August is here. And do you know what that means? Retailers are clearing their stores to make room for fall, and it’s time to get ready for back-to-school. As far as I’m concerned, August is a great month to shop!
So make a list, ask the student in your life what he/she needs, and maybe purchase just a little more and give it to a back-to-school drive in your community. There are always children in your area who could benefit from your donation of a backpack or a pair of shoes. You don’t want to miss these hot (pun intended) August store events happening in Las Vegas.
Kate Spade is on the move, and you only have a few days to save 20% at its newest location at Las Vegas North Premium Outlets. See the flyer below for details.
Summerlin retail spot Tivoli Village (440 S. Rampart) has some sweet sales to tout. Now until August 6th, buy one, get one free on sandals and flip flops at Charming Charlie. For the entire month, save up to 70% on apparel and accessories at BluNoir, and get up to 50% off at d’annata. And because your canine BFF is so over this heat and could use a style treat of his/her own, stop by Shaggy Chic, to purchase the store’s signature shampoo, and receive its signature conditioner for FREE!
