High summer may make you think of July Fourth, grilling season, and the beach, but let’s not forget that July is also a busy month for summer sales. One marathon sale we look forward to every year is Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale (the retailer’s biggest sale of the year), which kicks off today with an Early Access pre-sale. “Early access” means that Nordstrom cardmembers get a head start on great discounts on beauty, activewear, clothing, and more, a full week before the sale opens to the general public on July 19 and ends on August 4. Things tend to sell out quickly during Early Access—which is even more incentive to pop in ahead of time.
If you’re restocking on basics or making some strategic bulk purchases, there are a bunch of new beauty exclusives from brands like La Mer and Kiehl’s, along with markdowns on Nike, Sweaty Betty, and more. But to make the hunting a little easier, we’ve also singled out some of the best deals from the sale, below, that we predict will sell out the fastest. If you’re not a cardmember and already getting FOMO just reading about this, sign up here ASAP and roll up your sleeves.
