Tuesday Tips: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale & More


#1 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

If you haven’t heard the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale begins this week!  If you are a Nordstrom Debit or Credit Card Customer, you have  Early Access  from July 13-20. During this time, only Nordstrom debit or credit cardholders can shop the sale. This is important because items usually sell out quickly and you get the first pick, so your size is more likely to be available. You still have time to sign up for a Nordstrom debit or credit card here. The debit card is so nice because it links to your checking account just like your bank debit card while still giving you all the perks of the credit card without overspending or paying interest.  It takes a few days to process a new card, so if you want to shop the Early Access Sale, you should sign up sooner rather than later.

The sale opens to the public on July 21, and prices go back up on August 7th.

What’s the Big Deal?

Nordstrom releases brand-new fall merchandise at seriously discounted prices.  In some cases, we are talking hundreds of dollars in savings!  Unlike other sales, where items start out at full price and then are marked down, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is opposite. Items start on sale for a selected period of time, and then prices go back up in August. You won’t find deals like this on brand-name items anywhere else for the rest of fall and winter, so people usually buy now and wear later.

So, What’s the Plan?

  1. Look through your winter wardrobe.  Are there any staples that you know you need?  Make a list of those items and your size!  Look for these items first when shopping the sale!  The sale usually also includes special makeup palettes, items for your home, accessories, purses, and other high price items at amazing prices!
  2. Look through the Nordstrom Anniversary Catalog  and see if anything catches your eye.  Add these items to you shopping list you started in #1.
  3.  I’ll be posting updates of my favorite sale picks here on the blog with links to make it easy for you to shop!  If you aren’t sure you want to purchase the item, save it to your Nordstrom Wishlist on their website.  It’s also a nice way to know when something you love comes back into stock in your size!

#2 A Few of My Favorites

I have several favorites that are currently on sale and I wanted to share them with you before they sell out in your size, because let’s face it, there’s nothing worse than being excited about ordering something only to find out that they don’t have it in your size anymore!

The Big Three to Think About Today:

Sonix Parker Glasses will be a part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! If you like them as much as I do, you can add them to your online Nordstrom Wishlist now and snag them as soon as the sale starts!

Free People Cardigan is currently 40% off and is my favorite cardigan!  It is selling out fast but is still available in two colors in several sizes.  It is over-sized and so soft with a flattering cut!  Yes, believe it or not I have been wearing it already because it may be 100+ degrees outside which means anyplace indoors is freezing (at least to me, haha).

Leopard Print Sandals are so cute and comfortable and have become the shoes that take my cutoff shorts and white tank summer uniform to the next level of cuteness! They too are selling out quickly at $45!  There are still several sizes left.  The website recommends ordering a half size up but I ordered my regular size and they fit perfectly!  The slides also come in several other colors that I love!

Gingham Picks & More

I had planned on sharing Gingham Favorites on a Budget today but I think I will wait to post that tomorrow because I shared a lot of information today.  I will try to add little sneak peeks of the items I know will be a part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  I, like you, will be surprised on Thursday morning with what is on sale outside of the little catalog.  I also can’t wait to share my favorite new fruit bars that I know you are going to love!  So lots of great posts heading your way this week!

Keeping It Short & Sweet,
