We at Sandpipers love being your destination for all things swim, resort, and lounge, and now we’ve added sleep wear to that list with the brand that’s on everyone's lips! Eberjey!
Founded in 1996, by friends Ali Mejia and Mariela Rovito, the Eberjey brand was born to fill a gap in the lingerie market between the overtly sexy styles of the era and those go-to, comfy casuals. They wanted to create a line of everyday lingerie in which a woman could be her natural sensual self with garments that would feel comfy and look effortlessly lovely. In essence: “Lingerie that allows you to just be you”. The Eberjey brand has since continued to prove time and again that sexy and comfortable can quite easily go hand in hand.
The twosome went on to grow their collection and create not only it’s signature comfortable, luxurious, and fashion forward lingerie, but also swim, lounge, and sleepwear including the now famous, cult-favourite, Gisele PJ’s (more on those below!). It is in this growth that Eberjey has come to see itself as more than just a brand, it’s a way of living. The brand is grounded by the simple premise that we should be genuine - “genuine to connect to ourselves and our sensuality”. Their mantra is like a song singing out the vital benefits of having an open heart, relaxed mind, and a joy filled life!
The luxurious fit and feel of Eberjey sleepwear helps to nurture our only true renewable resource, sleep! The life cycle of relaxation and rest lives at the very heart of Eberjey’s objective and plays a big part in their design and development processes. We love them for their high quality fabrics, impeccable craftsmanship, and clean, classic designs. You’ll love them for how fabulous their sumptuous garments make you look and feel.
The soft and comfy feeling of Eberjey’s sleepwear comes from Lenzing Modal, a fiber that is harvested through sustainable methods in a closed loop system. The brand is fully aware of their potential to create eco-conscious products and also uses such sustainable textiles as, Bamboo, Q-Nova Recycled Nylon, and Organic Pima Cotton. They also contribute to global reforestation efforts through their “Giving PJ’s” initiative by planting a tree for every set of PJ’s sold as part of their partnership with One Tree Planted. “We continue our journey by transitioning our fabrics, processes, and packaging to more responsible options and committing to reduce our overall footprint” - eberjey.
Fun Fact!: The best selling Eberjey Gisele Pajamas are a top pick of celebrities and fashion editors and make fashion best of lists season after season. There is something about the tailored silhouette combined with the buttery-soft fabric that makes us feel so glam when we wear them and that luxurious feeling is truly verifiable. My friends, we are one degree away from actual royalty in these pajamas! The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, wore a pair customized with her character’s name on them in an episode of the TV Show “Suits” and the celebrity sightings don’t stop there! Actress, Anya Taylor-Joy’s character “Beth” wore them on the Netfix series “The Queen’s Gambit”, Kylie and Kris Jenner are known to be big fans, and perhaps the most impressive accolades come from She who needs no introduction nor explanation, OPRAH!!!
"Favorite Things all started because I fell truly, madly, deeply in love with a pair of pj's and wanted to share them with you guys. Some things never change. These are soft, flattering, and timeless." — Oprah Winfrey on the now famed yearly “Oprah’s Favorite Things” list and the Eberjey Gisele Pajamas
Sandpipers Hot Tip!: One of the best parts we've found about our love of this line of sleepwear is that our gift giving future is officially taken care of!!! What could be better than gifting a loved one with pure pajama perfection! I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t want to receive these as a gift nor any occasion where they wouldn’t be a great fit, seriously! Christmas? Eberjey! Hanukkah? Eberjey! Valentines Day? Eberjey! Birthday?, Anniversary?, Bridal Shower?, Eberjey! Eberjey! Eberjey!
We are completely smitten with Eberjey's line of sleepwear and look forward to slipping into them at the end of the day and we can promise you that once you try them, so will you!
