Wow. To find out a favorite boutique is expanding rather than closing is making our day. We’re thrilled for Fleur de Lys owners Josephine Pfeiffer and Shannon Ritter as they celebrate their expanded home and gift store Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. A portion of the day’s sales will go to Human Options that provides battered women and their families with safety.
Next door neighbor, Plums Café is also partnering in the fundraising effort by donating 10 percent of its dinner sales from the evening to Human Options. What’s new at Fleur De Lys? A win-win kitchen and bath showroom by Studio Zing Designs that’s a fresh take in OC for a kitchen showroom, and a place for Fleur de Lys to showcase gourmet and culinary items, as well as table top lines.
There’s also a gourmet tasting bar, original work by local artisans, and more than 2,500 square feet of home decor, candles, apothecary, jewelry, stationery. And a full-service bridal registry suite.
The all-day event will feature a tasting station hosted by Plums Café & Catering, door prizes, free gifts, and appearances by metal artist Cindy Linn, Christa Hozie, creator of the Brown Butter Sea Salt Cookie, chocolate artisan Diana Phillips, and jewelry artisans Grant and Mindy Searcey. (Champagne reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.)
Open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday; 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Fleur De Lys is at 369 East 17th St. in Costa Mesa. 949.548.0810www.fleurdelysus.com
