About Marissa Collections
Marissa Collections owes its success to staying true to the original goal…commitment to helping clients develop their individual style through personalized service and extraordinary selection. Marissa Collections began in 1975 with a storefront boutique of hand selected items including clothing, jewelry, accessories and shoes which Marissa personally styled for each individual. The instant success among the small community on the Gulf of Mexico has continued over the years, emerging into a 10,000 square foot location in the Third Street South shopping district of Old Naples. Marissa Collections was destined to evolve and expanded to marissacollections.com and a second location at The Royal Poinciana Plaza in Palm Beach.
