New from Fran D'Ambrosio, a former buyer for Boyds' contemporary department, Ella's Grove is now open on Lancaster Avenue in Bryn Mawr. The 1,200-square-foot women's boutique officially debuted on September 9 with a lineup of labels that includes M Missoni, Robert Rodriquez, Illia, Frye, Clover Canyon, Tracy Reese, Miguel Ases, and—D'Ambrosio's favorite—scarves by Leigh and Luca.
Also on the menu here: some good ol' fashioned Southern hospitality, courtesy of D'Ambrosio's South Carolina upbringing. As for the shop's target customer, D'Ambrosio says she's "someone from her thirties to seventies who's young at heart and loves beautiful fabrics and fashion—an upscale contemporary lady!"
