Each year, Nordstrom's anniversary comes around with a generous selection of markdowns, some rivaling those found on Black Friday. Everything from designer jewelry to best-selling and even never-before-released beauty items appear at this once yearly sale, and while shopping in-person is nice, there's no better way to explore it than online. Our guide to our favorite picks at this event will help guide you to whatever it is you may need or want.

When it comes to beauty especially, luxury and best-selling brands alike are creating never-before-released (or even seen!) sets or "jumbo" products specifically for this event. Charlotte Tilbury is releasing her "Pillowtalk" lipgloss in a kit that features multiple products in the neutral-pink shade, which will be the first time beauty buyers can get their hands on this long-awaited gloss release. Discover Le Labo (if you're not completely on board already) with this set of four fragrances. Extra-large sizes of luxury skincare brands like Fresh and St. Tropez are featured for the Nordstrom Anniversary, so you can take a break from buying your favorites and remain set for yourself into the new year.

Now through July 18th, Nordstrom cardmembers can shop Early Access, where they have first picks on some of the most coveted items to go on markdown this year. From July 19th through August 4th, the sale opens to the public and prices go back up on August 5th.

Whether you're in search of resort wear for a late-summer vacation, on the hunt for a luxurious new bedding set or kitchenware, or looking to get ahead and start your fall wardrobe, Nordstrom's Anniversary event has you covered.
