There are a ton of things to shop for, but since my 5 sustainable brands to shop at Nordstrom has been so popular, I thought a post on the sustainable and clean beauty products in the Anniversary Sale was a worthy read!
Very little seems to be happening regularly this year but thankfully Nordstrom is still having their annual Anniversary Sale. It’s at a different time and it’s happening a bit differently this year, but it’s nevertheless going on.
If you’re newish to the AS (Anniversary Sale), then just know it’s a great time to get items for late summer and fall that are drastically discounted before they go on sale like normal. It seems weird to shop turtleneck sweaters in August, but grab your ice water and let’s get to it.
Sustainable Items in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
So they did something different this year. Bsides moving the sale from July to August, the sale is also going to happen in “tiers,” opening up to the various levels of cardholders at different times before opening up to the general public (like normal). The dates are:
Icon: Shop Starting August 4
Ambassador: Shop Starting August 7
Influencer: Shop Starting August 10
Insider: Shop Starting August 13
Sale open to everyone August 19
The other thing that changed is that you can now preview all the items before the sale starts. You can add items to your wishlist so when the sale opens up for you, you can quickly move the items to your cart and click buy!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a great sale and those who are into the sale are INTO the sale (like me!). Regardless of whether you’re looking for sustainable clothing or clean beauty, there’s something for whatever you need.
One helpful tip is that items will quickly sell out, but because it’s a sale, there are a lot of returns, so be sure to check back daily for sizes to comeback in stock!
Clean Beauty Products
I mentioned in my post about finding clean beauty brands that clean brands can be a bit more expensive, so the Anniversary Sale is a great time to take advantage of trying those that are on sale!
Here is a good selection of a few favorite brands and products. I’ve noted a few below that are of particular interest!
This Sunday Riley Good Genes set is a gold mine. Everyone I know who’s used the serum swears by it, so I’m excited to try it out!!
If you haven’t tried reusable face cloths, this set for less than $20 is where to start. The face wipes are washable and you’ll never have to buy them again. Use them for applying toner, oils, astringents, and moisturizers. It even comes with a little bag to store dirty pads until you can wash them!
Eileen Fisher is one of my favorite brands right now (and for a while). I love their long-lasting clothes that scream eternal style. Their company also gets cooler and cooler by the day, constantly trying to use better materials.
If you haven’t tried any of her designs yet, I’d say to start with the basics like this t-shirt or these black jogger pants. Then once you fall in love with the brand, you can try something like this cable-knit sweater or this open front shawl.
Pay attention to the size charts as all EF designs run big – at times up to 2 sizes.
Sustainable Clothes on Sale
Nordstrom has long been a favorite store of mine (it runs in my family), so I’m excited every time I learn of a new sustainable and/or ethical brand being sold on their website and in stores. I listed out 5 sustainable brands at Nordstrom here, but they do sell more than just those!
And since we’re looking primarily for items that will last season after season while shopping, you can’t go wrong with a classic button down white shirt, a great pair of white tennis shoes (made from recycled fabric and wild rubber), or even ankle socks with a buy-one-give-one business model!
