Hi!! I’m sure you’ve heard by now, but the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is starting soon! I haven’t shared too much from this sale in previous years, but I took a poll over on Instagram the other day and there was a LARGE amount of people for voted that I should share my picks. So here we are!
First, I want to break down how this sale works, for those who might not be familiar.
The 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will be from August 19–30. Early Access begins August 13th, and prices go up August 31st. Online shopping begins at 9:30am ET/6:30am PT.
Icon level Nordy Club members can shop now! Sale opens to Ambassadors on Friday, August 7th and Influencers on August 10th.
I don’t have a Nordstrom card, so I don’t shop this sale early, like a lot of people do, but I think there are still great sales that you can take advantage of if you’re shopping for some Fall and Winter staple items. This sale doesn’t require a coupon code, which is nice. The anniversary sale products will be categorized on the website, displaying both the discounted price as well as how much it will cost full-price after the sale.
Things sell out FAST, but I’ve read that they re-stock as it goes on. Not sure if that’s true or not so I would say, if you’re wanting to shop, get what you want before it’s gone.
Important dates to remember:
July 24 – Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview Begins
August 4 – Icon Early Access

August 10 – Influencer Early Access

Another thing I wanted to mention is that I’m only sharing here what I think is actually useful in 2020. In previous years, or when the world isn’t in quarantine and dealing with COVID, I would suggest buying items from sales like this that are investment pieces. Investments can be things like new fall knee high boots, a new wool winter coat, an amazing blazer that you’ll have for years. But 2020 has been the weirdest yet, and we unfortunately aren’t going to be living normal lives come Fall, so I’m not going to sit here and try to convince you to buy crap you don’t need.
All of that being said, my Nordstrom picks are all things that are cozy, lounge items, make up, skincare necessities, housewares that are all quarantine-appropriate!
