Nordstrom Launches a Massive Online Sale Amid Temporary Store Closures

On March 17, Nordstrom voluntarily closed all of its retail stores for two weeks in order to help stop the spread of COVID-19. It has now launched a large online sale: Here are some of our favorite sale pieces that are both home- and travel-friendly. But hurry, because we don’t expect these sale items to stay in stock long.

The Best Items on Sale Right Now from Nordstrom

Fjallraven Kanken 15-inch Laptop Backpack

At 25 percent off (normally $120), this Fjallraven classic backpack style is a steal. I almost always use this as my personal item on a flight and it fits everything I need, and more. The moisture-repelling fabric is another standout feature for when you’re caught in unpredictable weather.

Madewell Whisper Cotton Rib Crewneck T-Shirt

Get the “work from home” chic look with this comfy tee from Madewell. The 100 percent cotton shirt gives off an effortless look that you’ll want to live in for days.

Leith Ruched Body-Con Tank Dress

This might just be the travel dress of our dreams. It manages to have a universally flattering fit that’s not too short. Choose from the eight available colors (or get multiple). It’s machine-washable and made of a cotton-poly blend, so it shouldn’t wrinkle when you travel. Oh, and it’s 45 percent off.

Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15

This gender-neutral, tinted moisturizer is the perfect “work from home” makeup. It gives you subtle coverage but also protects against the sun and toxins in the air while still managing to moisturize your skin.

True & Co. True Body Triangle Convertible Bralette

While working from home (or for future long haul flights), comfort is key. That’s why I’m loving this convertible bralette from True & Co. This style, in particular, provides an invisible and smoothing look under clothing. The best part? No wires, elastics, or seams. There are six colors to choose from and it’s 25 percent off its regular price tag.

Nest Fragrances Amalfi Lemon & Mint Reed Diffuser

Bring the scents and aromas of the Amalfi Coast to your home with a reed diffuser by Nest. This is just one of the hundreds of candles and diffusers on sale now at 25 percent off. Shop all candles and more scents here.

Get your toiletries in order with this chic travel kit by Tumi. It’s fully lined and has superior organizational capabilities. Plus, almost all of Tumi’s travel gear is 25 percent off as a part of the sale; check it out here.

Dyson Airwrap Complete Styler – for Multiple Hair Types and Styles

If you’ve been eyeing Dyson’s hair styling tools, this is the time to get them at a discount. The Airwrap is normally $549 but is currently 25 percent off. And if that’s not in your budget, check out Drybar’s travel-friendly blow-dryer brush, which is just over $100.

Mario Badescu Special Hand Cream with Vitamin E

Your poor over-washed hands could use some heavy-duty moisturizing right now. Mario Badescu’s Special Hand Cream has Vitamin E, feels lightweight, and isn’t greasy, but has emollient vitamin oils and nourishing botanicals to replenish moisture.

FitFlop Faux Fur Slipper Bootie

Marked down from $109.95 to $37.43, the FitFlop Faux Fur Slipper Booties are a serious bargain. Made from a super soft fake fur and a lightweight bubble foam cushioning, these slippers will keep you warm and comfortable as you relax at home.
