For 40 years Mary Ella Gabler, the founder of the luxury bedding and bath products Peacock Alley has brought us indulgent and textural, yet classic and chic, bedding pieces.The Lucia matelassè collection. Classic scalloped pique with a trim color option.
What does it take to build a luxury brand? Find out in Mary Ella’s biography, Uncommon Thread – A Woman, A Brand, A Legacy. I recently picked up a copy of her new book and enjoyed reading it cover to cover in one day, and I think you will too. Mary Ella shares the risk, courage and commitment she faced while building her brand and balancing family life with two children.
I was impressed to learn Mary Ella sat for the Series 7 Exam, passed, and worked on Wall Street in the 60s, breaking the norm. You’ll find personal pictures of her family and motivational quotes, as she takes us through her life experience and the people who have shaped the fabric of her life.
The book is beautifully written. Reasonably priced, it makes a lovely gift for a birthday, hostess, or holiday gift. (Hanukkah is on Thanksgiving this year.) Click here to purchase a copy. She reminds us hard work, patience and commitment is essential to realize our dreams. Thank you Mary Ella for sharing your story.Image Credit: Peacock Alley
