The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is almost here! It truly is the biggest and best sale of the year! Why? Because while most store sales mean end of season savings on older merchandise with limits on styles and sizes, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale allows you to save huge on brand new merchandise that has just arrived for fall. While it might be hard to think of the fall season in July, I highly encourage you to think about what you might need in your wardrobe. Staple pieces like boots, bags, jackets, and dresses are just some of the items to consider.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale takes place from July 22 – August 7, 2016. If you have a Nordstrom Card, early access starts July 14. Since this sale is so huge, the best products will sell out fast so definitely consider shopping early. Leading up to the sale, I will be posting my tops picks! In the meantime, here are some tips for getting prepared to take advantage of this sale!
Take inventory of what you have for the fall season. Trends aside, look to see how you can fill your closet with staple items and start making a list. My top categories to consider here would be boots and denim. Everything from Hunter rain boots to Frye over the knee boots are great investments that will stay in your wardrobe for years to come. We all know it is easy to spend a small fortune on denim. Rag & Bone is by far my favorite luxury denim line but with a price tag close to $3oo a pair, I will only buy them on sale. What is your favorite denim? Now is the time to weed through and add to it!
If you have had your eye on a handbag, a pair of sunglasses or piece of jewelry now is the time to pull the plug. Think about what items you have been coveting. You will be hard pressed to find them on sale anywhere else at any time of year so treat yourself to it now!
THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX
Don’t limit the thought process to clothes or yourself! Consider stocking up on candles for hostess gifts, look for pillow or throw blankets for your home, and fill up on your favorite beauty products. Think back to school! Even think Christmas! It is never too early to think about gift giving and how great would it be to a get a head start!
Do not wait until the day the sale launches to start shopping. Get on-line now and start saving the items you want under your wish list. When the sale begins, your list of item wants will be organized in one spot for easy access and purchasing.
Thanks for stopping by! More to come this week on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale including my top picks!
