If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed at the preponderance of compelling markdowns that happened in July, you’re not alone. Between a spate of July 4 sales and the 48-hour savings frenzy that was Amazon Prime Day, there’s been a veritable parade of enticing markdowns that are tempting us with rare and hefty price cuts. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is another of these can’t miss mid-July events — and today, the tiered sale finally opened to the public.

Nordstrom’s yearly event offers genuinely good savings on just-landed merchandise from the likes of Ugg, Nike, Natori, Calvin Klein and more. (Marked-down prices will return to full retail after the sale is over.) There are deals to be had across the retailer’s inventory in categories like men’s and women’s fashion, beauty and home — and a quick peek at the bestsellers page indicates that intimates and sneakers are popular products with Nordstrom shoppers.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

HuffPost may receive a share from purchases made via links on this page. Every item is independently selected by the HuffPost Shopping team. Prices and availability are subject to change.

Natori underwire contour bra
This reviewer-beloved brand is a longtime bestseller at Nordstrom, and you can find markdowns on several popular styles during the Anniversary Sale. The synthetic jersey (which reviewer AngelaKae described as “soft and soothing to the skin”) and subtly padded cups promise to create a smooth silhouette under clothes.
Caslon water-resistant leather Chelsea boot
This water-resistant boot from one of Nordstrom’s coolest in-house collections is a perfectly rugged transitional shoe that you’ll reach for as soon as the temperatures begin to dip. The dusty camel leather upper and stylish lug sole provide the perfect combination of form and function.
Paula’s Choice BHA set
This Shopping-team approved leave-on exfoliant contains 2% beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) and salicylic acid, which help to exfoliate dead skin cells and clear pores for a brighter, more even skin tone. Nordstrom’s exclusive offering consists of an 8-ounce “jumbo” container, a 1-ounce travel-size bottle, and an oat-colored headband.
Hanky Panky lace thong
If you buy ONE thong this summer, make it this lacy option from Hanky Panky. The brand’s original panty hasn’t changed much since it launched in 1986, and it comes in a single cut that promises to fit sizes 4 to 14. The mid-rise waist and nylon-lace blend make for a comfortable-but-sexy fit, and the breathable cotton gusset will make sure your nether-regions don’t suffocate.
Ugg crossover slide slipper
No loungewear look is complete without a pair of fluffy, foot-swallowing slippers from Ugg — and a slew of the brand’s plush styles are marked during Nordstrom’s event. The proprietary “sugar terry” fabric of these coral-hued slides blends wool and tencel for a moisture-wicking material that feels super-soft on feet, and the synthetic 1” soles offer a slight height boost.
Calvin Klein set of five boxer briefs
These “refreshingly comfortable” (in the words of reviewer phoenix69) boxer briefs are made with a soft stretch cotton that has earned the underwear a 4.8-star rating with Nordstrom customers.
Treasure & Bond ruched bodycon dress
This seemingly simple rayon-blend sheath is a well-known bestseller among Nordstrom stans, thanks to its easy fit and flattering ruched side seams that reviewers say create an hourglass shape. “I wanted a dress that was very comfortable yet versatile to use in my capsule wardrobe, and this one really fits the bill,” wrote Jaipasdepseudo. “It feels as comfortable as a pair of sweats, but of course looks a lot better. The ruching on the side is very flattering, and it hugs my curves in all the right places.”
Spanx faux-leather legging
The longtime shapewear brand is a secret obsession within the ranks of HuffPost editors thanks to the comfort and curb appeal of its flattering apparel. These best-selling faux leather leggings are a highly-reviewed customer favorite. “I’ve wanted these for a while and I’m happy they live up to all the hype,” wrote Danielle Sheree. “They are TIGHT and hold everything in.“
Dr. Dennis Gross LED light therapy mask
We regret to inform you that this much-hyped LED face mask is worth every penny — but, as a consolation, it’s on sale for a limited time. Shopping writer Lourdes Avila Uribe called the futuristic beauty tool “a necessary investment for skin care fanatics” that “keeps [her] skin soft, smooth and healthy.” The hefty price tag can be a hurdle for even the most diligent skin savers, so we’d recommend nabbing this one now while it’s 30% off.
La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream (8.5 ounces)
Another ultra-premium Anniversary Sale score is this cappuccino-sized tub of La Mer’s soft cream — which, according to reviewer maxible, “[m]elts like butter on my skin [and] leaves [it] feeling so moisturized and soft.” This legendary moisturizer has amassed legions of devoted acolytes thanks to the sea kelp-infused formula that reviewers claim is highly effective.
Alo Yoga seamless knit bra
This soft and stretchy cotton-blend yoga top from beloved activewear brand Alo boasts wide binding and a longline silhouette that makes it perfect for transitioning from the gym out into the world.
Nike Waffle One sneaker (women's)
A stylish spinoff of Nike's ultra-hyped collaboration with high-end Japanese brand Sacai, this Waffle One boasts a summery mix of colors and edgy mesh paneling for a fashionable and functional shoe.
Kiehl’s Creme de Corps moisturizer refill (33.8 ounces)
This tablet-sized bag contains the same amount of Kiehl's beloved all-body moisturizer as four full-size bottles of product, helping to reduce plastic packaging by 80%. The sun-hued formula is infused with antioxidant-rich beta carotene, cocoa butter and sesame oil.
Bugaboo Stardust playpen
Sure, Graco's classic Pack and Play won't run you more than $80, but many reviewers say that Bugaboo's thoughtful take on the portable playpen is well worth the higher cost. I own this sturdy-yet-ultra-lightweight travel crib, and can confirm that not only is it astonishingly easy to set up, but it also packs away in a super-slim carrying case that's easy to throw in the car.
Casper dog bed (small)
We kinda thought all dog beds were created equal until we spotted this top-rated sleeping pad in Nordstrom's sale. With over 1,000 reviews and a 4.4-star rating, there's clearly something special in this canine couch. It has a removable, machine-washable cover and is filled with "viscoelastic" foam for maximum cushy comfort. "My babies love them (I have [two] now, ready to buy a matching [third]) and they like to press their heads into the soft, suede-like fabric on the pillows," wrote AndriaLL. "They are worth every penny."
New Balance 574 sneaker (men's)
The quintessential "dad" sneaker gets a colorful reboot with some appealing summer hues. Not only is New Balance's classic trainer vetted for top-notch comfort thanks to its supportive, EVA-cushioned midsole, it's enjoying a second life as a cool-kid must-have thanks to a silhouette untouched by time.
Robert Barakett crewneck T-shirt
$45 for a simple white T-shirt? I, too, questioned this — until I started reading the 500+ reviews of this 4.7-star wardrobe staple. "Yes, even with the $50 price tag, this shirt is a real value," wrote reviewer CFSoto. "The cotton fabric is superb and the texture, look and feel of this tee is wonderful. I own several and will attest to the fact they launder beautifully and hold up very well. You cannot go wrong with these Barakett shirts."
