Just in time for the holidays and the ski season, Elleston by Perch is open for business.

Laurie O’Connell, who opened popular women’s clothing store, Perch, in 2012 in Vail Village, opened a new concept right across the street at Solaris last weekend.

“Perch has been a wonderful addition to Vail for 11 years and we decided to open Elleston because we feel that there is a demand for higher-end women’s clothing here in Vail. Women who love Perch will also love Elleston. Moms, daughters and grandmothers can all find something,” O’Connell said.  

O’Connell and her partners Elise Gilbert and Lisa Neporent formed Elleston by Perch. O’Connell said that this store will have a more luxurious feel and have product to support that. “Look for designer clothing and accessories from brands like Stella McCartney, Marni, Proenza Schouler, Rosie Assoulin and a variety of other great designers from all over the world,” O’Connell said.
