ORLANDO, FL — Grande Lakes Orlando, the 500-acre luxury resort destination located in the headwaters of the Florida Everglades, anchored by The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes, and JW Marriott Orlando, Grand Lakes, has announced the opening of a dedicated on-property Fifth Avenue Club in partnership with Saks Fifth Avenue. Following the luxury retailer’s launch of this new initiative in June, Grande Lakes Orlando now offers a private, standalone personal shopping and styling suite on property, connecting guests with the services that Saks Fifth Avenue is known for.
The Fifth Avenue Club is taking over a suite at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes and is open to resort guests and locals alike. The suite offers customized services and a shopping experience with personal shopping and styling appointments, as well as special events and trunk shows. Clients can connect with skilled personal stylists for curated merchandise selections across Saks Fifth Avenue’s luxury brands. Each Fifth Avenue Club stylist works closely with clients during an initial consultation to gather style preference, wardrobe requests and needs, sizing, and designer preferences. Following the consultation, a curated selection of clothing, accessories, shoes, and fine jewelry will be delivered to the Fifth Avenue Club for each client to browse and shop.
As Grande Lakes Orlando launches this new collaboration, the resort is proud to align with Saks Fifth Avenue’s support of Kids Beating Cancer, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing access to life-saving treatments through the science of cellular therapy and advancing innovative pediatric research and new discoveries to patient care, all while supporting the children and their families throughout the journey to a cure. The resort recently hosted a private event in benefit of Kids Beating Cancer at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando.
“We are continuously looking for insider experiences and amenities to offer guests and the addition of the new Fifth Avenue Club brings VIP services from one of the nation’s most recognizable luxury fashion retailers,” said Jon McGavin, Area General Manager of Grande Lakes Orlando, in a press release. “Not only will this provide a unique personalized offering to guests, but it allows us to foster a broader connection to our surrounding community.”
