The Forum Shops at Caesars offers something for everyone during one fashionable evening.
By Susan Stapleton
It seems every fashion boutique at The Forum Shops at Caesars is rolling out the red carpet for shoppers when Fashion’s Night Out comes calling on Thursday, Sept. 6.The fourth annual night that celebrates all that is fabulous in fashion brings in-store events, cocktails, raffles, gifts and more from 6-11 p.m. at the 160 boutiques within the shopping center. All guests can register to win one of three $500 shopping sprees raffled off during the night.
Some stores are going all out, such as Ted Baker London with its British-themed party with complimentary tote bags given out with every purchase. Giuseppe Zanotti is staging a trunk show while places such as Bettie Page, Custo Barcelona, Gap, Intermix, Lacoste and more have special discounts during the event. Others such as Gucci, Scoop NYC and Valentino keep guests fueled up with cocktails and light bites. Then shoppers can head to Emilio Pucci, Tory Burch and Brighton Collectibles for dessert
Other stores are offering gifts with purchase. Tommy Bahama, for example, has a limited-edition scarf available with any purchase. Inglot is offering free makeovers when shoppers buy, and Juicy Couture showcases its new fragrance, Viva La Juicy La Fleur, that night.
In the past year, 11 new retailers have joined the mix in The Forum Shops. Some are firsts in the Las Vegas market, such as watchmakers Hublot and Panerai, fashion label Marc by Marc Jacobs and the first U.S. location of jeweler Hearts on Fire. Soon the center will be home to Rolex, Alfred Dunhill, Breitling and Italian restaurant Carmine’s, which plans its first foray to the West Coast. Henri Bendel, the New York women’s boutique, also plans to open its second Vegas location in time for the holidays.
Another seven boutiques got just a bit bigger. Fendi now has a second boutique just for shoes in addition to an expanded store. Louis Vuitton and Salvatore Ferragamo both expanded, while the Swarovski store doubled in size.
