are you talking about macarons? they’re the sandwich-like cookie. macaroons are coconut.

there are plenty of bakeries that can ship macarons, but they don’t come cheap. do a google search.

Trader Joe’s has macarons.  I believe they are frozen though.  Since they are “mass produced”/pre-packaged you could give them a try to see if they will last longer than regular macarons outside the freezer though I kind of doubt it, especially for a few weeks (let me know if you try it, I’m curious too!)  

We baked some macarons and they held up pretty well at 5 days in the fridge, but that seems like not long enough for you.

Actually, you might want to consider meringues.  

They are pretty and light, like macarons, but last much longer and do not need to be in a freezer or a fridge.  We make them for Christmas and they last several weeks in a non-airtight tin on the counter.  You can basically make them in any color.  http://www.istockphoto.com/file_closeup/food-and-drink/906371-dish-of-meringue.php?id=906371

They are also really easy to make (and cheaper) than macarons if you’re looking to DIY.
