Apricot Lane opening second store in south Charlotte

Apricot Lane is opening a second Charlotte-area boutique, this one in the StoneCrest at Piper Glen shopping center.

The store will open in mid-May, according to Apricot Lane. An exact date hasn't been set. The company's boutiques are franchised, and local franchisee company Alpha Astra said it plans to add a third Apricot Lane in Charlotte at a soon-to-be-determined location.

The company already has a location in Huntersville's Birkdale Village, as well as three locations in the Raleigh area. "Our talented team and prime retail spaces in StoneCrest, Birkdale and the Raleigh area are key to our rapid rate of growth and our continued aggressive expansion plans," said George Toulas, Alpha Astra's co-owner, in an email.

If you haven't been to Apricot Lane yet, here is their description: "All of Apricot Lane’s Charlotte and Triangle boutiques focus on top-of-the-line styles straight from the L.A. fashion district. The fun, fearless fashion at affordable prices include new women’s clothes, handbags, jewelry, other accessories and gifts arriving daily."
