Summer Saturday with Nani Nalu

Katie (manager & stylist) and Amy (stylist) are proud to be part of the Nani Nalu team. Nani Nalu means "beautiful wave".  At the boutique's only store in Colorado, located on Pearl Street's West End, they pride themselves on knowing the ins and outs of resort swimwear for all bodies. Katie notes that it's the most empowering job she's ever had because she loves helping woman feel beautiful!

A Saturday off in Boulder is a rare treat in retail! Getting to Pearl in the early hours is so surreal and beautiful! You can literally watch the walking mall go from a serene shadowy oasis to packed full of tourists, locals and street performers all enjoying the warm Colorado sunshine. While I wander I stop into my favorite gift shop on the East End, Bliss. Its the one stop shop for any gift, decor and a plethora of the BEST cards! I can spend hours in there laughing at the snarky cards.

As I make my way to the West End I stop in my favorite shops: Island Farm, Nod & Rose, and Fresh Produce to name a few. Shopping makes me work up an appetite, so I head to my favorite lunch spot, Yellow Deli! I love the whimsical hobbit-like atmosphere and they serve the best sandwiches I've ever eaten. What lunch is complete without a dessert? Le Pops is my go to for a good frozen treat with incredible flavors that change monthly. Maybe I'm a glutton for food, because next I meet friends at Bartaco for a cold beer and a couple tacos. Yum.

People watching, shopping, and good food: that's MY Downtown Boulder.

Why Downtown?

It's like stepping into a world apart from reality, whimsical and far away from chaos of the world!
