In 2011 Outlets of Colorado will be up and down I-25 working our fashion magic. On January 30, 2011 Outlets at Castle Rock, Outlets at Loveland, and Outlets at Silverthorne will launch The Fashion Ambush with a Colorado Twist. It’s our newest fashion makeover adventure and with the help of my sidekick Craig Coffey, morning reporter on Fox 21 television, will be “ambushing” unsuspecting individuals each month in 2011, at a variety of tourism attractions in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region.
The first Ambush is planned for Sunday, January 30, at Cheyenne Mountain Resort during their Sunday Champagne Brunch at the resort’s signature Mountain View Restaurant.
One lucky diner will be selected for an on-site restyling. The winner is rewarded with a makeover valued at $500 and awarded additional prizes such as a two night stay at Cheyenne Mountain Resort. Ambush subjects receive a wardrobe from the Outlets’ designer retail stores like Off 5th, Ann Taylor and CAbi, a complete expert hair style from Styles Salon, professional makeup and fashion advice. The process is documented on film before, during and after the Fashion Ambush and the resulting three-minute video segment will appear on Fox 21 for several weeks– until the next Ambush occurs.
I’m thrilled with our year-long Fashion Ambush program because we’ll provide information, entertainment, education and advice for Colorado shoppers on how best to maximize their dollars and their look, by shopping at the Outlets of Colorado in Castle Rock, Loveland and Silverthorne.
If you’d like to have the chance for a new makeover (valued at over $500) then you’ll need to be down at Cheyenne Mountain Resort during the Sunday Champagne Brunch. To learn more about the fabulous brunch they serve, click here.

Ambushing an unsuspecting consumer each month at various Colorado Springs and Pikes Peak Region attractions is going to be a blast. With the help of Fox 21 we film each entertaining and authentic episode, sharing how Coloradans can be both budget-conscious and stylish.
See you at Mountain View Restaurant at Cheyenne Mountain Resort on January 30th.
Crewcuts, which is J.Crew’s children clothing concept will open at Outlets at Castle Rock on January 20th. The retailer has taken the great looks that they designed for adults and transformed them into outfits perfect for young boys and girls. The clothing line offers looks for sizes 2 to 14.
Even though we’ve had a unseasonably warm December, I still have Cashmere sweaters on my Christmas list. I’m not too demanding either (really), it can be pure Cashmere (because there are deals to be had out there) or I’d be completely thrilled to receive a sweater in a Cashmere blend w/silk or wool (they still give you the feel of luxe). I can’t help it. I love the way the material makes me feel and how it wears over time.
Cashmere is a soft and breathable material so you can wear it almost year-round. We’ve got great deals on Cashmere at the Outlets of Colorado and you’ll find Cashmere in many of our stores. Check out Saks Fifth Avenue OFF Fifth, J.Crew, Kenneth Cole, Eddie Bauer, Banana Republic, Calvin Klein, and Brooks Brothers to name a few place you can find the latest styles, colors, and fashion. I’ve found everything from turtlenecks, Cabled V-neck, twin sets, and then my favorite Cashmere scarves and gloves. Yummy.
Without any doubt, plaid is a key piece to add to your wardrobe this fall. Although the runways of New York, LA, and London went a bit crazy with head-to-toe plaid, I would suggest adding pieces to your existing wardrobe. For example, add one plaid style with a jacket or scarf.
Over the last two weeks I’ve been pulling merchandise for some TV segments and while out at the Outlets at Castle Rock, Loveland, and Silverthorne and I saw great plaid pieces that would be perfect for fall.
Rue 21 has great looking plaid scarfs in a pretty good selection of colors.
Saks 5th Avenue Off 5th had great looking tops, skirts, and jackets in various plaid styles.
Lucky Jeans great plaid tops.
J.Crew great plaid skirts, tops, and accessories.
Add plaid to your wardrobe this season, you’ll be on the fashion edge and look great too!
