It's the most wonderful time of the year! Well, sale-wise that is. It's the only time (and the only store) that puts new, pre-season items on sale. If you've got a Nordstrom card, you can shop early (July 13 this year) and guarantee the best deals. If you wait until the end, you might completely miss out.
I love using this sale to buy boots, jeans and new sweaters for fall, and I always keep an eye out for Frye boots, Hunter rain boots, leather jackets. They also have some amazing beauty deals this year. Basics like t-shirts and solid sweaters are also easy to find at awesome prices! The best part is probably Nordstrom's super generous return policy. My strategy is to shop online and return what doesn't work. Free shipping both ways!
