Savvy on State opened in Santa Barbara August 1st, 2011. The owner's name is Erica and she comes from Boulder, Colorado. Erica graduated in 2005 from the University of Colorado with a double degree in International Affairs and Political Science. However, she knew her heart was in fashion and retail. Erica's first store, Savvy on Pearl, opened in Boulder May of 2007. After spending some time in Santa Barbara, she fell in love with the town and decided to open up in one of the old Blue Bee spaces. In just two short months she created a sister store, Savvy on State. Erica now has the luxury of living in sunny California and visiting beautiful Boulder, where her store Savvy on Pearl is still located.
