It's no secret that a suburban outpost of your favorite chain store is like a mecca for good stuff — seriously, when was the last time you went to a Target outside the District and didn't buy something? So, we were pretty psyched to get word that a brand-new H&M is opening on Thursday in downtown Silver Spring (which already has some pretty good shopping going on).
We're already daydreaming about a non-picked-over selection of stylish coats, affordable accessories, and perfect layering pieces — especially when they're just a few steps away from ULTA, DSW, Chick-fil-A, and Cold Stone Creamery. Yes, it's the out-of-the-District day of our dreams.
When the store opens at noon, the first 100 people in line will snag a free T-shirt and an "Access to Fashion" pass, which is worth anywhere from $10 to $300 in H&M purchases. But we're doing you one better: We've got three $100 gift cards to give away to three lucky readers — all you have to do is leave a comment telling us what you'd buy with your $100 card, and we'll choose three winners by tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. Ready, set — go!
Where: 8518 Fenton Street, Silver Spring; 855-466-7467.
