In case you’re wondering…
What Is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
First of all, this is NOT a summer clearance sale. This is brand new fall 2023 merchandise, brought out specifically for this sale, and immediately reduced. We’re talking brands like Tory Burch, Stuart Weitzman, Madewell, Vince, Barefoot Dreams, Mother Denim, and more. Savings are usually 30-40% off retail, making this is the best time to stock up on high-quality basics like cashmere, boots, and denim, that will last over multiple years and seasons.
What are the 2023 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dates?
The 2023 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale online preview will go live sometime in late June, with Early Access shopping in store and online beginning on July 11th. Icon cardmembers are the first to shop; they have 24 hours before the next-level of Nordstrom cardholders (the Ambassadors) start shopping on July 12th. Influencers (all cardholders) may shop on July 13th, and public shopping begins on July 17th.
I admit that I’m never in the mood to think about fall fashion in July, but I’m always glad I did when cold weather rolls around. As many of you know from my What I Wore Lately posts, a large portion of my fall/winter wardrobe staples that I wear all season long are items I purchase during the #NSale in the dead of summer.
These Are the 2023 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dates To Know:
Here’s How It Works
Everyone will have the ability to preview all #NSale items online about a week before the sale starts. You will be able to save your favorites to your Wish List, so you can check out faster when it’s your time to shop.
Cardholders get to shop first, so if you don’t have one and you’re a frequent Nordstrom shopper, it’s worth considering, but make the decision that is right for you. While items do sell fast, they often get restocked later in the fall, so there will be more opportunities down the line.
Icon members can start shopping on July 11, Ambassadors on July 12, and all cardholders on July 13. (Follow this link and log-in to find out your status.) You’ll also earn Rewards points while you shop. (Every 2,000 points gets you a $20 Nordstrom Note to use online or in-store at a later date.) The #NSale opens to the public on July 17 and ends for everyone on August 6, 2023.
I already have an appointment at my local store on July 11, and I’ll bring you along with me! I do my best to be a resource for you all, and I like to be on the ground so I can show you what I find and get lots of pictures. That said, I recommend shopping online for the best selection. See more on that below.
How to Prepare for the 2023 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
#1. Sign up for The Nordy Club. As I said above, I highly recommend the credit card as well, if you aren’t opposed to having another card, because the credit card is your ticket to Early Access. But at the very least, sign up for The Nordy Club so you can earn rewards as you shop.
#2. Schedule a Personal Double Points Day during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Then be sure to make your biggest purchases that day to maximize your rewards points earning potential!
#3. Join my JLS Insiders Facebook Group. This is where I share of-the-moment information, restocks, etc. Plus, you have access to me and other members who are shopping the sale to give you insights into fit and sizing.
If you aren’t on Facebook, never fear! I will still be posting plenty of #NSale coverage here on the blog. See #4.
#4. Sign up for my #NSale email list. This way you’ll be the first to know when my #NSale posts go live on the blog. I’ll be posting my #NSale Preview Early Favorites as soon as the preview period starts on June 29, and of course, I’ll be doing all my usual #NSale coverage once the live shopping starts.
I’m already familiar with their brands and pricing structure, so my goal is to help you navigate the #NSale without getting overwhelmed. I know this sale well, and I can let you know what the truly good deals are and what not to miss out on. I really try to be a resource for you all during this sale, so if there’s anything I can do to help make it easier for you, let me know.
#5. Make a shopping list, and have a plan to shop the most popular items first. This is the time to go through your fall/winter wardrobe — and summer too, because there are always some great wear now-and-later pieces that are part of the sale — and make a list of things you need or want to add to your closet.
What’s New This Year
- Shorter Early Access Phases: Early Access to allow for a longer Public Sale and more access
- More to come, when I get more info!
How to Shop the #NSale
#1. Shop early and often. Popular items sell out quickly, and they can disappear from your cart while you’re making up your mind. I always recommend checking out multiple times. If you KNOW you want something, purchase that first. Then go back and take your time and start sorting through the rest.
#2. Shop online and choose the Contactless Curbside Pickup option. This is the best way to avoid the chaos and crowds AND get the things you want immediately.
If you have a store that’s local to you, you can place and order and pick it up same day. Of course, not all stores carry the full #NSale inventory, so you may have to wait for some items to ship.
#3. Buy 2 sizes. If ever in doubt, buy two sizes and return the one that doesn’t work for you. I promise you, you will thank me later for this advice. The hottest items will sell out within the first few hours (no joke), and if you wait to get your order, find out you need a different size, and go to re-order, it may not be available.
#4. Pay for expedited shipping. In recent years, this sale has become so popular that the computers can’t always keep up with how fast the inventory is moving, and sometimes people will check out and then later on receive an email that items from their order were canceled.
So, if there are any items you really want and are worried that they’ll sell out before your order is processed, pay for the next day or two-day shipping. Your order will get processed more quickly, and it is less likely to get canceled.
Obviously, this cuts into your savings, but if it’s a high ticket item, or you have a few things in your cart, it may be worth paying a little bit more to ensure you get your order.
#5. Finally, have fun! You guys, this is a sale. My best advice is to look at it like a game.
You may not get all the pieces you want, and yes, those with higher cardholder statuses get first dibs… whether or not you agree with that, it is what it is. There will be more sales, more clothes, more boots, more bargains.
Go in with a positive attitude, have fun with it, and at the end of the day, you may walk away with a few great deals on new fall items.
And remember, a lot of #NSale items get restocked during the fall season as people make returns, and they do go on sale again eventually, so if you miss out on something you really want, just keep an eye on it you may get lucky later on!

If I signed up for the #NSale email list last year, do I need to sign up again for this years sale?
No, you should be all set!
Did they happen to include Canadian dates ours are often different unless we shop the US sites and pay duties ugh!
I didn’t see anything about the Canadian dates.
Cue the music 🎶It’s the most wonderful time of the year🎶 Yes, I’m THAT person! My daughter, daughter in law, and I shop the sale every year, and we have so much fun! I’m able to complete their birthday and Christmas gift shopping early, and they’re never disappointed!I had never heard of it (there are no Nordstrom stores in Louisiana) until I began following you. Your coverage is always spot-on. We are looking forward to it again this year.
Awesome! I am so glad it’s helpful.
I’m in Louisiana! And it’s so sad that we do not have a Nordstrom! 😢
Velvet pants, blazers – Holidays only???
No, you can wear them now. 🙂 They’re more winter than holiday. I wouldn’t wear much past Valentine’s Day, tho. I kept out my velvet ankle flares, hoping to wear sometime soon!
I’m playing catch up on all your emails from the past week because I got really sick with something like the flu. Ugh! But! I was reading some of this to my husband (because I had an epiphany this morning while getting ready for church lol) and he said “oh, that’s great timing, I’ll be getting my summer bonus around that time!” I swooned! 😂😍
Oh, and feel better soon!
