34th Street Mother's Day Picks

Here's a few of our favorite 34th Street things, well, retailers, to mine for your Mother's Day shopping needs:

Macy's Herald Square Buy her some fabulous skincare or get her some new beauty supplies from her favorite brand. The Herald Square Macy's beauty department on the first floor is a thing of, yes, beauty.

The Bobbi Brown Classics Collection, $140 value for $70.
The Masker Trio, $58 value for $30. I own, use, and highly recommend all three of these.

Pandora Herald Square She'll love just about anything you choose from this gorgeous new Pandora boutique that has a great reputation for stellar customer service. Stop by and pick up the Mother's Day set, available while supplies last, so hurry!

See store for details

Garrett Popcorn Shop Perhaps I'm biased, but I'm a mom, and I love popcorn. I'd pretty much jump up and down for joy if, instead of flowers, I received a big bag of The Mix.

It's SO GOOD. My husband better be reading...

H&M Herald Square Flagship: Coming this Summer

Update #3: Today in Racked, H&M confirms that they are keeping all stores on 34th Street open. I wonder how many other cities have three of the same store in a one-block radius? None, right?!

Update to the update: the store is opening May 20 at noon with a performance by John Legend! This is big. This means Chrissy Teigen might be hanging out at H&M Herald Square.

Update: the new H&M Herald Square flagship, the largest H&M to date at 63,000-square-feet on four floors, will open soon. As in, "Coming Summer 2015."

WWD reported last month that the new flagship store in Herald Center would open "next month," but as the new sign above says "Summer 2015" let's just pencil in "maybe late May." No word yet on what is coming in to the H&M across the street at 1378 Broadway, but stay tuned. I'm going to miss that store, namely for nostalgia's sake as its maternity section got me through many big belly months with their leggings, drop-crotch pants, and dresses.

34th Street really ♥'s H&M.
