9 Tips for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It’s almost that time of year for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I wanted to share my top 9 Tips for shopping the Anniversary Sale!


1.Book an appointment with a personal stylist/salesperson

This will make your life 100% easier! You can let them know what you are looking for ahead of time and they will pull it and set a room specifically for you! they will dig around the store for your sizes and show you the must have pieces from the sale! if you don’t have a favorite salesperson just call your local store and ask for the personal styling department or book online at Nordstrom.com/stylists (did I mention personal stylists are FREE?!)

2. Open a Nordstrom Rewards Card

Nordstrom cardholders get to shop the Anniversary Sale early! Early Access for Nordstrom cardholders July 12th – 19th & then opens to the public July 20th – August 5th. After August 5th prices go back up to full price! Plus, don’t forget this is a great time to use one of your Personal Triple Points Day!

3. Stock up on your basics

No one enjoys buying underwear and socks, but this is the best time to stock up on them! The basics are always an after thought and needed when you’re out! So why not stock up while they are on sale!?

4.  Treat yourself to something Designer

If you’ve never treated yourself to something Designer, now is the time! Find your first designer sunglasses, handbags, RTW or shoes from designers such as; Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Akris Punto, St. John, Burberry, Versace and even Gucci (+ so many more)! Everything is around 40% off and Designer pieces rarely go on sale!

5. Buy online and pick up in store

Since the sale starts on a Thursday and maybe you can’t take the day off to go shopping… you can shop from your office with Buy Online Pick Up In Store. When you’re off work you can swing by and pick up your pieces. If you’re even in more of a time crunch you can call the store and do curb side pick up! Yes, they bring out your fabulous new finds to your car! Does it get any easier?! When shopping online just tap the tab “Pick It Up Today” & see if it’s available at your local store!

6. If you love it, buy it

There isn’t an endless supply of Anniversary product & it doesn’t really get re-stocked. So if you’re on the fence it’s better to get it, then wait until tomorrow only to realize it sold out. Plus, Nordstrom has a great return policy so don’t stress about getting stuck with it!

7. Too busy to shop online or in store (or maybe you don’t like shopping at all) try an online stylist at Nordstrom

It’s a whole new shopping experience! Nordstrom Style Boards—a convenient and personalized way of shopping. Get style advice anytime, anywhere. An online Personal Stylists will create a Style Board just for you, with handpicked recommendations sent via text message. It’s so easy and simple – let me know if you’re interested as I’m a Nordstrom online stylist! Also, it’s free 🙂

8. Don’t miss the Glam Out Days

The Anniversary Sale Beauty Bash runs for two weeks with free samples, gifts with purchase and more. You’ll receive tips from beauty stylists and there are 450+ beauty exclusives. Every day is a different beauty line focus – find all the details here: nordstrom.com/content/beauty-glam-out
