Are you ready to be inspired and travel the world!? Then now is your chance to join Yamilca Rodriguez + Louisville Bespoke for the adventure of a lifetime!
Oct 29-Nov.3, 2018!
While relaxing on a rooftop terrace, the sun is softly setting behind an old olive grove as the shadows are gently falling on the breathtakingly beautiful Atlas Mountain peaks behind you.
Lying back on a deliciously comfortable lounge, you’re drinking mint tea as the soft evening desert breeze caresses your skin while surrounded by fourteen of the most creative and amazing people you can imagine….
Where are you, you ask?
Morocco, at the Retreat Inspiration Morocco in Marrakesh, relaxing at the tribal-chic Peacock Pavilion waiting for your dinner to begin, a three-course, delicious, mouthwatering, traditional meal served by candle light, under the African stars!
Intrigued? Of course you are. Let me tell you more!
Over 5 delightful nights and 4 days, you will be inspired by Morocco and its incredible surroundings and unique design. With cultural tours and creative guides, you will immerse in an innovative program designed to be brainstorming planning and marketing your transformational destination workshop.
And the best part, everything is taken care of and we are here to help.
So why should YOU join us?
Simple, this is the PERFECT environment to create an inspired vision and plan your 2019 goals.
Collaborate with like minded women.
We want to ensure that the women who are on this retreat are ready for rapid change and are willing and able to be a part of a supportive group of like-minded business women.
We’re taking the full 3 days to deliver you the ultimate retreat where you are transported into luxurious surroundings, with everything taken care of, so you have the space and freedom to connect with your purpose and be guided to clarity.
We’ve created the exact advanced retreat that we ourselves wish existed – and if you’ve been craving a transformational experience for your own life story, this is your chance.
We have extremely limited spots, so sign up quickly!
The Retreat Inspiration Morocco is JUST what you’ve been looking for to get the help you need to make it happen!
Plus we’ll be exploring the fabulous city of Marrakesh, eating incredibly delicious food, and availing ourselves of some of the most body-melting spa services!
Morocco – bordering the Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea – evokes images of souks and medieval maze-like streets, stretches of empty beaches, and stark deserts and mountains touched by Berber, Arabian and European influences.
We’ll be spending five fabulous nights in the beautiful city of Marrakesh enjoying the wonderful culture, food, shopping, and the glamorous decor of the fabulous Peacock Pavilion.
Our chic boutique hotel was designed and built by blogger and designer, Maryam Montague, and her American husband, Chris Redecke.
Maryam’s been writing for Travel & Leisure Magazine as their local Marrakesh expert and currently has around 35 stories live on their site featuring her fabulous recommendations on where to shop, spa, dine, and go in the mysterious Red City!
Maryam’s an incredible resource and has been featured in a multitude of magazines not only for her advice and fabulous place – but because of her non-profit project, Project Soar (which we will be contributing to), and for her gorgeous online boutique, the Red Thread Souk (if you look you’ll be in there dreaming for hours!).
Every corner has been decorated with her funky and fun aesthetic and there’s no way you’re going home without a piece of Morocco – whether it’s a beautiful lamp, textiles, a pouf, a carpet, silver jewelry pieces, or leather goods.
Let’s get this straight right from the start – there’s no processed food at Peacock Pavilion – only delicious homemade food using the freshest and organically grown resources.
The breads are baked fresh daily in the village’s communal oven, and dinners are slow, multi-course relaxing affairs with candlelight and magic.
If you don’t eat this or that – no worries – they are happy to accommodate any of your food preferences.
As if the above adventures were not enough to make you swoon – how about we indulge in traditional Hammam at Les Bains de Marrakech?
The Moroccan Hammam is a place where locals go to socialize, relax and meet one another, but also to get scrubbed within an inch of their lives!
Be prepared to open your pores and be scrubbed with an exfoliating glove and savon noir soap (their black soap made from olive oil). Slather on a little argon oil afterwards and you’ll leave feeling scrubbed clean, fresh, shiny, intensely relaxed and totally refreshed! Ahhhhh……
And don’t forget to treat yourself to Les Bains de Marrakech home products and take home their delicately perfumed candles (they make lovely holiday gifts), their home perfumes, and face and body crèmes.
And we can’t forget a tour of the highlights of the city with our trusty guide exploring the old medina souks for djellaba robes, spices, babouches (Moroccan slippers), old carpets and colorful ceramics, perhaps visiting the old ruins of the El Badi Palace, or the stunning Bahia Palace (which truly is an architectural wonder).
I’m not sure exactly what we’ll be seeing yet – it all depends on our mood and our guide. And yup – don’t worry, you’ll also have some time to do your own shopping if you need some extra retail therapy!
No Moroccan retreat can be complete without a VIP party, and no party can be without Peacock Pavilion’s scrumptious artisanal cocktails and hors d’oeuvres – just in case we get a bit peckish before dinner!
So what kind of party is this?
It’s a henna party and we’re going to have a fabulous time being beautifully decorated!
And last of all, who could possibly pass up the opportunity to watch Casablanca on their outdoor movie screen under the Moroccan stars with hot chocolate, popcorn, and perhaps a bonfire?
Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman never looked so good!
Would THAT be worth coming to Morocco for?
I sure think so! PLUS you’ll get to pick our brains for 4 days – that in itself is priceless!

Yamilca Rodriguez career in fashion has its roots in Venezuela where, at 18 years of age, she learned to sew under the tutelage of a highly-respected seamstress. Her interest in design led to her decision to move to the United States where she graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in industrial design.
She joined Procter and Gamble’s Global Consumer Brands Division. There she led creative design-thinking and problem-solving sessions around the world. She helped teams tackle challenges from orchestrating global innovation strategies to envisioning future customer needs within a number of consumer categories, and assisted the teams in developing user experiences across multiple channels.
During her time with Procter and Gamble, she decided to create her own line of clothing. After moving to Louisville, her work as a designer inspired her to create Louisville Bespoke. “I am passionate about supporting and guiding emerging fashion designers to bring their ideas to life. As part of that initiative, Louisville Bespoke will assist them in honing their individual skills and knowledge, and will introduce them to the resources they require to make their businesses successful.”
