Exclusive: Area’s First Lou & Grey Boutique to Open in Tysons Corner Center

Loft’s sister brand will bring all the cozy knits to Northern Virginia.

If you’re familiar with Lou & Grey, your exposure likely began in a Loft store, which has hosted the “free spirited” sister line since it launched in 2014. Loungewear styles and soft knits (anything called a “Cozyup Sweater Coat” gets two thumbs up in our book) are staples of the dressed-down Ann Inc. brand.

The first Lou & Grey stand-alone opened in Massachusetts in 2014, and since then the brand has only opened a handful of other boutiques, primarily marketing the products from within Loft stores. The new boutique opening at Tysons Corner Center on November 21 will be just the tenth Lou & Grey stand alone in the country.

Besides their complete collection of livable clothing (we plan on spending the duration of winter in this cashmere hoodie), Lou & Grey boutiques also curate products from outside artisans. The store also plans to collaborate with local retailers, hosting products from Virginia-based Beth Sperlazza Pottery and Casey Seawell Freeman Ceramics.

No longer will local shoppers have to hunt through Loft for the limited collection of Lou & Grey products–starting in November, they can get all the cozy goodness first-hand at Lou & Grey at 1961 Chain Bridge Road, Space #H3AU in McLean.
