The countdown is officially on to the best sale of the year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017! This sale is really unique because instead of marking down old inventory, the products on sale are brand new for the upcoming season. It may seem like you’re getting ahead of yourself to shop in July for Fall and Winter, but believe me when I say, you’ll regret it if you don’t. The pieces Nordstrom puts on sale for its Anniversary Sale tend to be popular all Fall and Winter long, but if you wait until then you will have to pay full price (or they might even sell out, eek!)

To get an idea about the products that will be on sale, last year’s top-selling products were AG jeans, the perfect cognac cardigan, and Lush V-Neck tees.

What to Know About the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

Let’s chat about the details…

What: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017!

Why: This sale is totally unique! Compared to most sales featuring end of season markdowns, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale features all BRAND NEW pieces. I mean, new items on sale – when does that ever happen?! Although you and I both aren’t ready for Fall (please be Summer forever!), my wallet thanks me for purchasing the essentials during this sale. I typically save up throughout the Summer, then invest in sweaters, shoes, and make up kits during this sale.

When: Early Access is July 13-20, 2017 for Nordstrom debit and credit card holders (click here to apply), but the sale is open to everyone July 21 through August 6th. Prices go back up to regular retailĀ on August 7th.

Where: You can shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in store or online and there are perks to both. The Nordstrom website will feature more options/sizes and you can avoid the Black Friday-like craziness that ensues in stores. Plus, you can shop all hours of the day or night. And Nordstrom’s return policy is FABULOUS (free shipping and returns), so you don’t need to worry about something not fitting correctly.

On the flip side, I spoke with sales associates at my local Nordstrom and they let me know that you can make an appointment for the first day of the sale to avoid the craziness. Just grab a brochure, let your sales associate know what pieces you’d like set aside, and show up at your appointment time and she will have placed all of your items in a dressing room. Nordstrom’s customer service really is bar-none.
