Nordstrom‘s anniversary sale starts July 18, but Nordstrom cardholders can get early access on the 10th. Here’s a tip from Amanda Ossmus, head stylist at the Westfield Montgomery Mall store: If there’s something you have your eye on, don’t wait. “North Face jackets are the number one thing that our customers buy at this sale, so those usually blow out right away,” Ossmus says. “And when we restock them, they’ll be back to the regular price.” Meanwhile, Ossmus says the new Topshop line has been such a success at Montgomery Mall that it’s influencing the merchandise mix in other departments. “People are supposed to be so conservative in this area, but Topshop is doing so well here that we’re now starting to get a lot of other pieces that are trendy, modern and edgy,” she says.
