Eileen Fisher, an upscale clothing retailer known for simplicity, is moving its Eastside store from Redmond Town Center to Bellevue Square. The retailer will remain open in Redmond until its new store at Bellevue Square is ready sometime this summer.

Irvington, N.Y.-based Eileen Fisher is one of a half-dozen additions planned for Bellevue Square this year, along with the previously announced arrivals of Lacoste and Burberry.

Speaking to the Bellevue Downtown Association meeting today, the mall’s marketing manager, Jennifer Leavitt, said Vera Bradley will open its first Washington state store at Bellevue Square next month. Based in Fort Wayne, Ind., Vera Bradley sells quilted handbags, luggage, stationary and rugs.

Also, two Asian-themed restaurants, Boom Noodle and Blue C, will take up two floors where Borders and JZ Rose used to be. JZ Rose stays on the third floor.
