Inspiration Station

Mapel strives to be more than just another boutique. So much thought and integrity goes behind everything you see online and especially in the store. We also love supporting and helping local artists and designers. For this month’s Inspiration Station we want to take a moment and put the spotlight on Petula by Katie Sweeney.

You’ve walked by her tables, pulled out a sweater from her armoire, perhaps even sat on one of her chairs or benches. Each of these pieces have been reclaimed and upcycled not just for Mapel’s d├ęcor, but also for you to enjoy as your very own! The best part is – Katie is just like you – she is a Mapel Lady and we love partnering with her!

Like so many single moms, she wants the best for her four children and for her home. What started out as an affordable way to uniquely decorate her home, quickly turned into a creative outlet to financially support her family! Thus began Petula!

Everything in the store has been discovered at a 2nd hand retailer. With her creative tender-loving-care she recreates each piece into something bright, charming and one of a kind.

Her favorite piece will catch your eye as soon as you come through the door. This chair is the perfect pop of color and character and will brighten any room of the house.

These items are available in store only. Please come into Mapel and look for the Petula tag!

Autumn For Your Bottom

It’s September and we cannot contain our excitement! Time to bust out the new denim!! Did you know that here at Mapel we currently have more than two dozen styles of denim and more are on the way this fall? Why so many you may wonder? At one point or another we have all experienced jeans that just don’t quite seem to fit. Some of you may have given up on denim all together.

We feel your frustration, which is why we have chosen these three vendors: 7 For All Mankind, Joe’s, and Citizens of Humanity. 7 For All Mankind has undoubtedly revolutionized how we view, wear and buy denim today. You will fall in love with their fit, the abrasion, wash details and quality of their Premium Denim Jeans. Joe's Jeans obsess over the perfect fit for every body type. Just try a pair and you will be a believer. Citizens of Humanity apply creativity, craftsmanship and quality to each pair of their jeans. We stand by that quality and trust you too will give them your stamp of approval!

We offer several styles and washes. Skinny jeans are completely seasonless! You can wear them now with sandals or when it’s time to sport your leather boots! Colored denim is still all the rage. Check out our new colors and styles online and in the store! Worried about the length being a bit too long? No problem! Here at Mapel we also offer tailoring for just $10.00.

Whether it’s Straight Legged, Boot Legged, Skinny or Cropped, let Mapel give you hope and convince you we have the perfect fit for you!
