<![CDATA[Madhuri Sarees - My Blog]]>Wed, 18 Oct 2017 22:25:31 -0700Weebly<![CDATA[Get the 'Skirt' on]]>Mon, 05 May 2014 05:27:11 GMThttp://madhurisarees.com/1/post/2014/05/get-the-skirt-on.htmlGet ready for summer with cotton flowy feminine skirts.  Long or Mid cotton skirts are so comfortable as well as stylish. They make you feel so feminine and are a must have this summer.

Need an inspiration? Try any of these looks. Skirts look great with a tank, tee or solid color blouse. Pair with a Belt, tribal jewelry or denim coat for different looks.  I will be getting cotton crinkle skirts (solid) colors with border in my upcoming shipment.

<![CDATA[Update!]]>Fri, 02 May 2014 19:33:26 GMThttp://madhurisarees.com/1/post/2014/05/update.htmlWow! it's a been a long time since I have updated my blog. Last year was really hectic as well as happening for me - new job, new baby, new house and also I turned 30 (gee! I still can't fathom). Madhuri Sarees was still alive though ! I managed to juggle appointments in between all the madness that was going on. Bringing up a boy in no joke!!  

This new year I have eased the appointments. I try to keep appointments during weekdays after work only. I don't prefer taking appointments during weekends - that time is only for my kids and family. I occasionally take appointments on Sunday if someone is really in need of some outfits :-) That is really minimal though. I want to setup open walk-in times at least once a couple of months so that I am more accessible - we'll see when I can set it up. the biggest challenge I have is time management!  My kids and family will always be my top priority and I do not want to compromise not having enough time for them. They grow fast! 

It's also been  3.5 years since I opened up Madhuri Sarees. Meeting people from different cultures is still the best part of opening up the business. I cherish making friends that I would not have made or met otherwise.

Here are some pics that I can share from last year.

<![CDATA[My take on the Oscars]]>Wed, 27 Feb 2013 20:11:39 GMThttp://madhurisarees.com/1/post/2013/02/my-take-on-the-oscars.htmlWhat is the fascination with us and movie stars? It's so silly but we still love being bewitched by movie stars who are beautiful, rich and famous. We are enamored by what they wear, how they look and we love judging their looks. I am here to do the same :-)

As an Indian - I was happy to spot Aparna Danna (wife of Oscar winner Mychael Danna) in a lehenga style saree. I like the color however, the stone work is so old school and garish. Her purse does not march her outfit either. She may have picked out the outfit just for the blouse :-) I do love the design (photos coutesy CNN). Kudos to her to wear an Indian outfit though !

<![CDATA[Why Madhuri Sarees!]]>Wed, 28 Mar 2012 21:06:37 GMThttp://madhurisarees.com/1/post/2012/03/first-post.htmlEveryone asks me that! And my answer is why not? The story goes like this:When I decided that I wanted to open up a business in Denver for my passion of shopping - I was at a loss on what I should name my business. I wanted a brand that reminds one of something glamorous and something catchy. I did not want to operate in either mine or my daughter's name simply because I didn't want my name to be public or branded. Plus I am a full-time software professional and wanted my career profile separate from my hobby and not to be linked in searches.

While we were shortlisting names - I blurted out Aishwarya. My husband then said why not Madhuri?

The name "Madhuri Sarees" instantly resonated with me. It's already a public name and people associate Denver with Madhuri is what I thought. I also wanted the name to be unique and googling up the name did not return any Madhuri Sarees anywhere in the world. A very practical choice - So there you go!

Madhuri Sarees is happy to celebrate 1 year in this business and serving you all!

Madhuri Sarees is proud to be a pioneer in promoting Indian Clothing business via Facebook. We were the first in Denver to start this popular trend. A lot of other women were inspired by the success and opened up their own little shops in the Denver area. Here is an excerpt from one of the emails I received.

"Just visited your website in search of your background. I am a computer engineer myself from India. I worked for the last 10 years and now will be taking time off soon, to spend with my 3 children. I commend you for taking control of your passion and making it into something bigger. I love baking and am planning to get into baking exclusive cakes.. you give me inspiration."

This is one of the best emails I have ever received. I never could imagine Madhuri Sarees to be such a success! I had started it out as a trial to see if it would even survive! I am happily surprised and thank you to all my customers. A big perk in this business is meeting people from different ethnicities. I hope to continue meeting you all and help you enjoy one of the joys that we miss being away from India - Shopping!!

I hope to continue serving you peeps.

Happy Shopping!!
