It’s a bummer when summer ends, but Back-to-School shopping certainly is the silver lining, isn’t it? And let’s face it, you don’t even have to be in school to take advantage of the sales and store events. Heck, I graduated eons ago, and I STILL ensure that I benefit from great Back-to-School shopportunities.
So sharpen your pencils (and your mind) and pull out your Trapper Keeper (do they still make those?); take notes! These are the hottest sales and store events happening in Las Vegas this month. Have a great school year.

At Town Square’s Armani Exchange, you can save a whopping 50% on all spring and summer fashion until August 17th. Meanwhile, at ANGL, save 25%-65% on all items through the end of the month.
While at Town Square, stop by Silver Post and save 25% on Moonstone items. Just mention Lollie Shopping at checkout. You’ve got until the end of the month to take advantage of this special promotion. Don’t miss out. Moonstone was discovered in ancient times. It’s a transparent to translucent stone that has a colorless to milky hue that is typically found showing a reflective adolescence in a pinkish to bluish hue, similar to an opal. Simply gorgeous, Moonstone could be a chic, elegant addition to your back-to-school or fall career wardrobe. (This discount is not available on clearance or sale items.)
Another great Town Square promotion is happening at Bohme, one of my favorite affordable fashion boutiques. Use code LVLOLLIE25 and save $25 when you purchase $100 of fashion or more. But save 30% off one item when you use code LVLOLLIE30. These discounts apply in-store at the Las Vegas Bohme store only, and expire August 31st. Update your autumn apparel now.

Have you ever noticed that fountain at Miracle Mile Shops? Did you know that the coins dropped into the fountain each month are donated to a charity? It’s true. And this month’s donations will go to Communities in Schools of Nevada, one of my favorite nonprofit organizations. So when you shop the retail center, be sure to make a wish or two and drop some coins into the fountain.
Start your Miracle Mile Shops exploration at bebe, when the boutique launches its fall styles August 13-16. But from now through the 9th, receive a third ring for free when you purchase two rings at Brighton Collectibles. At Chinese Laundry get 50% off select clearance styles.
At Desigual, save 50% from now through the 23rd on spring and summer styles. Considering it continues to be warm in Vegas through October, this is a sale worth checking out.

When I was a kid in school, we had a very profound saying that we all lived by: “Frankie says relax.” And with a new school year upon us, that’s exactly the mantra we need. So give yourself a nourishing MOROCCANOIL treatment from South Point Hotel’s Costa del Sur Spa and Salon. The property is offering a 50-minute hand treatment for $115 and the Ultimate Moroccan Manicure and Pedicure for $120. But if you want a full-on detoxifying and invigorating MOROCCANOIL body treatment, try the Morroccan Ritual for $175. This journey includes MOROCCANOIL’s Scalp Treatment and Hydrating Mask that are warmed then massaged into the scalp and throughout the hair, so you are rejuvenated from head to toe.
