What to expect from the Nordstrom anniversary Sale in 2023
Everyone has access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale from July 17th through August 6th. But if you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, you can shop earlier. If you want early access without a Nordstrom credit card, it’s worth joining the Nordy Club, Nordstrom’s loyalty program, as it’s free to join and, depending on how many points you have, you can get rewarded with earlier sale access.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early access runs from July 6th depending on your status in the Nordy Club rewards program. If you’re not yet a member or a Nordstrom cardholder, you can get early shopping access and a bonus if you want to apply and are approved.
Nordstrom will release a digital catalog on July 3rd, giving you the chance for a sneak peek at close to 7,000 sale items.
The best brands to look out for in the Nordstrom Anniversary sale
You’ll find there are more than 100 brands in the Anniversary Sale. We’re expecting to see Barefoot Dreams, Good American, MOTHER, BOSS, Halogen, Vince Camuto, Kate Spade New York, Marc Fisher LTD, Tory Burch, SARTO by Franco Sarto and Stuart Weitzman.
Even before the sale officially starts, keep checking because you can usually preview the sale items and start a wishlist.
Why the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is worth shopping
While there are Nordstrom sales at other times of year, the Anniversary Sale is different as you can actually purchase new Fall items at a discount, rather than it simply being past season items.
So, you can look for timeless winter coats, blazers, knitwear and shoes, along with clothes you would wear now. That way, you can create capsule wardrobes for the rest of year, at a discount.
Getting ready for the sale
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is always incredibly popular, so I’d recommend taking a look at the preview to plan what you want. That way, you can ensure that you aren’t making a snap decision so your sales purchases will see you through the rest of the year, and beyond, and will go with other items you have in your closet.
