Oscar de la Renta at Lake Tahoe

I’m sure that most SFluxe readers have already secured their tickets, but if not, you must hurry because time is running out. The always popular League to Save Lake Tahoe fashion show is coming up on August 4th! Tickets are $350, and sponsorship (including two tickets and preferred seating) start at $1,750. This year’s turnout should be even higher than last, because Oscar himself is expected to attend (he couldn’t make it in 2006) — and you know how the ladies love Oscar! Call (530) 541-5388 for more information.

While at Lake Tahoe, you might enjoy taking a tour of the Thunderbird Lodge, which was just featured in the San Francisco Chronicle. “Visualize a secluded world of high-stakes poker games, secret tunnels, excursions in racy Duesenbergs or speedboats and Bill, the pet African lion, roaming the house,” says the Chronicle of the historic 1930s home.

Tours are available Tuesday through Friday via shuttle bus from Incline Village, Nev. Adults $32, children ages 6-12, $16. Children younger than 6 not permitted. Boat trips that include a lodge tour are available from Woodwind Cruises, South Lake Tahoe, and the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort in Incline Village, Nev. Land tour reservations: (800) 468-2463.
