After staying vacant for about 18 months, the Carmel City Center has a new tenant for the space formerly occupied by Mangia! Italian Restaurant.
A women’s clothing boutique, beauty+grace, is now open, offering, “chic, confident and comfortable fashion pieces that can work to all aspects of your multidimensional day.”
beauty+grace carries 20 different designers, ten of which have not been sold in Indiana.
“I wanted to offer women a unique shopping experience where they will find beautiful and fashionable pieces that can be worn throughout their busy daily schedules. At beauty+grace you will find everything from sweaters, blouses, jeans, skirts, parkas, fabulous shoes and statement jewelry that can be worn to a yoga session, business meeting, lunch with friends, volunteering at your child’s school or date night with your husband,” Owner Jenni Meyers said about her first fashion boutique.
Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The store is closed on Sundays. Several sales and promotions will be going on as beauty+grace opens to the public.
The previous occupants, Mangia!, wrote a letter to the media in 2014, saying that a lack of parking was a major reason their restaurant closed. Pedcor, which owns the Carmel City Center, disagreed with that letter at the time.
