There's many a reason to love Nordstrom Rack: first and foremost is the preponderance of merchandise that’s already passed through the hallowed halls of Nordstrom — a heritage retailer trusted for its spectacular customer service and always-on-point edit of brands, both classic and edgy. We make a beeline for the Rack to browse lines like Cole Haan, Doc Martens, Madewell, Levi’s, and Z by Zella; discovering inventory slept on by other shoppers and nabbing wardrobe staples for a song. Another reason: its major Clear The Rack Sale, where for three days the site slashes an additional tantalizing final sale 25% off its clearance stock (totaling up to 75% off savings).
Inventory levels at Nordy’s sister shop can fluctuate with the tides, and beloved steals (like this universally-flattering late-summer maxi dress) regularly flutter ephemerally in and out of stock. And this is especially true during the highly anticipated end-of-summer blowout. The sale kicked off this morning, so we went ahead and examined the site with a fine-toothed comb — pulling out the best deals with our markdown-trained eagle eyes.

The sale ends September 7, so don’t wait until the long weekend is over to peruse these fall-essential finds.
