Let's Go Shopping

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale


The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the biggest shopping events of the year. This sale opens to the public on July 20th and lasts until August 5th. Cardholders have been able to enjoy early access to the sale, but if you aren’t one of the early shoppers there are still great deals once it opens to everyone.

I am a Nordstrom cardholder and love the benefits (mainly that I get $20 shopping notes that I let build up so I can enjoy a splurge without the charge). So if you’re not a cardholder but like the idea of shopping early during next year’s sale (and even before the 20th you can apply and get early access), I encourage you to check out the cardholder information. It doesn’t cost a thing, and brings you some nice benefits.

There are plenty of designer and well-loved brands, as well as Nordstrom-branded products that have some good discounted prices. It’s also a great opportunity to shop for (yes!) fall items for all of you fashion lovers. And of course, Nordstrom’s has a great return policy so if you see something and love the price, grab it. You can always return it if you end up not loving or needing it.

I’ve scoured the sale and found some great home, fashion and beauty items for you to check out. The 10 items below are my favorites so far.

1-2-3-Go!  Happy shopping!



This is a beautiful fur throw at a great price point. Bring on the cold weather and warm throws (and I love fur).

This will make your guests think you're an expert at putting together a charcuterie board. I love the chalkboard accent on this one. Plus it kind of goes with the fur throw kind of evening, right?

These stemless wine glasses are not only beautiful, they are a great price. These come in gold or copper. There are others that are similar that are also on sale. And this goes with the cheese laid out on your charcuterie board you just added to your cart.


How cute are these cheese knives? And they are less than $20. And you need these if you're buying the charcuterie board, right?

I need these. They add height to your food spreads. We do buffet-served meals alot when we have people over and these would be great to add some variation to your spread.

I love to change out bedding and when a quilt is this price and neutral? Love, love, love. Can I say it again? LOVE.


I love this brand (T3) for hair tools. Their flat irons and hair dryers are the best but sometimes the price can be hard to rationalize. Here's a great wand at a great price. And you can make those beachy waves even when the weather isn't so beachy.

I love this brand, Barefoot Dreams. So soft. So comfy. And it comes in some neutral colors. If I can't wear the fur throw (above) when I go out of the house, I can wear this and maybe it feels just as cozy.


I haven't explained to you all how much I love handbags. I love expensive ones, I love designer ones, and I love inexpensive ones that look like expensive designers. This sale is a great time to splurge on some designer bags like this one. I love this color, so neutral but pretty.

Since I'm a mom and designated pack mule for family outings, I've discovered a love for backpacks. This one looks stylish, doesn't scream that I have wet wipes and snacks inside, and is a great brand for quality. Yes please.


I've given you my top picks, but if you want to shop the sale starting from the browser, just click the Nordstrom button below and I will take you there. Have fun and don't blame me for the damages done. Just kidding.

NORDSTROM Anniversary Sale is here! Brand-new arrivals, super-sale prices. Ends August 5.
