New Bohemian Boutique on Tennyson Celebrates Femininity and Individuality

posted by:

Many would recoil at the idea of opening a boutique in Denver in the middle of a pandemic, but for Dana Ford-Buerger, this was just another roadblock for her to overcome. A black woman and mother of two, Ford-Buerger isn’t unfamiliar to life’s challenges. “I knew eventually someday, somehow I would try to own my store,” Ford-Buerger says. “I didn’t know when it was going to happen but I knew that someday it would happen.”

And last month, her dream came true. Her newest baby, as she calls it, is her weeks-old fashion boutique, Lariat. Located in Berkeley—one of Denver’s fastest-growing neighborhoods—Lariat is the manifestation of Ford-Buerger’s unconditional love for fashion, her evolving bohemian style, and a place for her to connect with the local community.

“I just wanted to create a beautiful space that I love, with things that I love, based on my style,” Ford-Buerger says. And she did just that.




Lariat is located at 4258 Tennyson Street Denver. The store is open every day with required social-distancing procedures.
