After working for their father in the clothing business, three brothers named Charlotte Russe after their favorite French dessert. The first store opened in 1975 in Carlsbad, California. They opened several locations in San Diego, and eventually a much larger store outside the city.

In the 1990's, the brothers decided to change their style to appeal to their original customers who were now older and had daughters of their own. They kept the Southern California style but expanded the options to include items for both mothers and daughters.

In 1995, Charlotte Russe was acquired by Saunders Karp & Megrue (SKM). These new owners took Charlotte Russe to the next level by expanding to locations across the United States. They made Charlotte Rusee a national brand and changed from stand-alone stores to shopping mall locations.

Charlotte Russe is currently owned by Advent International and operates in 46 states across the United States. Their philanthropic efforts include raising over 2.2 million dollars for cancer research.
