Fashion Presentation by Mariel 

At the young age of 24, Denise Kenny Snyder bought a women’s retail store in Larimer Square, then called Better Sweater, Etc. Within a few years, she transformed the store into a full-service boutique with ready to wear, evening wear, jewelry, undergarments, shoes and a bridal salon. Styling women for more than 30 years, Snyder is best known as Colorado’s original personal fashion stylist.

In a new space located in Cherry Creek, Mariel Boutique has recently reopened with a few refreshes to the store. Denise says, “We are expanding evening wear and closing bridal.” The stunning new Mariel Boutique located on the corner of 3rd and Milwaukee still features the ultimate in service and personal touches customers are so fond of.
