Animal Instinct…

Have you noticed the menagerie filling our shops?
Well, we won’t blame you if you didn’t.
There are no actual live animals… simply animal motifs dotting a number of items on hand.
These range from carved elephant-themed wall hangings to a baby bird landing on a soap wrapper. There’s an intense-looking cat decorating a wallet and a frog-prince holding court in our lower level home department at ML by Maria Luisa.
Take a slow walk around and you’ll see plenty more, including giraffes, zebras… we’ll let you be surprised.
Lots of gift ideas for those animal lovers on your shopping lists.

The outdoor entertaining season is well and truly here.
And at Maria Luisa Boutique and ML by Maria Luisa, we have plenty
of goods to help you make the transition to the great outdoors.
We have bowls and plates, trays and tables, cups and cookbooks – and some pretty funky roasting forks (marshmallows, anyone?).
Beach Stones
Our selections are perfect additions to your own home – or make for some unique and memorable gifts, especially for those hosts and hostesses who invite us to share their own outdoor spaces.

The warm weather has certainly put things in full bloom.
Our surroundings are filled with all kinds of seasonal flowers – and we’re loving
And this seasonal theme is also reflected in our shops – and on our website – where you’ll find us having quite a bit of fun with flowers.
There are floral prints on dresses and tunics and on scarves, bags and earrings.
And of course, floral scents are featured in our beauty products ranging from soaps to lotions and more.
We even have a gorgeous chair upholstered in a vibrant floral pattern.
Come in and see our “garden” full of options.

The road to success

It wouldn’t be a proper celebration without the thank-you note afterwards.
So we just wanted to take a moment to offer our SINCERE THANKS to all of you who supported the #mlfaves team at the 30th Women’s Distance Festival, held July 8 at Rockland Lake State Park in Congers.
It was a special day for the Maria Luisa family – not only was it another way for all of us to offer our continued support for The Center for Safety and Change (accomplished through entry fees plus our own team donation, matched by Maria Luisa) – but it was also a great way to celebrate Maria Luisa Whittingham’s 60th birthday.
That occasion was marked by the Center with a beautiful balloon bouquet, a birthday cake – and of course, a birthday serenade.
The #mlfaves team was some 80-strong – a showing that placed us second-largest in the event’s groups – and our members ran, jogged and strolled their way to completing the 5K-course in a morning filled with camaraderie and good will.
And it proved a memorable turnout – some 1,100 participants overall!! – for a most important cause.
Again, we thank you for your continued support of the causes we believe in!
