As you know, this is my favorite time of the year to shop, especially online! At midnight, I went on Nordstrom.com and started shopping for their amazing anniversary sale! This is such a great sale to shop online because there’s free shipping, free returns, and exchanges. Not to mention, you don’t have to worry about the crowds and long lines! It’s that easy!

Here are my favorite pieces that I purchased at midnight. I could not pass on an amazing sale like this!

Lace and Lock’s Guide to Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Hey guys!

I wanted to take time out of my busy schedule to share with you one of my favorite sales of the year is starting this week! If you haven’t already heard all the buzz, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for card members starts this Thursday, July 12, 2018! This will give you the chance to buy brand new arrivals on sale before they go back to full-price! Prices go up August 6, 2018. As in recent years and as you can tell from last year’s post, I LOVE this sale and always find some great items to add to my wardrobe!

I want to share some tips to you that will definitely come in handy for your first Nordstrom Anniversary Sale trip! In the comments below, let me know if this helped!

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

If I haven’t stressed this enough, this is my favorite time of the year to shop at Nordstrom. And I know it’s been so freaking hot lately, but if you shop now, you can save big on brand new arrivals for the Fall/Winter. Some items are exclusive for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so you won’t be able to find the same item anywhere else. I opened a Nordstrom card for the benefits and Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. If you’re interested in getting a card, click here to read more to see which card is right for you!

I need to know all the dates! When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 starting?

Mark this on your calendars because the Early Access Sale starts this Thursday!
Early Access for Nordstrom card members only: July 12, 2018 – July 19, 2018
Public Access: July 20, 2018 – August 5, 2018

I found the dress I really want on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Catalog, but I don’t have time to shop in-store!

Nordstrom makes it so easy. Simply check out online and pick up your order in store. Did you know there’s curbside pick up? After checking out, use the Nordstrom iOS app to request! They will walk your purchase out to your car! That’s what I am going to do! 🙂

What if they run out of the color and/or size I want?

There were some items that I wanted to buy last year, but they didn’t have my size in the store. I’ve always had great experience with the store associates at Nordstrom. They helped me to find the size and/or color I needed by either ordering it from online or calling different Nordstrom stores. The shipping is free and return is easy!

What are your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks?

Nordstrom released the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Catalog! There’s an online version! But, if you want a hard copy, check your mail or pick one up at a Nordstrom near you.

Here are some of my favorite styles from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale I’ve already bookmarked and will definitely try to snatch up first. I love that pastels are trending for Fall and you know I can’t get enough of closed toe mules!

Ahhh I can’t believe Christmas is only 4 days away! Luckily most retailers are still offering shipping just in time for Christmas and I’m not going to lie I do most of my gift shopping on Amazon and places where I know they will deliver on time! I’ve been busy myself with holiday shopping, gift wrapping and working to fulfill orders for Morning Lavender too! Being on both sides, I know how important it is to deliver packages on time!

I have compiled some recent looks from my Instagram for your shopping pleasure and in case you need some outfit inspiration:

GIFT GUIDE FOR HIM

I know my ladies feel me when I say it’s really hard to shop for guys. If you are like my hubs, you have every gadget you could possibly afford and then you have tools you are swear are functional and necessary to making our lives better. I mean why do we need the Nest when I can get new shoes?!! Ok I’m kidding – that thing has saved me from getting out of bed to adjust the temperature at night. So when it comes to shopping for guys, I think us ladies need some extra moral support so I’ve put together some creative and masculine ideas (in a variety of price ranges) that any guy in your life (hubs, dad, brother, coworker, etc…) would be happy to have in my opinion and based on being around my hubs.

GIFTS FOR HIM UNDER $100

I don’t know about you ladies, but I find it seriously hard to shop for my guy! Guys seem to want very little or the things they do want are a tad unrealistic – boat, bike, car, etc… So when it comes to gifts, I try to get them things they can’t or won’t buy for themselves. My husband isn’t much of clothes shopper (which is a good balance for us) so I usually spoil him with things I think he would look good in. Here are some of my picks – all from retailers that offer last minute shipping!
