A few weeks back, Lexi Brown told us the plight of the ladies who run Preen, a Congress Street boutique that was facing eviction to make room for Mr. An's new downtown bar and restaurant.

Here's good news from Preen co-owner Emilie Marchand. Mark your calendar for a big party on Friday, Feb. 26:


I'd like to let you know some details about Preen—a boutique featuring vintage goods, alterations, and original designs—and our upcoming move.

We will be closing our doors at the current location on Congress Street on Feb. 18. This means that our last door open here is on Feb. 17. After a few days of moving and setting up, we will re-open at 210 N. 4th Avenue. For those of you who aren't familiar with the space, it was most recently Conrad Wilde Gallery and is nestled between The Shanty and The Book Stop. We are thrilled about this new shop! With twice the square footage we will be able to have increased inventory, a much larger sewing studio and more emphasis on local music and vintage records (as well as a baby grand piano!!). Our hours will be changing to Tuesday through Saturday from 10am until 6pm and Sunday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

To celebrate, we will host an opening reception on Friday, February 26, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Along with refreshments, this party will feature the music of Bajo Turbato (a new project by Chris Black and Gabriel Sullivan), tunes spun by DJ Singularity, and mingling models provide by Black Cherry Burlesque who will parade to the Rialto for "Powhaus Productions Presents POP" at the end of the evening.
