We're well into week two of the once-a-year Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I cannot get over how amazing the savings are. I'm a shopping editor so I know what I’m talking about! I mean, where else can you grab Ugg slippers for 30% off? And you know that leather Coach bag you've been dreaming about forever? Yeah, that's $100 off. Whether you want to get a head start on shopping the fall fashion trends, searching for a new cookware set or looking for a top-rated anti-aging cream, you're in luck.

Quick overview

Through August 4, the retailer has marked down thousands of their most popular products across all categories from fashion and beauty to home goods and accessories. You can even snag wild discounts on designer goods from brands like Kate Spade, Stuart Weitzman and Rebecca Minkoff. Unlike other major sale events, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale lasts for three whole weeks. While that sounds like enough time, I assure you that August 4 will be here before you know it — and some of the best deals are bound to sell out quickly this year.

As a lifelong Nordstrom devotee and shopping expert, I’ve already curated my shopping cart with some of the best finds. Not only am I using the sale as the perfect excuse to score high-end pieces from Natori and Le Creuset for way less, but I also plan to scoop up my favorite Zella leggings (which rarely go on sale) and a new pair of Nike sneakers to get me through the rest of the summer. Scroll below to shop all of my top picks, and bookmark this page as I will be updating it as the Nordstrom Anniversay Sale progresses. Happy shopping!

Is there anything better than fluffy socks? This cozy pair from Barefoot Dreams will keep your toes warm come fall and winter. One sizes fits women's shoe sizes 5 to 9. Score them in fun colors including gray and pink

"These are the best socks I have ever owned," said one five-star reviewer. "I bought them last year and wore the crap out of them, I just repurchased all the colors this year. They are very warm, cozy and soft —just the best."

Every quality skin-care routine requires a reliable moisturizer and there's a reason this dermatologist-developed lotion is Clinique's No. 1 bestseller. The gentle formula is fast-absorbing and ultra-hydrating without feeling greasy, which may be why it's been a fail-safe face softener for generations of women.

It's also versatile: lightweight enough for summer but emollient enough to keep skin supple even through winter's driest days. Right now you can scoop up this jumbo size at over 35% off and have enough to last you through the end of the year.

Thousands of Nordstrom shoppers own and love the retailer’s Zella Live In Leggings and right now you can score them for way less. This is excellent news for me because I've been eyeing them forever, just waiting for the right time to pounce. 

These soft and stretchy bottoms are moisture-wicking and have a high waistband that won’t slip down no matter how much you move around. Bonus: they have a hidden pocket to hold your phone, credit card or ID.

These Moonlight Eco Pajamas are so comfortable that you'll never want to take them off. The stretchy, loose construction fits like a dream (while you’re asleep dreaming), and the menswear-inspired piping will keep you looking put-together any time of the night.

I’m already planning to wear them all day on the weekends I go full troll-under-the-bridge. You know exactly what I’m talking about. This summery aqua shade caught my eye, but there are nine other colors, including a leopard print, to consider.

Even though it's July, I'm already buzzing for fall fashion. There's nothing better than donning a brand-new autumnal sweater as soon as the temperature hits below 50 degrees — and I think I've found my go-to in this simple pullover. 

I love how the V-neck is framed by slouchy dropped shoulders to create a flattering, timeless silhouette. The sweater, which comes in five classic colors, will take me from the office to dinner and curling up with a good book come September.

If you're still on the hunt for the perfect bra, then let me introduce you to the Natori Feathers bra (Yahoo recently named it the best bra!). I've sworn by this undergarment for years and have it in multiple colors. Psst: I'm wearing it right now. 

It's partially lined with contoured plunge cups to give your bust a flattering shape and elastic-lined edges that keep the bra securely in place without digging into your skin.

And what if I told you that the above jammies also come in a pants version? These babies are on sale, too, so why not add them to your cozy sleepwear collection? You’re going to need something to keep you warm on those chilly winter nights — or if you’re someone who likes to keep their AC at a brisk 60 degrees while dozing.

Just like the shorts set, these PJs come in a multitude of colors. You can never go wrong with black, but there’s something to be said about the purple-striped pair.

If you haven’t tried the wildly popular Unseen Sunscreen from Supergoop, now’s the time. What’s cool about this SPF is that it’s both an invisible sunscreen and makeup primer. And now, the brand also has the formula in stick form for easy application. This duo set makes it easy to be protected all summer (and fall, winter, spring) long.

I fell in love with this formula back in 2019 and haven’t used anything else since (both my mom and grandma are also devotees). It’s weightless, unscented and worth every penny. We’ve even dubbed it the “best clear sunscreen” for sensitive skin.

One of the best upgrades I’ve ever made to my sleep routine is investing in a silk pillowcase. Not only do I feel like royalty every morning, I wake up refreshed with the flowiest, softest hair and most hydrated skin (silk pillowcases are less absorbent than cotton pillowcases). Nary a frizz in sight!

