The hidden Nordstrom sale no one talks about!

The hidden Nordstrom Sale no one talks about!

Plus … Friends & Family sale finds at Saks and Neiman Marcus 

Here’s a confession: I’m not a big sale shopper. I believe in buying items when they’re right, not just because they’re on sale. But, before you get upset with me, hear me out and I’ll explain!! The reason I’m not a big “end-of-season sale” shopper is because I worry that by next year, I might not like what I bought this year 😂 However, when you already have an item on your list and THEN you spot it on sale and grab it … now that’s what I’m talking about! Welove those kind of sale finds around here, and that’s the topic of today’s post — along with the deets on the hidden Nordstrom sale no one talks about.

If you’ve been a Nordstrom shopper for a long time, then you likely already know about price matching (or “limited-time sale” as it’s called now). This is when another retailer puts an item on sale, and then Nordstrom “price matches” it. I call it *hidden* because even though I’m a seasoned Nordstrom shopper, even I sometimes forget about it! That is, until I click on “sale” and then on “limited-time sale.” So, if you do that, you’ll discover 10,550 items that are being price matched. With so many choices, I tried to select the very best things for you all below. Hope you like them!

P.S. The reason Nordstrom is “price-matching” is because Neiman Marcus and Saks are both having a Friends & Family Sale this weekend. However, there are some inconsistencies. For example, the Cinq à Sept Khloe blazer I love so much is only on sale at Saks. Details: Nordstrom price-matching includes beauty, Neiman Marcus Friends & Family (ends 10/2), and Saks Friends & Family (ends 10/3).


Beauty scores

This is big


It’s pretty rare when several of your beauty favorites drop in price, and right now Armani Beauty, Bobbi Brown, Dior, Elemis, Tom Ford, and many more are all 15% off (check out the selection here). Also, I shared my Colleen Rothschild night time skin care routine in this video, and use the code SOSUSIE20 for 20% off. And, in case you need to pick up a few items, read this beauty post!




Beauty faves

Armani Beauty — the Luminous Silk Foundation is the best and I use it daily

It’s not often that Elemis is on sale. Try the cleansing balm or the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, SPF 30 — both amazing

Some of these fragrances rarely go on sale. Aventus is sexy and makes the perfect gift for your special person, same with Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede or Baccarat Rouge 540. And, these are all ideal  gifts!

Vince is an all-time favorite brand, and the pieces are true modern classics that you’ll have for years! For example, the blouse and sweater in the above photos are pieces I’ve owned for a long time. You’ll find a great selection at Nordstrom, Saks and Neiman Marcus.

Vince sale finds — ends tonight!





Frame favorites

While shopping in Soho several weeks ago, I popped into the Frame store, and it was buzzing! Now is the best time to grab a sweater like the one I’m wearing, or maybe this best-selling puff sleeved blouse. I found the best selection at Neiman Marcus and Saks. Below are a few more favorites.

Shoes & boots

Another perfect item to grab on sale! And, I noticed the the camel boot I’m wearing above is back in stock – it’s a good one. This year, knee boots and pointy toes are trending, so it might be time to give your closet an update!



Collections: Paige, Alice & Olivia, and Rails

Denim favorites

If you’ve been thinking about a pair of jeans for Fall, now is the time to get them. There are brand new, in-season styles that I’m positive you’ll wear all year long. Click here to see the board I made for Saks — the selection there is amazing. For sale denim at Nordstrom, click here, and see below for a few other favorites.

Saks sale faves

I love a good blazer any time of year, and the Cinq a Sept Khloe has really been a fan favorite. Though black and ivory aren’t on sale, it’s still a great price on the other colors. Also, the Rag & Bone faux leather has been a top seller, and it’s definitely a great piece to own for fall.




By the sound of it, we all have places to go — now and in the coming months! Dresses are the easiest item to fall back on, and I always suggest adding a couple to your wardrobe so you’ll never be without an option.
