Miu Miu fans, rejoice. For two weeks only, the 57th Street boutique is launching a clublike lounge where clients (including those attending the hectic Met Ball and Frieze Art Fair), die-hard Miu Miu admirers, and the general public can relax in style. Spanning the store’s entire third floor, the lounge will offer refreshments as well as a comfortably luxe citron-green velvet screening room to view the brand’s “Miu Miu Tales” series, now totaling 11 films all directed by women.

A brand retrospective of sorts, the pop-up will also showcase clothing and accessories from the “Tales” and the past 11 runway collections — all of it, somewhat amazingly, on sale. This is huge news for collectors looking to get their hands on pieces that got away, such as a showgirl-worthy sparkling beaded dress from the spring 2014 collection, a minidress made from mirrored appliqués from the fall 2012 collection, or the blue-suede-and-silver spectator booties from fall 2013.

Prices will be marked as they were when originally sold. Many items will be available in a range of sizes, but expect everything to go quickly.

From April 28 through May 8, at 11 E. 57th St.; 212-641-2980.
