Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the event that shifts my mindset from “Summer Forever” to “Okay, I’m ready for Fall!” Nordstrom usually runs the sale in mid-late July, however, due to COVID they decided to shift it to August. Since it’s fall-centric, August is a more fitting time frame IMO, so I’m happy about the shift and I hope they keep it this way! This sale is MAJORLY hyped up because of the backwards logic: Nordstrom releases BRAND NEW fall items at a discounted price AND THEN they raise the prices back up to their original prices for the remainder of the fall/winter. They also have markdowns on top-selling items that are shoppable year-round (Spanx leggings, Barefoot Dreams sweaters/blankets, Blank NYC jackets, etc.).
I know this year’s sale has been anti-climactic since SO many items have come in and out of stock. However, since so many of us love this sale, I wanted to share my TOP recommendations from each category. I’m only sharing items I’ve either already shopped, own in my closet from previous years, or am waiting on restocks for! My purchases I made last week are slowly starting to ship, so I’ll be sure to do try-on hauls as soon as those items arrive! Stay tuned to my Instagram stories HERE.
Q: When can I shop!?
A: If you have a Nordstrom credit or debit card, you can SHOP NOW! If you don’t have a credit or debit card, you can shop the sales TOMORROW (August 19th). I believe the sales have been going live around 9:30 AM EST! If you’re eyeing something, I suggest purchasing prior to browsing! Since Nordstrom has free shipping on all orders, you can even place several separate orders in order make sure you get your most wished for items!
Q: When does the sale end?
A: The cardholder + public access to the sale ends on August 30. All prices will go to their original prices on Monday, August 31st.
Q: What if I don’t live near a Nordstrom?
A: No worries at all! Nordstrom has free shipping and free returns on ALL orders. If you place your order and dislike an item(s) or need a new size, Nordstrom provides you with free return shipping label(s) to use! Their return policy is honestly the BEST of anywhere I’ve ever shopped!
Q: If you could only recommend one item from the sale, what would it be?
A: Easy. Spanx leggings ALL. DAY. LONG. After wasting money on SO many pairs of leather leggings, I bought my first pair during last year’s sale. Now I have a full-blown collection of Spanx (classic leather, moto, camo, bike shorts, camo leather…). They’re my most worn item of clothing in the fall/winter, they’re SUPER versatile, and they fortunately keep getting restocked this year! I wear a size small for reference! SHOP THEM HERE.
