The look of Madewell’s store marries English sophistication with a simple, modern style. It was established in 1937, even though the brand name is now owned by popular retailer, J.Crew.
It has just been half a year since Cherry Creek Mall became Madewell’s first Colorado location, with the second location in Park Meadows Mall soon to launch.
The store in Cherry Creek looks clean — well-lit, wide spaces allow customers to walk around the store freely without the feeling of a weekend mall craze. The shelves and displays are neatly arranged. The shop looks inviting from not only the outside, with interesting window displays, but from the inside, too, with organized displays and welcoming sales associates.
What really catches the eye, though, are the rows of jeans and denim clothing. Young women will find tons of fits and cuts here, in all colors. The same goes for jean button-ups, currently a trend across the board for all designers. In fact, Madewell’s trademark is its unique and sleek denim line.
However, Madewell has a great selection of other clothing items, too. A multitude of tops and blouses will keep you coming for your casual clothing needs, matching perfectly with the denim you pick up there. No matter what season it is, Madewell is sure to give you the most up-to-date and chic.
The selection of dresses will make Madewell your go-to place for a nice cocktail dress. And because this brand’s clothes look simple, they can be worn for a walk in a park or dressed up for an evening date.
The brand also carries shoes from flat boots to high-heels in beautiful colors. Tomboys and girly girls will all find something to like about the store.
The superb quality of Madewell is what makes them shine above the rest. Denim and cotton items look and feel like they will survive much more than a single wash. The price for the items is steep, but the quality matches–after all, you get what you pay for. Generally, expect to pay $90 for a full-priced sweater and $115 for jeans.
Madewell has a lot going for it. The clothes are well-made, the shopping experience is a pleasant one, and, although the price points can be seen as extravagant, it is a store that feels right at home in Cherry Creek and Park Meadows.
