For the last few days, bloggers have probably been blowing up your social media feeds about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. And I’m probably the only blogger who did NOT stay up and write a blog post when the #NSale went live at 2 A.M. #sorrynotsorry
But in all honesty, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a really great sale because it’s one of the only sales where clothes go on sale BEFORE they are in season. Last year was my first year that I strategically took advantage of the #NSale, and here are 3 pieces of advice that you should consider:
- This is the time to invest in the big-ticket purchases that you know you will get tons of use out of. For example, I know that I need a brown pair of over the knee boots for fall and a pair or two of new booties. I will end up buying them eventually, so I might as well get them for cheaper!
- Buy first; return later. When in doubt, go ahead and “add to cart”. So many of the hot ticket items will sell out fast. My biggest regret last year was not shopping with the mindset of “I can always return it”.
- Be smart and plan ahead for Christmas shopping. Most everything in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is geared towards fall and winter, so it would be totally appropriate to knock out some of your Christmas gifts early.
Shopping at the brick and mortar store is a NIGHTMARE during this time of year. I would highly recommend solely online shopping. I have included my favorite picks below!
