Giving thanks.

We all have so much, and tomorrow the luckiest of us will be with family and friends, enjoying the bounties of love, of sharing and a memorable meal. We’re reminded of the Estonian proverb, “Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.” No matter your Thanksgiving traditions, from holding hands during grace to gobbling the meal during half time, we send our warmest thoughts and prayers. And sincere thanks for your friendship and support. Thank You.

Fur or not.

Whether you choose real or faux fur, fur stoles were a strong favorite on the runways this fall. Michael Kors matched fur stoles with knit sweater and skirt sets for a classic look. Other designers used dark caramel, deep red or tiger striped teal and black. We’re fur cleaning experts, from vintage mink to today’s modacryclic fakes.

Uggs.

Keeping classic Ugg’s soft suede clean can be a challenge. A suede brush can remove surface grime; use a damp cloth to finish. If your Uggs smell a little ugly, be sure they’re always dry after wear – crumple newspapers to absorb the damp and add baking soda to neutralize any odors. For near-miraculous cleaning and restoration, trust us with your snuggly Uggs along with all your leather and suede.

Coco’s wisdom.

“You can be gorgeous at thirty, charming at forty, and irresistible for the rest of your life.” While not as famous as Ms. Chanel, like her we’re in the business of making sure you look your best, at any age. As we all become more irresistible day by day, isn’t it reassuring to know we’re in good company?

Unbutton the buttons.

Whether your laundry or ours, unbuttoning before washing saves time when ironing, and eliminates stress on the thread holding the button in place. Zippers, on the other hand, should always be zipped to prevent damage from their exposed teeth. We always check for loose or damaged buttons – and we replace missing or broken shirt buttons at no charge.
