Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen are setting up shop on Madison Avenue

 

They’re the new Madison Ave. mavens.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen could take possession of the new New York flagship of their clothing brand The Row as early as May, sources told the Daily News.

The flagship, at 17 E. 71st St., is just steps from the prime Madison Ave. shopping corridor and upscale retailers such as Barneys New York, Hermes, Ralph Lauren and Prada.

The twin fashionistas plan to customize the space and open the store by the end of the year. It will be the brand’s second bricks and mortar location following the opening of a Los Angeles store last year.

“This is only their second store although they’re talking about others,” said Chris Conlon, COO of Acadia Realty Trust, the landlord for the property. “They wanted a special, intimate environment for their customers. When they saw the townhouse, they said ‘Oh my gosh, that’s it! It’s exactly what we’ve been looking for.’”

The Olsen twins, whose ready-to-wear clothing line also includes eyewear and handbags, recently inked a deal for the 3,733-square-foot space, which spans three floors.

Sara Fabian of Cushman & Wakefield represented them in the deal, while Stuart Ellman of Judson Realty represented Acadia.

The property, which has classic Juliette balconies and French doors, was formely occupied by a salon headed by celebrity stylist Sally Hershberger.

This is far from they “you got it dude” lil girl Michelle on the 90’s hit show Full house that we remember. Speaking of Full House the complete series box set came out with in the last year. I wander just how much they are getting in royalties from that deal. Rarely do we hear about these two anymore and at least this time is is positive unlike the news of wild out of control and anorexic stories of years past. Well Good luck girls from all of us here at LockNews.com
