I think it's the white stuff you can see on the mountains beyond the mountains beyond the hills.  If you're not doing anything today, you can spend a few hours driving towards the white stuff on the distant mountains and see what it is.
The Beverly Connection Nordstrom Rack never has much of a selection of Allen-Edmonds shoes.  When I go there (to buy Woodlore Shoe Trees) I always park at a metered space on 3rd Street, which are fairly easy to find if you get there around the same time in the morning the stores open (as shown here).
