The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019: Everything You Need to Know

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019: Everything You Need to Know

So it’s almost that time of year again—the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! I somewhat covered this last year, but I’m hoping to be more comprehensive this year so that everyone can get more bang for their buck. With that being said, here’s everything you need to know before the sale starts.

What is it?

if you’ve never even heard of the anniversary sale before, you’re probably wondering why I’m even dedicating a blog post to sale that hasn’t started. Well, the anniversary sale is probably Nordstrom’s biggest sale of the year and it’s unlike other sales out there. Instead of having items come out and then marking them down later, Nordstrom brings out all of their fall items at a discounted price. After the sale ends, the prices go back up to normal prices. So, it’s basically a sale to shop for fall pieces before summer even ends.

Who can shop it and when?

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is available to everyone, but at different dates. If you are a Nordstrom cardholder then you can start shopping the sale on July 12th at 12:30pm ET. Then, on July 19th the sale opens up to everyone else until it ends on August 4th. The next day, the prices go up.

If you’re not already a cardholder, don’t worry! You can still sign up for a card here. Honestly, if you’re interested in actually shopping the sale then a card is a must. I’ve tried to shop the sale in the past without one and practically everything was gone. But, that doesn’t mean you still can’t find pieces even without a Nordstrom card (so no pressure!).

My Tips

  • Have a plan: if there are certain pieces or brands that you know you love and want to stock up on for the fall, then start there. Items go fast so check out your favorites first.
  • Order online: personally, I love shopping in stores sooooo much more than online, but for this sale shopping online is 10x easier. You get to see the full range of products that your local store might not have and you can apply specific filters to help you find what you’re looking for fast.
  • Double points day: if you’re a cardholder then this is the time to use your double points! Enough said.
  • Maximize your savings: if there’s a specific piece you want that’s a little pricier, now is the time to buy it. Last year I fell in love with a pair of boots that were a little outside my price range, but during the sale were $100 cheaper. Definitely worth it and I wore them all fall and winter!
  • Don’t stress: a lot of people (re: bloggers) hype of this sale to the point that it’s completely stressful. If you want to shop it, use my tips. If you don’t, don’t! It’s really that easy and doesn’t need to cause unnecessary stress.

So there you have it: my guide to the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. If you have anymore questions feel free to reach out! Oh, and let me know what you want me to cover once the sale starts in the comments below!

My Picks for Shopbop’s Event of the Season Sale

Happy Wednesday everyone, we’re halfway through the week! Today is April 10th which marks the beginning of Shopbop’s two day event of the season sale. Shopbop tends to be a pricier shopping site, which is why I don’t usually feature it. But, if you’ve been looking to spend a little more on a designer dress or denim than the today through Friday you better get shopping.

To give you some details of the sale, you can save 20% off orders under $500 and 25% off orders over $500 with the code EVENT19. That’s definitely more than I have to spend, but there are some brands that are more affordable that you can save a little bit on (i.e. BB Dakota, Wayf, etc.). I will say, you could easily spend over $500 if you’re planning to stock up on high quality items. I definitely think this is the sale to purchase higher quality basics like tees, tanks, and denim.

So with that little intro to the sale, I picked out some favorites of my own and separated them into categories for you! The prices definitely vary with some under $100 finds, up to about $350. Happy shopping!
