It’s almost time for Nordstrom’s biggest sale of the year! This is my favorite sale of the year because you can buy brand new items for fall that will be heavily discounted. I will be sharing TONS of information around this sale that you won’t want to miss! The best way to stay updated is by subscribing to my newsletter (CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP) and by following @loverlygrey in the app for fast and easy shopping. I will also be updating my website daily, along with styling outfits on Instagram and Instagram Stories!

This sale is the perfect time to stock up on brand new items for fall. When you think sale, you typically think items that have already been on the store shelves that are getting marked down. Not this sale! It’s a preview of what is to come style-wise for fall. Think boots, jackets, handbags, denim and all things fall. I do suggest going into this sale with a strategy, but don’t worry, I’m here to help you along the way!

how to access the nordstrom anniversary sale

Make sure you have a Nordstrom Credit Card! With the Card, you will be able to shop for a week before access is open to the public! If you sign up for a card between now and August 18th, you will get a $60 Nordstrom Note to spend at the Anniversary Sale. CLICK HERE to sign up for the Nordstrom Credit Card.

SHOP FAST! If you see something you like, check out as soon as possible! The best part about Nordstrom is their free shipping so you can make several purchases and not have to worry about shipping costs. So if you are swiping up in Instagram Stories or browsing through the app, make sure you are checking out fast! Items won’t stay in your cart long and you don’t want to miss out on snagging your favorite styles.

SHOP SMART! There will be so many items on sale and it can get very overwhelming. I suggest going in with a list of items that you know you want (booties, new denim and coats) and purchase those items first. I usually buy new sneakers, workout clothes, a nice fall/winter coat, denim that will last through the season and fall shoes. Remember, everything will be brand new, just marked down up to 40% OFF! I will have everything broken down by category so you won’t need to search every page of the Nordstrom website – leave the hard work to me!

SHOP LOVERLY GREY! I will have a blog post and try on posted within the first hour of the sale going live. I will also have ready to shop images that are live in the app if you prefer to shop there – they make it super simple! I make a small commission when you shop through my links for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. If you make a purchase once you have clicked a link on my blog, via swipe up on Instagram Stories or in the app, I’ll get credit for your purchase. This is how I’m able to keep Loverly Grey going so your support here is very much appreciated!

I’m excited to see what the key pieces from this year’s sale will be! I will also be sharing my favorites in the men’s and baby department. The carseat we ended up selecting was on sale during the NSALE last year so keep an eye out for those high dollar items that rarely go on sale.

Women | Men | Kids | Home | Beauty | Shoes | Accessories

Here are a few of my favorite looks from last year!

Please let me know if you have any questions about this sale! My job here is to be a resource to YOU! Looking forward to this year’s #NSALE!

  1. Just curious…on the pink jacket in the photo for the 2020 What You Need To Know post…do you have a link for that? Thanks!

  2. I am unable to find the yellow blouse that you are wearing with white shorts at the top of your 7/26/2020 email. I have gone back 26 days in liked to know and looked in Instagram. Thanks for your time and love your feed

  3. Hi Brittany!

    I received the small flyer at home and saw three things I want. They are not showing in the catalog that you linked above. Will it only go active when the sale starts?

  4. I have the Nordstrom card that is linked to my checking account – do you know if that gives access early at all?

  5. Thank you for this post! It has been so helpful! This will be my first time shopping the early access sale so the extra help is great! Thank you again for all your hard work you put into your blog!

  6. Really looking forward to your ‘day of’ picks! Would you have any idea why they are going live online so late – 12:30pm EST? It was so much fun shopping online before sunrise!!
