For that trendy teenage girl in your life, this is a shop to buy the latest fashions at bargain prices.. In Short This chain started humbly in 1962 as a bikini shop named Lorne's in Newport Beach, Calif. By focusing on the tastes of young, trend-conscious female consumers, the small shop evolved into a large corporation. Each store stocks so many inexpensive clothes that one could spend hours sifting through the racks. Shirts come in every style from long-sleeved blouses to tiny tees. It also carries trendy pants, denim, sweaters and skirts plus purses, shoes and accessories.
