Denims & Diamonds is the newest retailer in downtown Lake Havasu City. Owner Tina Nicholson opened the women’s apparel shop Sept. 4.

While Western wear shoppers will appreciate the shop’s many offerings, other clothing trends are also well-represented. A wide choice of footwear includes sandals and over-the-top embellished short and tall boots. Purses and jewelry round out the store’s inventory.

“I’m still moving things in,” Nicholson said. “I had a shop – Glitz – that was 900 square feet. This store is 3,000 square feet, so I have quite a bit more room.”

Tucked away in the back of the store is a nail salon where Nicholson offers manicures and pedicures.

Denims & Diamonds is at 2039 McCulloch Blvd. It is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Call 928-680-6900 or 661-319-5080 for details.
