Please See- 

Why can't I find or install an app from the Windows Store?

 

This is the Store link.

Very same problem here. If I click on "Download Now" on the download page, the app store opens, but skype is nowhere to be found.

 

Searching windows store yields the same result.

 

Is this because I am running the customer preview Win8?

Probably. You can try updating to Windows Pro.

Re: Can't find skype on my windows 8 store

since upgrading to windows 8 I installed skype (with some difficulty) on my desktop. When I try to do the same on my wife's desktop (same computer) I can't find the skype icon in the Store.
