Go Barefoot

As you probably know, we at Maria Luisa are big supporters of One Day Without Shoes, an awareness campaign that asks people to go barefoot in recognition of those around the world who can't afford shoes. Stay tuned for details of our April 16 activities - always tied to our TOMS footwear collection - but why not consider participating next month? Get sponsors, toss off the shoes and donate funds to a local organization; we here at Maria Luisa support our adopted organization, The Nyack Center. Here is a sample of A Day Without Shoes 2010, 2011 and 2012 at ML Gifts & Accessories.

Local Art Index February News

Local Arts Index We are excited to continue our sponsorship of a new column featuring local artists on Nyack News and Views. As evidenced by our ongoing support, including exhibitions in ML GIfts & Accessories, we do love and respect the arts, so we are eager to help spread the word about the wealth of talent right in our own backyard. So far, we've partnered with Nyack News and Views to introduce readers to artists including Ed Kirkland, Elaine Schloss and Peter Cheney. Each week, a new artist will share his or her story, including their inspirations. And we hope to soon announce an art show at ML Gifts & Accessories that will feature those artists who have been profiled.
