What to Buy at the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

It’s time for one of the biggest sales of the year! Not to be confused with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which is coming up in July, the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is a clearance sale.

There are lots of good deals on spring and winter items as they clear the racks for new summer styles, but inventory does move fast so don’t wait around to check out.

This gorgeous Vince sweater is 60% off. (I’m crying in my coffee because it’s sold out in my size, but all other sizes are currently available.) This would make a great Father’s Day gift, and this classic LBD is 75% off!

These and these make good casual closed-toe options for those who don’t like sandals, and these classic bags rarely go on sale. Oh, and these Vince Camuto slides and these rag & bone sneakers are 40% off! Also, my Geraldine slides are marked down to $55. I rounded up all of those and more of my top picks below.

  1. Well, as I was going through the shopping widgets, I couldn’t get too excited about the winter things…so happy that warm weather is here. But I did cave on the Barefoot Dreams cardigan in Espresso. I decided that when fall rolled around, I would regret not getting it. It really is a pretty color and a great price. And there are some really nice sandals shown, but I’ve been on a Birk kick lately, AND I just ordered my second pair of P448 slides, so no more sandals right now for me. 😉

    1. I know, I cannot get excited about winter things, but if that Vince sweater comes back in a small, I’m snagging it! I loved it when I tried it early in the spring but cannot do the full retail. And even it went 40%, I was on the fence, but at 60% off, I cannot deny it. 🙂

      Did you mean to say P448 slides? Do they make slides?

  2. Re:your email question. I’d prefer a quick heads-up email on sales like this. I would most definitely not consider it ‘spamming’ coming from you!
    If you were just going to buy one pair, would you go with the Marc Fisher or Sam Edelman slides above? Which are more comfortable?

  3. I, too, would prefer a “heads up” email on sales like this or anything else you feel like is a little more urgent. I trust you and unlike some other bloggers, you have never come across as pushy.
    I was excited about Vince slides, because his footwear is so soft and comfy. However, the slides are Vince Camuto, and I have never bought any of his footwear. My feet are so picky.
    The Barefoot Dreams cardigan is tempting, but I have 2 and probably wouldn’t reach for it.
    Thank you for the roundup. It’s very helpful.

    1. Ooops. Sorry about that. I was thinking they are Vince, because Vince had a similar pair last year. I fixed the post. Vince Camuto does a good shoe, but it is definitely not on par with Vince.

  4. I agree when there’s a big sale like this, I certainly appreciate knowing right away. Stuff goes fast at lower prices so helpful to have a chance at it!

  5. Love the post, Jolynne- a quick question though about the pic with the straw bag – I love the bag and am interested in finding one. Is this bag an old one or is it from the sale?

  6. Great roundup! The Longchamp le pliage bags make a great high school graduation gift. It seems like every girl goes to college with one.

  7. Always nice to have early heads up on sales. 🙂
    Hard to think of buying sweaters. But, like one lady said by Fall we may wish we had. :). I just want to think Summer. It was a very long Winter.
