Hooray! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally open to everyone! Public access starts today and we went through every single item — and we mean every.single.item! — to find the very best, in-stock items for our DoSayGive readers, all separated by category.

Got my eyes on: This Theory coat! So pretty!
Things to note: Barefoot Dreams are so popular and sell out early.
Women’s Pajamas and Undergarments:
New to the sale: Not pictured but I don’t remember Sorel being the sale in recent years.
On my wish list: These Vince crewnecks.
New to the sale: This Frame sweatshirt will be so cute in the fall.
Women’s Plus Sizes:
Women’s Pants and Jeans:
On my wish list: No one is taking away my skinny jeans! So many great ones but if you are looking for under $50 try the Wit & Widsom line.
Hit from last year: These black pants by Spanx! LOVE Mine!
New to sale: The Food 52 apron for serious cooks. Boll & Branch Organic sheets. Note the organic. Dyson! You can find better deals on cheaper models other places but if you want a high end cordless Dyson this might be for you!
On my wish list: These cubic zirconia studs are great for everyday or travel. Several sizes shapes.
New to the sale: The Frame crossbody bags are so cute and come in three colors.
One more: Converse high tops!
Things to Note:These stretch, quick-drying johnnie-O shorts come in three great colors.
Good value: All the Jack Black pumps and deoderant duo in the sale are good values! Usually only have them during the NSale and holiday. And not pictured: The Kiehl’s all over body and hair wash pump!
*What You Need to Know About The 2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!*
What’s the big deal about the sale?
The Anniversary Sale is unique because during the sale Nordstrom marks down NEW merchandise for fall and winter up to 40% off. All of the prices go back up at the end of the sale. Longtime shoppers of the sale will buy clothing, sneakers, bras, coats for the whole family, baby gear, beauty tools and, yes, even Christmas gifts. DoSayGive readers tend to steer away from the trendy things and to more of the staples they are going to buy anyway – but this way they get ON SALE!
When is the sale?
Public Access is July 28 – August 8. Nordstrom cardholders get early access.
When Can I Shop?
July 6: Sale Preview Available. Everyone can preview!
July 12: Early Access for Icon Cardholder Status
July 14: Early Access for Ambassadors Cardholder Status
July 16: Early Access for Influencer Cardholder Status
July 28: Sale opens to the public at 3am EST!
If you want to shop the sale early, you can become a cardholder here.
How do I know what level I am?
Log in to your “Nordy Club” (what they call cardholders) on a desktop or phone. Click on “Account” (or the three lines on mobile) then “Nordy Club” and you can see your level. You can also download the Nordstrom app and log in there.
What time can I shop?
Depending on your access level, you can start shopping online at 3:00 am ET /12:00 am PT. Check your local store for store hours.
What else do I need to know?
Shop as early in the sale for the best selection. Popular items often sell out quickly. Items are rarely restocked and I doubt they will be this year with supply chain issues affecting so many industries.
What are the best things to get in the sale?
As always we do the leg work to find the best items on sale so you don’t have to spend a lot of time browsing the thousands of items. Sign up to get our Nordstrom sale posts here.
