While the beautifully designed world of The Forum Shops at Caesars is one of make-believe, with re-creations of the ancient streets of Rome and an outdoor feel provided by ceilings painted with blue skies and white clouds, the fashion housed inside couldn’t get more real. Nearly every influential brand available has joined the collection of more than 150 boutiques residing inside the retail emporium.

Another part of The Forum Shops’ appeal is its perpetual offerings of innovative boutiques. High-end brands here get creative with their space, offering shoppers an experience along with the latest apparel. You can see that at the newly opened Polo Ralph Lauren, a concept store dedicated to the brand’s iconic Polo history. The design of the space reflects the timeless spirit of the brand, serving as the backdrop for the brand-new Polo collection for men and women.

The Forum Shops also serves as the destination for many brands’ first U.S. ventures and exclusive-to-Las Vegas collections. Take Blancpain, the world’s oldest maker of timepieces. This location is its second U.S. venture, and the only location on the West Coast. Visitors to Blancpain can view the brand’s entire collection of timepieces as well as models built exclusively for the new shop.

Speaking of exclusive, with Black Friday around the corner, The Forum Shops joins the one-day retail romp with special offers like 40 percent off purchases at Banana Republic and 30 percent off fall/winter merchandise at Ted Baker London. MAC offers its holiday makeup set at a discounted price, while Pandora offers a limited-edition Black Friday charm. At Gap, all pieces in the store are 50 percent off, while H&M will have fashion finds for as low as $4.95.
