Shopping Tip: Mexx to Close

By: Leslie Milk

Hip retailer Mexx is closing its two DC stores in July (3229 M Street, NW and in Tysons Corner).  Don’t blame it on Washington women who have an undeserved rep for frumpiness—Mexx is also closing its New York stores.  Parent company Liz Claiborne is reportedly going to put its resources behind its Kate Spade and Juicy Couture brands instead.
