Here, this simple variation of your original recipe will display the
string in the margin using the 'default' face:

  (set-window-margins (get-buffer-window) 20 0)
  (setq ovstring (propertize "Hi, there!" 'face 'default))  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
  (overlay-put (make-overlay (point) (point)) 'before-string 
               (propertize "."
                           'display
                           `((margin left-margin) ,ovstring)))
  (hl-line-mode)

The line marked with "<<<<<" is the main part of the solution.
