Everything you need to know about the 2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Anniversary Sale happens once a year, and it’s different than most sales that stores promote. When a store has a sale, it’s typically to get rid of last season’s clothes as the new ones come in, and generally after the sale, things will go on final sale to make sure they get out the door. The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is different because they discount brand new styles and pieces for the fall season. And once the sale is over, the prices go right back up to the normal retail value. It’s essentially like a pre-season sale. And it’s sooo good.

This is one of the most popular — if not THE most popular– retail sales in the country, outside of the holiday shopping season. And for good reason! I’ve gotten some of my all-time favorite pieces during this sale at great prices. Cashmere tops, Barbour jackets, Patagonia sweaters, Tory Burch shoes and purses, Sam Edelman booties, Hunter boots, and designer denim — all of that is included in the sale. It’s like back-to-school shopping as an adult and way more fun.

There are some unique details to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that you need to know ahead of time. First, Nordstrom Card holders shop first. As a Nordstrom cardholder, you get to shop the Early Access Sale a week before the entire public shops. This year, the Early Access Sale starts on August 13th. I’ll talk about why I love being a Nordstrom Cardholder below.

For the general public, the Public Access Sale starts August 19th and runs through August 30th. Prices for all of the merchandise goes up on August 31st.

Should I become a Nordstrom Cardholder?

It’s not a deal breaker not to be a cardholder, especially since the sale does become public, but I’ve been a cardholder for years, and I love it. I will say that there are a large of cardholders and there are lots of pieces sell out during the Early Access Sale.

If you have your eyes on specific pieces AND you shop with Nordstrom regularly, it’s definitely something to consider. (With my background in finance, I’m not one to casually recommend that you open a bunch of credit cards! This is the only brand-specific credit card I have.) But, if you’ve never shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale before, maybe see what it’s like this year before opening a card.

What if something doesn’t fit (or isn’t great in person)?

One of the reasons that I’m so loyal to Nordstrom is their return policy. They sent a free shipping return label in every one of their packages so that you can repack your items and pop them back into the mail easily. No questions asked. It’s almost better than shopping in person because there’s no pressure and you can try your items on in your own home. (Although I DO really want a Nordstrom location in Winston-Salem!!)

The return policy alone is enough of a reason to shop at Nordstrom. This sale is on new pieces, and nothing is final sale so you can return anything you don’t love.

What to expect from me during the sale? 

Every year, I round up and link my favorite picks from the entire sale. I spend hours looking through the pieces and organizing my finds so that you can shop the sale easily. I post a blog post when the Early Access Sale starts and then re-publish that same post when Public Access opens. (So bookmark this post! It’ll be updated regularly!!) When Public Access opens, I go back to see what’s sold out, pick new things out, and make sure it’s still helpful when public access starts.

I also post on my LiketoKnow.It page during the sale to link specific looks. You can follow me on here. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale aside, I would definitely follow me on LiketoKnow.It if you ever wonder where my outfits are from. I always link them there and post exclusive fashion content on that app!

Okay, the countdown is on! I’m really excited about this sale, and I’m even more excited that we can all start previewing pieces this week on July 24th. Keep checking the blog for content as the sale starts, and if you aren’t already on my newsletter list, hop on here so you don’t miss a thing. I share new posts and favorite fashion finds in there too!

There are three more insider tips for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale:

  • While you’ll find plenty of items on sale across all product categories, Anniversary Sale is an especially great time to get jeans, coats, jackets and shoes for both men and women.
  •  Families with kids save a lot by stocking up on kids’ shoes—buying sizes that fit now and sizes their kids will grow into.
  •  For handbag fanatics, Anniversary Sale is like all the major holidays rolled into one.

Just like past years, you’re sure to find can’t-miss deals from best-selling brands—including extra-big savings on exclusive Nordstrom-made labels. It pays to be on the lookout for Nordstrom Anniversary Daily Drops: super-hot deals from stellar brands that can sell out in a flash!

And here’s some crucial inside scoop for all you deal-seekers: Nordstrom cardmembers get to shop the Sale days ahead of everyone else. Since many items sell out quickly, this is a major advantage! And Anniversary Sale Early Access is just one of the many perks of being a Nordstrom cardmember. Check out Nordy Club hub for all the details.

值得重申的是,Nordstrom 周年特卖会提供刚到货的商品,而不是清仓商品。促销结束时价格上涨。另请记住,Nordstrom 提供免费标准送货和免费(无忧!)退货,以及为您在线购买的商品提供便捷的取货选项。准备好为您需要和喜爱的产品和品牌节省大量资金!
