Cyber Monday, that day dedicated to online holiday shopping, is officially Dec. 2 - but we are getting a jump on things. From Thanksgiving through Monday, we're making your holiday shopping easier than ever - and helping you save a bit of money along the way. Gift certificates, which can be purchased through our site, will be discounted 15%. That means a $100 gift certificate, for example, will only cost you $85. Stock up and let those you love have the fun of shopping at Maria Luisa Boutique or ML by Maria Luisa. You tell us the amount and the recipient, and we'll take care of the rest. (And go ahead, buy a few for yourself - click away from home and then come in and do your own shopping - holiday or otherwise - in person when you have the time. Clever, no?). annual tree lighting. Be sure to make Maria Luisa part of your evening, too, as we will be hosting the opening of Part II of our exhibition featuring those profiled in the Local Arts Index. We sponsor the column on Nyack News & Views - and hope you enjoy it. Back in October, we had our first group show and it was quite the success. We hope Dec. 6 - from 5 to 8 p.m. in the lower-level gallery space of ML by Maria Luisa (Gifts & Accessories) - will be just as lovely an event. See you there.

How did it already become November? Wow, the year continues to push on. And this month, the holiday season gets under way in a most unique fashion. For the first time in a very long time, as we're sure you've been hearing, Hanukkah will begin on Thanksgiving. Talk about a lot to prepare for! Well, we know you'll all be looking forward to gatherings filled with family, friends and good food and drink. And often, those gatherings include gifts (which, we admit, we kinda love). As you've hopefully seen, Maria Luisa Boutique and ML by Maria Luisa (Gifts & Accessories) are the ideal, go-to destinations when it comes to shopping for gifts. It might be a scarf or pair of earrings for a relative you'll be seeing after a long time, or a sweet treat for your sister. Maybe you need a hostess gift or a few things for your own home? We've got it covered. And, of course, don't forget our selection of fashion, footwear and all kinds of accessories - wonderfully thoughtful gifts but also great selections for your own holiday dressing needs. We know how busy the holiday season invariably becomes. We've got plenty going on in the shops - read on, both below and in the sidebar, for news and activities we have coming up. We look forward to welcoming you - and helping you select just the right thing, whether it's for yourself, your home or as a special gift. But we do also hope you'll 'book in' some time to simply savor this time of year. Treat yourself to some quiet time - and realize how much we all do have to be thankful for.

Maria Luisa and ML by Maria Luisa (Gifts & Accessories) will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. But the holiday-shopping season kicks into high gear the day after - that day so many refer to as "Black Friday" - when we officially kick off our holiday hours - open daily through Christmas Eve. Check the blog for extended hours, etc. throughout the season.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we'd like to take a moment to share the details of a special project with you. At Maria Luisa, we like to think we are a family - and that extends to not only our customers but the community as a whole.
So, when's your birthday? We're not being nosy. We have a reason for asking.
