ABOUT TSG NANTUCKET EDITOR/OWNER STACEY LEULIETTE:
Originally from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, Stacey Leuliette now spends her time between Nantucket, Massachusetts, and Palm Beach, Florida. Prior to living in Nantucket and Palm Beach, she received a business degree from Southern Methodist University, and 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 6 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 Nantucket would embrace it as well. She fell in love with the island 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 two pups, Mackie and Monty Scout.
STACEY’S THREE FAVORITE REASONS TO VISIT NANTUCKET:
- The community. “The island is home to so many creative, unique individuals year-round, and is a gathering place for even more during high season. The town is a collection of individually owned businesses that give the island uncompromising character and charm. From The Daffodil Festival in Spring to the Figawi regatta, The Nantucket Film festival, Wine Festival, Cranberry Festival, Christmas Stroll, and countless other community events, Nantucket is one of the most festive and engaged communities!”
- The seasons. “Summer is high season and when the town and island are all abuzz with visitors and a busy social calendar, but the spring and fall months are some of the most beautiful, with the freshness of spring blooms and that crisp New England fall air. Christmas Stroll marks the beginning of winter for the island, when locals use these months to recharge and prepare for the busy months ahead!”
- The outdoors. “There are endless ways to connect with the peace and beauty of Mother Nature and unplug from the demands of the everyday. The beaches are beautiful, and the sailing off the island is exceptional. The island is very bike-friendly, and there are countless paths around the island to enjoy and explore.”
