Psst…Looking for details on the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? I’ve got the scoop right here. |


What’s new, pussycat? I know, I know…I’ve been gone a while. Not because I don’t love you all dearly! You know I do. But things are changing in my world, and that means things are changing here too. (But if you miss me, or you want to see how the house turned out, I’m still bein’ all social and stuff. Especially on Instagram…)

But! I’m popping my head up briefly because I’ve been getting more and more emails and tweets and carrier pigeons from some of you dear readers recently, and I’d never ever let those go by without a response.

“When does the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale start?,” you want to know.

And since I have a bit of a reputation around this subject (…ahem…), I decided to come out of hiding to give you the lowdown:

July 14, 2016: Early Access (for all Nordstrom cardholders) starts online at 12:01 AM Pacific Time.

Yes, I realize this makes me the sartorial equivalent of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Groundhog, only popping my head out to provide a snippet of information you may or may not have needed before you arrange your summer vacation plans. Because…priorities.

And though I can’t promise the full-court press of yesteryear, I do solemnly swear to be your one-stop source for the very earliest sneak peek at the 2016 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale goods, just like always.

    Hey Bonnie! Well, that’s the million dollar question, isn’t it? 🙂 Last year, I had it on June 25 (before it hit their website). I’m hoping that’s the situation again this year – fingers crossed! I’d definitely start checking back here around then, and I’ll get it up the very second I’m able!

    Stay tuned!!!

    I was just in yesterday to pick up an alteration and chatted with my personal stylist and her manager about the sale. Merchandise is starting to trickle in and they said the catalog should go out by the end of the month. They also said that Chloe is not doing a bag this year and nor are any other high-end designer labels except possibly Burberry. There will be Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Rebecca Minkoff, etc. for bags. They were excited about a classic Burberry jacket and a Theory sweater coat that have come in so far…

    Kristin – Wow, what good intel! Thanks!! 🙂 To be honest, I’m not heartbroken about the designer bags…I always feel like the quality on the styles produced for #nsale is a little below standard. But still, it does sound like they may have scaled back on the high-end goods this year, which would be disappointing. The Burberry trench changes every year, but they almost always include one, and it’s usually great!

    I saw pics of the salon shoes at my store. There were some cute ones. Rag and Bone Margot booties in 2 colors, Stuart Weitzman flats with ankle wraps and there was a pair of cute Pedro Garcia wedges. They also had Tory boots (high and moto styl)e as well as a pair of Tory sandals. That was all that really stood out for me.

    Lisa, thanks so much for the heads-up on shoes! I just got a good scoop on a few of the standout apparel pieces too:

    Rag & Bone: No jackets this year. Long double breasted wool navy vest, blue nubby cocoon style sweater coat, sleeveless dress in charcoal, black and charcoal crop trousers, a sleeveless silk turtleneck in navy and black, a fedora in two colors, a cream poncho, Kinsey and Margot booties, and a mini crossbody bag in grey, cream, and deep red.

    Burberry: Leather jacket. Trench with gold hardware, double breasted – more fashion-forward than past styles. $1299

    IRO: Only one jacket – a wrap tie style in neutral tweed. Also a burnout sweatshirt in white and dusty blue.

    Several Helmut Lang, Yigal Azrouel and Vince pieces.

    Citizens: Emerson slim boyfriend and Rocket high rise distressed skinnies in black.

    More coming soon!

    Hey Bonnie! I’ve only seen what’s going to be in the #nsale catalog – pretty standard offerings so far, so I’m hoping there will be some fun options once the full inventory pops up! For now, I can confirm a couple of styles from Kate Spade (there is a v. simple saddle bag from them that I quite like), Elizabeth & James, Tory Burch and Rebecca Minkoff. 🙂
