This post has been updated on 6/17/19 to reflect sale details.
Nordstrom‘s Half Yearly Sale just ended, so you’re probably going through some major Nordstrom clearance withdrawal. Fret not–the retailer’s July event, the Anniversary Sale, is coming up on July 19 through August 4, 2019. Here’s everything you need to know:
What Is It?
The Anniversary Sale is touted as the retailer’s “biggest fashion event of the year.” In fact, the #NSale was so popular last year that it crashed the website. Unlike the Half Yearly event, the Anniversary sale only happens once a year and features new fall merchandise plus beauty exclusives in honor of the retailer’s founding in 1901. (Can you imagine a world in which Nordstrom didn’t exist??) It’s also a fashion lover’s dream because the new merch is discounted up to 75% off.
Like all Nordstrom sales, the Anniversary sale doesn’t require a coupon code. There will be a landing page or section for the anniversary sale products, with the discounted price and original price listed on the product page (making it easy peasy to see how much you’re saving).
Shop Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale in July. It’s all brand new clothing for the fall but up to 40% off for 3 weeks before they put it back up to full price!

When Is It?
The retailer has announced that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will begin on July 19 and run through August 4, 2019. That’s a total of two weeks that you can shop these incredible offers (as if the best ones would last that long!). Early Access for the Anniversary Sale begins July 12, 2019, so you’d better work on that Nordy Club status.
And don’t forget to sign up for their newsletter to be the first to shop the sale when it goes live!
Early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will start for card members on July 12 and run for a full week until it is opened to the public on July 19. Considering how quickly items sell out at these sales, it’s a good idea to sign up for a Nordstrom credit or debit card to receive early access to the thousands of items they’ll have marked down.
Additionally, if you sign up for the card, you also get a $40 bonus note and you will receive 3x the reward points. Here are some important dates for the sale:
- July 10th: Level 4 Cardholders can shop Early Access in-store
- July 11th at 12:01am PST: Early Access Begins for all Cardholder levels
- July 18th at 11:59pm PST: Last Day of Early Access
- July 19th at 12:01am PST: Anniversary Sale opens to the Public online
- August 4th at 11:59pm PST: The Anniversary Sale ends
4th Of July Sale
The retailer will not be having a “Fourth Of July Sale,” a rep confirmed to us. They are saving the best deals for the Anniversary event. So you’ll just have to hold on a little longer.
What To Buy:
Here’s what our editors bought from last year’s sale: ADIDAS Edge Lux Clima Running sneakers for $63.90, down from $85; TOPSHOP Front Zip Faux Leather Miniskirt for $39.90, down from $60; STEVE MADDEN Rumble Perforated Bootie for $86.90, down from $129.95.
That’s running sneakers, faux leather and booties for all under $100. Brands that were on sale in 2018 included Good American, J.Crew, FRAME, Rag & Bone, Current/Elliot, Nike and more. On the beauty side, new cult brands like Charlotte Tilbury were included. We can’t wait!
