On the Road with the BP. Prom Truck

Hi, BP. friends! It’s Kassi, the Nordstrom social media maven, here to tell you about our adventures on the road with the BP. prom truck. On Friday, the little pink VW bus braved the icy streets of downtown Chicago. We chatted with girls about prom on their way home from school, danced the night away with shoppers on Michigan Avenue and munched on my favorite local snack, Garrett’s popcorn.

My favorite memories from the weekend are taking selfies in the van’s cute photo booth, dancing the night away to our prom playlist to keep warm and posting to Instagram using #NordstromBP to share the journey.

I fell in love with the Hailey Logan Cutout Glitter Mesh Ballgown, which I texted to my sister. She’s currently shopping for her own senior prom. She’s been browsing for a dress on Pinterest and Wanelo.

P.S. Keep an eye out for the BP. Prom bus in New Jersey (3/7-9), Dallas (3/14-16), Denver (3/21-23), SoCal (3/28-30) and Washington (4/4-6). Let us know if you see the bus via #nordstrombp! Until then, check out the prom shop on Nordstrom.com or at your local Nordstrom store.

    Awe man! :( I wish there was a Florida stop, that would have been really cool to experience.

  • connie March 30, 2014, 12:15 pm

    do u ever carry plus size dresses for jr.prom or senior ball

  • Taylor April 1, 2014, 9:50 am

    No PA this year :'( I’m sad

  • Amy Leigh, Blog Contributor April 1, 2014, 10:30 am

    Sorry, Taylor!

  • Amy Leigh, Blog Contributor April 1, 2014, 10:47 am

    Connie, we do carry plus-size dresses for prom and other formal occasions. If you’re shopping online, you can filter by size within the prom shop by clicking the Juniors L and XL boxes, as well as the Regular L and XL boxes.

    Your best shopping experience will probably happen in your local store, however, with the help of a personal stylist (the service is totally free, and they won’t pressure you to buy things you don’t want or can’t afford). We carry a large selection of dresses in store that aren’t offered online, and a personal stylist will be able to quickly and easily find dresses in your favorite colors and styles. You can call to set up an appointment with a stylist, who will have your dressing room ready when you arrive, stocked with gorgeous plus-size options for you to choose from. :)

    Will the truck be coming to Wisconsin soon? Specifically the Port Washington, Grafton, Cedarburg, area?

  • Amy Leigh, Blog Contributor April 7, 2014, 10:15 am

    I’m afraid not. The prom truck has completed its tour for the 2014 season.

  • Katie April 8, 2014, 4:52 pm

    Who would I contact about booking the bus for a mobile event in San Diego?

  • Amy Leigh, Blog Contributor April 8, 2014, 4:54 pm

    Hi, Katie! Unfortunately, the bus has retired for the year and isn’t available for bookings. Sorry! :(
