Rosey’s opens 2nd location in the Pavilions Mall

Rosey’s Grand Opening Celebration
Pavilions Mall 16th and Tremont, 2nd level
Grand Opening celebration October 5th and 6th
10am-7:30pm

Rosey’s, a locally owned and operated boutique specializing in fashion and outrageous accessories, proudly celebrates the launch of Rosey’s second boutique, located in the Pavilions off of 16th and Tremont on the 2nd level. The grand opening celebration takes place Friday and Saturday October 5th and 6th from 10:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and will feature 25%-75% off selected items. Purchasing customers will also have a chance to win an accessory or additional savings. This event is free and open to the public.

Rosey’s is a store for women of every age. The boutique offers an array of styles and items that only Rosey Shaw could pick. As one walks in, it is impossible to miss the great colors within the store and the one of a kind items sold there. Like the clothing, she is a one of a kind and that is why her unique ability to buy clothing has made her a great success.

“I believe that you need to have power on your front to accomplish what you need on your insides. To me the world of fashion is different than it is to most people because I believe you need it to accomplish your goals. I firmly believe dress for success. People take you seriously if you’re dressed for it.” says boutique owner Rosey Shaw.

When one is shopping at Rosey’s, it is impossible to miss the tags that don the Eiffel Tower, indicating that the item was bought in Paris. She goes to Paris 3 to 4 times a year to buy items for her store such as fascinators and spring hats.

Because Rosey does not bend to the usual trends and seasonal “must haves”, her store has maintained a very eclectic, one of a kind, and special atmosphere. There are items in there not seen elsewhere, and this can be refreshing for any fashionista or woman looking to find something they like and look good in. Rosey’s is a breath of fresh air when it comes to shopping, and it is clear to see that the love she has for fashion and what she does shines through her work. Without a doubt Rosey and Rosey’s are a gift to Denver’s fashion scene. Rosey’s other location is located in the Park Meadows Mall.
