Fourth of July Hours

A La Folie will be open on July 4th!

Join us at the store from 11am - 3pm before heading to your Independence Day festivities!

Get Into the Swing of Summer!

It's finally feeling like summer in the Bay Area! I don't know about you, but I've spent my weekends lounging out in the park, coating my shoulders in sunshine and downing champagne and oysters with friends. Even though I've been donning my favorite summer dresses for quite some time now (albeit with leggings because of this year's extended winter chill), it's now official: It's finally time to break out our prettiest pieces, and lingerie is no exception! Lucky for us, new uber-feminine summer collections from Lejaby and Aubade have arrived in store and they're suitably summery. Take a peek!

Aubade's Fleurs de Pommiers collection in Scarlet

When I hear the name "Aubade", I immediately think of balconnet bras. Aubade has spent decades perfected the sexy picture frame cut which has been even further beautified by the brand's Fleurs de Pommier collection. Fleurs de Pommier features a lovely embroidered net whose floral motifs are truly eye popping. The Balconnet begs to have its butterfly detail straps peek out from under a sexy black tank - it's the perfect piece for warm summer nights. The Fleurs de Pommier Balconnet and Tanga (pictured) are $99 and $69 respectively. We also have the matching Boyshort in stock as well ($99).

Lejaby's Serenity collection in Blue

Lejaby's Serenity collection is a totally different take on summer - it's pretty, crisp, and well, serene! Serenity is not only gorgeous, but eco-friendly! The collection is made of 93% organically grown cotton, so it's fashion you can feel good about. The molded demi is a sexy yet versatile cut whose floral embroidery whispers of flower-filled fields and jaunts down the boardwalk. The Demi and Tanga (pictured) are $95 and $45 respectively. We also have the Briefs in stock ($49).

No matter what your style we have something in store to suit your summer taste. Come on by for a fitting - we'll have you sunning yourself in style in no time!

A La Folie is Still Open!

To those of you who are inquiring, yes, A La Folie remains open! A note from Shelley:


First let me assure everyone that A La Folie is not closing its doors. There has simply been a changing of the guard at A La Folie! For those of you who have not met me, my name is Shelley and I have been a partner with Nafissa for several years. Now that Nafissa has needed to step down and take care of personal matters, I am happy to say that very little will change at the store you know and love, except for the ownership.

My passion for the lingerie business and its offerings is now a dream come true. I am committed to carrying the most beautiful fine lingerie, loungewear, jewelry, parfums and so many more objects of desire.

Outstanding customer service and attention to detail will remain our top priorities. Please stop by to say hello, introduce yourself and share with us what you are looking for and let's see how we can help.

Your continued support will be appreciated and valued, as always.

Yours truly,

Shelley Grubb
A La Folie, Owner

What's New from Marie Jo

We like to think of Marie Jo as the very fashion-forward sister of Prima Donna. Rocking sleek cuts, bright lace, sweet trims and personality to boot, Marie Jo continually surprises us with pieces that are not only beautiful, but are crafted to last. And right now we have quite the bumper crop of Marie Jo lingerie! Come sneak a peek at what's in store...

Marie Jo's Avero Demi and Bikini

The Avero collection has been one of our staples for years! The collection's classic demi works lifts beautifully and imparts exceptional cleavage. It's also convertible! Whether your need is for a regular bra, a halter or a racerback, Avero delivers with one very simple adjustment. There's a reason our customers come back for the Avero again and again, and this season, the Cosmic Blue color is an exciting wardrobe update. The Avero Demi and Bikini are $115 and $42 respectively. We also have the matching Thong ($52) and Boxer ($54).

Marie Jo's Lucas Push Up and Thong

The Lucas collection in Natural is a another sweet spin on the classic t-shirt bra. It's high-end details amp up a simple and reliable cut. The Push Up and Thong (both pictured) are $111 and $42 respectively. We also have the coordinating Bikini ($46) and Boxer ($48) in stock as well!

Marie Jo's Emmanuelle Molded Balconnet and Tanga.

Marie Jo isn't all basics though! We're crushing on the gorgeous Emmanuelle collection in Golden Brown, which features an intricate embroidered net. While the Emmanuelle is all luxury, the lovely bra is just smooth enough to wear under knit tops. The Molded Balconnet and Tanga, both pictured above, are $180 and $110 respectively.

Marie Jo's Elodie Balconnet and Thong

Marie Jo's Elodie collection in Blue Symphony is the perfect collection for summer! Featuring a beautifully printed microfiber and a sweet white lace trim, Elodie reminds us so much of a country garden! The Balconnet and Thong (pictured) are $108 and $62 respectively. We also have the coordinating Boxer ($73) in stock.

There's a lot to love about Marie Jo this summer and we know we have the perfect piece for you, so swing by for a fitting!
