Wife just received huge catalog from Nordstrom for February. Was surprised that everything under the sun was advertised in the catalog expect Uggs. Perhaps the February catalog is already gearing to the Spring and Summer.
Yes, they are already pushing Easter/Spring outfits and bathing suits. Uggs has a 2 to 3 month window to push sales.
Perhaps it's thte for the same reason that Best Buy doesn't use much print space to Apple, some things will sell without print advertising.
Viewing the catalog cover is the easiest way to determine the season it represents.
Kind of surprised that Uggs ads were absent. Nordstrom is probably Ugg's biggest vendor. Its still cold in most of the country until mid April.
But fashion is always one season ahead so it would be a spring/summer catalog.
