You’ll be happy to know that last night I stayed up till 2am fueled by a combination of coffee, malbec and swedish fish – just for you. It was a labor of love to shop the famous Nordstrom Annual Sale so I can bring you my top picks and hopefully save you some time and money. I’ve included boots, shoes, clothing, accessories, jackets/coats and even some picks for the men in you life.
I’ve trained myself not to get all in a tizzy over traditional sales because I find we often fall into the trap of buying a bunch of stuff we don’t need, just because it’s “on sale”. Well my dear friends, this is different. Totally different. This is the only sale I know of that significantly discounts new styles that are just now hitting the stores for the season (fall/winter). When the sale ends in August, the prices go back to normal. And let’s face it. Nordstrom knows what they;re doing, and they do it well. The quality, selection and service really can’t be beat. My approach is shop them on-line (with wine and candy) for the best selection – and their free shipping, free returns (on every single order) makes t oh so easy.
Right now Nordstrom is offering cardholders Early Access to the sale. Early Access really matters since many items sell out quickly especially in popular sizes. If you don’t have a card, you can go to their site and sign up HERE. Mine is a debit card, so I’m not tempted to run up any credit card debt. And they give you points for purchases which is like free money that pops into your account and magically appear the next time you shop.
One last piece of advice. Keep your wits about you as shop. Shop with a plan and a purpose and focus your budget dollars on timeless essentials and wardrobe workhorses.
