Hello, from Paradise!





Down in the islands and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to tell you more about one of Madame Paulette's services: Destination Valet.

Imagine eliminating the most dreaded part of traveling--your luggage. Relax! Eliminate the hassle and anxiety of packing, baggage claim, unpacking, wrinkled clothes, packing again, unpacking, and laundry. That sentence alone just inspired me to schedule another massage!

So, how does Destination Valet work? We begin by sending you a pre-paid Fed-Ex box a few days before your departure date. All you have to do is fill up the box with what you need for your getaway, send it back to us, and relish in knowing that when you arrive at your destination, all of your clothing is waiting in your room immaculately cleaned and perfectly pressed.

Ready to head home? Wouldn’t it be nice to come home and not feel the anxiety of unpacking and cleaning your clothes? Before you depart, we’ll pick up your clothing, clean and send it back to your home. With all this free time, upload all of those vacation pictures or savor every last second before you return to the daily grind.

So, now for the real fun. Head to the comments section and guess which Island I chose to work on my tan and receive 50% off the first time you try Destination Valet!

I think it's time for another one of those umbrella drinks...

In the News!

Check out Shecky’s, as we answer some of their reader’s most asked questions! Here’s a peek below...


From stains on your favorite blouses, to desperately wanting to wear your grandmother’s wedding dress despite the numerous rips and tears, keeping your clothes in the best possible condition takes more than just laundering them.

Take the guesswork out of clothing care thanks to Madame Paulette. New York City-based Madame Paulette is renowned for their cleaning, tailoring and restoring services, working on and for some of the most reputable couture designers in the world. John Mahdessian, current owner and son of the founders, sees the potential in each and every piece Madame Paulette is given. We had the pleasure of asking John a few questions. Here’s what he had to say!
-Lynden Halpern


SHECKY’S: What’s the most important tip you could give about at-home cleaning and care for clothing?

John Mahdessian: Regarding stain removal, time is the most important element. The longer you wait to remove a stain, the more time consuming the stain removal will be.

NY Fashion Week Comes to a Close



It's been a whirlwind week for us at Madame Paulette. Not only did we attend many of the shows, we also had the opportunity to remedy many fashion emergencies.

Who had an emergency you may ask? Shhh, We don't clean and tell; however, we're feeling generous today. Without our 24/7 on-call service...

...looks from this American Fashion Icon's newest collection may not have galloped down the runway without our emergency services...

...While pieces from this design duo's Latin and South American themed collection would have looked like the models were on the losing end of an epic battle with a bottle of Elmer's glue...

...and one VIP at the showing of gowns you'll certainly see next weekend at the Oscars and maybe a Kardashian would have been forced to step out in a dress with a hem 1.5 inches too long. The horror!


Any guesses?!
