Hey guys! Soooo…. today I wanted to let you all know about THE BIGGEST SALE OF THE YEAR (in my personal opinion) the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale a.k.a #NSALE! If any of you have been following me since I started you know that this sale comes once a year and it is the MOTHER of all sales because it is a sale on brand new merchandise for Fall! This is the ONLY SALE that takes HUGE discounts on an upcoming season of brand new styles and every year it is a record breaker! If any of you have shopped this sale you know that items practically SELL OUT on the first day of the SALE…. This is all the more reason to start prepping and creating your strategy NOW! So here’s the Down-low:
WHEN DOES IT START??
July 12 : EARLY ACCESS starts for card holders ONLY! SALE begins at 3amEST ONLINE & 10am IN STORES ( I highly recommend purchasing online and either shipping or doing In-Store Pickup so you can make sure to get your items)
JULY 20 : Sale opens to the PUBLIC
August 5 : SALE ENDS
** If you are not a card holder, GET ONE HERE!
As I mentioned before, per my experience ITEMS SELL OUT ON THE FIRST DAY of the SALE and they may or may not restock for the PUBLIC access sale which starts on July 20th… Having early access means you get to shop a week before general public and are more likely to score the items on your wish list! I also use this time to early Christmas shop for family members!
The only way to have EARLY ACCESS to the sale is if you have the Nordstrom Card! If you apply for the card you can get $40 off to shop the sale if you make a purchase the day you are approved! Also, you get rewards points with Nordstrom every time you use your card to get money back! Nordstrom has points days and you are granted a triple points with your card and can use it during the sale to get more money back! Basically, triple points is a point for every dollar you spend x3 and once you reach 1000 points you get Nordstrom Notes or money back in the mail to use on future purchases! The Nordstrom card can be used at NORDSTROM, NORDSTROM RACK & HAUTELOOK!
WHY SHOP THE SALE?
This sale as I mentioned above is unlike any other SALE! HUGE name brands take their brand new up and coming merchandise for FALL/WINTER & discount it for a few weeks and it only happens at NORDSTROM! This is the perfect time to check out the up and comig trends for Fall/Winter as well as try out items you may or may not want to pay full price for later! Nordstrom is so great about their return policy so if you see something you like during the sale don’t be fearful that you can’t return it because Nordstrom will allow you to return/exchange without any questions! I also would much rather online shop than go in store only because people get crazy during this sale (it’s up there with Black Friday) and lots of items get picked over and there is a larger selection online!
What Do You Need to Do before the SALE?
Check your closet:
The past few years I have been a trendy shopper during the sale and I still love those items, but this year having a baby I am going to try and be more practical and buy long term pieces (not to say I wont have the occasional impulse buy 😉 ) However, make sure to check out your closet and see what you really need! Sales can get us a little crazy sometimes and we end up with lots of things we don’t need in the long run! My personal favorite items to buy on this sale are expensive coats and shoes! I love getting a couple pair of Fall boots/booties during this sale because I know I will wear them and it’s worth it! So make a plan!
SET A BUDGET!
Like I said, you can get caught up in the whirlwind of a sale (especially this one when items SELL OUT in hours!) and wind up at the end of a month with a hefty little surprise in the mailbox 🙂 so make sure that you keep your personal budget in mind when shopping!
Bookmark my BLOG:
I will have a Nordstrom Anniversary SALE TAB on the top of the blog with all of my personal picks HERE! There will be a dropdown with various categories and I hope to get one up for men and baby this year and have my husband share his favorites!
What Can I Help With?
- I will attempt to be your personal stylist sharing my favorites from the sale so you can shop easier and faster! I hope to be able to do a few try on sessions on my instastory to help with sizing of items I end up getting, so stay tuned!
- I am here for you if you want to ask me any style questions via email or DM and I will be happy to help!
- I do make a small commission if you purchase from clicking through my blog on an item or if you go through @liketoknow.it and it helps me maintain Make Today a Hollyday and allows me to do what I do, so if you do end up purchasing an item that you saw on the blog if you could click through that item from the blog when you add to cart and purchase I would be so grateful! Even if you like an item and then don’t end up getting it and click through ANY item on my blog or @liketoknow.it product link it will still give me credit for a sale
So WHO’S READY FOR THE BIG SALE?!?!? The countdown is now one ONE WEEK AWAY!!
I hope this guide will help prepare you all for this HUGE SALE! I will be at the beach when the sale starts (with no Nordstrom around) but I plan on next day shipping what I purchase to share with you all as well as creating guides on the blog with all my favorites on the day of the sale so you all can shop early so STAY TUNED NEXT THURSDAY (a week from today) for my picks!
I hope you all had a relaxing 4th and will have a great day heading into this coming weekend! Lots of love! XOXO!
