Getting to Know Denise Silverman, and her sister, Donna Lennon, Owners of Closet Full of Linens and Drawer Full of Lingerie, you feel like you’re a midst Southern Comfort. Denise Silverman recalls her mother, Lily Silverman, selling linens from the basement of their home in New Jersey in the early 1970’s. “She just loved anything having to do with linens,” Denise says of her mom. Lily eventually opened a store in New Jersey, and, in 1976, she launched a Closet Full of Linens in Pompano Beach.
When Denise graduated from Bauder Fashion College in 1976, she decided to help her mother with the store; three years later, Denise took it over. Lily then launched a lingerie business, Drawer Full of Lingerie, in the same plaza. Donna Lennon was teaching finance at the University of Miami (her alma mater) in 1982, when sister Denise Silverman, approached her about opening a second, adjoining Closet Full of Linens and Drawer Full of Lingerie in Boca Raton, Florida. “I had never intended on academia as my career,” Lennon says. “This is just how things worked out.”
Today, Denise maintains the store in Boca Raton exclusively. The sisters decided to close the Pompano location about five years ago, when their parents retired. Silverman runs both the linens section and handles the lingerie. “It’s evolved into a well-oiled machine,” Denise says. The sister’s acknowledge that their tastes are quite different, but the trust is there.
