WESTPORT — Scout & Molly’s, a national chain of boutiques selling women’s clothing, is opening a local outlet at Playhouse Square, 275 Post Road East.

The shop, which offers designer brands and a personal stylist, marks its official opening April 2 with discounts and refreshments, according to publicity for the business.

“We are so excited to open Scout and Molly's at the Playhouse Square shopping center,” Genevieve Bouchard, the local store owner, said in the statement. “We offer unique brands that cover the latest trends and also appeal to diverse tastes and styles. Visiting Scout & Molly’s is meant to be a welcoming and fun experience as much as it is a shopping destination, and we are thrilled to be bring this to the women of Westport.”

The fashion boutique is the first business venture for Bouchard, who previously worked in the financial-services field. During that earlier career, according to the Scout & Molly’s publicity, Bouchard came to realize “how important the role of fashion plays in people’s lives. Regardless of whether you are an executive, stay at home mom, or full-time student, how you dress is an expression of yourself and getting it right is difficult in today’s fast-paced environment.”

Regular hours for the Scout & Molly’s boutique, 275 Post Road East, are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday, noon-5 p.m. For more information, visit www.westport.scoutandmollys.com .
