This year we’ll feature a different ‘Marigal’ every month, learning more about why they love Marigold, and how they contribute to the magic of our shop!
This lucky month we’re featuring one of our favorite original ‘Marigals’, Hannah!
Hannah Ten Eyck has been shopping at Marigold since our start in the late 80’s. Everyone can agree that Hannah is easily one of the best dressed women in the city! She has exquisite taste, and an extensive knowledge of layering, mixing, and matching her clothing to create her signature look. One that is TRULY unique and ALWAYS impeccable.
Marigold has been Hannah’s home away from home for many years, and she has seen us grow into the shop we are today.
Hannah first found Marigold while on an outing with her mother. “I discovered Marigold in the 80’s after my mother and I had gone on our annual Chicago shopping trip, I didn’t find much I liked.” After Hannah and her mother had lunch at Renee’s Restaurant (sadly no longer), she walked past our window displays at our previous Guilford location. Classic Marigold style caught her eye and she was instantly hooked! While Hannah fell in love with the clothing and the staff at Marigold, her mother realized how much Marigold started to mean to her daughter. “My mother always called Marigold to buy a surprise outfit or accessory for me.” Those memories and outfits Hannah will always cherish. “When Linda or Joann called to tell me Willimiene (Mother) had purchased a surprise for me, I RAN to the store. Even in the summer they reached me at 1-800-Poolside!”
Hannah has not only seen Marigold grow but also become a large part of our lives, especially when she transformed from loyal customer to one of our most dependable and hard-working Marigals! After years of being a school teacher in Pike Township, Hannah “flunked retirement” (as she loves to say) and started working for her favorite clothing store! “Marigold is a comfort zone for many reasons; shopping, SHOPPING, & many customers have turned into great friends. Everyone is always welcome. Marigold is a happy place even on the unhappy days. Sharing life experiences with customers and coworkers alike make the job a great one.”
Hannah continues to find the perfect outfit & accessory at Marigold. Some of her favorite lines include Effie’s Heart, Luuka, & Neesh. “Marigold is a comfort as mentioned with all the ladies pictured as well as our customers. I am grateful and thankful for the opportunity.”
