Who doesn’t love summer? Beach trips, picnics in the park, barbecues and, of course, shopping. If you thought the best shopping only happened around the winter holidays, get excited, because you’re closer than you think to incredible deals and markdowns — even on top designer brands!
That’s right, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is right on the horizon, and it’s better than ever for 2020. With new features piled on top of slashed prices, we are so ready to shop our little hearts out. Pretty much the entire site will be marked down, including new arrivals from fan-favorite brands you rarely see on sale. No promo codes needed! We’re talking fashion, beauty, home and more!
Every year, shoppers plan ahead for this sale, and rightfully so. They have to, considering how fast everything tends to sell out. Once you find a piece that sparks joy within your soul, you have to claim it before someone else does. You won’t regret it either, since you won’t find a better deal! Take a look at some of our favorite deals below:
Our Absolute Favorite: Serious deal alert! Cozy is always one of our favorite categories to shop (especially right now), and during this major sale, you can score some major steals on cozy clothes, footwear and more. We have our eyes on the Cozy Open Stitch Cardigan — originally $50, and now on sale for just $32!

Now, if you’re not already a Nordstrom Cardmember, or if you’re at one of the lower levels, now might be the time to join or level up. Cardmembers get early access to this sale, and the higher your status, the sooner you can shop. While the sale opens to everyone on August 19, Icon Cardmembers can actually start shopping August 4! Ambassadors can start a few days later on August 7, while Influencers can start on August 10 and Insiders can start on August 13. Basically, if you’re not a member, you might miss out on the piece you want most before you’re even allowed to start shopping!
What kinds of pieces are on your wish list? You have to think about the timing of this sale. It’s in August, so there’s definitely still time to stock up on the summer faves you missed out on earlier, like swimsuits, shorts, sandals and tank tops, but August is also officially the month where it becomes acceptable to start shopping for fall must-haves. Flannels, booties, scarves and, of course, so many pairs of leggings. You might have to shop some storage solutions too, because there’s a good chance you’re going to leave this sale with more pieces than your closet is ready to take on. That’s a good problem to have — especially because home stuff will be marked down too, remember?
We will, of course, be here every step of the way to highlight some of our favorite finds and the most mind-blowing prices we spot throughout the sale, so make sure to check back every day until it’s over. We’re super excited to shop brands like Rails, Zella and Barefoot Dreams — and that’s only a small excerpt from our list. Stick with Us, kid, and your wardrobe is going to be absolutely breathtaking come September!
