The Best Deals From Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale: From Alo to Asics

Photo-Illustration: retailers

For more than 50 years, Nordstrom has been celebrating its anniversary with a go-all-out sale, and this summer is no exception. The spare-no-style midseason Anniversary Sale is now live for everyone — for card members and non–card members — and runs through August 8.

Because it’s made of discounts on new styles, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a good time to stock up on fall items — and we’ve already spotted lots of deals on some we’ve written about before, including our favorite bra from Natori, an expert-recommended indoor smart garden, tried-and-true UGG slippers, and lots of cute-but-sturdy rain boots for kids.

You can check out the rest of our favorites from the sale below so you’ll know exactly which deals — for women, men, kids, beauty and grooming, and home — to add to your cart. But if you see something you like, don’t dillydally: Stock is limited, and picks have already started selling out.
