For Nordstrom cardholders the beloved Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts THIS Thursday!  If you’re on the fence about getting a Nordstrom card (credit or debit) now might be the time to take the plunge.  Not only do you get early access to the biggest sale of the year but you earn points on every purchase.  Once you reach a certain level of points you get a $20 gift card to spend with NO minimum!  It’s really a Win Win.  If you decide not to go that rout you will still have plenty of time to shop the sale – July 21st through August 6th.

Now onto the sale!  Most retailers have some pretty great end-of-season sales but this particular sale is for the upcoming Fall season.  You got that right – prices are slashed for the NEW items coming in for Fall!  Check out what I’m looking forward to most…

Vests and wraps are always a good idea for fall, and these are gorgeous!  I’ve got my eye on this beautiful gray vest that will be marked down to $65!!  And don’t be surprised if that plaid number ends up on my feed too! 

Ruffles and plaid, oh my!  I want them ALL!  

And you can’t talk about the Nordstrom Sale without mentioning the boots 🙂  These are always a must! Boots can be expensive so snag them with these deep discounts while you can. 

Okay now before you get overwhelmed I have some tips for WINNING the sale – 

1. Take inventory of what you have.  If you’re all set on denim but could use a new pair of shoes, focus on that first.  Go through your closet now and make a mental note of what you could really use this fall.  That way you get what you need and if there is some wiggle room left in your budget you can add a few items you have your eye on. 

2. When you find what you LOVE, grab it!  I made the mistake last year of letting a few items sit in my cart and they were gone the next morning.. Nordstrom does a great job of restocking items but sometimes your size or color choice might not come back until the price has gone up, and that’s a real bummer.  Also remember they have an amazing return policy, so if need be you can easily return something. 

3. Check our blog page daily!  We know how hard it is to sift through sooo many sale items and this one tends to be overwhelming.  We will have a page dedicated to the Anniversary Sale and will update it daily!  Since it’s much easier to shop the sale online we will be doing the hard work for you 🙂 

Most of all have fun and enjoy the sale!  I’ll see you back here bright and early on the 12th!
