If you’ve been on social media at all over the last few days, there’s no doubt you’ve been hearing tons about the Nordstrom Sale. As far as we can tell, there isn’t a blogger out there who isn’t gabbing about it. So what’s the big deal? Here’s what you need to know:

There’s no other sale we know of that puts the merchandise on sale at the start of a season and then marks it up to full price once the sale is over. As you can tell, it is like a National Holiday around here. When new arrivals are marked down in July like it’s December, it’s Christmas come early. Literally.

Right now, the sale is “Early Access,” meaning it is just open to Nordstrom card holders. So you have to sign in with your Nordstrom account in order to access it. But in a few days it’ll be no holds barred for anyone and everyone with cash, credit or gift cards.

Needless to say, every year we use this sale to stock our closet with must-haves for our Fall wardrobe. But we’ll be the first to admit that wading through all of the offerings and deciding what you need for fall while sweating profusely in the heat of summer can be daunting. So don’t worry. We did it for you.

Here are sixteen things we think you would be crazy to miss at this year’s sale.
