Hi everyone!

I'm staying in Colorado for this week for my business. Although this is my second time to visit the US, it's really the first time since I started collecting solid perfumes!

After 14 hours of the flight, I'was so excited to go to the EL shops and, yes, I did purchase these two: Glorious Peacock and Framed Memories. I am sooooo happy now!!

Thank you for your welcome, Margaret, Don & Margaret, and Katita!

By the way, as I read the posts, under the topic 'Best Price On Spring Solids', it says there is CCS in Denver! Where exactly is it? Could anyone tell me, please??

Hi Erica,
You're just a quick 8 hours from me laugh.gif
You can ask at your hotel for the outlet mall in town and I'm sure someone will take you. Check the telephone book under Premier Outlet Malls. I think it's Premier?? But, really someone at the hotel should know. Once you find it just check the directory for the CCS and also look for a Judith Leiber store. They're having a big sale now.
Sorry, I don't have the address for you. Try googling outlet malls Denver or Premier Outlet or Tangenger (spelling is wrong on this) I just can't remember the name but it starts with a T. That's how I found the CCS's or google cosmetic company store I know you will find it.
Enjoy your stay in the US. Colorado is a beautiful state.

Good morning, Erica biggrin.gif
No, this isn't the one. The outlet mall is in Denver. This seems to be about 1 hour from Denver closer to Vail. Check with Ribbit on this site. You should be able to search her name and email her. She's from Denver I bet she knows right where the CCS is . When you find it let me know which solids they have. Also, there should be a Saks or Neimans or at least a Dillards close by.
Hope you find your hearts desire. biggrin.gif

Ribbit let me know that Silverthorne is it. Thanks, Ribbit!!

It's almost 2 hours from where I'm staying! Since I do not get used to driving a car even in Japan, I have no car here. What am I gonna do?

Hello Erica and a big welcome to the Rocky Mountain area of the US! smile.gif

Sorry I'm late on this post. Just wanted to say of course Ribbit is correct that the nearest CCS is in Silverthorne. Its located on the Interstate, but its right in the middle of the Rocky Mountains so withour a car, you won't get there. Thats the closest CCS and yes I have called them up a couple of times. The girls have been real nice over the phone with me, but still that CCS is a good 8 hour drive from where I live. When I've been in Denver, Cherry Creek Mall with Saks and Neimans has been the place to go to for looking and buying solids. I have no doubt you have been there. Those stores are the smallest in square footage in their respective chain of stores. Therefore, when they get solids they don't get a lot of each solid. I do know that Saks in Denver has all 3 of the 2006 spring solids. That was a surprise to me as I thought Neimans had their own exclusive solids which you couldn't get at Saks and vise versa.

KK, you have me beat in the number of hours to get to Denver by car. From my Wyoming house it takes me a little over 6 hours of solid driving to get there. Depending on traffic out of Ft. Collins into Denver can add another hour. Such it goes living in our part of the US, but I'm more than happy where I'm at (even though I'm jealous of you urban people where seeing solid compacts doesn't require a 6 hour drive to get to the store). laugh.gif

Take care everyone,
Gigi

Thank you Joni, katita, and Gigi for you kindness!

A member at the same session took me to the Silverthorne today. I've just come back from there. Gigi, you are right, anyone can get there without a car.

Because we departed late, we had only an hour for shopping. :-( But anyway, I went straight to the CCS and got some solid perfumes. Yeaaaaaah!!

I got Acorn and Horseshoe, $60 for each. Other than these, there were Pagoda, Wedding Cake, Judith Leibers'(Lion, Monkey, Dog, Chick), Dachshund, Bow, Red Bird on a leaf(forgot the name), Ladybug, Four Leaf Clover, Mushroom, Butterfly(those two by J.Strongwater), Cameo pendant... I don't remember well, but the clark said Chick still costs $240 or $260. ohmy.gif

I'm so excited that there are still so many solids. It was so fun!!
Again, thank you very much, everyone!! biggrin.gif
