This post is sponsored by Nordstrom at Fashion Show Mall – I was gifted products for attending this event.
I have been a long time loyal customer of Nordstrom (and Nordstrom Rack), and was surprised to learn of all the services that Nordstrom offered.
I bet you didn't know the things I just learned either.
We recently attended a blogger holiday brunch at the Nordstrom located at Fashion Show Mall in Las Vegas, and was blown away by EVERYTHING.
From the brunch spread, beverage selections, wall of doughnuts, and goodies they gave us — they thought every single thing through to make our blogger experience unforgettable.
And if they put that kind of energy towards bloggers, can you imagine the type of five star treatment they give their customers?!
Well, I am about to blow your mind with the things I learned during the event. You know how I know this? Because they blew my mind too!
Let's get this party started, here we go…
Time saving secrets to shopping Nordstrom
This one's especially for Las Vegas locals – both Fashion Show Mall and Nordstrom are encouraging locals to shop on Thursday because…
Along with free parking and free valet, on Thursdays there is free front row parking for locals on level 2 of the parking deck and only for vehicles with Nevada license plates.
And side note on Fashion Show Mall – they have brand new holiday sets and a brand new out-of-London exclusive to the USA and only at Fashion Show Mall — a holographic experience with Santa called Santagram just right around the corner to Nordstrom! Whoa.
Now this is for those of you who want to save time and hassle by shopping at Nordstrom…these are GOOD…
There are Personal Stylists available to help you find the gifts on your gift list (just hand them your list and off they go!), they'll also help style you for a job or special event.
Go to Guest Services on the day of your purchases on the lower level and get your purchases gift boxed and gift wrapped for free (no minimum purchase amount required, they will gift wrap each purchase for free!). They will also take your bags to your car for you.
Here's your best time saving strategy yet, all figured out by moi!
Make your purchases online plus choose to have your purchase gift wrapped for you, then pick it up in store and ideally on a Thursday if you're local because then you'll get front row parking as a Nevada resident! ALL FOR FREE. Whew.
Have you been shopping all day and now you're hangry? Nordstrom opened a full restaurant called Jeannie's and they serve pizza, pasta, cocktails, espressos, gelato and more!
They also have a Happy Returns service that they've partnered with a few exclusive online retailers that are moving to brick and mortar. If you purchase it online from these exclusive online retailers and don't love it, bring it to Guest Services and they'd be happy to ship the return back for you.
This is just a few of the tips, tricks and secrets but there are MORE that include personalization and customization…
Nordstrom offers custom tailoring and personalized monogramming on any of your purchases that can be monogrammed.
And as for shopping beauty products at Nordstrom – I've got you covered there too.
There's a “try before you buy” in the Beauty department that allows you to sample it for a few days before deciding whether you want to buy the full sized product.
Nordstrom also offers fragrance customization, Beauty Stylist services, Anastasia Lash services, Lancome foundation customization that will make an exact match to your skin tone, and lash application services where one of the beauty consultants will apply any new lashes you purchase for you for free.
Hopefully this guide helps you when it comes time for shopping for the holiday season. I am all for saving time during the holidays, because the holidays are meant to be spent with your family!
