Green gardens, green style are now yours to be had at MaJe Gallery.
Green Gardens – Green Style
This beautiful mermaid garden art is just what we’re talking about for green gardens, green style. Painted steel with fused glass elements, she sits on a sturdy steel stake so you an “plant” her wherever you want. Made in Washington by Celeste. $78.
It’s time to get planting! As you plant your tomatoes, lettuce, peas, strawberries and other garden treasures, use these artistic fused glass veggie markers as garden art to mark the spot with pride. Just $15 or get 3 for $39.
These days, “green” signifies more than a color – it’s also a lifestyle. Natural fibers are a big part of that, and our newest collection from Zen Knits exemplifies that. Check it out.
Easy to wear, comfortable style makes easy elegance a snap. Our newest collection from Zen Knits is supple rayon knits that in flattering shapes and fun patterns. This top shown here is a great example, with its handkerchief hem and asymmetrical lines. It even boasts a pocket! Machine washable and great for travel, this top along with many others arrives this week! $79.
Testimony Los Angeles is our top-selling line at MaJe Gallery, and for good reasons too. Top quality fabric that’s flattering and easy to care for. What more could a girl ask for? Take the bolero we have here. The color for summer is this awesome seafoam – a shade of green that looks good on quite a few of us. And the bolero shape is excellent for those of us who are a little shorter in stature – say 5’6″ and below. Manya is 5’4″ and she has three of these in various colors. The proportions work great with us shorter types. At just $98, it’s a piece you’ll keep in your closet for years. The seafoam color brightens up the summer wardrobe. Wear it with black as shown here, or jeans, or navy, or khaki – lots of options. A simple white or ivory shell is all you need, and our bamboo tank in white is a great option.
I often get asked how to accessorize, so from time to time I offer a tutorial on how to do just that. Take the photo above, of the seafoam bolero over a white tank top and black pants. It’s a very simple outfit, and is just fine all by itself. But look what happens when you add a great piece of jewelry…
Compare the two photos above and see how the addition of the long necklace brings the three pieces (i.e. pants, top, jacket) together with ease. If you’re on the taller side of short, say 5’3″ – 5’6″, this look will be a real winner for you. This particular necklace in one-of-a-kind by Poppy Designs, with green opal stones that are a near perfect match for the seafoam color of the jacket. $115.
Are you shorter, so feel like your jewelry needs to also be shorter? Never fear! This very same necklace can be doubled around your neck and worn as shown here for a lovely effect that works great on those of us with shorter stature. $115.
Stay tuned for more new items arriving weekly by following us on Facebook!

Ideas For Mom #2 – a Great Hat

Summer is approaching! I know, it doesn’t feel like it right now, but it will be here before we know it. A fun summer hat like the Biscayne Bowler here can be a sun hat for casual, and also dress up an outfit for a garden party. It has SunGuard woven right into the fabric, which protects skin 50 times more than going without it. This hat is available in navy, red and black. It’s crushable too! $34.
Here’s another wide brim sun hat that’s made of a cotton knit, so is very soft and comfy. It lays completely flat, too, for easy transport. This hat also has SunGuard woven right into the fabric for great sun protection, since our skin cancer rates are quite high. This hat is available in sand and pale yellow. $38.
This next group of hats are similar except for the colors. The “Bali Bucket” hat is a great shape, and the fabric makes it very easy to manipulate the brim however you wish. All four styles are reversible, adjustable and crushable, making them not only good looking, but also versatile. Once again, each has SunGuard woven right into the fabric for maximum protection. $44
Here are two other color palettes it is available in:
The Bali Bucket in pink and white is SOLD OUT.

Snazzy new tops and scarves arrived this week at MaJe Gallery. Check it out.
Snazzy New Tops
The textured cotton/rayon blend tops from Color Me Cotton always sell out fast. Why? They are snazzy, flattering and comfortable. Take this black and white number for example. Three-quarter sleeves, longer in the back to cover the behind, generous in the torso to hide love handles – what more could a girl ask for? Machine washable too. $89.
Here’s the same fabric, but this time in “zinc”, a blue-ish gray that pairs beautifully with Testimony’s pocket pants in “cloud.” This top is longer in the back, with insets on the side to make room for extra weight in the middle. Full-length sleeves and a scoop neck. Very flatteringon most bodies. Come on in and try one on to see for yourself. Machine washable. $89.
This light weight linen top is great as a top, but you can also wear it like a jacket, as shown here over a white tank top. It’s longer in the back with three quarter sleeves and a lapel collar. Loose fitting, it works great for both purposes. Paired here with a white bamboo tank and the Testimony pocket pants in “cloud.” $98.
Snazzy New Scarves
Everett’s Susie Howell finds gorgeousfabrics, cuts them on the bias, then pieces them together to create uniquely beautiful scarves. Cutting them on the bias, they drape elegantly no matter how you choose to drape them on your body. These are six from a new collection of twelve. You have to come in to see the others. No two alike. Incorporating silk, lace, vintage fabrics, specialty fabrics and more, these are wearable works of art. $89. Here are three close-ups and one way to wear them.
This extra-long scarf can be worn a myriad of ways. The black, white and gray fabric make it an especial winner for the northwest wardrobe. Shown here in the “one-twist-two” technique (come in for a demo), it dresses up jeans and a T-shirt, as well as a professional wardrobe. $89. (SOLD)
Wear a lot of black? This snazzy new scarf by Susie Howell will add that splash of happy color. Mixing both warm and cool colors, it is very pleasing to the eye. The bias cut fabrics drape beautifully. One-of-a-kind, $89. Sorry, but this one sold already. Stop by to see other bright scarves by Susie Howell!
Rather than bias-cut pieces, Susie squared these off, interspersing black with soft pinks, and finishing the ends with vintage lace. Gorgeous. $68.

