* RascallyRaccoon: Rarity finds some raccoons in a back room and asks Fluttershy to find a way to deal with them. They end up helping Rarity's shop in the end of the episode.


* AnthropomorphicShift: The racoons start out as pure animals, but end up becoming staff in the store, complete with wearing clothing and walking on their hind legs like humans.

Testing shop assistants on different kinds of fabric sounds like a good idea... except that Rainbow Dash has ''no idea'' whether their answers are right or not.
** Fluttershy is once again reminded that being a FriendToAllLivingThings does ''not'' mean animals are going to instantly listen to or agree with you, especially if they don't like what you have to say. Once she tells the raccoons that they have to leave the shop they've made their home, they immediately attack her.

Added DiffLines:

* FramingDevice: As stated, the episode is told as Twilight, Rainbow, Pinkie, Fluttershy, and Applejack giving interviews to a local reporter on the opening of "Rarity for You". In a bit of a twist, this itself is framed as a flashback when Rarity receives the article and is about to read it.


** The episode's alternate title, "Saddle Row & Rec", and the formatting of the episode refer to ''Series/ParksAndRecreation''. This might be the reason it was changed as it was a little too on the nose.
*** The fact that the animals that have taken up residence as a shop are raccoons could be a nod to Pawnee's frequent issues with raccoons, and Pinkie sweeping the floor by rotating her tail during the "sweep" scene seems similar to Tom's DJ Roomba.

As the opening approaches, Rarity is finally let out into the shop, to find that Pinkie hired DJ Pon-3 to host music in the store, Rainbow Dash has hired three new assistants, Fluttershy has convinced the raccoons to clean up and serve snacks, Applejack has found a practical use for Plaid Stripes' spoon clothes idea, and Twilight has neatly organized everything in an easy-to-find way. The review ultimately gives "Rarity for You" a positive rating, despite calling the Mane Six "a ragtag group of ne'er-do-wells" who were a bit chaotic in their execution.

* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: Plaid Stripes' idea for spoon-themed clothes turns out to actually appeal to the customers (well, at least one of them that we see, in addition to Applejack).

* GoodAngelBadAngel: Pinkie Pie gets a angel/devil pair that look like Rarity when deciding what to do about the rave above Rarity's store. Humorously, the "good" Rarity agrees with "bad" Rarity that they should keep the rave in full swing. However, when Pinkie goes to do so, the "bad" Rarity drags her back with the pitch fork and says she would never say such "balderdash," vanishing. She looks to the "good" one, who [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere shrugs and poofs away sheepishly]]. Amusingly, both the "good" Rarity and the "bad" Rarity are wearing obviously fake angel and devil costumes.
* GroupHug: Rarity initiates one after reading the overwhelmingly positive review.
