So we all know about the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. And in case you don’t know, it’s a heavenly sale that happens every July where even though it’s 90 degrees outside, you get roped in by Tory Burch boots and Vince wool cardigans, North Face jackets and Burberry trenches. With the AC blasting inside Nordy’s, it feels like a crisp Fall day only better because this time, while still not cheap, all this Fall wardrobe amazingness is on SALE.

And not just a $10 off if you spend $100 or more type sale (how ridiculous are those?!). We are talking a good sale. And if you are going to splurge on something (like said Tory Burch boots), now is the time to do it. It’s also a good time to stock up on some wardrobe staples. My favorite thing to “know” about the sale: Don’t dismiss the Junior’s department. They’ve still got really cute things at VERY affordable prices!

And here’s the real scoop to know about: If you go into Nordstrom this week, there will be “private” show rooms set up all over the store for an early preview sale for a select few. But now you, my friends, are the select few. March right up to a salesperson and tell her you would like to make an appointment with her. She will take you around to all the different departments and show you what’s on sale before it actually goes on sale to the public next week. Don’t forget to check out the lingerie department too; a lot of times they offer Hanky Panky’s on sale and bras that are normally muy caro (aka, out of our price range) at much more decent price.

If you can’t make it to the pre-sale, though, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially kicks off in full mayhem July 16th.

Suddenly, Fall doesn’t seem so bad.
