In these economic times combining two successful businesses to take advantage of years of experience seems to make sense. That is exactly what two local Denver women have done!

Lana Phoenix, owner of Twice as Haute, a well-known and established women’s consignment boutique located at 600 Downing Street and Evelyn Stephens, owner of, a website that specializes in selling new and pre-owned women’s designer clothing and accessories, decided to combine their extensive experience in the retail industry to bring the best selection of women’s designer ready-to-wear and accessories to the Denver market and globally on the world wide web!
Phoenix has the brick and mortar store; Stephens had the website. Both knew that discerning women today want to buy designer clothing and accessories, but are very sensitive to the limitations the current economy has brought to bear on the luxury market. Together, they offer a superb selection of women’s designer clothing and accessories at prices up to 75% below their original retail price.

Among the items offered are new and pre-owned inventory from designers such as Armani, Oscar de la Renta, Escada, Gucci, Prada, Manolo Blahnik, Chanel, St John, Rena Lange, Donna Karan, Douglas Hannett, Akris, Versace, Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren, Valentino and Jimmy Choo, among others. Ms. Phoenix and Ms. Stephens offer women an alternative to ‘shopping the sale rack’ at a store where the best values are available all day every day and customer service is paramount!

“We offer incredible values” says Stephens, whose website motto is, “One Gals Castaways are Another’s Treasures.” And treasures they are! On her site, and now at Twice as Haute, you can find both vintage and current designer clothing and accessories; many are new, with their original price tags still attached!

At Twice as Haute, the store with “labels you want at prices you love” you will also find an exceptional selection of better and designer label apparel and accessories as well as selections from bridge designers and specialty stores. Phoenix has developed an extensive client base that consigns their ‘gently worn’ designer items, and has relationships with boutiques that provide beautiful overstock. Over the past 11+ years, she has built a reputation of providing exceptional values for your wardrobe dollars with high quality inventory and outstanding customer service in a warm, friendly shopping environment.

Company Press Release

Using the Internet, Company Offers Bigger Image, Low Rates to Business Clients

Business owners can now outsource administrative and other support functions to a "Virtual Assistant" and concentrate on what matters – growing their business.

Castle Rock, CO ----November 2009 --- Kim Hamilton, a Castle Rock entrepreneur, announced the opening of Professional Business Solutions, LLC, a virtual support practice devoted to helping business owners handle administrative tasks so they can free up their time to focus on growing their business and at the same time help them save money. Using the Internet and email with other mainstay communications tools, businesses are now able to pass along the routine but important tasks without having to hire employees or temporary help.

Hamilton explains that Professional Business Solutions, LLC aids business owners by handling such tasks as administrative services, word processing, bookkeeping, database management, data entry, mailings, transcription, notary services, information/internet research, event planning, concierge, and travel, as well as managing voice and email and other day-to-day, non-core matters.

Kim Hamilton is one of a growing number of home-based "Virtual Assistants," (VA) leveraging the Internet to launch practices around the world. These professional administrative assistants represent a broad cross-section of society, including single parents, seniors, college students, people with disabilities, downsized executives, and many others with skills and expertise essential to small or large businesses.

Hamilton explains, "Virtual Assistants are the ideal staffing solution for the new breed of 'wired' business owners. Without requiring more office equipment or space, and without the hassles associated with hiring employees, Virtual Assistants offer expert support on an as-needed basis -- billing only for time-on-task. Since Virtual Assistants themselves are also business owners, they have a direct interest in making sure their clients are happy with their performance, and better understand the business arena than either employees or temps."

The business owner with a VA can have administrative needs handled "transparently," with the client unaware that the assistant is hundreds or even thousands of miles away. "Business owners can pick up the phone in their car or at the airport and delegate work to their VA in 'real time,' knowing that the work will be completed professionally and on time, and at a reasonable fee," says Hamilton.

When you work with a VA, you get a partner, not an employee. In this virtual world, your assistant can be anywhere! The wonderful benefit of a VA is the working relationship is tailored to fit your needs!
