Y’all the best sale of the year is here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is almost here. If you’ve never shopped the sale before or have no clue what it is – its where you can shop brand new fall/winter pieces at a discount for a limited time! The sale consists of items that are discounted up to 40% off! We’re talking: women’s clothing, accessories, beauty, kids, home, gifts! If you’re a first time shopper the sale can be a little overwhelming, so I’m sharing my tips to make the sale easier to shop!

1. Dates to Remember

Early Access: July 12 at 3am –  Early Access begins! Early access is only for Nordstrom card holders – so if you want your best shot of getting pieces that would normally sell out, I will definitely look into getting the card! *even if you get the credit card and don’t put anything on it you still have access to shop early!*

Early Access: July 12-19 Early Access sale opens to everyone, so this is your chance to shop if you don’t have the card! You can place the items you want on your wish list, but wont be able to check out until the sale opens to the public July 20!

Public Access: July 20-August 5 – The sale opens to everyone! If you’d don’t have the card this is when you will be able to check out your items that are saved on your wish list! August 5th is the last day to shop the sale, prices will go back up the 6th!

2. Look At The Online Catalog Now

Make a list and check it twice 🙂 click here to scope out the catalog now of what is going to be for sale. There is a lot of items to narrow down what you really want because trust me, things sell out – FAST!

3. Use Your Triple Points Day

If you’re a cardholder you get to pick and choose a couple days a year to earn 3x points on purchases. If you know you are going to be splurging I will use a triple points day so you are closer to receiving a note!

4. Shop Online

In-store will probably be crazy during the early Access week, and hard to find specific items so shop online and pick up in store! Or have it delivered. 1 of the MANY reasons why I love Nordstrom is free shipping, free returns – all the time!

5. Check Out Your Closet Before The Sale

Are your boots from last year all scuffed? Do you need a new jacket?  Get a head start on what you want and need for the upcoming season!

6. Buy Staples

This sale is a great time to take advantage of the sale and buy quality pieces – denim, boots, basics, outerwear.

7. Stock Up On Beauty Favorites

If you’re a beauty lover then you know makeup and beauty products/tools rarely ever go on sale! During the NSALE they always have tools, expensive fragrances, makeup, travel kits, etc on sale!

8. Buy It Anyway

Trust me, you don’t have time to go back and forth on deciding if you want something! If you think you want it, buy it because it will sell out!
