What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

The Nordstrom anniversary sale is a sale that happens twice per year, and instead of marking down out of season styles, it is an opportunity to purchase styles for the upcoming season at a discounted price. This is one of the first places you’ll start to see fall pieces.

The Nordstrom anniversary sale is one of the best shopping events, in my opinion. Along with it being such a great event, comes a lot of details. I know it can be overwhelming so that’s why I am sharing the ins and outs of the Nordstrom anniversary sale 2021 with you. 

You’ll find Nordstrom anniversary sale 2021 dates, which will allow you figure out what dates you’re able to shop.

You will also find the best Nordstrom anniversary sale picks. I have gone through all of the sale items to find the best deals so that you don’t have to. 

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Dates

nordstrom sale dates

There are different dates for when you may be able to shop shown above. If you’re a card holder, you can log in to your account to find out what tier you are. If you don’t have a card with Nordstrom, you can shop during the general public access beginning on July 28. 

I really do not encourage you get the card specifically for the sale. You can do your own research about credit cards, etc. but most items are fairly well stocked during the general public access. If you want to get the card, you can sign up for one and receive a bonus $60 note. 

If something is out of stock when you first check, definitely keep checking on it because there are a lot of returns and stock is constantly changing during the sale. 

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview

Beginning July 6, you can preview all sale items on the Nordstrom website. I recommend that if there is an item you really want, to add it to your wishlist so you can easily access is once the sale opens up to you.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Prices

There is a very wide range of price points included in the sale. There are very affordable items around $30, and designer items that are several thousand dollars.

I will be breaking down my sale picks by price, which you can find if you keep scrolling. As you move through the item carousels, the items will get more expensive within each category. 

Most items I am sharing are more affordable because I truly do not feel that it’s necessary it spend large sums of money at this sale. However, I do think this sale is a great way to stock up on some fall pieces at a great price. It is also a great opportunity to purchase a high end item at a discounted price, that you might have already been eyeing. 


I know that you do not need to be told this, but this sale can sometimes be overwhelming and in your face because it is a big event and lots of creators are posting about it. Please remember you do not *need* any of these items. 

You should not feel pressured to purchase anything just because there is a sale or a lot of people are talking about it. I am simply sharing for those who are already planning to shop the sale and may want suggestions for what to purchase or inspiration for fall fashion.
