Lush Cosmetics to Triple in Size with New Concept Store at Fashion Show

LUSH COSMETICS TO TRIPLE IN SIZE WITH NEW CONCEPT SHOP AT FASHION SHOW

Lush Cosmetics will soon showcase an all-new location within Fashion Show Las Vegas. Set to open late March, the newly expanded concept shop at Fashion Show will stretch 1,360 square feet – more than three times the average Lush store!

Taking inspiration from Lush’s 10,000 square foot shop on Oxford Street as well as the Borough Market, both located in London, the retail design will give new meaning to vintage charm. The store will be filled with one-of-a-kind, salvaged and reclaimed furniture that have been sourced from all over the country. This unique design concept of working from reclaimed materials reduces waste, ultimately cutting back on Lush’s environmental footprint, a value important to the brand. Plus, the neutral tones of the interior will contrast perfectly with the rainbow bright colors of Lush’s product range, including its signature bath bombs, a Las Vegan favorite.

The focal point of the store will be the Skin Care consultation station in the middle of the shop that will allow for enhanced one-to-one customer experiences. This area will give guests and Lush staff the chance to connect, discuss and interact with products and make personal recommendations based on in-depth conversations.

“We are very excited about our new large format location in Las Vegas,” said Elisa Torres, Lush’s Director of Retail. “Bigger shops, thoughtfully designed with the customer experience in mind, provide more space to demonstrate our ethics, playfully interact with our customers, and present our new and ever growing product range.”

The interactive nature of a Lush store is incredibly unique to the beauty world. As a self-appointed cosmetic grocer, Lush uses the freshest organic fruit, vegetables and essential oils to create the finest and most effective products. While in store, customers are encouraged to choose from fresh cleansing rolls, fragranced bath bomb, bars of solid shampoo, fresh face masks displayed on ice and other innovative product ranges, which are best suited for their needs.

Lush is committed to inspiring customers and prides itself on being a community-focused retailer. Through the sales of its Charity Pot hand and body lotion, of which 100% of the price goes directly to grassroots charities, Lush has been able to donate $17 million to organizations working to make the world a better place for people, animals and the planet.
