So, any disbelief in god has vanished with the most spectacular of announcements - something so incredible, so unbelievable, I'm still in fashion-shock.
I'm just going to throw this out there and say that this is by far the brightest day in Nashville fashion history, and here's why: WE ARE GETTING AN H&M.
Pause. I know you need a moment to collect yourself. I'm still suffering from a total head rush.
The billion dollar a year fashion business will be landing itself right in the center of our mainstream shopping Mecca, Opry Mills mall. I'm really not quite sure how I feel about that decision - but what's that age old adage? Beggars can't be choosers. Or something.
Specifics and dates aren't really around to announce yet, but I'm just hoping that this isn't a giant tease. Every Nashville fashion junkie I know has been praying for this moment for years.
You can read more about the announcement HERE and what to expect from the mega-retailer HERE from the Nashville Business Journal.
The Women's Fund has partnered up with one of my favorite Nashville based style blogs, StyleBlueprint to bring you the best of designer fashion without the designer price-tags, all the while supporting a great cause!
The Women's Fund supports women and girls of all ages and walks of life in the Middle Tennessee area - providing funding to programs that help women achieve economic self sufficiency, programs that promote health and well being and also the prevention of violence.
You can purchase early bird tickets (Thursday, 1/31 at 6pm) to get first dibs on all of the available designer goods (75-90% off) for $75 HERE - which includes food & drinks. Full proceeds from the early bird sale and entire consignment benefit go to TWF.
If you're unable to fork over the $75, never fear - Friday & Saturday (2/1 & 2/2) entrance fees are just a suggested donation of $5.
Thursday (1/31) - Early Bird Event 6pm to 9pm
Friday (2/1) - 9am to 6pm
Saturday (2/2) - 8am to 12pm
