Prince of Petworth reports that Toucan Boutique will fill the space in the 1900 block of Ninth Street that was formerly home to Lettie Gooch. The boutique, which appears to have had an online presence for a few years, comes to us from a mother-and-daughter team. It "will feature a new generation of designers, both American and international, who offer women greater originality and freedom in casual clothing." For its opening, Toucan Boutique will present two Brazilian brands that are known for their exclusive designs and prints: Cantão and Redley.
It will be exciting to welcome this unique store to the neighborhood! With Basiliko Gallery opening across the street, Dickson Wine Bar coming to nearby U Street, The Brixton Pub coming to the corner of Ninth and U Street, and a handful of noteworthy developments in the pipeline (e.g., the Jazz at Florida Avenue), this area is booming!
