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 begins Monday at 3am for Nordstrom credit card holders. 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 options right here.
The presale t is limited to customers who have a Nordstrom credit card. Afterward, on July 28, the sale opens to the general public. Prices return to normal once the sale ends near the end of the month.
“Back-to-school” items and baby gear are especially attractive during this Nordies sale. It’s interesting that more upscale designers have realized that pre-gaming sale season is better than post-season markdowns. Don’t forget to also check out the beauty deals. We are always a sucker for a new shade of lipstick or updated nail polish.
Most of the most popular merchandise sells out before the sale opens to the public. That might be enough incentive to open a card or find a close friend who already has an account. Above are our favorite sales picks. We will be sure to keep this space updated as new items are spotted.
