ABOUT OUR SALE EVENTS

  • How do HauteLook’s daily sale events work?
    Our team of experts partners with fashionable brands and approved suppliers to offer a wide assortment of styles and sizes at the best prices possible. When a sale event is over, we work with our partner or supplier to fulfill the orders. Once we receive the items from a partner or supplier, we then review, pack and ship them to our customers.

    We launch new events every day at 8AM Pacific. Events starting Monday–Thursday, including those launched in the afternoon and evening, run for 48-72 hours. Events starting Friday or Saturday run until Monday morning. Home events launch every Tuesday at 1PM Pacific and run for a full 7 days.

    If you have a HauteLook account, you can also use it to shop nordstromrack.com. That way, you can shop our exciting limited-time events, as well as an ongoing catalog of brands you love with just one shared account, cart, and checkout.

  • How do I learn about HauteLook sale events?
    Every morning at 8AM Pacific, customers signed up to receive HauteLook emails get an email and/or a mobile app notification listing the day’s new events. Click on the email or open your HauteLook mobile app to start shopping.
  • What does it mean when an item is on hold?
    Each sale item has a set amount of inventory. An item is placed "on hold" when the last available piece is in another customer’s shopping cart, but has not yet been purchased. Any item that has been in another customer’s cart for over 15 minutes does become available again, so don’t lose hope if an item you love is on hold.
  • How long can I have an item in my shopping cart?
    You can reserve an item in your cart for 15 minutes. If an item times out but is still available, you can add it back to your cart by clicking "Add It Again." Items from nordstromrack.com can be reserved in your cart for up to 30 minutes.

    STATE & LOCAL SALES TAXES

    The terms contained herein are subject to change as the taxation of online transactions is continually evolving. HauteLook strives to comply with state and local tax laws as they exist currently and continues to monitor and update its taxation policies as those laws change.

    States Where HauteLook Does Not Collect Sales Taxes

You may have a tax obligation in states where HauteLook does not collect sales tax. Details of how to report these taxes may be found at the websites of your respective tax authorities.

    Our return philosophy is to be fair and reasonable with our customers, and we hope that our customers are fair and reasonable with us as well. In rare instances, we feel a customer isn't being fair with us, either by regularly abusing our approach to refunds, or by having an unusually high rate of returns. These situations may ultimately end with the decision that we can no longer serve those customers.
