I do, I do!
The market for boutique shopping is getting bigger and bigger every day. Boutique shopping feels more personal, more inviting, and more exciting. The decor is more appealing and for some reasons, these types of stores just make you feel good.
Well, have I got a new boutique store for you. Seriously, the MOTHER of all boutique stores if you ask me.
A few days ago I had an awesome opportunity to go to the VIP party for the launch of the new women’s boutique fitness store called Chelsea Collective. Chelsea Collective is owned by Dick Sporting Goods, and just launched it’s very first store front here in Northern Virginia.
“Named for the diverse and eclectic Chelsea neighborhood of New York City, Chelsea Collective will provide customers with a uniquely curated assortment of apparel, equipment, footwear, accessories and beauty products, fusing fitness and fashion to serve women who are on the cutting edge of new trends and have a variety of fitness interests.”
The focus in on sportswear with lifestyle pieces as well as shoes, accessories and beauty brands. Seriously, everything you could really want in one store. Brands include, Nike, Calia by Carrie Underwood, Lorna Jane, Adidas, Hunter, Ugg, Spiritual Gangster and so many more. The list truly goes on and on.
The store was set up beautifully. As you walk in you see along the right side you will find all of your Nike products. If you are a fan of Nike Active wear then this is the place for you.
As you make your way to the back you come to the shoe, accessories and beauty brands.
In the section with all of the accessories, they also have fun little things that could be used for gifts. So many cool things, I seriously could have spent so much money.
Also in the back of the store are the dressing rooms. They are expansive and just amazing. I MAY have had a little fun in the dressing room trying a few pieces on…BTW, totally OBSESSED with the new Calia by Carrie Underwood line. It’s totally amazeballs.
This is where they also have a treadmill where you can try on shoes, and also take a new outfit for a spin to make sure it stays up in all of the right places (GENIUS, that you can use it for clothing and not just shoes.) The dressing area is called “Refresh” and it is just that….a place to get refreshed.
There is also an electronics charging station. How cool is that?? Let’s face it we could all use that! Chelsea Collective also offers FREE personalized gait analysis, bra fittings andf basic alterations.
On the other side of the store after you get to the shoes (which features everything from sandals, to boots, to running shoes to trainers), you come to the section with Lorna Jane, Spiritual Gangter and Under Armour. I was so excited to see Lorna Jane because it isn’t offered in stores anywhere on the east coast that I’m aware of and I’ve been hesitant to buy online…Score! They also feature her Move Nourish Believe Books and inspirational gear.
You then come to an enormous section of sports bras with brands such as Moving Comfort, Nike and more. And don’t forget they offer custom bra fittings!
And a section of underwear!
And then back to the front of the store you find Calia by Carrie Underwood.
I seriously am in love with this new store. Everything about it is amazing….the layout, the vibe, the decor and just the uniqueness makes it extra special. And a cool bonus? We got to “Build-a-bag” at the end of the night…The top and pants were purchased by me, but the Nike Yoga Mat, Nike bag, Calia yoga towel, yoga block and Nike scarf were all gifted from Chelsea Collective. What a cool surprise!
So if you are in the Northern Virginia area, their grand opening is this weekend August 8-9 at the Tysons Galleria where they will have In-store styling demos, expert advice, complimentary services and refreshments and the first 25 guests get a free gift!!
