Store Spotlight - Newport Beach ✨

May 17, 2019

Newport Beach, CA a.k.a. Balboa Island is our Next Store Spotlight! 

Who doesn't love a cute island town? We sure do! This week we caught up with Ann Connelly, our Regional Manager on the West Coast (who has helped open eight, yes EIGHT, stores in her first year with Charleston Shoe Co.) to chat about Newport Beach! 

Our Newport location - 301 Marine Avenue - is described best by Ann saying, "Everyone that lives there is so lovely and everyone who visits is so nice! I'm sorry, but this is the happiest place on Earth!"

Ann's Favorite Shoe?

"Right now in my suitcase I have approximately four pairs of the Cannon because I feel very passionate about wearing two different shoes and showing up in two different shoes. BUT I will say I am a die hard Benjamin fan! Whenever I'm not working I'm always doing a photoshoot with my feet wherever I am!" 

Yes, those are Ann's feet! 


Best Selling Shoe in Newport Beach?

"The Marina is definitely a Balboa Island shoe! It's always a top seller along with the classic Cannons, MEDs, and Atlantics." 

Best Things To Do Around Town?  

"Balboa Island is known for its frozen chocolate covered bananas! So you will see all of theses people walking around eating these famous bananas." 

So the next time you are in town, come shop with us then grab a chocolate covered banana as an afternoon snack! Sounds like the perfect vacation to us.
