Yes girl. You read this right! Eloquii is going to be opening a concept store! I mean the last time that we heard of them ever doing in store things was in their former life, when The Limited secretly brought in the Eloquii plus range into a few doors! But this? Ohhh this is not that. One of the leading plus size brands, Eloquii, is testing out a concept store and I am soooo curious and hyped! Girl, soon, we will be able to shop Eloquii in store!
According to WWD, Eloquii will open a “concept shop” located in the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City in Arlington, Va in March! Now, do not get too hyped, this is a temporary, three-month test to learn what the future potential for an Eloquii store may look like! If you are in the area, the 2,600 sq ft store will be on level two of the Macy’s wing of the shopping center!
START THE CAR!!!!!!!!!!
“Our customers have been asking us for a physical location since we relaunched Eloquii nearly three years ago… We’re excited to test what our business’ offline experience will mean to our customers at Fashion Centre at Pentagon City. D.C. is one of our best markets and we hope to become a worthy component of our D.C. customers’ offline lives, understand their omnichannel behavior as well as generate many new long-term Eloquii community members.” CEO, Mariah Chase
Girl. Take my money.
I mean, this is a great natural and very much needed progression. After killing it with $20 million in sales last year, Eloquii has definitely hit their stride and I see that they are only beginning! I mean, if Amazon, Google, and Rent the Runway can do it, why NOT Eloquii?
Ohhh and I can only begin to imagine what it would look like. I am seeing an experience, swanky, luxe, and a boutique feel and vibe. Or I hope… kind of like City Chic’s west coast stores! Yes?
Okay. Okay. Sooooooo where could we see more of these concept stores or real locations? Of course, I am going to say Atlanta, but LA for sure… NY, Chicago, Texas, and Detroit? Ohhh this will be curious to watch and see how this unfolds!
You better believe I am going to make a trip up to the DMV area for this!
Because outside of Lane Bryant, Ashley Stewart, Fashion to Figure, Torrid, Lovesick, and City Chic, Eloquii would be a great plus size only brand to get in on providing plus size women an in-store shopping experience, right?! And even though I listed these brands, I have yet been to a mall that has them all in one! How about that? There have been mixes, but not all in one place!
Okay, so you know I got you right? As news unfolds and comes out, I will do my best to keep you in the loop!
How friggin exciting is this?! Another fashion place to call home, in a mall! Ohhh and if you are in the area and want to work for them? View all job openings here! and the are having a hiring event! Here are the deets:
