Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022 Dates Have Been Announced!


Ahhhhh, Gang, I’m so excited: Nordstrom has released dates for the 2022 Anniversary Sale!

I’ll leave our usual fancy visual/timeline below, but Nordstrom Anniversary Sale items will be available for preview as early as June 29th, with Early Access shopping beginning on July 6th (both in stores and online). Just like last year, Icon cardmembers are the first to shop, but this year they only have 24 hours before the next-level of Nordstrom cardholders (the Ambassadors) start shopping. Influencers (all cardholders) come in two days later on July 9th, and public shopping begins on July 15th.

For those of you new to the #NSale, find a full breakdown, including our best tips on how to shop it (and strategize) on our our Nordstrom Anniversary Sale page. We’re still in the process of updating it for 2022, but our tips and tricks are based on 10+ years of covering (and shopping) this sale.

The number one, MOST IMPORTANT thing to understand about the #NSale (and why we all get so passionate about it), is that this particular sale is a Fall pre-sale. Meaning that the items marked down are all new, never-before-seen merchandise from Fall 2022, not leftover pieces that haven’t yet sold. It’s basically our first glimpse at fall trends. V. exciting.

What’s New For Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022?

Just like last year, there’s a long preview window that allows us to browse through the entire sale online before it’s actually available to shop — similar to the Nordstrom Sale catalog from years’ past. This preview period is easily my favorite new (new-ish?) feature of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’ve been using these preview periods to make shopping lists, curate capsule wardrobe choices, and really figure out which pieces will best integrate into my closet (here’s an example from last year, where I visually debated the merits of a soft gray coat).

And if you’ve been putting off a closet clean-out? Consider this A SIGN. Cleaning out your closet before the sale is really helpful. Here’s how I clean out my closet (ugh…that article is really old. Clearly I need to update it — but the process is still the same). Another pro-tip is to start thinking now about the pieces you really want to invest in. I often determine this with my cost-per-wear formula.

What Brands Are Worth Shopping At The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

Last year, Nordstrom released a sneak-peek of brands along with their dates…but this year they’re being a little more tight lipped. That said, they did mention a few old favorites (ZellaNikeUGGVinceBarefoot DreamsTrue & CoAllSaintsVeronica BeardCharlotte Tilbury), and I spotted one new, very exciting addition: TME team favorite, Farm Rio.

Oh, and Hydro Flask, too.

Personally, I’m hoping for some seriously good beauty finds this year. Necessaire, first purchased during last year’s sale, is now a staple in our house, and Scotti’s LED light mask was an #NSale purchase from two years ago. She had such dramatic results that I bought this one, and I’d love to see either of them included in this year’s sale.

Lastly, I’m hoping that Nordstrom takes our feedback to heart, and continues to bring new, fresh brands into the mix. Personally, I’d love to see Staud and GANNI represented in the Anniversary Sale, as well as some Black-owned businesses like Off-White, Brother Vellies, or bag designer A A K S.

Levi's 501 straight-leg jeans: a hot topic. TME decided to put them to the test for a team try on. With good prices, sustainable practices & a range in lengths (regular, cropped and long) we've got you covered with our honest review

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access

For those of you who may be new to this sale, you need a Nordstrom Card if you want to shop before everyone else. The start date of when you can shop depends on your status level. The higher your status = the earlier you can shop the Anniversary Sale. You can read more about earning Nordstrom card points here.

Public access (AKA you can shop WITHOUT a Nordstrom Card) will run from July 15th – July 31st. Read more about the benefits of Early Access in our Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022 Guide.


If you’re a current card-holding member, you can follow this link and log-in to determine your Nordstrom Card status (Icon, Ambassador or Influencer). I’ve already checked mine and found it super-straightforward.

What To Expect From The Mom Edit Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022 Coverage

As I mentioned earlier, we plan to take full advantage of the preview period. We’re firm believers in going in well-prepared, with shopping lists and capsule wardrobes.

Secondly, we’ll continue doing our dressing room selfies at home — whether we’re covering investment pieces or an affordable little top, we’re big believers in cost-per-wear, and figuring out how a piece (regardless of cost) can fit into existing wardrobes is a really important part of what we do.

We will, however be sending out some early sneak peeks to our newsletter subscribers. You can sign up for our newsletter, here (and be sure to check “Extra Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Coverage” if you’d like to receive those sneak peeks. It’s easy to change your newsletter preferences at any time).

We love using social media to connect with you guys during the sale, and will definitely do that again this year, especially since the shopping windows are smaller. So look for us on IG or FB to try and answer questions as you shop. And be sure to follow us on YouTube. We have some special video coverage planned.

Until sale time, you can always visit our Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Guide for the most up-to-date information and relevant posts.



ps. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us with questions or just to share what you’re hoping to see in this year’s sale! We’re always here to chat on the blog, FacebookFacebook Insiders Group and IG, and don’t forget to follow us on TwitterPinterest and YouTube also.


  1. Every year I am meh about this sale, and then every year I see some pieces styled by the TME team (especially Emily and Shana!) that end up being wardrobe faves if I am able to grab them as lowly Influencer. Favorites from last year were that La Ligne green sweater and the Ganni waterproof boots. Definitely will be doing some closet cleaning and Poshmarking beforehand this year, though. July 4 closet cleanout party before the fireworks, maybe?

    • Haha – we were literally JUST talking about this! We (or maybe just I) get so freaking excited right before the preview…and then my initial reaction is always BOO NOT GOOD. I think nothing can live up to my impossibly high expectations, haha! But once I really dig in and start going through it (piece-by-piece omg), you’re right: there are some total gems. Kat has actually asked me to pull together a video recap of my top NSale buys of all time, so look for that eventually, too.
