The items and layout of Anthro look heavenly, though, the prices may scare you. Fret not, the sale section is probably where most people go and they usually have discounts from time to time. So take advantage when you can! I've bought a few things from Anthro, including their iconic monogram mugs, tea cups, home decor, and a few on sale Tops.
Anthropologie has a nice selection of dresses, tops and stuff that your Mom would like. It's hard to explain but it is a mixture of really nice sundresses and tops and then some more country style stuff that would probably appeal to your Mother or Grandmother.
I found a few things I really liked but found that most of it was overpriced and made in China with cheap materials. Sundresses are at least $130 - $200. They do have a nice sale section where I found a top I really like for $30.
The Rockefeller Center location had really nice selection and very good service. I'll definitely go back as there are a number of beautiful things but it's not in my top 10.
