It Takes A Village
Tivoli Village, an experiential luxury center, with a curated collection of retailers ranging from luxury brands to one-of-a-kind boutiques, is the prestigious lifestyle destination in Las Vegas. Tivoli Village wows customers with unique amenities, businesses, boutique retailers and restaurant options, with several being women owned.
Tivoli’s assistant general manager and marketing and events maven, Andrea Schubert, boasts “Tivoli is a community village. It is more than a shopping destination, it is a unique, local, and un-chain-like place where people can gather, stroll and socialize.”
Schubert has previously held positions in operations and event management with International Market Centers for their corporate properties located in both Las Vegas and High Point, North Carolina. Andrea graduated from the University of Nebraska—Lincoln with a B.A. in Communications and Public Relations and holds a Certificate of Exhibition Management through the International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE).
Some of the women-owned businesses include Center For Sight, which opened its state-of-the-art flagship location at Tivoli Village in 2017, led by the renowned Dr. Eva Liang, board-certified ophthalmologist and refractive surgeon. During Liang’s career, she has surgically preserved and enhanced the sight of more than 20,000 patients.
Dr. Liang founded “Sight for Life,” a non-profit organization that assists underprivileged individuals suffering from sight-threatening disease to receive extraordinary medical and surgical eye care.
Another popular business includes the award-winning Leticia’s Mexican Cocina, owned by entrepreneur, Leticia Mitchell, which opened at Tivoli Village in June 2017.
Known for her authentic Mexican cuisine, Chef Leticia, born in Mexico City, has participated in notable challenges on Food Network and Cooking Channel, and donates her time and expertise to the annual Flavors of the Heart event to benefit the American Heart Association.
Tivoli is also the home to Cork and Thorn, created by owner, Randi Garrett, who shares her background in floral design with her outside company, Naakiti Floral Design.
Garrett explains, “I have a passion for wine, and I love to drink it. I have a floral and decor company and have owned that for 18 years. I combined the two to give a twist on wine and flowers.” Garrett is also active in giving back to the community and hosts several charitable events, including Junior League, at Cork and Thorn.
Showcasing unique and original designs is also a key element to the experiential retail component for Tivoli Village. Recent award recipient, River North’s owner, Shelley Gorman, features an artistic boutique highlighting furniture, lighting, rugs and home decor. Gorman holds a six-year degree in architecture from the University of Arizona and has worked on projects in California and Nevada. Gorman also founded SKG DESIGNS in 2007 to focus on the more tactile field of residential interior design. The designer’s knowledge and training are an asset to her design toolbox when creating her custom interiors.
Several other women also share in the responsibility and impact for successful businesses at Tivoli Village, such as the Director of Guest Relations, Sheryl Best, from Echo & Rig. Working alongside her brother, Chef Sam Marvin, Best oversees the community, wedding and corporate events for Echo & Rig Butcher and Steakhouse. Being involved with the family business allows Best the platform to make a difference in the Las Vegas Valley, as well as creating unforgettable experiences for restaurant guests.
In addition to supporting many local owners and talent for the Saturday Farmer’s Markets, Happy Hour Fridays and Art & Design Tuesdays, Tivoli Village continues to provide social experiences and events to the community. Visit tivolivillagelv.com for more information.
