Maris Collective to open at Archer Hotel

A new retail store, Maris Collective, will open underneath the Archer Hotel in downtown Napa.

Another First Street Napa tenant has been announced.

Maris Collective will debut a “lifestyle fashion retail concept” adjacent to the 183-room Archer hotel in Fall 2017.

The store will be located at the base of the hotel building, in a standalone retail storefront, said a representative from Zapolski Real Estate.

The 3,000-square-foot boutique will offer Maris Collective’s “innovative approach to retail—mixing an expertly curated selection of new and emerging brands with sought-after designer labels,” said a news release.

Maris Collective’s downtown Napa boutique—its largest store on the West Coast — will feature a special “shop within a shop” by designer James Perse, as well as a range of contemporary brands including tailored shirts by Los Angeles-based Frank & Eileen, FRAME denim, Ancient Greek Sandals and heirloom bags by Cult Gaia, said the release.

Maris Collective will bring brands to downtown Napa and the Napa Valley that locals currently must drive out of town to purchase, the release said.

“We are excited for Maris Collective to be part of the changing landscape of downtown Napa’s historic district by bringing a fresh, new fashion boutique to its residents and visitors,” said LeeAnn Sauter, CEO and founder of Maris Collective.

“The store will offer a true lifestyle experience mixing interesting and unique fashion finds with the great food and wine the region is known for.”

There are 25 Maris Collective Boutiques, 24 of them located in or adjacent to hotels. Other Maris Collective shops are located in Houston, Dallas, Orlando, Anguilla, Bahrain, Punta Mita, Los Cabos, Palm Beach, Maui, Hualali, Lanai, Ko Olina on the coast of Oahu.

Inspired by Napa Valley’s grand architecture and residences, customers will enter the store through a glass atrium with floor-to-ceiling windows and greenery.

“Featuring a vine-encrusted stone entrance hall, Maris Collective’s boutique will capture the region’s natural beauty using organic materials to create an open-air shopping environment,” said the release.

Maris Collective has also designed an iron and glass installation that will offer a rotating space for Napa Valley’s celebrated artisans and purveyors to showcase and share their work with the community, said the release.

First Street Napa is a $200 million development slated to open the first series of 45 shops and restaurants in late 2017. It is owned and managed by Zapolski Real Estate, LLC and Trademark Property Company.

The project recently announced additional retail, culinary, hospitality and creative office space tenants, including: Archer hotel, Lush, Compline Wine Bar, Silicon Valley Bank, Pacific Union International, Napa Valley Jewelers, Eiko’s Sushi, Charlie Palmer Steak and Brown Estate.
