I recommend Ella-Rue to anyone
Ella Rue!!! My first and only choice to sell my designer clothing!! The girls ( Krista and Alexa) have the absolute best taste and curate the absolute best items! All my Louboutins have a short stop over at Ella Rue- before the girls find them a new home! I send a big box from NYC to DC- they call to let me know it was received and then email a list as well a price offered for sale. The Highest percentage paid, and I have never had a concern - the highest level business integrity, combined w genuine kindness! I recommend Ella-Rue to anyone! - remember, the girls curate for their clients (who are ALL personal friends) so if they don't accept something you want to consign- it's not personal!. EVERYTHING I CONSIGNED (that they liked) SOLD! ......and I got a big fat check!!! Now, go clean out your closet!!!!!
Absolutely love Ella-Rue
The service as well as the quality of clothes are amazing. They are constantly putting out new clothes, and everything looks brand new. I've pretty much stopped shopping anywhere and only shop here!
If you are looking for amazing designer clothes/accessories/shoes at a great price this is THE place to come. Ella Rue has upscale designer clothing from Prada, Gucci, YSL, Valentino, to more casual pieces like Rag and Bone, Alice and Olivia, and so much more. They carry dresses, blouses, skirts, jackets, shoes, scarves, jewelry, and bags. They have something for everyone and have great selections for women of every size. This boutique is beautifully organized and the service is amazing. Krista, Alexa, Janet, and Michael help each customer every step of the way from the moment they walk in the door to when they are making their purchase at the register. The customer experience at Ella Rue cannot be beat! The employees are always smiling and genuinely happy to help anyone who comes in. Additionally, they are very professional in their methods of handling consignment clients (new and old), and will make sure that your clothes get sold! If you are living in or visiting DC this place is definitely a place to visit, you won't be disappointed!
Best consignment boutique in DC
As consignment shops go this is high end - labels range from Halston, Gucci, Theory, Herve, to Chanel. Nothing looks worn and prices, for these labels, you can not beat! They carry suits, jackets, dresses, tops, shoes, jewelry and bags. I've updated my work, girls night out, date night and summer vaca wardrobe here. They have something for anyone looking for those designer labels to make you feel glam.
Sigh. I want to keep this gem a secret but it's too good to keep to myself. And the sisters that own it are awesome. You truly get the boutique, one-on-one attention here and it's always a fun time popping in. Now go tell all your girlfriends...I have!
I love being one of their consignors
Ella-Rue is first a high-end boutique that provides tremendous customer service and personal attention -- and just happens to also be operating with items on consignment! I have been a consignor at a number of DC-area places over the last 20 years, and none of them comes close to my experience with Krista and Alexa at Ella-Rue. They research their pricing carefully, being fair to consignor, store and customer. They take only what they know they can sell -- and they know their customer base. My most recent experience: I brought them 20 items in April; they chose the 10 they wanted for the store -- this selectivity is a good thing; you don't want your items sitting for months on crowded racks or in a store that takes everything and underprices it. Ella-Rue knows what they're doing! In May, I received a check in the mail, noting that 5 of my items had already sold! I went in again today, and the remaining items I have there look brand new on the well-organized racks in the beautiful store. I have no doubt they, too, will sell -- as will the new items I dropped off today. The team at Ella-Rue knows fashion, knows their clientele -- and they are as warm and inviting as they are knowledgeable.
As mentioned in all of the other reviews, the service here is unbeatable. There is a friendly, almost girls-night-out atmosphere. I first thought that everyone shopping was a regular, but quickly learned that it pretty much always feels like that at Ella-Rue! Really stylish and new-er selection of products here. Highly recommended to my fellow yelpers!
Krista was fantastic and honest
I am a co-chair of a black tie Gala and wanted something special yet classic. After searching all the areas department stores (and online) and making a weekend shopping trip to NYC, I couldn't find "the dress". I stopped by Ella Rue one afternoon and asked if they carried formal gowns; they said to check back in October and make an appointment so they could pull my size beforehand (they don't keep all of their formal gowns on the floor). Still gown-less in October, I made my appointment (they were very accommodating). Krista was fantastic - and honest - when I tried on about 8 gowns in my size (pretty good selection!). It was a successful trip! Krista even suggested accessories to complete the look (but didn't pressure me to buy the ones in the shop). I was prepared to spend $1000+ on a gown, but found the perfect one at Ella Rue for $250. Another perk of Ella Rue is that if you need anything altered, they have a great relationship with New York a Cleaners next door - they were fantastic too! BTW - the Gala was last night and I received more compliments than I ever have at one of these events. Definitely recommend.
