Read on to find out what every fashion lover should know about this year’s NSALE!

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the best time of year to find new arrivals and deals on your favorite brands.

Unlike the Nordstrom Clearance Sale or the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale, where they discount products from past seasons, you will only see new items on sale!

The catch? The NSALE happens once a year, and it’s an event that you don’t want to miss.

The allure of the sale is that it skews heavily towards clothes for fall and winter, so you score huge savings on new season clothes.

However, you might have to wait a few months before you can start rocking those sweaters and boots you scooped up during the sale. But the good news is that these are high-quality items that you will put to use this season and next.

The sale features discounts on a large variety of categories–including clothes, shoes, accessories (like handbags), cosmetics, home goods, and more.
