SPL Realty Partners, exclusively representing Australia’s award-winning women’s active wear retailer Lorna Jane, today announced 11 leases have been secured for Lorna Jane’s expansion into the United States.
The prominent retail sites are located throughout the Southern California region including stores in Santa Monica, Woodland Hills, Glendale, Irvine and Huntington Beach. A warehouse was also secured for the support of the network of retail stores and online fulfillment in Santa Monica, Calif.
Founder and Chief Creative Officer Lorna Jane Clarkson said she and her husband, Bill Clarkson, CEO of Lorna Jane, are proud to be represented throughout California and the United States by retail leasing expert Scott Lifschultz, founder and president of SPL Realty Partners.
“At Lorna Jane, we operate at an exceptionally fast pace, so it was critical for Bill and I to identify a real estate company that would not only support us in our new venture, but take our expansion plans to the next level,” Lorna Jane Clarkson said.
“As we are based in Australia, the consistent dedication, diligence and focus of Scott Lifschultz ensures Bill and I can comfortably make business decisions from the other side of the world.

Scott Lifschultz of SPL Realty Partners commented, “Lorna Jane is taking California by storm. There will be 11 or 12 stores open by the end of this year with another 20 new stores slated for 2013.”
Lifschultz continued, “This is not about just opening stores; there is a much greater picture here. It’s about building a brand, awareness, and giving the customer a choice. Bill and Lorna have such a passion for life and their business and a clear vision to becoming the best women’s active-wear brand in the world. It’s truly an honor to be an integral part of their growth here in the U.S.”
