Break open your piggy bank! Nordstrom's 2018 Anniversary sale is the retailer's biggest and best of the year. It kicks off Friday, July 20 and runs through Monday, Aug. 6. That translates to two weeks of deep discounts on higher end fashions.
While the sale officially starts next Friday, Nordstrom card holders can enjoy early access to the sale on Thursday, July 12. That's certainly a perk. If you are a cardmember, you can shop early. So have it it!
What's special about this sale is that it isn't a seasonal blowout or a close out designed to clear out old summer inventory to make room for new fall and winter items. Rather, it's brand new styles offered at super sale prices for a limited time. No, that's not a typo. No, we're not kidding. Yes, you should be prepared to shop your face off!
Fashionable pieces from brands like Topshop, Alice & Olivia, Rag & Bone, MCM, Theory, Nike, and Alo Yago, along with in-house brands such Treasure & Bond, Halogen, 1901, and Zella, are part of the sale.
You can shop for clothes, shoes, accessories, household items, and beauty products.
Basically, you can plan ahead and build your fall wardrobe without wiping out your fashion slush fund.
Nordstrom also suggests making use of its Buy Online & Pick Up In Store service. You can shop online and head to your local Nord location and pick it up an hour later. Because #convenience.
