Hoping to open in April.
The circle of retail life continues. Pink closed it’s doors last month, Champagne & Shoes is ending its two year run this month and a new shop is stepping onto Cary Street to give it a go. Richmond BizSense.com has the details of Lou Lou moving into Carytown.
Women’s fashion store Lou Lou plans to open in April inside the 1,800 square feet at 3158 W. Cary St. The Cary Court storefront had previously been occupied by Pink before the longstanding retailer closed in January.
The Carytown location will be Lou Lou’s first in Richmond and 17th store overall.
The chain was launched in Middleburg, Va., by Tara and Ben Wegdam in 2004. Today, the husband-and-wife team has stores in Charlottesville, Northern Virginia, Washington, D.C., Maryland and Massachusetts.
“We’ve had a lot of customers saying Richmond would be a great place to open a store,” company’s spokesperson Paige Healey said. “We attract a lot of those young professional girls looking for accessories to wear.”
The company, named after a Parisian bartender the Wegdams once knew, sells its own brand of women’s jewelry, scarves and handbags. And it sells other designer brands.
Healey said jewelry pieces, a top seller at Lou Lou, range in price between $10 and $50.
