Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: My Top Home, Style & Beauty Picks

Hi friends – I hope you all had a great week and are looking forward to the weekend! The sun finally made an appearance today after almost two straight weeks of rain and clouds! Isn’t it amazing what a little sun can do for your mood?! Nordstrom’s anniversary sale is here and it’s truly my favorite sale of the year. There are definitely some incredible deals to be had! I’ve been a cardmember for nine years so have quite a bit of experience shopping this sale – so be sure to check out my shopping tips below so that you know which items are likely to sell out quickly at these discounted prices.

Quick Access To My Sale Favorites

Click the links below to quickly navigate to the section of this post that you want to shop (or simply scroll further down past all the sale details & shopping tips):

Sale Details

  • Key Dates
    • July 12: Early Access for Nordstrom cardmembers with Icon status.
    • July 14: Early Access for Nordstrom cardmembers with Ambassador status.
    • July 16: Early Access for Nordstrom cardmembers with Influencer status.
    • July 28: Anniversary Sale opens to the general public.
    • August 8: Anniversary Sale ends.

  • If you’re not familiar with the sale, there’s a ton of pieces for the upcoming fall and winter seasons. So it’s a great opportunity to score some great deals on items you might normally buy in the coming months such as jeans, booties, sweaters, bras, underwear – even bath towels, bedding, etc. They also have great deals on beauty products – so if there’s a product I use year-round, I always stock up. I also start thinking ahead about upcoming birthday or Christmas gifts that I’ll need to buy, which is why for this sale I included my favorite men’s, baby and kid’s items too.

  • Even if you’re not able to shop the sale yet, you can add items to your “Wish List” on the Nordstrom site or in the app. Then when the sale opens up to you, all you have to do is move them into your cart and check out!
  • Nordstrom always offers free shipping and free return shipping (no promo code needed), so if you’re on the fence about purchasing an item, know that returns are free. Of course you can always return to a store location as well.

Shopping Tips

  • In past years, the following items sell out extremely fast, so if you’re interested in a particular piece and see it in stock, I’d HIGHLY recommend snagging it immediately: Barefoot Dreams robes & cardigans, Barefoot Dreams throw blankets, Nordstrom’s exclusive Moonlight pajamas, Zella activewear, UGG® clothing, Wacoal Red Carpet Convertible Strapless Bra (popular sizes) and Bliss Plush Throw (certain colors, particularly the neutrals).

  • If there’s an item you want that has sold out, feel free to let me know! I will be keeping a list of wish list items for readers and will post re-stock alerts on Instagram stories, and in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app.
    • Nordstrom does re-stock some items, and speaking from experience, they hold a portion of inventory and releases it as the sale windows for different cardmember levels open, and same with when the sale opens to the general public. This doesn’t hold true for ALL items in the sale, but for some. Also, as the sale goes on, people return items that also get circulated back into their inventory.

  • If you’re a cardmember and have double points days left, this sale is a great time to use them!

Women’s Clothing, Shoes & Accessories

Just before the sale starts, I take inventory of the items I think I’ll need over the course of the year or items that need replacing. A few years ago I became hooked on these Moonlight Pajamas and have bought a new pair each of the last two anniversary sales. They are so incredibly soft! The bottoms do run on the longer side though, which works for me since I’m 5’10” – but want to call that out for those who may be significantly shorter. They are offered as a short set and as a nightshirt (both under $30).

During last year’s sale, I also invested in a second Wacoal Red Carpet Convertible Strapless Bra – it’s the only strapless bra that I’ve ever had that doesn’t constantly slip down and it has over 1.5K glowing reviews! So if you’re in the market for a strapless bra, this is an incredible deal! This Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Lite® Circle Cardigan is also one of my absolute favorites! I bought the Pacific Blue color two years ago during the Anniversary Sale, and loved it so much that I bought the Carbon color last year. I lived in BOTH of them during the pandemic – they are so soft and I swear, I feel instantly relaxed the second I put one on! These sell out at lightning speed so don’t delay if you’re on the fence about buying one!

Home

Many of think of Nordstrom as a clothing store, but I love their home section just as much! I’m seeing some items in this year’s sale that I actually purchased during last year’s sale, which I love – including this beautifully textured gray chenille pillow, and Recycled Faux Fur Throw Blanket. My husband was always trying to steal my faux fur ruched throw from Pottery Barn so I bought him that one. It’s not nearly as luxurious as my Pottery Barn throw but it’s also a fraction of the cost and super soft (it did shed a little at first though)! We also have some of these white Hydrocotton Bath Towels and love them – very soft and plush and have held up great over the years!

These Bliss Plush throws are sooo incredibly soft, are at a great price point (most colors $24.90), and make such perfect gifts! I especially love the variety of colors that they come in! They also come in an oversized option for just $32.90.

Beauty

Admittedly, I wear minimal make-up, and when I do – it’s just the basics. A little mascara, concealer and lip gloss and I’m out the door! However, I am very into skincare – serums, moisturizers, and anything that makes my skin look younger is my jam! Sound familiar?! 😉 My favorite Drybar dry shampoo is part of the sale, and Olaplex’s No.3 Hair Perfector worked incredible when I was experiencing a lot of breakage. That product in included in the Bond Maintenance Hair Care Set that’s part of the sale, which I’m going to pick up so that I can try the shampoo & conditioner as well.

Men’s Clothing, Shoes & Accessories

While I don’t typically feature men’s clothing on Casually Coastal (with the exception of holiday or Father’s Day Gift Guides), I do shop the Anniversary Sale for my husband. With that being said, I thought I’d share the items I’ve flagged for him. If your husband, father, son, etc. is in the market for a suit, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is a great time to buy one. While we purchased one for my husband at one of their store locations during a previous anniversary sale, their customer service was excellent. They helped identify the best suits for my husband’s body type, recommended and pulled different dress shirts, pocket squares, socks and dress shoes – all while he was in the dressing room trying on the suits. Shopping for clothes with my husband is usually painful (I know many of you feel me! LOL!) but we got such a great suit for such a great price during this sale, with top notch service!

Baby & Kids

If you are expecting a baby, or have friends or family who are, this sale is a must! I love buying baby gifts during the anniversary sale because the clothes and blankets are so stinking cute! I have gifted this Little Giraffe Luxe Baby Blanket several times, and it’s always a winner! I think it’s one of those items that many wouldn’t purchase for their own child since it’s normally on the pricier side, which is why I love buying them as gifts. These blankets are so soft and cozy, and I love the variety of colors! Also, while it’s still a pricey purchase, if you or someone you know is in the market for an UPPAbaby stroller, you’ll rarely find a better deal on this highly coveted convertible stroller system.

Lots of great deals for younger boys and girls too – including North Face, Under Armour and Vineyard Vines.

I hope you had fun browsing this post, and that it’s helpful in narrowing down some of the deals. I know first-hand that sifting through them all can be a bit overwhelming! If you ordered any gifts (for yourself, or for others!), I’d love to know what you got!
