  • “Astray” – A Father’s Day Poem from Steve Lucas

    Happy Father’s Day from your friends at F.M. Light & Sons! Our friend and cowboy poet Steve Lucas has sent us another of his works to share with you, this time on the subject of Father’s Day. We hope you have a relaxing and memorable day. However, if your day ends up anything like the

  • Warren Miller comes to F.M. Light & Sons

Hey there Ya'all, I used to work there way back in about 1999 taking care of the jeans section / womens areas at your store. Working there is still one of the funnest jobs I've ever had. Glad to know you are still out there selling quality in Steamboat Springs. I'll be back one day to say hello in person! Merry Christmas. Karen (Richmond) Bitely…. Bye the way the SmartWool socks I bought while I was working there are just now starting to wear out, talk about quality, and the crushable hat I bought is needing to be replaced. Hmm seems like I need to visit sooner than later – have a great New Year too!

We stopped at your store when we were in Steamboat Springs for a day last week. I bought a gorgeous sweater. You carry the styles of clothing I like and find difficult to locate in my neck of the woods. I was hoping you had an on-line store so I could make more purchases. I see your "store" tab says "coming soon". Hope it isn't to long in getting up and running.

I love your store! I went down to Steamboat from Breckenridge and I've seen all the signs on the way up there and I just couldn't wait to get to the store. I just loved everything I bought so much that later that day I went again that evening and again the next day. Just could not get enough of the store I love you guys you are the bomb. I cannot wait to go again in a couple of more weeks and do some more shopping. You have such a variety I can't say enough for the store. All I know is I found life again you all are all beautiful and the girl who helped me was sensational. I will be back again and again and again thank you so much for being there!
