LULU boutique and gallery just opened in Costa Mesa, and we think you should know about it (especially now that they’re offering Greer’s OC readers a 30% discount through Sunday, just mention Greer’s OC). A trio of owners (two sisters and a sister-in-law) have transformed the former cottage/store into a charming boutique, a place to find a mix of inexpensive and upscale priced apparel and garden accessories.
Choose from fresh and cute dresses, tee’s, light cashmere sweaters, denim and one-of-a kind vintage jewelry and handbags. And LULU carries great lines: 7 For All Mankind, Kenzie, Free People, 3 dot, CP Shades, Elizabeth & James jewelry. The backyard features vintage furniture, iron work, potted succulents, and a warehouse room for apparel at next to nothing prices.
Open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. 1724 Tustin Ave. in Costa Mesa. 949.650.5858

Stop by Saturday for its ribbon cutting ceremony, health and food faire. Open 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. 1890 Newport Blvd. in Costa Mesa. 949.631.4741.
