The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Catalog, also known as the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview, is here! Like last year, Nordstrom released a virtual preview of the sale in lieu of a large paper catalog. The online preview allows shoppers to browse everything included in the sale before it starts.
The sale catalog came out on July 6th, and I spent 6+ hours sifting through it. Below, I’m highlighting over 100 of the best deals from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021. Click here to browse them by category!
If you see anything that catches your eye, add it to your Nordstrom “Wish List” so you’re prepared to checkout when it’s your turn to shop. Items sell out quickly, and most don’t restock—it’s helpful to have a plan for what you intend to purchase.
Keep in mind, the preview is just a portion of what will be included in the sale. Brand new items are usually added once it begins. Without further ado, here is the best of what’s on sale in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 preview!
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Catalog
As a reminder, public access to the sale opens on July 28 and ends on August 8. Nordstrom cardholders can start shopping Early Access as early as July 12, depending on their Nordy Club level. If you’re a cardmember, you can check to see whether you’re an Icon, Ambassador, or Influencer at Nordstrom.com.

My Wish List
Fall is my favorite season to dress for, so that’s why the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is always the best sale of the year to me. Below, my top picks from the NSale catalog. I’ll still get my usual fitness, beauty, and loungewear items I do year over year, but these are the Anniversary Sale items I’m most excited about.
These items are almost always included in the sale and will go quickly. If you have Icon Status, Influencer Status, or Ambassador Status, you should be able to find these in stock. If you’re shopping during Public Access, these may be restocked then, so don’t fret if something appears sold out before it’s your turn.
Beauty (Makeup, Skincare, & Fragrance)
The beauty deals are among the best, with discounts on bundles and luxury products from brands like GHD, T3, Charlotte Tilbury, and Jo Malone. These are the skin care, fragrance, and beauty deals in the catalog that caught my attention.
Activewear (Fitness & Outdoors)
There are great activewear deals from Zella, Nike, and Adidas to help you enjoy the outdoors this fall. I like to pick up a pair of running sneakers, leggings, an athletic sweatshirt, and a North Face parka for hikes, walks, and brisk mornings.
Barefoot Dreams is at it again with their cardigans, which, though it’s cliche to say, actually do feel like butter. I’ve owned several pairs of Ugg slippers and was so happy to see them included in this year’s preview. More lounge clothes, pajamas, and cozies below.
Boots & Booties
Every fall I like to audit my wardrobe for classic knee high boots, ankle booties, and heeled boots, filling in any gaps so that I can have a timeless, go-to boot for every occasion. These are my top boot picks from the sale that you’ll have in your closet for years to come.
Shoes (Flats, Heels, Mules, Casual Sneakers)
Wardrobe Basics (Tees, Bras, Underwear)
Every year after the sale starts, it’s fun to see reader favorites, and wardrobe essentials usually pack the list. You can practically build a capsule wardrobe with this sale, and these basics are a great place to start.
Jeans & Pants
Dresses & Skirts
Sweaters & Cardigans
The sweater and cardigan game at the sale is always much better than it is anywhere else (yes, including Amazon!) on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, or at the Half Yearly Sale. I’ve included thin long sleeve sweaters for layering as well as turtlenecks and statement sweaters below.
Coats & Jackets
I always filter the online preview for coats by brand, and Vince, Eileen Fisher, and Nordstrom Signature are the ones I look to first for classic, high-quality styles to keep me warm into winter. You’ll see those below along with affordable coats and jackets from budget-friendly brands like Halogen.
Handbags, Wallets, & Accessories
Whether you have your eye on a Tory Burch work bag, a casual Madewell crossbody, or a hat, pair of gloves, and scarf to complement any fall look, this year’s sale has it all.
I love adding a new candle, blanket, and set of coasters to our space for fall. These are my favorite home deals in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview if you’re looking to freshen up your space. And, YES, a Dyson vacuum is part of this year’s sale!

What’s the Difference Between the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog?
In past years, Nordstrom mailed a paper catalog for the sale to customers. In 2020, Nordstrom released its first-ever online sale preview in lieu of the catalog. The online preview provides a more extensive sneak peek at what’s included as well as sale prices for each item.
How Can I Shop Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access?
Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is available to Nordstrom cardholders. To shop Early Access, apply and get approved for a Nordstrom Visa Signature or retailer card by July 27th. Early Access is available to all card levels and card types.
Note: Both cards come with additional perks, like Nordstrom notes and bonus notes, but Visa cardholders earn more Nordstrom rewards.
