It's Hard to say Good-Bye

Our beloved team member Denise Sharpe will soon be leaving the Northeast to start the next chapter of her life, relocating to Texas. Of course, we wish her all good things in her new adventure, but we can't help but feel a bit wistful. Denise has brought something very special to Maria Luisa, both in the boutique and at ML by Maria Luisa, in her years here. You know her for her personal style. You know her for her honesty. You know her for her compassion and good ear. You know her for her always suggesting the perfect item for you to try on - or the ideal gift when you're shopping for someone special. Most of all, you know her for that infectious laugh and her wonderful spirit. It's no surprise that Denise herself wanted to share a few words with you, our preferred customers, herself, which we are proud to pass along: ***
A HEARTFELT THANK YOU & GOOD-BYE Well, the time has come to say good-bye to everyone that has made me smile during my time here. Maria Luisa is more than just a workplace, it is a family, and it is "YOU" the customers that give it soul. I've become friendly with so many of you, and I truly appreciate the love and respect you've shown, while trusting me to find the best selections with you. It has been a pleasure to work here, but more than that, it has been a privilege to have met and mixed with such nice people.
There have been great teammates that have made the job truly enjoyable, too. It's not often that you look forward to going to work, but I got to spend time with a group of friends. I'm proud to have been a player on this team. Lastly, I want to send a special thank you to Maria for the opportunity and tremendous support she's always shown. I've learned so much and certainly from the BEST.
My path is taking me to Austin, for warm weather and new beginnings. I'm not sure what the future will bring, but I know it will involve lots of fond memories. If anyone would like to stay in touch, finds themselves traveling to Austin or would like to contact me, my email is: denise.sharpe@gmail.com Love & hugs, Denise" *** We know you join us in wishing Denise the very best. Stop by, if you can, to wish her well in person before her Maria Luisa career wraps up Sept. 28. ML
