The Prissy Peach, a boutique offering women’s clothing and accessories, is moving into the former Morris Book Shop at 882 East High Street. Plans are to open the store March 25.

Owner Holly Goeing opened the original Prissy Peach at 55 South Main Street in Winchester in 2015. But she didn’t stop there.

“I actually started looking for a space in Lexington in September,” she said. After looking at potential spots, including one near Woodland Avenue, the former Morris Book Shop site became available.

Brands carried by Prissy Peach include Uncle Frank apparel, Erimish beaded bracelets and Endless Rose. One of the best-sellers is jeans by Articles of Society. “We sell tons of those,” she said.

The transformation of the Lexington space is coming along. ‘We’ve got furniture being delivered tomorrow,’ Goeing said Tuesday. “Our sign should go up within the next week.”
