The Who, What, When, Where, Why & How of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here and early access begins in just TWO days!  Today I’m prepping you with what you need to know to shop the sale.


Nordstrom is a leading fashion specialty retailer, offering customers one of the most extensive selections of clothing, shoes and accessories!  The company began as a shoe retailer, and has since expanded their inventory to include clothing, accessories, handbags, jewelry, cosmetics, and fragrances. There are 231 stores operating in 31 states, which includes 117 Full-Line stores and 110 Nordstrom Racks.


Nordstrom Anniversary SALE is the BIGGEST and the BEST Nordstrom sale of the year!!  It’s the only sale where BRAND NEW FALL items go on sale at the beginning of the season, rather than at the end of the season like the Nordstrom clearance sale or half yearly sale.


Early Access: July 12-19 for cardmembers only

Public Access: July 19-August 4

Sale Prices End: August 4

Online and in-store!  EVERYTHING from the anniversary sale is available online, but only SOME things are available in-store.  Each store will carry different inventory.  If you shop online for the things you’re dying to get, you can always do in-store pickup and grab the colors and sizes you really want, and then add on whatever you find that you love in-store. But your only guarantee to see absolutely everything is online!


Shopping the sale will A) save you $$$ on items you plan to purchase for the Fall/Winter anyway (sweaters, boots, scarves, hats, etc.) and B) give you high quality clothes, shoes, handbags, and accessories that will last all season at insanely great prices!


  1.  Have a game plan!
  2. Be prepared to shop ASAP!  The only way to do this is with a Nordstrom card.
  3. Buy wisely – get the ONE thing you’re dying to have from the Anniversary Sale that will last you months and months instead of spending the exact same amount of money on 10 items from a lower quality store that you’ll wear or use a couple times before it starts falling apart!
  4. Stay updated! Keep up with me on my instagram (@mykindofstyleblog) and here for the latest news, updates, try-on’s, restock alerts, and items I love!
