The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Everything You Need To Know

Happy Thursday, loves!! Hope your week is going so well! Juuuuust in case you might be living under a retail rock, today is a pretty awesome day! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, referred to as the #Nsale on social media, has officially started! Wee If your unfamiliar with this super sale, let me explain why its so awesome and why you do not want to miss out on this spectaular shopping event! 

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The #Nsale is Nordstroms biggest sale of the year! What exactly makes this sale SO amazing!? The items you'll find on sale aren't your typical end-of-season pieces that you normally find on sale, rather, brand new styles for Fall at deeply discounted prices. No code is needed to shop the sale - Nordstrom simply displays the original price of the item as well as the discounted #Nsale price so you can see how much your saving right then & there! 

When Does the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Begin!? 
The entire sale runs from July 13 - August 6. Nordstrom Card holders get early access and can start shopping the BIG sale on July 13! Early access ends on July 20 and public access begins on July 21! If your not a Nordstrom Card Holder, you can apply to be one here - you can choose between the Nordstrom Retail Card or Credit Card. 
In addition to being granted early access, Card Holders can earn a $20 Nordstrom Note to use towards a purchase when used the day your approved. 

Not Interested in the Card!? Sign Up for Nordstrom Rewards!
To sign up for Nordstrom Rewards, you simply provide your name, phone number & email address and earn a $10 Note. Start shopping and earn 1 point for every dollar spent. Similar to the Nordstrom Card, for every 2000 points, you'll earn a $20 Nordstrom Note to spend on anything! Pretty fun, right!?

Benefits of Early Access. 
Early access allows you to get first dibs on some of the most popular items for Fall while everything is freshly stocked in all sizes. The most popular items sell out FAST, you guys! 
 shoes (gimme all the boots/booties!!)
 tops + blouses
 cardigans + sweaters
 jeans - jackets -  handbags

What Were The Most Popular Items Last Year?
Last years most popular pieces were:
AG The Legging Ankle Jeans
- BP. Open Front Cardigan ( no longer available, similar one here)
- Lush Deep V-Neck Tee

How to Make The Most of The Sale!?
Luckily, Nordstrom releases this pretty nifty Anniversary Sale Catalog. Peruse the pages to get an idea of what you want to purchase. I recommend stocking up on versatile must-haves to wear throughout the Fall & Winter. For me, this is shoes (booties, hello), sweaters, coats & cardigans, and possibly a new, great bag for the coming season. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is THE perfect time to invest in those higher end items you have your eye on that you wouldn't want to pay full price for later! ;) 
 

Stay tuned, as I'll be sharing some of my top picks in different categories during the sale! 

Happy Shopping!! xx
