Stylish Lowdown on Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2023

Hi Friends! I know it's been a hot minute since I've shared on the blog, life has really gotten to me these last 5 month but I am back with my annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale low down post. Last year I posted and then promptly got C**** and was down for the count for basically the entire month of July so I didn't get to share any of my picks so I am excited to be back this year healthy and ready to share. As always, I wanted to break down the sale for y'all so you are prepared to maximize your success in getting every piece you want. Similar to previous years, there will be no print catalog, just an online catalog which debuts July 3rd!  Here is my breakdown of the sale!

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The Anniversary Sale is Nordstrom's biggest sale of the year, seriously! This sale allows shoppers to shop New Arrivals from some of the hottest brands including Spanx, Madewell, Free People etc. at a discounted price (up to 50% off) before the prices go up to regular price. Some of the items featured normally NEVER go on sale, so this is the time to snag those fall must haves!  There are no promo codes, everything is reduced during the time frame of the sale.

Important Dates to Remember
The sale opens to the public (meaning non Nordstrom cardholders / Nordy Club member) on July 17th but if you're a Nordstrom cardholder / Nordy Club member, the date you can shop depends on your status. AKA how much you spend per year. A change this year is that they have shorted the time frame between tiers which I think is to prevent items from selling out and from the constant complains they were getting.  The sale will go live online (for every tier and to the public) at 12:01 EST / 9:01 PST. 

July 3rd, Preview Opens to EVERYONE
July 11-16 Icon Early Access
July 12-16 Ambassador Early Access
July 13-16, Influencer Early Access
July 17th, Sale Opens to the Public
August 3rd, Sale ends and prices go back up

Best Advice for the Sale?
My advice for shopping the sale, because we all will probably make multiple purchases, is to snag those hot items first before they are gone. This includes those coveted Spanx leggings, booties, cardigans, tees and anything on the lower price point (I would say under $50). Also if you like multiple colors or are not sure of the item sizing, order multiple! There is nothing worse than ordering the wrong size and coming back and finding it's sold out, Nordstrom has FREE returns and is probably the easiest company to do returns at, so it's well worth it! This is the best advice I've learned first hand because the good stuff that everyone loves will go out of stock fast.

As I've done in the past, on the first day of Icon access I will share all my favorites and then throughout the early access I'll share different lists enabling you to bookmark everything you like so once it does open to your tier you can quickly add to cart and purchase! Remember to come back here as well as on IG and the LTK app for all your #NSale content, I will be sharing tons of different posts!

Also you can shop all my favorites at any time once the sale begins on the tab in my top bar that's titled "Nordstrom Anniversary Sale" and see all my posts related to the sale under the Categories tab "Nordstrom Anniversary Sale"

So until next time... Live Stylishly
