Boutique shop opens in new location at Palazzo

Updated August 30, 2019 - 5:08 pm

Visitors can expect to see a bit more flair when walking inside Rene’ Tyler Plus Sizes 12 and Above boutique.

The plus-size clothing and accessories store reopened Monday after moving a couple of doors east inside the Shoppes at Palazzo.

Founder and CEO Angela Rene’ said the move gave her an opportunity to match the store’s interior to the company’s black-and-white logo.

“Our logo fits the store,” she said. “It’s cleaner, more modern but still classy and elegant. The store is painted black and white, but it still has our flair.”

The 1,500-square-foot store, about 300 square feet smaller than its previous location, carries the shop’s namesake line and other plus-size brands. Shoppers also can find jewelry, handbags, hats and shoes.

Rene’ Tyler initially launched online before adding a brick-and-mortar store in 2018, making it the first plus-size store to open on the Strip, according to the company.

The designer, whose designs have been worn by “Orange is the New Black” star Laverne Cox and “The Daily Show” correspondent Dulcé Sloan, said she wanted to give customers a chance to “see and feel” her clothing.

“We were just growing and we had private clients and an online store, but I just wanted to have a small boutique where people could come and try the clothes,” she said.

She added that her focus has shifted to the physical store, noting that it offers a larger selection of merchandise than online, but she has plans to bolster her online shop in the coming months.

“Our fall fashion campaign went live (online) yesterday and we’ve had a few sales, but we’re trying to up that and make it better,” she said Tuesday.
