Dan

Owner

Dan

I play drums, do pottery on a potter’s wheel and like driving fast cars on racetracks. Being with my family in the outdoors; hiking, skiing, fishing, and walking my dogs all bring me joy! Stylish, colorful, and well-made women’s dress shoes evoke wonderful memories of growing up in the shoe business.

Marci

Buyer

Marci

I love spending time with my family and and if I could be anywhere other than here, besides with my family, I’d be on a tropical island soaking in the vitamin D. I enjoy colorful, comfortable shoes and wanted to do something in beauty or fashion when I was little, fitting, right?

Josh

Stock

Josh

I love sports! So much in fact, that I want to be a play-by-play announcer for an NBA team. I even would be at a Cavs game if I could be anywhere at this very moment. I think that makes me a fun person to be around and I easily make connections with others.

Lana

Lead Buyer

Lana

I love walks on the beach. I don't get to do that much. I wanted to be a doctor when I was growing up but am happy in the shoe business where I've been at Mar-Lou for over twenty years.

Mary

Floor Manager

Mary

I empathize with customers and love to have a conversation. My colleagues think I'm funny, they're wrong. I love the beach and being with my boys. My favorite style of shoes are flats.

Linda

Floor Manager

Linda

I enjoy hiking and spending time with my husband and family. I like flats, wedges, boots, I love them all!

Vanessa

Marketing & Communications

Vanessa

I try to bring a creative flair to my job. Sometimes I forget it at home. I love Florence, Italy where I lived for a short while. I prefer any shoes with a bit of heel as I'm short. My favorite shoe brand is Merrell as I find them cute, functional and comfy.

Danguole

Inventory Manager

Danguole

When I was younger I wanted to be a dentist, but now I think this is the perfect job for me! I’m meticulous, which helps me do my job well. When I’m not at work you can find me watching a good movie wearing comfortable shoes ;).

Yelena

Bookkeeper

Yelena

I love spending time with my daughter when I’m not at work, preferably on a warm, sunny beach wearing Fly London sandals!

Jane

Key Holder

Jane

I’m a very friendly, easy-going person which, in my opinion, helps me do my job, selling lots and lots of Riekers, my favorite brand! When I’m not at work I am most likely spending time with my family.

Nathan

Facilities Manager/Sales

Nathan

I’m very patient and kind, which is perfect for this position! In addition to my responsibilities for keeping Mar-Lou’s facilities running like clockwork, I love selling SAS and Ziera because they work well for almost every customer and they’re comfortable. When I’m not at work you can find me giving back to the community by volunteering.

Jen

Sales Associate

Jen

I love cute, comfy shoes – from combat boots to Mary Janes to loafers, I’ll wear anything! My favorite brands are SAS, Ziera, and Dromedaris. I can be described as fun, quirky, and passionate. I love helping people and working at Mar-Lou is great!

Rosanne

Sales Associate

Rosanne

My biggest enjoyment in life is my family so when I’m not at work I’m spending time with them or doing crafts. I think my coworkers would agree I’m always willing to listen and ready to lend a helping hand.

Autumn

Sales Associate

Autumn

If I could be anywhere in the world right now I’d be in Italy or Greece but I’m very happy at Mar-Lou now! I think I’m a good sales associate because I’m not afraid to ask questions. When you ask the right questions you find the best fitting shoe.

Betty

Content Manager

Betty

I consider myself a foodie, which means I enjoy good food! I love being in sandals, so you can probably imagine that Cleveland winters aren't going to be my friend… I think I’m a team player and flexible which is perfect for my position!

David

Sales Associate

David

When I'm not at work I enjoy listening to music and eating Thai food. My favorite shoe brand would have to be Sparry Topsiders. I would have to say I bring a positive attitude, leadership, and great energy to the Mar-Lou team, and I think my colleagues would describe me as an outgoing, team player.

Lana G

Sales Associate

Lana G

I love spending time with my family, here in Ohio or in NYC. When I'm not at work I'm most likely with my kids. I think my colleagues would say I'm a riot and I think my best quality I have to offer Mar-Lou Shoes is that I'm bilingual.
