Last night in T-town (Tacoma for those of you not from the south end), a fabulous event took place. This event was like none other. You may wonder what I am talking about. I am talking about the Nordstrom Relocation Gala which benefited the Tacoma Art Museum and the Museum of Glass. For Nordstrom, this event was 42 years in the making. For me, I have been waiting for 2 long and agonizing years for this event to happen.
to the car, we entered via the black carpet where we were greeted
with cocktails (wine, champagne and pomegranate martini's). Tarah and I were given the grand tour by Nordstrom PR rep, Kendall.
As we viewed each new feature, trays of food were constantly passing us (I loved the lobster corn dogs). The Dudley Manlove Group provided the musical entertainment while guest checked out all that the store had to offer including the chance to shop before others. Models were available on both floors,modeling the latest fashions.
A few noteworthy items have been added to this store which include:
Anastasia Brow Bar - the perfect place to learn how to stencil your own brows, purchase an at home kit or get a wax.
Deborah Lippmann Manicure Bar - treat yourself to a manicure or pedicure at the end of a long shopping trip
Shoe Shine - we can all use a buff every once in a while plus it is
situated between men's and women's shoes so you can check
out shoes from your seat while getting a shine.
Cafe Bistro - entree based meals, quick service and a calming ambiance
B.P Dressing Room - this is something you must see for yourself. you can bring along your friends and they sit back on the couch and watch TV while you try on clothes. it makes me wish I was a teenager again.
There are many more feature however all of the fashion related ones you will have to tune in tomorrow for. I will be providing a breakdown of the different departments.
The official grand opening is Friday October 3rd. Nordstrom is kicking it all off with a Beauty Event at 8am in which a light breakfast will be served. This new store is a definite must see and a must shop.
