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.

Another thing that makes the sale special is its beauty deals; Nordstrom works with huge brands to create special value packages of their most popular products, which makes it a great time to stock up.

Earlier this week, Megs ran down some of her favorite pieces from the sale during its Early Access phase for Nordstrom cardholders, and now everyone can get those exact same prices. Hurry, though–everything will go back to full price on August 8.
