WHAT SETS US APART
We love the convenience of online shopping as much as the next person, but we truly believe in the shopping experience we offer. We hand select every single item that comes into the store and stand by our products. Trust, honesty, and integrity are integral parts to who we are. We don’t think of ourselves as trend experts, we like to say we are lifestylists. Ultimately, we are in the business of making women feel good, because at the end of the day, style is an expression of your personality. Your style is who you are.
THE COVERED GIRLS
Stacy “Staasha” Larson
The early 2000s found Stacy as the head buyer for a local boutique, “Q”. She had left the talent agency life and found her home in fashion. After fine tuning her skills and learning the ways of the business, she then decided to follow her dreams of owning her own store and opened Covered in Dinkytown in 2006. With premium denim as her main focus, it was a destination shop known for finding the perfect fit for Twin Cities women. Expanding in 2008, then moving to the Uptown location in 2009, Stacy established Covered as the best women’s boutique in Minneapolis. Stacy's style waivers from time to time, but you’ll most likely find her in a rocker tee and a topper, with the perfect jeans and booties on any given day. She loves U2 but knows every word to Dr. Dre. She focuses on clean lines and loves a more contemporary style. Staasha resides in Minneapolis with her husband, Scott and their daughter, Chloe.
Bridget "Biddy" Mastroianni
Chief of Style/Buyer
A love for clothes and shopping was Biddy’s main dish she brought to the table in 2008, and Stacy took a chance on her. From her outgoing presence on the floor to her crazy photoshopping for our old email posts, she brought a unique set of skills to Covered. She became the resident stylist shortly after joining the CG family and holds that title strong with her #WWBD albums (check out the blog). She isn’t afraid to mix patterns, rock a crop top, or wear sequins on a Tuesday. She will give you an ab workout from laughter with her self-deprecating humor and always prefers hugs over handshakes. Her style is fairly simple and functional, but always contains a surprise twist. Biddy resides in St. Louis Park with her husband Darin, their daughter Sloane, and a baby boy arriving this spring!
Megan "Mega" O’Meara
After a 5 year stint working as a rep in LA, Mega came back to her home state and settled in at Covered in 2008. She began managing the store shortly after and then managing the finances. She has been buying with Stacy for years and has a special knack for jewelery. It’s all about the details for Mega, otherwise “that’s not the email she got.” Her style is a little bit edgy and a lot bit accessorized. Even when in her swimsuit she has to have “her hoops on and her bangles on.” She has a love for all things Metallica and most things vintage which you’ll see in her rocker meets classic styling ways. Mega resides in St. Louis Park with her husband, Spencer, their 1.5 year old son, Maxwell, and their beloved yellow lab, Rookie.
