Earlier this year, Nordstrom announced they would end the tradition of its half-yearly sale and instead host six smaller sales. These smaller sales are said to coincide with national holiday weekends, when Americans tend to shop.
This week, ostensibly alongside President’s weekend, Nordstrom is hosting a sale where a large assortment of items are reduced to 40% off. Among the designer merchandise is this small Chloe Baylee bag that is $1300 from $2250, Ferregamo snakeskin sandals are $845 from $1690 and a Rag & Bone shearling is $1340 from $2500.
After sorting and resorting the sale merchandise, it seems as much of the sale inventory are items that fall into the transitional-spring category and holdovers from the winter sale. For example, this 3.1 Phillip Lim sweater is from the winter 2014 collection and is now 65% off and this 3.1 Phillip Lim shift dress is more traditional to spring and is now reduced 40%. There also seems to be a lot of great premium denim options, most of which are marked 40% off.
The sale will continue through February 22nd. The next big holiday weekend is Memorial Day, which falls on May 26th this year. No need to speculate what will be on sale during that sale.
