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 and spending time with my boys. I have the best job on the planet because I get to buy shoes for a living and 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.

Vanessa

Marketing & Communications

Vanessa

I try to bring a creative flair to my job. 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.

Autumn

Associate Buyer

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.

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.

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!

Sydney

Social Media Strategist

Sydney

I love spending time with my family and hiking, especially in the Metroparks! My favorite brand would have to be ECCO because they're comfortable and stylish!
