The 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview is now live. As such, I am naturally reminiscing about last year’s event when Emily and I stayed in an enormous suite, shopped the sale and feasted on my favorite Nordstrom Café french fries and rosé, went to a spa, ate and drank all the things, and shopped the sale some more. This year we will be shopping the sale from the comfort and safety of our homes- just like all of you!
Changes to the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
There are some big changes this year. The most obvious change is that the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will be held a month later, starting as early as August 3 for Icon status cardholders, with public access beginning on August 19. The other big change is that there is no mail catalog this year. Instead, everyone can preview online. I love that Nordstrom is allowing this as it is giving me the opportunity to plan my purchases. I am utilizing the Wishlist feature for organizing my Anniversary Sale buying strategy.
I feel comforted by some old favorites locked in at last year’s prices. Our favorite leggings are once again $64.90. They are offered in petite and plus. A mommy-and-me opportunity is the most fun addition to this year’s sale. Spanx faux leather leggings for girls will be available $37.90. These leggings are the absolute best and can be styled so many ways. Additionally, the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will once again feature premium denim options at 40% off, an updated version of the massive sell out 2019 bootie, discounts on our favorite retailers like Madewell and Free People, and TONS of high end beauty sets at major savings.
New to the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
In addition to some old favorites, there are plenty of new additions in this year’s sale. One thing I’m VERY excited about is BOMBAS! I’ve been wanting to try the socks with a cultlike following, so I am looking forward to checking them out at a discount! I have also put the Spanx ‘Perfect Black Pant’ on my #Nsale wishlist! I’ve never met a Spanx legging I don’t like, so I cannot wait to try these. I anticipate this Hydroflask being a fast sell-out. I do not believe I’ve seen any offered for this price!
With so much uncertainty in the months ahead, it is more important than ever to budget for this sale. I like to save my Nordstrom Notes (psst: Shop now and you can earn some bonus notes!!) from the year just for this sale. My strategy this year is to focus on elevated basics, work-appropriate outfits, and lots of activewear and loungewear for all that time we now spend at home. This is also a great time to buy a new handbag, replace your sneakers, grab your go-to beauty items, and level up your shoe game. It is also the perfect opportunity to grab new bras, panties, shapewear, pajamas, and tights.
This year I am doing the unthinkable– limiting myself to TEN items. I can’t say how things will change as more items are added, but as of today these are my top ten 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale buys:
