Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access 2019
It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Nordstrom’s! So you can imagine how excited I am then knowing that their biggest yearly sale is just around the corner! Nordstrom recently released the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 Preview Catalog and it is filled with goodies to get excited about! (Note that the preview catalog is just a sample of some great items that will be on sale!)
Because there is a lot of hype with this sale, it is easy to become overwhelmed with it. It is also easy to over shop it. However, I don’t look at this sale as a way to run up my credit card or invest in a whole new wardrobe. Instead, I plan to organize a list for myself so that I can shop responsibly and purposefully.
In order to get ready for the sale, I have put together a few shopping tips that will help you get organized and stay on track with both your needs and your spending:
- Inventory your closet-take inventory of what you need for fall. Make a list and then fill in the holes for your fall wardrobe.
- Plan for down the road-if you are in need of a dress to wear to a wedding or you need a new pair of boots for winter, use this sale to make those purchases!
- Stalk your favorite designers-some of my favorite designers I can only afford on sale, so make sure to see what your favorite designers have decided to reduce!
- Be Exhaustive -this sale is not just limited to clothes and accessories. Look for beauty and home products to be on sale as well.
- Mark Down Item Numbers-if you see items in the catalog that you like, take note of their item numbers. That way they are easily searchable on Norstrom.com once the sale starts.
- Make a Budget. Decide how much you want to earmark for this sale and stick to it! Guarantee your purchases will be more thoughtful and made without guilt!
How to Shop Early Access for #NSALE
The early access sale is only open to Nordstrom card holders. If do not have a card and you would like to shop early and before the general public, you still have time to have apply for a Nordstrom credit OR debit card here . Even if you do not have a Nordstrom card or do not plan on applying for one, team up with a friend or family member who does in order to take advantage of the early access sale.
Why You Should Shop Early Access
What makes this sale so great is that you can get a head start on purchasing all your fall needs at discounted prices. This means you are able to shop brand new arrivals that are immediately reduced for you! 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 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. Even beyond fall needs, think about the things you would rarely buy unless they were on sale. For me that means athletic clothes, designer pieces and home fragrances!

My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Shopping List
As much as I love to exercise, buying athletic clothes never really excites me. Yet I absolutely know that quality pieces are essential to feeling good during and after (no chaffing please!) after a workout. I really look to this sale to invest in quality pieces to get me through the year. Alo is one of the most popular lines that Nordstrom is known to consistently reduce during their sale. I am also a huge fan of Nordstrom’s in house brand Zella. A few of the items that will be on sale can previewed below:
Beauty and Fragrance
Two things I always love to see on sale are candles and beauty products. Rarely does one see either of these categories marked down, so I absolutely take advantage of it on the rare instance they are:
At this point in my life, I am confident with two denim brands that are always a good fit, BLANKNYC and Rag & Bone. When the sale drops on Friday, these brands will be one of the first things I enter in the search engine bar. I know there are a lot of AG fans out there and here are some great price drops on that denim line too:
Other than a pair of shoes here and there, I rarely buy designer pieces at full price. I am patient for the sales. That is why I plan on having a good portion of my budget set aside for designer pieces that I know will stay in my closet for many seasons to come. I will have my eye on L’Agence, Rag & Bone, Tibi and Veronica Beard. A few designer items that will be on sale can be previewed below:
I will be stalking sneakers on sale too. These will be the first ones I will be adding to my cart:
Happy shopping everyone!
