I shop there any time I need anything to do with Scotland or Ireland. They are both so very helpful and nice; it is a pleasure to do business with such caring people. I ordered and received my kilt from them, they did a special order for me for a bow tie in my family tartan (it looks great on formal night) and have bought all my accessories from them.

My wife got a beautiful wool dress, it is so light and airy, I feel I have to hold her down when she wears it. It matches the clan colors she found for the Cassady's from Ireland.

It is too bad their shop is now closed, but they still do the festivals, and can be found on the web at www.thistle-shamrock.com. Or you can call them (720) 482-1488 and they are as helpful as always.

I have shopped at the Thistle and Shamrock for years and have found them to be very helpful and professional! As far as what another reviewer said about their kilts being bad quality--that is not true. I have had my kilt from them for years, it was made in Scotland and is absolutely beautiful. I know their rental kilts are from the same company and much better quality than the ones I saw at the Denver Merchandise Mart. I love Thistle and Shamrock and will continue to give them my business!

Thistle & Shamrock breaks down when it comes to customer service. I was thinking about why my prior experiences have been so excellent and why the last two have been downright abusive, with employees giving me attitude, messing up orders, being dismissive, and even insulting my professional skills at top volume in front of clients in one case, and I think I know. In all my previous encounters, I have dealt with Sheryl except for these last two. While Sheryl is uniformly excellent and knowledgeable (and will make up for problems), I fear the others may be ruining the business by their poor attitude and utter contempt for customers. I was treated so rudely and dismissively by the other employee today and on a previous visit that I changed my mind about booking an extremely large order for a bridal party and all my Celtic goods for the upcoming season, and may change my mind about shopping there altogether. By the deserted looks of the store and multiple other negative reviews on the net, it looks like I'm far from the only one.

I had been planning on using them to rent kilts from for my wedding for over a year. The woman told me that my date was too far off for them to book (6 months) now so wait until only a few months out. I call the woman to give them a heads up on when I was planning to bring the men down there to be measured when she told me that my date was ALL BOOKED OUT!!! I am so pissed off!!! I should be on her calendar but she told me to wait and now it is too late. I also was eyeing a tiara from them. They want $120 for it. I looked online and found it at irishshop.com for half that! T&S is a rip off. I use irishshop.com or scotclans.com for anything I need.
I am now renting my kilts through Celtic Broker at the Denver Merchandise Mart. The kilts for rent are of a much higher quality and he has a variety to choose from. Unlike the T&S who only has one tartan they rent out. The cost is a little higher, but for the quality of the rental, it is worth it. The owner of the shop could not be more helpful and wonderful to work with!!! I highly reccomend the Celtic Broker for all you kilt or other celtic item needs!!!!

When I want a taste of my Scottish heritage I head for the Thistle and Shamrock. They carry a wonderful array of teas, tartan items and other things to allow me to travel back to the lands of my ancestors!
