I am pulling my hair out with the numerous css files in dnn and the Catalook store. I have everything fine except the default blue theme seems to have left a blue header and footer in all the catalook modules. (see
www.cuzushop.com for example)
Any ideas how to isolate where the blue is coming from or advice on how the numerous css files can be centralized?

You can change the blue by going to the CatalookStore/Skins/blue Folder. Wihin this folder is the CatalookStore css file where you can change the complete look and feel of all the store modules. To specifically change the 'blue', you can
modify the CATContainerHeader tag. Within this tag you will have something along these lines:
Remove that (comment it out, change the RGB value to something along the lines of #7B185A, or just change it to white), and you should be good to go.
This CSS is the repository for all CATALook skin changes 'inside' the container. It appears to be relatively centralized already.
I hope this helps! I know it took me a while to figure out what all the css tags related to on the site. Perhaps it would be helpful if CATALook published a CSS map of all their tags (since the Store is a rather large module).

Catalook uses it's own skins for the store modules. You can change it (or upload new Catalook skins) from the Store Admin module (CAT_StoreSettings I think it's called). You'll see the skin chooser / skin uploader down near the bottom of the settings page.
Other Catalook skins you might like better are "compavt-grey" or "spreadsheet-grey." They are in the "CATALooKSkinPackages" folder. I'm pretty sure you need to upload some of these to have them available as they don't go up in a PA install.
Keep in mind - new Catalook versions introduce new features, so get in the habit of updating the Catalook skins as each new version is installed. Otherwise you open your store up to some (not so)random errors.

That was the one! I could not find the css that was the source of the blue so thanks!
I am TOO damn familar with the fact that Catalook has several more ways of managing styles. The one resistence going forward with Catalook and DNN in general is insanity of numerous stylesheet scattered willy nilly and no way to figure out what is causing
a goofy color/size/font. It is amazing anyone gets any skinning done with it and my respect to those who have turned out some nice sites.
Any advice for how to get more realtime editing would be very much appreciated - development setup, where to centralize skins, etc.
Back to trial and error changes...
