Nordstrom Run

When it comes to different classes of Nordstroms my local store isn't top of the list but I happy to have it just the same. One can only dream about the Nordstrom in Seattle with the Chanel Boutique...I hope that isn't some sort of urban legend?

I recently headed to Nordstrom to pick up a new bottle of my favorite perfume Prada Amber.

I couldn't resist checking out the latest Tom Ford sunglasses...I need another pair of sunglasses like I need a hole in the head.

The Nordstrom Cafe is a great place to grab a bite...so that's just where my mom and I headed.

She ordered a cup of soup and half a sandwich. It came with a side salad and the to die for Champagne Vinaigrette.

I went with one of my standards...a goat cheese salad. It had apple chips which added the most delightful crunch.

Do you have a Nordstrom nearby?

my favorite place to spend an hour or two and grab a snack when I'm home! I'm still searching for the Irish/Belfast equilivant!!

Love shopping and having lunch at Nordstroms. We didn't have one in NC for so long. Finally have a great one in Durham. May need to plan a trip.

Yes, we have a great Nordstrom in Richmond! Aside from their gorgeous merchandise, my favorite thing about shopping there is their superb customer service! Their sales associates are always willing to go above and beyond and help when searching for that "to-die-for" find.

Nordstrom has been my fave since I was a little girl. They have the best people helping and we always get my little girls shoes there.

The cafe is the best-my favorite is the tomato basil soup kids meal-complete with raisins and crayons.

Sounds like a great afternoon! Shopping and lunching with my mom is my favorite!

I love my Nordstrom, I can walk there from my apartment. Very dangerous!

I've shopped at Nordstrom a lot, but I've never tried the cafe. I'm going to have check it out :)

Sounds like a fun afternoon of lunching and shopping with your mom!

I do love Nordstrom (but no shopping for me during Lent).

I'm fortunate that I have three Nordstroms all within 10 miles and I go to each one for different things. Tysons for shoes and cosmetics, Montgomery Mall for the POV department, and Pentagon City for children's gifts. I've even been known to drive to Columbia or Towson to pick something up that one of my three didn't have. :-)

NO, and I so wish I did. :-( xoxo

I have been coveting a pair of those Tom Ford glasses ever since Denise Richards did them proud on her reality show. But, whenever I try them on I just can't seem to pull them off. Sigh...XXOO

Kerry said...

Yes, at The Westchester in White Plains. My favorite place to browse on a rainy Saturday.

Sarah Brooke said...

Love Nordstroms and the cafe. Goat cheese salads are also my go- to! xo

Main Line Sportsman said...

There is a Nordys near Phila...in King of Prussia. I am proud to say I have never crossed their threshold....Not really a sportin' kind of joint...I'll wager JCW is not a big fan either...but you girls go right ahead...

Kappa Prep said...

The Chanel boutique is NO legend! The Nordie's at Mall of America also has one and that just so happens to be where madre and I stock up...might as well turn those $$$ in some points, right?!

Let The Tide Pull Your Dreams Ashore said...

It’s great to know that there are some Nordstroms that live up to all of my fantasies! Last time I went to the mall w/ JCW was two years ago to pick up something I had on hold...we were in and out. xx

The Pentagon City Nordstrom Cafe are a place of refuge for a friend of mine from hurried DC life. and you're right the champagne vigigarette is TDF!

Pink Maple said...

Nordstrom just opened a couple years ago here in Massachusetts; there are 2 about 15 minutes from me. They're pretty good, but I'd love to compare one in another state sometime.

LoneStarPrep said...

There is one close to me but I am 99% certain it does not have a cafe! Have to go to Neiman's for that... which is fine!

Royar said...

I love my Nordstrom's but sometimes it lacks in shoes! My local one doesn't carry Tory Burch or Jacks which I find extremely odd but the perfume and sunglass counters are excellent!

...just another preppy shopaholic said...

Prada's Amber is one of my favorite scents too! Nordstroms also makes the best chai tea lattes and their Black and Tan mocha---yum!!

JMW said...

No, wish I did. When the kids were little, I ordered some of the cutest shoes from Norstrom. Will have to make a pilgrimage there one day. :)

Pink Champagne said...

Love the Nordi's Cafe and especially the Nordi's shoe department! XO

Kristi said...

Love the Seattle Nordstrom!!!

P.S. What size of the L.L.Bean Camo tote did you get? I was slightly dissapointed in the size when mine arrived. Thanks!
