SONDES AND GEOFFREY THOMAS
member of the prestigious Lehman banking family on
side, Sharon Sondes was born in New York and lived in the
same building at 555 Park Avenue for her entire life until a year and a half
ago when she sold her co-op and joined a number of fashionable New Yorkers
(many of them her friends) and bought at house in West Palm Beach.
A popular and highly publicized debutante in the 60s, Sondes was very much
a part of the jet set, the Andy Warhol set and a frequent
visitor to social Hollywood. For years she was famous for her glamorous cocktail
parties at Triple-nickel Park, as it’s called where she entertained a
mix of café society, show biz and the downtown set. Her marriage to
Englishman James Hammond ended in divorce (he married Dana,
now the Mrs. Patrick Stubgen) and Sharon married the Englishman, Henry
Milles-Lade, the 5th Earl Sondes of Lees Court, Kent.
and Geoff Thomas, jewelry designer and former apparel executive
whom she calls “Mugsy” have been together, quite
happily unmarried, since I first met them twelve years ago. They
now divide their time between West Palm and a pied-a-terre at
the Trump Tower in Manhattan.
