Did you know the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts NEXT Week??? I think the majority of you out there already know this… I’ve been bombarded seeing it all over social media too, so I won’t spend too much of your precious time going over all the pertinent details. Let’s do this–if you’re not aware of the specifics, scroll down to the bottom of this post and I’ll fill you in… otherwise, let’s move onto my gametime strategy…
I’ll be the first one to admit that this is one of the times during the year I MAJORLY stock up when it comes to shopping… especially when it comes to basics, booties, athletic gear, and beauty–just a few of my favorite categories included in the Anniversary Sale. Having said that, I am making a plan to ONLY purchase items I know I will wear and truly need when I start shopping next week, so just like in years’ past, I’ve made my must-have checklist of what I’m looking for:
SO, WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST RODEO IN SHOPPING THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE?
FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, WHAT IS THIS SALE ALL ABOUT?
Basically, it’s like Black Friday, but BETTER. Most retailers mark down old merchandise, but this sale gives you the opportunity to shop the NEWEST Nordstrom arrivals/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 in every way… from shoes to handbags to outerwear, apparel and more.
HOW CAN I BE AMONG THE FIRST TO SHOP THE SALE?
If you’re a Nordstrom card holder, you get to shop ONE WEEK earlier than the general shopping audience, beginning on Friday, July 12th at 12:30PM Eastern. That means you’ve still got time to apply for a card HERE and make it happen… trust me, it’s worth it with all of the perks, free $60 Nordstrom note, personal shopping days, etc. Here are the full range of dates so mark your calendar like NOW!
OK, SO HAVE I GOTTEN YOU PROPERLY OVER-THE-MOON EXCITED YET?!?!?!
If not, I think this may help… Nordstrom released their Anniversary Catalog online last week to give you a little taste of what’s going to be included in the sale.
And as always… I am here to help YOU so comment below or email me with any specific requests of what you’ll be shopping for–jackets + outerwear, gifts, shoes + handbags + accessories, basics for layering, etc. To keep it concise and organized, I’ll be adding daily posts via the Blog, Instagram and LiketoKnow.It and will add drop-down navigation for each sale category along with try-on sessions to share how specific items fit, what they look like in person, etc. It’s truly my favorite time of the year to shop and I want you to save big, too!
