Twas The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

When Nordstrom invited me to preview their anniversary sale over happy hour and share my experience with you, I jumped at the chance.

The Nordstrom annual Anniversary sale happens every July. For this sale, Nordstrom marks down a selection of fabulous new fall merchandise for a limited time before the season starts.

I woke up this past Wednesday like a kid on Christmas morning. I got up early and ran to my computer and hopped online to see what (discounted) presents awaited me.

I felt it was only fitting to write a little poem about my anniversary sale experience: (to the tune of Twas the Night Before Christmas of course)

Twas the Nordstrom anniversary sale
And outside the store
The parking lot was swarming with buyers galore.
I, with my latte, and my kids with their snack
Had just settled in to peruse the denim rack.

When from inside the grey tent
There arose such a clatter
I sprang from the Paige Jeans to see what was the matter.
Away to the tent we flew in a flash
Peeked in through the curtains
And threw up the sash.

The ooing and ahhing
From women, the squeals!
I knew in a moment it must be the deals.

The lights in the tent
Gave a luster below
To the fabulous finds lined up in a row.

Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Ray Ban, Tom Ford
Rebecca Minkoff, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors and more!

The leather, so buttery
The animal prints, on trend!
Bracelets to stack
Great finds to no end!

I spoke not a word
But staying alert
Grabbed a few layering pieces and a great skater skirt.

Then making my way to accessories, I strolled
And grabbed a great crossbody bag in oxblood and gold.

After paying for my treasures and walking towards the door
I yelled back to the sales associate
See you tomorrow! I’ll be back for more!

Below are a few pictures from my preview tour. Be sure to shop your local Nordstrom's anniversary sale through August 4th. If you're in St. Louis it's going on at the St. Louis Galleria and West County locations.
