New clothing stores, Starbucks coming to Lakeline Mall

This summer three new stores and one new coffee shop will open at Lakeline Mall in Cedar Park.

Mall manager and owner Simon Property Group announced March 24 that three new women's clothing stores will open in the mall’s lower level. In June, a Starbucks will open in the mall’s food court on the upper level.

Lakeline Mall, which opened in 1995, has more than 150 stores and is located at 11200 Lakeline Mall Drive, Cedar Park.

Monica Esparza, director of marketing and business development with Simon, said the new stores include these clothing retailers:

  • Chico’s, which will open in May, offers branded women’s clothing. The retailer will open a
    3,070-square-foot location next to Abercrombie & Fitch.

  • White House | Black Market, which will also open in May, offers black, white and other colored items for women. The store will include 3,736 square feet and will be located near Brookstone.

  • Blu Spero, which will open in August, offers a variety of women’s clothing. Lakeline Mall will be the store’s first Texas location, which will open with 2,397 square feet between Brookstone and Crazy 8.

“As we celebrate more than 20 years in the market, we are thrilled to have so many exciting announcements to share,” Esparza said in a news release. “As the real estate market changes, so does Lakeline Mall with new dining experiences, upgraded amenities and improved merchandise mix.”

Editor's note: This story has been amended to describe Starbucks as a coffee shop, not a restaurant.
