Bloomers is coming to 3210 O Street, NW in Georgetown. They currently have locations in Shirlington and Old Town Alexandria. Their website says:
Bloomers is the vision of Bellacara co-founder, Kim Putens, who sought to create a unique store focusing on underwear, sleepwear and loungewear, and NOT lingerie.
Feeling that most shops of its kind focused too much on lingerie, Kim was frustrated with the lack of stores offering just the basics and simple, beautiful lounge and sleepwear. She preferred comfortable undergarments, sleepwear and loungewear that didn’t look like her husband’s sweatpants and college t-shirts, but slinky lingerie does not fit the bill either. So, Kim set out to create a boutique where comfort and practicality, as well as style and beauty, are the focus. In fact, when Kim is buying sleepwear for the store, she always asks herself ‘will I be mortified if my young son sees me in this?’
As Kim always says, lingerie stores are intimidating and most of us feel uncomfortable in them when all we want is to simply buy a new bra or get a cute pair of underwear. And, while we all like to look our best on the outside, it’s what’s underneath that can make the difference.

Effortless elegance is coming to Georgetown. EastBanc, Inc. and Jamestown announced today that Calypso St. Barth — the upscale women’s apparel and luxury home furnishings retailer — has signed a ten-year lease to occupy the retail space at 3307 M Street NW in its Georgetown Renaissance portfolio. The expansive 2,718-square-foot showroom space will serve as the store’s first DC location and will replace the current double occupants AT&T Wireless and Salon Rafik. Calypso St. Barth will aim for a grand opening in early spring 2014.
Loved by women of all ages, Calypso St. Barth combines exquisite textures, rich colors and special embellishments to offer a refreshing sense of escape. Founded in 1992, the brand has grown from a modest resort-wear boutique to a luxury lifestyle brand, including an exotic home collection.
The home collection features pieces by contemporary American and European designers and mixes natural textiles from around the world to transform any living space into an effortlessly chic haven.
The Calypso St. Barth retail space is a prime commercial streetscape property in Georgetown’s M Street corridor. Augmenting the collection of distinguished designer brands currently located in the EastBanc and Jamestown Georgetown Renaissance portfolio, Calypso St. Barth will round out the retail quarter as DC’s ground zero of modern fashion, furniture and lifestyle goods.
The Calypso St. Barth lease agreement is part of the recent surge of Georgetown Renaissance leasing activity that includes deals with popular home retailers such as CB2 and West Elm and luxury fashion retailers such as Intermix. The Calypso St. Barth deal also confirms Georgetown’s movement westward toward stylish lifestyle brands and will balance the current mix of fashion tenants – Intermix, Bonobos, Babette, Relish, City Sports and The North Face – with women’s well-appointed apparel.
Back in Jan. we heard some scuttlebutt that Immortal Beloved Hair Salon would be moving into Muleh’s retail space at at 1831 14th Street, NW. Last week Muleh quietly opened in their new space a few storefronts away at 1821 14th St, NW in the former Lux Design Store. Looking good:
A worker inside Muleh says that Immortal Beloved will move into their old space after an extensive renovation.
Walking in here will make you feel like you’ve crossed into another dimension, one in which both time and logic ceases and thousands of years of human advancement towards what is considered civilized behavior is suddenly negated for no apparent reason whatsoever.
You’re greeted by a cop as you walk in and that sets the tone for the type of ride that you’ve unknowingly been in line for since you egressed from your mother’s womb: the world is unstable and this place reeks of crack smoke and decades of failed domestic policies.
All CVS’s are, by default, limited to one star. The lines take forever, everything is overpriced, the CVS card and brand of products are terrible, and the goods and provisions offered are always peculiar.
This store, however, is a social sciences experiment and is brilliant as such. I avoid this place with all of my heart, yet my mind is sadistically drawn here to catch a chaotic glimpse of how close humanity toes a line protecting us from madness.
Back in Feb. 2013 confirmed some scuttlebutt that a Billy Reid clothing store would be moving into the former Pizzeria Uno space at 3211 M Street, NW. They open Friday. From the Georgetown BID:

Save Max’s Best! Max has just been notified that he is losing his lease on June 30. This will mean that after 20 years he will be forced to leave Glover Park. Please like this page to show your support of Max and his contribution to our neighborhood.
Rocklands Barbeque and Grilling Company today announced it will be expanding its restaurant in Glover Park, where the company’s flagship restaurant will extend its business into 2416 Wisconsin Avenue.
Owner John Snedden has long had an interest in increasing the size of Rocklands’ original location. “The single most repeated desire from our fans over the years has been to have more space to sit and eat,” said Snedden.
“For 20 years, at least twice per year, I have written a letter to the landlord saying that if space became available we would love to be able to expand. When we were contacted by the landlord to ask if we were still interested, I said yes: Since we opened more than 22 years ago, we’ve been barbequing for our customers in a space about the size of a one-bedroom apartment. We are sorry to see Max’s Best Ice Cream go; we’ve always enjoyed having Max’s Best as a neighbor. We are thrilled, however, to be able to offer our guests more space so they can sit with family and friends to eat their barbeque.”
