It’s been absolutely ages, friends – I’ve missed the bejeezus out of you! But I couldn’t let our favorite time of year – the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – go by without notice, now could I?
So! Here’s what I know so far about the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale:
Presale begins July 13 for all Nordstrom cardholders (if you’re a fancy Level 4 cardholder, you can shop July 12, in store only). Typically, that means that you can shop online as of 12:01 AM, PDT, on July 13.
The Sale opens to the general public on July 21, again at 12:01 AM. And the Sale ends (meaning prices go back up to regular retail!) on August 6. For more deets on the hows and whys, I’ve spelled it all out right here.
The goods: If you’re itching for an early peek at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog (direct links to the catalog are in teeny tiny print on the left sidebar of that page), you know I’ve got your back! And PS: when you take a look through and start to worry that you haven’t found enough goods to thoroughly burn through your retirement savings, don’t fret: for the last few years, the catalog has been lackluster, but the goods that weren’t in the catalog end up being the highlights. So, have faith!
I haven’t quite worked out whether I’ll do my usual “Editor’s Picks” story this year, or whether I’ll share my faves on social media instead. The mystery! The intrigue! The indecision! Just watch this space…I solemnly swear you’ll be the first to know just as soon as I have favorites to report. In the meantime, what are you hoping to find in your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale stocking this year? New denim? Boots? Or are you excited to stock up on old faves, like Hanky Panky thongs and Zella leggings? Tell me all your hopes and dreams (you know, shopping-wise), and I’ll be on the lookout! Me? I’m hoping for a super-chic statement jacket to up my tired tee-and-jeans game. And though I have more ankle boots than any person needs, I’d dearly love to find a pair I can actually walk in.
