Everything You Need To Know About The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Everything you need to know about the best sale of the year!

Shop My Look Below:

The 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is going to be here before we know it! I literally cannot wait! This is, hands down, my favorite sale of the year! I’m going to give you the full scoop on the Nsale + all the details you need-to-know so you’ll be fully prepared to shop the sale strategically and stress-free.


AKA the Nsale, it’s one of the most highly anticipated sales of the year! I know that sounds like a complete exaggeration, but trust me, it’s not. It’s no secret that I am a budget-friendly shopper so I take FULL advantage of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It's the best time to get rarely discounted designer items at a great price!

Nordstrom releases BRAND NEW summer and fall styles for up to 40% OFF across all departments! It's the perfect time to snag the must-have fall booties, sweaters, denim, and jackets for 40% OFF. 

You’ll save on fall items across all departments - women’s clothes, men’s clothes, kids clothes, accessories, shoes, makeup, home d├ęcor and more will all be discounted up to 40%. So many top brands are included: Sam Edelman, Tory Burch, Steve Madden, TopShop, Free People, Madewell, MAC, SPANX, Rebecca Minkoff, and so much more!

This is also a great opportunity to knock out early Christmas shopping or purchase for upcoming birthdays, showers, etc. You can knock out ALL of your Christmas shopping during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale because it allows you to purchase more lavish gifts at a super great price + FREE shipping + FREE returns on everything!

As soon as the Nsale ends on August 6, all items go back up to their regular price, so make sure you take full advantage of this amazing sale!


Early Access {for Nordstrom card holders only}: Thursday, July 12 - Thursday, July 19

Public Event: Friday, July 20 - Sunday, August 5


Early access is KEY because items sell out SO fast! One second an item will be in your cart and the next it is sold out. To get early access, you must be a Nordstrom cardholder. Cardholders get access to the sale a FULL WEEK before everyone else {both in store and online}. You can learn more and sign up to be a Nordstrom cardholder here.

{Note: It is NOT required to use your Nordstrom card to make your purchases during the Nsale.}


Since Nordstrom has FREE SHIPPING + FREE RETURNS, I highly recommend checking out often. Don't let items sit in your cart for long or they will most likely sell out.

Another benefit of the free shipping/returns at Nordstrom is that you can order multiple sizes in items worry-free.  This gives you the luxury of trying on items at home, pick the size that fits you best, and send back what does not work.

Are you impatient like me and hate waiting for your items to be shipped? Click "In Store Pick-Up" at check-out and Nordstrom will text you within a couple of hours to pick up your order.  Given the volume of purchases that will be made during the Nsale, I expect shipping to take a little longer than usual.


I will have a tab on my blog dedicated to my favorite items from the sale.  I will be updating it regularly so BOOKMARK MY BLOG to keep checking back throughout the sale.

Let me help you shop! If you're looking for a specific item, shoot me an email or DM on Instagram.  I will be happy to search for items and send you links directly!


As a reminder, I receive a small commission when you purchase items from my links {same goes for all bloggers you follow on social media}.  I truly appreciate it when my readers click through my links before making a purchase - it is ZERO cost to you but allows me to keep doing what I LOVE.  

Ways I get credit:
  • If you click any link from my blog and make a purchase.  You do not have to purchase the exact item that is linked - I will get a commission off of your entire purchase.
  • If you click any link that I send you directly.
  • If you download the app, follow "smilesandstripes," and make a purchase from any links posted there.
  • If you have the app and screenshot any of my photos on Instagram, you will receive an email with the outfit details and respective links.  If a purchase is made from a link found in the email, I will get credit.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support!

Nordstrom released a "teaser" of the sale in their latest catalog. You can check it out here.

Please let me know if you have ANY questions about the NSale.  It starts in a few days and I can't wait!
