I would like to apply a unique CSS style to an individual item in the root level of the menu (to represent the user's "location" in the site).
While I know how to affect geometry on an individual-item basis, I can't figure out a good way to apply a unique class to the <a> tag constructed by Tigra Menu Pro on a individual item.
Any help would be appreciated.
You can use DOM inspector to take note of the unique IDs assigned to menu item elements. Knowing the ID you can apply style to individual element.

It depends on the order of the menu item in the structure. You'll clearly see the naming convention with the DOM inspector.
