It’s that time of year again the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! This sale is unique in that new fall merchandise is marked down for the sale and prices go up after the sale ends on August 5th. I had the opportunity to check out the sale yesterday a day early at my local store (sale opens to Nordstrom card holders today July 12th and to the general public on July 20th). The website is officially live today too! The selection this year seems pretty solid and for those who are interested in getting a head start on your fall wardrobe, this is definitely the time to invest in some nice jackets. Both Blank Denim and Halogen have some leather and faux leather jackets this year that are incredibly high in quality and at shockingly low prices. I also always scope of the boots and sunglasses (last year I snagged an awesome pair of Tom Ford sunnies at 40% off)
Since I was mostly interested in checking out the home goods selection, that was the first section of the store I visited.
The Michigan Avenue store has an awesome selection of barefoot dreams blankets! These are my absolute favorite blankets to snuggle up under when I watching tv or reading. This blanket should be a staple in every home in my opinion so take advantage of this sale and scoop one up for yourself if you don’t have one yet!! I also noticed a le crueset dish set on sale and some all clad pans which are kitchen investment pieces you will have for a lifetime.
It is all too easy during sales to get caught up by all of the great deals and come home with some things you really didn’t need or want. My advice is to go into this sale with a curated list of goods you are looking for and you are sure to come out with some great finds at wallet friendly prices!!
