Las Vegas’ best shopping secrets

Until Black Friday arrives, we’re in the midst of a thin sale season. But in a town where you can get a steak and shrimp dinner for $7.77 (Mr. Lucky’s in the Hard Rock Hotel) or a celebrity-style blowout for $35 (Platinum Entourage, 6670 S. Tenaya Way), we know the deal never dies in Las Vegas. Here are the city’s best shopping secrets:

Tucked away inside the Trails Village in Summerlin is Las Vegas’ newest affordable fashion shop, appropriately named Best Kept Secret Boutique (1930 Village Center Circle). Featuring $18 watches and denim around $20, this spot is designed for bargainistas. Don’t allow 19-year-old owner Lauren Feather’s youth to fool you. Selection strays away from juvenile prints and focuses on sleek, sophisticated style.

Sitting in the shadow of a pawnshop is an authentic Las Vegas gem: National Jewelry Liquidation Center (3021 Business Lane, near Harmon and Dean Martin). Get more bling for your buck inside this posh shop, which features pre-owned fine jewelry and watches for 50-70 percent less than original retail prices and delivers VIP service to regular Joes.

Feel beautiful on Mondays: Buy one eye shadow quad from Rain Cosmetics and get a second one in “Mix” for free. Go to and use the code MIXMONDAY.

Among the hogs in Las Vegas Harley-Davidson (2605 S. Eastern Ave.), road-warrior widows can shop a specially merchandised boutique featuring cute apparel and accessories from other brands while husbands scout for a new toy. Best bets are the oversize cocktail rings and Konvine foldable flats with crystal-encrusted skulls, both in the $30 price range.
