The 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog preview is LIVE!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is nearly here and the online Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog is LIVE! Insider Early Access is less than THREE WEEKS away (we see you August 13th) and we are stoked!

Why is the sale so late this year?

Yes, the dates for the Anniversary Sale have changed this year. Maybe you even thought you missed it or it wasn't happening. Lucky for us it is 100% still happening! In order to ensure the comfort and safety of their customers in the age of COVID-19, Nordstrom pushed the sale back a few weeks and we love them for it.

The Anniversary Sale is open to everyone from August 19th-August 30th this year. All Nordstrom cardmembers can shop Anniversary Sale Early Access starting August 13th.

Not all Nordstrom stores are open because of the impact of COVID, so the very very BEST way to shop the Anniversary sale is online. Online is king this year. Online shopping begins at 09:30am ET/6:30am PT on August 13th for Early Access and at 09:30am ET/6:30am PT on August 19th when the sale opens to the public.

We'll be online with you the second Early Access starts on August 13th providing you with ALL the quick guides and pro tips you need to score all the BEST stuff. Get all the 411 and start your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale prep by reading my 2020 Complete Guide and getting on my exclusive email list.

Say NO to Anniversary Sale FOMO

Super duper hot items often sell out during Early Access and sometimes don't get restocked! So if there's something that you want (that you really, really want) you need to become a Nordstrom Card Holder. (More tips on how to get ready for the sale and ALL THE DATES you need to know here!)

We are getting access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog a whole week early this year. That means you have an extra SEVEN DAYS to save all your Favorites to your Wish List so you can check out even faster when the sale goes LIVE! There is no print catalog this year so the only way to preview the Anniversary Sale is online.

Okay let's talk about what the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog is looking like this year!

What to Buy First

My team and I will be here to help by giving you the most all inclusive guides to the sale of the year, starting with this, your BUY FIRST list!

There's always so so much good denim at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, making it the best time to stock up on all your favorites! Just like in years past, I'll be trying on ALL THE JEANS (yes, every pair!) to give you a full denim guide (like we did last year) for the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Beauty Top Picks

The Anniversary Sale really put its best beauty foot forward this year and KILLED it with the deals. The average deal you'll typically see on Nordstrom is about 15% off, and these deals are WAY better than that! I've rounded up FIFTEEN of my beauty faves (products and tools) so that you can stock up NOW while the prices are HOT!

Sweaters and Cardigans

It may be summer, but the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the BEST time to stock up on some cozy sweaters and cardigans because you CANNOT beat the prices!

Barefoot Dreams cardigans

These Barefoot Dreams cardigans are always a hot item! They sell out almost every year. With hundreds of flawless reviews I'll be completely SHOCKED if this stays in stock long! This cardi is magic, because it feels like you're wearing a blanket or the very coziest robe, but you still look like a totally normal (cute) person!

Check out more sweaters we have our eyes on below!


Every year I try on so many cute pairs of shoes and this year's shoe selection JUST in the catalog has me so excited! The boots and booties are always ultra high quality and priced WAY below retail, in trends, colors and patterns that are BRAND NEW for this fall. I TOTALLY have my eyes on the booties pictured below.

Hunter Boots

I'm extra excited that Hunter Boots are back this year!! They were such a good deal last year and this is a sweet deal on a closet staple that I think everyone would love.

Favorite Bra

This bra is always one of the best deals of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. We think its one of the best bras you'll ever wear, and we're not the only ones singing its praises! This bra is Nordstrom's VERY highest rated, with more than 2,000 almost ALL perfect reviews. We've jokingly called this bra the #1 supporter of the Mint Arrow team because we all love it so much. Ha! Find out more about why we love it so much here.

  1. Do you happen to know why some of my preview “wish list” items are selling out even though the sale doesn’t start yet?

    1. Hey Lila! Ahh sorry, we aren’t super sure about that. There’s a chance it’s just going off current stock and that they will restock everything once the Anniversary Sale goes live. Hope that helps a little bit! -Kourtney

  2. Hello the links to the catalog keep coming a 2019 holiday catalog. Do they not have one this year?

    1. Hey Kenisha! So sorry, that’s so strange. Only the online preview is available this year as far as we have seen. You can see it HERE Hope that helps! -Kourtney
