I’m rounding out my Las Vegas holiday shopping suggestions with one last post, featuring the amazing Forum Shops located at Caesar’s Palace on the Strip.
If you haven’t been to The Forum Shops, they truly are iconic, known for the beautiful sky-painted ceiling, cobble-stone floor, and moving and talking Roman statues. Hosting the world’s most famous high end brands, the mall is unlike any other I’ve ever experienced. And I’ve been to a TON of malls throughout this country and some abroad and still nothing really compares to The Forum Shops.
Celebrating their third annual GREAT GIVE event, The Forum Shops invited myself and a few other influencers to visit some of the retailers that are participating in this incredible event where proceeds of select retailers and restaurants sales will be donated to a charity or cause of their choice.
We started morning at Anne Fontaine, which I wasn’t familiar with at all but quickly fell in love with the timeless style. The store is known for their beautifully adorned collars that dress up any outfit. Additionally, the clothes themselves are tailored to fit different body types, from curves to straight fitting, to accentuate – or perhaps not – what you have as a woman. Anne Fontaine is donating to the Anne Fontaine Foundation.
The next stop is one of my faves, Donald Pliner, where I snagged a sneak peak of their new spring collection, as well enjoyed viewing more of their current fall and winter. If you haven’t bought a pair of Donald Pliner shoes it is TOTALLY worth it. The shoes are probably the most comfortable heels I have ever worn. The single pair I do have I wear ALL the time (hint: you can view the boots I love in several in of my Instagram posts and they are faux snakeskin). Donald Pliner is donating to the American Cancer Society.
From there we went to Mulberry, which was also new to me. It was great to learn how the brand came about and that it was a family effort, with the money to start the company funded by the owner’s parents and the logo being designed by his sister. The leather bags from Mulberry are truly timeless but also have flair in that you can switch out the shoulder strap for some of their bags. Also an interesting thing is Megan Markle is a fan of the brand! Mulberry is donating to the Public Education Foundation.
We then ventured to Pandora where we viewed their new holiday collection with The Christmas Spectacular Starring The Radio City Rockettes. Just as the Rockettes are flashy, their new collection embodied a bit of it with the class of Pandora. I particularly loved how you could purchase a charm to be placed within an ornament. Special to this store is the Las Vegas collection of charms. Pandora is donating to Opportunity Village.
Afterwards we stopped at Montblanc. Typically when one thinks of pens, most thing they are great as a gift for men, but Mont Blanc offers something for both genders. Specifically they feature a Marilyn Monroe collection with a pen modeled after the iconic star:
The design of the Muses Marilyn Monroe was inspired by the iconic Ferragamo high-heels, which Marilyn wore, reflecting her femininity and sensuality. The color of the writing instrument refers to her signature lipstick (Ruby Tuesday by Max Factor). The shape of the clip with pearl recalls her jewelry and love of pearls.
Additionally, the store showcased their amazing augmented paper which allows you to write on traditional paper but have those notes or drawing transferred to your mobile device, computer, or wherever else electronically. Montblanc is donating to St. Jude’s Research Hospital.
By the time we finished all that we were ready to eat and headed over to The Palm Las Vegas for an incredible meal. If you haven’t checked out the iconic The Palm restaurant you truly should. I can’t promise you’ll be greeted by gladiators as we were, but the restaurant is adorned with caricatures of celebrities as well as their loyal customers drawn on the walls. And their food is delicious. I had the filet medallions with mashed potatoes with red wine, cheesecake for dessert and finished with a nice cup of coffee. It was definitely a wonderful way to end a great day at The Forum Shops. The Palm Las Vegas is donating to Unshakeable.
Head over to The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace to shop all these great retailers as well as participate in GREAT GIVE from December 1-12, 2018.
