Ellie’s Fine Lingerie in Warehouse Row was awarded top honors at the Best of Intima Awards held earlier this month in New York, N.Y. by Intima Magazine. It is the premium lingerie and beachwear publication for the U.S. and Canada. The Best of Intima Awards jury was comprised of 20 high-end brands responsible for nominating and selecting award-worthy retailers. This year’s jury selected Ellie’s Fine Lingerie from among 300 independent retail nominees for the “Best Interior Design.”

“It was thrilling enough to rank 33rd among the 300 nominees for the ‘Best Shop Award,’ but it was really a surprise and honor to win overall ‘Best Interior Design’,” said owner, Betsy Dougherty Henson. “This award demonstrates the high caliber of fashion and design right here in Chattanooga, and especially at Warehouse Row.”

Ellie’s Fine Lingerie is displayed in one of Warehouse Row’s signature boutique spaces, featuring exposed brick and duct work offset with columns and chic modern Victorian décor. Jurors noted that the space creates a striking juxtaposition between industrial design and delicate women’s lingerie, loungewear, sleepwear, nursing apparel and swimwear.

Officials said, "Since 2011, Ellie’s Fine Lingerie has filled a niche in the Chattanooga region for tailored, high-quality lingerie. The independent, locally-owned boutique carries European brands that allow women more opportunities to find their perfect size and style."

The annual Best of Intima Awards is determined by a jury of leading national and international brands. Each year, a jury compiles a list of 300 nominees and selects five Best Shop Award winners and individual winners of various additional categories.

Where Is The Speed Control On Our Highways? - And Response (2)

I am teaching my 15-year-old to drive in the North Georgia and Chattanooga area.

What a liar I am.  Have you driven on the local freeways and highways recently? I never see any highway patrolmen helping to reduce speeding or pulling over those who ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Testerman Forum

I badly misjudged how long it would take me to do my “early voting.” I was in-and-out in no time so I got to the Hamilton County School Board’s agenda meeting well enough beforehand to have an “educational forum” with board member David Testerman. If you haven’t noticed, forums and summits and “community enlightenment” groups are the new rage and, as my friend David laughed, “They ... (click for more)
