People really, really like working at Nordstrom
For the 20th year in a row, Nordstrom has earned a spot on the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list, coming in at 94 this year. The retailer is one of just twelve companies who have made this achievement, and is alone in the fashion apparel space. "Nordstrom has done the hard work of creating, maintaining and improving a culture that puts people at the center," said Michael C. Bush, chief executive officer of consulting firm Great Place to Work, to WWD. "And they have reaped the business advantages that come with high-trust workplace relationships." {WWD}

Is Anthropologie having an identity crisis?
After a sixth consecutive quarter of lagging sales, it seems that Urban Outfitters-owned Anthropologie is having issues figuring out what shoppers actually want. Between the retailer's inconsistent pricing (casual dresses can range anywhere from $78 to $578) and lack of trend-based offerings, if the store wants to stay competitive, it needs to identify who their customer is — and ask themselves whether she's looking to fill her closet with $500 caftans. {Chicago Tribune}

Macy's is experimenting with self-service sales model
In an attempt to cut costs without sacrificing customer service, Macy's is testing the self-service model in select departments, beginning with footwear. At these select "open sell" locations, customers will be able to grab their own size and colors from stacks of shoeboxes, sans salesperson running back-and-forth. {Fortune}

Grace Elizabeth lands her first Vogue cover
The Florida-born model is on the April 2017 cover of Vogue Russia, photographed by Paola Kudacki and styled by Natasha Royt. And while Elizabeth has walked the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and even appeared in previous international Vogue editorials, a cover is a huge achievement for any model. Congrats! {Instagram/@lovegrace_e}

Kate Moss to appear in "Love Actually" sequel

MAC Cosmetics is finally coming to Ulta
In a major move for the cosmetics brand, it's been announced that MAC will (finally!) be stocked at Ulta Beauty. The brand's offerings will be available first via Ulta's e-commerce site from May and will hit 25 select locations the following month. By the end of the year, MAC is aiming to be carried at over 100 Ulta stores, according to MAC global brand president Karen Buglisi Weiler. {WWD}
