The long (long!) awaited store opening is finally upon us, and quite frankly, its like Christmas is coming twice this year. On Thursday, April 2nd, the cheap and chic British powerhouse will open its doors in Soho, offering up uber trendy dresses, tops and pants, as well as accessories. The highlights also include Kate Moss’s line for the store; the spring line hits shelves on April 2nd as well.
The store’s coveted Style Advisor program is also coming stateside – upon arrival at your appointment, you will be able to enjoy refreshments while you shop in private VIP suites and skip the line at the register. The multi-level (four to be exact) store will have an entire level dedicated to shoes, appropriately titled The Shoe Lounge and an entire level for Top men.
The store opening promises an entire week of special events. The Woodley and Bunny Salon, co-owned by Erin Anderson, a well-known stylist, is offering complementary hair styling by top hair professionals. Alumni from Bumble and Bumble, Toni & Guy and Vidal Sassoon are now part of the Woodley and Bunny team. Offered on a first come, first served basis, shoppers can receive a choice of three complimentary spring hairstyles, from 1-6 pm, April 2nd-5th.
The week will also be host to other special events, from makeovers by Make Up For Ever and manicures by Valley to a whole line up of guest DJs.
