Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Untitled

I have been scouring the interwebs and stalking my favorite fashion bloggers to find more of the best deals in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  It’s a tough job, friends.  I’ve already shared my must-have items that I buy every year and MY favorites just from browsing the sale, but these are the best finds from those more fashionable than I and some new great deals I stumbled across.

  1. Whish Lavender Essentials Set just $24 + FREE shipping ($62 value) – Comes with a body wash, body butter and shave cream and would make an AMAZING gift.
  2. Whish Body Butter just $15 + FREE shipping ($76 value) – Made with organic ingredients, this would also make a great gift or just an indulgence for yourself.  Such an awesome brand!
  3. Smashbox ‘Photo Op’ Mega Palette just $69 + FREE shipping ($280 value) – Includes 8 shadow trios, 3 blushes and travel-size mascara.  This is a CRAZY good price for this brand!
  4. butter LONDON ‘Coveted Classics Patent Shine’ Set just $45 + FREE shipping ($72 value) – Six polishes at just $7.50 each.  This would be a great set to split up for gifts!
  5. MAC ‘Look In A Box Advanced’ Brush Kit just $52.50 + FREE shipping ($159 value) – Six brushes in a neoprene cosmetics bag.  This would be a great chance to jump into the fancy brush game without absolutely breaking the bank.

My FAVE deal of the sale so far, this is over 80% off!  Comes with seven beautiful shadows in various shades that perfectly complement each other.  Both matte and shimmer finishes, you will be able to create SO many different combos.  This beats most prices on drugstore brands!

My favorite sale of the year is here! This is your chance to get brands and items that never go on sale for significant discounts before the season starts! These are not last seasons styles! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early access shopping for cardholders starts today, July 9th.  Many of the items on sale have limited quantities and sell out very quickly. Shop fast if you have items you can’t live without. As always, all online orders have free shipping and returns with no minimum.

If you are not a cardholder (debit or credit), you will still be able to see all the sale prices and add items to your wish list, but you will not be able to purchase until the sale goes live to the public on Friday July 18th.  If you don’t want to miss out on some of the best deals, you can apply for a Nordstrom card and find out instantly if you are approved.

On top of early access shopping, if you are a Nordstrom cardholder, you will get double points through the Nordstrom Rewards program!  Traditionally, you will receive 2 points per net dollar spent and with every 2,000 points, you will receive a $20 Nordstrom Note.  During the early access sale, you will receive 4 points per dollar spent!

But Nordstrom is EXPENSIVE!

Okay, I get it.  Nordstrom’s prices are higher than Old Navy or Target.  I understand.  But here’s the deal.  I eventually got tired of buying super cheap clothes that barely lasted a few months and if they did, they were misshapen and stretched out after a few washes or the color faded.  Generally, most everything Nordstrom sells is quality shizz that will stand the test of time.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying there is anything wrong with buying from Old Navy or Target.  They definitely have their time and place.  But coming from a self-proclaimed shopping hater, I’d much rather shop once for a few quality pieces that will last than 172 times per year because my clothes keep wearing out.  This sale is the best of both worlds: Great prices AND amazing quality.

Nordstrom also has THE MOST FANTASTIC CUSTOMER SERVICE ON THE PLANET.  They have free shipping and returns on all purchases, so you can try on in the comfort of your own home if you prefer or easily shop if you are not near a store.  They do price adjustments on items as long as the item is still in stock.  They will work with you on just about any return or exchange.  They have personal stylists and even in-store tailors if you need your clothes brought in or hemmed.  The manager at Target yelled at me when I tried to return a pair of shorts WITH THE TAG ON.  So sometimes I will pay a little more to 100% know my service will be impeccable.

My absolute favorite CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT items:

_10560429

I fell in love with this bra last year at the sale and so when it went on the sale again, I jumped with joy.  I wish I could have it in every color.  It’s perfect! Love everything Natori.  It (almost) literally comes in one million colors and one million sizes.

_10817239

These are the only underwear that I wear. This is the only time that they go on sale. It’s like wearing no underwear, they feel that good. And no panty lines! I buy four new pairs every year and throw out the holey ones. They are the best.  I’m not kidding, THE BEST.  You literally feel like you’re wearing nothing at all, which is genius because I despise underwear approximately 98% of the time.  Also available in Low Rise.

_10390143

These things are amazing.  They are reversible so if you spill something on them, just flip them inside out.  The quality is fantastic and they hold their shape really, really well.  They are on the thicker side so they won’t wear out and they are warm.  They are crazy comfortable, well made and have the perfect fabric.  They are stretchy, but not thin.  They are flexible, but stay put.  Love, love, LOVE them. I wear them with boots under a sweater in the winter or to work out when it’s super cold.  Really versatile!  These come in approximately one million colors.  I have both the black and the navy because between the two, they go with EVERYTHING.

_9266424

Until I graduated to working out in shorts because my body gets to one bajillion degrees when I wear anything but a sports bra and spandex, these were the absolute only workout pants I would wear.  I own about 7 pairs, in several different colors.  These are the most amazing workout pants.  They are NOT see-through, but not so thick that you want to die from heat stroke.  They stay put so you’re not messing with them throughout your entire workout.  They are a great length.  And the price is UNBEATABLE.  This is the lowest they go all year unless we see some weird sort of freak clearance.  Buy five pairs and thank me later.

