How to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 starts for card members this Friday, 7/12! The sale opens to the public on July 19th, and prices go back up to full price on August 5th. This is the best time to stock up on quality basics for Fall, your go-to beauty items, home pieces and more. I will be shopping the sale early Tuesday morning so that I can share my finds this week!!

Helpful tips to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019:

Shop early

ONLY Nordstrom cardholders can shop a week before in the early access sale from July 12-18. I signed up for the card last year during the sale because items usually go quickly and you get the first pick and size. If you want to shop early access, you can still sign up for a Nordstrom debit or credit card. The sale opens to the public on July 19th, and prices go back up to full price on August 5th.

Take inventory before the sale starts

Take a loot at what you already have in your closet before shopping the sale. This is helpful so that you aren’t just buying things because they are marked down and are actually searching for pieces that are missing from your wardrobe.

Think Fall

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is made up of mostly brand new essential items that will go back to full price in August. Go ahead and get a new pair of boots or a classic warm sweater while they are marked down.

Stock up

Many beauty items are included so I always stock up on multiples of my go-tos and gifts for friends.

Avoid the line

I personally like to order online or get to Nordstrom right when they open because this is the busiest time to shop!
