As seen in their Downtown, Malibu and Sherman Oaks Surplus stores, it's clear Urban Outfitters isn't afraid to think outside of the box. Earlier this spring, we revealed the hip retailer's grand renovation plans for their relocated Westwood Village location: A massive his-and-hers concept shop that would be UO's third-largest space in Cali. Though their Men's Store was unveiled as scheduled last month, the cool megachain's bohemian-cool Women's Store finally opened this past Saturday.

Landing at 11,281 square feet, the two-story women's shop (which includes a swing upstairs!) carries the retailer's usual offerings of apparel, denim, accessories, jewelry and footwear alongside organic beauty products, retro home goods, decor and mid-century pottery. Next door in the 5,275-square-foot men's store, expect to find clothing, shoes and accessories, plus a music shop-in-shop filled with vintage vinyl, a curated selection of Fender and Gibson electric and acoustic guitars, and in-store snack bar/to-go window stocked with Coolhaus ice cream, cold-pressed juices and pre-packaged healthy bites. Like their cool Rialto Theatre and Malibu Country Mart digs, UO Westwood Village also offers handmade merch from local designers and artists.

Ready to toast UO's new UCLA-friendly shop? Staff tells us a grand opening bash is scheduled for Friday, October 3. In addition to a live performance by Brit indie band Wild Rivers, the soiree will feature pop-ups from luxe leather bag makers (and GQ men's market vendors) Clarke & Madison and Topanga Canyon-based Stoned Immaculate Vintage. Stay tuned for more info.

Urban Outfitters Westwood is open Monday through Thursday from 10am to 9pm, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 10pm, and Sunday from 11am to 9pm.
