Keep your Prime Day and Fourth of July deals—the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 is hands down the most beloved fashion and beauty sale of summer. The event ~officially~ drops in stores and online from July 28 to August 8, but cardholders can start filling their cyber baskets now as Nordy Club members get first dibs to all the discounted goods.
If you’ve shopped the big blowout before, you know that the best stuff gets picked over fast during the days of early access. All those colorful Tory Burch sandals, pretty Vince dresses, and La Mer sets you’re eyeing? They all fly off Nordstrom’s virtual shelves once members can get their hands on them—and there’s little chance stock will get replenished anytime soon. Meaning, if you love something, don’t wait around for someone else to snatch it up from your cart. (We would know—it’s happened to us.)
Thousands of products are going to be marked down over the next few weeks, so to help you find the pieces actually worth your money from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021, we rounded up all the best deals across fashion, beauty, and home. Read up on everything else about the sale, below.
When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021?
Set those iPhone reminders now: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the general public on July 28 and runs through August 8, meaning you’ll have 11 full days to shop. For those of you eager to leaf through the racks in person—there’s nothing quite like feeling your way through rows of silk and cotton—you can head to Nordstrom stores during regular business hours. If you prefer to shop from the comfort of your couch, the sale goes live on the morning of the 28th.
How do you get early access?
If you’re already a Nordstrom cardholder, you can head straight to checkout with the items in your cart. If you’re not yet part of the Nordy Club, you can sign up here. It’s totally free to join—and your summer haul can begin the second you’re approved. To sweeten the deal for new members, Nordstrom is also offering a $60 credit to spend with your first purchase, including anything you find on sale in the coming weeks.