_10617575

This is the only face lotion I use and have been using it since high school.  It is the perfect blend for my face, super moisturizing but not at all greasy.  Fantastic value!  This set comes with a jumbo size bottle (6.7 oz) plus a travel size bottle (1.7 oz).  Also available in the Moisturizing Gel, which is a little better suited for oilier skin.

Okay.  I need these in ALL THE COLORS.  To go with every single outfit obviously.  These are guaranteed to be gone by the public sale, they barely can sit in stock during regular non-sale season.  I want them all.

My favorite new items from the Anniversary Sale catalog:

PicMonkey Collage

  1. TOMS Desert Wedge Bootie just $78.90 + FREE shipping ($118.95 after sale).  I have been wanting a pair of these for basically my whole life.  I’m not trendy so can’t pull off a whole lot of fancy, so these are the perfect balance.
  2. Kut from the Kloth ‘Diana’ Stretch Skinny Jeans just $59.90 + FREE shipping ($89.50 after sale).  These come in both regular and petite and are an AWESOME value.
  3. Lush ‘Perfect’ Roll Tab Sleeve Tunic just $27.90 + FREE shipping ($42 after sale).  Comes in five different colors and looks SO comfy.  Super easy to dress up or down.
  4. Steve Madden ‘Willits’ Quilted Moto Boot just $133.90 + FREE shipping ($199.95 after sale).  Available in both black or brown leather, this is the perfect boot to add to your wardrobe.  Everyone needs at least one pair of classic boots!

My favorite sale of the year is almost here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts Friday July 18th and runs through August 2nd, 2015. The Anniversary Sale is pre-season items that aren’t being clearanced but are the fall/winter items available in summer at AMAZING prices. I buy almost all of my clothes and shoes in July at this sale.  On the date the sale starts, I will be sure to post some of my favorite deals.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access

In the meantime, if you or a friend or family member happen to be a Nordstrom cardholder, you can shop early! Starting Thursday July 9th through the 16th, cardholders will have early access to the MOST AMAZING SALE ON THE PLANET.  Many of the items on sale have limited quantity and actually sell out before the sale even starts for the public. This is a great way to get hot deals if you have access already or are interested in opening a Nordstrom card.

It’s super easy to apply for a Nordstrom card and start reaping the benefits of being a cardholder!  The BEST  PART about Nordstrom is that they have a debit card available.  If you aren’t interested in opening a credit card, you can apply for a debit card that will be linked to your bank account.  Your purchases will be drawn directly from your account instead of being bought on credit AND you still get early access to all the great Anniversary Sale deals!

On top of early access shopping, if you are a Nordstrom cardholder, you will get double points through the Nordstrom Rewards program!  Traditionally, you will receive 2 points per net dollar spent and with every 2,000 points, you will receive a $20 Nordstrom Note.  During the early access sale, you will receive 4 points per dollar spent!

I am going to be buying a few basics that I round out my wardrobe with every year including Zella Live-In LeggingsNatori bras and Hanky Panky underwear.  All of these items never or rarely go on sale or clearance and are items I wear almost daily.  You literally can’t beat the prices!

Just a reminder that they always have free shipping, free returns and price adjust as long as the items are still available!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale runs through August 5th, 2013 and I just had a chance to go through their deals for men. Many of the items on sale have limited quantity and sell out very quickly so shop fast if you have items you can’t live without. As always, all online orders have free shipping and returns with no minimum.

Many of these items are at prices lower than anything I’ve seen on the internet or in stores.  What I love about this sale is that it’s not just clearanced items, but the hottest items at prices you won’t see until next year’s sale. Nobody else does a sale like this. Great deals!

There are so many good prices on items that never go on sale for men, women & children that I couldn’t begin to list them all, but here are a few of my favorites. Click here to see everything on this year’s Anniversary Sale.

New Balance 1400 Running Shoe

I can’t find these shoes for less than $80 anywhere online. The price is so low on some of them, you have to add it to your cart just so it won’t come up in an internet search.  We have been really impressed with the quality and durability of New Balance shoes. Click here to see all the athletic shoes on sale.

Nike Dri-Fit Socks

  • Men’s Socks: Prices starting at $7.90 + FREE shipping & returns

They have some amazing deals on 3-pk and 4-pks of socks with brand names like Under Armour, Nike, Cole Haan and the Nordstrom brand.  These are almost half the price of the same socks everywhere else online. Stock-up time!

Converse

These are a staple at our house and I’m pretty happy if I can get them for under $40! My hubby wears them until they are falling apart. They do run a bit big, so my husband who typically wears a size 13 shoe, wears a 12.

North Face

I have been so impressed with the customer service at The North Face. My husband and I both have the Venture Jacket pictured above and they are almost indestructible.  Except for that one time I destroyed mine. And guess what? They replaced it. They have a lifetime guarantee.  I’m not even joking! It was the best $74 I’ve ever spent.  I bought it in July 2006 at the Anniversary Sale and have had a brand new looking jacket ever since.
