For Metro version: Go to Settings - Options and click on clear history.

I'd try SkypeX.  It's a little tool to delete Skype messages and convos.  I haven't tried it in Windows 8, yet, but if it doesn't work, just contact the guy who created it.  He updates it pretty often.  bryancockerham.com/skypex-delete-skype-messages
