Friends, have you noticed the new pretty pink ad over to your left? It’s a new sponsor, and I absolutely could not be more delighted to welcome them!
Mabel & Zora is quite easily the cheeriest boutique in all of Portland, owned by some of the cheeriest people I know (hi, Tif and Corey!). It’s essentially like a Doris Day movie exploded, and left this fabulous little boutique in its wake. Which makes sense, since the owner is utterly obsessed with Doris and all of her happy, sunny goodness.
When you walk into the shop, the walls are painted a sunny yellow, the racks are filled with bright, color-drenched dresses from the likes of Trina Turk, Milly and Lily Pulitzer, and there’s an incredible selection of bold, happy jewelry that will make you feel it’s summer, no matter what the weather.
We Portlanders are lucky enough to shop in person, but the rest of you should know they also have a lovely online shop. True, you’ll miss out on some of the locally-crafted jewels they have in-store, but nearly everything I love in their shop is available online.
While there are everyday selections from Ella Moss, Michael Stars, House of Harlow and Seven For All Mankind, this shop really shines when it comes to pieces you just won’t find elsewhere. Their dress selection is positively legendary…if you have a summer event coming up, I can promise that the perfect dress is here waiting for you.
That last style was even designed by the shop owner, Tiffany Bean, who has just launched a collection of her own dresses. Tif has impeccable style, and I’m in love with literally everything she’s come out with so far.
All of that spring loveliness aside, I can’t leave without mentioning their sale rack, which is simply not to be missed. I’m talking Lily Pulitzer cashmere for $99 (my mom and I bought two when she was in town), and the sweetest cherry red Beth Bowley coat for half off. If only I were a size 4!
A huge thank you to Mabel & Zora for becoming our latest sponsor…please, friends, show them a little SMC love and hospitality, won’t you?
