How to Shop & Prepare

1. Use the Nordstrom Credit Card

The absolute best way to shop the sale is by having the Nordstrom Credit Card. You’ll be gaining access to shop the event a FULL WEEK before the masses. You’ll get first dibs on the best deals! This is KEY to the sale as items will sell out very quickly.

I’m one that is very selective about store credit cards and last year I decided to pull the trigger on the Nordy Card before the sale, and let me tell you… best. decision. ever. There’s ton’s of perks with the card and you’ll automatically earn a $40 Nordstrom Note to shop the sale! Free Money! $$$

Tip: Use your Personal Double Points Day(s) when you shop the sale to earn 2x the points!

2. Create a Shopping List

The best way to prepare for the sale is to check out the Full Anniversary Sale Catalog for a sneak peak of all the best items you’ll want to snag!

Generally the event is geared towards fall and winter collections but there will be several items you can were now! To help impulse buying, make a general list of the staples you need in your closet and only buy items that you really love!

My favorite way to shop the sale is to start with basics and staple pieces (denim, booties, neutral cardigans, leggings) that I will wear multiple times, and then layer in a few trendy pieces I have my eye on.

Tip: Set a budget for yourself and try to stick with it! There is so much hype around this sale and it can be tempting to purchase way more than what you need.

3. Shop Online

I highly recommend shopping from the comfort of your own couch! Stores are CRAZY during the sale event! Fitting rooms have long lines and its just chaos. If you need to try something on or are unsure about sizing, I recommend ordering two sizes and returning the ones that don’t work.

Nordstrom has super easy free shipping and returns and you can always opt for Buy Online and Pick Up in Store or Curbside Pickup.

Tip: Make sure your Norstrom online account is set up with your credit card and shipping information so you’re ready to just add to bagged purchase when it’s time.

4. Follow Along As I Share the Sale

I’ll be sharing my picks throughout the sale so be sure to follow along on Instagram @everydayraleightay as well as the LIKETOKNOW.IT app to easily stay up to date on my favorites and finds of the event!

While my pics will be more focused on women’s fashion, I’ll be covering my favorite beauty, home and maybe even some Men’s products for the hubby!

Stay tuned and I can’t wait to shop the sale with y’all!
