FINALLY! Shop Online at H&M

It took a LONG time, but we can now shop online at H&M!! The retailer is offering a wide range of clothing and accessories for men, women, teens, children and plus size. There will also be additional sizes and exclusive “online-only” items available all year round.

I like H&M, but depending on which store you visit, it can be too crowded (F Street NW in DC on a Thursday or Friday) or too messy (F Street NW in DC on a Thursday or Friday). Online shopping makes things so much easier and more convenient. You may want to purchase a pair of printed pants, but just don’t have the time to go to a store. Now ordering is one click away!

For those in need of home decor, the H&M Home Collection is also available exclusively online. The collection includes towels, bed linens, curtains, and other home textiles and accessories in trendy colors and prints.

“We are thrilled to launch online shopping in the U.S.,” says Daniel Kulle, U.S. President for H&M. “This significant milestone fully rounds out H&M’s multichannel offering.  Along with close to 300 stores, our U.S. customers will now have twenty four hour access to the best of our fashion and home collections via their computers, smartphones, and tablets from anywhere in the U.S.”

Yep, you can download the H&M app! Sign up for the newsletter HERE to receive coupons and free shipping.

H&M will also offer exclusive online pre-shopping of its Paris Show Collection.  Presented first on the runway during Paris Fashion Week, this collection will debut globally in approximately 200 stores and online September 5th. U.S. customers will have the opportunity to be the first to shop the collection online August 22nd.

So who will be spending time today, while you’re at work, checking out H&M Online? Don’t worry, I won’t tell!

Support Dress for Success By Shopping At JCPenney

Like many large retailers, JCPenney is committed to giving back to the community and wants to encourage customers to do the same.  This year each month, the company will support a worthy cause by inviting customers to round up their purchases at the register to the nearest whole dollar and donate the difference to the featured charity partner. Customers will also have the option to round up their online purchases when they shop at jcp.com.

You all know that I am a supporter of Dress for Success. I have volunteered with the DC affiliate for years and truly believe in the work they do to help improve the lives of women. This month, JCP is partnering with Dress for Success for this round up at the register initiative.  So far this month, JCPenney has raised $245,933.

Dress for Success provides professional attire, a network of support and career development tools to help women thrive in the workplace and in life. Worldwide, the organization has served over 650,000 women through more than 120 affiliates in 13 countries.

JCPenney has really stepped their game up in terms of its apparel offerings over the years. I found a few skirts at the store for a client last year and a friend recently purchase really cute tops.  If you plan on shopping this month, please consider making a purchase at JCPenney to support Dress for Success.  I know I will!

Learn more about JCPenney’s round up at the register initiative HERE.

EVENT RECAP: Nordstrom Rack Tysons Corner Sneak Peek

On Monday, I was invited to attend the Nordstrom Rack Tysons Corner sneak peek event. The new Nordstrom Rack is located on Leesburg Pike right next to Fairfax Square. The new store is HUGE!  It’s two levels with women’s clothing and shoes taking up the entire second floor.

Upon arrival, each guest was given a Nordstrom Rack bag (I look forward to using when I go shopping in Montgomery County or DC since they charge $.5 per bag). The sneak peek allowed guests to enjoy drinks, food and shop.  I’m not sure what’s featured at other Nordstrom Rack stores in the area, but Tysons Corner featured major designers including Alice + Olivia, Michael Kors, Alexander McQueen, Helmut Lang, Tracy Reese and many more.

Check out a few sneak peek pictures:

Greeted with drinks!

Nordstrom Rack features Helmut Lang, Alexander McQueen, Alice + Olivia and more!

Alice + Olivia gold sequin dress

Lots of designer shoes including Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Stuart Weitzman, and DVF.

Dolce & Gabbana glasses $34.97 to $89.97

In person this skirt is more burgundy than red as shown in the picture offering two fall trends in one: burgundy & leather!

Patricia serving delicious treats.

I didn’t do a lot of shopping at the sneak peak event.  The lines to the fitting rooms were long and although they did sell designer labels for less, the prices were more than I wanted to spend so I opted for this Kensie sweater on clearance.

Originally $78. Clearance for $15.

If you’re interested in shopping at the new Nordstrom Rack location, the store opens Thursday, September 13, 2012 at 9am. Happy Shopping!
