It’s here, ladies! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is my favorite time of year–and by far my favorite sale. I have been shopping this sale for a little over 6 years now. Fun fact: I worked at Nordstrom for about two years in the ‘Individualist’ department in Tampa! When I tell you this is the best sale of the year, I’m not lying, they literally give this stuff away. You won’t be able to find these items discounted as much as they are after the sale ends.
I will say, because I want this page to be completely transparent, that I was not impressed by their shoe selection this year. I found some, but not many I was thrilled about. I normally use this sale as an opportunity to stock up on fall/winter items for less. It gets me in the mood to drink Chai Latte’s and burn a cinnamon scented candle! Basic, I know. LOL. You’re talking to the queen of basic.
A couple tips I’d like to share when shopping this event because of the chance of a popular item going out of stock quickly and/or you don’t have a Nordstrom card and have to wait til full access is available:
- It is good to browse the sale before your time to shop and save all your favorites–with your size–to your Wish List.
- When it’s your time to shop, go to your wish list, you will be able to see all the items that are currently out of stock in the size you selected, therefore you can skip over those ones. (side note: it is likely Nordstrom will restock fast selling items, but not always guaranteed)
- Lastly, it is okay to check out multiple times to ensure you get your desired items. For example, click on one of the items in your wish list, add to your cart and immediately check out! If you wait to check out after all of your items are in your cart, another item may have already sold out. This happens often and has happened to me a lot before
