Nordstrom is expanding their empire, gracing the already-tony Fashion Island with a gigantic store. (We are so jealous. Orange County is getting a lot of good retail action; more news to come on that next week.) The store opens on April 16. We've heard there's going to be a party. And possibly some giveaways—to their Facebook friends, hint hint. Sign up, and maybe get deets even before we do. [Racked Inbox]
