The universe tends to work in marvelous ways pairing people and places in order for them to become friends, grow their businesses and try to make a better world together. This is the case between the incredible Elizabeth Mast’s Talulah & HESS and BuDhaGirl.
I (Jessica), personally wanted to interview Elizabeth to find out what makes her happy, what inspires her, what she sees in the future for retail and how she is the amazing merchant and editor that she is.
I was not surprised with Elizabeth’s reply to my first question: What makes Talulah & HESS unique? Elizabeth without any hesitation used the word “kindness". Then she explained: “Our core values at Talulah & HESS are about bringing people together, listening to them and finding the perfect solution for their needs within our assortments. We celebrate with our clients, we share stories, we cry with them, we sometimes just have a glass or two of champagne.” “Building long-lasting relationships is the key to being part of our community.”
Elizabeth’s approach to buying and merchandising is about using the five senses. She believes that the moment you enter Talulah & HESS you are welcomed by visual beauty, aromatic beauty, audible beauty, tactile beauty, and flavor beauty…yes, there are divine chocolates, wines, salts, spices…everything a modern goddess wants in her home.
Elizabeth believes that modern retail is about experience. Convenience is great if you are Amazon, but her clients want to know what’s the latest, the best, and the most fun, and honestly, all while having great value. You can choose a lovely hostess gift or a lavish anniversary gift. You can re-design your living room with her Architectural-Digest-like design studio, from the perfect pillow to a crazy-pretty occasional table or a great piece of art. And yes my friends, fresh flowers are available too!!! Elizabeth’s favorite: the ever-elegant white hydrangea.
It has been over four years now that BuDhaGirl is proud to be part of Talulah & HESS’ selections. Elizabeth has believed in BuDhaGirl from day one. She is a natural story-teller, so BuDhaGirl’s content resonated with her and her incredible staff. BuDhaGirl loves to be partnered with Elizabeth for she, her divine store, and her staff represent modern, curious, wise, kind, beautiful women and celebrate each and everyone’s uniqueness.
