We are in the Beaver Creek Village at our newest Young Colors store @ the covered bridge. Today we thought we get to Celebrate Valentine’s Day – as we are a couple in businesses together. We have been married for 22 yrs, almost the entire time we have been working together. We met at Messiah College in Pennsylvania. We got married and 1 month later moved to Arizona to attend grad school – at Thunderbird School of Global Management. We lived across the street from the school – our 1st home.
After Thunderbird we took a job in Guam as General Manager and Retail Manager running 8 Retail Stores – 6 Esprit Stores and 2 Toy Stores. We ran the company for Absentee owners in the South of France. That contract lasted 3 years…we then backpacked Southeast Asia for 2.5 months…it was on that trip that we went to Bali and found the ancient art process of Batik.
The Artistic process of Batik spurred us to start designing children’s clothing…we moved back to AZ and started the business in my Mother in Laws garage. We lived in AZ for 8 years – then 10 yrs ago we moved to Colorado. That was a Lifestyle move as we could run our business from anywhere.
As a couple we work well together. We each have our roles and bounce ideas and decision making together. But the key is having separate roles. Donna does the design and marketing creative. I do the Sales, manage Production and overall Strategy.
We love Kids, Love High Quality unique Products, and Love working with different cultures. We do our Production in Indonesia and Peru – and have worked with the same staff for all 17 years. We have a strong bond with people from different parts of the World. It is rewarding to get to know different people and work together.
The Retail stores are amazing – Donna and I love working in the stores as we meet Guests from all over the world. This week we are seeing guests from Bermuda, Brazil, Argentina, Ecuador, & Scotland…
Donna designs unique fabrics using the artisan art process of batik from Bali. Now available in Young Colors Beaver Creek is these fun Color Stories for Spring:
