Hi Mary Lou! You know your stuff and you helped me pay more attention when buying clothes. Shopping seemed so easy but when I take an item home and put it on, sometimes it just doesn't seem right. Now I know I can avoid such mistakes by simply taking my hair and eye color into consideration. I know I have so much more to learn, but this is a great start! Thank you for your knowledge Mary Lou! I will definitely tell my friends about you!

Mary Lou was really helpful to me. I have always hated shopping and had trouble finding things I looked good in. I knew I needed help because I didn't know which stores would have my size and the styles I liked. I also had trouble picking out colors that look good on me.
Mary Lou was very helpful. She asked me what I liked and what I didn't and asked me what I was trying to achieve with my clothes. She talked with me and explained what colors look good on me and why. She also discussed what styles of clothes would be flattering. Later she suggested a store and we met there. She had already picked out things for me to try. I found quite a few things I liked and bought them. She was super helpful in helping me decide what colors looked good and even explained some things I never understood about sizes. She really did a good job of figuring out my likes and dislikes and I learned a lot.

Mary Lou is amazing! She came highly recommended by a colleague who always looked fabulously dressed when I saw her at our NAPO-SFA chapter meetings. I asked her what her secret was – Mary Lou Manlove! Then Mary Lou did a presentation for us at a meeting and I was lucky enough to work with her prior to the presentation to be an example for her. That brief exposure to her talents led me to hiring her. She is honest but kind, offers many options and works with your personality and preferred style. I have a color wand I now carry when I go clothes shopping to ensure I find the best colors for me. She is supportive, smart and a pleasure to work with!

I was looking for help in refreshing and professionalizing my look as I finish my MBA and head out into the job market. Mary Lou created a personalized color set for me that I can take with me when shopping for clothes. She also helped me assess which things in my closet fit with my goals and which did not. Then, she went out and shopped for things I might like. All I had to do was come to her studio and try on the pieces she found -- they were great! I was amazed that she was able to find so many great items that fit me perfectly, and at a great price too. I used to dread opening my closet -- there was never anything I wanted to wear. Now, I am all set! Mary Lou made it fun and relaxed. If you are considering working with Mary Lou, don't hesitate.

So far I have met with Mary Lou twice. The first time she came to my house and checked out my closet. She pointed out the clothes that were my color and those that were not.

The next day we went shopping at the mall. Mary Lou grabbed a variety of clothes to try on. What fun!

Now I feel inspired and can finally get out of my rut. It has been a long time since I was 25 and a size 4. I also wear petites which eliminates a lot of choices that taller women have. These clothes are often boring and old lady looking.

I want to learn to dress in a fashionable way that compliments my now middle aged figure ( not so perfect body) and in a way that I feel pretty and not over the hill. With Mary Lou's help I am feeling rejuvenated and excited about myself and I am having fun.

Thanks Mary Lou!!

I met Mary Lou at a clothes swap and she offered me some quick but super effective tips on which colors work best for me. After having a phone conversation and meeting up again at another clothing swap, my wardrobe and self-esteem have been transformed. I'm now getting compliments on my eyes and face and not on my clothes. She emphasized that we want people to notice us not our clothes and selecting the right colors allows for that. I'm looking forward to working more with her in the future!

Before working with Mary Lou I was actually living in hiding. I managed to fade into the woodwork and not stand out in a crowd. That strategy no longer worked for me when I started my business and went to networking events.

At our first session, Mary Lou drew out of me so much insightful information. I heard myself say that I was ready to be seen. She provided me with a renewed appreciation of myself and a way to let "the world" see who I really am. I had no idea how significant all of this would be!

Mary Lou created a color fan for me that complements my hair, skin and eye colors. I'm finding clothes in my colors and style so I can mix and match them. I now trust that I have enough new clothes that I can begin to clean out my closet and get rid of what doesnt look good on me. I'm making a fresh new start.

This is opening up a whole new world to me and it's a lot of fun! I'm attracting my ideal clients -- women 50+ in transition -- and together were making the most of "our time to blossom"!

Dear Mary Lou, about 8 months ago I asked you to come to my home to show me how to coordinate my wardrobe, and advise me what styles and colors would best suit me. You helped me decide what to keep and what to give away. You were a tremendous help. You not only found just the right accessories and combinations to bring some of my outfits to life, or create new ones, you organized by entire closet by colors, and category (such as work, dress, casual). You were very efficient & knowledgeable. Since that time I have been using the insights I gained from you to guide my clothing choices. I found your sense of color very tasteful and the results of your advice, the combinations of style and color impressed me very much. I am sure you have made many women feel good about themselves. You made them aware of their beauty and gave them confidence to stand out and show themselves at their best. Thank you again for your valuable assistance and friendship.

