In 2006 I moved to Durango, CO to pursue the finer things in life but didn’t have anywhere to shop. A year later, Blu Boutique opened its doors in its original space on College St next to Lemonhead Salon in downtown Durango. The space was tiny but I filled it with jeans and tees and worked hard to gain local trust and support.
Three years later, I was ready for some expert help and luckily found Tyana, who took over as manager of the store. By then we had outgrown our original space and found a new spot on Main Ave in the heart of historic downtown. We remodeled the store, doubled our inventory and began to extend our reach to tourists as well as locals. Mountain Blu is still in that space today and loving every minute of being part of the fabric of such a great mountain town.
In late 2016, we opened up our second location, in Cabo, MX. Our timing couldn’t have been more perfect as we found a location in the shiny new Koral center next to Cabo’s most exciting new destination, the fabulous Merkado.

We are small town fashionistas who specialize in contemporary designers and premium denim. We’re committed to the original personal shopping experience and work really hard to get it just right.

Our boutiques mix our favorite brands into an eclectic blend of wearable fashion and unique style.
Our customers are independent, stylish and amazing. They are the reason Blu exists.
Our Blu Girls
Nina Quiros is our Original Blu girl and splits her time between Baja, Mexico and Durango, Colorado. Nina’s style is like no other. As a child, Nina and her sister used to sit in their mothers closet surrounded by beautiful clothes. There they laughed, talked about the world, bickered and made plans for the future and today both her mother and sister are her style icons. Nina is adventurous, well traveled and absolutely loves shopping for clothes. One step into a Blu Boutique and you know you have hit the fashion jackpot. You will leave knowing that you have discovered the secret to a style that is uniquely all your own. Blu Boutiques are a breed of their own, and without Nina’s love of travel and her fashion upbringing no one could create a boutique quite like hers. In her spare time, Nina is a self proclaimed Adventurista and loves snowboarding, surfing and kiteboarding.
Tyayna Pagan has a special place in our hearts. She is not only the manager of Mountain Blu, but she is the glue that keeps us running smooth and happy. She is the definition of a good time and the epitome of hard work. Tyayna is full of life and her joy is contagious. She has a bold style full of bright colors and shimmering sequins. She is jewelry obsessed – she grew up with parents that are jewelry designers and married her handsome husband who owns his own jewelry store. Tyayna loves Durango and lives here raising her gorgeous sons but hopes to retire on the beaches of Hawaii one day. She loves going to the movies and having drinks with the girls. She has a customer base all her own, with woman shopping at Blu just to have Tyayna’s advise and fashion expertise. We all love her and couldn’t do it without her.
Renata was born in Guanajuato but grew up in Cabo. She is the newest addition to our team and is relishing her role as the manager of Beach Blu. As the youngest of four in a family of musicians, Renata’s first passion is singing closely followed of course by fashion, in particular designing swimsuits. Her style is a true mix of elegant hippy and modern boho. Renata loves the weather and beaches of Cabo and her beautiful baby son, Yucca rules her world. She is bright, brilliant and an invaluable part of Blu.
