In case you were wondering, Valentino really IS opening up adjacent to the Bellagio front desk. Hermes was already across from the check-in area facing the bell desk on one side and facing Petrossian lounge on the other side.
Now Hermes and Valentino’s storefronts are staring each other down, enemies in the same hotel lobby, vying for shoppers’ dollars. It threw me off when I heard another shop was opening inside of the Bellagio lobby because, as a luxury property, with a gorgeous lobby complete with the Fiori di Como flowers by glass sculptor Dale Chihuly, the lobby already had a lot of pretty things to look at.
The Bellagio is not short on luxury designer stores as it's already home to a Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta, Gucci, Prada, Hermes and a Harry Winston, but there's apparently room for one more--Valentino, an Italian fashion house.
A VegasChatter spy who was ambling through the property today told us that the super secret lobby project the hotel is working on has been revealed to be a Valentino store near the bell desk. Typically, the really high-end luxury stores are on the Via Bellagio but this one will be closer to the Bellagio's entrance. The construction walls have just gone up with the Valentino name but we don't have a timeline on the opening.
Valentino already has two other stores in Las Vegas--at The Forum Shops and The Shops at The Crystals--so we wonder if they will drop one of those. Or maybe demand for the brand's signature "Rockstud" shoes (retailing for nearly $1,000) and handbags (retailing for $3,000) really warrants a third store. We'll find out soon enough.

The D is the latest Las Vegas casino-hotel to offer merchandise from their property for purchase online. The new merch store called The D Shop (like the store in the casino) offers a variety of items from art you'll find in the hotel rooms to more traditional merchandise with their logo like t-shirts, coffee mugs and hats. In all, there are 26 items available for purchase on The D Shop online.
A recent visit found exactly two shops and one bar occupied, out of a total of 84 outlets (according to the list of open and soon-to-be-open shops on the venue’s website). Now obviously we weren’t in all places at one time to get an accurate headcount, but as we strolled along, these were the only non-employee folks we saw.
And speaking of employees, each looked more bored than the last because they unfortunately didn’t have
any human contact at all very many customers. The rows of small shops had a lot of repeats such as the pair of salon/hair places right next to each other that had a forthcoming “beauty center” for a soon-to-be neighbor.
The long walk to the Strip entrance of Bally's has disappeared behind the recently(ish) opened Grand Bazaar Shops that nearly extend to Las Vegas Boulevard now. The first shops actually opened February 26, but it was a recent visit to Bellagio that spurred us to finally swing by the outdoor retail and dining shops.
Our first observation of the shops from across the street at Bellagio was how effective the Swarovski crystal starburst was at drawing our attention to the area in front of Bally's when lit at night. Our second was how easy getting there was. If Tiffany & Co., Harry Winston and Gucci are outside your budget these more wallet-friendly shops are a short walk over and down the pedestrian bridge connecting Bellagio and Bally's.
There's less than a month before Las Vegas North Premium Outlets in downtown Vegas debuts an expansion set to bring dozens of new brands to the open-air mall.
Shoppers should mark Thursday, May 14 as the day their lives will change forever. Okay, maybe it's not all that dramatic -- okay, it's not dramatic at all -- but that date is when you'll find savings on merchandise from close to 40 new retailers.
If you're shopping for your best “Sex in the City” Carrie look, you'll probably find it at The Shops at Crystals. If you’re still jonesing for Sarah Jessica Parker’s style from the iconic show (and movies!), now’s your chance to ask the actress which shoes she thinks complement your own unique look. She’ll be on hand for a pop-up boutique at Crystals featuring her footwear collection, SJP, later this week.
If you haven't been to downtown's Premium Outlets in a while, this May you'll have 33 new reasons to stop by.

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.
