I’m so glad you’ve joined my all access #NSale Insiders email list! I hope this helps you navigate this epic sale and find the best deals on the things you need and hope to add to your fall/winter wardrobe!
First things first. If you’re new to this #NSale madness and wondering what all the hype is about, let me fill you in.
WHAT IS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE?
First of all, this is NOT a summer clearance sale.
This is brand new Fall 2019 merchandise, brought out specifically for this sale, and immediately reduced — up to 40% off!
Also included are some perennial favorites that rarely get marked down, and there are always some fabulous beauty exclusives available during this sale as well. Savings are often 30-40% off retail, which is pretty amazing.
This is the perfect time to stock up on quality basics and splurge items you may not find at a discount except at end of season when sizes are already picked over.
DATES TO KNOW
The dates for the 2019 #NSale are July 19 — August 4, 2019, but Early Access for Nordstrom cardholders is July 12 — July 18, 2019.
Here’s the breakdown:
- July 9 – Nordy Club members with Icon status can pre-shop the sale in-store only
- July 10-11 – Nordy Club members with Icon or Ambassador status can pre-shop the sale in-store only
- July 12 – Early Access Begins for all Cardholder levels, in-store and online at 12:30 PM EST
- July 18 – Last Day of Early Access
- July 19 – Anniversary Sale opens to the Public, in-store and online at 12:30 PM EST
- August 4 – Last Day of the Anniversary Sale
If you’re familiar with how this sale has run in past years, you may notice a few things being done differently this year.
First of all, there are THREE pre-shop days!
If you have Ambassador or Icon status, you get to shop in-store before the sale opens online to other card holders. (You can find your status by going to your Nordstrom card account, and on the summary page, it lists your status in the top right-hand corner under the caption The Nordy Club Benefits.)
The other thing that is new this year is Early Access starts at 12:30 PM EST on July 12th, both online and in store.
In past years, the #NSale would open online at 3AM EST but not in store until 10AM. By then, things were already selling out, and the website was crashing. The idea is, by opening the sale at the same time online and in-store, more people will shop in store and the website won’t crash.
I am still going to recommend you shop online for the best selection and to avoid losing out on pieces that sell out quickly. But hopefully their new this strategy works, and the website will be able to sustain the impact of all the #NSale hype this time around.
I love that I can shop the sale a few days ahead of Early Access, so I can report back on quality and fit, share the best deals from the sale, and YOU can avoid the madness and shop from your living room couch!
