It’s that time of the year again. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (NSALE) is back and better than ever. In preparation for this sale I wanted to give everyone a few helpful tips and tricks to strategically shop the NSALE. I will be posting quite a bit more than normal, so please don’t get annoyed! Those bills don’t pay themselves!
If you’re not familiar with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, here’s the scoop. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the biggest sales of the year and if you have been following fashion bloggers over the past few years you know exactly how big this sale is. This is the one time of the year you will see every single blogger/influencer dressing the exact same for over a month.
I’m sure some of y’all are wondering why this sale is so huge. NSALE is so popular because new Pre-Fall and Fall styles are released at a drastic discount for a short period of time and then go to full price once the sale is over. Some things sell out within hours or days and if you’re lucky they will get restocked after the sale goes public. If you experienced last year’s NSALE madness you know that there were quite a few pieces that sold out and were never restocked.
Pay attention to these TIPS to get you prepped and ready to shop –
Check out the catalog before the sale actually starts! Get in the know before the sale actually begins so you have an idea of what you want.
So what do you need to know? Note the exact dates of this sale. There is a certain date for early access and then a date where everyone is welcome to shop the sale.
If you are Level 4 customer you are able to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale on July 11th! If you are unsure you can check your online Nordstrom Card account and it will say what level you are.
Dates to know for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale –
July 12th – Early Access starts
July 19th – Last day for Early Access
July 20 – Public Access begins
August 5 – Last day of NSALE
This is the most important, so pay attention!! You HAVE to have a Nordstrom card to shop early access. If you do not have a Nordstrom card you won’t be able to shop until July 20! You do run the risk of items being sold out. Yes, they do restock, but not everything gets restocked. If you are dying to shop this sale early I suggest you sign up for a Nordstrom Card but if that’s just not for you then focus on shopping on July 20. One way to guarantee you get the items you want is to find a Nordstrom sales associate or stylist you like working with and give them a list of items that they can pull and hold for you.

There are MULTIPLE ways you can shop my posts! Make sure you are following me on Instagram (@dtkaustin). For even easier shopping, make sure you are signed up for LiketoKnow.it. I would highly suggest downloading the LiketoKnow.it app so you can see everything all in one place. I will be posting more photos on the LTK app than what will actually go up on Instagram. With the new Instagram changes you can no longer physically like an image on Instagram to get an email directly sent to your inbox. If you see a post on Instagram you want to shop simply screenshot the image and open the app to shop. You can also go directly to the Shop Instagram page on my blog.
If you watch my Instagram Stories you can always screenshot the image and open the LiketoKnow.it app and shop direct. OR if you see me say SWIPE UP on any of my stories you can swipe up and it will take you direct to the website to shop. I will be posting my favorite outfits pretty frequently on the blog, Instagram, and other social channels so make sure you are following along! If you ever get confused or need any inspiration, check out the top tab on my header titled NSALE. Every NSALE blog post I have done from 2016 to now is located under this tab.
Sorry for the information overload! I want to make this as straightforward as possible when this sale comes around because I know it can be really overwhelming for some! If you have any questions or are looking for particular pieces please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I do dress people for a living so you will definitely be in good hands!
