Hi babes and happy Best-Shopping-Day-Ever aka Day 1 of Early Access for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Nordstrom card holders receive the benefit of having early access to shop the sale from July 13-July 20th. Then on the 21st, the sale opens to the public. If you have a Nordy card, I recommend you shop as soon as you can during early access, and if you don’t have a card, then I highly suggest you shop it asap on the 21st! Items tend to sell out quickly, but the great news is that a lot of the products will be restocked or put on backorder through out the sale, so don’t be discouraged if something isn’t available right away – be sure to check back!
The sale went live at 2am, which means I’m wring this post at 2am, so please forgive any typos, as I’m a bit delirious… delirious with excitement that is! This sale is basically like Christmas in July because unlike other sales in which stores mark down items as the season is ending, Nordstrom debuts brand new items that you can actually wear NOW! There’s nothing worse than buying a winter coat in March just to have to wait until December to wear it. The pieces from this sale are ones that you’ll want for these late Summer months, as well as for Fall and Winter!
I also love the Nordstrom Sale because they have FREE shipping and FREE returns. I have returned countless items and the process is fool-proof. Each shipment comes with a return label. So all you have to do is just pop that box right in your local USPS Blue Box and off it goes. In about 7-10 days (usually sooner) you will receive an email notification letting you know that your items were received and the return is being processed. Then between 3-5 days you will see the refund on your online bank account.
And if current seasonal items on sale AND free shipping wasn’t enough, Nordstrom offers their loyal customers an awesome program called Nordstrom Rewards, in which you earn Nordstrom Notes each time you spend. You earn Nordstrom Notes each time you use your card AND you gain early access to this sale!
So, in years past, I would shop online the first day of the sale and impatiently wait for my best friend aka the UPS man to drop off those beautiful brown boxes on my door step. But this year, I decided that an in-store shopping experience was in order, so Tony and I are making the 3 hour drive to Kansas City to shop the sale! Be sure to tune into my Instagram Stories, as I’ll be doing dressing room diaries (with shop-ready links) and then on Friday I’ll be sharing a huge post on the items I bought at the store so I can give you the 411 on sizing, pricing, quality, etc. But in the mean time, I’ve rounded up my favorite pieces that I’m loving right away and look forward to seeing in person later today!
