There is a Levi's store in Georgetown, which is only a few minutes bus ride from downtown D.C.
I work for a European company and we are always hosting visitors from various countries. Our French colleagues go straight for two things; Levi's and peanut butter (apparently American-style peanut butter is hard to find in Paris). The guests from Munich and Hamburg have focused on shoes like Converse.
But anyway - Tysons 1/2 might be better choices since there are wide varieties of American stores to choose from. Levi's store is a good idea too.
