In the mood for some retail therapy? (These days, who isn't?) You're in luck: Nordstrom's giant Anniversary Sale, which promises to be bigger and better each year, is shoppable starting Friday, July 20. Unless, of course, you're a Nordstrom cardholder, in which case your early access to the 200-plus sale picks began last week (and your new minimum payment just went way up).
The Nordstrom sale isn't a regular sale, it's a cool sale, mostly because discounted items, aside from being exclusive to the store, are brand-new, not simply marked down because they failed to sell last season. It's a big deal, which you'll know if you pay attention to what the Instagram influencers are talking about, and it only lasts until August 6, at which point slashed price points climb back up. Cruel, really.
With just two days to spare, it's smart to go into this thing with a game plan, which we've conveniently proffered for you here. May the odds be ever in your favor!
