Advice On How To Shop The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the biggest sale events each year, and for good reason. You can find some big bargains (I mean up to 50% off) on fall pieces and many that you can wear now. There are high quality pieces and designer brands included in the sale. Here is advice on why and how to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Why Purchase Fall Fashion Now?

For one thing, I hate to say this, but fall is just around the corner. If you have kids, they may be going back to school in August, especially if they are college students. So you want to have them prepared with the best jackets, shoes and boots, at the best prices. Besides shopping for your family, there are advantages of shopping for yourself, too.

I have always been a big proponent of shopping off-season in order to get the best deals. The big advantage at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the merchandise is not last season’s (old) items on sale. Instead, this sale offers fresh, new fall 2019 inventory! So not only are the pieces on-trend and super stylish, but you can probably find your size and choice of color if you shop now, too. The prices won’t go this low again for quite some time after the sale, so you can be confident that you are getting a great deal. However, you still need to act quickly because the sale is very popular!

Why You Should Shop The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early

Since this sale is so popular, some of the styles sell out during the sale, never to be found again. I’d like to share an experience I have had in the past and I certainly don’t want this to happen to you!

Me: “Those boots are fantastic! They are perfect and you can wear them with everything. Wow! I have never seen them before. Where did you get them?”

Person in cool boots: “I got them at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale back in July. Everyone asks me about these! Only I don’t think you can get them any more.”

Me: “Bummer!

Don’t worry! This does not have to happen to you. It’s easy to avoid this situation!

How to Avoid Missing Out

You can avoid missing out (on that fabulous fashion find) if you shop the sale as soon as possible! This is my best advice. One way to shop early is if you are a Nordstrom cardmember. If you don’t have a Nordstrom credit card, you can apply for one, and if you qualify you can shop the sale early on Saturday July 12th for early access. You can shop immediately – you don’t have to wait for the card in the mail! And since the sale is online as well, you don’t have to even leave your home to shop.
