Michael Kors and Vera Bradley stores will be coming to the Mall of Louisiana, along with a Tucanos Brazilian Grill that will be constructed on an undeveloped retail pad at the Bluebonnet Boulevard mall.
All three should be opened this spring, said Tod Denton, the mall’s general manager.
The two retailers will take locations inside the mall, he said.
The restaurant will go up on the pad between electronics retailer h.h. gregg and Bar Louis, which was formerly Bravo’s.
Michael Kors, the womenswear designer and “Project Runway” judge, already has two Louisiana stores — in Canal Place in New Orleans and Lakeside Mall in Metairie.
Vera Bradley specializes in selling handbags, luggage and accessories.
Bradley’s bags are already sold at stores such as Dillard’s and Pearson’s Luggage and Gifts, but this will be the first all-Vera Bradley store in the state.
Tucanos Brazilian Grill is based in Colorado. It is opening its eighth location in May in Sugar Land, Texas.
