May I bring to your attention the hottest shopportunities of the month? Las Vegas is heating up and so are the retail events. Not only is it time to ready yourself for summer, it’s also time to celebrate your mom. So get out your calendar, mark the dates, and go shop Vegas.
The fun begins immediately on the first day of May. Brooklyn-based jewelry designer Alexis Bittar opens a boutique at The Forum Shops at Caesars (3500 South Las Vegas Blvd). It is the brand’s first stand-alone store in Las Vegas, located on the Level 2 of the shopping center. The 987 square-foot retail location will incorporate the iconic elements of an Alexis Bittar boutique, including décor details such as custom-made floor mirrors created with antiqued, beveled glass and grey-lacquer paneling. The interior design reflects the playful contrast of art and fantasy which creates a distinctly Alexis Bittar environment.
