Don’t you just love a good summer sale… especially after being cooped up due to the pandemic? Now that we have places to go, a big sale sounds more exciting than ever. Personally, I’m so excited about the 2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that begins July 28, and I’ve already scoped out my top 30 favorite finds! But first things first:
When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021?
The early access preview started on July 6th so you can surf Nordstrom’s website and see all of the amazing deals ahead of time. But if you’re a Nordstrom cardmember, you can start shopping the deals earlier! Icon cardmembers can start shopping on July 12, Ambassador cardmembers can start on July 14 and Influencer cardmembers can start on July 16.
You have until August 8th until the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is over, but that doesn’t mean all of the highly-coveted brand items that are on sale like TUMI, Jo Malone London and ALO and more will be still in stock. In fact, things sell out very quickly, so if you do have your eye on something, make sure you grab it when you can.
So here are the top 30 items I plan on buying from the Nordstrom sale. This sale shopping guide includes everything you need to feel and look your best this summer season, and even transition pieces that will take you into fall 2021. From our favorite fashion picks like denim dresses and workout clothes, to a fresh pair of sneakers by Sam Edelman, we’ve got every clothing department covered in our round-up. We’ve also highlighted the top beauty products from brands like ANASTASIA Beverly Hills, and Supergoop! to name a few. And the fun doesn’t stop there… we’ve included jewelry, functional handbags, sunglasses and fabulous hair products—out of all these 30 amazing Nordstrom products in every category, you’ll find a deal you won’t want to pass upon. So read on!
