Maryville Gift Boutique
A classic leather tote is ALWAYS a great choice. Especially one from a globally conscious company who empowers women and restores dignity. Come shop all of our leather totes from fashionABLE. Below is there story and why we love this company so much!
In Ethiopia, Barrett Ward saw firsthand how poverty forced young women into prostitution. This has been going on for generations. They are doing this to suppor themselves and their families.
The goal was to provide an alternative that would give these women an opportunity to earn a living. All while empowering them to end the cycle of poverty that kept them trapped. Ward armed himself with studies. These illustrated how the employment of women benefits and strengthens the entire community. The ABLE team set out on a mission to end generational poverty, one job at a time.
ABLE started as a single collection of hand-woven scarves, Because of your support, it is now a one stop shop. It is ethical fashion offering leather goods, handmade jewelry, denim, clothing and footwear. You item might have come from Ethiopia, Mexico, Peru, or at our headquarters in Nashville, TN. All items have one thing in common. They are all made by woman. That is leading us a step closer to the end of generational poverty.
We are working each day to give opportunity to women in a safe and healthy environment. As always, we are encouraging our peers to do the same. This is all done with your help.
We want you to know the true impact of what you buy. That can only happen with radical and disruptive transparency
That’s why we decided to be the first company that we know of to publish our wages. It is the lowest wages of our workers, not the average. We do believe in protecting and investing in women. Women will heal the world, and we want to empower consumers to have a quick and easy choice to demand change.
Only 2% of fashion workers make a wage that meets their basic needs. What if brands absorbed the cost of bringing workers to a living wage? It would only cost between 1-3% of the cost of the garment. When you put it that way, it doesn’t feel so insurmountable. A radical shift can happen in the fashion industry if consumer demand pushes for it.
Dandy Lions brings fall to Maryville, and we could not be more excited to share! Today as we feel the breezy air and unload some of our new shipments, we can’t help but be eager beavers for fall-time just around the corner! Some of the most memorable and coziest moments in life happen during this time of year, and Dandy Lions wants to help you make the most of your season.
Dandy Lions brings Fall to your home
Seasonal nesting creates a feeling of peace, contentment, and happiness. Neutral spaces with pops of color are especially charming as the contrast reveals the perfect mix of clean and vibrant. Personal style extends past what you wear; personal style is a piece of your home, too. If you are a festive person, you will want to decorate with the seasons and show off your creative side!
A Home Should Always Be Two Things: Fresh & Fabulous
This year Dandy Lions has brought in some seriously awesome fall pieces! One thing we love is a beautiful wreath. A wreath is like makeup – it sets the tone for the whole house! Your body and your home is your temple, and you must decorate it.
Another decorative piece that can put your home into a total fall frenzy is our mini pumpkin placeholders! These baby pumpkins give us total PSL feelings. I mean, what better way to cozy up for the season than with a PSL, blanket, and complete fall decor in your home?
Come by Dandy Lions and shop all your Fall with us!
What Does Nesting Mean?
“Nesting” in the home describes our inner desire to make our home our own, utilizing creative personal style and design ideas. Dandy Lions believes that every home should feel like a cozy retreat that has been carefully designed one piece at a time. We incorporate antique trinkets to add depth and character to spaces. Nesting can range anything from funky, colorful furniture accent pieces to a small, vintage candle lingering in the corner. At Dandy Lions, we believe in the subtleties in life and design. We believe our ability to nest and incorporate a personal touch into our spaces matters.

Showcase while Storing:
Group sets of items you’ve hoarded collected to show them off—and save space along the way. Stack coffee table books and back issues of magazines. Use mason jars and glass vases to display petite trinkets.
Pay Attention to the Walls
Frame pictures and hang scarves or a colorful hat or two.
Engage the Other Senses
Light a candle! Dandy Lions carries a wide array of candles to choose from. Pick one that has a scent that sets the tone of the room you are working within! Keep prettily wrapped candies in an intricate statement bowl on your dining room or kitchen table.
