This mall is terrific!
Besides the elegant shops with best brands, there is also a food court on the first floor.
We especially liked the kitchen accessories shop "Williams- Sonoma". Tools, cookware, electrics, furnishings, flatware, books...They also sell original cute little kitchen gadgets.
Among other items we bought a CD with American "BBQ music".
And it worked out well here in Belgium! Success guaranteed! :-)
If you are looking for stores such as Target, Best Buy, etc Big Box stores such as this,as I often do when visiting somewhere. Visit Henderson-a short trip from the strip and they have all of these types of stores.
We always make a point of going to outlet malls when we go to the States the prices are at least half the price we would pay here in the UK. We were not disappointed.
Over 100 stores here including Tommy Hilfiger, Timberland, Adidad, Calvin Klein, shops selling gifts, household goods also.
What to buy: I bought some lovely leather, walking kind of shoes. My husband bought 3 (yes 3 isnt he greedy) Tommy Hilfiger sweaters.
What to pay: My shoes were $40 and my husbands sweaters were about $30 each great value.
The Fashion Mall is a great place for a shop. It has some of the big department stores - Saks, Macy's, Bloomingdales,...... plus a number of smaller shops including Coach (great for bags), foot locker, body shop, art shops, jewelry and many other shops you would expect to find in a mall.
It is best to catch a taxi to the Fashion Mall, and if you need to catch one back to the strip try Macys or Bloomingdales (plus Saks i think).
What to pay: prices vary considerably
It's about 45mins drive from the strip. A bit far....I prefer the Las Vegas Premium Outlet.
Primm Outlet is known as the Fashion Outlet.
It's definitely cheaper to shop in these outlets. Shopping at the hotels are very pricey. Including Fashion Mall, but sometimes they have good sales.
Check all the local mall information here:
What to pay: $50 plus
The best outlet in Las Vegas, located near downtown Las Vegas.
This is one of the many Chelsea Premium Outlets. If you're looking for branded goods. This is the place for best selections.
What to pay: $50 and more....
The las Vegas Premium Outlets provides over 120 stores only a few minutes form the "strip." Think Armani, Coach, Kenneth Cole for just a few.
While I'm not an "outlet" suporter per se, they can provide some good deals on items if you know what you are looking for and you know what the prices should be.
Catch a sale at the outlets and you can really save some $$$
What to buy: ...ah....Most anything you want that is legal in Nevada....
This is for the serious shopper who doesn't mind spending the money. Department stores include Bloomingdales and Nieman Marcus.
What to buy: This is not so much a specialty shop mall, but rather a mall where the shops are those of famous designers and upscale department stores.
What to pay: Depending on where you shop and what you're looking for, shopping here can get pretty pricey!!
This mall is right on the Las Vegas Strip - it is a typical mall, but ......
Despite having the usual sorts of specialty clothing and department stores, I find the clothing in the stores from this mall so very different from the same stores closer to home.
The clothing is trendier, more varied, and just plain more fun! Of course, in some ways it's also more expensive .... but if you look for a sale when you are in town, you can plan to buy an extra suitcase to bring home your new wardrobe :)
What to buy: I was there just after New Year's and there were sales galore ... I brought home SHOES!!! Via Spiga, Weisman, Cole Haan, and more ..... yup, more than I intended to spend while there - but the sales were so good that I got 8 pairs of dressy designer shoes for about $300.00 :) Thank goodness I drove there!
We visited a large shopping mall to get away from the high prices on the strip. A cab from The Bellagio was just a few dollars and enabled us to pick up lots of bargains.
I can't remember the name but all cabbies will know it.
If you don't want to pay Forum prices, try the Fashion Show Mall.
Currently completing a multi-million dollar expansion it features Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's Home,Neiman Marcus, Macy's, Robinsons-May, Dillard's and Saks Fifth Avenue as primary anchor stores.
The Las Vegas Boulevard Expansion, opened October 2003, features new retail, dining and entertainment opportunities and a new, 11,000 sq.ft. food court.
Also featured is "The Cloud," a 500-foot-long, cloud-shaped canopy that provides visual entertainment while suspended 180 feet in the air above Las Vegas Boulevard.

If it's bargains on shoes or housewares you're looking for, Las Vegas Outlet Center is where you'll find them. The outlet mall has 12 stores devoted exclusively to the home. The newest, Dansk, located in the shopping annex, offers high-end tableware and cutlery at a budget-friendly price. The china patterns are colorful and inviting; patterns Fall Harvest and Tuscan are perfect for those fond of Roman-style furnishings. The origami-style flatware is beautiful as well as reasonably priced. Some items can be had for 30 percent off on the clearance shelves in the back of the store.
What to buy: The Nike store has great bargains on Nike Wear. Also Tommy Hilfiger also has great deals on Tommy Jeans.
If you'd like to get out of the casinos the three major malls/outlets that I can think of are...
*The Las Vegas Outlet Center (previously known as the Beltz Factory Outlet) located south of the strip;
*Fashion Show Las Vegas (recently renovated) located on the strip next to Ti (Treasure Island); and
*The Las Vegas Premium Outlets near downtown.
The flashiest of the three is the new additional west wing, called the Great Hall, of the Fashion Show Mall. It feels like a huge, high tech airport terminal, which is appropriate cuz they say they can hold five Boeing 737s in the space. Also, you aren't going to be able to ignore the humougous "cloud" structure that hangs over the Strip entrypoint. Fortunately, due to its sheer size, high end shops and location a bit away from the main walking area of the strip, you won't encounter hordes of people.
Owned by the same company, the two other "outlets" are typical centers of the class, with the "Premier" being an outdoor one and the "Outlet Center" being indoor. As with most outlets, the one that you're going to prefer is the one that has the stores you like. Be sure to visit the management office and pick up a coupon book, they're free to AAA members if you show your card.

The outlet mall at the Primmadonna (sp?) are cool. It's expansive and have a great variety of shops. They have a good Kenneth Cole outlet, Guess, Banana Republic, Gap, Old Navy, Timberland, etc.

At the California/Nevada border (30 minutes from the strip) are outlet stores such as Ralph Lauren, Bath & Body Works, Old Navy, Eddie Bauer, etc. Can sometimes find a good deal there. Indoors, set up like a mall.
