Breaking news! H&M clothing coming to O-town


Deep breath. Say it three times. Pinch yourself.

This is not a dream.

Florida's very first H&M clothing is going to be an hour and a half from Tampa Bay.

Here's the scoop: H&M clothing is the anchor tenant of a new lifestyle center at Florida Mall in Orlando. It is opening in the fall, according to the Orlando Business Journal. You can even see the trademark red logo on this pretty rendering of what the mall expansion is going to look like.

Brace yourself, divas: This news gets better!

We just got off the phone with Kimbra Hennessy, spokeswoman for the mall's owner, Simon Property Group. A second H&M is in the works for Seminole Towne Center, located in Orlando's northern suburbs.

Yes, we are green with envy that Orlando got H&M first. But we'll get over it, like we did the Ikea slight.

Repeat after me: H&M clothing is coming!! In a matter of months!!

How fast can we say road trip? And three cheers to reader D, for bringing this newsy tidbit to our attention!

P.S. We'll let you know as we get more details after the Memorial Day holiday.
