With a Grand Opening public event planned for October 9, 2014, I got an insider’s sneak peek at the brand new Dillard’s location at Downtown Summerlin, as the retailer’s team excitedly filled shelves and racks with the hottest fall fashion. The space is phenomenal. Boasting 200,000 square feet of fashion for the whole family, cosmetics, accessories, home decor, and even luggage, this new Dillard’s destination is destined to become the must-shop spot for Las Vegas residents and even visitors who seek to explore the city beyond the Strip.
“We went after fashion in a big way,” says Andie Armstrong, Store Manager. “You’re going to find fashion pieces you won’t find anywhere else.” I totally believe her, too, because as I toured the unfinished store, I spotted quite a few pairs of shoes, boots, and dresses that I had not seen at any other retailer. My shopping list is filling up.
But let’s be honest here: the reason we shop in-store is for the overall sensory experience. While shopping online can sometimes be convenient, the event lacks ambiance and interaction. However, at Dillard’s Downtown Summerlin, that’s what you can expect to find – an enticing sensory experience that combines friendly interaction with sublime ambiance.
When the store opens, you can look forward to stellar customer service and knowledgeable associates. I actually witnessed them taking product education classes. And the design and decor enhance the moment, featuring chic Italian marble floors, exotic hardwoods, ceiling drops, and even custom pillars. It’s just gorgeous, stunning, and jaw-dropping.
Now, let’s talk brands, because after all, those are my favorite! I saw a mouth-watering collection of Vince Camuto shoes and an impressive Chanel beauty boutique. The Coach shop is to die for, and there’s even going to be a cozy area for Kiehl’s. Other brands you’ll find at Dillard’s Downtown Summerlin include Michael Kors, Antonio Melani, Lauren Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Sam Edelman, Kensie, MAC, Dior, Elizabeth Arden, Bobbi Brown, Steve Madden, Frye, UGG Australia, Donald J Pliner, Botkier, Dooney & Bourke, Fossil, Givenchy, Kate Spade, Marc by Marc, Ferragamo, Versace, Hugo Boss, Ray-Ban, Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry, Oakley, Gucci, Levi’s, Jessica Simpson, Guess, Volcom, and Converse, just to name a few. The store will also feature fashion from American designer Karen Kane, who will be making a personal appearance on October 11th.
Summerlin, a suburb of Las Vegas, has always been host to some good shopping, but now with Downtown Summerlin, this residential area is really going to have access to some amazing finds, without having to travel to busy and bustling Las Vegas Boulevard. And with Dillard’s as an anchor in this new shopping destination, it’s safe to say that now, at last, the shopping scene in Summerlin is fully complete.
Join me at the Dillard’s Grand Opening event Thursday, October 9th, 11011 Sage Park Drive (Sahara and 215), beginning with a ribbon cutting at 9:30 am. Come back to Lollie Shopping for more details on Dillard’s giveaways, gifts with purchases, and meet-and-greet personal appearances.
