Some items may not be discounted as much as other department stores but some brands are reduced even more. Nordstrom is also notorious for price matching. If you see an item priced less at another store make sure to contact customer service and Nordstrom will match the price in most situations.
This season we found several items marked down further than in most other stores. A tweed Loewe bag is an unprecedented 60% off. (Not the hottest style but we haven't seen any on sale.) Dolce & Gabbana is discounted just 40% at most retailers but this super chic pant suit and this tulip a-line dress is 60% off or $900 from $2275.
The SPACE sale section (a collection of avant-garde designers) might even be better than Barneys. A Phelan pleated knit dress is $1000 from $2600 and this Stella McCartney embellished jacquard shift dress is $1400 from $3400. We wish she did more versions of these shift dresses because the fit is amazing and the styling is classic. We also absolutely love this Simone Rocha long coat that looks both warm and stylish and is reduced to $1100 from $2700. We are finding it hard to resist this black and pink faux fur coat from Shrimps that's reduced to $450 from $1120.
Most of the best bags and shoes seem to be already gone. There is only one size option for this pair of Proenza boots and these Marni pumps. That's what happens when great style shoes get discounted to 60% off.
We suggest you snag what you like now because Nordstrom's online discounts don't usually dip below 60%. If you're shopping in the stores-- that's another story.
