Our Afternoon with Peacock Alley’s Mary Ella Gabler
Last week, we were honored to host the founder of one of our favorite design labels, Peacock Alley! Mary Ella Gabler joined us for a memorable afternoon of book signing and story sharing.
Uncommon Thread, Gabler’s recently launched memoir, provides an inside view of what it takes to build a luxury brand. As a women-owned business, we love this book not only for its interesting subject matter, but also as a source of inspiration. Working in an industry that requires both creativity and savvy business sense can be challenging; but looking around our beautiful shop, we can’t imagine anything more rewarding. Mary Ella Gabler is a fantastic role model for all women in the workforce, but especially for the entrepreneurs just starting this amazing roller coaster ride.
While the author chatted with our customers, we made sure to snap a few pictures.
As they mingled, our guests enthused about Peacock Alley’s sophisticated designs. Everyone agreed that the brand’s signature neutral-palette is a perfect backdrop for an injection of personal style. It should come as no surprise that no one was too busy talking to work in some serious browsing!
Gabler is just as charming and stylish as the beautiful basics she has brought to homes all over the world. It was such a treat to meet this incredible woman, and her book is a must read!
Copies of Uncommon Thread are available at the store. Call us at 866-554-7727 if you can’t visit in person. And of course, Peacock Alley's full line is available on the Bedside Manor website!