I wanted to do something special to celebrate my sisters birthday so decided to have Mary Lou come and be our entertainment. And boy did we have a party. There were 8 of us and we all came away learning something about ourselves on how to feel more confident by what we chose to wear using our hair, skin and eye color. Mary Lou gives lots of tips and made my sisters birthday special. My Mom (86) enjoyed it so much she had me come over and help her sort out her closet. Mary Lou was fun and professional in her presentation. i

What I love about Mary Lou is the practical way she takes complex things apart and makes them understandable and usable. She makes color easy to understand and use.

Mary Lou draws you into being a better you. Through her classes I have learned many things: how to be viewed "powerful and with authority" or "sweet and approachable". Through color, style and even the right accessories, I am in better control of how I appear in the world.

Mary Lou Manlove is a refreshing force in today's busy, busy world. She is a very talented color and style consultant. She will work with you to determine the colors that work best for your skin, hair and personality. She can also help you with your wardrobe choices. A few years ago, I hired Mary Lou to help me to determine my colors. In addition to evaluating my skin tone, she also interviewed me to understand my lifestyle, preferences. She created a 'color fan' that to this day I use whenever I shop to avoid any purchasing mistakes! Mary Lou also holds twice-yearly clothing swaps where her clients can exchange pieces with one another, a clever and economical idea!

Working with Mary Lou is not your 80s color analysis." Mary Lou takes the time to get to know you and match your colors not just to your skin and hair and eyes, but to who you are. I love my colors and I feel like they fit me!

Mary Lou doesnt just give you a palette, she teaches you how to use it She gives guidance on colors, of course, but also clothing cuts, styles of earrings, sweaters, the works. And she will help as much as you want or need.

I showed her some problem areas in my wardrobe some skirts that I like but have nothing to wear with, and I told her I have trouble finding warm layers to go with outfits. She offered to shop for me and come back. She did that and it was wonderful!! She is far more efficient than I am, and gets better results. She is intuitive, practical, and so grounded and easy to communicate with and a pleasure to work with.

I've worked with Mary Lou for a few years now, and it's always been a delight. She understands what works for me and always pulls together a great selection of clothes for me to try on, either in the dressing room of a nearby store or in the privacy of my own home. I hate shopping, but Mary Lou makes it pretty effortless.

Mary Lou is wonderful to work with. She has delivered on her promise to help me look more credible, feel more comfortable and be more confident in everything I do.

How did she do that?

She helped me build a wardrobe with outfits for every occasion. She also taught me how to make good shopping choices based on my personal color analysis and body type. I never leave home without my personal colors fan in my purse.
I used to hate shopping for clothes, now I embrace the challenge finding just the right things for me. I don't even mind when I come home empty handed, because I know I saved tons of money by shopping with a skilled eye for success. When I do make good choices, they are usually items that I can mix and match with everything I've already built upon, so I get more outfits out of fewer choices.

The very best part about working with Mary Lou, is that I NEVER get tired of the compliments I receive when I go out looking and feeling great!

Can I just tell u that everyone needs to have this done especially if your in a business that is public facing. For me, it is helping save time, money and energy in the stores, closet coordiation and a more trusting appearance publicly. I am a hair stylist and u would think that I know it all when it comes to stylist myself, but I dont. Its nice to know that they're peopel like Mary Lou who take colors and presentation seriously. Its now 2014 and our ecomonic status is definitely on the rise and people that need to have that award willing presentation get them the job! Funny to think this concept has been around forever and everywhere u look we are reverting back to basics. I give my full recommendation to you for Mart Lou, she knows whats shes doing and does it well!

I hired MaryLou to refresh my wardrobe. The whole experience was fun. Now, I feel I can go in my closet and actually find something to put on! She actually brought me some things that fit just from my description. We hadn't even met yet! Then she brought a clothes rack and selections. I bought about 98% of the items she brought. It was fun. She is very supportive and spotted what figure pluses I have and highlighted them in the styles she brought me. I loved the experience and highly recommend her.

30 years ago, I had my "colors" done, and the consultant deemed me an "autumn" and gave me a panel of autumn color swatches. In this case, every person fell into one of 4 color categories that matched a season. MaryLou goes so far beyond this that she's in a completely different league! MaryLou spent 3 hours analyzing the colors in my hair (all the highlights and nuances), eyebrows, skin (color and texture), and eyes (even the color of the rings around my irises!) and produced an absolutely beautiful color fan that had a complete array of colors that are unique to me, not to a season. In addition, MaryLou gave me a huge amount of style coaching, which included what jewelry worked with my face shape and what clothes and accessories worked by for my body type. She showed me how to create a completely coordinated, functional wardrobe so I will never again spend good money on something I'll never wear (or wear once) or that doesn't go with anything else I own. I now feel confident when I shop (and I now enjoy rather than dread it), and when I dress, whether for work, a social event, date, or casual outing. I highly recommend MaryLou to anyone who wants to look her most polished and beautiful for every occasion, and also wants to stop making very costly buying mistakes.

Mary Lou is a color and style consultant. She is very good at helping and understanding what women want and what would work best on them. She helped find new colors to wear that I never even considered. I highly recommend Mary Lou.
