Shoppers Rejoice!

New stores help Friday turn black this year

Despite the chaos, Black Friday can still be effortless—style-wise, that is. Three brands known for making casual look chic recently opened new stores in Las Vegas: Kipling, UGG Australia and True Religion Brand Jeans.

Known for its cheeky monkey logo and high-quality casual handbags, luggage, book bags and small accessories, Las Vegas’ first Kipling store is now open in the Las Vegas Premium Outlets and equipped to add color and fun to the experience of Las Vegas shoppers. Standout Kipling pieces include their coated-nylon handbags and other accessories, and boxed gift sets.

Meanwhile, the recent delay of the grand opening of the world’s largest H&M at the Forum Shops has not deterred the continued growth of this favorite shopping complex. Burberry has expanded and renovated its luxurious location, while popular denim maker True Religion Brand Jeans opened a compact shop that features tops and outerwear, in addition to their famous white-stitched jeans. Included in their premium denim mix, surprisingly, are women’s petite and men’s big and tall sizes.

Also in the Forum Shops, sheepskin shoe brand UGG Australia just opened its first Las Vegas concept store—the 10th in the U.S.—complementing its evolution to a more fashionable design sense. This stylish development is evident in the brand’s signature handbags, which are pleasantly lightweight, and the studded collaboration with luxury label Jimmy Choo. Vegas worshipers will adore the UGG exclusive Swarovski Limited Edition Vegas Boots. Numbered one to 100, the boots are $800, and they are simply amazing.

As a 35-year resident of Las Vegas, Mulroy has become intimately acquainted with the Valley’s water situation. She became the general manager of the Las Vegas Valley Water District in 1989 and gained a reputation of being Southern Nevada’s water warrior.
