Founded by Don and Cathy Statz in 1996, Victorian Village still employs many of its original staffers, who remain dedicated to helping guests find their ideal gift. Sips of gourmet coffee and nibbles of cookies provide much-needed sustenance as shoppers navigate the sprawling 15,999-square-foot store. Collectibles from Brighton, Lladro, and Swarovski beckon from their dedicated nooks, and patterned accessories by Vera Bradley encourage appropriate organization of toiletries, jewelry, and paisley swatch collections.

An 18-acre equestrian retreat, Annwyn Equestrian Center guides riders through lessons atop friendly steeds housed in the center’s 36 spacious stalls. The accomplished instructors lead beginner and experienced horse mounters through one-on-one, 45-minute lessons across the facility’s three lit arenas. Jumping lessons cover riding basics, acquainting drivers with their mammalian carriages before advancing gallopers to fence jumping and puddle splashing. Commonly referred to as "ballet with horses," dressage lessons teach balance and build core strength as horse whisperers move and control their animals with their body instead of with a deceptively out-of-reach carrot. Four-legged vantage points bolster cores with a cardio workout and help riders to gain self-confidence or relieve stress as they braid the mane of a newly acquired equine pal.

Beauty may only be skin deep, but at Zolarium Tanning Studio, that's OK. Versed in a vast array of tanning and skincare services, the studio’s technicians help their clientele achieve golden-bronze hues without having to withstand the sun's creepy leer. Each one is Smart Tan certified, a benchmark that measures each operator's knowledge of ultraviolet light, safe tanning practices, and ability to disassemble a tanning bed should it become sentient. They use this knowledge to monitor each tanner in their studio simultaneously, through Zolarium's networked array of horizontal and vertical tanning beds.
The beautifying treatments don't stop at tanning; DaVinci teeth whitening, Evolv airbrush, and a plethora of skincare lotions help clients maintain all manner of youthful glows. Zolarium also keeps the community looking good, giving back through charitable efforts such as sponsoring the Denver Firefighter Calendar every year.
