Pack up your suitcase and bag a bargain Vegas style, indulge in little (or a lot) of retail therapy and hit the shops in Las Vegas
Get lost – deliberately - in over 40 million square feet of retail heaven. Las Vegas is the best place on the planet to pamper that shopping urge, with everything from souvenir shops to haute couture boutiques.
Whether you take on the strip or stray further afield there is something for every budget from classy haute couture to high street brand names. You can even snap up Calvin Klein Pyjamas or a Ralph Lauren polo shirt with up to 65% off the usual price.
Savvy shoppers with their fingers on the retail pulse won’t be leaving Las Vegas until they have visited The Shoppes at The Palazzo, offering over 60 luxury boutiques. Luxury brands making their debut in The Palazzo include Chloe, Diane Von Furstenberg, Jimmy Choo, and Montblanc, along with Barneys New York.
For the brand conscious with a slightly tighter budget head straight to the new Town Square Las Vegas. It is home to brands such as Abercrombie and Fitch, famous for semi-naked models and stylish clothes all year round, the glamorous Juicy Couture, American Eagle and more. Get fresh and sexy with toiletries from Bath and Bodyworks.
First time visitors to the Las Vegas strip will be quick to learn that there is more than meets the eye to just about everything. Almost every casino or hotel is home to a shopping mall. So don’t be shy, just stroll on in.
For the largest shopping venue on the strip, head to The Fashion Show – all two million square feet of it. The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace presents a shopping experience dripping with grandeur from statues to fountains, majestic stairwells and high ceilings. It is one experience you won’t want to miss, but just try not to let the locals see you drool!
Other popular shopping locations on the strip include the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, home to the first H&M in Las Vegas, and Wynn Esplanade, where you’ll find the only Manolo Blahnik store outside of New York City and Vertu, where you might be tempted to buy a luxury, hand-crafted mobile phone. Via Bellagio and Mandalay Place at Mandalay Bay also offer a variety of unique stores, including LUSH PUPPY, a chic boutique for dog lovers with beds, toys, doggie spa products and even doggie fortune cookies.
