The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is on the way, and starting right now you can get a sneak peek during the pre-sale at what will be discounted!

We dove in to the Nordstrom virtual catalog preview right when it launched and are excited to report just some of the brands we've seen on sale: Superga, Nike, AG, Stella McCartney, Fendi, Charlotte Tilbury, Alo, Hanky Panky, Barefoot Dreams, Tumi, Sunday Riley, Theory and so many more. Sale categories include women's clothing, shoes, beauty products, home decor, kitchenware and stuff for men and kids. New items will be added daily, and we have no doubt that this year's sale will be just as exciting as in years past.

The retailer's annual shopping event -- Nordstrom's biggest sale aside from the Black Friday bonanza -- kicks off on Aug. 19, but you can get early shopping access if you're a Nordstrom cardholder.

Ahead, the info you need to get ready to preview and shop the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
Every summer, Nordstrom celebrates with a can't-miss super sale on women's and men's clothing, accessories, home decor and more. As per usual, you can expect the Anniversary Sale to feature new arrivals from top brands at great prices. Shop online or in person -- see open stores here -- and keep reading to discover Early Access dates for Nordy cardmembers.

When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
Normally held in July, the sale will begin a little bit later than usual this year due to safety concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic. The higher your Nordy Club status, the earlier you can shop; if you're not a cardmember, you can apply here for a Nordstrom credit card to unlock Early Access shopping. Here are the key dates:

  • July 24: Right now, everyone can preview all sale items online. Save your favorite picks to your Wish List so you can check out faster when you have access to shop the sale. This online preview experience will replace the traditional preview print catalog.
  • Aug. 13: All cardmembers can shop Early Access -- and if you are a Nordy Club cardmember with Icon, Ambassador or Influencer status, you will get even more time to shop Early Access. Stay tuned for more details on Early Access levels.
  • Aug. 19 to 30: It's here! The Anniversary Sale is open to everyone.
  • Aug. 31: Prices go back up.

Is the sale online or in stores?
Great news: both! You can shop the sale in open stores during their normal business hours. Online shopping begins at 9:30 a.m. ET/6:30 a.m. PT.
