Molly Brown's, the beloved Newport Beach-based swim shop that has garnered quite the celebrity stylist following, has laid down some roots in Laguna.
Donna Allen, who owns Molly Brown's along with her husband Greg, last month opened the boutique at 490 S. Coast Hwy.
"I live here in Laguna Beach," Donna said. "I've been trying for several years to move into town. When the space became available, I thought it would be a great opportunity. I've gotten great feedback on this store from people from southern Orange County who [now] don't have to drive to [the Newport Beach store]."
The shop carries several California brands, as well as international and designer labels. It also has a small men's section. Women's swimsuits run around a $150 and up.
"We like to support locals," Donna said about carrying swimwear labels based in California. "It's easy to get the product because a lot of it is made here and we don't have to wait on shipments."
