Nordstrom's anniversary present
In an age of Hallmark gimmicks, it's refreshing to see a store that knows how to reach its customers. It's not about Facebook fans or incessant tweets. If every retailer did promotions as well as the Nordstrom, the world would be a better place.
Big talk, I know, but let's be real: I'm not holding my breath for global peace or an oil clean-up in the Gulf of Mexico. I'll count my blessings for the little things, like the predictable joy of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
Every year, Nordstrom discounts (often deeply) select items from its new fall collection. The items go back to full price when the sale ends. So get there before August 2. You'll find such deals as this cutie-pie Enzo Angiolini pump, left, on sale for $59.90, and a happy collection of dresses under $100.
