- Nordstrom's biggest sale of the year, Anniversary Sale, is here
Its right about that time, when you are just getting into the groove of summer and here comes this once in a year amazing Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, its biggest sale of the year, that also means prepping for fall wares and stocking up your closet, hopefully you didn’t spend all your coins on those 4th July sales (yikes). We’ve been saving for this and we also know that the Nordstrom Anniversary sale can be all too daunting. What should you get, what will be popular. We will give you the key dates to know, what items are our must haves plus others in different categories that you can shop with early access or general public.
Although Nordstrom holds six designated sale events each year, The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is Nordstrom’s biggest and best sale of the year and unlike other large department store sales, this one features limited amounts of merchandise that will be on the floors for the upcoming season rather than last season markdowns, plus designer merch that you won’t often find on sale all sent to Nordstrom stores early. If you are looking to refresh your closet, add a few of the top trends for fall, this is a good time to do it while saving some money. The sale is not just for womenswear, there’s menswear, beauty, shoes, accessories, outerwear and kids from brands such as Hugo Boss, AG, Adidas, Ksubi, Cole Haan, Ted Baker, Madewell, Veronica Beard (!!!), Frame Denim, Vince, AG Jeans, rag & bone, Nike, Spanx, La Mer (!!!!), Jo Malone, Lancome, Charlotte Tilbury, Tom Ford and Trish McEvoy. A. LOT. OF. OPTIONS but its only going on for two weeks (through August 4), then prices go back up on August 5.

Now that we have that out of the way lets talk about the items up for sale. We’ve broken them down to help ease your shopping. The one thing to also note about the sale is that since Trunk Club is part of the Nordstrom Family (they were acquired by Nordstrom in 2014 for an estimated $350M). Therefore, Trunk Club members, Nordstrom cardmembers (shop Early Access) can also get in on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale fun by shopping merchandise at the Chicago or 5 other Clubhouse locations ( Boston, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, and Washington D.C.) across the country. The name of the game with this sale is discounts. There are some items we don’t recommend because the pricing to discount wasn’t convincing enough to buy but certainly if you need, feel free to use our link. There are some items in the sale that may be available at some other retailers for some of the same prices if not lower so no need to drive yourself nuts. Research if you are on the fence about making a purchase.
