Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale: December/January/May

Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale is back, with thousands of items up to 50 percent off. There are plenty of summer essentials from brands like Madewell, Gucci, and New Balance as well as deep discounts on less-seasonal items, appliances, and skin care. So whether you’re looking for a new swimsuit to wear this weekend, a lightweight down jacket for next fall, or a set of wine glasses to celebrate hosting your first dinner party in over a year, we’re sure you’ll find a bunch of options at prices that can’t be beat.

As we’ve seen with Nordstrom sales in the past, stock and sizes move quickly. So don’t wait too long if you see something you like.

Nordstrom doesn’t have very many sitewide sales during the year, but the highly anticipated Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is one of their biggest. The sale is a great opportunity to get up to 50 percent off women, men, and children’s apparel, home goods, and more. 

You can expect to shop hundreds of Nordstrom favorites on sale, from apparel and fashion, to beauty and home decor. If you have any favorite Nordstrom items or decor pieces on your list, this sale is the perfect chance to grab them at a fraction of the cost. In the meantime, we recommend bookmarking things you love to score them before they sell out.

Here are the Nordstrom items you should look out for:

Home Decor: Shop decor favorites from luxe cheese boards and oil diffusers to candles and decorative placemats. You'll find discounts on big-name brands like Rabbit, Voluspa, and more. Whether it's for your coffee table, bookcase, or credenza—you're bound to find something to fit your space.

Bedding: With summer around the corner, this sale is the perfect chance to swap out your bedding for a lighter option. Shop soft sheets, cozy pillows, and silk pillowcases for less during this sale.

Kitchen Goods: Stock up on kitchen must-haves from fry pans and dutch ovens, to small appliances and barware. You'll nab items from Le Creuset, All-Clad, and Vitamix at a fraction of the cost.

Keep in mind the Half Yearly sale does not include Nordstrom Rack. But don't fret—Nordstrom Rack often holds plenty of its own sales and has much wider clearance sections to begin with, so you'll also find great discounts there as well.

Nordstrom After Christmas Winter Sale: January

As far as end-of-season sales go, it doesn't get much better than Nordstrom's. At the moment, it has a number of sales running simultaneously, including a drool-worthy designer sale, a clearance sale, and a bevy of new markdowns.

As you know, there are a ton of sales that launch right after Christmas, but I, for one, am kind of tired of shopping then (believe it or not). But now that I've had a few weeks to recover from the holiday gift shopping mania, I'm ready to do a deep dive into the sales, starting with Nordstrom's extensive selection. 

Based on the amount of hype Nordstrom sales get (guilty), I'm actually pretty surprised by how many goods are still left to choose from. My cart is filled with loungewear (of course), shoes, chic sweaters, denim, and more, and I'm letting you in on all my secret finds. Scroll to shop with me.

The Nordstrom after-Christmas sale is offering an extra 25% off clearance items for up to 75% off total savings on select items. It's an amazing opportunity to score deals on big brands such as UGG, Nike, Barefoot Dreams, Hunter, Marc Jacobs, Rebecca Minkoff and more. Nordstrom Rack's gift shop is still live, too, and it's filled with items under $25 from Joe's Jeans, Slip, Free People, Michael Kors, Vans and more top brands. Plus, take an extra 25% off bedding, bath and home organization items through Jan. 17. Receive free shipping on orders over $89 and enjoy extended returns on holiday purchases. 

Nordstrom Memorial Day Sale: May

Memorial Day, originally created to honor veterans who've lost their lives while serving in the military, is a federal holiday observed annually on the last day of May. In 2021 Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 31 and in 2022 it will fall on May 30. The holiday weekend, which takes place during graduation season, has become known as the kickoff of all things summer with BBQs, outdoor activities and of course, the Memorial Day sales.

Memorial Day Weekend coincides with Nordstrom's highly-anticipated HALF-YEARLY SALE which runs through June 6.  Get up to 50% off on women's style, menswear and kids' fashion, plus fabulous home buys and designer deals - and you'll find up to 80% off on clearance items, too.

Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale 2021 is officially live and will run past Memorial Day weekend! Starting today, shop to save up to 50% off on select items in Women’s, Men, Kids and Home categories. We took a look at some of the deals and there are literally tens of thousands of sale items, more than we could ever try to cover. All we’ll say is make sure you give yourself plenty of time to browse their sale page. If you end up buying anything then remember free shipping and free returns are included on nearly anything you get. You also have the choice of curbside pickup with free gift wrapping at most locations. See their site for complete sale details and terms. Sale ends on June 6, 2021 or while supplies last. Good luck bargain hunting and have a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend!

Nordstrom Spring Sale: May/June

Nordstrom's Spring Sale has some of the best deals we've seen all year. We're talking discounts of up to 74 percent on thousands of items, including clothing, shoes, home decor, and travel accessories. Whether you're looking for a new pair of sandals just in time for summer or a great new travel bag, there's a deal for just about everyone at the big event.

Women who are looking to give their wardrobes a refresh for the warm weather should check out this cute Coach wristlet that is on sale for just $57 or this slinky camisole that's marked down to only $10. And there are tons of men's clothing and accessories on sale as well, including these Nike sneakers that are on sale for less than $100 and these cozy Polo Ralph Lauren shorts that are 25 percent off. 

Prices have also been slashed on tons of travel accessories like the expandable Tumi suitcase, Bose wireless earbuds, and this Victorinox backpack. And you can even stock up on discounted face masks and travel kits full of seat covers and sanitizing wipes before your next trip. 

And if you plan on hanging around the house and enjoying a staycation, the Nordstrom Spring Sale has you covered there too. You can hone your cooking skills with a Le Creuset dish that's marked down to $20 or a $200-off Viking pots and pans set. Or you can curl up under a cozy blanket and light a delicious-smelling Voluspa candle (both are currently on sale for 25 percent off). 

To help you get started, we combed through the entire sale and rounded up the best deals to shop from the big event. We suggest adding your favorite pieces to your shopping cart ASAP, as items are already selling out fast.

Getting first access to Anniversary Sale items is a huge perk. Things go out of stock QUICKLY during Early Access. They do restock items periodically throughout the sale, but there were so many pieces I regretted not buying before they sold out. Even if you don’t buy anything, it’s nice to have the option to see merchandise before the general public.

Nordstrom Labor Dale Sale: September

Nordstrom doesn’t have an official sale specifically for Labor Day, but they do have their annual Summer Sale that takes place over the holiday–so it’s kind of the same thing. To be honest, it doesn’t really matter what you call it, as long as the discounts are good.

From cute summer wrap dresses to classic aviator sunnies to a stylish one-piece that will take you through to the end of summer, there's a ton of seasonal deals to take advantage of. There's even some great prices on fall fashion staples, and beauty must-haves that you might've missed during the Anniversary Sale. But you only have a limited time to shop.

The department store is known for having amazing holiday sales. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale alone should be recognized as a national holiday if you ask us! But really, we can’t think of a better way to end our summer than with a little shopping spree at Nordstrom. That’s over a week of amazing deals and discount for you to shop.

FAQs about Nordstrom Sales Calendar

What is the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale?

Nordstrom doesn’t have very many sitewide sales during the year, but the highly anticipated Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is one of their biggest. The sale is a great opportunity to get up to 50 percent off women, men, and children’s apparel, home goods, and more.

When is the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale 2021?

The sale will run from May 26 through June 6, 2021. Like its name suggests, the Half Yearly sale takes place twice a year, once in the spring and once in late fall.

How Long is the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale?

This year's sale is 12 days. Last year the spring sale ran for 10 days, but the length has varied from year to year. In general, it runs somewhere between eight to 12 days, though the best deals are always at the start of the sale. Items tend to sell out, so if you know you want something, bookmark it.

Does Nordstrom Rack Also Participate in the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale?

