Fashion Insider: First H&M in Texas will open in Dallas

Posted in Fashion Insider by SMUstyle on October 26, 2010

SMUstyle just got word that H&M is opening its first store in Texas, here in Dallas! The store will open sometime in the second half of 2011, at where else but NorthPark Center. It’s about time!  — H&M has approximately 200 stores in the U.S. and rumors have been circulating for years about a store opening in either Houston or Dallas. H&M could not open soon enough in The Lonestar State. We’ve already had to endure enough national magazine coverage of H&M’s epic past designer collaborations with greats like Karl Lagerfeild, Stella McCartney, Matthew Williamson, Jimmy Choo, Roberto Cavalli and currently Lanvin. It’s been just cruel having to sit here in Dallas with no means beyond EBAY for securing H&M’s designer deals and cheap chic clothes.

More Pink Memo pics here!Seniors Kara Jones (first brunette from the left in lbd) and Morgan Hobbs (first blonde from the left in lbd) compete in the Christian Louboutin Red Sole Strut at the grand opening of the Christian Louboutin boutique in Highland Park Village. The girls worked the red carpet in their favorite red-bottomed pumps, but unfortunately didn’t walk away with the title of Miss. Christian Louboutin. We still love them (and their shoes) though!

Dine Dish: Pinkberry Dallas Opening

pinkberryThe yogurt phenomenon continues in Dallas with the original virtuoso of them all, Pinkberry. From Orange Cup, to Gooeys, to Yogalicious to Menchie’s – it’s safe to say there is no frozen yogurt shortage in Dallas. Tonight Pinkberry opens the doors of its first shop in the Lone Star State, on the corner of Preston and Royal. Pinkberry reinvented the frozen treat and made all things yogurt trendy way back in 2005 with celeb healthy dessert devotees in Hollywood. What makes their yogurt so yummy? Pinkberry is made with premium nonfat, rBST hormone-free milk, using only Grade A fresh fruit that is cut daily in each store.
Experience Pinkberry tonight from 6 to 10 p.m. with a FREE small cup (w/toppings) of their signature swirly goodness.
