Clementine women’s clothing boutique has made its move from just off of Rte. 9 in Wellesley Hills to Church Square. The exterior sign over the 30 Church St. space may still say Xylem, but don’t be fooled. Outside, the bright orange paint on the door simply shrieks Clementine. Inside, the space is in a fresh state of transformation, with one lovely nod to the previous owner’s excellent eye for design — in evidence are former Xylem proprietor Madalene Sullivan’s signature white display frames. That must be good feng shui or something.
The Church Square shopping area has undergone significant changes over the past year; currently the former Terrazza, Blue Ginger, and Susu are shuttered. Smith & Wollensky is quickly filling up dumpsters as it renovates the former Blue Ginger space and expects to open in Spring. We’ve heard rumors here and there about what’s going into Terrazza and Susu, but time will tell.