No, Nordstrom Rack does not usually do the Half Yearly Sale, but they do hold sale events roughly once a month for around two to five days.

What's the Difference Between the Half Yearly Sale and the Anniversary Sale?

Unlike the Half Yearly Sale, Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is only held once a year. The Anniversary Sale is the retailer’s big summer sale and generally offers the best discounts all year on designer goods. This year, the Anniversary Sale is going to be held in July.

The Anniversary Sale also has discounts on newly released designs, not just the styles that are on their way out. The Half Yearly Sale, meanwhile, will generally offer discounts on more seasonal items, not the newest arrivals. 

Another difference between the two sales is that the Anniversary sale usually lets you preview the sales in advance and it lets people with the Nordstrom card shop the sale early. 

What Usually Goes on Sale?

There are a variety of products that usually go on sale during the Half Yearly Sale, including:

Apparel—As a retailer known for their fashion apparel, it’s probably no surprise that you can score some pretty great deals on clothes, but it's more than women’s clothes that go on sale. You’ll be able to find maternity wear, men’s clothes, kids essentials, and adorable baby outfits. You can also find discounts on shoes for the whole family. Some brands to look for include Levi’s, The North Face, Pippa & Julie, Barefoot Dreams, Zella, Steve Madden, and Ugg.

Car Seats and Strollers—Strollers, car seats, and combos of the two have gone on sale during past Half Yearly sales. So if you’re looking at baby gear brands that tend to run a little higher (such as Nuna, Maxi-Cosi, or Thule), this is your chance to buy the item at a good discount. 

When is Memorial Day?

Memorial Day is traditionally celebrated on the last Monday of May, and this year that falls on May 28.

When do Memorial Day sales actually begin?

Even though Memorial Day always falls on a Monday, tons of sales land early, especially in the age of the internet. Early-bird shoppers get first dibs on the deals, but those of you with the patience to hold out till the very end are rewarded with even deeper discounts (or flash promos that only happen on the day of). Meaning—now's the time to pounce on all the spring and summer fashion trends you’ve been eyeing for a Shot Girl Summer, or to spruce up your space with new decor and furniture, for less.

Does Nordstrom have sales on Cyber Monday?

Of course. There are plenty of amazing deals up for grabs in Nordstrom's Cyber Monday section. However, through December 1, clearance items will be marked down with an additional 25% off—meaning you have five days to pick up some epic gifts for the fam (and yourself, of course) at bargain prices. 

How do I shop Nordstrom Cyber Monday deals? 

You have three options: You can shop in-store if you really want to—but you can just as easily avoid the lines, and potential super-spreader events, by scoring even better deals online. (Yay, internet.) After placing your order, you can schedule a free pickup in person (or curbside) if there’s a Nordstrom nearby. Or you can opt for the most convenient option and have your picks delivered straight to your doorstep.

If you’re not sure what to do, shopping online is definitely the most sensible way to secure everything in your cart—especially since Nordstrom offers free standard shipping at all times, with delivery within three to six business days. This perk is also what makes Nordstrom one of the most reliable places to get your gifting done if you’re worried about pandemic-related delivery delays. 

What will be on sale during Nordstrom's Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales?

Thanks to Nordstrom's Cyber Deals 2020 preview, we now know that Nordies shoppers will find thousands of top items on sale during Black Friday and Cyber Monday for up to 50 percent off. There will be markdowns on brands like Ugg, Adidas, Hunter, Kate Spade New York, Levi's, Bobbi Brown, and more. Looking for home decor, kitchenware, and travel items? Nordstrom will be slashing prices in those categories, too! Be on the lookout for Nest scented diffusers, Staub's cast iron cocotte, Barefoot Dreams throw blankets, an All-Clad waffle maker, and more.

Is it better to wait for Cyber Monday sales?

No matter when you decide to start shopping, you really can't go wrong! With thousands of incredible offers to choose from, you'll find some of the best deals of the season going on all week long.
