Hope someone can help out, I have no HTML skill set and looking at the Marketo Templates seems like it's very limited. Does Marketo have more templates and where can I find them? or can I purchase 'Marketing Email Templates' from Envato and import them.
All ideas and suggestions are welcomed.

My team and I had the same problem. We found a program that was very cheap and agile. BeeFree.io We now create all our emails in BeeFree and transfer the HTML into Marketo. It is an extra step, but the end result is much better than the standard templates offered by Marketo.
We use Knak for templates, they are easy to use and have quite a few to choose from. I think we've been using them for about 3 years now and have had a good experience.
We just started with Knak about a month ago - and my first template took maybe an hour just to learn--now it's so fast! And their customer support is incredibly helpful. They specifically started the company to fill the niche need for templates as the founders have been longtime Marketo users.
You can also use Marketo professional services to create templates for emails and landing pages that are designed specifically for what you want.
Your best bet is to use an outside agency that specializes in Marketo template design/coding: https://nation.marketo.com/message/187302-re-any-agencies-creating-email-templates
We used Email Monks to design a huge master template for us. Depending on how much advanced design you need they can be really cost effective, and I found them extremely helpful when it came to amends to the template.
