Nordstrom Spring Sale: 35 Best Deals 2022

Photo-Illustration: The Strategist; Pictures: Retailers

As deals writer, I’ve covered a whole slew of sales at Nordstrom over the past year. There was the Anniversary Sale, the Half-Yearly Sale, the Black Friday Sale, the Cyber ​​Monday Sale, and the Winter Sale — all of which offered generally good (though modest) discounts on reliable brands and past-season styles. The retailer’s Spring Sale, however, is the best sales event I’ve seen yet: The styles are in-season, the sizes are plentiful, and the brands are vast. Strategist favorites like Levi’s Ribcage denim, Teva sandals, and Calvin Klein underwear are all included, as are some lesser-known finds from brands like Wild One, Departo, and Five Two. Discounts range from 20 to 65 percent off (another reason why the Spring Sale reigns supreme), and everything automatically ships for free. The sale runs through April 18, but note that items have already started selling out, so, as we say: Don’t dillydally. (And with Mother’s Day on the way, don’t forget to pick something out for Mom, too.)

Tretorn Rawlins Retro Sneaker

A ’70s tennis-court staple, Tretorn sneakers are one of our favorite styles for both men and women. The sock liner “provides superior comfort,” says menswear specialist Nicolas Lazaro, while the canvas upper “provides an uncompromised balance of breathability and durability that can be hard to find with other tennis shoes.” (They run narrow, Lazaro adds, so consider going up a half size.)

Wood Fire Candle Diptych

When executive assistant “Ted” needs to purchase a gift for a client, he often chooses one of Diptyque’s status-y candles because they come in a wide range of sizes, scents, and price points. He calls the brand’s Feu De Bois his “end-all and be-all,” saying he loves the neutral, unisex scent.
