A couple of weeks ago, we featured several beauty products already marked down for Nordstrom Cardmembers’ exclusive early access ahead of the regular run of the department store chain’s anniversary sale. Well the sale’s been open to all since July 19 and is actually on its final five days. So before it’s done and gone, we’re sharing a few more deals we think you’d like, especially on sneakers, sunglasses, and versatile pieces of luggage – all still very timely and perfectly suited for summer. Oh and incidentally, we recommend you check back on their site regularly because they replenish their sale catalogue with new arrivals all the time.

Another thing you should know (if you don’t already), is that Nordstrom offers a host of super-convenient options for you to get your merchandise. Aside from Free Shipping and Free Returns, they also let you Buy Online and Pick Up in Store. How does it work?  It’s literally as easy as one, two, and three:

  1. Set your store. You can do this by going to “Pick Up in Store” above the products while looking at a category or search results.
  2. Purchase online. You’ll receive an email confirmation from your selected store once your order is ready for pickup.
  3. Pick up in store. New York City customers get the extra privilege of collecting their orders 24/7 at Nordstrom Men’s Store.

For Her

1. Kate Spade Large Shirley Crossbody Bag

If you’re one of the countless women who adore Kate Spade bags, then you should definitely take advantage of Nordstrom’s ongoing Anniversary Sale to snap up this large Shirley Crossover. Measuring 10″W x 10″H x 2″D with a 20″ – 23″ strap drop, it makes an ideal everyday handbag. It features a top zip closure and has exterior zip and slip pockets. In beautiful pebbled leather and currently at $82.10 off, choose from basic Black, Hot Chili red, or Light Fawn on Nordstrom.

Promising Review: “Perfect size messenger/crossbody bag. I bought this during the Anniversary sale and I’m so glad I did! It’s the perfect size I was looking for. The extra pockets are so useful and the main pocket is big enough for a full size wallet (I actually have a Michael Kors that I use). I keep my iPhone in the back pocket so it’s easy to access when needed. I also put my compact, 2 lipsticks, a notepad and pen, and my keys…and I still have room in my bag. I bought the light fawn color (which goes with everything). My mom loved it and I got her the red. I love that I can use it every day without having to carry too many things in my bag (which caused backaches and shoulder pain).” – TrishS13

2. Very Dior 51mm Round Sunglasses

In a classic shape and design that’ll never go out of style, these round Dior sunnies are understated enough to remain elegant while still evoking runway chic. Quilted temples and metallic insets that frame the lenses add the perfect finishing touches to these Italian specs. Made with fully UV protected gradient nylon lenses and available in Black or Dark Havana, they’re currently at 33% off on Nordstrom.

Promising Review: “Love them!!! Bought these in Dark Havana color during the anniversary sale and do not regret it. They are a perfect frame size with dark lenses. Thus far I’ve worn them and have received compliments each time. So happy I got a great deal.” – Lindsey88_

3. Pendleton Port Madison Hooded Raincoat

With storm flaps, a dipped back hem, and critically sealed seams, this hooded raincoat is sure to keep you dry if you’re ever caught in a sudden downpour. Lined in stylish tartan plaid, it’s made of 59% cotton and 41% polyester blend that’s lightweight and breathable. It features a front two-way zip closure with snap placket, front button-flap pockets as well as an interior patch pocket, interior rib-knit cuffs, and a cinch-cord hood. You can get it in Black, Navy, or Ponderosa at almost $100 less its regular price but only until August 4 at Nordstrom.

Promising Review: “Great Hooded Rain Jacket – Very nice rain jacket, perfect over sweaters in our rainy climate. The long tail in back is stylish and practical. The fit is definitely true to size, I ordered a size larger and debating sizing down but like the extra room for layering.” – Gatsby7

4. Nike Free TR 8 Premium Training Shoe

For training that’s unencumbered and free of distraction, the Nike Free TR8 is designed to give you comfortable yet dynamic locked-in support thanks to the brand’s revolutionary Flywire cables. Layers of 3D mesh and perforated cushioning keep the sock upper flexible and breathable while the removable cushioned insole allows for custom orthotics. Nike Free sole mimics the natural movement of your foot with every stride and the flatter heel works with flex grooves in the sole for improved traction during squats, running sprints, or cross-training. Currently at 25% off until August 4th at Nordstrom.

Promising Review: “Great lightweight shoe. So lightweight and they hug my feet. I’m a 9, but when I calculated my size for these it said 8.5, so that’s what I got and they are perfect.” – Runwaymom

5. Adidas Gazelle Sneaker

Originally designed as a training shoe for top athletes in 1991, this iconic sneaker from Adidas has been updated with a sleeker, narrower silhouette for casual wear. Retaining the classic contrasting three stripes as well as heel tab of the original, this lace-up sports a removable insole and a cushioned footbed. Built to be unisex, packaging reflects Men’s or Women’s sizing. Do note however, that this does run large so it’s best to order the next size down. Get it for $20 less at Nordstrom until August 4.

