A Los Angeles City Council panel has approved plans for renovation of the Sherman Oaks Galleria. By a unanimous vote, the City Council Planning and Land Use Committee on Tuesday gave a thumbs up to plans by Douglas, Emmett and Co. to add a theater with up to 4,000 seats and increase the office space at the mall to a total of about 600,000 square feet. Developers said that a single entertainment company may lease up to half the office space.

Their debut album entered the chart this month at No. 6. In England the record sold more copies than the latest by Justin Timberlake. Reviews have been nearly uniformly ecstatic, as has praise from fellow artists such as Katy Perry and Mumford & Sons. To the uninitiated, Haim's success might resemble the overnight variety. But the L.A. group - built around a trio of sisters - played its first show in 2007. Before that, the siblings performed in a band with their parents, doing Beatles and Prince covers at school functions and church fairs.

Two men robbed a jewelry store in the Sherman Oaks Galleria on Monday night and fled with a "substantial amount" of jewels and cash, authorities said. Two men in dark clothes, one hiding a semiautomatic handgun under his coat, entered Romeo's Fine Jewelry on the mall's first floor about 6:20 p.m. and directed two women clerks into the back of the store, said Los Angeles Police Det. Larry Minton. "They were unable to do anything to prevent the robbery from occurring," Minton said.

Spring always brings a new crop of farmers markets, as operators time openings to capitalize on the seasonal abundance and diversity of produce. Two new venues, in Sherman Oaks and Temple City, offer good selections of vendors under capable managers. They're not as large as longer-established markets, of course, but should flourish and grow if supported by their communities. The Sherman Oaks venue is sponsored by the local chamber of commerce and managed by Carole Gallegos, who, until a month ago, directed the successful Studio City farmers market.

Representatives of the Sherman Oaks Galleria got an earful this week from Sherman Oaks and Encino residents who are opposed to a proposal to turn part of the mall into an entertainment center. At a joint meeting of the Sherman Oaks Homeowners Assn. and Homeowners of Encino, residents blasted Galleria Joint Venture's plans to convert space in the mall and an adjacent building into 17 additional movie theaters, and possibly an IMAX theater and video arcade.

The Sherman Oaks Galleria will seek city approval for a multimillion-dollar renovation plan that would add an open-air plaza and expand dining and entertainment facilities, mall officials said Wednesday. City planning officials must examine architectural designs to approve a zoning change for the project, which officials said is still in the conceptual phase. "We're at such preliminary stages, we don't even have design drawings at this point," said mall General Manager Joy M. DeBacker.

Thousands of people pour into the Sherman Oaks Galleria each day. This tremendous hall of concrete and glass is probably the best-known edifice in the San Fernando Valley. Movies have immortalized the Galleria, a Top-40 song has celebrated its quintessential "Val" qualities. The average Galleria shopper visits five or six times a month, spending at least an hour and $100 on each occasion, according to mall executives. But shopping is not the only attraction here. Something far more powerful is at work.

Despite national notoriety as a home away from home for the mythic Valley Girl, the Sherman Oaks Galleria faces much of the same competition and pressure that has left malls around the country in the doldrums. So it surprises few in the retailing and development industry that the 15-year-old mall that leaped to fame with Frank Zappa's 1982 song "Valley Girl" is undergoing a major renovation intended to make it more attractive, more accessible and, most importantly, more profitable.

NEARLY six years ago, the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood established a coterie of devoted followers willing to pay a premium for reserved stadium seats, state-of-the-art theaters, an absence of commercials and such rules of etiquette as no late seating. Now that ethos has set up shop at the Sherman Oaks Galleria, replacing the Pacific Theaters with a modern temple to cinephilia that had its grand opening last week.

When Los Angeles' Community Redevelopment Agency wanted to manage earthquake rebuilding efforts, the homeowners filed a lawsuit to prevent the move and won. "We resisted government control," said Richard Close, president of the Sherman Oaks Homeowners Assn. (SOHA). Sherman Oaks also played a key role in the drive for Proposition 13, the 1978 property tax limitation initiative, and was the epicenter of the ill-fated San Fernando Valley secession movement in 2002, Close noted.

I was raised on a strict regimen of holiday cheer -- elaborate tree-trimming sessions sweetened with mulled wine, figgy pudding and heavy rotations of Handel's "Messiah." But the mid-20s have proved a rough era for this holiday junkie, and I'll stop at nothing to rekindle those childhood memories. Which is why every year around this time, I make a pilgrimage to the malls of our fine city and throw myself headlong into an ice blended froth of yuletide commerce.
