New H&M to Open in Washington, DC!

With all this Jimmy Choo talk, I omitted a completely noteworthy tidbit for my DC-area readers.

I got an email from H&M today confirming this Thursday’s opening of the new H&M store at Lakeforest Mall in Gaithersburg, MD.

The first 100 shoppers will receive an H&M Access to Fashion Pass with random values of $10, $25, $50, $75, or $100.

I’m guessing any passes in the $50-$100 range will be pretty scarce but for what it’s worth, good luck!

For more grand opening details, follow H&M USA on Twitter.

And, oh. Happy shopping!
