It’s summer sale season, which means many of your go-to retailers are knocking down prices on some of their best items — and we’re not just talking about Amazon Prime Day. For the fashion and beauty diehards, there is one summer sale to anticipate above all others: the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. While the sale has already begun for Nordstrom card members, it is finally open to all shoppers July 15th, so act fast to secure the bag, shoes, and beauty goodies you desire.
Notably included in this sale are, well, all of the goods that you want — that you actually want, and aren’t buying just because they went on sale — discounted. That means clothes, shoes, bags, makeup, home goods. Sneakers and leggings for workouts, sandals and beach bags for vacation, skin care and hair styling tools to see all of those summer weddings through. You name it, it’s on sale. Though the Nordstrom Anniversary shopping extravaganza continues until July 31, the best clothing and beauty deal are bound to sell out way before the end of the month.
The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is the perfect time to really load up on summer essentials that will take you through Labor Day and beyond. We’re talking Cult Gaia sandals and Sophia Webster leather box clutch for weddings, cute Ray-Ban sunglasses for beach trips, comfy sneakers from Nike and Adidas (like UltraBoost DNAs) for all your walking needs, and stylish athleisure and activewear must-haves from brands like Alo Yoga and Sweaty Betty for those seriously hot and sweaty days of the warm weather season.
This sale is especially terrific if you’re a strategist because you can plan out your shopping and gift giving for the rest of the year. One of the biggest reasons that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is so popular is that the discounts are on coveted items and brands that we want to purchase — sale or not — whereas so many other sales slash the prices of lesser known brands or things we could take or leave. This is especially true for their beauty selection, with steep discounts seen on super popular brands that rarely go on sale (or just barely on sale). On the list of holy grail beauty finds: Hair care sets from Oribe and Olaplex, makeup sets from Charlotte Tilbury and Westman Atelier, facial cleansing brushes from PMD, and skin care tools from Dermaflash.
For the best beauty products and must-have fashion pieces you’ll want to add to your cart, take a peek at our top picks for the 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
