Upon first visiting Park City (or like in my case, first moving here), people generally get excited about the more “epic” things to do, like mountain biking, skiing or speeding down the Alpine Coaster. Now these activities are all great and awesome, but it’s not exactly where my mind automatically goes.
I get excited about the new shopping opportunities.
So a few days ago, I decided to scope out PCMR’s Legacy Sports to see what they had to offer.
Wow. Did I hit the jackpot. I was expecting mostly Park City Mountain Resort clothing and souvenirs, but those are just the tip of the iceberg. Oakley, Patagonia, Mountain Hardwear, Ojai, Aventura, Salomon and, the section where I spent most of my time, Roxy, envelop the store, tempting me with fresh, trendy clothing options at reasonable prices. Plus, the location is really convenient.
I had to try on some of the brand new Roxy clothes displayed this week. Personally, I fell in love with the strapless dress with the stripes; a perfect piece to fit spring, summer and fall.
Then I decided to plan ahead for fall attire. I picked up a really cozy Oakley sweatshirt, and discovered how Patagonia has a wide selection of shells (I’m partial to blue). Salomon, as always, has adorable athletic attire like this pink zip-up and skirt.
So let’s talk accessories. Legacy Sports is packed full of your typical winter gear, like hats and gloves, but what about shoes or sunglasses? Oh yes, they have you covered. Seriously try to resist the amazing rack of Reef sandals or the glimmering cases of Oakley and Ray Ban shades. Go ahead. I dare you.
After talking with Christine, the retail manager and photographer for my shopping adventure, I discovered the real beauty of Legacy Sports: the clothing is always unique. Each time clothing is ordered to fill the racks, the items are completely new to the store. And as that girl who wants to find cute clothes that no one else has, “Legacy Sports” translates to “Shopping Paradise.”
If you can’t make it into Legacy Sports right this moment, don’t worry about it. Check out the online store here and load up on your PCMR essentials. Just make sure you get excited to see all the new clothing for the whole family when you visit.
My advice for your summer visit: drop your kids off at the new Adventure Zone, walk across the plaza instead of trekking up to Main Street, and shop to your heart’s content! And maybe you can find a perfect thatch fedora like I did.
