Marie Oliver is an instant mood-lifter, with vivid hues, custom prints, fine fabrics, and flattering silhouettes that make any occasion feel special; we celebrate the simple moments of each day.
Founded in 2015, we have expanded from several core styles that remain signature to our brand, to versatile pieces that fulfill a wardrobe year-round. Available in over 250 independent retail shops throughout the U.S., we are proudly based in North Carolina, where we draw inspiration from the South’s distinct sartorial and cultural traditions, and each item is crafted with a common thread: empowering women through the joy of style.
Sarah Doggett Evenson is Founder and Creative Director of Marie Oliver.
In late 2012, Sarah shifted careers to begin working with her husband Peter to fulfill their dream of launching their own business. Combining her middle name, “Marie,” with his middle name, “Oliver,” they launched a ready-to-wear brand in their hometown of Greensboro, NC that today is embraced nationally for its vibrant colors and patterns.
Together Sarah and Peter have built an artistic print archive influenced by their shared passion for travel and design. With support from a talented team, Sarah oversees all creative direction, while Peter manages Marie Oliver’s growth strategy and day-to-day operations. “We wholeheartedly respect each other and continually commit ourselves to giving each other the space we need to succeed,” says Sarah.
