80's Mall Stores

Okay, so a coworker and I are trying to remember the name of this 80's mall store. It was a women's clothing store, kinda higher end, with very flowy, artsty type expensive clothing. Everything was tailored but in a flowy way. Large shoulder pads (of course) and big, bulky jewelry.

I think the name of it was a woman's name (kina like Laura Ashley or Brooke Adams or something).

Argh, this is killing meeeeeeee.....
The only thing I can think of is Contempo. I got a couple Prom dresses there.
Ann Taylor?

I thought of another one, Susie's Casuals. Although, I don't remember what their clothes were like.
Lol, noooooo..it was like "Brooke Ashley" or "Lynn Adams"...omg this is sounding ridiculous but it's really annoying me!
Lol. I don't recall anything like either of those. Good luck!
All I can think is Charlotte Russe.

Judys was what my coworker said, but that wasn't it.
It was like really elegant, flowy stuff, lots of wide belts and jersey knits.

This is like torture.
petries?
foxmoor?

I found something online that said Laura Ashley was a clothing line but nothing about a store:

Type of clothing: Dresses/ Skirts
When it was popular: 1980s

Description: Laura Ashley was a very expensive clothing line of frou-frou dresses-very girly, mainly pastels and/or large flower patterns, with poofy sleeves to the elbow, full longer skirts and rounded, Peter Pan collars. Worn with white or pink hose and white ballet flats. Loosely related to Princess Diana's girly style in the '80s, before she went haute couture. Also a line of interior design items like curtains and wallpaper. Laura Ashley Mecca was on Oxford Street in London if I recall correctly.

i actually shopped at a laura ashley's. they had a store in short hills mall in nj. it never had 80's style clothing. it was british styled very conservative, very traditional.
They had one in Dallas too if I recall correctly. May have also been in the mall in Kansas City. I remember the stores but can't remember where I was when I went to one.

Laura Ashley had stores but they were known for flowery fabrics and flouncy dresses. I bet you're thinking of Jean Nicole.
