Hey hey hey friends… happy FRIYAY!!!! I’m back in action and planning ahead as I know we’ll all be taking some time off for America’s Birthday next week–so I am here to fill you in on all the necessary details and tidbits you need to know about to prepare for the happiest shopping event of the year AKA The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
Let’s back up a bit for some of you newbies or friends who may need a refresh.
So what is The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
Basically, it’s like Black Friday, but BETTER. Most retailers mark down old merchandise, but not Nordstrom–this sale gives you the opportunity to shop the NEWEST arrivals and specialty items before the fall season with merchandise that has yet to hit the sales floor! It’s the best way to go ahead and stock your wardrobe for gall in every way… from shoes to handbags to outerwear, apparel and more [including mens and kids, too!]
Tell me the dates… You need to mark this on your calendar like NOW.
The early bird gets the worm and this sale is no exception. Early access for Nordstrom cardholders begins July 12th and ends July 19th. Remember, things will sell out QUICKLY so get ready to shop until you drop to beat everyone else and snag your fav finds ASAP. So, how do you get early access?? You can open up a Nordstrom card HERE and the Nordstrom team will handle the rest! Other key dates to note:
July 12 to July 19 | early access [AKA all cardmembers get to shop early]
July 20 to August 5 | public sale access
August 6 | prices go back up… no one likes to pay full price, so don’t let this happen to you!
OK, so have I gotten you properly over-the-moon excited yet?!?!?! If not, I think this may help… Nordstrom released their Anniversary Catalogs online this week to give you a little taste of what’s going to be included in the sale–here’s a little collage below rounding up a few favorites I’m already eyeing:
