According to figures released by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, in 2016, 69% of visitors to Las Vegas spent money on shopping, while just 23% spent their money on sightseeing.
With exclusive items, champagne on tap, private VIP lounges, after-hours showings, and multilingual private shoppers, is there any question as to why?
The demand for luxury shopping in Las Vegas is on the rise, and the city is working hard to accommodate this. Givenchy’s U.S. retail expansion began in Las Vegas rather than New York City, and many other high-end brands have entered Sin City’s luxury centers, which have, by the way, become even more exclusive.
So, if you’re planning a shopping trip with a difference, here’s what Las Vegas has to offer you:
Indulge in Luxury Shopping at Caesar’s Palace
There is, quite literally, something for everyone at the Forums Shops at Caesar’s Palace. Luxury sports and classic vehicles can be found in the two-story, 34,000 square-foot showroom of Exotic Cars, making it a must-visit for all automobile enthusiasts.
Equally, those looking for an extraordinary shopping experience will delight in the mall’s specialty stores and designer boutiques. These include Gianni Versace, Fendi, Burberry, Harry Winston, Bulgari, Ann Taylor, Hugo Boss, and Lalique – to name a few.
And the best bit is, all of these stores are located within an extravagant palace-style mall, which is dripping with ornate decorations and high ceilings.
Be Greeted with In-Room Gifts at the Top Hotels
There’s nothing quite like starting your shopping trip off in style than being greeted with a hand-selected gift from the hotel you’re staying at. Within the hotels, there are select shops, such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton, who choose appropriate gifts for men and women, which will be waiting for you on your arrival.
Enjoy In-Store, Private Events that Are Arranged Just for You
Within several of Las Vegas’ shops, you can treat yourself to a shopping event that’s reserved just for you. For example, in Via Bellagio, you can be shown the entire Louis Vuitton collection while also enjoying an exclusive view of The Fountains of Bellagio from the outdoor patio. Or, in the Wynn Esplanade, you can have a private showing of the Wynn Collection, where you’ll behold some of the world’s most famous accessories and fashions for men and women.
Other centers also offer premium events and programs, which aren’t to be missed out on. At the Fashion Show mall, you can gain access to private fashion shows that are held on its own runway. Or, why not pamper yourself with a wardrobe seminar or exclusive beauty treatment?
Bespoke Pieces and a British-Themed Experience
Finally, no luxury shopping trip to Las Vegas would be complete without a trip to STITCHED, which can be found at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Here you’ll find custom-made shirts and suits for men, but it’s the added experiences that make this store stand out from the crowd.
For groups of 30 to 125 people, STITCHED offers a unique dining and shopping experience. Within its Scotch Locker Lounge, which has been decorated in a quintessentially British style, you can sip on Jameson whiskey and dine on meals from the STK Steakhouse. Each of the guests will also be measured up for a piece of custom clothing, which is why it’s a favorite among lawyers, doctors, athletes, and other professional groups.
Streets of Style in Las Vegas
Aside from these indulgent shopping experiences, you might also want to venture to some of the other hotel shopping rows on offer. For example, at The Venetian, you’ll find the Grand Canal Shoppes, which is home to over 80 high-end shops, including Michael Kors, Barneys New York, Tory Burch, Diane von Furstenberg, Sephora, and Dooney & Bourke.
With all of the leading high-end brands amidst unique, luxury shopping experiences, Las Vegas is the ultimate place to shop ‘til you drop.
