Hanging out the ham

Meanwhile, out where the snow bunnies take the Sun [sic] on skis, in Aspen, our friends at Peruvian Connection opened their eighth store on Mill Street, ready for the winter guests.

No matter how good the conditions are on the slopes, people love Aspen for its shopping, too. The town’s appreciation for glitz has created one of the most compelling square miles of shopping in America, surpassing all other Colorado ski resorts (nothing even comes close). And Peruvian’s unique style and quality and amazing price points are a big hit.

In December, they celebrated the opening of their newest location with an invite-only grand opening celebration, which also served as a fundraiser for the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet. PC also has a retail store in Santa Fe so the partnership was a natural fit. Peruvian’s founder Annie Zander was there greeting guests.
