The front hall sets the tone for a company inspired by motherhood and femininity, with shades of pink and navy— the latter a nod to denim, one of Evereve’s biggest sellers.

With its offices bursting at the seams in the old Durr Ltd. Building at 44th and France, ever-expanding women’s retailer Evereve recently relocated its corporate headquarters to 6800 France Ave. S. in Edina, across the street from Southdale. It was a major undertaking, transforming the top floor of a 51-year-old office building into a modern space that feels more like a North Loop loft. “We knew we wanted a space to be cool and creative, and we wanted it to be accessible and easy and in the same hometown where we started our first store,” says founder Megan Tamte, co-CEO with her husband, Mike. The newly renovated office is occupied by 65 employees, with room to more than double that number. With 85 stores in 25 states and a robust online business, Evereve, whose trend-driven fashion targets stylish moms, employs 1,500 nationwide. The retailer is on pace to reach $110 million in revenue by October.
