pri­vate club, Mar-a-Lago, for events, in­clud­ing her daugh­ter’s wed­ding — Tif­fany mar­ried Si­mon Philip Isaacs on Feb. 14, 2010.

Marks started her hand­bag busi­ness in Palm Beach in 1987, and has since then pro­vided styles for big names such as Sarah Jes­sica Parker, Jen­nifer Anis­ton, First Lady Laura Bush and the late Princess Diana. Ac­cord­ing to the Daily Mail, her Cleopa­tra clutch, adorned with hun­dreds of di­a­monds, is to be one of the best in­vest­ment hand­bags with a pre­dicted in­creas­ing value of 363,000 eu­ros. Her be­jew­eled ex­otic leather pieces con­tinue to grace the hands of first ladies, roy­alty and celebri­ties in red car­pet events and par­ties.

In 2000, Lana Marks’ store opened on Worth Av­enue be­fore clos­ing in 2010. She re­turned six years later, when she opened up her cur­rent Palm Beach store in Suite 212 of The Es­planade.

As news cir­cled of Marks’ pos­si­ble ap­point­ment, out­lets have probed her re­la­tion­ship with the Princess of Wales and whether Marks has played ten­nis at Wim­ble­don and the French Open, as she’s claimed.

On Wed­nes­day, the Lana Marks busi­ness In­sta­gram ac­count took a break from post­ing photos of its lux­ury hand­bags to put up a pic­ture of news­pa­per clip­pings men­tion­ing her par­tic­i­pa­tion in the 1978 French Open.

Once nom­i­nated by the White House, am­bas­sador­ship ap­pointees must turn to the gov­ern­ment of the host coun­try for ap­proval.

If ap­proved, then the wait be­gins for a Sen­ate con­fir­ma­tion.

But an Amer­i­can For­eign Ser­vice list of am­bas­sador ap­point­ments last up­dated on Sept. 28 doesn’t list Marks as a nom­i­nee.

If Marks is ap­proved and con­firmed, she would join the club of Palm Beach U.S. am­bas­sadors in­clud­ing Robin Bernstein (Do­mini­can Repub­lic), Duke Buchan III (Spain), Woody John­son (Court of St. James), Bon­nie McElveen-Hunter (Fin­land) and Guil­ford Dud­ley Jr. (Den­mark).
