“WE LOVE FASHION. WE BELIEVE IN ITS TRANSFORMATIVE POWER.” _ Eloquii
Do you know how hard it was for me to keep this secret? I got a call this past summer from the Eloquii team and they told me that they were opening a pop up location in Chicago. I could hardly deal after joking about the coming to Chicago. There’s a different feeling you get when you’re able to try on clothes in-store. I spoke about that in the post ELOQUII KEEPING IT’S BRICK AND MORTAR STORE IS A PLUS SIZE VICTORY. With the fast pace life many of live online shopping it’s the way for us to go. Sometime I need to know this dress will fit because I don’t have another 7 days to wait for another size to come if the dress is still in stock. Chicago is the 3rd largest market so Eloquii opening here is a no brainier but how they are doing it took a lot of thought.
I attended the ELOQUII’S VIP BREAKFAST AND CHICAGO STORE SNEAK PEEK so I was able to see the store before it was open to the public. The store looked like my room when I’m getting ready for a night out. Clothes and shoes were everywhere. So my return when the store was done done was an amazing sight.
You can find the Eloquii Chicago store on the Mag Mile at 520 North Michigan Ave. The store is nestled on the second floor just outside of Nordstrom in the Northbridge. The store is everything a plus girl needs in a lush shopping experience.
Eloquii Chicago speaks to Eloquii’s customer base. It’s like they took their website and created a way for you to walk in and try on the clothes. The whole staff will be your instant bffs. They guided me though the store that was beautifully designed. They have my size mannequiens! I love knowing how the clothes will lay because they’re hang on body shapes like mine. You can book a styling appointment with the staff you’ll be placed lounge with the attached dressing room. Chicago ladies push away from your computers and see the gorgeous store in-person. Bold prints, spacious seating and of course the latest in Eloquii’s clothes. Eloquii is doing a soft launch Thursday August 17th. The store’s grand opening will be September 6th.
The Chicago store will be open for one year for now. I encourage you and your girls to stop by and support this store. That’s the only way brands will see that we want the in-store experience. Tag me when you take your in-store selfies because it’s truly Instagramable!
