In honor of Mother’s Day, we’d like to give a shout-out to some of our locally owned mother/daughter businesses.

Robin Greger and her daughter, Ilana Kashdan, opened the contemporary B Scene at Cabin John Mall in Potomac in 2002.

B Scene is currently running 20 percent off your entire purchase through Mother’s Day.

Betty Barati and her two daughters, Shiva Zarghan and Sherri Hatam, opened Belina boutique in Bethesda’s Wildwood Shopping Center nine years ago.

Hatam says if you mention this blog, you’ll receive 20 percent off through Mother’s Day.

Also at Wildwood Shopping Center is Madeline (301-564-9087), started by Susan Rosen in 1990 whose mother also had her own store. 


Rosen named her shop after her daughter. The store has ongoing regular daily sale items.
