so great is that it’s the only chance you get to buy brand new items for fall (and summer) on sale, before they’re available anywhere! Items are steeply discounted, which is what makes the sale so legendary!

What’s really awesome is that this year, they’re letting everyone preview the sale and even create a Wishlist! You just need to create an account if you don’t already have one and boom—all your favorites are saved in one place. I love that they’re doing it this way instead of the catalog this year.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dates

The sale opens to all card members on August 13th and then opens to everyone on August 19th.

How to Get Early Access

To get early access, which means you can start shopping on August 13 (or earlier for some cardholders), you just have to have a Nordstrom card. You can quickly apply for one here if you want!

Anniversary Sale Shopping Tips

  • If you want to shop early and make sure items you love are still in stock, get the card. There’s always tons of stuff left, but the best stuff sells out fast–sometimes in a few hours!
  • Go through your closet in advance! I never remember what I have from the previous year, so going through and seeing where you’re lacking is the best way to be strategic about the sale and not end up with stuff you don’t need.
  • Make a wishlist on the LTK app! One of the best features of the app for sure, you can save products you love directly from there and then click ‘Add to Cart’ when the sale is open.
  • Stock up on essentials like bras, underwear, beauty—anything you know you use a lot. Buying now will save you a ton in the long run.
  • Remember, shipping is free! Not so much a tip, but just friendly reminder that Nordstrom ships almost everything for free, which is amazing! Returns are free too.

I’ll be updating you guys as the sale opens for cardholders and for everyone!
