What is #NSale and Why is Everyone Freaking Out About It?

It’s a once yearly sale where Nordstrom releases NEW fall merchandise at deeply discounted prices.  Lots of basics and staples go on sale too.  Often times goods that are rarely discounted (think top outdoor brands, jewelry brands, etc.) are included.

My general wardrobe philosophy is somewhat of an adapted capsule wardrobe approach.  The BEST and most WEARABLE closets are based on having a strong core with classic essentials and then spicing things up by using layers, colors, prints, patterns and accessories.  So how to work this approach during #NSale?  Shop smart.  Look for:

Quality Core Closet Pieces

  • High-end denim
  • Classic trousers
  • Shoes/Boots
  • Handbags/Leather Goods
  • Knitwear
  • Outerwear
  • Accessories

Statement Makers

  • Can be any of the pieces above in an outfit making print, color or texture!


  • Perfumes
  • Beauty Items
  • Home Goods

  4. If you DO have or sign up for a Nordstrom card and plan on significant shopping, this can be a great time to schedule your Triple Points Day(s).
  5. Shop as early as you can and as smart as you can.  Plan ahead.  What fall items will you/your family be needing going into fall?  Jeans, outerwear, a fall tote?  Don’t forget that besides clothing, home goods and beauty items will also be on sale.  You can shop:  in store, online, online with in-store try on or online with curbside pick-up.
  6. Order multiples.  If you are unsure of the fit of an item or are debating between multiple colors, order both!  Shipping and returns are free and the best deals go quickly.  Don’t miss out because you chose the wrong size.
