Pampered Passions Fine Lingerie’s founder and CEO, Alicia Vargo, strives to nurture the female spirit by instilling confidence through properly fitted undergarments, loungewear, and swimsuits that are comfortable and make women feel beautiful. After a bad experience at a national lingerie chain, Alicia shifted her focus in 2001 to creating a warm and welcoming website where ladies of any shape and size could discover sexy, flirty, and fun lingerie. Two years later, the first Pampered Passions Fine Lingerie store set up shop with racks of international lingerie, intimate apparel, and friendly staffers who offered complimentary custom bra fittings. Now, a decade later, Alicia has garnered the Denver Business Journal’s Outstanding Women in Business Award as she and her knowledgeable staff continue to outfit women with designer lingerie and apparel from Chantelle, Claire Pettibone, and Axami.
Aiming to nurture women further, Alicia provides special services to postmastectomy patients that include fittings by certified mastectomy-bra fitters as well as retailing mastectomy-centric lingerie and sewing pockets into most apparel available at the store. As a self-proclaimed feel-good junkie, Alicia also supports the battle against breast cancer through the founding of the Breast Cancer Pirates support group, which partners with the Highlands Ranch Community Association to raise money through their annual fashion show, and by donating time and money to Dress for Success.
For a decade, outdoor DIVAS has stocked women-only fitness items and apparel for just about any exercise class or outdoor activity, taking away the frustration of scouring numerous websites or department stores for individual pieces. Cofounder and President Kim Walker, an avid athlete and mother, found herself constantly frustrated when shopping for women's skiing equipment—either everything she found was made for larger male bodies or only had a few options to choose from. She decided to take matters into her own hands, opening a rare female-focused athletic shop. Since then, her company has launched outdoorDIVAS.com and a second brick-and-mortar store in Denver.
Runners, mountain climbers, skiers, and swimmers alike can find the equipment they need to partake in their favorite sport. Scarpa footwear and Black Diamond twist locks help climbers scurry up mountainsides safely. Patagonia board shorts, meanwhile, are made from all-recycled polyester and spandex, so aquatic athletes can sustain the oceans in which they swim simply by wearing pink spandex shorts—also the reason most environmentalists wear them at seminars.
When Phil and Chris Rivard's kids began to fly the nest, the husband and wife started dreaming about another way to put the teamwork they’d honed over the years to good use. Their synergy and their insatiable desire for new experiences drove them to fulfill their long-time wish to own their own business: Apricot Lane—a fashion-forward boutique stocked with women's designer clothing.
Inside the contemporary retail outlet, dazzling chandeliers illuminate elegant wrought-iron shelves and racks filled with clothes from designers such as MM Couture, Elan, and vfish. Denim from Miss Me and Joe's Jeans wraps lower halves in style, and Nino Bossi handbags boldly carry everyday essentials or clingy pet rocks.
An expansive mirror's bold black border frames customers as they flaunt brightly colored frocks or one-of-a-kind jewelry from It Originals. Deep orange walls and exposed brick lend the shop a cozy, modern air, and hardwood floors lend a perfect surface for testing out tap-dancing skills in potential shoe purchases.
Agates, amethysts, and luminous glass beads come alive in the settings that The Colorado Bead Company’s jewelry instructors help students design— elegant yet whimsical loops of wire, antique-looking chains, earring hoops that recall delicate dreamcatchers. Classes bring out the jewelry artist in kids, adults, and even first-time crafters who get to experience the thrill of walking out clad in the necklaces they've just designed. The shop glistens with strands and packets of such exotic baubles as freshwater pearls, hypoallergenic beads, and Swarovski crystal beads, ready to be incorporated into a new project or used to make a pair of maracas sound classier. Shoppers browse in a bright, open space lined with huge windows, hardwood floors, and airy flower prints.
Rows of lofty wooden bookshelves sweep across $2 Buck Books, each packed with new and used books in a range of genres. Corridors of fiction and nonfiction books meander across the 4,000-square-foot shop, brimming with both hard and soft covers. The entire back corner of the store dedicates itself to romance novels, and a wall of children's books towers over child-sized chairs and tables. In addition to books, the store purveys a variety of DVDs, CDs, and records, along with Melissa & Doug children's puzzles. The store's exchange policy invites customers to trade in books or a sister's professionally bound diary in exchange for store credit, and its online Amazon store allows the shop to special order newer or rare selections.
