The 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started last week with a flurry of Instagram stories and try-on sessions by style bloggers. So why all the fuss over one summer sale? This sale is all about purchasing upcoming fall pieces at summer prices. During the sale, new merchandise coming into the store are reduced, allowing parents and fashionistas a chance to buy back-to-school and fall clothing, shoes, accessories, beauty products and home decor.
Early shoppers are Nordstrom credit card holders, which means they get to shop the clothes about two weeks before the general public. Many of the items typically sell out early so having a Nordstrom credit card is a plus. Since I’m not a card member – I have to wait until July 20th to shop the sale like everyone else. I have already created my wishlist of over 50 items I am lusting after for fall. The sale is the best time to stock up on basics, think socks, t-shirts, bras, and underwear as well as an update on your workout gear. Nike shoes are drastically reduced, as well as some Sam Edelman and Vince boots.
