At the Helm of Tarleton is Alexandra Tarleton Mirante, who has built a sterling reputation in the realm of luxury events. With over a decade of experience in full-service planning and production, Alexandra (or “Lexy” as she’s affectionately known) brings unparalleled experiential designs to life nationwide.

Alexandra’s early experience was within the world of professional sporting events with the National Hockey League and the United States Tennis Association. Afterwards, she took her knowledge of what it takes to produce world-class large-scale sporting events, to coordinating fundraising events for several venerable philanthropic foundations in Washington, DC, then later, for the Aspen Art Museum. Alexandra then became a Lead Planner with Bluebird Productions, widely recognized as one of the top worldwide luxury event planning firms by BRIDES, Martha Stewart, Over the Moon, and Vogue.

She formed Tarleton as a result of craving the limitless bounds for creativity with social and corporate events, which now are a permanent fixture in her repertoire. Her distinctive, understated style and grace, passion for entertaining, trademark attention to detail, and indomitable energy make her a perennial favorite amongst her clients, as many return year after year. 

Alexandra has had the distinct honor of contributing her efforts to such notable events as the U.S. Open Championships, Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup (co-founded by Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex), Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Awards, as well as events surrounding Super Bowl LII, the PGA TOUR Championships, and the Food & Wine Classic. She has executed highly-successful activations for Fortune 100 companies such as American Express, FedEx, and J.P Morgan Chase, as well as for several luxury houses in the LVMH portfolio. Well-experienced with discerning clientele and guests, Alexandra has navigated interactions with professional athletes, the family of a Former United States President, a former member of the British Monarchy, Justices of the United States Supreme Court, The Office of the White House, United States Senators and Representatives, and State-Level Elected Officials with aplomb.

Educated at The Hun School of Princeton, Rutgers University School of Arts and Sciences, The George Washington University School of Business and Harvard University School of Extension Studies, Alexandra has a deep commitment to being a lifelong learner. 

She splits her time between her mountain haven of Aspen, Colorado and historic hometown of Princeton, New Jersey. Her Welsh Springer Spaniel, Callie, lent her likeness to Tarleton's logo; it's a breed known for its steadfast loyalty, playfulness and affectionate personality.

event coordinator

With over a decade of luxury hospitality experience, Kait buoys Tarleton's planning efforts at every turn with her exciting experiential ideas, which flow from her extensive background in boutique travel, leisure and tourism.

Kait's attention to detail, efficiency and creativity can be traced to her early career as a visual and creative coordinator with Ralph Lauren, and then with a Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five Diamond, and Relais & Châteaux property. Her ability to create beautiful, memorable and unique experiences is further strengthened by her time as a destination manager for ultra-luxury travel brands, Inspirato and Cuvée, then later as an estate manager for a Fortune 500 family and as an executive assistant for a global non-profit; she adeptly pairs her organizational skills with her passion for bringing clients' ideas to life. A driving force for her work in luxury events is making the most of the opportunity to open guests' eyes and minds to experience things differently and in a special way. 

Originally from New Canaan, Connecticut, and educated at Boston University, Kait moved westward after school, and has been a full-time resident of Aspen, Colorado for the past sixteen years; she is likely to be found on the slopes on any given winter's day. Kait draws upon her experiences a seasoned and extensive traveler to enhance Tarleton's ability to achieve rapid familiarity with new destinations.
