We are grateful for our customers, retail partners and supporters. What a ride these 40 years have been. When we received this letter, we immediately shared it with our team and thought you would enjoy it too!


Dear Mary Ella: I wanted to take a minute of your time to say thank you for sharing your book with us. I read the book on the plane ride over to Portugal.

The book hit all my emotions (even for an old Army guy). It was, and is, very inspirational. I like to think that Tanda and I have a relationship like you had and have once again. We also have two boys to even make the similarity more complete and they have personalities like both your sons.

A short story of my introduction to Peacock Alley sheets.

I was a Tactical Officer and Instructor at West Point as a Captain, and Tanda was a Rep with Susan Theiry. Peacock Alley gave a set of Duet Sheets to Tanda to try.

I still remember the day when I was helping her put the sheets on the bed and I was asking a bunch of questions. Now I always liked nice things and thought I was buying the best of sheets in major retail locations. Then I asked the question on how much the Duet sheets cost, my response was HOW MUCH???!!!??? I said that’s crazy and a bunch of other things.

Well I slept on them that night and was extremely impressed but said I would be only convinced after they had been washed a few times.

Well, after a few weeks on the sheets I honestly stated I would pay double for them. And to say that those DUET sheets changed my life, would be incredible understatement.

Thanks for sharing, you are a remarkable woman and have created a brand that is not only a staple in the luxury bedding industry but also sets the standard in customer relationships.

Sincerely, Neal E. Jarest,
CEO, Opulence of Southern Pines,
DUXIANA at The Mews
