Can you believe it’s that time again? YES! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 catalog was just released and if the featured products are any indication of the full Nordstrom Anniversary Sale then I have a really good feeling we’re in for a treat. If you’re a regular Nordstrom shopper you should be receiving the catalog in the mail, but if not don’t worry because it’s also available online HERE.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (aka #NSale), here’s a quick rundown. Once a year beginning in July, Nordstrom gives shoppers a chance to score epically marked down new fall and winter merchandise from nearly every brand carried at the store. The sale lasts for three weeks and when it ends every item goes back up to full price. It’s not only an awesome time to shop for new clothing and accessories, but also home wares and beauty goodies!
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 Catalog Highlights
FALL FOOTWEAR // If there’s one type of shoe you should shop for at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, it’s a new pair of boots. Expect to see a range of short booties, knee highs, over the knee and thigh high boots included in the sale!
DESIGNER DENIM + ATHLETICWEAR // Every major denim brand carried at Nordstrom like Paige, AG, Madewell, Joe’s etc. will have a few pairs of jeans marked down in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. You can see a few of them in the catalog above! The #NSale is also a prime sale to shop if you’re looking for new athleticwear and sneakers. I’ve scored multiples pairs of Adidas and Nike kicks at previous sales!
CLOSET STAPLES // The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a great time to stock up on items you need, but always forget to buy, like underwear, bras, socks, pajamas and cozy basics.

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE FAQ
Why is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale such a big deal?
Skeptical of all the hype surrounding the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? It’s a lot to take in! But after 3+ years of loyally shopping the sale myself, I can tell you it’s worth taking advantage of because the discounts are massive and all the merchandise is BRAND NEW for fall and winter. Here are a few more reason why the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is special and unique:
+ It happens only once a year in the summer right as fall & winter styles begin hitting stores.
+ It’s more than just women’s’ clothing. All departments will have discounts including men’s, shoes, handbags, beauty, athletic, home and kids.
+ The selection is huge. There are literally thousands of items, many of which are exclusive just to Nordstrom aka you can’t shop them at any other store! All brands available at Nordstrom almost certainly will have some styles included in the sale. For example last year I found steals from so many of my personal favorites like Free People, Patagonia, The North Face, Sam Edelman, Tory Burch and Sole Society. PS you can see my in-store dressing room try on from last year here and get a peek at what I ended up buying here.
+ It’s an opportunity to shop for new fall & winter items or splurge on something designer at drastically discounted prices. FYI everything goes up to full price when the sale ends
WATCHES & JEWELRY // There are always a few drool-worthy designer watches and fine jewels marked down in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Lusting after a Michele watch? You can see one style above that’s going to be available at this year’s discounted nearly $1,000!!!
SPERRY, HUNTER BOOTS, BARBOUR & MORE // You’ll be able to shop marked down styles from all of these cult-favorite brands during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
What products are going to be included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
Right now the only products we know for sure that are going to be included in the sale are the handful of ones pictured in the catalog. That said, I can assure you there will be THOUSANDS of markdowns. The sale is huge and includes hundreds of items from every department at Nordstrom: womens, mens, kids, home, shoes, handbags, beauty and athletic.
Some of my favorite previous purchases include Tory Burch riding boots, my Patagonia fleece pullover, this budget-buy plaid poncho and cozy shawl collar cardigan, my Madewell bucket bag, Adidas leggings and these gorgeous suede knee high boots. Check out this post to see what I bought at last year’s sale!

How can I shop Early Access to the sale?
By signing up for Nordstrom credit card or by reaching the “Insider” spend status within The Nordy Club— aka Nordstrom’s rewards program that any shopper can join. You can read more about how the Nordy Club works HERE.
How do I sign up for a Nordstrom card?
You can apply for a Nordstrom credit card HERE.
Nordstrom offers two types of cards: the Nordstrom Visa card and the Nordstrom Retail card. Both allow you to earn 3 points per dollar spent in stores and online at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook and Trunk Club. The difference with the Visa card is you can use it anywhere and earn 2x points on dining, travel and entertainment purchases. The Nordstrom Retail card can only be used at the Nordstrom-owned stores I listed above.
Right now Nordstrom is running an awesome limited time offer for all new card applicants. When you sign up for a Nordstrom credit card and make your first purchase, you’ll get a $60 Nordstrom Note (aka free money.) In addition to early access to the Anniversary Sale, other Nordstrom cardholder perks include: free basic alterations, curbside pickup, exclusive invites to special events and between 1-3 double points shopping days depending on your Nordy Club level.
BEAUTY BUYS // When you shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale make sure to check out the beauty markdowns! Lots of brands like La Mer, Bobbi Brown, NARS, Drybar, Lancome and more will have exclusive gift sets and slash prices on popular products during the sale.
How can I make sure I score the products I want before they sell out?
Shop the sale as early as possible! The most popular items do sell out during the first few days of the Early Access period and likely won’t be restocked until August 5 when everything goes up to full price. Remember: Nordstrom has free shipping AND free returns. If you’re not sure of your sizing, you can always order both and easily return the one that doesn’t fit. I’ve been shopping at Nordstrom for years and have never had an issue with returning an item! They have the best customer service in the business.
