Compiled by Mary Ann Galante, Times staff writer

Olivia Newton-John has arrived in Santa Ana. At least her clothing chain has.

Koala Blue, the women’s clothing retailer founded by the singer and her partner, Pat Farrar, will officially open its seventh store at MainPlace/Santa Ana on Tuesday.

The Los Angeles-based chain now owns, operates and licenses 26 stores in the United States, Canada and Japan, with plans to expand to more than 80 stores throughout the world by 1991, company executives said.

Privately owned Koala Blue expects its 1988 sales to top $14 million, according to the company.
