10 Best Buys Every Year

Every year there are things that are worth buying and things that are not. Below are 10 things that year after year I find are worth purchasing in the sale. Most of them are things I am going to buy anyway so why not purchase for up to 40% off? 

1. Athletic  Shoes  – This year Nike, Adidas, and Asics are included in the sale! Women’s, Men’s and Children’s shoes are great to shop in the sale. 

2. Designer Jeans – You don’t want to miss out on the incredible prices on the best denim brands. Paige, FRAME,  and Citizen of Humanity just to name a few. Loving these Rag & Bone jeans for fall. Tip: order a few sizes and send back what doesn’t work to avoid missing a great deal. 

3. Popular Winter Coats and Fleeces – I don’t like paying full-price for these brands so love when I find them in the Nordstrom sale! Brands like Barbour and Patagonia usually sell quickly. This quilted coat is back and this down parka will surely sell out fast. The North Face has lots of coats for children this year and Patagonia will be in the sale as well.  

4. High End Boots/Booties and Shoes – This year these Hunter booties and these leopard Hunter short boots will sell out quickly. Brands like Vine go quickly such as these boots

5. High-End Beauty Tools – So many great ones this year! T3 Hair Dryers and Curling Irons. This Drybar straightening set. New this year: this T3 Brush Set. Think holiday gifts! 

6. Fall Sweaters – The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale always has great on-trend and investment sweaters. Yes, it’s odd to shop for fall clothes in July but so worth it! I get so much wear out of the tops and sweaters I buy in the sale each year. Look at lines like Vince and Nordstrom Signature cashmere for high end. This Free People sweater will be popular! Love this easy Halogen throw-on cashmere sweater

7. Handbags and Accessories – I love this Tory Burch croc crossbody and this wallet in the sale this year! They also included a new black chain crossbody in the sale! This Michele watch would make a fabulous Christmas gift!

8. Hair and Makeup Value Sets The special edition value sets that are part of the sale really are always an amazing value. Like this Bobbi Brown lip set (great holiday gift!) or this MAC eye set. This Living Proof set and this Oribe set will likely sell out fast. And yay, the Olaplex Shampoo I like is included in an awesome value set. 

9. Barefoot Dreams – My favorite cardigan that I even wear in the summer in my cold house is part of the sale! It usually sells out during Early Access so this is an item to shop early if you want one. They make a great gift for just about any female. As does the cozy throw which also sells out!

10. High-End Undergarments and Loungewear – Every year my favorite bra ever is on sale during the sale. (Note: I am small chested and go up two cup sizes on this bra.) Bras are expensive, but we need them so why not buy on sale up to 40% off? 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! Last year I picked up these Nordstrom brand pajamas and they have become some of my favorites! They come in a long set and short set. I will definitely pick up another pair and maybe a few to gift as well!

We are going to put all our Nordstrom picks from the sale in this post. Bookmark so you can refer back when the sale begins!

Note: The photos above are items I purchased during last year’s Nordstrom sale to give you an idea of what will be available this year!

    1. Yes it is! I didn’t realize it why everyone was making a big deal about it until about three years ago. Then I “got” it! Truly has saved us so much money in things we would buy anyway!

    1. Me too! Sale strategy is so much fun for me. I’ve perfected it over the years and love sharing it with my readers!

  1. I love the Zella leggings! And I always stock up on bras and panties, work clothes for my husband and back to school shoes for my kids. I look forward to seeing what you recommend!

  2. What time does store open? And what time can you start shopping online? All on July 12 of course! 🙂

  3. I’m assuming you are Icon or Ambassador level and will be able to post your recommendations by Thursday, July 11…love your recommendations, they totally drive my shopping habits 🙂

  4. I can’t waiting to hear from nordstroms about the Anne sale that I’ve attended for 20 years & finally went online to find out the sale started a week or so ago. Very disappointed.
