Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts on Thursday at midnight!

Anyone else getting excited for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale?  Just a reminder that early access for cardholders starts on Thursday at midnight PST (aka Wednesday after dinner if you’re on the west coast, or 3am Thursday on the east coast).  The public sale starts July 22nd.

I went to the store today with some girlfriends and saw that the early access tents are already being setup. I can’t wait to see what goodies will be inside!

If you’re not a rewards member, don’t forget to sign up here for a free $10 Note to spend during the anniversary sale!

anthro_summer_tagI found lots for myself including:

This cute top was a bright orangey red. The detailing on the shoulders isn’t super obvious in the photo.  I love the bracelet length sleeves.

I saw this top on one of the sales associates the last time I was in, but decided not to purchase it at full price. I’m glad I waited and now it’s on sale!  It has a slightly boxy fit, and I love the shoulder detailing.

I actually got this t-shirt in black. The yoke has some ridges/pleats which are adorable. The material is also thick and soft.

I don’t often shop at Anthropologie because they don’t offer free shipping but I am so glad I checked it out today because I found so many cute things!





What’s New for the 2016 Anniversary Sale

Every year Nordstrom tweaks the Anniversary Sale just a little bit. There are new designers and new procedures.

This year I’ve noticed 3 things to start with. I’ll keep adding to the list as I find out more intel!

1. Level 4 cardholders get an Early Access preshop opportunity 1 day before the start of Early Access. This is instores only and you should be receiving your invitation in the mail.

2.  Everyone will be able to earn Nordstrom Notes via their expanded Rewards program

3. New designer joining the sale this year: Alexander Wang

4. Double points for Nordstrom card holders has disappeared. We used to see double points during Early Access and the first weekend of the sale. This is a huge bummer!  You can still use your Personal Triple Points day — this is what I’ll be doing!
