Definitions Design Wear's stock rotates weekly with new selections in formal gowns, jeans, and swimwear available in sizes ranging from zero to 24. Intentionally buying stock in small quantities and staying away from wholesale distributors, the boutique strives to keep its customers garbed in fashions as unique as a snowflake's fingerprint. Keep cool with a tank top in classic white ($7.99–$24.99) or slip on an orange tank adorned with a festive ruffle for a walk along the beach with flip-flops in tow ($9.99). Trendsetters can dive into designer swimwear from brands including Polo, Burberry, and Gucci ($39.99–$79.99), or flaunt their bipedalism with stretchy leggings, pants, or trendy jeans ($11.99–$39.99). An array of 2,500 special-order formal-gown designs in a variety of hues and fits ($120+) helps gals gussy up for school dances and traffic court appearances. Customers can accessorize new ensembles with belts, bracelets, and necklaces ($9.99–$29.99), or store scoops of gelato in a luxurious Italian leather handbag ($149.99+).
Held every year, the Kitchens with Altitude tour supports the Junior League of Colorado Springs, an organization that promotes volunteerism and developing women's potential throughout the Pikes Peak region through its charitable showcase of the region's most sophisticated residential kitchens. Tour-goers journey through a self-guided tour of the area's most upscale neighborhoods, scoping out gleaming appliances and getting marooned on elegant islands of marble and oak. At various homes along the path, the day's culinary odyssey will cover current trends in tabletop design and floral arrangements as well as cooking demonstrations and food and drink samples from renowned local chefs as they shout monosyllabic catchphrases at their ingredients. All tour proceeds support projects and programs benefiting women and children in El Paso County and the Junior League's Fantasy Flight and Kids in the Kitchen programs.
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.
