What’s on sale this year?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the best sales of the year because Nordstrom heavily discounts brand-new, newly released items for Fall 2019. They also discount items that otherwise never go on-sale. As for what will be on sale this year, check the 2019 catalog for our first look.
For more products that weren’t in the catalog, be sure to check out my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 Lookbooks post. But there’s so much more! Products that aren’t in the catalog are already starting to trickle out. Full details won’t be released until the sale goes live, but here’s some I have my eye on.

The Best Strategy to Shop the Sale
If you are new to shopping Nordstrom, you’ll want to keep this in mind. Because the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the most exciting sales of the year, it’s also one of the most popular. Fighting crowds at the mall can be tough, so here’s the best way to shop: online with in-store pickup. This lets you shop from the comfort of home, while still being able to pickup your items on the same day. Products can sell out quickly, but you can sometimes still snag a “sold out online” item just by selecting in-store pickup.
Pro Tip: If you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, use your Personal Double or Triple Points Days during the sale.
Here’s the best way to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
- First, mark your calendars for Early Access starting July 12 at 12:30PM ET (or July 11 if you are Nordy Club Ambassador or Icon level). You’ll need to be a cardholder to access the sale during Early Access. If you are not a cardholder, you can still sign-up to get access up to 7 days before the sale (July 4th). Otherwise, you can start shopping on July 19 during Public Access.
- Start planning your picks! This page will have my picks and my favorite styles as they are available. Check out the catalog and make your list. I like to note the item numbers for easy searching.
- When the sale starts, head to Nordstrom.com and add the items to your cart. Choose the In-Store Pickup as your shipping option during checkout. If you don’t have a Nordstrom location near you or if an item is not available for In-Store Pickup, don’t worry! Nordstrom offers free shipping and free returns on all orders. Click here to find the nearest Nordstrom location.
- After your order is placed, you’ll get a text from Nordstrom when your order is ready for pickup. You can then head to your local store at your convenience and your items will be waiting. Some locations even offer curbside pick up where they bring it out to your car! It’s really the best way to shop.
Frequently Asked Questions
When does Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 Early Access start?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 Early Access dates are Friday, July 12, 2019 through Thursday, July 18, 2019. Only Nordstrom cardholders get exclusive early access to the sale! Details below. Icon and Ambassaor levels get to shop a few days early. (see timeline above)
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is probably the best sales among any retailer for the entire year. The sale is one of the only sales where you get deep discounts on new items for Fall 2019, which is very exciting. This sale isn’t the typical “clearance sale” where retailers liquidate last year’s or last season’s inventory. Nordstrom also has the half yearly sales, but the Nordstrom Anniversary is by far the biggest sale of the year. I think it’s even better than Black Friday.
This event has become legendary among Nordstrom customers who enjoy outstanding savings on the most exciting new fall merchandise, along with plenty of stuff for summer.
