I have two virtual switches set up in Hyper-V (Windows 8).
The private switch is used for a lab(3 VM Window Servers) and the external switch is for a Windows XP VM client for production and domain joined.

Having two different switches, when I look at network adapter settings in Control Panel of my host, There are two adapters, 'Ethernet' (IPv4 properties grayed out) and 'vEthernet'.

I like to keep my lab enviroment isolated and give internet access, while I have the XP VM client is also connected to our physical network.

How can I accomplish this?

You can't. By definition a private network has no external access and therefore would not get internet.

You'd have to configure the switch as external, or otherwise proxy traffic to the private network through a. machine connected to both the private switch and an external switch.

What is the good approach to solve this situation where I need one virtual network for my physical LAN and the other virtual network isolated while having access to internet? I guess many has encountered the same situations before, wonder how they set up in their virtual environment.

The only thing I could think of  is, configure only one external virtual switch and create a new VLAN for the private network, and configure the physical switches and router in the organization, but this seems somewhat extended path just to have a lab with internet.

VLANs. Two external switches connected to two separate physical networks (most UTMs and routers support multiple separate networks), or two external switches connected to one physical network that has been segmented by VLANs. All are options. I've done all three to meet needs but which choice is a matter of evaluating the end goal and choosing the best option. That's an in-depth conversation.
