Merrifield (Mosaic District) Store – opens this weekend!

Posted by Dawn Price, October 12, 2012

Our fourth (and largest!) Washington DC area store will be opening this Saturday, October 13th, in Merrifield, Virginia. Joining retailers such as Target, South Moon Under and Last Call Studio by Neiman Marcus, we are excited to be part of the exciting new Mosaic District retail and entertainment complex.

If you haven’t been to Merrifield in a while, you may be surprised to see the changes this corner of NoVA has undergone in the past few months.  Long gone are the construction rentals, the car repair shop and the 1970’s multiplex theater.  In their place is a very hip, urban development the likes of which Northern Virginia has not seen.

I’d venture to say the Mosaic District is in the same league as Reston Town Center when it comes to shopping and entertainment. A LEED Silver-certified Neighborhood Development Program, the Mosaic center features a unique urban design where similar retailers are grouped into “districts” making for easier shopping, dynamic nightlife and a thoughtful residential experience. Fashion, Markets, Film & Dining and Residential properties are purposefully located, making for an easy visit.  Sidewalks are wide, parking is generous, walking distance to the Metro – what’s not to love?

Given all of this, it was an easy decision to open our second NoVa location here.  Reston Town Center and Mosaic both offer my fellow suburban parents something that has been missing – a family-friendly place to stroll, shop, eat, live and simply relax. I’m excited that my store is part of this mix of retailers, especially given that we are a local chain, born right here in Washington DC.

The weekend weather looks to be sunny and in the 60’s — a perfect DC fall weekend.  Put on a cozy sweater, dust off your boots and bring your family to our newest store at the Mosaic District.  We’ll have balloon makers, an ice cream truck and enjoy 10% off your purchase on opening day (excludes strollers, gift cards and custom orders).

Reston Town Center Store Grand Opening!

Posted by Dawn Price, June 1, 2012

We are excited to announce the grand opening of our Reston Town Center store! We will open the doors to our first Northern Virginia location TOMORROW, Saturday, June 2 at 10:00am.

The last few months have been a whirlwind of activity as we built out the Reston Town Center location, carefully converting the space to meet our Dawn Price Baby standards.  Tucked neatly between Vapiano eatery and the Paper Source, our 1500 square foot store offers Northern Virginia parents a resource for top notch baby gear and super adorable accessories all managed by our friendly and knowledgeable staff.

To properly celebrate the momentous day, we’ve lined up some amazing family friendly treats for you.  Starting at 10:00am, world renowned silhouette artist, Keith Donaldson from Walt Disney World will be onsite to create beautiful silhouettes of your little ones.  Pricing information and appointments are available on our website.  A perfect gift for Father’s Day (June 17). Be sure to sign up!

We’ll also have delicious organic muffins made my Momme Meals™. Using the finest farm-fresh organic and locally sourced ingredients, Momme Meals are nutritionally developed for moms and moms-to-be. A quick scan of their products has my mouth watering — Green Goddess Soup, Chicken Pot Pie and Lemon Lavender Blueberry Muffins – YUM!  Featured on NBC4 and in the Washington Post Express, Momme Meals is a quick and easy solution for pregnant, nursing and/or busy moms (and dads, too).  Stop by and grab a muffin (or two) and get some information about this great local resource!

Look for balloons and an ice cream truck there, too.  The Reston Town Center with its stroller-friendly sidewalks, kid-friendly fountains and mommy-friendly shops is a perfect location for our latest store.

Be sure to stop by and say hello!

Exciting News! We’re Growing!

Posted by Dawn Price, December 7, 2011

Today we took an exciting step forward and announced that we will be opening two new stores in the thriving Northern Virginia area in 2012.  In February, we will open our third location at the Reston Town Center, then add a fourth location in the Mosaic District of Merrifield, Virginia in the Fall. 

The new Reston store will join a variety of retailers such as Anthropologie, South Moon Under and J Crew on Market Street, occupying space between the Vapiano eatery and the Paper Source.  With approximately 1500 square feet of space, our Reston Town Center store will offer an extended collection of name brand clothing, strollers, carriers, high chairs and other baby gear. 

