Meet Stacey Leuliette
Originally from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, Stacey Leuliette now spends her time between the Hamptons in New York; Nantucket, Massachusetts; and Palm Beach, Florida. Graduating with honors and a business degree from Southern Methodist University, Stacey began her career at Ralph Lauren in merchandising and presentation, which laid the foundation for her design aesthetic and helped her develop a discerning eye for consistency in lifestyle branding, marketing, standards, and directives across all platforms.
Stacey left Ralph Lauren to open her own home and gift boutique in the town she grew up in, and from there began her own interior design business, which she has had for over eight years. In addition to running her own business, Stacey has enjoyed roles at Saks Fifth Avenue as Marketing and PR Director in Palm Beach, and at F. Schumacher as sales manager for the Washington, D.C., territory.
As a small business owner herself, supporting the community that surrounds independent businesses has long been a cause near and dear to Stacey’s heart. She is passionate about the mission of TSG and knew that the Hamptons would embrace it as well. She fell in love with the villages Out East after spending time there in the summer and is excited to share and celebrate the incredible community there and help independently owned businesses connect with others.
Stacey is happiest when her body is in motion, and when she’s not working, you’ll most likely find her on a bike, on a yoga mat, on the water sailing, or exploring on her rollerblades. She loves entertaining with friends, traveling, and spoiling her cavapoo, Monty Scout.
Stacey’s Favorite Reasons to Visit
The escape. The towns and villages of the Hamptons (also referred to as ‘Out East’) is most famously known as a popular getaway for people from New York City. Known for its gorgeous beaches, dramatic dunes, and historic charm, The Hamptons draws visitors not only from New York, but across the country! Every town, hamlet, and village has its own special feel and atmosphere and each are worth exploring! From Southampton to Sag Harbor to East Hampton to Amagansett to Sagaponack to Montauk—just to name a few—there is something for everyone!
The arts. For art lovers, the Hamptons has endless opportunities! The magic light of the Hamptons has brought artists to create since the midcentury. Today, institutions like Parrish Art Museum, Southampton Arts Center, Guild Hall, Watermill Center, and Long House Reserve have exhibits that had landed Long Island’s East End as a serious art destination. With countless galleries in the villages and no shortage of art shows and artisans, the art scene in the Hamptons is not to be missed!
The recreation. There are endless ways to connect with the peace and beauty of Mother Nature and unplug from the demands of the everyday. If you’re in the mood to play, catch the surf at Coopers Beach or out at Montauk (aka the end of the world), go wine tasting at Wölffer Estate Vineyard or Lieb Cellars, shop along the boutiques in East and Southampton, climb up Montauk Point Lighthouse (New York’s first ever lighthouse), eat at one of the delicious restaurants and shacks serving delicious seafood everywhere, or stop by one of the many farm stands for fresh harvest. The list goes on and on!
