A couple of months ago, I reported that a new women's boutique had leased a storefront in the Lionsgate condo building. And that it was leased by the owner of the popular and well-known Sylene lingerie boutique in Chevy Chase.
My source at the time could only confirm it would be a women's apparel shop. The question was, is this a second Sylene location, or is Sylene moving to Bethesda from Friendship Heights? Or, is this a new fashion venture not centered on lingerie?
When I contacted Sylene for that article, their response was a curt statement that they were quite pleased with their current location, and which did not address any of the questions regarding the new Bethesda boutique.
Well, as this spy shot shows, employees of the mystery Bethesda boutique have been working into the night recent evenings, and the window displays are - so far - showcasing... lingerie. Which would suggest that this is indeed a future Sylene store. No official word yet, however.
