OhConcept's design team scouts fresh-from-the-runway silhouettes, accents, and prints to create their line of trendy urban womenswear. Though its apparel is its most prominent department, the OhConcept look doesn't stop at clothes. Designers also keep an eye on the season's hottest fashions to create glittering jewelry, looping infinity scarves, and whimsical home accents.
The knowledgeable staff at Learning Express helps parents navigate a selection of hundreds of educational, time-tested, and eco-friendly playthings for children from birth to age 12. Stuffed animals frolic on the shelves next to classic wooden building blocks, imagination-stimulating toys, and digital learning tools. Customers can surprise budding sleuths with undercover spy cases by Alex ($24.99), soothe bedtime tantrums with twilight turtles ($32.99), or teach favorite babies how to speak horse with plush barnfuls of My Barnyard Friends by Aurora ($19.99). Free gift wrapping at the colorful shop can ease time crunches and provide more decorative packaging for gifts than a pile of credit-card receipts sewn together.
Signature facials begin with a skin analysis to aid the aesthetician in selecting which type of exfoliation to use—either an ultrasonic system or an enzyme-based hydrating treatment using a custom blend of serums. Lifting massages cosset cheeks into bigger passport-photo smiles and a therapeutic mask nourishes each visage before the facial finishes with a deeply hydrating flourish. Breathe life into faded faces with an oxygen treatment, which infuses the epidermis with nutrients and pure gusts of air. Time-released breezes roust cells to stimulate new formation and restore a healthy, youthful glow akin to a newborn star. Post-treatment, the aesthetician treats skin to a hydrating massage and closes up pores with a therapeutic mask. Inside the studio's calming interior, light-lavender walls fade into crisp white trim punctuated by bright floral blooms of color.

The company’s “shopping angels” then deliver groceries for a flat-rate fee and set up recurring deliveries if desired.
