We're pleased to announce our own exhibition schedule will continue this month when local artist Lauren Rudolph opens her show here April 27 with a reception. The evening will serve as this month's edition of "Ladies' Night: The Maria Luisa Way," too. Talk about a eventful evening! 

Stay tuned for a blast with full details of the festivities closer to the event date.

Join us for One Day Without Shoes 2013

By now, most all our customers know of our ongoing support of One Day Without Shoes, It's a day that puts the spotlight on those around the world who can't afford the very basics of life, such as shoes, and is tied to the work of TOMS, one of our best-selling shoe companies.  

This year, we plan to go barefoot  from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 16 in ML Gifts & Accessories; join us - or start your own awareness campaign. Get sponsors to donate funds as you take off the shoes and then give the funds to a local organization you support. We will continue our longstanding affiliation with The Nyack Center through our own efforts that day.

Thanks for your continued commitment to this important initiative.

Spring in full swing. Sure, the snow stayed with us a bit longer than we perhaps expected, but now we're now more than ready to embrace the season of renewal.
This month is an eventful one, with the first street fair of the season set for April 14, the Village of Nyack celebration of Earth Day on April 21 and quite a few happenings in both our shops. We're thrilled to continue our exhibition schedule with a new show opening (Lauren Rudolph) April 27, an evening that will also serve as this month's "Ladies' Night."
With Earth Day, we're renewing our commitment to respecting and honoring the earth and nature around us by reducing our carbon footprint - and hope you will, too. We're starting a re-usable tote promotion (see our SAY NO TO THE BAG page, including our pledge to stop using so many plastic bags) and really hope it catches on. Many of us are now in the routine of taking our own bags to the grocery store (... even if we sometimes have to run back to the car as we forgot to bring them in). We hope you'll get into the habit - and also the habit of using a ML Market Tote.
Read on for details on all; and keep us in mind as you begin to shop for those graduation, Mother's Day and spring birthday gifts.
We hope to see you soon, and until then, continue to follow us on Facebook and Twitter and our own blog for the latest Maria Luisa news.

Have you picked up one of our eco-friendly - and oh-so-stylish - market totes yet? We encourage you to always have one on hand, for a quick trip to the store, library or anywhere. 
They are sold for $10, a sound (and timely) investment as we celebrate Earth Day the weekend leading up to the April 21 event.
Pick up the bag beginning this month and we'll give you a $5 credit to use that day on other merchandise. Bring it back and each time in the future, we'll give you 10 cents off your bill. Bring any other bag for your purchases and we'll take 5 cents of your bill.
Of course, it's part of a broader initiative, encouraging everyone to use their own bags and cut down on waste.
Get into the routine- you'll be so glad you did.

Well, you know it's definitely spring when the Nyack street-fair season resumes. The first of the year, SpringFest, will be held, rain or shine, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 14.
We're looking forward to the day, setting up outside both stores with all kinds of new and sale merchandise, while also keeping both shops open those days.
This time, we'll also have a few featured guests. Local artists Lauren Rudolph (who will be exhibiting in our gallery space later in April; see sidebar item) and Shawna Handke (remember her fun and creative show, "WildLIFE" from December?) will be on hand throughout the day. The ladies will be giving demonstrations of their work, translating their images to textiles and other canvases.
In addition, we'll be debuting a Tyvek tote that features a new Nyack downtown scene. You know you'll want one of these destined-to-be-a-collectible item. (And again to encourage us all reducing our carbon footprint, these tote bags will also earn you a 5-cent discount each time you bring it back to shop).
Remaining street fairs for the year will be held May 19, July 14, Sept. 8 and Oct. 13.  Hope to see you there!


Keep an eye on the Maria Luisa blog later this month as Maria Luisa Whittingham will be sharing details of her upcoming trip to Peru. She's been invited there to visit with Peruvian craftspeople, see their original, handcrafted creations and explore import opportunities. It's going to be an exciting experience, one she'll planning to share with you, her preferred customers.

Maria Luisa Whittingham and her shops will again be participating in Nyack High School's annual Fashion Show, which is coming next month. Stay tuned for more details on the May 9 event.

Spring merchandise continues to arrive; we're loving what is coming in and think you will, too. In fact, we know you already are - it was great fun seeing so many women trying on skirts and tops, tunics and scarves during the March "Ladies' Night" event. If you missed, or want to see the very latest, stop by to check it all out- and to get some final savings on our cold-weather fashions.
