Entrepreneur Charlotte Hale, whose love for all things, well, plum pretty, inspired her concept, Plum Pretty Sugar. What started as an online boutique in 2009 has blossomed into a brick-and-mortar store at Regency Centers’ Village at La Floresta in Brea, California. The storefront is a lifestyle extension of PlumPrettySugar.com. 

“The merchandising approach we took at La Floresta was to introduce best-in-class local and regional retailers into the Brea market,” said Omar Hussein, Senior Leasing Agent at Regency Centers. “Plum Pretty Sugar has built an extremely successful online business, so its been exciting to debut the brands’ first brick-and-mortar store at our center.”

In February, the retailer celebrated its grand opening. The 2,691 SF space is designed in a soft color palette with metallic accents that complement the delicate, Hamptons-chic merchandise. Plum Pretty Sugar is known for its ultra-feminine collection of apparel along with specialty gifts, accessories, and a cozy home goods section.

"Our new Brea store was designed to be an inspiring showroom focusing on our significant best-sellers alongside unique offerings in our feminine and fresh point of view."
