Very Skinny boxwood style shrub?

Does anyone know the name of the very narrow shrubs that are evergreen, have small leaves like a boxwood and long erect branches sort of like a cypress? I've seen them in various landscapes but due to the off season can't find them at home improvement stores yet. They seem to get pretty tall (5-6' +?) but are only about 12" wide. Thanks!

Ok guys don't think I'm crazy--I found the shrub at a nursery near my job. Turns out it's the Sky Pencil in the Ilex family. Sorry if I stumped you. Here's a pic for those who may benefit--I hope it uploads...
