We look forward to Nordstrom’s legendary sales for months, and its spring sale is no different: With great discounts across all departments, Nordstrom’s Spring Sale — going on now through April 5 — makes for an opportune time to round off the wardrobe for the last of the chilly days and get stocked up for spring.
This sale is seeing discounts on some of the store’s most popular brands, including Adidas, Madewell, Ugg, Levi’s and much more. If you don’t have time to browse through all the on-sale stock, we’d recommend filtering by the brands you’re hoping to add to your wardrobe. And to help you narrow down your must-haves even further, we’ve rounded up some of the biggest and best bargains from the department store’s sale section, whether you’re looking for beauty products, planning to splash out on a Le Creuset for the kitchen or cozying up with an on-sale splurge like an ultra-plush robe.
Adidas Rib Zip Crop Tank ($18, originally $30; nordstrom.com)
This slightly cropped tank pairs well with high-waisted leggings or under jackets for spring runs. Happy customers say it doesn’t stretch out with wear and that it fits snugly without being too tight — a win-win in our book.
Madewell Damien Stripe Whisper Cotton Rib Crewneck T-Shirt ($18.37, originally $24.50; nordstrom.com)
You can literally never go wrong with a black-and-white striped tee for summer, especially when you’re pairing it with a cool pair of cuffed relaxed jeans, sneakers and a vegan leather jacket. For less than $20, consider this a new wardrobe staple.
Levi’s 501 High-Waist Crop Straight Leg Jeans ($38.97, originally $98; nordstrom.com)
Levi’s 501s are a classic for a reason, and in this fit, they come with of-the-moment cropped hems that work as great with summer slides as they do with fall and winter’s combat boots.
Sam Edelman Notch Collar Tweed Coat ($129.90, originally $198; nordstrom.com)
If you’re the kind of person who shops in the off season, you know it’s time to snap up some winter coat deals. This Sam Edelman coat, at 30% off, features a smart tweed pattern and a gorgeous deep burgundy color that looks sophisticated with winter’s all-black uniform.
Greenpan 10-Inch Cast Aluminum Ceramic Nonstick Grill Pan ($97.49, originally $129.99; nordstrom.com)
This pro-grade pan from Greenpan is nontoxic and nonstick — an ideal combo — and is built to last. It’s versatile too, making it an essential pan to have on hand: It works on all stovetops and can go in the oven up to 600 degrees.
Dyson Lightcycle Task Light ($499, originally $599.99; nordstrom.com)
Dyson continues to make our stay-at-home lives a little bit better with a task light that automatically adjusts its temperature and brightness to the time of day, helping to reduce eye strain while you’re at your desk. It also has a handy motion sensor that turns the lamp on as you approach and then turns it back off five minutes after you’ve left the room.
John Robshaw Vama Beach Towel ($66.60, originally $75; nordstrom.com)
With a motif of peacocks and flowering trees in pea green, mustard and turquoise, this beach towel brings eclectic, retro vibes to the seashore or neighborhood pool. At 70 inches by 40 inches, it’s a little larger than your average beach towel, giving you more room to spread out and relax.
Le Creuset Signature 6 3/4-Quart Dutch Oven ($249.95, originally $380; nordstrom.com)
You can’t go wrong with a Le Creuset, and if you’ve been thinking about splurging on one, now’s the time: The 6.75-quart Dutch oven is made to last, thanks to durable enameled cast iron that gets better with time. It’s a great all-purpose pot for braising, bread-baking, soups and more — and it’s just as safe for the oven as it is for the dishwasher.
Fortessa Jupiter Double Old-Fashioned Glasses, Set of 6 ($36, originally $48; nordstrom.com)
It seems like most of our cocktails are going to be homemade for the near future, so we consider poshing up the barware a great investment. Reminiscent of a certain iittala pattern at half the price, these glasses come in shades from kelly green to a deep berry. (And yes, they’re dishwasher-safe!)
All-Clad D3 7-Quart Stainless Steel Pasta Pentola ($299.99, originally $405; nordstrom.com)
Let’s be real: Pasta has become a go-to meal for many of us over lockdown. At this point, we might as well invest in a nice way to make it — and All-Clad is a brand that’s known to last decades when you take care of it, making it worthy of its price tag. This 7-quart model has a colander insert to make straining easy, and if you have an induction cooktop, this is just fine for it.
Venom Back Heat & Vibration Wrap ($149.99, originally $249.99; nordstrom.com)
If your living quarters mean that you’re working from the kitchen table, your bed or an office chair that went a little hard on looks at the expense of comfort (no shame), this compact gadget might just be your ticket. It uses heat and vibration to target lower back pain and stiffness to help relax you (and unlike the massaging chair-back pads of yore, you can even walk around with it on).
Nambe Vie Decanter ($75, originally $100; nordstrom.com)
Take this from a former skeptic: Decanters do make a difference. If you’re drinking at home and spending $15 on a bottle instead of $60 at a restaurant, treat it nicely. A pour through the decanter, a little bit of oxygen, a swirl and your wine will be ready to go. These days, it’s better than waiting an hour for it to “open up.”
Paige Transcend Lennox Slim Fit Jeans ($149.25, originally $199; nordstrom.com)
These slim fit jeans are designed to be worn and worn again, thanks to denim made with rayon fibers that allow the jeans to retain their shape and stay soft. The black wash is great for summer’s striped tees and sneakers too.
Nordstrom Plush Jacquard Robe ($53.70, originally $89.50; nordstrom.com)
If you’ve had a plush bathrobe on your list for a while, now’s the time to snag one: This ultra-luxe robe from Nordstrom is a calf-length cloud to wrap up in after a shower. We especially love the attention to detail, with a subtle but sophisticated jacquard and sumptuous colorways of gray, navy and black.
Fred Perry Twin Tipped Extra-Slim Fit Piqué Polo ($34.80, originally $58; nordstrom.com)
A good polo is surprisingly hard to come by; you need a slim cut and a little detail to make the look less collegiate-preppy (unless, you know, you’re really committing) and more sunny-day-in-Paris. Luckily, Fred Perry has a great style ready to go for spring’s warm days, featuring classic white with navy and sky blue detailing at the collar and sleeves.
Collegium Pillar Slide Sandals ($53.40, originally $89; nordstrom.com)
Made from pebble-grain Horween leather, these slides take those triple-striped ones from your college days up to the next level, whether you’re heading to the shower or to the bodega next door. They’re available in colorways that go with your favorite pair of joggers, whether you opt for black, navy or cognac.
Tucker + Tate Dreamy Dress ($21, originally $35; nordstrom.com)
This loose, swingy dress — which comes in both toddler and little girl sizes — is perfect for playtime, running errands or wherever a little one’s busy day takes them.
Mini Boden Cozy Sweatshirt Dress ($35.20, originally $44; nordstrom.com)
Pink stripes and strawberries set the mood for the sunnier, warmer days to come — but the sweatshirt material makes it perfect for babies cozying up during the last chilly days before summer’s warm weather.
Tucker + Tate Kids’ Intarsia Sweater ($19.50, originally $39; nordstrom.com)
A pop of cobalt and a quirky fox print make this the perfect sweater for spring’s cooler days.
Ugg Canoe Waterproof Sneaker ($37.48, originally $74.95; nordstrom.com)
This waterproof chukka-style sneaker keeps little feet dry during spring rain showers without all the cumbersome bulk of a pair of wellies. They’re well designed too; you don’t have to worry about too many spills on slippery sidewalks, thanks to an outsole designed for better traction.
