It’s that time of year. You know what I mean. The BIG annual sale starts soon! I’ve put together this guide to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Even if you’ve shopped it before, I’ve got all the details right here.
In addition, I’m sharing some of my favorite items purchased from earlier NSales along with links for this year’s versions. These are popular pieces that I believe deserve another look this year.
Details of the Sale
In case you don’t know (really, is that even possible?! lol!), the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the annual sale put on by the retailer and offers brand new products at super discounted prices. This year, they’ve included over 100 new brands.
But first, here are some important dates to pay attention to:
- Sale Preview for cardholders who qualify –July 6th
- Icon Early Access Sale starts – July 12th (Darn, not me!)
- Ambassador Early Access Sale starts – July 14th (This is my level.)
- Influencer Early Access Sale starts – July 16th
- Sale Opens to Everyone – July 28th
Regardless of where you fall in the lineup, do preview the items beforehand! You can set up a “Wish List,” ahead of time so you can easily choose items on your sale day. I already have far too many things on my list and I will definitely be pairing down.
You can pick up a new piece or two or stock up on basics, including underthings and beauty products.
If you are a cardholder, be sure to click on “Double Points” the day of your purchase! You want to take advantage of your points to earn Nordy Notes for future purchases!
Past Purchases Available in This Year’s Sale
I’m sharing just a few good buys that I purchased in past sales. These are among the most popular pieces that got lots of comments and were purchased by many of you.
You can get them at this year’s sale at highly discounted prices!
First off, one of the best buys, in my opinion, is this leather moto jacket. It has just a touch of that “biker” edge without too much hardware. It’s from Treasure and Bond, a higher-end Nordstrom brand. I picked mine up at least three years ago and you’ve seen it many times in various posts, with jeans outfits to dressy dresses.
For the sale, it’s priced $130 off, making it very affordable for a genuine leather jacket.
Here is a photo showing one way I styled the jacket. You can click on the image to review the post.
Put this one on your Wish List and grab it quickly on your sale day as it goes quickly!
Another good buy is this pair of cap-toe sneakers by Karl Lagerfeld. I bought mine during last year’s sale, and they sold out fast! They are the perfect blend of casual and classic chic.

The duster/cardigan is very similar to this open cardigan by Caslon, part of this year’s sale. It has a touch of cashmere and pockets! Lots of new colors available this year.
In the post, Classic Blouses: The Backbone of Any Wardrobe, I shared two tops that are available again this year. One, the twist front top, is a basic top from Gibson, and the second is a beautiful classic white blouse from Vince Camuto. These pieces work in both the workplace and for casual events. They are great basics to have in your closet!

Both tops sell out super fast, so put yours in your Wish List so you’ll be ready to go on your shopping day.
Wit & Wisdom Jeans
OK, ladies, if you haven’t yet tried these jeans, do so now while the price is crazy low! These are nice pair of jeans and they fit really well. I have the ankle jeans in dark wash, gray, and black as well as the Itty Bitty Bootcut Jeans in dark wash and black. Even at non-sale prices, they are super affordable. Here is the link to some Wit & Wisdom jeans styles that are available at the sale.
These bootcut jeans are not those crazy wide ones but provide just enough flare to create a flattering line. Here I’m styling the blue wash bootcut jeans. You can click on the image to review the post.
Comfy shoes are always a bit hit, and the slip-on sneakers I styled from last year’s sales got lots of comments. This year, there is a similar pair: Sofft High-Top Sneakers. These sneaks are a cross between a sneaker and a bootie which makes them work for casual and not-so-casual outfits. The 1″ platform also adds a little height.
