Disclosure: I was invited to be a blogger hostess for Hanna Andersson at their pre-opening day event. I received a gift card toward my purchase, but I shop there all the time and bought products on my own at the event. All opinion expressed within are my own. #ilovemyhannas
I am a true Hanna Andersson fangirl. I have – more often than I will admit – visited a mall 150 miles from my house to see items in store before ordering online.
Today, that has become a tale of the past, because, tomorrow a Hanna Andersson store opens in King of Prussia mall!
The night before the grand opening, I had the unique experience of touring the store and shopping my heart (see my haul later!). I have two big reasons I love Hanna Andersson. They design clothes that are culturally relevant to my kids and they make clothes to last my through the wear and tear that my boys exert on them.
Hanna did Star Wars this year and did it WELL. Anyone who knows Hanna Andersson knows that their sleepwear is at the head of the pack, and anyone who knows my boys knows they can recite the first 6 episodes of Star Wars from memory (slight exaggeration, but you get the point). My boys eat, breathe, and sleep Star Wars. Hey, even I am going to the new movie because I don’t want to be left out of all of their conversations for the next year!
How cute is this backpack??
Now I got nostalgic when I saw this Peanuts backpack. Apparent I was not the only one, as the super stylish guy working the cash register said this is his first item he is buying tomorrow when the store opens. It was implied that this will be for him. The cool factor on this backpack just went through the roof.
I bought 3 of the santa hats in this picture. They are the softest, most well made hats I have ever seen. There was no way they were not coming home with me.
Home Decor and Women’s Fashion
The King of Prussia store also has a home decor and women’s section. I pretty much had to hightail it out of that section before I came home with one of each – yes it was all that cute.
Matching Christmas Jammies
Hanna Andersson has you cover for your holiday photos and matching Christmas Eve jammies. How sweet are the classic Hanna stripes? Do you spy the Mrs. Claus nightgown?
I bought several items at the Hanna Andersson KOP grand opening sale and my kids are going to be thrilled. Woven hats, moccasin slippers, and jammies all around.
As a testament to how down to Earth Hanna Andersson is, my friend Beth and I were approached by the President and CEO of Hanna Andersson – Adam Stone – asking us why we love our Hannas. He was a kind man who listened to the voices of his brand’s loyal customers. I have been to many grand openings in my time and have never seen a CEO at the event. I left even more in love with the brand knowing that their own leaders believe enough in a store opening to come spend time with consumers and really engage them in conversation.
OK, are you local to the King of Prussia and Philadelphia area and want to shop for you, your little one, or your home?
