Just a gentle reminder that Mother’s Day is quickly approaching – it’s Sunday, May 10.

Treat MOM to one or a series of our 
Are you ready?

If not, we here at Maria Luisa Boutique and ML by Maria Luisa are more than ready to help with all your shopping needs.

KIORI-A Win Win gift
After all, you may be on the hunt for something special for your own mother, your mother-in-law, your daughter who’s a new mother, an older sister or favorite aunt, someone who’s always been like a mom
to you… anyone you want to help feel special on this day.

We’ve got plenty of lovely options – from fashions and footwear to handbags, totes, scarves and plenty of jewelry. Don’t forget our shops are also filled with scents, stationery, candles, furniture and decorative accessories… the list goes on and on.

This year’s Mother’s Day Shopping Event will run Saturday, May 2.

If you’ve been to our special shopping events before, this one will follow a similar format – the earlier you arrive, the more you save… The more you buy, the more you save… Are you seeing a theme?

So, here’s how it will go:

We’re opening up early – so if you arrive and make a purchase:

·      Between 9 and 9:30 a.m., you’ll save 35% off cash sales (30% off credit cards).
·      9:31 to 10 a.m., savings of 30% cash (25% credit).
·      10:01 a.m. to noon, savings of 20% cash (15% credit).
·      12:01 to 3 p.m., savings of 15% cash (10% credit).
·      3:01 to 5:30 p.m. 10% cash (5% credit).

And if you bring your own bag or skip a bag all together AND opt to receive your receipts via email – ANY time during the day – you’ll receive an additional 5% off as our way of thanking you for taking these eco-friendly steps.

Do check our Pinterest Mother's day Idea Board 
Finally – remember Nyack offers free parking until 11 a.m.,
 so there’s even more savings there!

See you Saturday, May 2.

EARTH DAY…It's more than just a day

  Earth Day is April 22.
It's a time to think about our environment - and how we all live.
It's a chance to think about becoming more active, more eco-minded.
We know how you all continue to support our "Say NO to the Bag!" initiative - and are grateful for that. Did you know that the Rockland County Legislature has adopted our SAY NOW TO THE BAG PLEDGE? Yes! W
e are optimistic that this county wide official endorsement will  expand the reach and support to Say No to the Bag.
Have you signed the pledge?
How about this month we all step it up even more?
Come to Nyack April 18 and participate in the annual Earth Day Celebration at RiverSpace on Main Street. Maria Luisa / ML team members will be among those participating in an afternoon (noon to 5 p.m.) that will feature crafts, artisans, live music and demonstrations, all carrying an environmentally friendly theme.
Maybe you've always wanted to know more about Keep Rockland Beautiful?
Now's the time.

And, as you know, many of the goods we feature in our shops have "back stories" - so many of them are created by artists and artisans, by those who follow Fair Trade practices, by those who care about their communities and global causes.
Stop in and we'll be happy to fill you in - or shop online on our site, where the ML/GL Initiative continues to raise funds for causes dear to our heart (and yours).
The shops are being filled every day with so much new merchandise you'll want to check out (while we continue to offer those last chances to shop our Winter Sale racks).
Whether you're getting ready for spring holidays, getaways or shopping for gifts, we've got you covered.
And don't forget Mother's Day - sure, it's not until May 10 - but we all know it will be here before you know it. Shop early for the best selections.
As always, continue to follow us in between these monthly newsletters through our blog posts and Facebook page.
And please do check us out on Pinterest and Instagram.
 See  you soon!  ML
