CARROLL GARDENS—The identity of the new tropical-seeming boutique at 231 Smith has been revealed: it is to be called Epaulet. The men's and women's clothing store is coming strong out of the gate with a Walter pop-up shop starting May 8th and running through June 12th. The 8th is also the date of the shop's grand opening party (from 7:30 to 10pm). Expect more pop-ups from the boutique in the future. [RackedWire]
