Can ya’ll believe it’s mid- July!? Where did the time flying by? Having said that, it’s the most exciting shopping time of the year.. THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE!!! A.K.A. #NSALE is finally here. And I couldn’t be more excited (it feels like Christmas in July)! This is by far, my favorite sale of the year!! Seriously! With only moments left until early access starts, let’s chat about best practices for shopping the sale.
Here are some frequently asked questions about the sale:
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, nicknamed #Nsale is Nordstrom’s biggest sale of the year! For a limited period of time, Nordstrom offers brand new fall styles at deeply discounted prices during the #Nsale
How long does the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last?
Card holders can shop the sale starting July 13 – August 6! If you’re not a card holder, but would like to be, you can apply for either the Nordstrom Debit card or Nordstrom Credit card to still receive early access! The sale opens to everyone (non cardholders included) on July 21, 2017.
Why do I need to take the advantage of early access to #NSale?
Early access is beneficial because the hottest items sell out first. Access for card holders starts (July 13th) a full week before the general public (July 21st) can shop the sale, so sizes and selections are still fully stocked. In addition, the day you sign up for a Nordstrom debit or credit card, you get a 20 Nordstrom note that can be used towards you purchase. Other perks of the card include personal triple points days where you have the opportunity to earn additional $20 notes. I had early access last couple years, and wanted to wait to see the products that I spotted in the catalog in person, and by the time I had a chance to do that it was sold out in store and online. So, this year I will be purchasing everything online, and using their free returns policy should the items not work out.
What kind of deals to expect at the #NSale?
A preview of sale items for both women and men can be found in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog here.. Some of the most popular discounted items include shoes, tops and blouses, cardigans and sweaters, jeans, jackets, undergarments, purses, and dresses. You can expect discounts of 25-30% off, and in some cases more. I usually stock up on pricier/designer items during this time as they traditionally either don’t go on sale at all, or not with these types of discounts. The Tory Burch riding boots and handbags, etc. have been one of the most popular finds in years past.
What were the most popular items from last year’s sale?
The most popular items last year were:
Get them as quickly as you possibly can, because they sell out so quickly and are at incredibly low prices.
How to shop the #Nsale?
I recommend previewing the sale products via the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog, and starring items you are interested in. I also tend to shop for staple items first. Last year, I had the most success, and got the most use out of staple items I purchased like fall booties, BP Open Front Cardigan, work wear, athletic gear, simple tee shirts and dresses! I also really recommend shopping for these online. Most Nordstroms have an “in-store pickup” option, so if you’re worried about fit, you have the opportunity to scoop up the most desirable items and sizes via their website, and going to the store when it’s convenient to try them on. If they don’t fit, you can return them right there.
