Packing assistance for those who caught the travel bug.

A Line Boutique, with locations in Greenwood Village and Cherry Creek North, has quickly become a name within the fashion world. The boutique has been recognized by both Elle and Lucky Magazine and strives to provide chic but practical clothing for outdoorsy, fashion-forward women. Reaching far beyond than the standard shopping experience, A Line offers complimentary tailoring, wardrobe expertise, and even packing assistance for business travel as well as vacations. With spring and summer travel plans tantalizingly near, we talked with owner Karmen Berentsen to get the inside scoop on A Line’s packing services and some spring fashion must-haves.

Packing assistance seems like a pretty niche service! What does A Line’s packing assistance involve?

What A Line strives to provide is an EASY button. Packing assistance entails an A Line stylist coming to your house and reviewing your trip destination and itinerary with you. We review everything from the weather to planned activities. Can all of us chop a garlic clove? Sure, but it takes us ten minutes versus the 30-seconds it takes a professional chef. Styling is no different. It is a skill that our full-time, professional stylists have.

Spring is in the air! Any specific, “must-haves,” for people planning a spring trip?

One of our favorites is an Avant Toi scarf! These handmade scarves from Genoa, Italy, start with a vintage Hermès silk scarf that is then appliquéd to luxurious, hand washed, cashmere. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and truly a piece of art. It is the perfect item to always have in your travel bag, weather you are on the plane, the beach, or après ski on the mountain.

A well-made and versatile piece of footwear is another key item for travel. We currently have Pedro Garcia sandals in stock for spring! Handmade in Spain with soft leather and Swarovski crystals, these comfy shoes elevate every warm weather look and add the perfect amount of glam.
