2019 Guide to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

If you are a Nordstrom cardholder with Icon or Ambassador status, you can now shop the #NSale online. All other cardholders can shop in stores and online tomorrow, Friday 7/12/19 at 12:30 PM EST. You will need to be signed into your Nordstrom account to shop.

Also, I’d love for you to join my #NSale Facebook Group for more info on sizing, fit, comfort, restocks… and all things #NSALE!

I can’t wait to show you what I found and what I recommend if you’re wanting to shop the #NSale this year, so here are some quick links if you want to skip over the intro and get right to the nitty gritty. (A few of these “jump links” aren’t working… I’m trying to figure it out and get it fixed!)

If you’re new to the #NSale, here’s a quick recap.

What Is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

The #NSale introduces NEW fall 2019 styles at a deeply reduced introductory prices so you can get a head start on your fall wardrobe AND make the most of your budget. Nordstrom card holders can shop during the Early Access Period (July 12-18), and the sale opens to the public on July 19. Prices go back up on August 5th.

What To Buy at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale:

This it the time to think about investment pieces and big ticket items (boots, coats, watches, handbags…) as well as some lower priced trendy items to spice up your fall wardrobe. You’ll get to enjoy them for the whole season, AND you get them at a great price.

#NSale Shopping Tips:

Once the sales goes online, popular items sell out fast — like within hours. I recommend purchasing your most desired items first, and don’t wait to check out. Shipping is free, so you can place multiple orders without penalty. If in doubt on sizing, order both sizes and return the one you don’t want. Items that usually sell out quickly are UGG slippers, Barefoot Dreams cardigans, Tory Burch shoes and handbags, Kendra Scott jewelry, Hunter boots, and Zella leggings, to name a few.

You can access my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale coverage at any time by clicking the #NSALE 2019 link at the top of my website. As always, when you shop through my links, it helps support my business (at no cost to you) so thank you!

Now let’s get to it!!!

2019 Guide to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I’m trying to make this post as comprehensive as possible by covering all the different categories, while also keeping it highly curated and only sharing my absolute favorite items in each category. I have sizing notes on items I’ve tried, but I will also be posting a huge try on haul from my #NSale shopping adventures tomorrow (Friday) so stay tuned for that!

FYI, I can’t choose the color of the items shown in the shopping widgets below, so I’m not always showing my favorite. Click through to see more color options. I tried to keep each widget to one page, but if you’re on your phone or tablet, you will have to use the arrow to the right to scroll.

I didn’t try many, but this Eileen Fisher shift is the very definition of polished but casual. Also loving it with my Vince Camuto sandals.

  1. Thank you for all of your hard work Jolynne! I get so many great ideas from you and love your style! I especially enjoy the 25 days of fashion each season that you do with Cyndi!

  2. I’m watching the clock and have items ready to purchase (keeping my fingers crossed they’ll still be available!). Thanks for all your hard work! You’ve made shopping the sale so much easier!

  3. Great and thorough post! No room in the budget at the moment, but if there were, would shop for classic staple pieces.

  4. Thank you for the great research!  Sadly, many of the things on my wish list are already sold out in my size.  I did get a North Face winter jacket and Ugg slippers for my son though – thanks for the link to the slippers.

  5. I have my heart set on the Tory Burch sunglasses, the A.G. Harper slim straight leg jeans & the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk lip kit (for a start LOL) & I just added the faux fur jacket. You have phenomenal taste & I love everything you picked out! Thank you for your hard work & for doing such a great job for us, Jo-Lynne! XXOO

  6. Thanks for doing the giveaway! I’ll be stocking up on basics, a little beauty and splurging on some denim – you’ve converted me!

  7. Wow you found some great finds… so exciting ( although I’m in no rush to see the leaves change yet lol)… we are going to get some rain today and maybe tomorrow but then back to hot sunny skies 🤗… 

  8. Love the way you organized all your picks! So easy to scroll through and concentrate on what I’m interested in! Thanks!!

  9. This is my first Nsale. Equipped with a new Nordstrom card and all of the knowledge you’ve shared. Thanks so much!

  10. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into these wonderful posts!  I look forward to this every year.  You make shopping the sale so much  easier!!

  11. Wow! Thanks for all your hard work on this shopping guide. Very informative. I am most interested in AG jeans. And, of course, shoes! Always shoes! 😂

  12. I am going to be shopping for booties if I win the Nordstrom gift card. I have a lot of inspiration thanks to your blog! Never miss a day reading it. Thank you for all you do to keep us ladies stylish

  13. Excited for the sale! Concentrating on denim, sweaters, and booties! Thanks for all your hard work previewing the sale for us! 

    1. Boo. 🙁 Watch for restocks. I predict a lot of returns – more than previous years. I think people bought up a lot more than they intend to keep, and also accidentally placed double orders thinking their first ones didn’t go through.

  14. I’m shopping for a few things I’ve had in my Nordstrom wish list! Some sandals, including ECCO, and also a pair on sale (I don’t want to say exactly as I don’t want anyone to nab them before I can), also a cute belt I’ve been crushing on. I would love a handbag on sale, like Tory Burch, but we’ll see if any left, they go fast. I love this sale and have been waiting impatiently for it! Yahh!

  15. Thanks Jo-Lynne for all your hard work! I love all your suggestions and look forward to fall shopping. Enjoy your weekend!
