Shoppers have until the end of the week to check out the latest fashion pop-up at Tysons Corner Center before it closes.
Until Sunday (Jan. 26), people can stop at Rent the Runway on level two of the mall and browse the selection of women’s fashion or try on clothes from a variety of designers.
Rent the Runway is known for its clothing rental subscription service but a store spokesperson said that the company set up this pop-up so people can become familiar with the quality of high-end brands that are offered and purchase pieces.
The store offers women’s clothing and apparel including gowns, jackets, shirts, pants, skirts, jewelry and handbags. Rent the Runway is offering steep discounts for shoppers on every item in the store.
“A lot of the gowns usually retail for over $1,000,” Remi Perryman, a store associate said.
Tysons Reporter found a Badgley Mischka golden sequined floor-length ballgown for $111 with an original retail price of $650 as well as a brightly colored pink and maroon Atlein mini-dress for $224 that originally sold for $1,610.
When setting up the pop-up, Perryman told Tysons Reporter that associates unpacked about 300 boxes worth of items.
Around 700 people RSVP’d for the opening event, according to Perryman, who added that the store sees a large age range of customers from people in their 20s all the way into their 60s.
“We cater to a lot of people,” she said.
The store carries sizes from XS (or zero) to XL (12-14).
Rent the Runway has a permanent store in Georgetown (3336 M Street NW), and a few associates who work at that store said they’ve seen a lot of familiar faces visit the Tysons Corner Center location.
Bella Loose is a long-time Rent the Runway customer who said she visits the Georgetown location frequently and decided to make her way to the pop-up on Friday afternoon.
“I heard about it and wanted to come to see if I could get some deals,” Loose said, holding multiple dresses as she wandered around the store.
Though she said she wasn’t seeking anything specific at the time, she found some unique items that she hadn’t seen from Rent the Runway before.
Anyone hoping to visit the location for the final week can go from 10 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. today-Saturday and from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Sunday.
