Top 10 Buys in the Anniversary Sale Each Year!
So what are the best things to purchase during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? Think about what you are going to buy anyway as far as back to school, fall/winter clothes, and upcoming birthday gifts. It’s a great time to go ahead and shop holiday gifts as well! You can buy so much of this in the sale and be a savvy shopper by saving up to 40% off!
Popular Winter Coats and Fleeces:
I don’t like paying full-price for these brands, so I love when I find them in the Nordstrom sale! Brands like Barbour sell quickly.
Undergarments for the Whole Family:
Every year my favorite bra is on sale during the sale. (Sizing note: I go up two cup sizes in this bra.) Bras are expensive, but we need them so why not buy on sale? It’s also a great time to stock up on panties. I bought these one size fits all panties last year and I am hooked. They don’t show lines!
Back to School:
Shoes, clothes, socks, coats, and more!
Zella, Alo and Bombas are included in the sale!
The Moonlight Pajamas are so comfy and come in several colors! They come in long and short sets — and make great gifts, too. Teens love them, too.
There are so many great gifts this year in the sale! We will do a full roundup in our complete sale post but check out these:
