It's Almost Here - the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Happy Thursday, friends! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially starts tomorrow, Friday July 12th, at 12:30pm EST! The biggest trends I saw for fall in the catalog were chunky knits, basics, and animal print. Seriously, I was in heaven with all the python and leopard print pieces I saw.

 Each year, I cover the #nsale, but never end up ordering much besides the same things, year after year. I order essentials, like blankets, bras, candles, bath towels and jeans! I find that these items give you the most bang for you buck during the sale. Also, they're staple pieces/items that you'll use and wear year after year, versus trendy items. Be sure to check out the end of this post for my 'must have's.' 

Here's all you need to know about the biggest sale of the year:

What is it? 
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the best sale of the year. Unlike other sales, this sale includes all new arrivals, instead of discounts on last season's trends. You'll see top brands like Stuart WeitzmanTory BurchBurberryMovadoRag & BoneNikeDiptyqueBarefoot Dreams, and so many more, at discounts you won't find anywhere else. Added bonus, there's no promo code needed - all prices are as marked. 

Key Dates
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early access is July 12-18th. Early access is reserved for Nordstrom Card holders, only. Trust me, it is worth signing up for this credit card or retail/store card (that's what I have), as things sell out quick. You can still sign up here, to get early access. The sale will open to the public July 19th, and run through August 4th. On August 5th, all the prices will go up, so be sure to plan accordingly. 

Who's it for?
Everyone! There are tons of sale items for women, men, children, home and of course, beauty! Shop the Women's catalog here, so you can create your shopping list ahead of time. Tip: be sure to check out the catalog ASAP and add any items you're eyeing into your cart now. The sale can be shopped online, or in-store. I highly suggest shopping online, as not all stores will carry every item, and they may sell out more quickly. However, if you do choose to go that route, I suggest securing the item online ahead of time, before you head to the store, or getting in touch with your Nordstrom Stylist (if you have one).

Plan Ahead
As I just mentioned, the catalogs are available online, so definitely flip threw it now. The catalog is only a glimpse into all the deals this sale has to offer. Next, I suggest creating a strategy to help you figure out what you need, and making a budget. It's always tricky when things go on sale, and it is easy to click 'Purchase' and then having buyers remorse in the future. Sticking to your 'must have's' will help you avoid this. If you still get trigger happy, remember, Nordstrom offers free shipping and free returns, always!  They also offer online pickup, onsite alterations, and even personal stylists (free of charge) at your fingertips.
