idiot needs help with new outlet

I am installing a new electrical outlet in a foyer by the front door. I have found a older outlet under the stairs in the foyer. Can I just pigtail into the old outlet to power the new outlet? The new outlet will probably only power a small lamp when done. Any help will be appreciated.

This is done all the time. Work safe. Turn off breaker to old outlet until all new connections are made and buttoned up.