This week, we look at two great ways to make a subtle statement in your personal style.
Subtle Statement: Start With A Great Top
Just in from Inside Out, this new top with the “Paris” print in front, and silvery-blue super soft fabric in the sleeves and back. The straight hem will please those of you who dislike asymmetrical hems. With breathing room through the torso, it leaves a flattering appearance with exquisite drape. Machine washable, designed and made in Florida. $84.
Trying to avoid black? Then pair it, as we’ve done here, with the fabulous Testimony Pocket Pant in “cloud.” Or, perhaps you’re looking for a new, light-weight black pant with a little pizzazz.
This new pant has the great detail of shirring at the ankle. It’s narrow, but not tight, therefore it’s not a legging. Rather, the light-weight fabric drapes beautifully and comfortably, revealing a little fun at the ankle. This also looks great with the Paris top shown above. $78.
Subtle Statement: Great Jewelry
Statement jewelry never had it so good as our new collection from Colorado’s JillBeads. Here is the “Taj” necklace, with multi-colored enamels, crystals and beads. It’s 17″ – 20″ long, and turns your favorite jeans and T-shirt into a statement. At just $68, you can’t go wrong. Of course, this would look awesome at a party with a fancy dress, too.
Yes, that’s right. This is the SAME bracelet – just turn it over for a completely different color scheme. Subtle statement jewelry is a knockout with JillBeads’ great bracelets. At 7 1/2″ long, it fits most wrists perfectly. Again, statement jewelry at a great price: $49.
Make a subtle statement with this reversible necklace. It coordinates beautifully with the bracelet above, featuring the same colors and shapes. This 3-strand necklace is 1) Reversible(see both images above for colors of both sides), 2) or wear each strand individually.It’s super cool, and also a mere $68. Made in Colorado by JillBeads, it has enamels, crystals and beads to give it all the colors. 17″ long with 3″ extender.
More JillBeads selections are available in-store, so stop by to see them all, and choose the one you like best to make your Subtle Statement.

Why? They’re flattering, comfortable, made of soft fabric, wash well, and stand the test of time. Here are three Testimony jackets now available at MaJe Gallery.
Testimony jackets are noted for the simple styling details that transform a plain jacket into something understated and stylish. In the case of the Testimony shrug, the ruched sleeves are so unusual and cool. The shawl collar and rounded hem are flattering to all. Long enough in the back to cover your butt, and it even has pockets! Made of their super-soft French Terry (96% cotton, 4% spandex), it is very comfortable to wear. $148.
Among the various Testimony jackets, the Victorian has been part of the line for several years now. Why? Because it looks so good on so many figures, and can replace the staid blazer in your closet with a much more upbeat look. Now available in “dusk”, a mineral wash navy that looks like denim, the French Terry fabric is much softer and more flexible than actual denim, making it that much more comfortable to wear. $148. This is sold out at the moment, but more will be in soon. Stay tuned!
And now, for those who like a straight hem rather than rounded: the Alexis Blazer. Unusual in Testimony jackets, this has a boxier styling, which some of you have been begging for. Falling just at the hip, the simple details in front turn around for some great lines in the back. Nice pockets, and now available in “dusk”, a mineral wash navy that looks like denim. $178.

Last Chance Opportunity
We had to give you a chance to take advantage of a last opportunity to get one of Testimony’s most awesome jackets – the Long Victorian Jacket.
This statement jacket not only looks good on every body type, it is also soft and comfortable to wear. Made of French Terry (cotton with spandex), the high quality fabric lasts for many years while keeping you looking your best. As artists always do, Testimony is moving on to new styles and leaving this best-seller behind. I have a few left, so if you’ve been waiting on this one, wait no more. Available in mineral wash black, as shown in this photo. Only medium is left at MaJe, but it’s quite possible one or two more are available with the maker. Need it? Let me know and I’ll find out for you.

Spruce up spring with color splashes on your favorite black backdrop.
It’s simple and easy and doesn’t require too much thought – just black and black, or black with gray as we see here. But fight back and add some color in the form of a lovely scarf, for example! Scarves are also a perfect transition piece as we move from cold to warmer weather. Scarves keep the neck warm, making chilly days much easier to bear.
A berry red scarf with polka dots is just the thing to perk up all the gray and black in your wardrobe. This one just in from our favorite scarf gal, Birgit Moenig. Handpainted silk/rayon, this scarf goes for $58.
Or if you simply must stick to a neutral palette, add a splash of fun with this Italian knit scarf of white circles on a heather background. Charming, and just $68.
On the left is a simple top over black leggings – another common Northwest outfit choice. By adding a multi-colored scarf in complimentary hues, you achieve a more put-together style than without. This particular scarf is among the new deliveries just received from Birgit, who hand-paints silks like this so beautifully. Just $38.
Spruce up Spring on your Table
Black, white and red is a classic color combination. Linda Covey worked her magic in glass with that combo to create this sophisticated tray. Perfect for sushi, cheese and crackers, or your favorite cookies, this design is also a popular wedding gift. Four shapes and sizes available including this one for $45.
For a completely different take on that classic color combo of black, red and white, check out this new tray with coordinating cocktail fork by Celeste Stuhring. Use it for any appetizer you want, and watch the pattern emerge as the appetizers get eaten up. $42.
The simple addition of blue to the black, white and red transforms it yet again into another fun tray for your next party. Cocktail fork included, $42.
Give yourself permission to play with colors more this spring, and just see how it injects an upbeat note to your life.
