Big news. Twin Cities-based plus-size fashion brand B&Lu is opening a boutique in Hopkins. The store will feature B&Lu’s affordable, trendy apparel, sizes 12 and up. From dresses to denim, no piece is more than $70. Plus: the store will extend B&Lu’s brand into accessories – jewelry, scarves, shoes – and home furnishings. Owner Christine Sholl is bringing in inexpensive, re-purposed pieces, which she describes as “classic vintage farmhouse meets Parisian market whimsy.” Sholl plans to add regular size women’s clothes in the near future as well.
B&Lu will be open the first Thursday through Sunday of every month (and during select festivals and fairs) – starting today, July 7. The store is also available for private shopping parties. 1007 Main Street, Hopkins
