Camellia Boutique

Perfect Loveliness

Posted August 24, 2018

From casual wear to cocktail attire, Camellia Boutique in Solana Beach (with a second shop in Dana Point) has long been the go-to stop for stylish women. “I would say that Camellia is everybody’s look,” says owner Deborah Cornell, whose customers range in age from 20 to 50 years old. “I try to have something for every woman who walks in the store.” She opened the boutique more than a dozen years ago, naming it after her Camellia jewelry line, inspired by her mother’s love of flowers. Camellia, notes Cornell, means “perfect loveliness.”

This season the boutique is filled with feminine floral prints, polka dots, and stripes in flowy frocks, rompers, and jumpsuits. It also offers denim, sandals, and more. Camellia carries 100 different designers in all, including top-selling Bella Dahl for casual wear and Lavender Brown for dresses. Especially known for a large selection of dresses that rival department stores, Cornell sells hundreds alone in the weeks leading up to Opening Day at Del Mar. 858.481.8616   Andrea Naversen
