Get ready, Cedar Park residents. Mega fashion retailer H&M is set to open a location in Lakeline Mall this summer.

This marks the third Austin outpost for the Sweden-based company, known for its racks of trendy yet affordable apparel. The first H&M opened at The Domain in 2012 and the second opened at Hill Country Galleria in 2016.

"H&M has experienced a warm welcome from customers and fans in Texas and is happy to continue to expand its store and employee count in the state," the company said in a release. 

The Lakeline Mall store, coming in at 21,000 square feet, promises to be a one-stop shopping destination for the entire family. It boasts apparel for ladies, men, and teens. The store will carry H&M's children's collections, too, featuring baby and tot-sized pieces to outfits for 14-year-olds.

The retailer is famous for its designer collaborations, including past collections with Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Alexander Wang, and Balmain. 

H&M first launched in the U.S. in 2000, simultaneously opening three stores in New York City. Since then, the company expanded its North American footprint to include nearly 600 stores in the U.S., with 40 of those in Texas alone.
