smart shopping tips for nordstrom anniversary sale!

Tory Burch Handbag and gray jeans with gold & tricks for shopping the nordstrom anniversary sale!

It’s game time guys. This is the biggest sale of the year for Nordstrom & for good reason. MAJORLY good stuff on sale. As a blogger I’ve learned some really good tricks to shop this sale smart!

what is the nordstrom anniversary sale?

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale happens once a year. It’s practically the coolest sale ever (except for Amazon prime day which is also amazing!) The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is a sale in reverse. The items you’ll want for fall and winter go on sale at first, and then at the end of the sale period they go back to full price! This is a major sale with hot ticket items that sell out quickly. It’s the perfect time to refresh your wardrobe, spruce up your home and even think about holiday gifts for friends & family.

what are the sale key dates?

July 11, Level 4 Nordstrom cardmembers get to pre-shop the sale in stores only.
July 12-19, all cardmembers get to shop Early Access in stores and online.
July 20-Aug 5, Nordstrom biggest sale of the year opens to the public.
August 6 – All prices go back to full price!

what’s on sale?

Everything. You name it and you name the department! Big brands that almost never go on sale are included! Some are marked down around 40%. Think Kendra Scott, Barefoot Dreams, Rag and Bone, AG Jeans and more! Classic items you need all year round, home items, gifts for people, TONS of amazing shoes & so much more! It covers children, mens – everyone!

Here is the catalog that was released with a SMALL selection of what’s about to go on sale. Believe me, this is NOT all of it! So much more will be made available 7/12 3am EST. I’m here to help you discover all the best items available! In meantime, look at these items and get ready to SHOP early because things go out of stock fast! I’ll be doing my very best to update you as they restock the hot items!

a personal note from me

This blog has changed my life and brings me more joy than I ever dreamed. But it is a business and I spent a ton of time trying to provide the best content possible for you guys!  It’s a journey and business that has filled a hole I didn’t know needed filling. But please note:

I do receive a commission on sales you purchase via links on my blog.

However, you have to use the link DIRECTLY from my blog otherwise I don’t get the commission.

Example: Say I’m blogger A. You read my review of an item and want to buy it. But you wait to buy it until later. During that time you go to Blogger B. If you buy the product from their website then they get the commission. The same is true if you leave my website and go to, say You know how products magically appear that you were just looking at? Kind of creepy, right? If you click the product from, then CNN gets the commission.

So my personal plea is that if you enjoy my blog, please come back to my blog and use the links I provide when making any purchase during the sale. It doesn’t even matter what you buy! This small commission supports my blogging bills.

BOOKMARK my website if that helps you to come back for shopping links!

Follow me on the LikeToKnowIt app on Instagram and use links I embed there.

Use links from my emails, facebook, or direct messages!

Also, please email me at [email protected]  or send me a message via social media if you need help with stuff. I’m here to help! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

xxx, kelly
