An Unexpected Find: Style and Savings Make a Splash at Glenwood Hot Springs

November 2, 2013 Destination North America No Comments Email Email
The world-famous Glenwood Hot Springs Pool and its award-winning Spa of the Rockies often take top billing in the media, but the Glenwood Hot Springs Sport Shop – a boutique brimming with swimwear, trendy clothing and gifts – is a shopping destination in its own right. In addition to fashion finds, informed shoppers can save a bundle in the store just by visiting the resort’s website.

GHS_1503_lg“Our guests are surprised to find out they don’t have to leave the premises to have access to a premier shopping experience,” said Jeremy Gilley, the Glenwood Hot Springs director of sales and revenue.

Part of what makes the shopping exceptional is that, each month, the Sport Shop posts a savings coupon to its website, which visitors can download, print and then redeem in the boutique. These coupons change on the first of each month and often highlight seasonal offerings. Examples of past coupons include $20 off any ladies swimsuit and 20 percent off new fall sportswear. An upcoming coupon – just in time for holiday shopping – is $10 off a purchase of $50 or more.

“The variety of merchandise, combined with monthly savings coupons, keeps customers coming back to see what’s new,” Judy Myers, manager of the Glenwood Hot Springs Sport Shop.

In addition to providing a local shopping hub, the Glenwood Hot Springs Sport Shop also actively reaches out to the regional community through participation in annual fashion shows, which raise funds for various charitable organizations. The spring and fall shows feature local models showcasing in-season merchandise to a discerning audience of fashion lovers and philanthropists. “I do all my shopping in New York, Los Angeles and the Glenwood Hot Springs Sport Shop,” said Aspen resident Joan Cooley.

Basics with a twist include pieces from companies like Last Tango and Slim-station. Customers can also indulge current fashion trends with clothing from Elena Wang, Aventura, Young Essence and Cover Charge.

“I am constantly culling the markets for items that are suited to our specific clientele,” said Diemoz-Deraddo. “Our customer is active, stylish and values quality at a fair price point.” In anticipation of the fall and winter seasons, Diemoz-Deraddo has stocked the store with faux fur jackets, coats and vests, on-trend lace tops, dressy tunics and a huge assortment of leggings, scarves and cold-weather accessories.

No matter what the season, one item shoppers can always count on finding at the Glenwood Hot Springs Sport Shop is swimwear for the whole family. Offering one of the largest selections of swimwear in the state, brands include Longitude, Skye, Sunsets, It Figures, Beach Native, Anne Cole, La Blanca, Magic Suit, Body Glove and Quicksilver. The Sport Shop staff is also attentive to the needs of women who have experienced mastectomies and is skilled in the fitting of this specialty swimwear.

With the holidays fast approaching, customers can wrap up gift shopping early at Glenwood Hot Springs. The Sport Shop is stocked with souvenirs that range from logoed t-shirts and ball caps to mugs and towels. For extra special mementos, there is glassware hand-painted by local artist Mary Whitworth, in addition to a selection of historical books, including “Hope and Hot Water” by Angela K. Parkison and “Glenwood Hot Springs: Celebrating 125 Years” by Vicky Nash and Karin Gamba, which commemorates a major milestone in the resort’s history.
