Nordstrom News: The Rack Hits Long Island (@LongIsland_Rack)



Hey House Cats-

So I am excited to announce that Nordstrom Rack is coming to Long Island.  In 1975, Nordstrom opened it’s first clearance store, “Nordstrom Rack” in Seattle.  Fast forward to now, the chain has over 50 stores across the country with several new stores slated to open in the fall.  The Long Island store is set to open during New York Fashion Week on September 13th.  Although, I spend most of my time in Manhattan, I am super excited to have an excuse to visit Long Island.  Normally, I frequent the Nordstrom Rack Union Square store.  The new Nordstrom Rack will be located in the Westbury Plaza.

Since we are on the subject of Long Island, I wanted to take this opportunity to spotlight local hotspots in the unofficial 6th borough, lolll.  So,   when I think of Long Island, I think of family life, predominantly residential, and scenic views.  This is a place for New Yorkers to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.  So what we refer to as a “Hotspot” in the city, is something completely different in Long Island.  For example there is a large agricultural section of Long Island.  I highly recommend visiting some of the Organic Farms and Produce stands.  But before you go, please be sure to stop at Nordstrom Rack  for some stylish farm wear chic clothing.

Northern and Southern areas of Long Island have thousands of acres of vineyards.  Currently, there are over 2 dozen wineries in Long Island that offer tours and wine tastings.  While shopping at the new Long Island Nordstrom Rack, be sure to pick up a few casual, chic, separates… but most importantly play up casual chic, with statement accessories.  See below for example:


Mallary Marks, Alexander McQueen, Guerlain

Well I hope that the above looks have inspired you to check out the new Nordstrom Rack in Long Island.  Below is all of the information you need to know about the new location.  Also, here is a pair of one of my favorite shoes, that I purchased at Nordstrom Rack :)
