Because Everyone Needs an Umbrella

Friday, June 10th, 2011

We should have forecasted this when shoppers flocked to FinnStyle this spring for our Swag Deal on Marimekko umbrellas. That was a just the beginning. The Minneapolis-based retailer has launched a separate website devoted to umbrellas. Nothing but umbrellas. Ella Umbrella features more than 100 styles-and growing. Shop by brand, style, color, collection or price. For a limited time, enjoy free shipping on all orders.

The idea for Ella came out of increasing umbrella sales and what FinnStyle perceived as a hole in the market. “There wasn’t a great source for someone looking to buy an umbrella online,” says marketing director Chad Trent. “There are many retailers that offer some umbrellas, but not a wide enough selection to suit everyone’s taste.”

Almost makes you wish for rain.

FinnStylefurn Look what new fabric can do. FinnStyle saved these pieces from Dumpters – and made them modern with nothing more than Marimekko fabric. Check them out, and get design inspiration at the new FinnStyle store on Glenwood Avenue near downtown Minneapolis and International Market Square.

Another Gaviidae loss

Monday, January 4th, 2010

FinnStyle is packing up its Marimekko fabrics, Iittala vases and the like and leaving Gaviidae Common at the end of the month. The local retailer, which does 90 percent of its business online, will relocate to the same building as Designer Marketplace, 160 Glenwood Ave. N., near International Market Square. The new location will house FinnStyle's office, warehouse and store. Meanwhile, the Gaviidae store is worth one last visit for the semi-annual Marimekko sale.
