Whether you're tired of thumbing through picked-over racks of spring and summer merchandise or excited for a fall wardrobe refresh, mark your calendars for this Friday, July 22, when Nordstrom kicks off its annual Anniversary Sale at both of its Mall of America and Ridgedale locations, plus online. The event offers shoppers the chance to score serious discounts—up to a whopping 44 percent off—on brand-new merchandise for the fall season. The sale spans merchandise for women, men, trend, kids, shoes, handbags, accessories, beauty, and home. New to the sale this year are Alexander Wang ready-to-wear, accessories, and shoes; cult jewelry brand Alex and Ani; Allsaints handbags, Rag & Bone handbags and accessories, Marc Jacobs handbags, Current/Elliott denim, Madewell, Cupcakes and Cashmere, Alice + Olivia, and Jessica Alba's eco-friendly baby and skincare brand the Honest Company.

Also kicking off on Friday is the Anniversary Sale Beauty Bash, featuring 17 days of demonstrations, makeovers, free samples, runway makeup tips and tricks, and gifts-with-purchase. (Check out the full list of exclusives.) The main event is the Beauty Bash on July 23, which includes makeovers from expert makeup artists, consultations, exclusive savings, and a free Nordstrom tote with a $125 beauty purchase.

The sale runs through August 8—then prices go back up. (And if you're a Nordstrom cardholder, you can get a head start and shop now.) Preview some pieces included in the sale below and at nordstrom.com/AnniversarySale.

Here are my favorite picks from the Anniversary Sale catalog:

This dress is the perfect twist on the LBD with a trumpet skirt and clean, tailored silhouette. Cinq a Sept Harlyn Sleeveless Trumpet Dress, $263.90 (regularly $395)

...And it's perfectly paired with these strappy Alexander Wang pumps. Exclusive Alexander Wang Stefania Pump, $318.90 (regularly $475)

I adore this vintage-inspired lariat tassel necklace—a subtle yet glam alternative to last season's statement necklace. Kendra Scott Jake Lariat Pendant Necklace, $79.90 (regularly $120)

This creamy suede-backed wool vest is a chic layering piece to top turtlenecks and t-shirts alike. Lafayette 148 New York Suede & Wool Open Front Vest, $299.90 (regularly $448)

Oxblood, burgundy, maroon—whatever you want call it, it's the it color for footwear and accessories this fall. I dig Alexander Wang's take on a '70s-style ankle boot with a block heel. Exclusive Alexander Wang Kenze Bootie, $484.90 (regularly $725)

This buttery-soft cognac leather makes me want to ditch my go-to black bag (at least for awhile). Exclusive ALLSAINTS Paradise North/South Tote, $232.90 (regularly $348)

Enough cannot be said about the perfection that is a crisp white blouse-with-a-twist. This one is approachable enough for work, elegant enough for after-work cocktails, and artful enough for an art opening. Tibi Sophia Tie Sleeve Cotton Top, $196.90 (regularly $295)

I'm a sucker for the perfect leather jacket. This one from Burberry combines moto details and bold gold zippers with a nod to fall's naval-inspired trend. Burberry Leather Jacket, $1,329.90 (regularly $1,995)

Summer's caftan trend transitions into fall with this minidress by Alice + Olivia—perfect for pairing with fall's '70s-inspired chunky ankle boots. Alice + Olivia Katt Print V Neck Caftan Minidress, $265.90 (regularly $398)

Who says you can't wear white after Labor Day? Throw that outdated style rule to the wayside and toss this architectural Marc Jacobs hobo over your shoulders. Marc Jacobs Pike Place Hobo, $285.90 (regularly $428)

Move over, skinny jeans—straight jeans are a gal's new best friend this fall. Frame Le High Straight Jeans, $163.90 (regularly $245)

I'm a fan of any beauty product that makes getting my face ready for the day quick and easy. Charlotte Tilbury 'Instant Beauty Palette - The Dolce Vita Look' 5-Minute Face On the Go, $75 (regularly $147)

With deals this good, it's a great time to restock your brushes. MAC 'Look in a Box - Basic' Brush Kit, $52.50 (regularly $167)

I'm obsessed with the black version of Elizabeth and James' Nirvana fragrance, so I'm curious to try the white version. Elizabeth and James 'Nirvana White' Set, $100 (regularly $160)

I'm about due to trade up on my styling tools—and this set promises blowdry-bar results in the comfort of your own home. Drybar 'Beach in a Box' Collection, $140 (regularly $209)

I swear by my Clarisonic to refresh my skin between facials. Jump at the opportunity to get your own on mega-sale. Clarisonic 'Mia 2 - White' Sonic Skin Cleansing System, $118 (regularly $169)
