Four new local businesses join Tivoli Village

Entrepreneurship is easy as breathing for Stephanie Mitchell-Anthony, who owns more than five businesses, including her most recent, Pas De Deux, a children’s clothing store at Tivoli Village’s Market LV.

“I eat, sleep and think business,” Mitchell-Anthony said. “I love creating things, and it’s not work for me.”

Market LV, which opened in 2012, recently added four new businesses to its roster of locally owned boutiques and eateries. Market LV is a retail space with 17 storefronts of locally owned small businesses on the second floor in Tivoli Village.

“I love the uniqueness here; there’s something for everyone,” Mitchell-Anthony said of Market LV.

Pas De Deux, which debuted June 6, features a variety of children’s clothing brands for kids up to age 10, including Free Planet, Kate Quinn, Baby Biscotti and Moxie. Local designers are also on display.

“I have two daughters and I like unique fashion, which I had to shop online to get,” Mitchell-Anthony said. “I wanted to bring hard-to-find children’s fashion to Las Vegas. I’m also planning on opening an online store for teens and tweens and hopefully a second location at Town Square, so I really feel like I’m bringing it to all of Southern Nevada.”

Down the hall at Collective Souls Fine Art, owner Lois Greer offers photography from William Carr, gemstone paintings from MJ de Mesterton, whimsical artwork from C. Delle Bates and works from Mike Miller, who was an artist and illustrator for the Las Vegas Review-Journal and created the University of Nevada, Las Vegas’ mascot, Hey Reb!, in 1982.

“I’ve always had a passion for art, and when you have great art in your home, it makes you feel good,” Greer said. “I find art that I like, such as realism, photography, glass and impressionism and I collect them. I feel like I’m collecting these artist’s souls, and that’s how I came up with the name.”

Greer said she’s looking forward to the future of her business, which is barely 3 months old.

“I’ve met so many cool people on this journey,” she said. “More families are moving here and they’re getting acquainted with art. I feel like it’ll only get better.”

Next door at Dana Delgado Dance, owner Dana Delgado offers 12 dance classes a week for all ages, including private lessons, ballroom, tap, ballet, Latin and swing.

“I love kids and I love dance; I couldn’t see myself doing anything else,” she said.

“Dance is great for everyone, including families and couples because it’s a great activity to do together and it brings a lot of fun to a relationship,” she added.

Delgado said she enjoys the camaraderie among Market LV business owners.

“There’s a really friendly environment here and we’re all one instead of separate businesses,” she said.

For the past month, SprayTans has been serving up sun-kissed glows without the harmful effects.

“I tried self-tanning products, but I always came out looking like a road cone,” owner Mark Yacullo said. “I developed this product with chemists in California and the response has been great.”

Yacullo and co-owner Pamela McPherson Sanders are already looking to franchise the business.

“It seems like the logical step because we are the manufacturers, and we have the patent rights to this unique process,” Yacullo said.

Yacullo, a film production retiree, previously battled melanoma, the most common form of skin cancer but has been cancer-free for the past nine years.

“Tanning beds are carcinogenic, and for us it’s an issue of health because our clients want a glow without the risk of aging,” he said. “Anything we can do to make people look and feel better in a healthy way is a rewarding business.”
