Ever forget a tote, a pair of sunglasses or an accessory in the rush to pack for vacation? Fred Segal Santa Monica offers a solution with its Fred Segal Lending Library — a collection of on-loan jewelry, purses, sunglasses and other accessories — at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel.
“When stocking the library, I thought of items I forgot to pack in the past and wished I had the opportunity to borrow from a hotel,” Kirsten Segal, director of marketing and event planning at Fred Segal, said. “I focused on accessories because I felt guests would forget to bring those little details or would be more inclined to borrow something fun for the weekend that they didn’t already own.”
The partnership enables guests of Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel to borrow a plethora of items for women, men, children and pets. Prices range from a $10 children’s book to a $500 silver evening clutch.
The collection of close to 50 accessories includes embellished scarves, layered necklaces, oversized stone cuffs, chunky bangles, aviator and fold-up sunglasses, belts, totes, woven leather purses and dog toys.
“The new Lending Library is designed to be both fun and functional, and gives our guests a chance to experience one of Los Angeles’ most iconic shopping destinations,” Michael Fox, chief concierge at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel, said.
The library is available exclusively at Loews. The service is complimentary for guests who purchase a suite at the hotel. The hotel is offering a special “Suite Deal” package that includes overnight accommodations in a grand suite, access to the library, complimentary parking, Internet and a welcome amenity from now until Dec. 30.
