Everything You Need to Know About the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Sale is Here! 

Have you ever heard that saying Christmas in July? Well, that’s what the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale reminds me of. Not only because of the great deals, but because you are literally shopping for winter and fall clothes while it is 90 degrees out. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is just two weeks away and whether you are shopping it or trying to avoid the mass publication of blogger content, you can’t help but be tempted to shop these early fall deals. 

If you are a seasoned pro and the Nordstrom shoe department knows your shoe size, or you’ve never shopped the sale before, I am compiling all the things you need to know to prepare you for the event.

Give me the Details 

What is it?

Nordstrom has a semi-annual sale both in the Spring and Fall but what is so unique about the anniversary sale is that it releases new items to card holders and reward status members before they are released to the public. This gives you the first chance to shop for some of the best upcoming fall trends. These pieces are brand new and not currently listed anywhere and they are on sale for up to 40% off. 

Who can shop the sale?


Tuesday, July 9th only in-store.


Wednesday, July 10th – 11th only in-store 


Friday, July 12th at 12:30pm EST both in-store and online until Thursday July 18th, 2019


Friday, July 19th through Sunday, August 4th. But watch out because prices do increase starting August 5th.

How do I know what status I am if at all?

Not to worry! Nordstrom breaks down the status levels in this post here. If you are a card holder then you automatically apply for the Insider status. 

What if I’m not a Nordstrom card holder?

If you aren’t a Nordstrom card holder, it is never too late to apply for one. There are so many year round benefits to owning a Nordstrom card and you can find all the details for that here. However, if you aren’t in the financial state to apply for a new credit card (don’t worry most of us aren’t either) then you can still shop the sale with ambassador status if you qualify for that. Otherwise you’ll have to wait until July 19th to shop the sale.

Is the sale super picked over by the time public access is available?

It really depends on what you are shopping for. Sweaters, denim and shoes particularly boots, tend to sell out the fastest. Particularly the brands BP, Halogen and Vince because these brands are ‘big releasers’ and release some of their best products during the sale. 

How can I see what will be at the sale?

Nordstrom releases a catalogue online and both in the mail to card holders that you can view here

How can I shop the sale?

Both online and in store. My personal favorite is curbside or instore pick up. This way you can order online but don’t have to sift through the masses in store. You also get the benefit of not having to pay for shipping and spend a few days waiting for your pieces to come in the mail. Complete guidelines on how to place an in-store order for either pick-up or curbside can be found here



If you have any questions or need additional information on the sale that you want me to cover, leave your questions here or you can DM me on Instagram and I’ll be sure to answer them on my stories and in a blog post. 

I promise not to completely overwhelm you with Nordstrom Anniversary Sale content but if you are really eager to shop it, I will be rounding up my favorite picks early next week. 

Happy shopping!!
