Denver Pavilions Gets Anchor In Swedish-Based Clothing Retailer
Hundreds of would-be bargain hunters lined up today to witness the opening of Denver's newest retailer, Swedish-based H&M clothing stores. Lines wrapped the understated outdoor mall, with the promise of valuable grand opening gear such as H&M T-shirts and fashion bucks called H&M Access To Fashion Passes, in amounts from $10 to $500, offered to the first 500 shoppers. Denver Pavilions was all a-bustle today, as cooperative as Denver's climate can be, it was a warm pre-holiday spectacle at a sunny 60-ish degrees.
Amid the dog-walkers, the sunshine, and the free mall rides, I spied holiday lustre taking shape, in the form of bauble lights in free-form trees...
This being Denver Arts Week there were extra incentives for braving the throngs of opening day-revelers. Welcoming the newest member of the Pavilion's family of retailers to our city of art, our lunchtime festivities today included an exhibition of Denver's artistic talents from an event they are calling Street Style, which included a performance by Ballet Nouveau Colorado, and a fashion fix for the fashion fabulous, represented by trendy finds from Forever 21, Banana Republic, Express, and Gap, on gorgeous runway models with names that inspire success.
It's only November 10, you've got 45 shopping days, and now even more reason to be in downtown Denver.
Denver Arts Week runs through November 12 this year, and is an annual event celebrating the elaborate, and sometimes whimsical, arts and culture scene in Denver.
