Rest assured, we'll be researching and sharing our favorites with you on style boards in an upcoming blog post and through our LTK shop. We so appreciate you shopping with us!

Let's get down to the details, so you can make the most of the NAS!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (NAS) is Nordstrom’s biggest fashion event of the year and has become legendary amongst Nordstrom shoppers who look forward to outstanding preseason savings on fall and winter merchandise - clothing, shoes, handbags, accessories, jewelry, cosmetics, as well as fragrances, home goods and more. The past couple of years have also featured a limited amount of discounted summer merchandise.
The NAS is the perfect time to purchase wardrobe essentials (think tees, undergarments, sweaters, jackets, and shoes) that are great building blocks in your closet. During an influencer insider meeting about the #NSale, we were told that this bra has been the best seller for the past few years. In addition, these five brands: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 are also top sellers during the sale. This year, Nordstrom predicts the same brands to be hot, with many items selling out early in the sale.
In addition to wardrobe essentials, we recommend purchasing an investment piece or two. In prior years, our readers and clients have invested in handbags, leather jackets, fine jewelry, and luxury footwear at significantly discounted prices.
EARLY ACCESS: Early Access is a special perk reserved for Nordstrom cardmembers. Your Nordy Club level is based on yearly spend amount, though all cardmembers automatically start at Influencer status. The higher your status, the earlier you shop.
In addition to accessing the sale early, you will:
We don’t mean to sound like an advertisement but after all our years of experience with the Anniversary Sale, both as a Nordstrom Personal Stylist, and as Independent Personal Stylists, we can attest to the benefits! Bottom line, you have a better chance to save on your favorites before they sell out!
SALE PREVIEW: starts on June 29th when everyone can get a sneak peek at sale items. And new this year: no paper catalog but a digital catalog will be available on the website and app.
SALE OPEN TO PUBLIC: Everyone can shop the Anniversary Sale online starting at 9:01pm PT on July 14/12:01am ET on July 15 or in person during regular store hours.
SALE ENDS: The Anniversary Sale ends at 11:59pm PT on July 31/2:59am ET on August 1.
Here is a chart showing the dates to shop:
SHOP EARLY! - Not joking at all on this one. Popular items notoriously sell out quickly, so even if you are thinking about it - GET IT. You can always easily return or exchange at a later date.
SHOP ONLINE - Shopping online is the most efficient way to get exactly what you want - especially now that you can have everything saved ahead of time on your Wish List.
ADD ITEMS TO YOUR WISH LIST EVEN IF OUT OF STOCK - You will be notified when/if they're restocked. (This is new for 2022).
BUY MULTIPLE SIZES - If you're questioning the fit of a certain item, you may want to consider buying multiples so you can compare.
KEEP CHECKING ON SOLD OUT ITEMS – If an item sells out, keep checking back. We have had the best luck checking online first thing in the morning for restocked items.
DOWNLOAD THE NORDSTROM APP – If you have the Nordstrom App, you can get notifications when items on your Wish List and Shopping Bag are back in stock.
DOUBLE YOUR REWARDS – Cardmembers can use a Personal Double Points Day to earn 2X the points on any day you choose.
GET NORDSTROM EMAIL UPDATES – Sign up for emails so you can stay up-to-date on Anniversary Sale news.
SHIPPING– it's FREE and they will ship almost anything on the site to anywhere in the United States—even Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. However, during the Anniversary Sale, we've learned that it's worth paying for expedited shipping so your order gets priority and therefore less risk of getting sold out.
