Storefront Report: Silver Lake apparel store opens in an out-of-sight location

When Eileen Burke moved to Los Angeles from Charlotte, she looked across the city for a spot to reopen her apparel store focused on affordable clothes for young women and teens. She finally found a space in the 3300 block of Sunset Boulevard  behind a bike shop and a vintage fashion store.  Walk down a narrow passageway and through a small patio and you will find her small store, Eileen, where dresses, blouses, scarves and other items are priced no higher than $49.  Said Burke via email:

I‘m pretty casual myself, so the clothing is fun and comfy, nothing too formal or fancy.  I update my website with pics of the new goods.  Typically I buy 2 smalls, 2 meds, 1 large.  Guests like to see what’s arriving day to day so they have a chance to pop in before it sells.

Eileen is currently open Wednesday – Sunday from 11  a.m. to 6 pm.

3318 W. Sunset Blvd., Silver Lake

  1. Such a cute spread! I’m looking forward to checking it out. Until then, are you planning on having an online shop?

  2. Fatties — that is, anyone over 110 lbs — need not apply! Eileen doesn’t want your business!

  3. thanks for the responses!

    online shop? i had one when i was on the east coast but disbanded it for the transition. we’ll get there again!

    over 110 pounds? well, i’m over 110 pounds and can wear all but a few slim skirts from the collection. it’s difficult to accommodate all body shapes and types in 400 square feet.

  4. limited hours today, wed, oct 5th, due to unforeseen emergency! see you thurs!
