You know I’m a Rent the Runway addict, often renting designer fashion for special occasions or simply because the company sent me a discount coupon. I even have a few Outfits of the Week that feature something I rented from Rent the Runway. Well, here’s the big news that has me super excited: Rent the Runway is opening a showroom at The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas on December 27, 2013, just in time for New Year’s! Amazing, isn’t it?
“Las Vegas is one of the only places on earth where it’s not only appropriate but pretty much required to wear something outrageous every night of the year,” says Jennifer Hyman, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of Rent the Runway. “Who better to get you into that gold sequined mini-dress than Rent the Runway? The Cosmopolitan serves as the perfect partner with its vibrant and see-and-be-seen atmosphere.”
Rent the Runway already has a showroom in New York City, but this new spot at The Cosmopolitan is the first one for the West Coast. The showroom will offer same-day dress rental, with rental prices ranging from $50 to $450 in sizes 0 to 22.
Customers can shop from a “cocktail menu” of style options, such as The Manhattan, which features floor-length gowns. Another category option is The Lemon Drop, showcasing sweet silhouettes; and then there’s also The Fireball, which includes sequin cocktail dresses. The Rent the Runway shop will also offer group rental and bachelorette party packages for those in town for a destination wedding or just a celebration.
For more information or to book an appointment, go to www.renttherunway.com/showroom, but walk-in appointments are also available. To return an order, customers may drop their items directly at the showroom, or they may be returned via the usual pre-paid mailing envelope provided.
Rent the Runway will be located on the second level of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, 3708 South Las Vegas Blvd. Once it opens, I will definitely check it out, rent a dress, and report back to you. So stay tuned!
