Young girls’ fashion brand is opening a store in the Mosaic District

A fledgling company almost as young as the toddlers and other kids it seeks to outfit is opening a store in Merrifield this month.

LooLous is opening at the Mosaic District next to the clothing store South Moon Under. The company’s owner, Savin Ghaderi, told Tysons Reporter that it will officially open next Monday (Feb. 7).

The business formed last October but kicked off social media campaigns on Instagram and Facebook in 2020. Its website features clothing and items for purchase, with shipping taking one to two business days in the D.C. region.

“Growing up in the area, and operating as a small business, we wanted to do our part to contribute to our local economy, while providing a seamless shopping experience for every consumer — in particular busy moms who are looking for unique, fun pieces for their little ones,” Ghaderi said in an email.

The brand features cardigans and jackets, accessories such as Paris berets and dresses for kids as young as babies.

This will be its first brick-and-mortar store.

“Mosaic District was the ideal location for us as it allows us to provide our consumers with a boutique shopping experience that is exclusive yet also accessible,” Ghaderi also wrote.

The store is where the jewelry shop Alex and Ani was located before it closed the District Avenue location in 2020.

LooLous will have a grand opening event on Feb. 12 that will include refreshments, light snacks and raffles for all.
