For more than 70 years, Wells Nursery has decked yards and gardens with a lush selection of distinctive plant and tree species, many of which were discovered and cultivated by Wells Nursery’s co-founder Harold Wells and director of operations Neil Hall. Lovingly adorn lawns with decorative grasses ($9.99/1-gal. pot), or splash front yards with more color than biweekly family paintball fights with evergreen azaleas ($9.99/1-gal. pot). Wells' vegetation virtuosos propagate more than 150 acres of plants on-site to ensure vitality and quality, including a crop of fragrant grafted conifers. The Wells Green Prince ($90+), a slow-growing Lebanon cedar, fits perfectly in small gardens or large pairs of pants, and the Wells Green Knight ($125+), a symmetrical oriental spruce, helps ring in holidays and Tuesday afternoons.

With more than 700 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company’s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.
This naturalistic approach is fully realized in Jamba Juice's selection of smoothies. Made with 100% fruit juice, sherbet, and frozen yogurt, the frosty delights range from all-fruit smoothies such as peach perfection and strawberry whirl to more indulgent creamy treats, including peanut butter moo'd, an enticing blend of peanut butter, bananas, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate.

Wind-up toys and plastic vehicles overflow from toy displays inside Wishes, where shelves full of books, puzzles, and tabletop games entertain visitors.

After traveling from the end of the rainbow to the tip of the North Pole, Easter's original hippity-hoppity star is now claiming seasonal residence at the Tyson Corner Center, Arundel Mills Mall, Potomac Mills Mall, Lakeforest Mall and Marley Station. As both an adorable and educational animal, the bunny associated with Easter will be helping kids get into the spirit of egg-hunting by teaming up with professional photographers who know how to coax giggle-laden smiles out of any bundle of joy. Children can pose with the gregarious giant, embracing fluff-filled hugs, and then later enjoy their shared moments by flipping through their tangible, printed portraits and by fluttering their eyelids at their vibrant, digitally arrested stills.
