If you haven't been to downtown's Premium Outlets in a while, this May you'll have 33 new reasons to stop by.
On Thursday, May 14, Las Vegas North Premium Outlets will introduce dozens of new tenants. In addition to the first Cheesecake Factory in Downtown Vegas (the fourth for the Las Vegas valley), the outlet mall will welcome 33 brands including:

Pawn Plaza, a shipping container shopping center being constructed just south of the cable-famous Gold & Silver Pawn by owner Rick Harrison, has announced its first three tenants. And, surprise! They're all dining spots!

Downtown Las Vegas continues to evolve as a work/play/live community. In the past few years, we’ve witnessed the transformation of Fremont East from a depressed area into a thriving neighborhood and nightspot. Closed storefronts and empty lots have been reclaimed by a variety of unique shops and restaurants as well as a mall made of shipping containers. The one thing lacking had been a grocery store. That changed last October with the opening of The Market.

What is Guerlain? What is this thing being built right at the parking garage entrance into Bellagio with an ornate bee-adorned golden bottle printed on the plywood? Is it liquor? Honey? No, it is perfume and makeup, and some of the fanciest of both in the world.

A few savvy VegasChatter readers have already been eagerly awaiting it. Now, the official Town Square Twitter feed has spoken: Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th will relocate from the Las Vegas Premium Outlets South to Town Square March 12. If you’ve never been to the outlet version of Saks, think Nordstrom Rack, but a tad fancier and a tad pricier, at least IMO.

An interesting trend for some higher-end shopping areas around the country are "bottle it yourself" stores. Most sell different flavors of oil and vinegar and sometimes alcohol, but too many are dressed-up, get-rich-quick schemes that buy a couple industrial barrels of the base ingredient and inject artificial lab-grown "aromas" into them. This is very similar to the way certain vodka brands have every meme flavor under the sun (lol at bacon, maple, cotton candy, and bourbon flavored vodka) and generally has the same effect. However, it would appear these are all pale imitations of other enterprises like VOM FASS.

If you were the former, Gilt is a members-only online shopping site that provides discounts on a variety of mostly high-end brands. For instance, a Lanvin clutch could retail for $1,390, but you'd find it on Gilt for $999. If Target is to Walmart than Gilt is to Zappos, or thereabouts.
Vegas Delays / CVS / TI / Treasure Island / Shopping / Openings / The Strip / → All Tags
After a once planned debut of last September and a new target month of November that came and went, Treasure Island's self-dubbed retail-tainment center is still an empty shell today.
CVS has been the only announced tenant for the three-story addition. It will eventually cover the entire ground floor of the building, sprawling some 12,000-15,000 (figures have varied) square feet.

After failing to meet a late December debut, the grand shopping
experiment experience in front of Bally's seems to be on track for a late February reveal.
VegasChatter friend Reggie discovered that one of the center's retailers, LUSH, issued a press release touting a February 26 launch. When he took that ball and passed it to us, we found another vendor, Vapor Kings, has also announced a debut of Thursday, February 26. Of course, with some 79 announced tenants and a capacity for 21 to 71 more (official numbers have varied), a rolling launch is most likely but February 26 may be the day it all begins.

If 2014 was the year of the new hotel, 2015 will be the year of the restaurant in Las Vegas. A billion (rough estimate) new dining destinations will fire up around Las Vegas this year and, for the most part, that's about it. Yes, we'll also see the arrival of Hakkasan North, erm.. Omnia.. and the Delano Beach Club, but otherwise, you're going to have some eating to do. And, by some, I mean you need to buy extra stretchy pants now.
So yeah, dining. You won't be able to walk in any direction without running into a new eatery this year. Aria will welcome Michael Mina's BARDOT Brasserie (January 16). Casino Royale will be all about that White Castle (expected later this month). Bellagio will bring the Lago (March). Caesars Palace will launch Searsucker and MR CHOW (both this spring). Gordon Ramsay will bring his Fish & Chips to The LINQ (spring). Morimoto will finally fire it up at The Mirage (summer). Rivea will replace miX at Delano (September?).