Reston Town Center - Coming Soon Sign!

The new Merrifield location, scheduled to open in October 2012 will become our largest store at approximately 1800 square feet!  Here we will continue to grow our product offering and knowledge base to be the number one resource for baby needs. 

With these great new spaces, we can showcase “best of the best” baby products to shoppers in this area. Because Northern Virginia is dominated by bigger box stores, we see a real need for specialty retailers like Dawn Price Baby and the kind of expertise we can offer. As our customers know, we’ve done the research, driven the strollers, tested the furniture and put our own children in the clothes we carry. We can tell you what works, recommend baby gear, and help you find the perfect gift.

So look for us in the Reston Town Center this February and in the Mosaic District in the Fall, and stay tuned here at the Dawn Price Baby Blog or our Facebook page for photos and more info on the new spaces!

Sugar Cone Custom Ice Cream Cone Growth Charts

Posted by Dawn Price, October 15, 2010

We have a new product alert at Dawn Price Baby — Ice Cream Cone Growth Charts!  Sugar Cone was started by two local (DC metro area) designer moms that have put together the best of their creative talents to bring us a new product as unique as your little one.  :)

These adorable growth charts are hand-painted with love and embellished with various media including individually hand-cut papers, gems, beads, felt, sparkly glitter and lots of other fun “toppings” the designers can get their hands on!  The charts are made of solid mdf board and are 5′ tall x 9″ wide. They are coated with a clear protective finish.  Before you ask, I will tell you that all products used are child-safe and the clear protective coating is put over the entire growth chart to seal all embellishments onto the chart so they don’t come off.  Even better, the sealant makes the growth chart easy to clean!  How great is that!?

To begin customizing your growth chart, you can start by reviewing the various ice cream scoops and you pick your favorite 14 flavors.  There is actually 15 scoops on each growth chart, but the 15th is called Top That and it is automatically included on each chart by the designers.  After that, you pick the paint color that you want mixed with a white stripe to be the background of the chart itself.  The designers have chosen to use only Benjamin Moore paint for quality. 

Once you have done those exciting steps, you next get to decide if you want to add even more personalization to the chart with the child’s name, add measurements (ruler) on the left side and / or choose to include the names of the ice cream scoops you have choosen on the right.  Each growth chart can be as individual and unique as the child you are buying it for! 

If all of these options are overwhelming, then no worries!  The designers also offer 3 Signature Cone growth charts that are tried and true combinations of flavors. If you love the flavors selected or don’t want to go through the process of picking 14 of the 15 flavors with the custom growth charts, then all you have to do is just decide on the perfect paint color for your stripes and the level of customization you want on your chart (measurement numbers along the left side, flavor names along the right side, and whether you want a child’s name at the top of the chart).

There are three signature cones available: Girly Swirly, All Shook Up and Bazooka Boy. All of these charts include “Top That” at the tippy-top of the cone. Each Signature Cone growth chart flavors(see sketch of each growth chart in other images above) are (in no particular order):

  •  Girly Swirly – Carmel Swirl, Coming Up Daisies, Hello, Cupcake!, Peachy Keen, Strawberry Sizzle, Lemon Zinger, Mint Chip, Glass Slipper, Princess for a Day, Sprinkle Sparkle, Treasure Trove, My Funny Valentine, Butterfly Bliss, and I Scream, You Scream
  • Bazooka Boy – Out of this World, In a Pinch, Quarterback Crunch, Peace Out, Baseball Nut, Caramel Swirl, I Get a Kick Out of You, Robot Ripple, Rocky Road, Puppy Dog Tails, Are We There Yet?, Sarge in Charge, Chocolicioius and Anchors Away
  • All Shook Up – Rocky Road, Head in the Clouds, Bubblegum, Mint Chip, Pie in the Sky, Caramel Swirl, Treasure Trove, Lemon Zinger, Apple of My Eye, Pirate Paradise, Chocolicious, M&M Mayhem, Are We There Yet? and Rainbow Ribbons
