Nordstrom is known for having great sales. There are two in particular that can send a city girl shopping in the burbs: The “Half-Yearly Sale” and the “Anniversary Sale.” The Half-Yearly sale is clearance, usually towards the end of the season. (Like, now.) The Anniversary Sale is a presale before the new collection hits the department store floor.

Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale starts today. The sale consists of a catalog of pre-Fall merchandise that is discounted 25% to 40% off. Each department has its own special items that are featured in the pre-Fall sale. You can sift through the catalog right here.
The presale runs from July 11th to July 21st but is limited to customers who have a Nordstrom credit card. Afterwards, on July 22, the sale opens to the general public. Prices return to normal once the sale ends in August.
Back-to-school items are especially attractive during this Nordies sale. For example, you know your kids want new Adidas sneakers for the start of school and they are right here for $35 from $55. (There is really no reason not to get them!) Over here are Hunter rain boots with buckles which are $70 from $115. There is even this Quicksilver backpack that’s $45 from $60. We even spotted this Supa Monster stroller that’s $260 from $350.
We are a bit choosier when picking pre-season items for ourselves but a DVF fit and flare dress caught our eye for $270 from almost $450. A casual camo jacket from Topshop is just $73 from $110 and there is an really amazing selection of workout wear with great discounts.
The selection this season is the best we can remember. It’s a novel idea to have the opportunity to buy new season merchandise at a significant savings. Identifying what you want for Fall is a bit more difficult but surely worth the effort. Sometimes it pays to plan ahead.
