Perhaps the most exciting news for every fashionista is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020. The sale is the event of the year and has been dubbed as the Super Bowl of sales. This is definitely one of my favorite sales and I am generally excited to see what trends to expect for the upcoming year while catch a bargain.
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
This legendary sale is unlike any other and is probably the best sale amongst all retailers. True Nordstrom shoppers look forward to this sale often more than Black Friday.
It is not a clearance or liquidation sale. You will not find last year's or previous seasons merchandise that has been sitting around. It is the best time to stock up on cold weather basics and new fall trends from designers such as Vince, Tory Burch, Stuart Weitzman, North Face, and many more at 30-40% the retail price. This is when I splurge on high-quality basic and versatile classic pieces while restocking my must-haves beauty essentials.
Nordstrom also has the half yearly sales and a few markdown events, but the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is by far the biggest sale of the year.

Set a BUDGET. I can not say this enough because if you are like me, it is easy to walk in and spend 1K within the first twenty minutes.
Shop your closet first. Sounds silly right? This avoids buying things that will not really work with your style unless you are doing a makeover. I can't tell you how many times I have purchased similar items that I later had to return. The sale always has some pieces that are perfect to wear now and some for later, so knowing your closet helps tremendously.
Be Prepared. This is one of my favorite sales, but it is overwhelming without a plan of attack. Decide what you must have and get that first. Items sell out quickly and I often use multiple carts especially for the generic pieces. It also makes sense to check out often to avoid items disappearing from your cart. The online preview starts on July 24th and it allows you to create a wish list so you are ready when your access day comes.
