This season is flying by, as summer always does. Summing up several highlights of recent times in Aspen, it’s been a busy social scene.

• Saks has a pop-up in town through July 29 at 516 E. Hyman Ave. The brand welcomed VIP press and social media guests for a visit during its store activation with a picnic at Aspen Mountain as part of your fun itinerary.

• Citizens of Humanity and Nina Kairouz de Najeau organized a luncheon in the garden of the Hotel Jerome on July 15th. The reason for the gathering was to celebrate the launch of Najeau at Humanity Aspen, located at 520 E. Hyman Ave. Rooted in age-old recipes, Najeau is an organic, non-toxic hair and scalp care system that provides a healthy routine for everyone’s scalp, follicles and hair. Kairouz and registered dietitian Lauren Cornell shared the story behind the organic hair care system and educated guests on the connection between gut and hair health.



• In late June, Aspen Vida Medi Spa at 420 W. Main St. hosted a reception to welcome Los Angeles-based cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Ava Shamban. Guests enjoyed light snacks and beverages and received curated skin care kits and an invitation for a treatment. Sherman will be at the spa for appointments throughout the summer and fall.

• And it just opened: Las Montanas, the new Tex Mex restaurant operated by McGuire Moorman Lambert Hospitality, which also owns Clark’s Oyster Bar in Aspen. It occupies the space where Jimmy’s used to be at 205 S. Mill St. above.
