A Vera Bradley store is coming to Towson Town Center mall next month.

UPDATE: The store is expected to open in mid-February, a mall representative said.

The maker of colorful, cotton-quilted handbags, accessories, luggage and other items will open its fourth location in Maryland on level 2 near Crate & Barrel, Towson mall officials  said.

The store will sell all Vera Bradley products and expects to schedule in-store events. The retailer, founded in 1982 with the goal of inspiring women to "be colorful," has 75 U.S. locations and annual sales of $461 million.
