About Skipper & Scout
Kid’s Clothing from the sea to the mountains…
Skipper & Scout, Vail’s newest kid on the block is the place for modern kids to celebrate everything COOL about being a kid. You will find us at the crossroads of fun and function, of worldly and Colorado, and of sugar and spice and everything nice.
Owners and longtime friends, Kerry Roach, Laurie O’Connell of Perch Vail and Jill Landman Alfond of Sugarlicious Denver have curated a fresh take on children’s lifestyle, mixing fun and traditional lines together to create a playful experience for children and their parents.
Whether you are looking for unique baby gift to dressing your kids for everyday or a special occasion, we carry from newborn to size 14. Lines like Vince kids, Little Marc Jacob, Chloe, Scotch Shrunk will be shaking it up alongside fun casual lines like johnnie-O, Aviator Nation, and Pink Chicken, and Tea Collection. Plenty of children’s denim from Joe’s Jeans, DL 1961, 7 for All Mankind to Hudson’s.
O’Connell’s contemporary women’s boutique, Perch, located directly across the street, has become a must-see destination for any Vail shopping tour. Her eye for original, approachable fashion is now turned toward the younger set.
“Vail is the finest family destination, in all seasons,”, says O’Connell, “we have a variety of activities, great shopping, and incredibly talented chefs here, our visitors are educated shoppers, and we felt like Skipper & Scout would be a new and welcomed addition in the Vail Village”.
Skipper & Scout is located at the epicenter of fun and activity in Vail, in Solaris, just a snowball throw away from the skating rink, CineBistro and Bol to enhance a family friendly environment. The perfect spot to grab a baby gift, a birthday present or to leisurely spend a morning checking out the latest in children’s fashion.
Longtime Vail local, Jill Landman Alfond, owner of “Denver’s Best Candy Store”, Sugarlicious, has conjured a candy lovers’ dream, a candy assortment full of familiar favorites and many imported treats – the gummy bears will rest happily alongside Swedish Sockerbit, and the most original items like dark chocolate covered Swedish fish. The store will host “Hot Chocolate Happy Hours”, marshmallow roasts, along with candy necklace making, and other fun candy-themed activities for après-ski.
A warm, contemporary oasis awaits our visitors – crisp striped walls, clean wide-planked wood floors and playful splashes of citrus fruit color and make Skipper & Scout a comfortable spot to enjoy shopping in Vail.
