Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Details:

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, shoes, coats for the whole family, baby gear, beauty tools and, yes, even Christmas gifts! 

When is the sale? 

This year’s Anniversary Sale is taking place August 19-30 with Early Access starting as early as August 4th! The dates have changed but you’ll still be able to shop new arrivals from top brands at a deep discount. We will do the leg work to find the best items on sale so you don’t have to! 

The sale opens with “Early Access” for Nordstrom cardholders on August 4th (ICON), August 7th (Ambassador), August 1oth (Influencer) and August 13th (Insider) and public access opens on August 19! 

Note: many of the *hot* items often sell out during Early Access. Years ago they used to restock when the sale opened to the public but the past two years they really haven’t done that and I doubt they will this year as well. See our list of what to shop first here

How do I shop the sale early? 

Become a Nordstrom card member. The sale opens with “Early Access” for Nordstrom cardholders on August 4th (ICON), August 7th (Ambassador), August 1oth (Influencer) and August 13th (Insider) and public access opens on August 19! 

Note: many of the *hot* items often sell out during Early Access. Years ago they used to restock when the sale opened to the public but the past two years they really haven’t done that and I doubt they will this year as well.

  1. Hi Lee. I love your blog. I have three boys – ages 7-11. I didn’t see any teen/tween boy picks in your Nordstrom sale blog for my oldest. He loves clothes and any recommendations for that age group would be great! Thanks!!!
