Shopping >Marigold Gateway To India
Great Find in Austin!. What a great store - it has something for everyone! While you will definitely find something here if you have an Indian theme in mind, its also the perfect place to stop by to browse for a colorful piece of clothing or something for your home that can cheer your day up. The prices are very reasonable for the quality you get and Lata is always there to help you find exactly what you want!
Beautiful shop! Beautiful energy!.
Marigold is a fabulous treasure of South Austin! Beautiful and colorful imported clothes, bags, jewelry, tapestries and vintage sari's from India. All at such reasonable prices! The open spaciousness of her shop is so inviting!
Lata, the owner, is quite helpful and attentive and can even teach you how to put on a sari. I loved it!
Her shop also hosts all kinds of events for the South Austin Community. A truly beautiful gift of a store!
We Enjoy Pilates at Marigold. My husband Jim and I have really enjoyed the Pilates Class taught by Britt Causey at Marigold. It's a very pleasant place for the class. There's plenty of room for us to spread out our mats. The store isn't open so there are no customers then. The owner Lata is very friendly, and it's fun to check out her merchandise before or after class. Britt's Pilates instruction is the best we have experienced, and she is extremely knowledgeable about the body and can modify movements for those having injuries or issues.
wonderful place for palates. Comfortable location, Lata has made this experience like working out in your own living room. Britt is an excellent instructor providing personal attention to each person in class. Great for all levels. Just so low key and comfortable a location and great workout.
Wonderful customer service...really helpful!. I loved this place! I'm going to a Bollywood party in LA next month and needed a sari. They were so helpful and even showed me step by step how to put on the sari. They have beautiful jewelry, pillow cases and anything else Indian that you can imagine. I definitely recommend checking out this place!
Awesome clothing and imports from India with friendly service!. I'd like everyone in Austin to know about this little shop on South Lamar... Owner Lata is friendly, accessible and helpful and her lovely shop has some of my favorite things - hard to find India imports. Last year I went in her shop and purchased four vintage Saris. She helped show me how a Sari is worn and was extremely helpful. This past weekend I stopped into her store again and was pleased that she has an even better selection of clothing and other beautiful items at very reasonable prices! I'm going back for more of my holiday shopping next week and I would recommend this boutique for unique, reasonably priced items.
Wonderful Experience!. I was a bit nervous to see what the prices and store would be like and was very pleasantly surprised! The shop owner was more than helpful in explaining all the different pieces of clothing and even helped my friends and I try on the beautiful fabrics all the while teaching us how to do it ourselves. She was even more generous with taking our pictures and getting the sizes we needed in the clothes we were interested in. It was a fun and great experience, you really felt as though you were in a shop in India when you walk in. The selections are wonderful and very reasonably priced. I will be going back soon I am sure! Don't forget to print off your coupon and take your camera when you go so you can have some fun pictures of yourself all dolled up Indian style!
Great customer Service!. The owner helped us drape saris on our group of three friends. She let us put on the jewelry and take a bunch of pictures for fun. It was a great girls' day out! We've always wanted to dress up in beautiful Indian clothes, and she was so nice and helpful. The prices were reasonable, although I do wish there was a larger selection of clothing. We enjoyed it a lot and plan on going back.
Visit another world right here in Austin!.
This charming shop is well named, as it really is a gateway to another world. Lata, the hospitable owner, invites you into what seems like her exotically furnished living room, where each piece has an interesting story behind it. With every visit, I've managed to learn something new about the unique culture of South Asia. The pillow cover I recently bought has made a colorful addition to my home, and I look forward to visiting the store again soon.
Pros: Textiles have multiple uses.
Cons: Visits may be habit forming.
Poem for Marigold-Gateway to India.
Yesterday, tea and conversation,
we. sitting on three sides of a desk,
around us, blooming as hollyhocks
and coreopsis, handkerchief soft
shawls, silk scarves, and Lata?s
blouses, delicate in design. She
lends us elegant grace, gentle
innocence, as petals of hibiscus are
both. She is strong as homespun
cotton thread, smooth, dedicated
to holding her ethics in her heart,
on the racks where clothes sway.
There is peace in her store, in her
conversations and questions and
delight that someone appreciates
what she has created. She calls her
place Marigold. Perhaps in honor
of all she has brought my life I shall
plant some marigolds in our backyard.
