Last Tuesday we got the chance to visit Ily | Iley boutique and I fell head over heels in love. Not only was the space incredible, but all of the merchandise they carry is unique and unlike the rest of the boutiques in Denver. They are also located in one of the best neighborhoods in Denver, Highlands. You open the door to the store, and it feels like you just stepped into a boutique in Soho, NYC, you suddenly forget that you’re in Colorado. They carry a variety of merchandise that ranges from new to vintage. Their merchandise also ranges in terms of clothing to house wear items. They feature small artists and designers in their shop, as well as well-known designers such as Jonathan Adler.
Store owners Bailey Lemak and Ilyse Mark were briefly introduced to one another at a party in Miami and immediately hit it off. They both had unique and outgoing styles, and personalities to boot. Unfortunately, the hustle and bustle of NYC, where they were both residing, did not allow them the time to nurture a budding friendship. However, several years later, they were reunited in the young and upcoming city of Denver. Both with passion for fashion, all things vintage, and the idea of an all around fabulous life style, Ily | Iley was born.
Both owners were tired of the bohemian style boutiques they were seeing pop up all over Denver. They found a niche in the market and decided to pounce on it. They love mixing the old with the new, which is why they carry vintage items as well as the in-style, brand name items.They aren’t your typical boutique, they mix the west coast with the east coast and bring you original, Denver style. The store is classy yet eclectic, it’s bold and lively. You can tell how much hard work and passion went into the process of opening the store. So much of their personality and style translates into the store, and that’s why they are loving what they’re doing.
Ily | Iley is also not just a boutique, it is a full service styling team. Both owners have a resume in personal shopping and styling. They offer their own talent and unique ability to dress someone based on an individual’s personal style. They find creative and insightful uses for garments and accessories for you to make the most out of your wardrobe. They are a one stop shop, for all your needs.
