If you follow me via twitter, you already know my big story. If not, I made it out to the H&M preview grand opening last night! The “popup store” temporarily opened up its doors in the former Express space and will be around until April 2011. The official store will be opening up in October of 2011. This smaller store is simply an opportunity for Dallas residents to get a sampling of their collection early. There will supposedly be events every three weeks where they will showcase new items. And supposedly there is new inventory arriving daily. Here is a picture of the front store display:
By the time I arrived around 5:30pm, the store was pretty packed and there were lots of excited men and women shopping the racks. Surprisingly enough, there were still quite a few small sizes left in lots of styles and I saw even associates restocking a few select items throughout the night.
The worst part was the lines. I ended up waiting 30 minutes to get into the dressing room. But walked out with three items. I deem it a success!
My final snag for the night was actually at Forever 21. I had noticed a leopard print skinny belt on their website the night before and was lucky enough to find it in the store! It’s the perfect light leopard color and very snaggable at only $2.50. It actually sold out online already, so hurry and pick it up at your local store!
So there you have it. My evening’s activities and haul in a nutshell. And now, it’s bedtime. ^_^
