It's not a full-blown flagship store, but still, D.C.'s getting a little slice of Topshop today. At 10 a.m., a Topshop boutique will open within the Nordstrom at the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City. The British retailer is invading Nordstrom department stores across the country, with displays in over 25 stores, but Nordstrom Pentagon City is the only place in the Washington area you'll find Topshop.
The Arlington department store threw a little party yesterday for top customers and bloggers to preview the store within a store, and they snapped plenty of photos, a few of which you'll find after the jump. But the big party is coming later, when blogger A Lacey Perspective hosts a launch event on October 19 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Note: there will be a swag bag for the first 100 attendees at the event. That might get competitive.
