Sale to benefit United Hospice of Rockland and Rockland Family Center

Join us from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Dec. 8 for a special evening at Maria Luisa Boutique.

Local jewelry designer Fatima Mariam Shabbir will unveil her latest beaded-jewelry creations.

Shabbir has been designing jewelry (along with many other works) for more than 20 years. What began as an inventive way to have the things she wanted or needed developed into an outlet for her creativity that continues to evolve.

She tells us that her inspiration comes from many sources, often based on her appreciation of color.

"Colors are something so beautiful and amazing in our lives, and I am always impressed with the fact that no matter how difficult or saddened life gets, I have always been able to take that second to admire the emerald green of a mallard's head, the beauty of a flower and the vivid cobalt blue of our sky on a clear day," she says. "These are a few of the simple beauties of our world and from these and many others I draw my inspiration."

You're sure to find something both beautiful and inspirational in her work.

Shabbir has a passion for child and family advocacy, as well as speaking up for those who cannot, leading her to support organizations such as the Rockland Family Shelter and United Hospice of Rockland. In her honor, both of these local nonprofit organizations will benefit from this special evening.

Shop and save 10 percent on your purchase, and an additional 10 percent will go towards the organization of your choice, either the Rockland Family Shelter or United Hospice of Rockland.

The evening will also include refreshments.

A donation of $20 is requested at the door.


Hope to see you there.

You are invited to a Wish List Party

As in past years, Maria Luisa Boutique and ML Gifts & Accessories will again offer a holiday wish list, and this year's program gets under way with a special evening event set from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Dec. 1.

Here's how it works:

You come in, see what you'd like from, um, Santa - and we'll keep the info on file for when the little elves come to shop for you.

So plan to stop by with some friends, enjoy a bit of wine and cheese and browse away.

We'll make it easy for you- you see what you like and tell us. Our staffers will track your selections for you.

And don't be shy - see one thing, 10 things (?) you like... add 'em to the list. You never know how generous your family or friends are feeling.

Once your list is done, we'll give you a bunch of cards to pass out to your potential shoppers so they can stop by with a pretty good idea of some ideal gifts.

And if they come to shop before Dec. 11, tell them to let a staffer know it's a "wish-list" purchase so they can enjoy 15 percent off. And just remember to act surprised when you open your treasures on the holiday!

(Oh, and one last thing to make the evening extra special - Anything you purchase during the Dec. 1 event will be yours at 15-percent off, too. That's our gift to you!)

Hope to see you there.
