From welcoming a whopping 12 new retailers to launching designer pop-up carts, The Grove continues to grow its fashionable empire. We previously mentioned that stylehaüs was heading to the hot shopping center, but didn't know much about the initiative—until now.
It has just been revealed that a 1,000 square-foot stylehaüs lounge is being built into The Grove's multi-million dollar lobby upgrade and will be spearheaded by the styling service/boutique's founder Marina Monroe. Similar to her existing Melrose location, this new space will feature a curated mix of high-end and vintage apparel and accessories for both men and women, as well as a members-only styling service for $100 per day or $1,000 per year. Monroe's new gig also comes with a fancy title: Executive Style Director.
"As The Grove's first Executive Style Director, I am looking forward to enhancing the client experience by creating new programs and initiatives that help people shop smarter," Monroe exclusively tells Racked. "With the presence of stylehaüs, my boutique and styling service, fashion will come first and shoppers will be given unparalleled service and access to style amenities." Look out for stylehaüs at The Grove in early December.
