Good morning friends! I always know it’s time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale when the Hallmark Channel celebrates Christmas in July. Today is the day! The sale is open to the public through August 5th. If you aren’t familiar with this sale it is unique because Nordstrom puts their new fall line on sale first and then everything goes up to it’s normal price on August 6th. It’s backwards! It is a great time to stock up on staples, denim, and my personal favorite shoes at end of season prices.
Tips Before Shopping:
I usually try to clean out my closet and take inventory of what I have that I will still wear this fall and winter and then make a list of items that I would like to buy. For example, this year I knew I was going to need a new pair of knee high brown boots. These are my favorite! I also wear cardigans at work almost everyday. I bought this cardigan in green and this hooded cardigan in heather. It can be 100 degrees outside and you’ll find me bundled up inside. I have found that taking inventory before I start shopping really helps with staying within my budget.
Items sell out fast and may or may not be restocked intermittently throughout the sale. I seem to have much better luck shopping the sale online. If you find something that you like in your size it is better to purchase it quickly and then return it if you don’t love it. One of my friends will even purchase an item she loves in another size if not available in her’s and then will exchange it when it is restocked. I thought this was a great way to make sure that you get the items you really want at the sale price. Nordstrom has free shipping, curbside pickup, and has an easy return policy.
This year I bought most of my items online as they were not available in my size in a nearby Nordstrom store. I will be sharing sizing and my thoughts on ways to wear pieces in different ways throughout the sale.
