It’s the most fabulous time of the year: the 2023 Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale, duh. For those who don’t know, it’s the retailer's most popular shopping event, which runs in tiers from July 17 through August 6 (or you can sign up as a Nordy Club member to get early access to deals starting July 11). Naturally, you’ve got your eyes on the TikTok-famous Béis Weekend Duffle Bag (now 25 percent off)—but did you know that Nordstrom is also hiding a slew of high-end homewares and designer beauty sets? We’re talking exclusive deals on everything from the fan-favorite Augustinus Bader Refresh Set (reduced from $184 to $140) to a Parachute Linen Duvet Cover (reduced from $280 to $225). So below, find 35 items under $200 to snag before they sell out (because one can never have too many Dipytique candles).

Best Throw Blanket
When we tell you that people wait all year for this throw blanket to go on sale, we’re not exaggerating. Its plush microfiber construction is buttery soft, fade-resistant and shed-free (and you can throw it in the wash without it shrinking, pilling or wrinkling). Oh, and did we mention that it’s available in a ton of new patterns, inclduing Desert Oasis, Split Stripes, Petals, In the Wild, Fauna and more (all of which are included in the sale)?
Best Long Sleeve
Here, a lightweight crewneck made from 100 percent cotton (available in five dreamy colors). At 30 percent off, we’re grabbing one in every color to make sure we always have something to wear before, after and during workouts when the temperature drops
Best Skincare Set
Augustinus Bader skincare has been trending everywhere for a reason: the brand uses stem-cell technology that’s been clinically proven to smooth, hydrate and plump fine lines. So, in this set, you get three (travel-sized) best-sellers for the price of one: The Rich Cream (highly concentrated, deeply moisturizing, revives complexion and soothes dryness), The Cream (light, refreshing, leaves skin feeling rejuvenated in humid climates) and The Eye Cream (improves dark undereye circles, puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles).
Best Bath Towel
Behold: a bathroom upgrade that’ll create a total spa-like feel. These Turkish cotton towels have a super absorbent construction that’s extra plush on the skin—and it’s durable enough to hold up in the wash without shedding or tearing. It’s worth noting, however, that Parachute x Nordstrom exclusives rarely go on sale—and you’ll definitely want to snag some hand towels, bath towels and washcloths while they’re 30 percent off.
Best Mini Handbag
This Kate Middleton- and Meghan Markle-approved mini bag is made from water-resistant nylon, so on top of being totally on-trend, it’s weatherproof and easy to clean. Plus, it’s trimmed with an elegant leather detail that adds dimension to its understated silhouette and it comes with removable crossbody strap for extra versatility. Our two cents? Snag this guy before it inevitably goes out of stock (presumably before the sale ends in August).
For the first time (ever), Birkenstock is making its way into the sale—and you won’t want to miss this slide sandal at $40 off. It features a single, oversized buckle that cinches at the center, and the glossy neutral leather basically goes with anything in your closet. (Or, if you’re more of a two-strap girl, the Arizona Big Buckle Slide Sandal also happens to be included in this year’s sale).
Best Pajama Set
One item PureWow readers can’t get enough of? This menswear-inspired pajama set, which includes a button-up top with shorts. The fit is loose enough to give you plenty of wiggle room without bunching up—and the Tencel modal material is not only super soft, but cooling (and perfect for hot sleepers during peak summer).
Best Duffle Bag
This weekender bag scored 94 points out of 100 in a PureWow100 review because it “has everything [you’d] look for in a travel accessory,” per wellness director Sarah Stiefvater. “The bag’s main compartment is roomy, with one large zippered pocket, two small zippered pockets and a Velcro-lined laptop sleeve inside…The real selling point, in my opinion, is the spacious zippered compartment at the bottom of the bag, which is perfect for storing shoes, toiletry bags or even laundry.” She also adds: “Visually, the bag [is] totally minimal and timeless…You can also choose to carry it as a top handle bag or over your shoulder with the detachable strap.”
Best Crossbody Bag
Classic, convertible and perfect for everyday use, this Coach crossbody is begging for a spot in your bag rotation. The fold-over flap looks extra sleek, thanks to its rich pebbled leather construction and polished logo hardware. Plus, it’s fit with a detachable chain strap, so you can use it as a crossbody by day and a clutch by night.
Best Candle Set
ICYMI, Diptyque is *the* candle brand if you’re looking for sophisticated, upscale fragrances—and this fruity and floral candle set is a must-have as we transition into fall. It features four full-sized candles—including roses, Figuier, mimosa and Bais—and it can create a fresh yet inviting feel (not to mention that you’ll rarely find these best-sellers discounted for under $120).
Following suit with the brand’s signature, minimalist designs, we love how this Monica Vinader necklace can add a polished touch to your neckline as a stand-alone accessory or layered with other necklaces. Add to that, the fact that every piece from this line comes with a ‘no-questions asked’ five-year warranty and it’s eco-friendly with sustainably sourced materials.
For anyone who’s still rocking those ratty t-shirts from 2016, this wardrobe staple is for you. The tee has a relaxed fit with a raw trim that can be dressed up or dressed down—and the cotton-modal blend means it’ll feel just as breezy as it looks. Not only is it available in 11 colors, but it’s also on sale for $13 (making now the perfect time to grab a few for mixing and matching).
Best Belt Bag
Sticking with the theme of best-selling bags that rarely go on sale: This minimalist belt bag is another edition your everyday wardrobe could use. The matte design has a synthetic neoprene finish that's water-resistant with a recycled lining and the interior/exterior card pockets are a major bonus for convenience. (And don’t even get us started on the stunning Ash Blue colorway.)
