Susie’s Top 10 Picks: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Susie’s Top 10 Picks: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ✨

I love to help you select the very best items on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so below are my top 10 picks by category. After all, it can be a little overwhelming (and exciting) because, well … we all love a good deal. So, check your closets and see what you need — then get ready to have some fun!

Why is the Anniversary Sale such a big deal? Because it’s brand new fall merchandise, on sale before the season even starts, and it gets marked back up in a few weeks. So, now is the time to buy the main pieces for your fall wardrobe!

The #1 strategy is to focus on the items that are most likely to sell out.  Many customer favorites literally sell out on the first day, and sometimes they don’t get restocked. Today’s post is about the top 10 picks I think are worth grabbing before they’re gone. Don’t wait … buy them as soon as you can!

I’ve had several people ask me how they can shop online and make sure I get the credit. I really appreciate this, thank you so much ❤️ You simply click on this Nordstrom link, or any clickable link in this post, and shop away!!

#1 Designer Collections, Part 1: Here’s Where to Start

Hands down, this is the very first place to start. There are certain items in each collection that go first, so I’m sharing this year’s predictions! Let me explain. Several years ago, when I was working as a Nordstrom Stylist, we were’t allowed to pull items for our customers until 8:00 am. This particular year, everyone wanted a Veronica Beard jacket, and just before opening, 8 stylists were standing in front of the fixture, and we each could take ONE. No joke. And, any others to be sold that day needed to be ordered. This is what I’m talking about … trust me here!

#3 Favorite denim — the best selection is now

Denim is always a smart buy on the Anniversary Sale, and the good news is, this year the selection is really great! Look for favorite brands like Mother, Paige, AG and Frame. All the styles below are tried and true, and every year, the best styles sell out. My advice is to order several pairs, and decide which ones are best once you’ve tried them on. These are jeans you’ll wear all the time, so stock up and you’ll be really happy you did! Here are my favorite brands and fits for 2024.
