Kate Spade New York, an upscale retailer known for graphic prints that sells handbags, clothing, jewelry, eyewear and home decor, will open an outlet store at Nebraska Crossings Outlets in Gretna.

The Kate Spade outlet store will be the retailer's first Nebraska store, with the closest full-price stores in Denver and Kansas City, Mo. The closest Kate Spade outlet is in Aurora, Ill., and one just opened in Chandler, Ariz. The company operates 52 full-price and 33 outlet stores in the United States.

The brand also is sold at at such department stores as Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale's and Lord & Taylor.

Nebraska Crossing, the $112 million, 350,000-square-foot open-air shopping center under construction at the intersection of Interstate 80 and U.S. Highways 6 and 31, is scheduled to open Nov. 15 with 65 brands, many of them new to the Nebraska market. So far, four eateries and 46 retailers, including Kate Spade, have announced plans to open factory or outlet stores at the reconfigured mall. A complete list is at Omaha.com.

Yates has said there are only five remaining storefronts available of the 65 currently under construction, and he already has discussed a $15 million expansion for 20 more retailers.
