Everly & Monet Children’s Design Store To Close in Bethesda
Business will remain open online, focusing on general design
Everly & Monet operates at 4912-A Del Ray Avenue
Everly & Monet, a design store selling baby supplies and accessories on Del Ray Avenue, will close at the end of December and shift its focus to online retail, its owner said.
The store has operated in Bethesda for 12 years, originally under the name Daisy Baby. Owner Dana M.K. Evans changed the name to a play on her daughter’s name, Ever Monet, last year.
“It’s sad for me because we’ve been in the community for so long,” Evans said. “But retail’s changed.”
Starting next year, Evans plans to operate the business out of her Bethesda home. She still will offer furniture and products for young children’s rooms, but also will broaden her focus to general interior design.
Everly & Monet has a 25 percent clearance sale this week as she decreases that part of her business. Evans said sales will increase as the end of the year approaches.
The closure of Everly & Monet will mean one fewer business on an increasingly quiet block of Del Ray Avenue. Quincy’s a few doors down remains closed as its owners continue bankruptcy proceedings.
