As avowed bargain lovers, it feels like we’ve been waiting for the new Chevy Chase H&M outpost to open for practically forever. And finally, it’s time: The store officially opened for business today!

Yesterday we scored a pre-opening glimpse at the sparkling 22,000-square-foot store, which sells not only trendy women’s clothing, shoes, and jewelry but also an entire floor’s worth of dapper men’s suiting and casual duds, plus a sizable section of adorable kids gear. Unsurprisingly, it was awesome.

Want proof? Continue on for a eye-candy-loaded tour of the new store, then click through the gallery (bonus!) of eight items we’d snatch up immediately—all affordable and fab, of course. And if you suddenly have to “leave early” from work because you’re “sick” and then find yourself exiting the Friendship Heights Metro, we won’t tell.

(And in related news: H&M’s long-awaited e-commerce is HERE, you guys. The US shopping site quietly launched sometime after midnight on Thursday—after months of delays and only some vague hinting.)

H&M, Chevy Chase Pavilion. 5335 Wisconsin Ave., NW; 855-466-7467. Open Monday through Saturday 10 AM to 8 PM, Sunday 11 AM to 6 PM.
