What We Do
In 2008, after a nearly 27-year retail-clothing career in Shadyside, Pursuits employee Maria McManus became owner and operator, fulfilling a life-long dream of owning her own women’s fashion business in the community she loves. Maria is a well-known and popular member of the Walnut Street District, a member of the Shadyside Chamber of Commerce since 1985 — and appeared in Pittsburgh’s WHIRL Magazine October 2010 issue, as part of their “Class Of 2010 Women In Business” feature.
From women’s pants, tops, scarves, and sweaters we have the absolute best in women’s clothing. Our clothes’ relaxed elegance keeps you looking your best all while being as comfortable as possible. Browse through our extensive selection of women’s handbags and accessories while you’re in.
Maria devotes herself to Pursuits and to her customers — having built many life-long friendships through her love of people and fashion — and when asked about Pursuits, Maria will tell you, “We help women feel great one outfit/accessory/handbag at a time… without breaking the bank.”
Maria McManus is a Shadyside Chamber of Commerce member and a member of Independent Shadyside — the grassroots Shadyside independent storeowners group founded in 2010 and responsible for the popular Shadyside Style Walks. Independent Shadyside works to promote all that the Shadyside Independent store owners have to offer the ever-growing, vibrant Pittsburgh fashion community.
