I am currently running orchard within another application. I am wondering if it is possible to render partials from the parent app ie. header, footer, etc.?

Entirely depends on things that you're not saying about that app. Please provide more details, in particular about how you integrated that other application.

Well both are setup as virtual directories, and the parent app is our custom ecommerce app. Not sure what other details would be helpful.

Separate virtual directories? Then in what sense is it a "parent" application? Are they running in the same app domain?

Ok, guess I have my terminology wrong. Below is how I have it setup in IIS

I don't think this can work, no. Best you can do is probably to query a custom controller from one app to the other and apply proper caching.
