What’s your Minnetonka story?
Lucy’s Clothing and Shoes has proudly carried Minnetonka since 2010. We live in a small, locally driven community, set against lush West Coast surroundings. The natural bohemian nature of Minnetonka is a perfect fit for our lifestyle.

What is the most popular Minnetonka style in your store?
Our most popular style remains the classic Kilty moc. Its effortless vibe can’t be beat!

Along with being the first choice for our customers, the Kilty moc remains the staff favourite as well. The supple rubber bottom and soft suede are great for wearing before, during, after work and any place in between.

How do you like to style your Minnetonka mocs?
Minnetonka mocs are incredibly versatile. We love them styled with a great pair of lived in boyfriend jeans and your softest white tee, or cozied up with a flirty floral dress and your best oversized knit sweater.

What are a few must see destinations near your store?
During the warmer months, the Sunshine Coast transforms into an outdoor playground. Whether it be paddle boarding our coastline, or hiking through any of our well loved trails (Smuggler’s Cove, Skookumchuck Narrows, Mt. Daniel to name a few) you’re sure to find your own little piece of paradise.  And your Minnetonka mocs will be right there with you, along for the ride!

Store Spotlight: Goodman’s Department Store

Goodman's Department Store owner Hayley Goodman with store manager Richard Kirk

Minnetonka Store Spotlight: Goodman’s Department Store 402 Pagosa Street Pagosa Springs, CO 81147

Goodman’s Department Store of Pagosa Springs, CO, was established in 1900 and has been family owned and operated since then.  It’s currently under the fifth generation ownership of Hayley Goodman.

Meet Hayley in our Q&A and learn more about Goodman’s Department Store of Pagosa Springs, Colorado!

What’s your Minnetonka story?
The Goodman’s legacy began 114 years ago with my great, great grandfather, David Lowenstein.  It’s been family owned and operated for five generations. We’ve proudly carried Minnetonka for four of those generations!

I’m extremely grateful to have the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of my family members, while trying my best to maintain Goodman’s historic feel. Goodman’s just wouldn’t be the same without our Pendleton Blankets, Cowboy Boots, Cowboy Hats, and Minnetonka moccasins.  I hope to make my ancestors proud and continue this legacy as long as I can!

What is the most popular Minnetonka style in your store?
The most popular styles vary based on the season.  When it’s cold, sheepskin slippers (my favorite!) are a sought-after style. Currently, the leopard mocs are extremely popular but when it warms up a bit more, sandals definitely become a favorite of our customers.

What is your favorite Minnetonka slipper style?
My favorite pair of Minnetonka slippers would be the Sheepskin mules.  You’ll rarely catch me walking around my house without them, so comfortable!

How do you like to style your Minnetonka mocs or boots?
My personal style is boho chic with a western flair.  My favorite outfit would be styling my 5-Layer Fringe Minnetonka boots with skinny jeans and a western top or Tasha Polizzi’s long Aztec print cardigan. And then accessorizing with lots of turquoise jewelry and a large, slouchy handbag or perhaps my matching Minnetonka fringe handbag!

What are a few must see destinations near your store?
A definite must see in Pagosa Springs would be our natural hot springs. In the winter our ski area, Wolf Creek, gets the most snow in Colorado so it’s worth checking out.

The beautiful San Juan River runs right through town so rafting and tubing are great activities during the summer months. Pagosa is such a magnificent area, but to me, it’s especially magical in the fall when the leaves are changing.
