In short, it’s a really good sale. Our team here are Reviewed—Samantha, Courtney, Isabelle, and myself—specializes in hunting down good deals online, but we’re also shoppers ourselves. This Nordstrom sale? Well, let’s just say, this is one of those sales events that we’re all really pumped to have the jump on.
So whether you’re looking for some new dresses to spruce up your work wardrobe or you just fall in love with these Hunter boots that are on sale the moment you see them (like we did), here are 18 of our favorite finds for this awesome sale.
1. Leggings you will want to live in
Nordstrom’s fitness brand Zella has incredible leggings that deserve to be up in the ranks of Lululemon, Athleta, and ALO—even though they’re a fraction of the price. They are great quality, and they don’t tear or get itchy. I own them, along with many yoga pants from different stores like the brands above, and they are just as good, if not better. Whenever Zella leggings are on sale, I either buy them or regret not doing so. Right now, they’re 40%, so act fast—these will definitely sell out.

This dress has been seen all over social media, and will be a great addition to your nighttime wardrobe. Plus, with nearly 3,000 reviews, you know this style is trending and people will be asking where you got this thing. It can be casual with a cardigan or you can dress it up, making it the perfect spring and summer wardrobe staple. Not to mention, it’s on sale.

3. This backpack that’s so on-trend right now
For the finishing touch on your 90s babe look, you need to have this leather backpack. Surprisingly roomy and really cute, this backpack comes in black or brown (technically “acorn”) and has a vintage feel, so it’s the perfect way to tie your ensemble together.
Get the Rebecca Minkoff Small Kate Leather Backpack for $196.80 (Save $131.20)
4. A simple knit maxi dress
A maxi dress is an essential item for summer, and this one has over 1,700 4.5 star reviews. I mean, you might as well get one that you know people love. Not only is this a hidden Nordstrom gem, but it is also on sale for 25% off. For vacation, work, barbecues, and nights out, this dress can work with them all. Pair it with a denim jacket and you can rock it during spring and fall, too.
Get the Nordstrom Knit Maxi Dress for $38.90 (Save $13.10)
5. A jumpsuit that’s fashion blogger approved
When fashion blogger Julia Engel announced she was launching a fashion line, we were both excited and nervous for our wallets. The Gal Meets Glam collection is modern, sophisticated, elegant, and romantic. Even better, you can shop the Gal Meets Glam at Nordstrom, and right now, a select few of the dresses and jumpsuits are on sale—like this adorable jumpsuit. We’ve seen it on sale before, but now it’s even lower at 50% off, so you really have no excuse not to buy it.
Get the Gal Meets Glam Collection Nicole Square Neck Jumpsuit for $88.98 (Save $89.02)
6. Classic tees you’ll wear all summer long
I’m pretty sure Madewell makes the most flattering v-neck t-shirts. They look casual, come in a ton of colors, and will always be stylish. I literally want one in every color, but that can add up quickly, so whenever these t-shirts are on sale, I pick up a new color. They’ve become a staple during spring and summer (and fall and winter, too).
Get the Madewell Whisper Cotton V-Neck Pocket Tee for $11.70 (Save $7.80)
7. This chic bag you’ll want to wear with everything
Here at Reviewed, we’re kind of obsessed with Madewell. You already know how much we dig their classic tees, but let me tell you: it’s accessories like this crossbody bag that make us really flip out. Seriously, just look at how cute it is. It’s small, but not as tiny as it might seem—you can still totally fit a Kindle and your wallet and a smartphone in there and still have room. The light, minimalist design for this bag makes it perfect when paired with a denim jacket and a summer dress.
Get the Madewell The Simple Half Moon Crossbody Bag for $58.80 (Save $39.20)
8. A denim jacket that ages like a fine wine
I recently transitioned to pretty much exclusively buying Levi jeans. The quality of their denim is unparalleled in my opinion, which makes sense because the Levi’s brand has been around for over a hundred years, so they’ve had plenty of time to perfect the art of making amazing pieces. What I love most about my Levis is that they actually conform to your body more and more after each wash, getting better with age. Their denim jackets are no exception; they’ll likely last you a lifetime. We love the faded black wash because it’s easy to style and will look great even over a simple t-shirt.

