The Story

The Journey to the Dream

  • Humble Beginnings

    Love You More found its name from a common phrase heard by owner, Julie DelPonte as a child. Julie would tell her mother "I love you" in response her mother would reply, "Love You More"

  • The Start of Something Beautiful

    Growing up in Littleton, raising her two children in Southern California Julie after 25 years returned to her hometown in the Front Range. She opened 3 small boutiques, successfully ran them for 4 years.

  • Celebrating the Legacy

    Julie today with children of her own, the phrase is still heard and said by all members of her family. Julie's mother battled breast cancer for over 20 years. Julie sitting at her side faced the harsh reality children consider upon a parent's death. Julie honors her mother's life, the kind, talented, classy, loving lady she was while celebrating a life well lived.

  • Transition to the Roaring Fork Valley

    After spending just a short time exploring the Valley, Julie was inspired to close up shop in the hustle and bustle of Denver. She desired to share her love of fashion, unique gifts/talents and her kind spirit with the good folks of the Roaring Fork Valley. Today, Julie states she now has found a "Hidden Jewel and a small Corner of Heaven”, her new "Happy Place" here in Basalt. Julie is determined to have her dream come true...A boutique of her own named "Love You More"
