Disecting Nordstrom's Half-Yearly Sale

The Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale is back. This is Nordstrom's biggest sale of the year. The discount is 50% off most all Spring and Summer merchandise. The sale only runs through June 4 (thereafter another markdown begins).





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.

Since Nordstrom added more luxury designers it's become a great place to find things that might be gone from other retailers. We were very surprised to find this classic floral print Gucci dress and double-G silk blouse reduced 50% off. There are also a few Gucci bags and shoes on markdown. This "Guccy" crossbody is $1200 from $1800 and Yankee slides are $590 from $980.

Beyond Gucci, this Off-White sport shirt and a Maison Margiela reflective tote are 40% off. Static knit Prada sneakers are $455 from $760 and these Prada pool slides are just $150.  Some less expensive options include a host of 50% off markdowns from homegirl SomethingNavy. This puff-shoulder top is $32, a chambray romper is $45, high-waisted jeans are $45 and a little girl's smocked dress is $25.

There is usually another markdown but Nordstrom doesn't usually drop prices below 60%. If you're shopping in the stores-- that's another story.