9. A lace dress that’s perfect for weddings
If you have any spring or summer weddings coming up, then you need to get this dress. It’s flattering, stylish, and classic, so you’ll still want to wear it to an event other than your third cousin’s wedding. With almost 1,000 reviews and 4 stars, the dress comes in a ton of colors and I think I need it in at least three.
Get the ASTR the Label Lace Midi Dress for $66.75 (Save $22.25)
10. These hugely popular throw blankets
You can never have too many throw blankets. Even though it’s getting warm out, they’re a must-have for any Netflix binge session or even just for taking quick naps on the couch. Right now at Nordstrom, you can save on some of the retailer’s most popular throw blankets—including the super plush Kennebunk Bliss throw blanket, which has a cult-like following on the site—and make your next veg day really count.
- Get the Nordstrom at Home Kennebunk Bliss Plush Throw for $23.70 (Save $15.80)
- Get the Nordstrom at Home Cuddle Up Faux Fur Throw for $74.49 (Save $141.51)
11. A pair of iconic sneakers—at a ridiculously good price
These sneakers have been around forever, but you don’t have to be a skater to still love them. With their legendary checkerboard pattern and lace-up style, these Vans stay popular for a reason—namely, they look great with virtually all casual street fashion and they feel comfortable too, even if you have high arches.
Get the Men’s Vans Era Sneaker for $29.96-$32.96 (Save $19.99-$21.99)
12. A cult-favorite Dutch oven
You’ve probably heard of or seen a Le Creuset Dutch oven at some point in your life. They’re like KitchenAid stand mixers—an iconic kitchen staple for any adult who enjoys cooking. A Dutch oven is essential to any kitchen because they can literally do it all. You can make soups, saute veggies, or even bake a loaf of bread in there. When we tested dutch ovens, we found the Le Creuset to be one of our favorites. Clearly these Dutch ovens are hot right now, so you can’t go wrong investing in one. Nordstrom carries a ton of different sizes and color options too, so you can find the one that’s suitable for your kitchen.
- Get the Le Creuset Signature 7 1/4 Quart Round Enamel Cast Iron French/Dutch Oven for $385.00 (Save $96)

13. Hunter rain boots in spring colors
Stating the obvious, but a good pair of wellies makes a rainy day actually bearable. Instead of getting trench foot in soaked sneakers, you can have fun splashing in puddles knowing your feet will remain totally dry. Hunters are my go-to for rain boots, as they’re a recognizable brand that combines fashion and function in the best ways. Made out of quality, flexible rubber, and with tons of colors to choose from, it’s easy to find a pair to fit your inclement weather needs.

14. These booties for both work and play
My shoe collection might be half booties at this point, but I don’t care and I can’t be stopped. They make any outfit look better, whether you pair them with skinny jeans, a casual dress, or a mini skirt. I love expanding my collection with different patterned booties, like snakeskin or floral ones, but I wear my black or beige booties most often. These ones by Steve Madden are a versatile choice that you’re sure to get a lot of wear out of, especially because the heel is the perfect size to go from day to night.
Get the Steve Madden Rookie Bootie $59.96 (Save $39.99)
15. A popular pullover top
I love wearing short sleeves in the summer, but as soon as the sun sets I am chilly. That’s why I try to bring a light pullover with me, and this one fits the bill. It’s chic and has an adorable twisted embellishment, and more than 1,200 reviewers agree. I could see wearing this on a chilly beach walk or by the campfire—it’s cute and casual.
Get the Gibson Cozy Twist Front Pullover for $29.40 (Save $19.60)
16. A classic yet stylish leather watch
One thing every woman needs to have? A good watch. This super charming timepiece from Tory Burch is one of the biggest steals in this list, since it has a super clear, easy-to-read sapphire crystal face and is made with soft, ultra-supple leather. Reviewers say that the gold facing adds a nice flourish but doesn’t overwhelm the piece, and that it has incredible day to evening wearability.
Get the Tory Burch Collins Double Wrap 32mm Leather Strap Watch for $157.50 (Save $67.50)
17. Those backpacks everyone seems to be wearing
Herschel backpacks are designed for all of life’s daily adventures. You’ve probably seen them on the backs of hipsters, but don’t be fooled, they’re actually suitable for all types of people. I personally own the Herschel Dawson, which I bring to work everyday; I love the nostalgic look and quality of construction, as well as the comfortable straps that make it easy to carry around compared to a tote or messenger bag. Reviewers on Nordstrom love the Heritage for its classic design and sturdy material, and because it’s the perfect size for carrying their laptops and books. There’s plenty of options on sale though, so you’ll definitely be able to find a Herschel that perfectly suits you.

Whenever I see a pair on sale, I buy it almost immediately to wear to all my summer events rights. Right now, you can get two pairs on sale that are perfect for summer weddings and parties. Whether you choose the strappy heel or the open-toed mule you can’t go wrong.
