Nordstrom Fall Clearance Sale – My Picks

nordstrom fall clearance saleThrough November 15th, Nordstrom is having their Fall Clearance Sale. If you didn’t score your deals during the Anniversary Sale, now’s the time to replenish your wardrobe with wallet-friendly staples and update with current trends. I’m a big fan of Nordstrom for their free shipping and returns (with no time limit), variety of sizes, brands, and pricepoints. My picks from the clearance:

Outerwear

Don’t have your winter coat yet? Now’s the time to get one at a great price!

Fall and Winter Fashion

Nordstrom always has great sales on fashion, but these events are great to score good prices on clothes you can wear right now.

I’m impressed by the selection of shoes, especially boots, that are on sale right now at Nordstrom

  • The ‘Dakotah’ riding boot from Hinge looks like a million bucks but is on sale for less than $100. Three colors to choose from, this is a classic that will look chic over skinny jeans or leggings or under skirts.
  • The ‘Penny’ Boot from Sam Edelman is gorgeous and luxe, comes in regular and wide calf options, as well as six different colors. Great customer reviews and a great sale price!
  • I really really want the ‘Joanie’ boot from MICHAEL Michael Kors. Stretch back and leather front, a tough lug sole, this is a badass boot that has a touch of elegance. Style with a floaty chiffon dress, slip over jeans or leggings. Reviews are positive and people say they are wearable for long days of walking.
  • The Vince Camuto ‘Empa’ Pointy Toe Loafer Flat is an excellent work shoe. Great lines and a toe that will peek out from work trousers and look professional. Four great colors to choose from and under $70.
  • I have the Converse Shoreline sneakers and love them as an alternative to classic Chucks, which hurt my feet. With an elasticized back and laces, it’s comfort yet still maintains that classic style. I love wearing with sundresses and cuffed jeans.
  • The ‘Eleanor’ ankle strap heeled sandal is the perfect shoe for your holiday dressy events. Thin straps and an elegant style will look great with everything from silk cigarette pants to dresses of every length. Six colors available.
  • I dig this moto boot, I own similar which I find surprisingly versatile.  I wear with leggings or skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, and think it's a great contrast with tights and shift dresses.
  • If you're looking for a classic Chelsea boot, the ‘Nocturno' from Lucky Brand is a great option at a great price. Available in two colors.
  • I'm loving brogues right now; they're sassy and stylish yet quite comfortable and wearable all day.  The ‘Lacey' oxford from Halogen has a fun leopard print that would look great with denim or peeking out of work trousers.
  • These leopard print Mary Janes from Jessica Simpson are so sweet and would make a great contrast to most any color in your wardrobe.  And for less than $60, you can't resist!
  • The Cole Haan ‘Anya' bootie is the perfect boot for work and play.  Sleek heel and pointed toe to look elegant and professional with trousers as well as opaque tights, yet it will also look fab come the weekend with jeans or a little dress.

Handbags

I always buy my bags during Nordstrom sales because they regularly put current styles and hot brands at a nice discount.

Accessories

So many of my accessories come from Nordstrom; they do a good job of mixing pricepoints without including crappy quality.

  • This long beaded stone pendant is in my shopping cart as I type this.  Less than $25 for a long pendant that will add a bit of interest and sparkle to any kind of outfit.  It's hard to choose which color to buy; I was really torn but went with Arabian Spice.
  • This oversized scarf will add style three seasons out of the year; the price is phenomenal for a scarf of that size.  It's so big you can get creative with it – make it a cummerbund, turn it into a beach coverup, and tie it in a multitude of ways!
  • This cuff from Melinda Maria reminds me of my Rebecca Minkoff cuff that I wear all the time.  It's so simple it makes for a wonderful signature piece, and I adore the faceted stone detail!
  • You know by now how much I adore my silver wrist cuff; this domed cuff bracelet from Nordstrom isn't sterling or quite as big but it still makes a gorgeous impact.  Also comes in gold and the price is fantastic!
  • I adore the statement that this wide braided belt from MICHAEL Michael Kors creates.  Slip over any sheath or fit and flare dress in your wardrobe for a complete transformation; it would also look great cinching a scarf or ruana.
  • If you're in need of gloves this winter (or want to give a lovely gift) these knit cuff leather gloves from Fownes Brothers are classic, elegant, and I have a pair of gloves by this brand and can confirm they are well made.  Three colors to choose from.
  • I think this glasses chain is so pretty!  If you wear reading or computer glasses, you're often slipping them on and off; this makes the process easy and not look granny at all.

    The Cole Haan coat – I got mine in the bordeaux color at TJMaxx about a month ago for $119.99. I was on my way out of the store when I spotted the rack and it was love at first site. The color is gorgeous and it looks great on. I didn’t need a winter coat but I couldn’t walk away from it!

    Allie, I have a quick question not about this post but I hope you can give me a short answer. What should a 46-year old stay-at-home mom wear to a retail job interview? I’m guessing my black interview pants suit is not quite the right thing. (The company is a discount shoe store if that makes a difference.) Thanks!

      No need for a suit unless you’re applying for store manager, DM, or RM. You could wear the pants with a stylish sweater or top, or a dress. I’d wear something that’s not uber trendy but shows you’re aware of current trends (a simple black knit dress styled with a denim jacket and/or tall boots is an easy way). There’s a good chance you will be interviewed by someone who is the age where s/he could be your child; I’ve been that manager in the past and I found I was drawn to those who didn’t seem too serious, too “old” or “mom” but still had a good sound head on her shoulders. I think of when I worked at The Body Shop, my best employee was a SAHM in I’m guessing her 40s, she usually wore a black sweater and pants or a black knit shift dress and flat shoes to work, but she had funky glasses, liked colorful lipstick, and wore fun necklaces she often made herself. She saw the fun in things, she could giggle with the teenagers on the team, customers of all ages connected with her, but she was reliable and took her job seriously. I bet they will be THRILLED to have you be on the team, being a SAHM means you’re an expert in multitasking, working under a deadline, having a great memory and used to cleaning up other people’s messes without taking it too personally. Retail is a fun community, I wish you the best on your interview!!!

        Thank you so much. I have 2 teens of my own and also tutor high school math so I’ve got that going for me. (One is off to college next year so I NEED to get back to the workforce) In addition, my background is in engineering & computer science but haven’t worked in 15+ years. My only fear is them thinking I am over-qualified. I’ll let you know how it goes. You are such an inspiration to me! Thanks again.
