It’s been a little over a week since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opened to the public and the deals continue to be too good to be true. The sale includes over 6,000 items from top brands like Barefoot Dreams, Clinique and Longchamp. You can score everything from designer clothes and handbags to must-have beauty products at a steep discount.
As your resident shopping writer, I scoured through the entire sale to scope out everything I’m eyeing during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale — and there’s a lot. Not only am I using it as the perfect excuse to score high-end pieces from Dyson and Le Creuset for way less, I also plan to scoop up my favorite Zella leggings (which rarely go on sale) and a new pair of comfy sneakers to get me through the rest of the summer. Keep reading to see all my top picks from the sale, and bookmark this page as I will be updating it as the sale progresses. Happy shopping!

One shopper who called them “magic pants” raved: “Seriously, I will never buy another pair of real or faux leather leggings. These make your legs look great, suck in any lower belly fat, and hold your booty up! I’m 5’4, 135 pounds, and am a size 27 in jeans. I ordered a medium in these and they are great. They’re a little long on me (I’m short), but because they’re so fitted they look fine scrunched up on the bottom.”

“Quality boot,” said one five-star reviewer. “The pull tab is sturdy, there is a velvet lining to ease chafing and the inner upper is soft low pile plush. Very comfortable and I like the fact it doesn’t have two zippers like a lot of boots do. The outside upper has a stylish vent so should fit any size. They go on and off quickly and easily. The sole is one of my favorite parts!”

Fans cannot stop raving about how well these products work: “I’ve tried many eyelash serums, and Revitalash is the best. Not only do I see a huge difference in my lash length, but the application is so easy. Unlike other serums that require a new brush each time, Revitalash is similar to a liquid eyeliner applicator. Super convenient!”

“I own two of these! These are amazing pots. Pricey, sure, but you get what you pay for. My grandchildren will be able to use these pots,” said an enthusiastic fan of Le Creuset.

When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2023?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially started on Monday, July 17, with price cuts on a huge range of merchandise.
What is Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale 2023?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a huge savings event that some people wait for all year. “The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is unique because it offers brand-new, just-released items at discounted prices,” Michelle Madhok, online shopping expert and founder of deals site SheFinds.com, tells Yahoo Life. “Unlike typical sales that offer discounts on older or clearance items, this sale allows customers to purchase fall and winter merchandise at reduced prices before they hit the shelves at regular prices. It’s an opportunity to get ahead of the fashion curve and purchase high-quality items at a lower cost.”
The sale “serves as a great opportunity for shoppers to save big on both new, trendy arrivals and every day essentials,” says Shannon Dwyer, shopping expert for RetailMeNot.
What type of products will be on sale at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
Nordstrom puts a ton of must-have merchandise on sale. “The sale covers a wide range of products, including clothing, shoes, accessories, beauty products and home goods,” Madhok says. “Nordstrom offers items for men, women, and children, so you can find deals on apparel, footwear, cosmetics, fragrances, handbags, home decor and more.”
While you can find apparel and goods for just about any time of year on sale, it has a big emphasis on fall and winter collections “making it a great time to shop for seasonal essentials,” Madhok says. Brands to look out for include Zella, Barefoot Dreams, Good American, Stuart Weitzman, Nike, Birkenstock (new this year!), Charlotte Tilbury, Dyson, Lee Creuset, Parachute (also making its Nordstrom Anniversary debut!) and more.
“The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale typically offers major deals on beauty and fashion brands that typically don’t have sales, so be sure to catch those rare discounts,” per Dwyer.
What should you stock up on at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
Dwyer suggests snapping up select high-end fashion items you’ve had your eye on, as well as the essentials. “Shoppers should stock up on clothing essentials that you need multiples of, such as basic T-shirts,” she says. “Other great buys include designer jeans, transitional jackets and footwear for the whole family.”
Don’t forget beauty must-haves, too. “You should also pick up beauty and personal care items like bottles of moisturizer and shampoo that are typically only discounted during the coveted sale,” Dwyer says. “There will also be a lot of high-end makeup and beauty products at ‘wow’ prices.”
Madhok also recommends keeping an eye out for designer goods, including “handbags, shoes and accessories from luxury brands that are rarely discounted.”
How can I get the best deals at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
If you plan to shop on your phone, it’s also a good idea to download the Nordstrom app to make it easier to scroll through selections and redeem “Notes” (the rewards you earn by shopping with Nordstrom). You can even set up push notifications to let you know when hot items are on sale, as well as when certain products are back in stock.
Again, timing is important here. “Popular items tend to sell out fast, so make your purchases as soon as the sale starts,” Madhok says.
