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.

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?).

Still not at full capacity, The Linq shopping promenade will at least fill in two more storefronts in the next few days.

Facebook'er Angela S. asked Grand Bazaar's page for an opening timeline on December 2. Yesterday, a response pushed back its arrival about two months:
Already boasting some 150 brands (really? someone count that out for us..), an expansion underway for downtown's outlet mall will add at least 25 new stores. The exact number seems to be in flux as we've seen reports citing 25, 30, 34 and 35 new retailers on the way. Regardless, Las Vegas North Premium Outlets aims to debut an increased lineup by May 2015.

The LINQ promenade should have one less empty storefront before year's end.
Havaianas, a Brazilian company known for its flip flops, is expected to open its first stand-alone location in Vegas at the LINQ before 2014 draws to a close. It had been previously anticipated that the brand would open a boutique at Bally's Grand Bazaar Shops so we don't know if this will be one of two for the Strip, or if it's just switching locales. Since the company's website only lists the LINQ as coming soon, perhaps it will end up being the latter.
