The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Is Now Open to the Public—Here Are 6 Can’t-Miss Deals

Fill your shopping cart with these steals—all under $100. 

Though it’s known for its generous return policy, Nordstrom isn’t known as the most affordable department store out there. But that all changes when the Anniversary Sale starts and prices are slashed on coveted brands that otherwise rarely see markdowns. Thankfully, that time is now: after being open for a week for card members, the sale is finally open to the public from now until August 1 both in stores and online. 

It may come as a shock, but fall and the holidays are coming sooner than we’d like, making the sale a perfect time to stock on autumn trends and snag some top-of-the list holiday gifts at an unmatchable deal. And hey, while you’re at it, why not treat yourself to a handful of luxury items at prices that you can finally afford? Go ahead, buy that pair of waterproof boots—they’ll last you forever and they’re a steal!

Need help figuring out where to start? Here, we’ve put together some of the best deals that have caught our eyes. (And don’t forget to check out the best boots and beauty buys, too!)
