Much More than Steak and Cake

Although Madonna Inn is world renowned for its spectacular décor, and delicious dishes, it boasts incredible retail shops as well! Our Gourmet and Wine Shop offers unique home items, gifts, decadent chocolates and snacks and a wide selection of California's finest wines. Up the marble balustrade and to the right is our Gift Shop, which carries everything from Children's apparel and gifts, to post cards and Madonna Inn signature apparel and souvenirs. Adjacent to the Gift Shop is one of my favorite places in the Madonna Inn -- the Boutique. Carrying men's and women's fashions and accessories, the boutique is always my first stop for a chic 'fit. Cheri Humphrey, the boutique manager, is truly gifted when it comes to styling. Given anything from a western event to a formal wedding, she will pull a number of different pieces for me to try that are tasteful and sophisticated, yet still fun and fresh. She has an eye for clothing and is one of the best when it comes to flattering every figure.
This week we had a Joseph Ribkoff trunk show and fashion show, in which we featured local models from the county. It's so nice to see beautiful, REAL women modeling clothes rather than ultra-skinny girls who basically just serve as a walking hanger -- rather than a realistic example of what an outfit will look like. To top off the evening, there were cookies and champagne for models and viewers alike.
