This unique Portland lingerie store goes far beyond your usual intimate apparel shopping experience. The merchandise is displayed in antique armoires and trunks, all of which are for sale, so it has a very different feel from most intimate’s boutiques. The shop records customer preferences and wish lists, and e-mails a friendly reminder when favorite items are in stock.
The Eastside location is over 1,000 square feet in a 100-year-old landmark building that was once a dance studio. The abundance of space and high ceilings makes it the perfect spot for monthly art shows for local painters and photographers. The shop hosts a First Friday artist’s reception each month with champagne and cupcakes. Locals really turn out for frequent fashion shows, trunk shows and other events on these nights when the store stays open late (9 p.m.).
