First of all, let me say that the “mature” man doesn’t equate to the intellect, character, personality or hygiene of that person. As “mature” women are being called for those NOT petite or skinny, the “mature” man can be considered in the same way. Living in the south, there are more “mature” men here than anywhere else I have been.

Okay, I’m a little late on this news, but still it’s noteworthy nonetheless. According to the Wall Street Journal, Nordstrom, my beloved Seattle-based retailer, buys an awesome “flash sale” entity in the form of HauteLook for about $270 million in stock. That’s pretty impressive given the growing flash sales market around nowadays. Being a member of both Gilt Groupe AND HauteLook, I can definitely see why Nordstrom wants to take a piece of that action and turn it into dollar signs down the road.
What does this mean for the fashion industry? I’m sure there are lots of analysts that will share their perceived future of fashion and retail industries. But from my own personal opinion, I think this is a great investment on Nordstrom’s part, and definitely a way to get a foothold on their business by expanding their market and customer reach.
The downside that I see is in imagining what HauteLook would have been if it were to hold off on Nordstrom’s sale and decides to keep operating as an independent? I’m thinking in the lines of Twitter here… As you can see, Twitter’s refusal to accept Google and Facebook’s offer changed (if not, modified) the business of the social media industry. I can imagine that HauteLook, Gilt Groupe and its competitors can change the business infrastructure of the fashion and retail industries if they stayed in business as an independent.
Again, my 2 cents
Nordstrom Half-Yearly Men’s Sale Now! Check out the Shoes!!! DROOL http://ow.ly/22mWv
Nordstrom has started their store construction at popular Green Hills mall in Nashville. I am so thankful of seeing one of my fave stores of all time be transplanted in the south. You have no idea what a relief this is for guys like me.
It’s been a challenge to get great retailers and stores in the south, especially here in Nashville, as the market for high-end stores are JUST slowly booming, unlike bigger and better cities like Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, or Seattle who are already established in their own rights. When I first came to Nashville to visit back in the summer of ’06, Green Hills was only 1/3 of what it is now, and back then it wasn’t much to even notice, IMHO. Now, higher end cats like Coach, Louis Vuitton, and 7 For All Mankind are taking place here – hopefully to end this country boot, western-shirt wearing style of town.
Nevertheless, the excitement is still there and I cannot wait to see the results. Props to the Nordstrom heads to make this happen and keep us Seattlites proud.
Gotta love Nordstrom for their quality and brand name selection. You’ll find between 20% to 40% off of sweet products like 7 for All Mankind, True Religion, The North Face, Nordstrom brand, Kenneth Cole, Ed Hardy, and more!
Here are some samples of this half-yearly sale.
Was $168, now $109.90
Was $695, now $414.90
There are tons of sales happening right now, as you may very well know. Let’s get down to the nitty gritty… Who is this Encarnacion?
Oops, my bad: good movie (Nacho Libre), wrong timing.
Here are some of my fave sales happening so far:
I’m sure there are more happening, but you get the drift. Enjoy the sales!
Ooh, I always love Nordstrom sales, especially back home in Seattle. The ambiance of the place, the piano player playing tunes while shoppers shop… Ah, the memories.
Now if they will only get to Nashville sooner than 2011.
Father’s day is coming up soon, so here are some great ways to get great gifts (and save $$) for the father(s) in your lives!
With the “new” Bing live and running, I’ve checked out some cool electronics for all you gadget dads out there. I personally would get an iPod, but I wouldn’t discount the Zune products either. Coming from the land of Microsoft, it has very cool features that most iPods don’t have, but I would still get the iPod anyway LOL.
Let’s not forget Your Personal Shopper’s favorites, like Armani Exchange’s summer sale event. Up to 70% off of your latest Armani fashions! Check out their Under $29 sale and their Tees selection as well!
Here are some more places to get great deals on your shopping spree
So go get shopping for your Dad! Just do me a favor: don’t buy him Crocs, okay?
Ok, so being from the Northwest, I am so jonesing for Nordstrom and am missing it terribly. If you’re in the south, you’ll probably notice that there are NO Nordstrom available. NONE. While Nashville is supposed to be a city that is getting a Nordstrom, it’s not coming anytime soon. So I thought, “Hey, online shopping is awesome, and I don’t have to be in any particular state to get stuff, so I’ll bring online shopping to you!”
Now that spring is here, Nordstrom always comes out with great products to fit the season. I always like linen in the spring – it’s very light, comfortable, and breathes easy on the skin, especially if it’s hot like it is here in the south.
Take this linen pants by Michael Kors, for example. White or off-white colors are classic in style and appeal, and Michael Kors creates timeless pieces very well. You can definitely dress this up by pairing this bad boy with either a bright/spring-color button down shirt (think baby blue, spring green, or yellow in either linen, cotton, cotton blends), a nice brown or black leather belt, and definitely some Kenneth Cole shoes, and accessorized by your choice of watch and rings. Or, you can tone it down a notch with either a short-sleeve polo pique from Armani Exchange and driving mocs from Sketchers or Banana Republic to make it a bit more relaxed and fun. Want a totally casual feel? Get some funky tees from Armani Exchange or Express and follow it up with nice spring sandals.
There are great sales going on right now at Nordstrom, so go check them out and have fun!
