After 40 Years of Skin Care on St. Thomas, Gesine Announces Retirement from Erno Laszlo

“After 40 years with Erno Laszo in the Virgin Islands, I am announcing my retirement,” said Gesine Locker.

Gesine, who moved to St. Thomas with her family in 1973 recalls, “I strived to offer the skin care rituals previously reserved for the likes of Greta Garbo, Lillian Gish, Katharine Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to everyone.”

In 1977, Gesine brought the world-renowned skin care line from Erno Laszlo to the Virgin Islands. From within the Philip Sturm Hair Studio in Royal Dane Mall, the store later expanded to the Virgin Islands Hotel, and had a brief waterfront appearance before settling in at Palm Passage.

Over the decades, countless Virgin Islanders and visitors learned about the “Laszlo Clock” and rituals from Gesine. Gesine’s customer base is global, as she can extend the Virgin Islands’ duty free pricing to customers who visited the shop.

“’Thanks’ alone is not a strong enough word to express my gratitude for all the loyal support through the decades. I am honored to be a trusted part of your life,” said Gesine. “It was a tough decision, but as they say, all good things…”

Gesine will continue to take telephone and Internet orders placed on or before March 1, 2017, to be filled through mid-March. Web site: www.gesinevi.com
