Let me tell you a story about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that explains the core of my being. For the first eight years of my life, I lived in Germany with my expat parents. What does this have to do with Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale? Well, every summer my parents planned our annual trip to visit my grandparents in Seattle. around Nordstrom’s anniversary sale. Since then, selling has become a shopaholic’s national dream holiday and a central part of my personality (and the first seasonal retail job on my resume). I’ve been curating my Nordstrom Birthday Sale selections since I was old enough to circle bright sneakers in the Birthday Sale catalog with a red pen.
Since Seattle is home to the flagship Nordstrom store, which means the in-store selection is surprising and the competition is fierce. I used to stand in line hours before the store opened to get the first dibs on my favorite items from the catalog (like I said, I’m a fashion writer and I have a fashion problem). ‘purchase). Luckily, online shopping has since grown, and now I can scroll through over 4,000 women’s sale choices without ever encountering a line.
It’s the best time of the year. It’s Christmas in July. It’s Nordstrom’s 2022 Anniversary Sale and can I just say it’s the most excited selection I’ve ever seen (yes, I’m even more excited than when I bought a track jacket Juicy Couture teal on sale in 2009). If you’re unfamiliar with selling, here’s the gist. Nordstrom pulls a Uno-reverse and puts thousands of drops New Arrivals on sale. Pieces range from everyday basics like bras, tank tops and jeans to designer accessories and home decor. Once the sale is complete, all items are marked up by the total price. Essentially, if you doze off, you lose. The Early Access preview just landed on the Nordstorm site and if you’re a Nordstrom credit card holder, you can start shopping the sale on July 7 before the entire inventory runs out. be available to the public on July 15.
I just hung up a FaceTime call with my (very stylish) mom to rate my favorite items from the 2022 sale. This year, I’m excited by the influx of loafers, soft jeans, chic blouses and luxe candles. I love that the sale also helps me predict what will be trending this fall. Spoiler alert: darling boots, quilted jackets and autumn flowers will be in the spotlight next season.
