Lynn Mayo

Retail Sales Therapist

How long have you been working here?

Just shy of one year.

What inspires your personal style the most?

Non-intentional individualism. Simple (yet interesting) design, solid colors, classic lines with an occasional touch of asymmetry.  I do not tend toward the “tried too hard” look.

What is your favorite part about working with Adorn?

The overall vibe.  On any given day I walk into a beautiful retail boutique showroom with fabulous music playing and a team of individuals who work hard and have fun.  By sheer nature of this vibe, the customer(s) feel good, at ease, and have a wonderful shopping experience.

What is your favorite brand carried by Adorn? 

Sorry, I don’t have just one. With that said, however, Prairie Underground has a design aesthetic that can be very simple, yet creative.  I love Prairie.

What is your favorite current trend? How would you style it?

I love “frayed ankle” jeans.  The fray adds simple “style.”  I like to wear mine with an oversized T that I tuck into one pocket (a look that I see often now, but swear I was the trendsetter for about 5 years ago!  Then I’ll finish it off with my favorite “Free People” flats.

Which designer inspires you the most?

Armani.  And I have never met an Armani jacket that I did not fall in love with.  I also love the simple classic designs by Vince.  Many of the brands we carry at Adorn remind me of some of my favorite Vince pieces.

What fashion advice do you have for the upcoming season?

Keep it simple.  Don’t “over style.”

What is your favorite item you have ever purchased from Adorn?

Seriously?  I only get to choose one?  Then it will have to be my new Veronica M Navy Jumper.  It is simple and elegant, and it is the most comfortable piece of clothing I have ever worn.  It’s nice to have a classy piece that feels like pajamas when you’re wearing it!

Employee of the Week: Erin

Erin Roetker

Assistant Manager and Stylist at Photoshoots

How long have you been working here?

I started as an intern in September 2016.

What inspires your personal style the most?

I’m lucky enough to work in the weird and wonderful Downtown Portland and I get to see lots of eccentric street style. I find most of my personal style inspiration by what others are wearing and deciding how I can twist it into my style.

What is your favorite part about working with Adorn?

My favorite part about working for Adorn is the people! I truly love everyone that works for Adorn and am always excited to see my co-workers. I also love how many hats I am able to wear. I get to style photo shoots, help with social media and work in the stores. A plethora of wonderful experience!

What is your favorite brand carried by Adorn? 

My favorite brand Adorn carries is LACAUSA. Every design is simple yet eye catching. It is the perfect balance. It is also designed and made in Los Angeles, which is always something I support.

Top Colors for Fall

Back in March, Pantone released the color palette for Fall 2017 and now we are already planning our Fall wardrobe based around it.

Filled with brights, pastels, and dark tones, it’s everything we could have dreamed of! Colors like Shaded Spruce and Grenadine are going to be our go-to colors for Holiday parties! While Tawny Port and Butterum are going to be seen on all the different maple trees this season. We might as well incorporate them into our closet too!

We decided to pick out six of our favorites and show you how to style these trendy colors in your Fall wardrobe!


This Veronica M suede top is the perfect pop of red when paired with a sleek coat, like this Cupcakes & Cashmere one! Pair it with a simple pair of denim skinny jeans, such as the Citizens of Humanity Caras! So simple but perfect for a casual night out with friends. It would also pair perfectly with some red lipstick!

Tawny Port

Tawny port, Black Current, Purple- This color is all over our stores in various shades and we’re absolutely in love with it! The perfect color for Fall and it looks great on these new Citizens of Humanity Velveteen Pants! Pair it with a cream colored sweater, such as this one! Add some accessories like a black belt and some Leslie Francesca jewelry.

Ballet Slipper

What could be better than bundling up in a warm, fur cardigan on a chilly Fall morning? Look chic while feeling like you just rolled out of bed! Pair it with any pair of skinny jeans, we love it with these jeans! And any simple blouse or tee is perfect for underneath. We kept it simple with a black top, which is also available in cabernet.. And add some jewelry, such as these Betsy & Iya earrings!


This wool sweater is so cozy and perfect for the cold days ahead! Add an edge to your outfit (a frayed edge), with these Mothers! Some gold jewelry also pairs perfectly with Butterum!

Neutral Gray

We have so many grey pieces in the store this season, it was hard to pick one for this but you can’t go wrong with this distressed and oversized hoodie! Pair it with some classic, skinny jeans and you’re ready for a cold, yet comfortable weekend!

Shaded Spruce

A dark green, oversized sweater? What could possibly be more perfect for Fall? We love this Apricot top paired with some black Citizens of Humanity jeans.. Dress it up with a Leslie Francesca necklace and one of these LA Made scarves!.

Looking Good While Working Out

There’s no motivation like looking good while working out. That might seem backwards. Like our flaws are what get us to the gym. Reality is we feel better when we look better! And when we feel better we do more. We’re more motivated.

Which is why what we wear matters! So forget the old t-shirt and sweats. It’s time for a workout wardrobe. That makes you look as good as cardio makes you feel.


Pink Pretty & Fierce

Who says you can’t be girly and sporty? Bring on the pink! With this Le Lis sweater. It’s the only soft spot you’ll want on your body! The open back crossover makes it breezy. Just don’t forget a Niki Biki brallette. Or a M. Rena tank, for that matter! To complete the look, try All Fenix’s royal bloom leggings.


I’m Neutral For the Gym


Earth tones and yoga were meant for each other. But they aren’t exclusive, just yet! So whatever you’re doing, you have to try these pants. Hard Tail’s Father Print Leggings are long, cute and flattering! They go with just about anything. But Niki Biki does it best. With fantastically long tanks. Or the Nik Biki Semi-Racer Peephole Bralette, in black vintage. Talk about looking good while working out!


Get That Workout Style

Be an army of one. You can take on anything! And do it in something that screams you. Something like Hard Tail’s zip hoodie in linen. You can wear it anywhere. But best of all it goes great with Hard Tail’s capri leggings. Rock mix and matched patterns. In an outfit you can work hard in. Of course you’ll need a Niki Biki bralette. Their vintage colors will make you wish they were outerwear!


Looking Good While Working Out

Means you don’t have to pick just one look. Find the right pieces for you. Best of all you can mix and match your favorite items. We’ve shown you where to start. Now it’s time for you to find your workout style.

Whatever gets us to the gym, right?
