Never one to rest on its retail laurels, Town Center at Boca Raton once again has distinguished itself in the South Florida market-this time, by giving shoppers a taste of South America.

Santa Lolla, the much-ballyhooed footwear and accessories brand from Brazil, has opened its first stand-alone store in the United States at Town Center. A grand opening celebration last Friday introduced local fashionistas to Santa Lolla's ultra-chic collection of boots, flats, platforms, wedges, wallets, purses, belts and much more.

"We see Florida as an important part of our future expansion strategy," says marketing director Marcela Bussamra. "We're very excited about the opening of our first U.S.-based boutique."

Area style mavens will be equally excited at the seemingly endless of array of selections offered by Santa Lolla, which debuts four collections (and some 600 different products) each year. This season's collection includes bejeweled flats, sky-high heels and a full line of coordinating bags, clutches and accessories in neutral shades. The boutique at Town Center marks Santa Lolla's 105th worldwide location.
