Nordstrom Sale Tips

Fashion

So, I won’t give you the ENTIRE low-down because I am sure you have heard it 200 times by now from other bloggers!

But, what I will say… you HAVE to shop this sale! It’s one of the only times during the year Nordstrom puts high end or really popular brands on sale (North Face, Steve Madden, BP, SO much more!).

I normally use this time to stock up on basics, and splurge on one high-end product (normally shoes). One of the best parts of the sale… you are not getting last seasons reject items! Everything on sale is relevant to now, in trend, and NEW.

Here are my tips for shopping the sale:

Don’t feel like you NEED to get the Nordstrom Credit Card to shop early. This may be an unpopular view, but honestly I don’t have the card and have never had an issue getting what I want at the sale as long as I shop the first day. So many bloggers will be pushing it- don’t feel pressured!

During the early access, save everything you want in your Nordstrom account online. This way, the day of the sale opens to the public all you have to do is click ‘add to cart’!

BUY. ONLINE. Nordstrom’s return policy is so great (free shipping and free returns), just buy online (multiple sizes if you’re unsure) and return what you don’t want! This is the best way to ensure you get what you want.

Don’t count on ‘buy online pick up in store’ during the sale. Last year, there was an item I really wanted, so I bought it for store pick-up, and passed on doing the typical online/ship. Bad call- an hour later I got an email saying the store no longer had it AND by that time it was sold out online. Tragic lol!

That being said, check back often for restocks if you are really dying for something that is showing as out of stock. Things come back quick!

Don’t forget about home goods! The sale is most famous for clothing, but there are some great deals on home decor, textiles, and bedding.

Don’t feel redic getting some Christmas shopping done! I know… it’s July… but hey if you can get Mom a Tory Burch bag for 70% off… it’s worth hanging onto for a few months!

Moral of the story- SHOP ONLINE.

I tend to wake up the morning of the sale, and place an online order. Then, if time allows that day/weekend I will also go into the store to see what there is.

Most of the time once I get to the store, I find an item I bought online and realize I got the wrong size, so I will purchase it again in store. I know- this sounds SO complicated… but when you see these deals… they’re worth the calculations and time spent plotting! Plus, everything is returnable. Shop now, decide later!

Be on the lookout for a post on July 12th when the sale goes live to the public- and I’ll be sharing a post with all my favorite items on July 9th when the early access opens.

Happy shopping!
