The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale comes once a year...and it's here! These are the best deals on clothes, beauty, gifts and more.

Readers, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is almost here! If you’ve never shopped the sale before or don’t understand what all the buzz is about, there are a few things you need to know about getting these amazing once-a-year deals on designer clothes, shoes, accessories, beauty products, home goods, pet accessories and more. We enlisted the help of Randa Westermann, a luxury stylist with House of Colour, to share some tips on how to shop this sale like a pro.

Nordstrom holds this highly anticipated event just once a year. During the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which runs from July 15 through July 31, you’ll find incredible deals on tons of high-end goods, including those that have a reputation for rarely going on sale. This year, Nordstrom is offering discounts on more than 100 new brands, so we expect it to be the best one yet!

The sale opens to the general public on July 15, but if you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, you can shop during the Early Access window. Early Access begins on July 6 and runs through July 9. The date you can start shopping depends on your Nordy Club status.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is known to sell out items in a snap, but there are a few things you can do to ensure you get the items you want, even if you’re not a Nordy Club card member. Rather than simply adding items to your wish list, Westermann recommends adding items to your online cart. Once your access date arrives, make your purchases quickly—yep, that may even mean logging in at midnight. Another thing to consider, says Westermann, is getting a card so that you’ll have earlier access when the next sale rolls around.

As for what items to be on the lookout for during the sale, Westermann advises being strategic: “I advise my clients to think ahead to colder weather and shop for items that they may need to replace—for example, jeans, jackets and boots.” As for us, we’ll be stocking up on accessories, shapewear and pajamas too.
