The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 catalog was just released and I want to share my favorites with you before the sale opens to cardmembers on July 12th. It truly is the BEST Sale of the year! Also I am giving away TWO $100 Nordstrom gift cards!

*Bookmark this post because this is where I will update with my sale roundup**

A quick recap of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Items in the sale are NEW fall merchandise and marked down up to 40% off. Prices go back up after the sale is over. I outlined my top 10 best buys in the sale every year in this post. This sale saves my family so much money each year on things we would buy anyway.

The sale opens early to Nordstrom cardholders on July 12th (I think it’s worth it to get a credit card even if you aren’t a credit card person because so much sells out during this early access period). Apply here.

The sale opens to the public on July 20th. Stores open at 10am (but check your local store just to be sure). You can shop online usually around 12 am PT (but it’s different every year so don’t quote me!). Right now if you click on the items in the catalog it will say “sold out” but that will change sometime early on the morning of the 20th.

Favorites in the Sale Catalog

The jeans and the blazers, oh my! I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these J.Crew coats. The pink Dover blazer will be $131 (reg. $198) and Olga Topcoat will be $184.90 ($278 after sale). Both come in several colors! Also how amazing is this lavender wrap coat that will also come in gray! The Kut from the Kloth jeans on the right are my sister’s favorite jeans under $100. ($59 in the sale!). She got some last year and said they were an AH-mazing fit. Also, these Frame jeans in the catalog are so so cute!

The shoes in the sale every year are always a great purchase. They will have everything from tennis shoes to heels, boots and booties. These tan Sperry boots would be perfect for a college age girl at 109.90 (reg. 184.95).  The two black boots in this picture are Hunter and I love how they look fancier than the normal Hunter boots. The short ones will be $99.90 (reg. $155) and the tall boots will be $114.90 (reg. $175).The gray and red boots are both Blondo and are waterproof! I love my Blondo booties from a few years back. They come in multiple colors, too.

There are so many wonderful candle fragrance and candle options in the sale and I love these because in many cases, they come in sets, like these. They are perfect to buy now and save for upcoming birthdays, hostess gifts, and for the holidays. The Diptyque set comes with five different scents marked down to $55 (reg. $75). The NEST diffuser set is a fantastic hostess gift and they smell divine. The set of three Voluspa candles is great value under $30 (reg. $48). The Jo Malone Set includes three full-sized Jo Malone candles and is still under $100.

Barefoot Dreams is another very popular brand that always includes a few products in the Anniversary Sale. I know people that buy them for all the women in their family for Christmas gifts – so thoughtful! These go so quickly, so definitely put this in your cart first thing! It is so cozy and will be over 35% off in the sale!

Beauty products are also great to stock up on during the sale. Pick up this Charlotte Tillbury Set for yourself (I have friends who swear by the magic cream) and save this MAC eyeshadow palette to gift your teenage daughter for Christmas, a $200 value available for $44.50. This brush set is also a great value. The quality of these brushes is amazing and they will last you for many years to come. Kiehl’s will also offer the liter size of their bath products for under $40 (reg.$55). This is also the time to invest in the Personal Microdermabrasion (PMD) or the Microneedling Tool! Read about how I use these two tools in my Skincare Scoop Series.

  1. Sadly, the 4 things I looked at (purse, luggage, Olga topcoat and Barefoot Dreams) ALL sold out. Always love your “picks!”

    1. The sale hasn’t started yet! They release the catalog in advance. Early access for cardmembers starts July 12th. The sale opens to everyone else July 20th. Everything will say “sold out” until Early Access. Sorry for the confusion!
