Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicked off today, Friday, July 12th. Now the reason why the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is always such a big deal is that it’s a sale for brand NEW inventory and NEW trends for the upcoming season: Fall & Winter.
These are NEW styles that are just hitting Nordstrom and are discounted heavily. I know it can be hard trying to shop for Fall & Winter when it’s hot outside. But if you play your cards right you can score coats, boots, and sweaters for amazing deals!
I have scoured the entire Nordstrom site for the best styles and recommended pieces. Quite a few of these pieces I already own myself. I am also breaking down the key dates of the Nordstrom sale along with answering the questions that you sent in!
PS. Make sure to bookmark this post so you can come back and shop it later!

THIS POST HAS BEEN UPDATED TO REFLECT THE SOLD-OUT ITEMS
Here are a few of the questions you submitted on Instagram:
Do I really think the Nordstrom Sale is worth it?
I think its all about how you shop the Nordstrom Sale. This is a sale that has great discounts on Fall and Winter styles. I like to invest in pieces that tend to have a high price point that I probably wouldn’t buy full price. Buy key pieces that will get a ton of wear for Fall and Winter. Be strategic about what you are buying for your closet. You do not need every color or style. Avoid seasonal items.
I focus on coats that are normally $259 are under $160 and OTK Boots that retail for $239 are now on sale for $159. Blazers that are over $100 and are now only $60 are great finds. This is also a good time to stock up on blouses and sweaters – some of which are going for $25!
How I shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
I shop the Nordstrom Sale two ways –
- By Brand: I love sticking to brands I know fit me well and are good quality. Brands like: Halogen, Eliza J, Calson etc. I also keep an eye out for Brands that don’t normally go on sale or have a really good discount: Cole Hann, Vince, Tory Burch
- By Styles: Coat, Sweaters, Jacket, Shoes, Work Wear pieces – I love to find the discount on bigger ticket items like coats, boots, and blazers. A lot of styles that I may not pay over $100 are so severely discounted during the Sale that its too good to pass up.
What Staple Closet Pieces I am recommending?
The over-the-knee Marc Fisher boot and the Tory Burch Boots are classic for Fall and Winter. This is about the only time you can get them at a great price. These Tory Burch boots are on sale for under $300 and they normally retail for almost $500!
Can You Recommend the Work Wear Pieces to Shop for Fall?
I love to find workpieces for Fall. I am always on the hunt for a good blazer, blouses and skirts.
I NEED this plaid tweed blazer. It comes with a matching skirt! I also love this red and white printed blazer from TopShop. It’s on sale for $69, it will go back to $110 after the sale so make sure to scoop it up now!
Styles I Already Own and would Invest in for Fall:
Rain Jackets – Living in the PNW investing in rain gear is key. I love this plaid print raincoat trench. It reminds me of the red one I have. The print on it is great and i love the more neutral color tone.
Rain Boots – Also, my FAVORITE rainboots by Hunter Boots are on sale! Hunter Boots rarely ever go on sale. They typically are always $150 for the tall boots. But they are currently $99 during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I am eyeing the black ones!
Blazers – I am a huge fan of blazers for work. They are so easy to pair with jeans, skirts and nice trousers. They are a piece that gets a lot of wear and can be expensive. I use the sale to give my work wardrobe a bit of a refresh. I love finding statement blazers like this plaid option or this tweed blazer.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Tips – items sell out very quickly with this sale! If you can shop it – pull the trigger because it will disappear from your cart FAST. I have a whole page dedicated to the #NSALE. I will be updating this page with the new sale additions and when items sell-out. Make sure to check back for more styles when the sale opens to the public on July 19th!
