Featured BrandsChamilia Logo

For over a year now, we’ve been proud to carry Chamilia brand jewelry in our store. If you’re not familiar with the brand, Chamilia is a collection of customizable jewelry that allows you to add design beads that complement your mood, occasion or wardrobe. Bead designs are diverse, ranging from earth-toned neutrals, Swarovski crystals, special collections, novelty, Murano glass, sterling silver, mixed and 14K gold, crystal and more.

Our Chamilia Loyalty Passport program at Alfresco Casual Living allows you to earn a free bead or bracelet with qualifying purchases. The program is ongoing until 12/31/13! Ask for a Loyalty Passport, and after nine bead purchases (for which your passport will be stamped) receive the 9th bead free (excluding gold & mixed gold), after 5 additional stamps (bead purchases), receive a FREE sterling silver or leather bracelet!!

We love to hear the stories of people who come into the store and purchase Chamilia for themselves and others. Here are some great gift ideas:

Chamilia beads are great for celebrating holidays! And since new beads are added all the time, you could add a new bead as a gift for a loved one each year—for Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Mother’s Day…you name it! It’s an easy and appreciated gift that’s fun to give and receive.

Chamilia beads are a great way to celebrate and remember life events: getting a driver’s license, making a dance or sports team, passing a big exam, making your first sale, getting Confirmed…and so many more! Make your Chamilia jewelry a personal time capsule!

Wine bead from Chamilia

A bead for the foodie in your life!


What thrills you? Are you a foodie? Do you love wine? Theater? Music? Dogs? Chamilia beads are a great way to show what you’re all about—or to let someone close to you know that you know them well!

The genius of Chamilia jewelry is that all of the beads and bracelet types are interchangeable. You can create a bracelet using the leather base that looks casual, another in sterling silver that looks elegant, or maybe a color-themed bracelet that uses beads all from a single color palette or bead type. Wear multiple Chamilia bracelets, or just a single bracelet—it’s up to you!

If you’ve been giving Chamilia beads as a gift to a friend or loved one, you can add versatility to their collection by giving them an adjustable chain necklace. They can use the chain to highlight a favorite bead or to create a customized piece that fits an occasion.

There are so many other great reasons to give Chamilia or purchase it for yourself. We’ve even had some people purchase beads to commemorate a loved one or reward themselves for a sobriety anniversary! And the price is right—starting at just $25 and up. Go ahead—create something lasting and unique!

Alfresco is 10 Years Old this month!

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

As I think about the past 10 years, and the struggles with the economy the last 4 or more – I’m truly grateful that I am still in business – and that I still love what I do! I think the most amazing thing to me, is to still have people who make an effort to let me know that they love my shop! After all this time – those words are still magic to my ears!
I have lots of things planned for the month! Every Saturday afternoon beginning September 8th, we’ll feature Stonewall Kitchen Gourmet Products & Recipes with former Savories owner Kristin Klemetsrud, now of the Community Kitchen! The recipes & samples are free – but we a free will donation to the Community Kitchen is most welcome! This wonderful non-profit provides healthy breakfasts on Tuesdays & Thursdays using local produce as much as possible!

For our Stillwater Ladies Night Out, Thursday September 13th, we will have Midwest/CBK designer Nancy Malay in the shop discussing her designs that are inspired by vintage toys. We will have some of her Halloween & Holiday pieces from Midwest for sale as well! See the link on the sidebar for more information on Nancy! We will be serving samples & treats and will have several door prizes as well!
