The 2018 Nordstrom anniversary sale- Early Access!

I apologize in advance if you are not someone who cares about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’m sure your social media has completely been invaded over the past little while and you are quite sick of hearing bloggers gush about it.  If this is the case, please skip reading this post… because I am so excited about this sale and couldn’t wait to share my picks!!!  Early access shopping began this week and because I am a Nordstrom card holder, myself and other cardholders got easy access to the sale.  The sale will be open to the public July 20- August 5.

What is the sale so amazing?

Unlike most sales which mark down older merchandise, it is NEW Fall items that are discounted during this sale and then return to regular price at the end of the sale on August 5. The brands featured are some of my favourites, such as B.P, Free People, Top Shop, Sam Edelman, Tory Burch etc. Not just the no name, unheard of ones.

My advice:

Have a strategy. Figure out what the holes in your upcoming Fall wardrobe are. A new pair of perfect jeans? A cute bootie that will be an absolute staple? Cozy cardigans and sweaters for when the temperature chills? Make a list ahead of time. Otherwise the deals can be overwhelming!

If there is something you  love, make sure you keeping checking back…. Nordstrom will often for restock or add additional inventory 🙂  Don’t get discouraged if it says the item is sold out.  It’s not over until it’s over… The sale runs until August 5th.

Checkout! If  you have managed to score an item that you want, complete your purchase!  Nordstrom has super easy & hassle free returns if you change your mind later.  Last year I played it too slow and went back to look for more… by the time I went back to actually checkout a few of my favourites had sold out!

Here is a roundup of items from this year’s sale that I am loving! I have tried to keep my choices to more reasonably priced items. (Although I still have my eye on you adorable Ted Baker floral tote….) There is so many more fabulous pieces, I just couldn’t cram anymore on here LOL!

The Upcoming 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Why is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (NSALE) so amazing?

Unlike most sales which mark down older merchandise, it is NEW Fall items that are discounted during this sale and then the items return to regular price at the end of the sale in August.  The deals are incredible and the brands that are featured are some of my favourites, not just the less popular ones.  I usually treat myself to one item I have been obsessing about and then stock up on my Fall & Winter essentials: cute jeans, ankle boots, long cardigans, fun sweaters and dresses.

These were my picks from the Anniversary Sale last year and this was honestly one of the most fun posts for me to write:

Popular items sell out ridiculously fast! I missed out on a lot last year so I quickly got myself a Nordstrom credit card to make sure I had early access this year!  The application process was simple, the card has no annual fee and tons of other benefits. There is still time to apply and get early access to the sale!

Important Dates to remember for this sale:

July 11, Level 4 card members get to pre-shop the sale in stores only.

July 17-19, all cardholders get to shop Early Access in Nordstrom Canada stores.

July 20-August 5, our biggest sale of the year opens to the public.

July 12-19, all card members get to shop Early Access in stores and online.

July 20-August 5, biggest sale of the year opens to the public.

Prices go back up August 6.

 

Here is a preview of some of the items I am loving from this years sale:

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale- For Him!

When the Nordstrom Anniversary early access sale began last week I did a roundup of my favourite finds for women.  Tomorrow the sale opens to the public, so I felt it was only fair to share some of the amazing finds for men!  I haven’t included any of the suits on my list, only because there are too many to choose from.  That being said, if you are a man in need of an awesome new suit, this is the time to pick one up… the deals are smoking!  As with the women’s sale, it was so hard to narrow it down, so here are a few of my favourite finds for men:

Happy Shopping!
