This is the biggest sale of the year. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (fondly referred to by shoppers as the Nsale), it’s a month long event where new arrivals for fall are significantly marked down.
I have to say, my favorite part of the sale this year was the preview feature they introduced. In prior years, you didn’t know what would be included until the day of the event but this year, Nordstrom released a full preview on July 24th. This allowed shoppers to browse items they want and save to a wishlist, allowing for quick and easy checkout the day they can begin shopping.
Early access began for card holders on August 4th (and depends on your tier) and the sale opens to the public on August 19th. After the 30th, prices go back up, but pieces that may have sold out during the sale do tend to come back in stock, so its a great time to grab them before they’re gone for good!
I look forward to shopping this event every year. I didn’t find as much this year as I have in the past, but there are still a lot of good picks! I stuck to a neutral palette and purchased several investment pieces as well as a bunch of basics that were not included in the sale.
