Retail Roomates

Shops shack up to weather tough economic times.

Recession-era retailing requires just the sort of creative thinking that these Westchester shops have shown: they have moved inside other stores to lower expenses and increase traffic, yet still are individually owned and operated.

The Shop Chiara Scura
High-fashion women’s shoes and accessories, formerly in the Elephant’s Trunk building in Mount Kisco
Gifts by Paradise Ali
Gift items for all ages/occasions, previously on Weaver Street in Scarsdale
Lubin’s of Rothman’s
(formerly known as Lubin’s of Westchester) Dress apparel for boys and young men, formerly on Knollwood Road in White Plains
Its New Digs Tiger Lily
139 E Main St,
Mount Kisco,
(914) 244-4201
My Lily Pad
14 Rye Ridge Plz,
Rye Brook
(914) 251-9171
Rothman’s
1 Boniface Circle,
Scarsdale
(914) 428-5725
The Outcome “The store looks and works like it’s always been this way,” says Tiger Lily owner Cathy Deutsch. “But now it’s like having your own walk-in closet.” “The move was definitely beneficial for both of us,” says Ali Paradise, owner of Paradise Ali. “We’ve each gotten new clients from one another; my old clients have discovered My Lily Pad and hers have discovered my shop.” “We learn from each other,” says Lubin’s owner Barry Kirschner.

Churchills
41 S Moger Ave, Mount Kisco, (914) 666-4800
Fashion lovers are flocking to this ultra-chic shop. “We present classic European and American designers usually only found in Madison Avenue boutiques and at Bergdorf Goodman,” says co-owner Lori Land. Expect everything from Ilara Nistri luxury cotton T-shirts ($75-$200) to Kiton men’s suiting ($6,000), including Luciano Barbera cashmere sweaters and wraps ($350-$1,100), Incotex men’s trousers ($165-$265), and cocktail rings and funky hoops ($750-$5,000) from Itay Malkin’s Black Diamond Collection.

Eau De Luxe
188 Martine Ave, White Plains (914) 328-3358
An enticing selection of more than 300 men’s and women’s fragrances ranging from popular celebrity scents to rare imports—and even discontinued lines—are sold at this new perfumery launched by Sudhir Gupta, a 25-year fragrance-biz veteran. His offerings include Perry Ellis’s men’s cologne citrus spray ($25), a rose-based Juliette Has A Gun scent ($85-$135), and the hard-to-come-by Rance cologne ($95-$135).

Dejà Vu Again
108 Adee St, Port Chester, (914) 481-1160
Scoop up gently used designer labels like Louis Vuiton and Hermès and some new fashions at this new upscale resale shop specializing in current seasonal apparel and accessories for men and women. “We like to say our customers can look like royalty but on a commoner’s budget,” says co-owner Regina Murray. We spotted a Chanel quilted bag that retails for $2,750, sold here for $900; a classic Burberry trench originally priced at $900, here for $220; and brand-new Tory Burch wedges that retail for $225, here for $88.

No Stone Unturned
96 Kraft Ave, Bronxville (914) 779-0109
While great accessories can make an outfit, they also can break a bank account. So how refreshing it is that this new jewelry boutique presents stylish yet timeless pieces bearing price tags of $75-or-less? “People need a place to go for fashionable, moderately priced jewelry,” says storeowner Lisa Bellacero. We spotted—and covet—a Lariat silk-thread necklace ($59.99) and a chunky black acrylic ring ($19.99).