The Blissy silk pillowcase is made with 100% pure mulberry silk, hypoallergenic and Oeko-Tex certified (meaning no harmful substances were used in the making of the textile). Oh, and it's totally machine washable, which is honestly the best thing ever.

$53 at Nordstrom

Made from stretchy nylon and spandex with a glossy coating, the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings feature a seamless design that doesn’t rub against your skin, plus a high Power Waistband that smooths out the tummy, sculpts the hips and thighs, and contours your rear. 

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."

When it comes to universally flattering makeup, Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk collection reigns supreme. The classic nude-pink shade is front and center in this three-piece lip kit with all you need to get that just-kissed look. It comes with the iconic Matte Revolution Lipstick as well as the matching Lip Cheat Liner and Airbrush Flawless Matte Liquid Lipstick, all in Pillow Talk.

While you can use them separately, I highly suggest using them together, as Queen Charlotte intended. Outline your lips with the liner, starting with the corner of the top lip. For an everyday look, swipe on the lipstick. If you want to zhuzh it up with a bolder blurred look, use the liquid lipstick. Beautiful, dahling.

Shopping for transitional weather is, well, tricky. Luckily, this dress makes it a smidge (read: a lot) easier. Available in both straight and plus sizing, the chambray style is appropriate for a summer evening and a brisk, fall afternoon. 

The midi dress features a comfortably flowy skirt and a long line of buttons for a polished but chill vibe. The whole look is topped off with a matching belt that cinches at the waist and four handy pockets. 

$66 at Nordstrom

It's not a real Nordstrom sale if you don't buy a pair of Uggs. Yes, I do make the rules here! This time around, I'm recommending these slide slippers that are made from sheepskin suede and lined in UGGplush. Your tootsies will be comfy, warm and stylish — what more can you ask for? 

There's a color for everyone (choose from brown, beige, blue and more) and the grippy sole gives these traction so you can wear them outside to run a quick errand or grab the mail. 

$75 at Nordstrom

This is the first reissue of the classic New Balance 550s — 35 years later. It has the same vibes and durable leather as the original pair, plus fun color details that make these sneakers perfect for summer and beyond. 

A fan wrote, "Comfiest sneakers I own. I can dress them up or down and walk in them all day. They are slightly big but not a big deal — thick socks can fix that."

$88 at Nordstrom

Comfy sneakers are a must for me (and you) 24/7/365. These Rykas are excellent for power walking or a casual stroll. Designed for a woman’s unique foot shape and muscle movement, Devotions have a narrower heel, roomy toe box and a cushioned insole to keep your foot stable and comfortable all day long. 

"I just came back from a 16-day trip to Italy and these sneakers were wonderful," raved a fan. "They navigated the cobblestones great and had extra cushioning without being unstable or clown-like. The arch is great for neutral walkers. We walked between 10K and 25K steps a day and I didn’t get any blisters or shin splints."

Aesthetic travel gear is my jam, and Béis is the expert in it. This spacious tote features plenty of pockets so you can fit, well, everything. Trust me: Your weekend trips will never be the same. I also adore the pink hue.

"Beautiful bag and I love the color," wrote a shopper. "It comes with lots of pockets and areas inside. ... I appreciate that the strap has some padding on it and that the bag can also be put on a roller suitcase. I have long admired the Béiis brand as my daughter has their popular weekender bag and loves it."

Been wanting to treat yourself to a Dyson hair tool but haven't wanted to shell out all that dough? Right now, the brand's popular blow dryer brush is nearly 35% off — its ionic technology creates a smooth, shiny look while reducing frizz. 

"I’m completely obsessed with this too!" exclaimed a five-star reviewer. "I have very thick hair. It usually takes me 30 minutes to dry and style with a flatiron or wand, but my hair was completely dry and perfectly styled with this in 10 minutes."

$103 at Nordstrom

Quick question: Did you know that Tory Burch made a fragrance? Well, yes, and it’s a woody, summery dream. The “vibrant and rapturous” fragrance is made up of cactus flower, lavender and wood. Those notes are topped off with saltwater, blue sage and a Palo Santo accord.

The kit comes with both a full-size Eau de Parfum (3 ounces) and a TSA-friendly travel-size buddy (0.33 ounces). Throw the mini one in your purse or carry-on suitcase and have it wherever you go. Plus, the bottle is pretty enough to double as home decor.

Whoever told you that you can't snuggle up under an ultra-cozy blanket during the summer must hate joy — blankets are a year-round necessity. Barefoot Dreams makes the snuggliest and the chicest, and Nordstrom just marked this one down by $55.

The brand’s signature blanket is made of wildly soft microfiber that stays impossibly soft wash after wash. Unlike other microfiber blankets, it doesn't pill, snag or shed. Throw it on your bed, couch, or lounge chair or just wrap yourself up in it and take it from room to room.

Westman Atelier products are really just as good as everyone says they are — and I should know, considering I swear by the brand’s foundation stick (Jennifer Garner is also a fan). This perfect-for-summer set features the brand’s illuminator drops, blush stick and highlighter stick. Together, they create the ultimate sultry, sun-kissed glow.

