This might save someone else a few minutes of puzzlement. I wish I’d known about it yesterday.

If you change your Evernote password on a device other than Windows 8, there’s a good chance that your Windows 8 Metro version of Evernote will silently stop syncing. Mine did. I saw no visible indication that syncs were failing, until I looked for some changes I had made elsewhere and realized they weren’t there on my Windows 8 machine.

If that happens, my advice is, don’t even bother trying to figure out where to enter the new password in the Windows 8 app. Just open Evernote, bring up the Charms menu (Windows-C for example), go to Settings, Account Info, Sign Out. Then sign back in with your new password. Now it should sync normally.
