People freak out over the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale because it's a chance to score a discount on new fall clothes, bags, shoes and beauty products before the goods even have the chance to hit the sales floor. In that respect, the event differs from Nordstrom's half-yearly sale, which offers a markdown on styles that have been out for a few months. The Anniversary Sale dates are Friday, July 20th through Sunday, August 5th, and Nordstrom card holders are invited to shop pre-sale starting as early as this Wednesday. All stores are participating (Glendale Galleria, Topanga Plaza, South Bay, Westside Pavilion, The Oaks, The Grove, Santa Monica Place); and online starting at midnight PST. Browse the Anniversary Sale catalog here (participating brands include Marc Jacobs, Rag & Bone, La Mer, Rebecca Minkoff, NARS and Alexis Bittar) and prepare to line up on the morning of the 20th to get in.
