Uptown girls: Victoria’s Secret coming soon

A sexy new tenant will take over the former Gap space at Hennepin and Lake this August.

Victoria’s Secret will begin a multimillion-dollar revamp of the 3000 Hennepin Ave. S. property later this summer and plans to open in February. It will be the only non-mall Victoria’s Secret in the state and one of a few in the country designed to test a store concept based on the underwear mogul’s Pink sub-brand.

Shoppers can expect the store’s usual bras, panties, cosmetics, and perfume to be accompanied by loungewear, sleepwear, and other garments within a space that incorporates pink walls, dressing rooms, and furniture, according to a description of the Pink concept on wikipedia.org. Other Pink stores are located in San Francisco, Detroit and Birmingham, Ala.