Best Hair Set
It’s no secret that sleeping on silk can reduce frizz and hair breakage, and now, thanks to this 10-pack of silk hair ties, you can protect your hair from damage and breakage in the daytime, too. The ties are made with the same that’s silk used in the brand's fan-favorite pillowcases—and each one has a wide surface area that’s designed to be gentle on your locks (all while reducing ridges that you get with regular hair ties).
Lined with UGG’s signature sheepskin footbed, this genuine shearling slipper is about as cozy as it gets. Add to that, the fact that the textile is made from a moisture-wicking wool blend that will help prevent sweaty feet (gross) and it’s available in four colors, including burnt cedar, charcoal, creamy natural and pink glow.
SPF is essential to your daily regimen—and this set should be your new BFF. The three-pack includes a full size Play Everyday Lotion with an SPF 50 (and it’s formulated with a non-greasy finish that’s water- and sweat- resistant). Beyond that, it also includes a full- and travel-sized tube of the popular Unseen Sunscreen, which has a silky, invisible finish that makes it a great primer underneath your foundation.
Best Decorative Blanket
Pom Pom at Home
Our go-to bedding brand to create that luxurious, laid-back linen look? Pom Pom at Home. This chunky fringe knit throw can add a touch of sophistication to the foot of the bed or an arm of the sofa (and it’s totally machine washable).
Multiple PureWow staffers own and rave about these leggings (some even have multiple pairs), and PureWow readers appear to be just as enamored. They offer just the right amount of smoothing and support while still remaining comfy enough for a full day of walking, dining or hanging about. One thing to note, however: Many reviewers suggested ordering one size up from what the size chart suggests for a more comfortable, less constricting fit.
If there’s one accessory you should scoop before it sells out, make it this cashmere scarf. It's made from half recycled cashmere and half cashmere, so it's soft, cozy and sustainable—and the 82-inch length gives it a cushy oversized fit. Plus, it’s available in tons of rich colors, including black rock, grey steel heather, purple betta and tan doeskin heather.
Best Cologne Set
Yup, this cologne set is definitely waiting to be gifted to your dad (or brother, boyfriend, best friend…you get the picture). It comes with five, 0.3-ounce fragrances, including peony & blush suede, English pear & freesia, wood sage & sea salt, nectarine blossom & honey and mimosa & cardamom cologne. The cherry on top? Per the brand, the scents “can be worn solo or layered for truly individual effects,” if you crave a more custom scent.
Pickleball lovers, this one goes out to you. The dropped shoulders and oversized fit give this crewneck a throwback silhouette (pickleball had its first popularity surge in the sixties, FWIW) and the cozy fleece makes it essential for outdoor matches in cooler months.
Best Decorative Candle
For those who don’t know, Anthro’s signature Capri Blue Volcano scent is known to lure shoppers like moths to a flame with notes of tropical fruits, sugared oranges, lemons, limes and lightly exotic mountain greens. And lucky for you, the cult-favorite is now reduced by 31 percent at Nordstrom—and it comes in a dreamy watercolor vessel that’ll look great on the coffee table.
You know autumn is upon us when you start seeing two things: Pumpkin spice lattes and chelsea boots. This pair covers the latter, where its block heel and durable lug sole is complimented by a signature rear pull-tab. It’s available in leather or suede (with a grey suede option)—but feel free to grab two pairs while they’re discounted at 40 percent off.
This highchair—now 25 percent off— is a reviewer favorite with a 4.6-star rating for its versatility. It has five recline positions, four tray positions and eight different height settings, so you can use it as an infant seat with a cozy inlay, a classic highchair or as a booster seat with a tray. The best part? It has a removable, machine-washable seat pad that’s easy to wipe down or throw into the laundry after a messy meal.
Best Makeup Set
A makeup set that includes a mascara, lash primer and lip balm—along with a cosmetics bag—and make it Dior. This two-in-one set can take your eyes and lips to the next level with a lash primer serum that can create an instant fanned-out effect and the best-selling Dior Addict Lip Glow that’ll revive your lip’s natural color. Perfect for anyone who’s looking to carry a natural glowy look, post-summer.
Best Sheet Set
Crisp and cool to the touch, this set of 200-thread-count percale cotton sheets are a hot sleeper’s dream (with a hotel-quality feel). Not only does it include a fitted sheet, flat sheet and two pillowcases, but you also have four color options, including white, grey vapor, grey lunar and grey taupe.
Best Sock Set
If you haven’t experienced the magic of Bombas socks, you’re definitely missing out. Mainly, they’re designed so no one will know you’re wearing them. Yet, what makes these ‘no shows’ different is that they have a honeycomb arch support system, a seamless toe, and a cushioned footbed, so they’ll never slip or slide. And of course, it comes in a three pack with a white, purple and baby pink pair that’ll last year after year.
Best Brightening Serum
This Sunday Riley set features a full-size Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment and a travel size C.E.O. Vitamin C Brightening Serum that’ll help keep your summer glow, year round. The Good Genes includes lactic acid, which deeply exfoliates the skin, while the C.E.O.’s vitamin C serum targets dark spots and dullness. And at 31 percent off? Sign. Us. Up.
Treasure & Bond
Whether you’re jetting off to the Riviera or lunching in the Hamptons this summer, one thing’s for sure: You’re going to need a hat. More specifically, this Treasure & Bond number that’s made from wool-kissed felt with a suede band wrapping the crown.
Best Plush Throw
Insanely soft to the touch and available in seven fresh colors; a blanket that definitely deserves a spot in the couch rotation. (And you might as well grab two while it’s marked down to $20 a pop.)
Best Jewelry Storage
Jewelry storage, but make it chic. This zippered box features multiple organization compartments for all of your baubles—and it’s available in nine colors and patterns that’ll look just as good on your nightstand as it does in the dresser drawer.
