Only 3 more sleeps! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access begins on July 12th. The Public sale is scheduled for July 20th – August 5th 2018. The Anniversary sale is one of my FAVORITE sales! I’m on the East Coast, but I am up when it loads pulling shopping away and pulling together my favorites for all of you! Check out our Facebook Group Trendy Momz Style & Chat for live updates as the sale approaches!
How do I get early access the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The key is the card. For the first week of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, you have to be a cardholder to shop. Anyone can browse and see what’s offered, but to check out, you need a card (or a friend with one). The good news is that you can sign up for a card at any time and approval is instant. So if you find something you have to have, take the plunge here. When you are approved, you will get a $40 Nordstrom Note for ANY same-day purchase, so don’t forget to take advantage of that!
Is Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access worth it?
YES! YES! YES! Every year there are styles that are popular and sell out fast (even within the first couple hours)! In 2017, some of the hottest items were Vince Camuto booties, Free People oversized plaid button-downs, Nordstrom Exclusive Nike Flyknit and jumbo beauty products. The sale loads at Midnight, PST and the most dedicated Nordstrom shoppers are ready to go loading up their carts! We are always following the sale live in our Facebook Groups! You should always place an early online order even if you are headed to the store. Often stores don’t have the full selection and I missed out on several items last year waiting for my 9:00 AM appointment!
What will be on sale in the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is really unlike any other sale. MANY of the items offered were made specially for the sale by one of Nordstrom’s partner brands. You will find options for nearly every budget from brands like The North Face, Patagonia, Toms, Madewell, NYDJ + the full range of Nordstrom’s private labels. Last year, the Nordstrom Private Labels like Caslon, Halogen, and Hinge really stole the show with Day 1 sell outs! Barefoot Dreams cardis are also always popular! The items do not load until the sale goes live, so there is no way to pre-shop, but the landing page here should have some updates and sneaks before the sale goes live.
What are the best deals?
We never know until the sale loads, but there are always tons of great deals! Some brands and styles routinely sell out in Early Access. In the past it has been brands like Patagonia, The North Face, Tory Burch, and Ugg. There are also brand specific lines. For example, there is Nordstrom Exclusive Tea Collection line that is released specifically girls in the Anniversary Sale. You can check out our post on last years Nordstrom Exclusive Tea Collection here. If you are buying items that are likely to be popular and unsure of sizing, grab two sizes to try so you don’t miss out on an item due to fit. I always order everything I like and then return what doesn’t work. Nordstrom offers free shipping and returns which is awesome if you don’t have a store nearby!
