Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Is Nearly Here If You're Already Missing Prime Day Deals

Who can resist a good deal? Certainly not us. With Amazon Prime Day deals now over, we are moving on to the next anticipated annual sales event: the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is highly coveted in the retail community. Dating back to the 1960s, it features new merchandise that is stocked and discounted solely for the sale, so it isn't your typical summer clearance event. There is only limited stock available, which creates a sense of urgency among customers. Speaking to Footwear News, President of Nordstrom stores Jamie Nordstrom claims that "customers love it because it's fun" and many return year after year simply for the thrill of the bargain.


While the sale is currently open for card members, it opens to the general public on July 17, 2023, and runs through August 6. This year's sale features thousands of items, including new arrivals, at unbeatable prices.

Fashion favorites

The biggest deals from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale always seem to stem from the clothing departments. Some of our favorite brands are included in the sale this year, such as Free People, Madewell, Spanx, Levis, and Ralph Lauren. Whether you are looking for a new workwear wardrobe, more workout clothing, or cute pajamas, the sale has fashion deals for you.


When it comes to workwear, many of us have now gone back into the office at least part time, so we are constantly looking for trendy, yet office-appropriate items. Get the chic Topshop Belted Blazer in tan or green for over 35% off during the sale. If you are looking for office-appropriate pants, we recommend Wit & Wisdom's 'Ab'Solution Skyrise Wide Leg Ponte Pants, which are both comfy and business casual at the same time. While they normally retail for $88, they are reduced to $58.99 for the sale.

If you continue to work from home, you are probably looking for some of the best activewear and sleepwear instead. Luckily, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has no shortage. Our favorite pieces include the Nike Phoenix Fleece Crewneck Sweatshirt and the FP Movement Way Home Skort.


Beauty steals

Some of our favorite beauty products and brands are included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so now is the perfect time for both stocking up and trying something new. Plenty of cult-favorite brands make an appearance in this year's lineup.


As sunscreen has emerged as a must-have for daily use, Supergoop sunscreen products have exploded in popularity. During the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, Supergoop is offered at exclusive bundle discounts, like the Glow Duo $64 Value for only $43, which includes both the Glow Stick and Glow Sunscreen. Another brand that has grown in popularity is Charlotte Tilbury, which also has bundles included in the sale at exclusive rates.

If you are looking to stock up or try out new hair products during the sale, Olaplex and Drybar both have inclusions. Both Olaplex No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo $96 Value and No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner $96 Value are available at 19% off (get ready to get the best blowout of your life after washing your hair with Olaplex). The viral Drybar Double Shot Blow-Dryer Brush is also included in the sale at a discount of over 33%.


Shoe and accessory deals

Don't forget to accessorize! Shoes, handbags, and other accessories are all part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Shoes in particular seem to be a large part of the sale with over 400 pairs included. Look out for trendy shoe brands like Birkenstock and Ugg. Several of Ugg's most popular styles are available at discounted rates, including their viral Discoquette Genuine Shearling Slide Slipper.


High-quality handbags can get pricey, but the sale is making some of our favorite brands much more affordable, including Longchamp, Marc Jacobs, and Rebecca Minkoff. The famous Marc Jacobs Shutter Leather Crossbody Bag, which has become so popular that it can no longer be categorized as fitting into the quiet luxury trend, is available at over 40% off. 

Other accessories such as jewelry, sunglasses, and hats are also included in the sale from top brands. BaubleBar is one of our favorite inclusions, with perfect outfit-making pieces on sale, such as the Set of 3 Stacking Rings for 31% off and the Pavé Crystal Beaded Bracelet for 33% off.

Travel favorites on sale

Headed on a fun trip soon? The Anniversary Sale features some top travel and lifestyle brands. Created by actress Shay Mitchell, luggage and bag brand Béis has exploded in popularity since its launch, and three of its top products are on sale for discounted prices. Look out for the The Carry-On Roller, The Mini Weekender Travel Bag, and The Sport Pack.


Another favorite travel item that also got its popularity from social media is available for less: the Jetkids by Stokke BedBox 19-Inch Ride-On Carry-On Suitcase. This suitcase makes it easy to get small children through the airport safely and quickly, while also providing them with some fun along the way. Who wouldn't want a free ride to their terminal? Other features of the suitcase include its ability to turn into a leg rest or an in-flight bed for your small child. The suitcase is 25% off at Nordstrom through August 6.

Deals for the home

Whether you are looking to redecorate, stock up on necessities, or grab a gift, there is something for everyone in the home section at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. One of our favorite items for gifting, as well as decorating our own homes, the Barefoot Dreams In The Wild Throw Blanket, is available at a discounted rate. These cozy blankets are an essential piece to have in your home for total hygge lifestyle vibes at 33% off.


Get ready to revamp your whole kitchen — some of our favorite cookware brands are on sale, too. Le Creuset has been on many of our wishlists for months after their products appeared all over social media, but since they retail at up to $375, it can be hard to take the leap and make a purchase. Luckily, the popular 4.5-Quart Oval Dutch Oven is reduced by over $100 to $239.99. Another cult-favorite cookware brand Our Place is featured in the sale with a 24% discount on its Always Pan 2.0 Set.
