"Rack" N Roll...

Shopping in Kansas City is getting better by the day, and today is no exception. The state of Kansas' first  Nordstrom Rack is finally opening its doors to the public and you better believe it's going to be quite a grand opening.

If you are not familiar, the Nordstrom Rack is the off-price division of Nordstrom Inc which offers on-trend clearance from Nordstrom stores as well as items purchased specifically for the Rack. The best part is, you will find 30-70% savings on all of your favorite name brands.

I had a chance to get a sneak peek before today's grand opening and I can't wait to share with you all of my favorite things about the Rack.

The coat department is jam packed with fantastic styles and amazing prices. There were Michael Kors leathers from $139-$189 and DKNY wool coats from $119-$129. And, as you can see from the photo, they were very on trend with fur jackets and vests.

They had quite an assortment of accessories. I was drawn to the cold weather items like hats and gloves. They have great gift sets just in time for the holidays.

I got totally distracted in the handbag department. They have Kate Spade bags from $129-$279

And my favorite was their selection of Halston Heritage bags which range from $119-$279. This one was calling my name! ($198)

And it wouldn't be a Nordstrom without SHOES. This Nordstrom Rack has over 25,000 pairs of Men's, Women's and Kids shoes. The assortment is astounding; I was completely in awe of everything to choose from. Just to give you an idea, here is the kids shoe section...

They have Men's, Women's and Kids apparel. There is such a wide selection, that you would be hard pressed not to find something for someone in your life.

In the women's department there are racks and racks full of designer merchandise like Lafayette 148, Tahari, Rebecca Taylor, Tory Burch, Vince, Splendid, James name it, they have got it!

They have one of the best premium denim departments I have seen in a discount store. Over 2,000 pairs for Men and Women, to be exact. In Women's they have J.Brand for $59.97-$79.97, Joes for $59.97-$79.97 and 7 For All Mankind for $69.97-$99.97.

And for the guys I saw everything from hip button down shirts by Taylorbird to beautiful wool suits. I was drawn to the ties which were a crazy good deal. They have Robert Talbott ties for $34.97! They also have on site tailoring which is a huge plus.

So for all of you early birds reading this, opening day festivities start at 7AM! They will have a drawing for a 90 second, $2,000 shopping spree. The winner will be drawn at 8:45 right before the doors open at 9. They will be giving out a cool reusable tote for the first 1,000 customers as well as complimentary refreshments for the early shoppers.

The Nordstrom Rack is located at 9540 Quivira Road in the Orachard Corners shopping center. Hours will be 9:30-9 Monday thru Saturday and 11-6 on Sunday.
