The Best of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is an annual event featuring BRAND NEW fall merchandise and Nordstrom exclusives in everything from clothing, accessories, beauty products, and home.

While the inventory is heavy with seasonal sweaters, coats, etc., there are a lot of year-round pieces too. So you can stock up on wardrobe building basics and fall and winter must-haves.

The sale is overwhelming, to say the least, but I shop it for you, until my eyes-cross and my fingers hurt, using our insights, data, and analytics, sharing only the best of the best.

Savings range from 30% to 40% off, so it’s a fantastic opportunity to stock up on better basics, especially if you have a few holes in your wardrobe. And it’s also a great way to save on a splurge. 

Looking back at the pieces in my closet that I turn to over and again; most of them were purchased at the sale. 

This year, some categories killed it, others not so much.

For example, coats and jeans and surprisingly their dresses are fabulous, there are a handful of sweaters I love but most of them looks like a lot of the same, and there wasn’t a trouser worth mentioning.

There are great deals to be found in their accessories, and there are some great wardrobe builders.

Starting today, July 9th, ICON level shoppers can access the sale, Ambassadors are the 10th and Influencers are the 11th. The sale opens to the public on July 15h.

The BEST way to shop is before you have access is to put your picks on your wishlist, and then when you can shop simply move them into your cart.

BEST of The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2024

A few quick points before we dive in.

First, you’ll see a lot of influencers doing try-on hauls in the store during the sale. I don’t do that, mostly because I have no bandwidth with a house full of kids over the summer, and second, I don’t feel comfortable taking up all that time and attention in the dressing room.

One year, I added up what another influencer bought at the sale, and it was north of $25k.

I’m a strategic shopper all year, and I have plenty, so while I certainly spend money during the sale, I won’t pretend I don’t have a budget.

Rest assured, I’ll be sharing my purchases as they arrive, so you can see how they look in real life.

Next, this post is FOR YOU. It is curated using everything I know about our community, from our conversations in my DMs to the data I receive about what is selling well.

When there is a plus-size option, I make a note and put a 🎁 next to what I think would make a great gift and a ⭐ if it’s a personal favorite.

Finally, for this post, I don’t go into all of my usual commentaries because I would never be able to finish it, but I will add suggestions on how to wear and style my favorite pieces as we move through the week.

Thanks for the time you have spent sorting through the sale items. I’m surprised at how many of your choices were already on my wish list as I am waaay older than you and probably most of your readers. The coats included in this year’s sale are wonderful, however, my heavier coats did not leave the closet last winter so I will restrain myself to simply replacing my trench.
