Let me tell you how much I love Nordstrom. I live in Brooklyn, New York. We have no traditional Nordstrom stores (we have Nordstrom Rack — their discount outlet) in the city. I happily drive all the way to the middle of freaking Long Island, about 22 miles away, in Long Island traffic, to get to their sales. If you're willing to sit in traffic for something, it's special. I'm a Nordstrom expert, so you'll want to heed my advice on this one. Here's what to get at the Nordstrom holiday 2017 sale, because their discounts make your knees weak.
When I was growing up, Nordstrom sounded so fancy. It was like Harrods or Barney's in my estimation. Little did I know that the consistently clean bathrooms with real walls and doors are not attached to overpriced nonsense. (By the way, bathrooms? So important, and yes, I'm judging a store by its loo.) Sure, they have designer goods and services like personal shoppers and tailors, but they also have multipacks of baby socks for $10 and tons of makeup featuring a free gift with purchase. I don't know any avid makeup lover who isn't a huge fan of the free gift with purchase. You do not want to know how many little makeup bags my daughter has acquired this way. What to buy at the Nordstrom holiday sale is a bit personal and unique, but there are always a few sure bets in the bunch, so look at those first.
