Girls' apparel retailer Too Inc has raised its first-quarter earnings prediction after enjoying good sales recently.

Too expects earnings of 28 cents to 30 cents per share in the quarter, compared to a previous forecast of between 22 cents and 24 cents.

The company said the higher forecast mirrors its expected same-store growth of 6%-7%, which beats its former prediction of a 3% rise.

"Following strong sales in February, March sales for Limited Too and Justice were well above our original expectations, despite the calendar shift of Easter to April this year," said Too chairman, president and CEO Mike Rayden.

"While the full impact of that Easter shift is yet undetermined, we are confident in the strength of our business for the remainder of the quarter."