It’s super easy to get the look! Just use your fingers to blend the illuminator drops on your face for some bronze, then apply the blush stick onto your cheeks and lips for a natural pop of color. Top it all off with the highlight stick on the high points of your face and, suddenly, you’re a mermaid on land.

If you’re anything like me, then you know that fall is actually the best season — mostly thanks to the fall fashion. There’s nothing more classic and timeless than a sleek pair of black booties. These March Fisher booties, however, take the classic look and give it a trendier twist with a square toe and tapered block heel.

You can also grab them in a rich red and white. No matter what color you get, they honestly go with everything. Pair them with jeans and a white tee for a casual weekend lunch or throw a dress on for date night.

$120 at Nordstrom

I love a good Birkenstock. They last forever and have the most supportive footbeds. However, they're not the chicest — until I saw this pair of orange big buckle Birks. There's just something about the large gold hardware that seriously elevates the classic look.

Birkenstocks are rarely (if ever) on sale at Nordstrom, so it's big news that you can currently snag a pair of this chic style for 25% off. Your feet will just melt into the soft footbed.

If you can believe it, I’ve had my trusted Longchamp Le Pliage tote for nearly 15 years. It’s been at my side (literally) through multiple jobs and many a movie date (it’s the perfect size for sneaking in snacks from home). However, it’s starting to look a little roughed up, which is why I’m grabbing a new one while it’s on sale.

Unlike the classic Le Pliage, this nifty one is expandable. It’s also water-resistant and made of recycled material. Of course, it comes with the signature leather handles and snap-tab closure so you can easily fold it up into nothing. It’s also water-resistant and made of recycled material.

Earlier in my career, one of my bosses had the most incredible skin. Seriously, it glowed as she sauntered down the drab, fluorescent-lit corporate hallway — and she credited it all to the famous Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment. Celebs, including Drew Barrymore, swear by it too. 

The skin care superhero is a serum that gently exfoliates dull, dead skin cells to reveal a clear, radiant and youthful glow. It’s great for anyone who experiences fine lines and wrinkles, dullness and even adult acne (if you know, you know). The jumbo version (3.38 ounces) is nearly $100 off and will last you for a long time. 

$185 at Nordstrom

Augustinus Bader’s famous Rich Cream lives up to the “rich” in its name — which is why it’s always a good idea to grab it on sale when you can. There’s a lot of science backing up the Kelly Ripa-loved formula — the proprietary TFC8 technology (a blend of natural amino acids, peptides and high-grade vitamins) helps with wrinkles, redness, hyperpigmentation and stretch marks, making the skin look and feel firmer and stronger over time. This set comes with full-size (1-ounce) and travel-size (0.5-ounce) versions.

In fact, Yahoo Beauty Editor Jennifer Romolini awarded it “best luxury face moisturizer” in 2024. “I found that it rubbed into my skin quickly and easily without leaving me feeling greasy,” she explained. “Using this brought my sunken, sallow skin back to life after an illness (being sick is not good for my complexion)."

$210 at Nordstrom

Le Creuset is pretty much the gold standard in bakeware, beloved by renowned chefs (including one Barefoot Contessa!) for durable, enameled cast iron cookware that stands up to high heat and the test of time. The Dutch oven is perfect for saucy pastas, chicken dishes and stews. It'll also add a bright pop of color to your counter, stove and tabletop.

Want to add more to your growing Le Creuset collection? You can also snag the brand's Brazier for more than $150 off, which is made of the same enameled cast iron that we know and love.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opened to the general public on Monday, July 15, with price cuts on a huge range of merchandise. The sale runs through Monday, August 5. Nordstrom cardmembers, who also belong to the brand’s Nordy Club, got early access to the savings starting on Tuesday, July 9.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a huge savings event that some people wait for all year. It's different than other Nordstrom sales because it offers brand-new, just-released items at sale prices instead of discounts on older items. You'll find rare discounts (our favorite!) on some of the biggest fashion, beauty and home brands on the market. It's a great time to shop for fall and winter merchandise at reduced prices as well as score deals on trendy new arrivals and everyday essentials.

Nordstrom puts a ton of must-have merchandise on sale — think clothing, shoes, accessories, beauty products and home goods. There are items for men, women and kids so you can shop for every member of your family.

While you can find apparel and goods for just about any time of year, the sale has a big emphasis on fall and winter collections. Brands to look out for include Zella, Barefoot Dreams, Birkenstock, Charlotte Tilbury, Le Creuset, On Cloud, Tory Burch and more.

Everything! Start with high-fashion items you've had your eye on but may have been too pricey — this is your time to pick up designer goods (think handbags, shoes and accessories from luxury brands) that are rarely discounted. Essentials like basic T-shirts, bathing suits, transitional jackets, sneakers and socks are also on our list.

And don’t forget beauty must-haves, too. We've spotted some of our favorite anti-aging moisturizers, high-end makeup and must-have fragrances at amazing prices. You should also keep an eye out for deeply discounted home goods like cookware and bedding.

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 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 sell out fast, so make your purchases ASAP.
