Something big is coming this Friday! It’s my favorite sale of the year: the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’m letting you in on all the tips and tricks to get the most bang for your buck during this sale.
When Can I Shop?
Early Access begins for cardholders on July 12th in store and online at 12:30 pm EST. You can apply either for a credit or debit card. The best part of the whole thing is you don’t have to pay with it during the sale if you don’t want to but you do have to have one of the cards to access the sale early. I have been shopping this sale for 5 years now and at first I shopped regular access and many things were sold out by that time.
The Anniversary Sale access opens to everyone on July 19th-August 4th in store and online. During this time some items will be restocked but it’s just a luck of the draw on which ones are. I’ll be giving constant updates on restocks during this time on my blog and Instagram.
How Can I Shop?
I prefer shopping online since I don’t live near a Nordstrom location. I shop via my laptop on the website or the app. I encourage you to create a Nordstrom account for real before the sale begins that has all your info saved. It makes check-out quicker and easier. It also is much more likely that you’ll get the pieces you want before the sell out.
What types of items will be for sale?
Fall/winter clothing and shoes for men, women, and children; items for your home and beauty products. I’m going to show you some of my favorites from last year’s sale and I’ll have a new post this weekend with my favorites from the 2019 sale.
I get one of these Leith cardigans every single year. This was last year’s gorgeous blue version. Always get your true size or size down because they run large! I have an XS on here. I paired it with the BP Camisole in black. This item will also be back this year in this color and some fun prints! I’ll definitely grab another one for layering.
The BP tees both long sleeve and short sleeve are always a great deal and perfect for layering!
My vest is North Face and I get one yearly. They go with everything and last forever. My thermal sold out during the early access last year and I still can’t get enough. The wedge tennis shoes are Steve Madden and the most comfortable for a long day of standing on your feet or walking.
Another fun camisole they had last year. I loved the color and detail on this one from WAYF.
Paired a Leith cardigan from 2 years ago from the sale with last year’s favorite dress of mine. This cute gray t-shirt material dress was worn to school and everywhere in between. I wish I had also snagged the black one they had!
This sweater is probably one of my favorite things I bought last year. It sold out during Early Access and I am still obsessed with it.
They always have the best BP Plaid shirts every year during the sale. They fit true to size and go with everything! These sneakers were also part of the sale last year.
This cardigan was 2-3 years ago but I still wear it weekly during the fall and winter. It goes with everything! It sold out during the Early Access and feels like cashmere.
My sweater is BP and can be worn forward or backward. I’d love this in another color for fall!
My Patagonia better sweater vest had been on repeat for years. I actually didn’t get it from the sale so I paid a lot more for it. Definitely a staple piece of mine for fall and winter!
I’ve almost bought this Patagonia Nano jacket every year during the sale and finally did it last year. It’s one of my most worn items and perfect for being easily packed for travel. These usually go fast during the sale!
My BlankNYC suede moto jacket is other item I never could quite pull the trigger on but is usually included in the sale. Unfortunately, I didn’t get this during the sale and it was much more expensive.
Besides all these items I love the Barefoot Dreams Cardigan, Zella Running sock packs, Antica Farmcista Diffusers and Candles in Prosecco, La Mer Favorites Kit, and Barefoot Dreams throws!
I’ll be posting all my favorites for this year’s sale on Friday afternoon. Make sure you’re following me on http://www.liketoknow.it/whenpigsflyblog to easily shop all my picks! Leave me any questions in the comments and I’ll be glad to help!
