One of the newest retailers in Chevy Chase is Sugar Belle’s, a women’s apparel and accessories boutique at 547 Euclid Avenue.
It’s the second store for owner Katie Ledford. Her first Sugar Belle’s, in her hometown of Winchester, celebrated its first anniversary in June. A little after that and “lo and behold,” she said the spot opened up on Euclid.
“I always wanted to be in Lexington,” said Ledford, a graduate of the University of Kentucky. “I always thought that it’s a great shopping area.”
At the two locations as well at the online store you’ll find contemporary brands including Buddy Love, Izzy & Lola, and Lauren James.
For UK fans, “We have tons of blue,” she said. And the Lexington store just started carrying a line of Greek sorority items including hats, mugs and sweatshirts. Shopsugarbelles.com.
