Women’s Clothing

So many cute things! I’ve picked out my absolute favorites here that I know DoSayGive readers will love, too. And I’ll be heading back to the store later this morning for a full try on session and will be posting those pics on my Instastories as I go.


This Madewell blue and white striped blouse (under $50 during sale) has a the longer back will be great to transition into fall and eventually layer with one of the cardigans mentioned below. I also love this floral, flowy top from AG. If you like a good lace top, this Hinge blouse is so pretty. Oh and this statement blue top with lace neck will be so elegant with dark wash jeans or a cream pencil skirt!


Sell out risks include the DL 1961 Florence Instasculpt for 40% off, the AG jeans skinny jeans ($149 but $225 after the sale) and these Paige jeans are probably my favorite jeans ever. If you want to go for the more trendy jean look this fall, get these FRAME jeans.

Last year my sister liked the fit of the Kut from the Kloth brand better than the designer jeans. These Madewell button jeans are super cute!



Barbour coats are back! For both men and women and will sell out. I wear my short Barbour coat like this one ALL THE TIME in the winter. Love windbreakers like this pale PINK one. A great Christmas gift, too!

Another sell-out risk: North Face and Patagonia puffer jackets. Love this white one!

J.Crew has so many coats in the sale – including this classic coat in the popular marigold color that we’ve seen so many celebs wear lately.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale tahari

There are so many chic wrap and belted coats that I love, too. This Tahari coat (above) is so elegant. Also, this Badgley Mishka wrap coat will take any outfit up a notch. And here’s a steal that looks like a splurge: this Topshop camel coat will be a wardrobe staple.


Free people long sleeve tees are in the sale. These Caslon Rounded V- tees are $17.90 ($25 after the sale) and these long sleeve tees are great, too. BP long sleeve and short sleeve tees are a steal – stock up for fall. If you like a higher end tee, Rag & Bone has a high-low white tee in the sale.



The BP cardigan (runs big) and Leith cardigans always do well in the Nordstrom sale. They come is so many pretty colors and are the right price.

Sell-out risk: These super cozy Barefoot Dreams cardigans sold out last year in the smaller sizes during Early Access. (Hooded option here.) I know friends who will buy one for every female in their family for Christmas. I even knew an office manager who bought one for each of her female employees. Smart! This year they have a new style in this CozyChic Cardigan in a pretty pink!

These cozy Thread and Supply pullovers are $58 ($88 after the sale). Teens and college girls LOVE these (and I do, too, with my fave leggings below.) This pink Rebecca Minkoff sweater is oh so pretty.


Leggings & Pants

My favorite leggings ever are on sale for $35.90 (reg. $59). These are perfect for working out or just running errands. Also, the hugely popular and top-rated Spanx moto leggings are $72 ($110 after sale!).

Please don’t miss these adorable Rag & Bone bow pants!


This 1901 blue striped dress is so chic and you can wear now and into fall with boots. Also this similar black dress. I saw this Rebecca Minkoff dress in store ($125 during sale) and HAVE TO HAVE. Perfect for so many fall occasions. Love this black dress from J.Crew.


Pajamas & Intimates

j. crew pajamas sale

The super soft Nordstrom pajama sets are back! In both pants and shorts sets. Also, how much do you love all the J.Crew pajamas? For intimates the pretty In Jonquil brand is 40% off in the sale.

And we can’t forget the best-selling bra that I wear almost everyday: yay, the Natori Feathers bra is part of the sale again. It only goes on sale a few times a year and this is probably the best markdown of them all. (Go up 1-2 cup sizes than you normally wear or even better: order a few sizes and send back what doesn’t work!). And last year I stocked up on these one size fits all Chantelle underwear. These pretty Spanx underwear look great, too.

Sell out risk: Regular Spanx are in the sale! I hate paying full price for Spanx – this is a great deal!

Women’s Shoes and Boots

sam edelman sale nordstrom

I will be doing an entire post on this later today but so far my favorites include everything Tory Burch. These  booties and these mules. Tory Burch riding boots and their signature flats always are a great buy in the Nordstrom sale.

Hunter boots are back, too! Y’all know how much I love Sam Edelman flats. So many cute patterns. These leopard ones and hot pink flats (above) are so cute. Gucci lookalikes here. Studs are obviously in because I am seeing so many.

Speaking of flats, Vince flats sold out fast last year.

Also love these Vince Camuto Booties. And you can always get BP booties for a great price in the sale.

Sell out risk: Rag & Bone booties and these Nikes and these pink Adidas running shoes!


Kendra Scott has some pieces in the sale (#giftidea) and how fun are all the Bauble Bar earrings included in the sale. Love these large statement earrings, too.

I love this Shiraleah brand (below) and love all these scarves! So pretty for fall!

Baby Gear

halo sleep sack sale

Y’all I am SO excited that the Nuna Rava is part of the sale (more than $120 off!) and the Nuna Mixx stroller/car seat combo is a GREAT deal. I did an informal poll on Facebook the other day because I am about to buy Louise a convertible carseat and this carseat got the most votes BY FAR. Also, the City Select Mini Joggers are on sale and this popular infant car seat. Also, this is a great time to buy my favorite swaddling blankets and HALO sleep sacks. So many more deals here.


Children’s Clothing

As I said in this post, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is when I buy all my children a North Face or Patagonia coat. Why not purchase at up to 40%?  I also buy cotton underwear because non-character underwear can be pricey otherwise!

J.Crew has so many cute back to school clothes for boys and girls on sale. My daughter will love this ruffled top.

unicorn onesie sale

Sell-out risk: Unicorn onesies!! My tween girls are obsessed with onesies. They wear when lounging at home and doing homework. Get these for birthday or Christmas gifts for nieces and nephews.

Children’s Shoes

boys shoes nordstrom sale

Boys’ Adidas and Nike running shoes are a great buy and love these Tucker + Tate, too. I am getting my girls these pink Nikes (also come in big kid) and how darling are these silver cat shoes? Also, a great time to buy children’s Ugg boots! Oh and soccer cleats!! Oh and Natives!!

Like I said, I get my most of back to school shopping done in this sale.  I usually order a couple of sizes and send back what doesn’t work. Free shipping and free returns at Nordstrom.

Men’s Clothing and Shoes

Barbour coats are back and will probably sell out during Early Access. The sale is also a great time to buy him North Face or Patagonia jackets.

This style of AG jeans is one of the top-rated men’s jeans on and are often sold out, even during non-sale periods. If you are looking for non-trendy jeans but not “dad” jeans either, these are the ones you want!

Peter Millar has these shirts in the sale and my husband’s favorite  budget-friendly non-iron shirt is included in the sale in many options. AS WELL AS Mizzen and Main which are his favorite pricey performance shirt (and so much better on sale!).

Several good-looking Cole Haans and Ferragamo loafers, too.

Sell out risk: Nikes!

Home and Gifts

nest candle sale

Candles, candles, candles! NEST candles are the perfect gift and these Voluspa sets are great for teacher gifts.

Another great gift: Barefoot Dreams has several throws in the sale!! I think this is the first year Le Creuset has been in the sale and SMEG. Think: wedding and shower gifts!


Beauty Deals

Stay tuned for a full post on beauty deals. But so far my favorites deals in beauty tools are the Glo Pro is $100 off (I have it; love it), the Drybar curling iron set is a GREAT value. This T3 Hair Dryer is an amazing value

Also, the Charlotte Tillbury Glowing Skin palette is SO pretty and $75 ($150 value!)!
