Marine Layer Hearts the National Park Foundation

Don't take our word for it, check out the local label's new men's and women's tees (aka Charitees). The shirts feature custom graphics devoted to six national parks: Acadia National Park, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Grand Canyon National Park, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Mount Rainier National Park and Yosemite National Park. Fifteen dollars from the sale of each $45 style will go directly to the National Park Foundation and its efforts to enrich and preserve the parks. "This is a great project all around," says Michael Natenshon, CEO, Marine Layer. "It was an amazing design opportunity for us, our customers are getting some awesome new shirts, and we're going to make our largest Charitee donation ever to an organization we all feel a strong connection to. And, like all ML sustainable tees, these limited-edition numbers are "absurdly soft" and made in the USA. // 498 Hayes St. (Hayes Valley); 2209 Chestnut St. (Marina), marinelayer.com

Seeking a Stylist? New Shopping Service Has Your Back

It's called Allume. A brand-new on-demand personal shopping service, Allume matches women with flesh-and-blood stylists (bots be damned). After an extensive consultation (via text or email), your stylist power-shops online—including all brands/stores—just for your body, budget and style. You get a virtual look book and choose only what you want. Unlike other subscription box services, there's no surprise about what you're getting. It costs $20 per styling sesh, which you get back if you purchase something. Plus, clothing prices are never marked up. Sounds like a win-win to our shopping-loving ears. But those who hate shopping will, no doubt, be even more thrilled. The Menlo Park startup is the brainchild of CEO/founder Mauria Finley who's inspired to make the lives of women easier and more joyful. // allume.co
