It’s officially here: the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! It’s one of the biggest sale events of the year and with many fall items deeply discounted, not one that you want to miss especially if you have a teen or college student in your family.
Below are some of our favorite items from the sale this year. Remember: they sell out quickly so be sure to order items as you find them!
A beautifully designed electric aromatherapy diffuser offers a new and sophisticated way to fill your teen’s space with the scents they love—simply add water and the essential oil of choice, then turn it on. (If your student is living in a dorm next year, check to make sure this would be allowed by the school.)
Be ready for whatever Mother Nature throws your way with a hooded waterproof rain jacket that’s the perfect blend of practical and chic. A hood makes all the difference in a sudden down pour if you’ve forgotten to carry an umbrella.
Stow and go with a lightweight rain boot built from natural, flexible rubber for rollaway packability. Hunter is our favorite brand of rainboots and they will last all four years of college, and then some.
In keeping with Madewell’s focus on clean, modern essentials, this spacious leather signature tote is set off with a single suede stripe. It’s large enough to store a small laptop along with daily essentials.
A highly compressible North Face puffer coat with bottleneck quilting is outfitted with high-tech PrimaLoft® insulation that offers the warmth equivalent of down while maintaining performance in wet conditions. Elastic binding at the cuffs and an internal cinch cord at the hem keep out the elements.
A performance-driven update to Patagonia’s tried-and-true Better Sweater features a noticeably lighter version of the warm fleece knit in a layering-friendly, full-zip jacket. Side panels of supple Polartec® Power Stretch® jersey give it unfettered mobility and comfort.
A soft Flyknit construction provides a snug, lightweight feel for these high-performance running shoes designed with a foot-stabilizing sole featuring cushy Nike React technology for ultimate comfort over long distances. Perfect for the student on a large campus that will do a lot of walking this year.
