“The H Boutique completes the Inn at the 5th experience with a level of sophistication unmatched in Eugene. It’s the perfect complement to the personal service you’ll find throughout the hotel and market." - Eric Cole, Inn at the 5th
Eugene, OR (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
The H Boutique (http://www.hboutique.com), located in Eugene’s new luxury boutique hotel the Inn at the 5th, will open its doors to the community on Thursday August 23, 2012.
With the inspiration to help guests discover their own personal style at its core, The H Boutique offers a unique and one-of-a-kind shopping experience that will preview some of the hottest fashion, diamond bridal, fine jewelry, watch and accessories brands (such as Michael Kors, TiSento Milano, Michele, Scott Kay and Tacori).
The H Boutique concept is the vision of third generation Ritchie cousins whose grandfather, Harry Ritchie, founded Harry Ritchie’s Jewelers more than 50 years ago. Unlike traditional jewelry stores, every element of the H Boutique was designed to surprise and delight guests – whether shopping for an engagement ring or looking for the perfect accessory to complete an outfit for girl’s night out.
“We want to redefine the way people shop for jewelry,” said Tobey Ritchie, the H Boutique’s creative director and vice president of marketing for Harry Ritchie’s Jewelers. “The H Boutique is a destination that blends fine and fashion jewelry and celebrates art and style in a bold, modern, relevant way.”
The H Boutique will complement the Inn at the 5th hotel’s unparalleled service with concierge-style shopping services such as personal styling, spa-like treatments for guests’ jewelry, complimentary petit espresso drinks and more.
The H Boutique will also provide in-room delivery and exclusive services for hotel and Gervais spa guests. Further integration with the hotel includes: the ability for hotel guests to dial the H Boutique directly from their room, browse in-room H Boutique service menus, and charge H Boutique purchases to their room; in-room jewelry previews; and custom H Boutique jewelry pouches to safely store jewelry in their room or safe while staying at the Inn.
“The H Boutique completes the Inn at the 5th experience with a level of sophistication unmatched in Eugene,” said Erik Cole, general manager of Inn at the 5th. “It’s the perfect complement to the personal service you’ll find throughout the hotel and market.”
“Contributing to the renaissance of the Fifth Street Public Market, the new H Boutique brings a modern and elegant perspective to our family of retailers,” said Casey Barrett, manager of the Fifth Street Public Market.
The H Boutique’s Jewelry Stylists will offer personal shopping services such as: identifying guests’ personal style, teaching the art of accessorizing and helping guests build a jewelry wardrobe, giving fashion and style tips, providing jewelry pampering sessions, mini-makeovers, and fulfilling gift-giving and proposal wishes. As DCA-Certified Diamontologists, Stylists will provide the perfect diamond and bridal experience.
Here are just a few of the additional features and services that will make the H Boutique truly unlike any other shopping experience in Eugene:
- The Bauble Bar: The H petite drink menu features signature hot and cold beverages from marketplace partners LeBar and Marche Provisions.
- The Belle Bar: A jewelry vanity provides the setting for mini make-up touch-ups from the H Boutique’s in-house Stylist and beauty expert.
- The Sparkle Bar: Stylists will pamper guests’ beloved jewelry as they clean and inspect their current pieces before heading back out on the town. Available to all guests at the H, along with guests of the Inn at the 5th and Gervais Spa (beginning in early September).
- The Watch Wall: Eugene’s largest assortment of fashionable and timeless watches – from top designers like Movado, Michael Kors and Michele to the latest technology from Techno Marine and Phosphor.
- One-of-a-kind jewelry design: Guests may custom-design the perfect engagement ring or jewelry gift with an expert jewelry designer and H Stylist.