Promising Review: “Classic comfy sneaker – so happy to see these on sale! I’m normally a size 6 and got a size 5.5 and they fit nicely. Love the classic styling and they will go with so many outfits for all seasons. I’m a Physical Therapist and on my feet, up and down, all day long. These shoes required no break in time, comfy from the start. The laces loosen throughout the day, no biggie.” – Jessika09

Promising Reviews:

“I bought theses for my husband and he loves them. Great fit, style and color. He likes how the gradient is lighter at the bottom. Makes using his cell phone easier while wearing the sunglasses.” – MLJ60

Promising Review: “Not only are these comfortable as all get up, they look good! I ended up accidentally hiking in these in the Muir Woods, traction was on point, comfort was there. Not a single scuff and the dust was easily wiped away with a microfiber. I know this is a crime against the AirMax laws and sneaker heads are cringing but these! Buy them. They even look nice with slim dress pants and a crisp white button up.” – SohaibJi

4. Jack Purcell Ox Sneaker

With a removable insole and a smart OrthoLite® footbed, this classic low-cut sneaker is equipped to provide all-day comfort despite its tough canvas construction. In a versatile Obsidian Blue that’s easy to pair with denims, khakis, and shorts, they’re currently 34% off at Nordstrom.

Promising Reviews:

“Can’t go wrong with these. Classic, attractive, comfortable and true to size. I wear these almost every day!” – NickPtown

5. Onitsuka Tiger Serrano Sneaker

Step out in retro style in a pair of these Serrano sneakers from iconic Onitsuka Tiger, featuring contrast-color stripes that evoke a cool, vibrant spirit. These imported shoes do tend to run small so if you’re between sizes, it’s best to go with the next one up. In two retro-inspired colorways – Independence Blue/White and a White/Black/White combo, order until August 4 to avail of the $25 anniversary sale discount at Nordstrom.

Promising Review: “Best basic sneaker! This is the only sneaker my son will wear. They are great quality; unlike other sneakers he’s had, he outgrows his Tigers before they wear out. Thanks for putting this color in Anniversary Sale – he loves it!” – Lisalovesnordies

Tumi for Travel

1. Tumi V3 International 22-Inch Expandable Spinner Carry-On

Travel in comfort, style, and security with this ultra-lightweight and water-resistant carry-on spinner from Tumi. Crafted from a tough multilayer polycarbonate alloy, this cabin and concourse-ready piece is equipped with 360-degree swiveling wheels for effortless maneuverability.

It features two-way zip-around closure with integrated TSA lock and is outfitted with Tumi Tracer, a unique 20-digit number affixed to the case and registered in a database that helps you recover your luggage should it be lost or stolen. Get it at just under $200 off while the anniversary sale is underway at Nordstrom.

Promising Review: “This is a very well made carry on that should last many years. The price is a high, even at the sale price, but it is a better product than the luggage that cost a fraction of the price.” – FrankBevalaqua

2. Tumi Rivas Nylon Backpack

Spacious enough to hold a 13-inch laptop along with various other electronic devices, accessories, books, and a few pieces of clothing, Tumi’s Rivas Nylon Backpack is a great bag for travel or work. Sophisticated and lightweight, it comes with multiple compartments including an interior padded laptop sleeve with snap-tab closure, a smartphone pouch, and exterior zip pockets for effortless organization. It sports an adjustable drawstring under a top flap with adjustable buckle closure as well as a top carry handle and adjustable backpack straps. Made of durable nylon and adorned with leather trim upgrades for a polished, all-season look. Available in sleek Iron or striking Mulberry at 33% off until August 4th at Nordstrom.

Promising Review: “Not too big, not too small – just the right size. Perfect size. It’s small enough so that I don’t overload it, which I tend to do. Big enough for notebooks, random accessory bags, a sweatshirt, and electronic device (slim laptop). I’m using it as a carry on for a trip. I love all the zipper access on the sides, the key fob, and the nice little pocket for a water bottle inside — it has an extra water resistant type of fabric in case of leaks. The straps, zippers, closures are EXCELLENT, very high quality and perform well.” – cc5812

3. Tumi Voyageur Just in Case Travel Tote

We love it when a brand crafts items that serve multiple needs for various scenarios to create products that are versatile, functional, and still very fashionable. Tumi has certainly done so with their Voyageur Just in Case Travel Tote, which, as the name says, is quite handy for unexpected things. Be it an unscheduled sleepover or more vacation loot than you’d intended, it’s another terrific companion for work or travel. Measuring 19″W x 18 ½”H x 9″D, its interior has an extra-large capacity while its 7 ½-inch strap makes it comfortable to carry over the shoulder. Featuring a two-way top-zip closure and outfitted with an add-a-bag sleeve, it also folds down and packs into its own storage pouch, making it an ideal backup easily stashed in your suitcase or handbag. Enjoy 33% off when you shop it until August 4 at Nordstrom.

Promising Review: “Great tote. Must have for trips! Love this travel tote. Came across it while shopping during the anniversary sale and decided it would be great for my upcoming trip to London and Paris. It was better than I expected. Very high quality nylon and well made. It easily folds into the pouch. Makes a lovely, full size tote that I can carry on or check in if necessary with extra things I get on our trip. Highly recommend.” – dnasmyth
