Autumn arrived – at least the calendar said it did, though those 80-degree days
earlier this month had us fooled.
Now, though, the season is really here.
You can feel it in the crisper air. You can see it in the temperatures.
And while it’s not – yet – time for the heaviest of coats, it’s not walk-out-the-door-in-a-T-shirt weather anymore. That’s for sure.
Here at Maria Luisa Boutique and ML by Maria Luisa, we’re embracing that nip in the air.
With new styles arriving all the time, we’re anticipating every step of the transition from light jacket to a little heavier jacket to oh boy, the full-on winter coat.
And we’re doing it all in our signature style.
If you like soft, we’ve got it. Bold colors, check. And same for textures and patterns of every kind.
Stop in and see what we’re showing – or, shop us online at MariaLuisaBoutique, to wear now and throughout the coming months.
Bundle up!!  ML

Autumn days have an earnest feel to them.

That nip in the air has us determined to get errands done, projects finished and yes, add plenty of fun activities to our calendars. And it seems like we’re always carrying so much on our travels.
While you know how we advocate re-usable bags here at Maria Luisa – thanks for your ongoing support of our “Say NO to the Bag” efforts – we have a batch of great new autumn-ready bags in our shops that we hope you will embrace.
We’re talking leather bags and woven totes, celebrations of embroidered hues and canvas versions far from routine.

The choices are many; come in and see which ones suit your needs – and taste. ML

Kitchen Towel

Fall gatherings are about to kick into high gear.
The Best Hostess Gifts
Sometimes you’re the host, sometimes you’re the guest.
Our furniture, home d├ęcor and home-themed gifts are at the ready if you need to feather your nest a bit – or pick up some ideal gifts.
We’ve got kitchen tools and tabletop items, cookbooks and linens – and plenty of furniture from chairs to lamps to pillows to round it all out.
Stop by. Take a look.
You may settle into one of our couches or chairs – and that’s fine.

But you know you’ll eventually have to get up! ML

Music is one of life’s great pleasures.
You might like to sit back and listen – or you might like to play.
For those who like to play (and those who’ve always wanted to), we’re integrating a collection of musical instruments from Senegal and Kenya into our mix.
Stop by and join in the song.

We love shoes and boots.
You love shoes and boots.
It’s nice how that works out…
We’re so excited to show off our latest styles, a mix representing our longtime favorite brands with a few new collections mixed in for good measure.
Heel heights vary. Materials are mixed.
You might find a workaday tie shoe that’s anything but standard – or your new favorite bootie.
Stop by and check it out.
Try on one, try on many.

We like to do the exact same thing!

So, the summer is now – officially – over.
And the weather will soon be cooperating.
We’ve been embracing fall fashions for weeks already here at Maria Luisa Boutique and ML by Maria Luisa.
Many of you have popped in to check out the new inventory – we invite all of you to come (and come again, as new fashions and accessories continue to arrive).
We’re already charmed by the annual return of autumn hues, textures and cozy shapes.
We have jeans and skinny pants, sweaters and scarves, outerwear and footwear.
Here are just a few examples; we have oh-so-many more…

 As you know, we here at Maria Luisa Boutique and ML by Maria Luisa are all about fashion – but we’re also about community.
And for nearly 30 years – since our launch in 1987 – we have supported our neighboring nonprofit organizations and their efforts, programs and outreach.
This coming weekend, we again join forces with our fellow merchants in a special shopping event designed to benefit THE NYACK CENTER, an important community resource that has been doing good for some 25 years. (As you likely know, the Center is a recipient of our ongoing support through the ML/GL initiative).
And this coming weekend, Sept. 23-25, we invite you to join us for the “Shops of South Nyack Fundraiser” for The Nyack Center.
Along with many of our fellow shops along South Broadway, we will remain open late Friday, Sept. 23, from 6 to 9 p.m. (enjoy specialty cocktails by Kris Burns of Festoon on Hudson) to kick off the event, which will continue during our regular business hours Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 24 and 25.
Present your voucher at participating stores including ours and 20% of the amount of your in-store purchases over $50 will be donated to The Nyack Center.  Vouchers are available at or through
We hope to see you – and thank you for your loyalty – and your participation in this fun event that we know will raise much-appreciated (and needed) funds for The Nyack Center.
We’re showcasing our new fall fashions and accessories, furniture and home accessories, gifts and more, so hope you’ll find plenty to catch your eye.
Listing of participants to date are:
