The Nordstrom half yearly sale is here | May 2020 deals

Jump-start summer with the season's best looks on sale.

Nordstrom offers plenty of chances to save on top designer brands like Tory Burch, Reformation and Jeffrey Campbell. If you’re looking to refresh your summer wardrobe, beauty drawer or home decor, its half yearly sale offers 11 days of significant savings.

When is Nordstrom’s half yearly sale?

Nordstrom holds its half yearly sale twice per year in January and May — not to be confused with its Anniversary Sale in July. This year, the half yearly sale runs from May 21 through 31.

Is there an early access date?

Yes. A customer service rep for Nordstrom confirmed there will be an early access date for Nordstrom credit cardholders, but it hasn’t been released yet. Check back here for additional details as we pick them up.

What kind of deals to expect

Nordstrom typically offers thousands of items up to 50% off during the half yearly sale. January’s sale saw deals on winter fashion and accessories for women, men and children, plus home decor items. We expect to see summer preview styles on sale this month and slashed prices on everything from shoes to beauty products.

During previous sales, Nordstrom markdowns included popular brands like Adidas and Sam Edelman, plus house brands Leith, Halogen, BP and Treasure & Bond.
