Nordstrom’s Anniversary and Half-Yearly sales are events we have on our calendars year after year, but sometimes the iconic department store can surprise us with a host of totally unexpected markdowns. Right now, Nordstrom has unleashed a ton of new Holiday Deals ahead of the Black Friday/Cyber Monday rush — some up to 60% off — into their sale section, and they’re good until November 29.
You know what that means: We’ve done the hard work and gone through literally thousands of options so we can deliver the best picks below before you spend your precious time combing through on your own (of course, that’s totally encouraged too). Shop our favorite picks for men, women, kids and home below before your favorite styles and sizes sell out — and be sure to check out our list of other retailers with early Black Friday sales going on now.
