We’ve come once again to Friday morning, and that means it’s time once again for an installment of our weekly roundup of bag deals. Retailers have mostly moved on from sale season (except Nordstrom, whose beloved Anniversary Sale is still going strong), but that just means the prices we’ll see in sale sections are as low as they’ll be all season.
If you wanted to call in to work today, we wouldn’t blame you. Not only is it a summer Friday, but the hotly anticipated and much beloved Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to everyone!
Unlike most stores, which wait until the end of the season to put things on sale, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale takes a huge selection of brand new clothes, shoes, accessories and (of course) handbags and discounts them temporarily, which makes it an excellent opportunity to get some key pieces of your fall wardrobe at a great price.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is probably my favorite sale of the year, aside from finding a random amazing bag deal at a sample sale or by chance. One of the biggest stressors for me, and I’m sure others, is sorting through the sale items and making sure I find not only great deals but also what I’m looking for.
Nordstrom always does things a little differently, which is why it’s so beloved among shoppers. For most retailers, one of the year’s two major sale periods is just wrapping up. For Nordstrom, another major sale is just beginning: Early access to the highly anticipated Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here for Nordstrom cardholders, and it lasts through July 21!
I love this point in sale season. Second markdowns have been taken, people who are satisfied with 25% or 30% off have snatched up their bags, and now the real bargain-hunting can begin. It’s a bigger challenge than earlier in the season, of course, but the reward is high if you have the fortitude to hold out this long.
