"Unlike other sales, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale features brand-new arrivals at super-sale prices for a short time—prices go back up on August 8," Allodi says.
"Nordstrom cardholders can browse the early access e-catalog as of June 27, and can shop in-store and online starting July 14. Everyone else can view the e-catalog starting July 11 and shop in-store and online beginning July 22," Allodi told us.
"The Anniversary Sale isn't just about scoring fall essentials like coats and boots," says Allodi. "You'll also find summer and pre-fall styles perfect for immediate wardrobe updates or transitional staples to wear into the next season."
"Offered as a complimentary service at Nordstrom, personal stylists are store gurus who know all the details about product available during the Anniversary Sale. Make an appointment with a salesperson to take full advantage of the sale, or ask for an available stylist when you get to the store," Allodi advises.
"Visit your local Nordstrom store to touch and feel the product, and try it on. Plus, employees are available to help locate alternate sizes or items that might be at a nearby store, and they can order it for you at no shipping cost. Select items are exclusively available online, so check there too!"
"Nordstrom offers samples of almost any beauty product in store every day. During the Anniversary Sale you’ll find limited-edition offerings, plus 300 beauty and fragrance exclusives," Allodi told us.
