Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016: Everything you Need to Know
Roses are Red,
Violets are Blue,
I’ll never love a store,
The way I love you!
As mentioned in this previous post, Nordstrom holds a special place in my heart. Something else I love? A really good sale! Nordstrom + a really good sale = THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE! Easily one of my favorite times of the year.
WHY SHOULD I CARE?
Just trust me, you should!
WHAT IS THIS SALE?
The best sale of the year! Nordstrom offers brand new fall styles at a notable discounted price. So, you can start planning your fall wardrobe for back to school (kids and parents alike!) and spend a lot less than you normally would. Different then a traditional sale, the brand name items start at a discount price, then go back to full price on August 8th. Last year, I was eyeing a pair of Stuart Weitzman boots that were discounted forty percent! You have the option to shop in store or online at NORDSTROM.com
Okay, I can tell you are starting to get excited and are wondering…
WHEN CAN I START SHOPPING?
The Nordstrom Anniversary sale officially starts July 22. However, if you have a Nordstrom credit card or Nordstrom debit card, you can start shopping July 14th. Say what? Yes, you get early access! Don’t have a card, but want to get one? Sign-up here!
WHY DO I WANT EARLY ACCESS?
Remember I mentioned these boots? Well, last year, I did not have early access. When the sale officially started, the color I wanted was SOLD OUT in my size! A lot of people wait all year long for this sale, so items will go quickly. This year, I have my Nordstrom card, so I am ready! If you are considering applying for a Nordstrom credit card or debit card, do so sooner than later. The process can take a few days.
WHAT DO I BUY?
Go into this sale with a plan. Otherwise, it is easy to want a little bit of everything and we all know the majority of us are on a tight budget!
HOW TO PREPARE:
- Look at your closet.
- What items are you excited to wear again this fall? Pull them out of your closet and lay them out.
- Which items do you want to replace? Put these items in a pile to the side.
- Now, looking at what you have laid out, what is your fall wardrobe missing?
- Make a list.
FALL 2016 TRENDS YOU SHOULD INCLUDE:
- Tall boots with a block heel
- Updated ankle boots (block heel and/or a boot that hits right above the average ankle boot height)
- Loafer slides
- Trench coat
- High-low denim
Stay tuned as I share more of my picks from the sale on July 14th. In the meantime, you can get a peek of the sale in the preview catalog and start planning!
