The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here! If you are a cardholder at Nordstrom, you may already be aware that Icon level spenders get to start shopping today. Ambassador level spenders start shopping on July 12, while the rest of us cardholders can start to shop on July 13. If you are not a cardholder, the sale will open up to the public on July 17. So, start your wish list!
If you are new to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, it is an annual sale which includes basic items and pre-fall items from participating brands which are offered at sale prices for a limited time. Prices will go back to retail on August 6. So, the last day to shop will be August 5. After that, you will spend more for the same item.
It is really important to not go crazy during this sale, or you could blow your entire fall budget. Use some restraint and make your shopping list, based on what you really need, before the sale starts. Once it starts, stick to your list, or your cart will look like it does at the supermarket when you go hungry before dinner.
If you are wondering how to make a list, shop your closet first. Take a look at what you have from last year and see if you still plan to wear it. This is a great time to divide your wardrobe into keep, store, and donate piles. Once you have everything organized, make a list of what you need to replace, and what you actually need. Oftentimes, this sale is great for basic items. I would steer clear of trendy items because it is a pre-fall sale, and when fall hits the stores, the trends could be a little bit different. This is a sale for shopping basics, and timeless items. Also, they usually have good deals on beauty items!
Normally I make a shopping list for the sale filled with basics such as layering tank tops, solid-colored tees, and workout clothing. I usually pop one or two other items into my shopping cart such as a pair of boots or a cute top. This year, I am smitten with all of the sweaters! Oh my! The sale has so many cute sweaters! I am going nuts! Obviously, I cannot buy all of the fabulous sweaters I see, but I have a wish list! One of these sweaters will come home with me, I am not sure which one yet. haha
If you want to have some fun during the sale, grab something in pink! After all, this year is all about the upcoming Barbie movie and wearing pink to celebrate it. Love that! Hence, the pink coat I have my eye on . . .
I recommend shopping this sale online for your first go-around. You can have everything shipped directly to you and return anything that doesn’t work. The sale gets crowded and chaotic during the first few days. It is so much more luxurious to shop from the comfort of one’s own home. Love!
