SOL: Store of Lingerie owner Jeanie Peterson talks fifteen years of underwear and atmosphere

For Jeanie Peterson and Cindy Johnson, opening SOL: Store of Lingerie was the natural combination of one sister's business savvy and the other's long-running experience in the lingerie business. And this Wednesday, August 29, the internationally-recognized Cherry Creek North boutique will celebrate fifteen years in the business with a party for its customers. In advance of the bash, Westword spoke with co-owner Jeanie Peterson about bras, the Oprah effect and how SOL has stayed successful over the last decade and a half.
